View Full Version : Do you finish every game you play?

I was just thinking about some of the games that I've played and I would guess that I've only completed about half of them if I'm lying through my teeth.

And when you complete them is it without the help of cheats/walkthroughs?

I rarely complete games. Seems like every time I get close something new comes out that I want to play. Happened with GTA3 (Vice City came out), Vice City (HCTP), etc.

I complete as many as I can. But if a game sucks, obviously I won't complete it, or if it's just a rental, I may not finish it. And then there's the fact that I don't play videogames during the semester.

Nope, I have a problem. I buy too much crap and distract myself.

If I like it, I complete it sans cheats. If it's okay, I complete it, and sometimes cheat to get it over with faster.

If I don't like the game, I don't finish it.

So far, the list of games in recent history is very small:

Silent Hill 2 *yawn*
FFX :|
GTA:VC (Though I picked it up mostly to dick around, not to win it...)

Usually. But lately, no. Last game I beat was The Getaway, which I loved, so I kept wanting to go back to it. Never got as into Vice City as I thought I would, and so stopped playing it.

I guess finishing seasons in HCTP could count..sorta.

01-21-2004, 03:06 PM
well for the most part, no.

I almost got GTA 3 complete then came VC and I got started on that then I had Budokai 2 and I completed that- with cheating, then Bustin Out and I'm workin on that so I got games that aren't complete and I got some that are but I haven't completed them all yet nope.

I like to finish games, making sure I can do/collect/finish everything that is humanly possible, especially in RPGs, I have to have done absolutly everything.

Sometimes I do this, sometimes I don't, if I finish a game that I don't fancy playing through again, i'll trade it in also.

I never finished GTA3 or Vice City

all my other games are Sports games, and you can't really finish those. I am on like my 10th season in NCAA Football 2004 though

Yeah usually

The only game that I haven't completed in recent memory, is Star Fox Adventures. I got about halfway through, then we bought Metroid Prime. The rest kind of explains itself.

Rarely. I like buying the type of games that you never 100% complete (such as N64 games like blast corps, diddy kong racing, perfect dark, etc.

I did however completely beat Goldeneye 64, including getting every cheat and 007 mode. :cool:

If it keeps me interested, and I can do it, then I will. If I get stuck, either I cheat myself through or I just leave it and move on to something else.

I think the last game I finished was Max Payne 2

Like stima said, the rest of my games are sports, which you cant really finish.

I used to pre-Gamecube

Every game I ever had on Super Nintendo or N64 I beat all the way through.

Now, however, out of the 18 GC games I have, I've only beaten a little more than half (beaten meaning gotten all the secrets, etc)

01-21-2004, 08:06 PM
I have benges of beating games.....but I go back and try and finish unfinished games

If I love a game I usually don't beat it....isn't that odd?

Like FF7 is my favorite game of all time, and I'm still playing it now

(for the 4th time over......without beating it at all)

But in the past month I have beaten Prince Of Persia, Splinter Cell, and Grim Fandango

I dont play video games anymore, but nah I never really "finished" the games I played.

Mostly because they were sports games.

01-21-2004, 09:58 PM
I usually end up finishing most of my games, but I don't really play them straight through them in like a week, I usually lose intreast, don't play it for a few months, and when I get bored I start playing again and get back into it.


01-21-2004, 10:19 PM
I've completed like...one or two games total.

Would have been higher probably, but after 13 years, I've finally released that the original Tetris DOESN'T end :mad:

02-02-2004, 02:31 AM
I complete them especially if I'm super eager to see the ending or want a storyline twist revealed and then I make sure to beat them an additional 5 more times to ensure I've mastered them. Yeah, I got problems. :(

02-02-2004, 02:59 AM
Yeah for the most part I do.

Even back during the NES days my mom would rent some from blockbuster and I would knock them out one by one.

Except for Rambo. I think I played it once for like 10 min and I couldn't do anything, let alone know what to do. My mom ended up taking it back and getting an exchange for a new title. I forget which one it was though. :o

I try my hardest to beat everygame I buy/hire, the only few I haven't passed were, exterminator, that last batte when the guy turns into a double of you, is damn hard :mad:

...I don't Think I've passed Resident Evil, but everything else I have... wait, and snake rattle and roll on nintendo, that game was hard to control :mad:

02-02-2004, 10:40 AM
Only game i didn't finish:

Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker
FFX- I am inside sin
FF6- Last boss

I did however completely beat Goldeneye 64, including getting every cheat and 007 mode. :cool:

I finished Goldeneye, Blast Corps and Diddy Kong Racing all totally 100%

They were absolute bastards to do, and my controller took a beating, but I was the only person to finish them all out of me and my friends :cool:

For my gamecube right now, I still haven't completed Mario Sunshine, Star Fox Adventures, Zelda:Windwaker and Luigi's Mansion. I've has these games for at least two years, but I just can't bring myself to finish them. I've had Luigi's Mansion ever since I first got a Gamecube when it first came out. I'm around the last level in LM and Star Fox. All are VERY GOOD games IMO, with Zelda being Excellent.
