    it is an awful habit, but i think i've experienced both sides.

    i used to finish a lot of and literally all of the games i'd get on the playstation classic/ps2 days. Hell i remember finishing an entire game in just one night.

    Now on my adulthood, it is more like ..depending on how much i like it. Dark souls 3 and all of the series sort of flied by and i have now like 500 hours of dark souls 3 alone.
    But then there are those games, in which i play once and yolo the rest.

    honestly its not all that surprising after all with so many games that are begging to take our limited time why not just focus on the games we enjoy the most?

    No, Not anymore since after i got a job, a wife, a kid, and a business.

    There's just too much games around, big studios keep churning out big titles and more and more sequels. Nowadays when i play a game, unless i really enjoyed the gaming experience and not find it too repetitive and boring.

    A good example would be to compare GTA V against Mafia 3. GTA V i enjoyed and i finish the game, played almost all the sidequest that seems worthy and tried all the possible routes for the heists. In comparison, Mafia 3 i just stopped halfway and just went to www.youtube.com and searched "Mafia 3 all cutscenes", and...... presto in my mind i had just finished the game.

    Story is important but nowadays with the excessively competitive landscape of things to consume your free time, if the gameplay isn't entertaining enough, most games will fail, and most did.

    I would say No, its very difficult especially since i work overnights for me to even play games now. Which is one reason why i like MOBA (like League) or mobile games because i can play one round and call it a day. But it does suck because there are so many great games and i play them only to stop after awhile and usually never go back to them.

    Totally yes. I've been playing games since 1996, and I was lucky to adopt a policy of "Story over Graphics". So I really want to know what's going on with the story of the game I'm playing no mater the gameplay or the graphics. The only exception on this rule is "For Honor" ... after 1 and a half month owning it, I have only played the first mission of the single player. I have fallen to the trap of buying many games without finishing the previous game, but I never uninstall it, I keep it in my pc until I find the time to complete it.

    I always like to finish games but i will play a few at a time on PC and consoles. If its from a series i wont get the new one until i have finished the one before it. It has to make sense for me to enjoy it!

    I try to maintain my gaming to max three (one or two is the best though) single player games with story so i do not forget about storylines and still remember controls. I try to keep my games to one singleplayer game but with multiplayer games i do not have such limit. I have damn big backlog but i try to finish all the good games though.

    I do finish them, as long as they are fun. I HATE it when games become repetitive or loose their drive as you could say. Games I particularly enjoy finishing are those that have some kind of mystery in themselves, for example, where the story is not completely clear and you have to look for clues in items descriptions (Dark Souls).

    i'd say its most of the times a yes, if the storyline is sorta linear and you just have to finish the story?

    Until I started on open world games. I get distracted way to easily. I'll stumble upon a side-quest and since you dont know if you'd ever get to do this quest again (esp when making decision in the future removes that possibility) I'd try to finish those before I continue on the main quest. However, during the side-quest I find another... and another...
    Fallout 4 is my most recent "culprit".

    Anyone else like me? :slightly_sad:

    Fallout/Elder Scrolls games are impossible to finish, man! I mean, when there's no real ending, and infinite exploration, my goodness... It annoys me just a bit that you can't really continue on AFTER the ending of Skyrim or Fallout New Vegas. If I'm not mistaken, Fallout 3 and Oblivion actually have endings that you can play afterward, with the game acknowledging that the main quest/story has finished, but it's uninteresting and nothing changes. The other 2 end the game entirely, then put you back at your last savepoint before the ending :/


    That being said, I actually just today finished playing Prince of Persia: Warrior Within for the first time ever! I had literally never played it before. And I also started on The Two Thrones! Really liking it so far.

    I'm trying to end games that I bought, but sometimes it's so hard. My last game that I started playing and stuck in half of it was Dragon Age: Origins. I want to end it, because it's great RPG, but I just can't get to it :/

    So, I'm the kind of person that empties their inbox, and deletes read emails. I do something similar with my games. I feel terrible not finishing a game, so I do play through them. Now, of course, I don't 100% everything, unless I'm really enjoying it, and generally have a rule of finishing the main story, and side quests that I stumble upon without using any guides or anything like that. If I have a game I really can't or don't want to finish, I move them in a separate steam folder where I can get back to them at a later point.

    For me it depends on the creators ability to capture the player into finishing the game to see how the story develops over the period of gameplay. As long as there is that I can finish the game I am playing. Now on the other hand if there is not much of story line then for me it has to be a nice smooth gameplay that can keep me interested long enough to finish it. So for me I'd say about 95%-100% of the time I do complete the game I am playing.

    its like a solid maybe , cause sometimes i feel like with the limited time i have (due to work and all ) i cant fully invest my time and totally immerse in a game that i want. So sometimes if the game doesn't feel good to play on surface level then i feel that finishing the game is quite hard for me .
