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.....

List items

  • AutoLog is actually impeding my progress in this game, as I'm more interested in beating my friends' times on races I've already completed than actually playing the fucking game.

  • A game I borrowed from a friend, played one puzzle of, lost for a year, paid the friend BACK for, and then finally found; I never really gave this one a chance.

  • Never really got far in this one (or any of the Mario & Luigis) even though I do rather enjoy them. You'll see a trend here...

  • I'd put Partners In Time on the list if I could actually find the damn game. I think I'm probably about two hours into all three M&L games.

  • Also include Platinum, as whichever version I eventually decide to play will be mostly irrelevant. I stopped beating Pokémon games in the Gold/Silver generation, but I know I am CAPABLE of doing so due to a run that took me far into Fire Red pretty recently.

  • Here, it will be Gold if I ever finish it. I actually like this generation; I'm at about the fourth gym right now.

  • And here's the ridiculous section where I include every fucking Final Fantasy game I own. Never completed ANY of them, probably never will.

  • Never even started this one, though, as I only own it on the DS, and my brother prefers it. Also, I owned III at one point and sold it because it's just complete rubbish.

  • I have actually gotten very far into FFV, but unfortunately that save was accidentally deleted at one point. I'm nearing the second crystal, I think? Almost no progress into FFVI, though.

  • I actually think Disc 2 of this copy might be broken, so maybe I can't complete this one. I have played through Disc 1 in the past, though. No idea if I'd keep that save or just start over.

  • I've never gotten far in this one, only just barely getting out of the opening city once about five years ago. Also, never owned a copy of FFVIII.

  • Somewhere I have a copy of this, but I didn't find it for the shame pile. I like a lot of things about this game, but it is DEEPLY flawed, similar to a lot of games on this list.

  • Again, I like a lot of things about it, but it's deeply flawed. The mechanics are just enough off that every large encounter is a hassle in this game. Also, it's more labyrinthine than its predecessor, so I never got that far into it.

  • Bought this on a whim when I wanted a new PS2 game to play for some reason. Never put it into a PS2 though...

  • Traded a copy of Uncharted 2 with a friend for it, actually. Never put it in a PS3.

  • I've beat God of War twice, and I got much farther into GoWII than I had in the past, but I still never beat that one.

  • However, that didn't stop me from playing GoWIII, which is a great game, but I just never took the time to complete it.

  • Just received a copy of this for my birthday. Why didn't I play this when it came out?

  • Actually an accidental purchase within the N&B case. I don't think Viva really has an ending (like Animal Crossing doesn't have an ending) but I'd be interested in seeing if it does.

  • Actually beat Borderlands, but I need to play the add-on packs. Beat Dr. Ned.

  • Just arrived at my house yesterday (that's 6/11/11 for post-launch viewers.) Still in the shrink-wrap.

  • Played the first handful of encounters after the wake-up. Actually really dug this game, though, so chalk it up to extensive Mortal Kombat play.

  • My copy of this is currently at a friend's house near-indefinitely. Partly because I don't like this game very much. Fixed camera angles in an action game are a real turn-off if a lot of the game takes place in hallways.

  • Never put this one in, as when I try to play them by release I wind up playing 1 and if I play chronologically I play 3. Heard this game is REAL rough, though.

  • That said, when I try to play this one, I have the most fun, but it's also wicked hard!

  • I'm at license grade/class/whatever B, I think. Kind of a bummer that there aren't more racing lines in the game, as everything else is AMAZING!

  • I always liked Wind Waker until the Triforce collection sequence. Then the game gets more deeply flawed than Twilight Princess, though TP's flaws turn up sooner.

  • Finally beat The Crucible in this game, so I'm about to enter Stage 2 of the game. Trying to decide if I care enough about sidequests to actually do all of them before moving forward.

  • I burned through over half this game in co-op in one day with Jake (my fellow podcaster on Nerf'd.) Then we were tired and haven't played since. He has already completed this game.

  • I've seen this game all the way through, but never completed it myself. I've gotten super-far in the past, though, so I might never actually finish this one. That said, this is still my favorite Kingdom Hearts game.

  • Now, I've never gotten very far in this game, but I've still seen it all the way through and I have a lot more complaints with the gameplay and story of this one. It may have something to do with the move from Disney Interactive to BVG, actually.

  • Bought this game in the same sale that gave me Singularity. Also never put it into an Xbox.

  • This is where I start to wonder if I ever actually completed a Wii game. About 30 stars in, I think?

  • Played about four or five worlds of it, will be a quick completion if I ever decide to finish it. That said, post-Super Meat Boy, 3D Mario platforming leaves a lot to be desired in the controls department.

  • I'm so confused as to where I've gotten in this game in the past. Now I know I'm near the beginning again, pre-Viola.

  • I SUCK at Fire Emblem. Like, REALLY suck at Fire Emblem. I really just suck at strategy games in general, but Fire Emblem in particular is my direct opponent. Though I never get far in Path of Radiance due to apathy.

  • Again, I SUCK AT FIRE EMBLEM. I'm at mission 14 or 15 in my most recent play through on standard mode.

  • I don't even think I have a save for this game anymore.

  • This is actually in my DS Lite right now, so I'll keep working on it. This game is a lot better than I last played it on an emulator, actually.

  • I encountered a serious bug that locked up the game and made me nearly throw a Wiimote with rage. However, I really like the dungeon design in this game, even if its characters are TERRIBLE.

  • I might never finish this game. It's really not as good as you remember it.

  • Oh, right, this game came out. I played about a half hour of it, enjoyed it, and then BioShock finally shipped.

  • I actually don't mention this game when people ask me about quality Wii titles because A) It's such a generic response and B) I'm only about two bosses in! This is a game best played in such small doses for me that I'll probably never finish it.

  • Played a level of the campaign in 2007 on a friend's copy, never played it since, but bought the game pretty recently. I'll play it sooner or later...and then I'll play Gears 2 in preparation for Gears 3, 'cause Gears 3 will be SICK!

  • I LOVE the original Paper Mario. This game doesn't quite do it for me for some reason. Maybe it's the slow pacing at the start, or maybe I just don't like the early areas as well as the ones in the original. Still, I'll probably play it eventually.

  • I burned through most of this game in a day. I've got about two chapters left. I don't consider it a priority, but I really like this game!

  • So I never really got into Sly Cooper when it came out. Consider this a "maybe I'll just get the HD remakes?"

  • Bought this in the same sale as GTAIV and Singularity. Played a couple of levels of the story mode, then played the songs I felt like playing in the single-play mode.

  • Got it in the same sale as the above, popped it in for the export, never put it in again. Actually really happy with the track selection here, though; it's literally every song I'd care to play by Green Day, plus 21st Century Breakdown!

  • I really, really like what I've played of this game. Currently in the principal's office just after it freezes over.

  • Moved a lot farther than I had been, and it's awesome! Gonna finish it soon.

  • Hard to remember if there even is a valid story mode in SCIII, but if there is, I'll probably play it one day. SCIV, too.

  • Actually, I know that there's a valid story mode in SCIV, so I'll probably play it 'cause its version of the Challenge Tower is pretty sweet, so its story mode can't be too bad.

  • That German in the title scares me. Never popped it into a PS2.

  • Probably the individual reason I'll never fully complete this list.

  • Lent it to a friend. Probably will get it back soon. Not sure if I'll continue or wait for the HD remaster with Ico.

  • Ooh, forgot about this game! Actually own a physical of it. It's a sweet game, but it's on a PSP...(I don't like the PSP.)

  • I got this game during the Steam sale. Never booted it up.

  • Played the two hour demo on Xbox, then bought it during the Steam sale. Again, never booted it up.

  • This game is just really, really weird. I've booted it up and played its tutorial, and...it's really WEIRD.

  • Bought during sale, never booted up.

  • I've seen a bunch of the content in this game, but only played three of its environments, and only one of them all the way through. This game is really cool, though...still also very flawed. Also, hate the combat on the PC! What are you people thinking?

  • Played about an hour of it to see how it ran, and it looks pretty good on my computer. Also, didn't encounter ANY bugs during that hour. Interested in playing more sometime.

  • Received this as a Steam gift, never booted it up.

  • Both episodes, that is.

  • It would take a lot of convincing to get me to finish this game, as its core is kind of interesting, but after two hours it's a DRAG.

  • This game might be too old to actually complete.

  • This game may suffer a similar problem, though less so as I played an hour of it and still kinda enjoyed it.

  • I don't remember purchasing the original Witcher, but I'll probably play it eventually.

  • Played about half of the campaign, and enjoyed what I played. Never cracked open the multiplayer.

  • Game has always been cool, but I get stuck quickly in the Egyptian campaign.

  • Never really started it thanks to Age of Kings.

  • Again, it'd take a lot of convincing to get me to play this game, but I could do it. Eventually.

  • A decent game for the very short time I played it.

  • Purchased alongside VVVVVV for $5, never booted it up.

  • See above.

  • Did this game ever ship? Whatever, tower defense, not high on my list.

  • I honestly don't get why people freak out about the soundtrack so much in this game. It's very pleasant electronica, but it's not like it's the LCD Soundsystem of game soundtracks. Still a fun game, though.

  • Again, never booted it up.

  • Just reached a really, really scary part. Looking forward to my next play session a LOT. May get a video capture program for it.

  • This game actually makes me angry. But I'm also not very far into it at all.

  • Bought it as part of the larger Bethesda pack, along with the Fallout games, the Elder Scrolls games, and Rogue Warrior, which I've already uninstalled. Also, never booted it up.

  • Played about 45 minutes of it, think I just like Amnesia better.

  • Might never finish this, as the controls seem really wonky. Cool idea, though.

  • The fact that I don't love this game means I probably just don't like point-and-click adventures, right?

  • This is barely a game, but there is clearly an ending in mind.

  • Didn't really understand there was a first one. This is another point-and-click-y thing, right?

  • This game is cool. I don't have any idea how far I am in it.

  • Right, there are two of you. (Even less motivation to play these.)

  • I only played one scenario. It was cool, though!

  • No idea if there's a story mode in here. I'd play it if there were.

  • I really should get back to this game eventually.

    (That's all for now! Be back when I get all my NES/SNES/N64/XBLA titles on here!)

  • I have all the characters unlocked, but I've yet to beat any of the Path of Champions paths.

  • Four or five hours in, but the update will mean I have to start over. Fuck this game!

  • Dis game iss neet.

  • Not gonna happen any time soon!

  • See W40000K DoWII.
