    I used to buy new games all of the time and move on from a game with out ever finishing it. It had got to the point that I never finished a game because I was always looking to start the next one. Sometimes I would never open a game because another newer one interested me more.

    About 5 years ago I adopted a policy that I could not buy a new game until I finished the current game I was playing. I really like getting to the end of the stories and seeing how things turn out. I probably missed out on so much good stuff in the past.

    As a bonus I've saved a lot of money because I don't buy as many games as I used to; and by time I do go buy the next game I wanted to play its usually cheaper that it would have been.

    So basically my question is, do you finish games?

    Yes for sure. It'd drive me crazy not to. I always do all the side quests too, and try to collect everything/get most of the achievements, unless it's going to take hours wandering around or replaying the whole game. I have quit a couple games because I couldn't stand them like in Far Cry 2 where your map is super hard to use and it takes forever to drive anywhere. If a game becomes completely unfun then what's the point...

    I try to get finish most of the side missions as well. But some of the collectibles in games have gotten out of hand (I'm looking at you Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs). For those games I just focus on the missions.

    I just finished Mirror's Edge Catalyst on the xbox and was surprised that the achievement was marked as rare with less than 10% of players earning it.

    Kind of led me to asking the question above.

    Definitely agree there, Catalyst was a bit overkill...every 30 seconds you would find something. It was kind of fun and seemed like you where collecting a lot but took away the rareness of them. I did actually get all the yellow grid balls since at the end they showed up on the map and were pretty easy to find and finish up then. But all the electrical boxes no way. I really like the Assassin's Creed's, the map is crazy filled with a million things to do tho:eek_:. Haven't played the Watchdog's yet, but 2 came with my Samsung SSD for free so I bought 1 on Steam sale, just haven't gotten to them yet.

    I TRY to finish games... Sometimes I don't for one reason or another. Since I make gaming videos, it somehow becomes harder to finish games. If I don't enjoy it all that much, nor does my audience, I don't finish it. Some games are just too hard and I don't feel like spending 10 hours on 1 game, especially on a single difficult level.
    On the other hand, I never finished Far Cry 3 simply because I got too busy. I'll probably stream it at some point though. And I never finished Borderlands 2 either because of one really depressing part.

    I actually try to but sometimes I get frustrated and rage quit the game and don't get back into it after a few months later. That's when I forgot what happened :slightly_sad:

    I try to reward myself buying myself a new game after I completed one.

    I almost never ragequit. I "sad-quit" (Like rage quite, but sadness instead of rage. (feel free to suggest a better term, lol)) Borderlands 2 because Bloodwing died.

    I don't. When I am playing a game and a new game comes out. I will play the new game instead. Sometimes if I get hooked on a game I will forget about the games I didn't finish yet. I know it is waste of money but later on I will TRY to finish it. I don't know when, but soon.

    Never know when. Lol, it's funny how that works, but it's true! I tell myself the same thing. But when you have over 200 games total, some are bound to be forgotten entirely :slightly_sad:

    I always finish games, atleast main story line, some side quests etc. Not 100% with collectables however.
    I do actually play multiple games at the same time from time to time, but I can't remember a game that I haven't finished. Only games that were too hard to finish that I came back to much later :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    I'm like @DragoNate and @RAZER|RaptureHearts - I try to finish games.

    Sometimes life gets in the way: taking care of family stuff, working, surfing Razer Insider, Overwatch, etc. I think I still have Dark Souls II on my XBox 360 (yes, 360), and haven't finished it or even touched it since Overwatch came out. That combined with the rule that I don't play 360 games that might frighten my toddler while he's around, mean that I probably won't get a chance to finish it for a while.

    First first of all the google offline Dino :^). I try to finish games, and squeeze the last bit of fun out of them, but then again there is that one MLB game I have only played for 5 mins...
    Like for halo for instance, I played the campaign in every difficulty except easy. Then again I don't really buy new games anymore as I don't own a newer gen console.

    Do you have an Xbox One? I don't yet. Still have my 360 and have been streaming Skyrim from it for a month or so lately, which is actually pretty fun!
    It's kinda nice to go back to Skyrim actually. I started fresh because I already got so far into my main save that I actually glitched the game to let me enhance (smithing, enchanting, potions, pretty much ANYTHING) my gear into the millions. Literally. No exaggerations. It was fun, but now, even on the easiest difficulty, starting from the very beginning, I die. A lot.
    I miss my ultra powerful weapons my health being increased to like 3 million and hp regen at 10000% lol

    This is an issue I also deal with. I have a 5 year old, and ever since he started paying attention to what I was playing I've been very conscious about not playing a lot of the games I would like to play in front of him. This has really reduced my playing time.

    I recently bought Lego Jurassic Park, so that we could play a game together. I look forward to many gaming sessions together in the future.

    I always finish games -- Here's the thing though, I have a huge backlog of games that I still need to play, because I won't actually *start* a game until I know that I also have the time and desire to finish it. :)

    I complete the parts that are relevant to the story or lore. For the extra parts however, I try to finish them whenever time permits or when I'm bored of other games

    I would say it's a yes and no from me, i have finished some games 100%, these are the games that i really liked, but i have also abandoned quite a few games after playing it for only a while or finishing the main quest.
