PILE OF SHAME (Everybody's got one)

So, this is going to end up being a companion list to a pile of movies, CDs, and books, that I also have not completed, but that's not what's important here.

What's important is HOW LARGE THIS STACK IS. Seriously, if I were going to try to complete this full list, it would probably take me multiple work weeks to do. Also, I need to dig up all my incomplete SNES and N64 games. But without further ado.....

Totally forgot Shattered Memories. There's one more for mine...

Glad someone else has a pile of shame nearly as large as mine. I'm knocking it down, but Amazon and Steam sales keep me topped off.

@Sparky_Buzzsaw: They definitely don't help! Actually, I might have a few more to add again...but I'm slowly knocking them down.

Some of mine I don't feel all that much shame about. There have been several instances when I've bought games at such a stupidly low price that if I get five or six hours out of them, I'm completely satisfied. Others, despite the money I plunked down, I can't beat due to one reason or another, mostly because of visual problems (Gears of War, sadly, is one of those games I love to watch people play and yet cannot beat even the simplest of levels, as with Killzone 2). The only games I really regret buying are those I haven't beat because of frustration with difficulty levels or gameplay. Darksiders, Final Fantasy XIII, and Singularity are the big three in that list, as I don't feel like I've played enough of each to warrant the prices I paid for them.

But the bulk of my Pile of Shame is comprised of my rainy day games, games that, like I said, I buy on steep discounts or sales. I usually keep 'em around for when I'm either in the middle of gaming doldrums with no major new releases to keep me entertained or when I'm flat-ass broke. Both of which apply right now, so I'm burning through a few of my rainy day/pile of shame games. Need to get on it, though, because that stack is definitely piling up.
