    I loved eternal darkness! I am tellin yah, every time I saw the "your controler has been disconnected" I would jump up, freak out, and run towards the system to only find that I have been dupped again.

    Eternal Darkness didn't get me a few times, though.
    The "Volume change" was something I instantly saw through as the volume bar was different ;)

    Old SSI game called "The Summoning". I loved that game, thought it was fantastic - even today I think for its time it was an amazing game. I never actually made it entirely through.

    Wizardry 4 - Return of Werdna. Yep, going OLD school. Apple ][e

    That game was REALLY hard to crack. This was before the internet and the only way to get through a tough spot was to call their Hint Line for $$$. I got 80% through and gave up.

    Almost didn't finish Morrowwind. I was to side tracked with all the other quest. But I did finish it.

    Ah, Morrowind. never finished the main storyline, got distracted by sidequests and mods. I've been wanting to pick it up for some time now... maybe I will.

    for me there have been lots of games i started but never finished. FFVII is a big one for me, i played through a used copy I bought at a garage sale and the 3rd disc was bad. by that time I was over it and never got around to finishing it, I still have the save file on my old memory card. The game I regret not getting 100% on is kingdom hearts 1 and 2. There were so many more videos you unlocked if you did that, and I never did.

    I have a few. Mass Effect on my 360. There is a sequel out now and I absolutely loved the original. I'm very far in the game but CoD4 came out and I played it everyday since then. (unhappy with mw2).

    FF13, Even though it just came out, i lost steam in playing it due to being preoccupied.

    Guild Wars, my character is old as the hills from tyria, still havent finished any full games on this, need a good guild.

    Prey. Mostly because I started playing through on the old Dell laptop (P-4m 1600, GF4Go..) got a new computer, started again..then stopped because I got busy with work and this is one of those games where I only want to start playing when I have several hours of contiguous free time at night without people bothering me...

    My other excuse was having to drag out the disc to play. The most recent patch I know about removes the CD check so that excuse is gone. :)

    Not to change the subject but games I regret not ever playing: Half-life (Liked the demo), HL2 (Still have no clue what evil things Steam will do to the computer), The Turok game that came out a couple years ago (a 3D game without dinosaurs is like a car without a prime mover)..and I still have a coupon for Dirt 2 that remains unused (see Steam comment).

    On that subject change; Steam does nothing evil. It's fine :)

    I regret not finishing the two NWN2 expansions... Buuuut I've just restarted the OC with a Lawful Good female Air Gensai Fighter, so I'll probably move onto MotB with her followed by SoZ.

    Metroid Prime was a great game, but I felt very much the same way about it. A visually dark game with graphics that deserved better than the Gamecube's hardware. Word felt too static and exploration was far too long and confusing.

    :wtf:" alt=":wtf:" />

    You do realize that when it was released Metroid Prime had arguably the best graphics of ANY console game ever made before it? Gamecube hardware was awesome and as for "long, confusing" exploration, welcome to a Metroid game. /end residual Gamecube fanboy rant. :D

    As far as games I regret not finishing I would have to say Hungry Hungry Hippos. One day I got it out and set up the whole thing only to find that my save file had tragically become corrupted. I never had strength to recover from the heartbreak and start over. :bawling:

    p.s. Octavarium > A Change of Seasons :p

    Okay for real though. (now that I got the troll out of my system) Of all the games I can remember playing I hate that I never finished Chrono Trigger. I always heard such great things about it. I started playing it on an emulator at school some 6 years ago but some teacher was like, "That doesn't look like a 15 page paper about rabbit breeding." (How very observant of them.) Then I had to stop playing and go back to writing about rabbits. a.k.a. Print a bunch of rabbit pictures, staple them together, write my name on the front page, and turn it in. I got a B-. Agricultural awareness class = good times.

    Hmm.. let me think..

    -Super Mario Galexy I technically beat but my little sister flipped the power during the credits.

    -Breath of Fire 3: This was my favorite game as a kid (5-7) and I cant remember how many times i rented that and hid it from my parents when it was time to give it back. However, I was young and sucked at RPG's. I hope to find it again and finish it though.

    -Legend of Dragoon: Plain and simple; That crystal boss thing is one annoying (am i allowed to use profanity on forums?)

    -Sword of Mana (for the GBA): Im still currently working on this game but its incredibly frustrating that there is almost no way to truly know what the hell your supposed to do.

    -Legend of Mana: Great game, but i found that the story (if there was one) was a little lacking. I loved the gameplay but the PS disk we had was scratched to all hell and it froze every 10 minutes.

    -Turok (N64): This was one of the best N64 games ive ever played as a kid and even now. I only personally know one person who ever beat this game without cheating.

    -Ur-Quan Masters/Starcon II: This game was incredibly frustrating to play and i wasted a good portion of my life just to get through it (there must be like 10 000 random unimportant solar systems). I dont exactly remember why i stopped playing it but i do remember that I was on my way to fight the Ur-Quan mothership (or whatever that was).

    On a different note, im glad to say that Ive just beaten Final Fantasy Tactics for the PS and it was one of my favorite PS games ever! That last boss fight was ridiculously easy compared to fighting that white caped guy (what was his name again?) and Dycedarg.

    Morrowind got pretty confusing with all those quests and no markers for their locations, but looking back I really wish I soldiered through it.
    Dead Space I had to give back to the friend it was on loan from.
    Metroid Prime 2 had me stuck at one of the bosses for so long that I'm still afraid to try.

    Bioshock, i am apparently only an hour or so from the end but i find the game just terrible! I loved the book it is based on Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"

    Killzone 2 which suffered from generation changing graphics but terrible game play. This is also the case for Unreal 2

    Overlord and Assassin's Creed are unfortunately never finished and just gathering dust.

    Lastly Supreme Commander for 360, PC version is great but my comp can't handle it 360 is too difficult due to crappy radial menus DAMN THOSE RADIAL MENUS I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE!

    Persona 3 FES. It was a lot of fun but that game is just way too long. I never even started on the bonus content.

    i really regret not finishing the first legend of zelda, because it's such a great game to me yet i can never find the 3rd temple and just keep going around the overworld killing things.

    I didn't realize that there was a set order to the temples in the first Zelda game.
  • edited Jun 2010
    there isn't but they are numbered and so i like to try and do them in order which i haven't bothered to try and get a map/walk-through and this really makes me want to attempt it again

    I'm a little afraid to admit that I've still never finished the original Half Life.

    Gotta avoid it and turn the jet engine thing on.

    I haven't beat Half Life either. Always lost my save games to reformatting. I think I might have mentioned that earlier in this thread though o_O

    Baldur's Gate.

    I got bored a few hours in, I hate having to sleep everytime I have to cast a spell. lol. Sad thing is I think I bought the expansion pack as well. One of these days I really have to dedicate a long weekend finishing all these games I have.
