My List of Fails

Well everyone has that List of Fail (Good games we buy but never get around to playing).
Here’s my list of fail:

DS: Dragon Quest IV– It’s kind of a sad story with Dragon Quest IV. I heard so much positive things about this game from all my friends. I even went to the launch event and got an autographed copy of the game from the series creator- Mr. Yuji Horii, but I never even got around to playing the game for more than 2 hours and the next DQ game is on its way.

Nintendo Wii
: I still haven’t even beaten Donkey Kong Country Returns or Super Mario Galaxy 2. I’m pretty sure I’m near the very end of DKC, and I’ve enjoyed ever minute of it-co-op and single player. For some reason I just can’t find the time to sit down and turn on my Wii and just finish this classic retro master piece. I blame my OCD in trying to 100% ever level in the game before I advance. This usually forces me to replay the same level for minutes until I find all the collectibles. I’m not sure why I never finished Galaxy 2. I just left Mario at World 6; poor Princess Peach…

Sony PS3: Yes, I picked up a PS3 over the winter break. I’ve mainly been playing GT5 on it. Though I think I’m about done with the game. I did as much as I feel like doing in A-Spec and Special Events. I purchased all the cars I wanted and fully tuned them. Most important, I got to do a comparison of my IRL toy to the virtual version in GT5. Physics needs a little work, sound of the engine is off, but it feels like the virtual version handles like the real world counterpart and for the most part, the details of the car are spot on accurate (probably due to the fact that it is a premium car).
I’ve still have to do a lot of catching up on the Sony titles like Uncharted 1 + 2, LittleBigPlanet1 +2, Infamous, which are all just sitting there waiting to be played.

PC: None steam games, I never finished the single player in StarCraft2. I’ve made it to Char but never stopped playing Multiplayer to finish the single player.
I’m still not all caught up from all the games I bought from the Winter Steam Sale. I got Half-Life 1 (I’ve own the Orange for a few years now, played HL2 and Ep1+2 countless times, but I never played HL1). I have the game all DL’d to my laptop so I can play it where ever I carry my laptop but I just can never find the time to play it even though I know its a must for all PC gamers.
In addition, I’ve picked up Amnesia: The Dark Descent which according to all my friends is a very scary game. I was going to play Resident Evil 5 over winter break with my buddy, but they decided that they didn’t want to finish RE5 so I never got around to completing the game. I’ve finally have all the Borderlands DLCs and nice new level cap and more rare loot to hunt thanks to the DLCs being on sale. In addition, I have Monday Night Combat to play with friends since it was finally released, though I did play a good amount of that game when it was still in Beta. MNC’s Blitz mode is tons of fun with 3 other friends.

Finally, on top of all of that, I still have around 10 custom L4D2 maps I still need to run through.
The reason I have so many backlogged PC games…TeamFortress2. Valve keeps updating the game and I keep going back to it each major update and play that game more than all the games on my list of PC fails combine. >_< And I don't even care for the new items in TF2 or the hats valve keeps adding =(

    My list of unplayed games is getting pretty ridiculous. I started setting monthly goals for myself, so I can keep myself on track.

    Super Mario Galaxy 2 and the Uncharted games are on my list too. I’m not sure when I’ll get around to them though =/ RE5 is the next co-op game we’re playing.

    On DK Returns, I decided to skip the time trials, which was originally taking me a while. I found out they didn’t actually unlock anything. I still got all the puzzle, KONG, and temple pieces at least!

    I tried monthly goals, but I just end up playing TF2 or just messing around in GT5 rather than sitting down on and actually playing/ making progress in my games.

    I could never get around TF2.
    I first had it for the Xbox 360. I tought it was a pretty awesome game! so simple, epic and funny.
    So I decided to buy the “enhanced” (or thats what I used to think) from Steam.
    It sucked, its a completely different version than the one that comes on The Orange Box.
    I… cant… get… around TF2 for PC, they all have epic items, the maps are kinda different, theres just so much new stuff, its, for me, unplayable.
    Oh yeah, the updates suck, sometimes for whatever reason my internet becomes really really slow, turns out it was Steam updating TF2… ARGH im so mad. asdhajksdsad.
