I didn't finish Luigi's Mansion 2 because the 3rd mansion is a real low point. But I'm getting back into it now, and the 4th and 5th mansions are an improvement.

I got Kingdoms of Amalur off PS+ for free, then stopped playing it when The Last of Us came out.

Tried to go back, but it didn't re-grab me.

Where's the been too busy at work choice? I've been working 10 – 12 hour days staring at Excel logs, doing photoshop, and managing more projects then ever. I'm too burnt out after work to finish anything. I grabbed Kingdoms of Amalur and got 6 hours in and just haven't had the energy to jump back in.

I youtubed the last few hours of The Last of Us. I wasn't bored, I just wasn't having any fun with the mechanics and wanted to see the story play out without the hassle and time commitment of personally jumping through the hoops.

(Keep in mind just my opinion people)

Boarderlands 2 got boring for me fast. After playing the original for months, and hoping on BL2 it felt like I was going through the motions. Just go to an area shoot up waves of enemies and repeat. It didn't really feel all that new to me, and I wished the characters had more then just 1 ability.

I never finished Fuse because I had to return it sadly. I was beginning to really enjoy it come the third mission. I just don't have the time to complete a game as quickly as I used to.

The only game in the last like 5 years i own that i haven't beaten would be Alpha Protocol. I beat a couple "countries", was actually enjoying it alot. Then i had to go away for 2 weeks, when i came back I had completely forgotten what was going on in the story, so I wanted to restart. A bunch of other big games i was excited for came out and i never got back around to beating it.

Now i can't cus my videocard is fried and I'm not gonna grab a new one just yet.

In addition to "got bored", I think there could've been a separate option for "game turns out to be bad, is not worth my time". That happens sometimes.

It was the Witcher 1, cause it's old as hell. I'm still gonna try to finish though, but it's taking forever.

Uh... which one? I've got something of a backlog.

I guess I'll say Red Dead Redemption because (and this is an opinion) it was fucking boring. Let's run across the Western frontier and occasionally shoot some guys for some son of a bitch in the false hope that he'll give us a tiny bit of info, when he didn't give us any info the last fifteen times we killed some sorry fuckers for him! Engaging storytelling at its finest! Fuck that game!

...man, I'm glad notifications aren't working at the moment.

As someone who finishes probably 99% of the games i play, and always on the most difficult setting(not nightmare) i dont know if i will go back to RE 6. Like Brad, I hold RE 4 as one of the best games ever, and this game is just terrible in every way. I made it through Leons campaign and started Chris's where i think 'm in the third act. The camera, controls, constantly getting knocked down its...its just horrible. Ive played some bad games which ive finished, most recently Afterfall:insanity, but this game is a mess of epic proportions. My gaming instinct is still telling me to go back, but sometimes you just gotta cut a game loose.

I usually have 3-5 games going at once, and I HATE leaving one unfinished, but at the same time, there are too many good games to finish boring ones. Dragon's Dogma for example.

I didn't finish QUBE because it had turned into a different game that, coincidentally, wasn't fun.

I'm weird with games. My mind set is that I should wait to I guess savor the experience. So I limit myself to how much I play and eventually just never go back to it. It's a weird thing because I hold myself back and then lose interest. But lately i've been finishing all my games. The Last of Us, Metro, Injustice and Bioshock to name a few.

I played 5 minutes of Fable III, got the achievement for holding hands with 20 people and then decided never to touch it again. Looked SO boring.

I had Dead Space 3 from Gamefly for 2 months. Played about 4 hours of it. I was mad uninterested in it. And I loved DS 1+2.

I didn't finish The Witcher 2 because I think BioShock Infinite was coming out. I really need to go back and finish it at some point, because I'm on the last act and I really love the game, but I'm worried I that I've forgotten the combat and where I'm at would be too hard. I want to see how the story plays out though...hopefully I'll have time over the summer.

How about the game was so bad I couldn't be asked to finish it option? For me, The Force Unleashed II was so god awful I turned it off and threw it under a pile of games and haven't looked at it since.

I typically finish the majority of the games I play, for better or worse.

Looking back, the last game I stopped playing was the recent Twisted Metal over a year ago. I had a feeling I was going to dislike it, but I rented it away. It reaffirmed that car-combat was boring and the 90's, Todd McFarlane-like style was dumb as hell.

At one point it would've been Dark Souls. I finished Demon's Souls, but with this, I got to the end boss and kept on dying. I was okay at parrying/riposting, but my stats were a certain way, so it only took away a fraction of his health each time. Eventually, I would panic and die. I started it back up again two months later, grinded for a couple hours, and finally finished it.

A lot of Wii games, too. Skyward Sword was probably a good game, but I just do not care for Zelda anymore; I stopped maybe 2/3 in. And as much as I appreciated the Super Mario Galaxy games, I got halfway done with both and said, "Yep, this is Mario."

Eternal Sonata was the last game I didn't finish because there really was no reason to. I got about 60% of the way through and the combat was still just mashing buttons with little strategy and the story was generic and boring even if it had some decent style. In a lot of ways it's like Lost Odyssey. There are great things about the style and chapter intermissions, but the actual majority of the game is just boring and kind of pointless.

I would also say Skyward Sword because I started both these games around the same time and I felt like I wasn't missing anything. I got most of the way through and realized it was just getting more tedious. Zelda really needs to try something different to get me to care at this point. Making another horribly paced, uninteresting Ocarina of Time isn't going to cut it anymore.

Kingdoms of Amalur and El Shaddai bored me from the first moment I played them. Terrible waste of my time and I even tried plugging away at KoA for a good 10 hours or so. Not fun at all.

Demon's Souls was ok for a while before I got to the Poison Swamp and said, "fuck this".

I almost never finish my games. It has nothing to do with horrible controls, well except for one, but usually I just play until I no longer feel a need to and then uninstall. I'm a man who lives on whims.

@saturdaynightspecials: Which part did you get to? It switches things up a couple different times. Seriously though, that game is like 4-5 hours tops, you may as well just finish it.

I still need to go back and finish both RE: Revelations and Far Cry 3. I just sort of lost interest for a bit. Definitely my hope two finish those two next.

I put 50+ hours into Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. It was my listening to music/podcasts game for a good few weeks. But then The Old Gods expansion for Crusader Kings II came out, and that was the end of that. I still intend to go back to it, though.

I also stopped playing Super Mario 3D Land because it got hard/repetitive.

Metal Gear Rising. I got so fatigued a few missions after that stupid monsoon fight and Jack the Ripper segment. I just looked up the boss fights on youtube and they looked equally as boring so I sent it back to gamefly.

A lot of time it's a mix between "got bored / burnt out" and "got a new game / started playing an old game". I have way too many games that I haven't beat...trying to fix that now.

I found out the part of the ending of Red Dead Redemption and maybe that is why I put it down. I kept telling myself that I need to know how and why but... Maybe someday.

I didn't finish Nier, cause I found it's weak points to far outweigh it's stron points. Loves the world, the story and characters. But playing the game was just terrible.

Being bored is winning handily, besting the next highest by 40pts.

Did you find the game to be boring from the get go OR was it just too long?
