I remain optimistic. This looks pretty great.

I usually do, but then again I seem to have a much higher tolerance for bad/average games than most people do. If it's short enough, I'll probably beat it sooner or later.
I admit I'm pretty bad about finishing any longer RPGs or RTS games, even if I'm enjoying them.
@sinusoidal: I totally agree with you on La-Mulana. I've put about 10 hours into it (using a guide/map) and it still was incredibly dense and hard to get into. Going back to it now feels almost hopeless since I've forgotten all the details of what I've already accomplished.
I also have a very soft spot for these types of games. I recently finished Aquaria which was great.
I really loved the game. I think it got a lot of unfair criticism for the RTS elements, which worked just fine. I played through the game with a controller on the hardest difficulty, and even then I didn't run into too much trouble until the very end, and I've always considered myself bad at RTS games. I can understand it not being everyone's cup of tea though.
- Cook, Serve, Delicious. I feel like this game should be talked about more, especially here in the GB community. For those of you that might not know; there's an achievement called "Forever Remembered" which you get by serving a Ryan Davis burger.
- Anodyne. Kinda like the weird, abstracted and dreamy indie version of A Link to the Past.
- Space Pirates And Zombies. If you can look past the generic and possibly misleading title, you'll find a surprisingly addictive 2D space action game with RPG elements. It does get pretty repetitive, so your mileage may vary.
- Aquaria. Underwater Metroidvania with amazing music and atmosphere.
- Botanicula. Possibly the most funny and adorable adventure game I've ever played.
Splinter Cell. It just got too hard and frustrating and I lost my patience with it. I think I've played up until the very same level at least three times.
Command & Conqer 3. I've beaten the GDI campaign twice, but I always lose steam halfway through the NOD campaign. Never even played the Scrin missions.
King's Bounty: The Legend. I'm pretty sure I can't be far from the end (again), and I have no idea why I can't push myself to finish it.
Wolfenstein 2009 is one of the best first person shooters of all time.
While I wouldn't go that far, I still think it was pretty great. The more powerful weapons in that game are incredibly fun to use.
