If I am forcing myself to finish the game it just becomes work :(
I agree, it's like working the last few hours of a shift at work. You don't want to, but you have to.
Isn't that the worst? Borderlands 2 was like that for me. I just wanted it to end, but they kept dragging on and on. Even games I love, like Bioshock (after the Andrew Ryan bit), was just dreadful.
Now that I am in a place in my life where I have more money than time, I don't think I'm going to be finishing as many games that don't hold me until the end. What I am trying to say is that I don't care about finishing game X to feel as though I got my money out of it. If the game can only keep my attention until the second act, if I really care, I can look up the ending on YouTube and move on to playing something else.
@sogeman: It's a bummer, but yeah. It's not been as big of an issue until this past week. If it doesn't get better I'll be giving it to my brother-in-law becuase his kids love the Kinect and the Kinect Party game. I have so many games I loved on it, and I hate to trade them in to GameStop or sell them on Amazon. Hopefully the next Xbox will have a system on a chip and I can keep them.
