@themcnoisy It's strange how kids seem to have a high tolerance for that sort of thing. They've put up with all sorts of glitch-related nonsense. I've seen planes getting stuck in trees and all sorts

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

Thanks matey, I traded it in a long time ago, but will try and finish it if the opportunity comes along.

@Th3solution I’ve said on here before that Dark Souls was my game to be sacrificed for the upgrade to PS4. I hit a point where I wasn’t enjoying it any more and the PS4 was sat boxed in the corner waiting for me.

@Th3solution Couldn't have said it better myself. Same here with Virginia, that was a recommendation from Kidfried I thoroughly enjoyed. Congratulations on the nearly-three years, by the way!

And yeah, when I completed the core story in Red Dead, the last thing I wanted to do was start a lengthy DLC campaign. Hearing that it still felt samey from somebody who actually liked the game reinforces my assertion that I'll never fire it up, but I'll keep my fingers crossed for that remaster (and hope you enjoy Burial at Sea when you give it a shot soon).

Making It So Since 1987

I hate not finishing games, it seems to annoy my OCD but I have been learning to live with it and decide whether I want to return or not. So a few:

Resident Evil 7 - It took sometime for me to gel, got really into it, then stopped for a while for something else, returned and saved my game at a point where I had fluffed something up. Really need to start from scratch again. Well made game though.

Hollow Knight - Got 10 hours into this game, started to get the hang of it but started to stress me out. I found those early hours very difficult and I wasn't in the right headspace to continue. I like the genre, love the art and music but I am not great at platforming and the boss fights are hard for me. I do want to finish it though.

Dark Souls - Never played and I sucked at it. I started playing it, remembered how much I loved Bloodborne, hopped on Bloodborne then played that end to end again and haven't come back to Dark Souls. I want to but it takes me so long to get good at those games, it seems daunting.

Red Dead Redemption 2 - Got another 10 hours into that and just felt a bit too grindy and I got distracted by other game releases and moved to them. I recently deleted the 100gb from my HDD but I would like to play this properly until the end for the story.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@Rudy_Manchego Regarding RDR2, have you had the story spoiled for you yet? Hopefully you’ve managed to keep from spoilage this whole time. If so, I really think the story and the acting is very strong. The characters and your emotional tie to them evolves greatly over the 80 hr playthrough. It’s a long trek, to be sure, but very worthwhile if you liked the Cowboy style gameplay with the Rockstar polish. It’s a big commitment though. And the deletion of the game off your hard drive is an assurance to your devotion to not revisit it for a long time, lol. I keep rubbish on my hard drive for eons that I know I’ll never play again. 😂

@Th3solution Once I've decided a game is dead to me, it gets deleted. I see no point of keeping it on there, if you are keeping it in the slim chance you might play it again, it is not really dead is it?

I feel like quitting Days Gone as well. It's not good at all. It tries to be so many things, and it just falls flat—Jack of all trades master of none.

I don't enjoy suffering alone. However, I don't mind making others suffer alone.

@JohnnyShoulder Lol, I think I’m a digital hoarder. Which is ironic because I have sold back countless physical games after I completed them, many of which I now wish I had back. Basically my entire PS2 and PS3 collection.

I'm horrible about selling off my physical games if I've finished them and can get a decent price for them. It's great in the moment, but I usually end up wishing I had them back, if only to have a more fleshed out collection (I rarely actually replay games). In that sense, the inability to resell digital games can be sort of a boon for me, because it removes that temptation.

@Th3solution Luckily no spoilers so I am lucky!

I am normally a digital hoarder as well - I have a fair few games I have completed but can't face deleting because I like them so much, like Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and Hyper Light Drifter! However at over 100GB and TLOU2 I decided to sacrifice it. I also noticed I have nearly 80gb of video capture, mainly from Bloodborne from a playthrough video I was going to do (but never did).

@Arugula Yeah that is true. It is more of a visual thing, if it is not on the dashboard there is less temptation to play it again or chance you remember that you have it. Like I say I see no point of keeping games around if you have no intention of playing them again, you are only kidding yourself at the end of the day.

Oh merciful Batman... if I go through all my games, I will be here a while so I think I'll limit it to the PS4 games I can see on my shelf and pick a dew examples. Before I start, I don't really believe I will ever truly abandon a game, simply because seeing it on my shelf will annoy the hell out of me so I will eventually play again out of spite. But, I do have lots of Zombies if we go by the categories described at the beginning of this thread so I'll go through a few of them.

Zombies:

Dark Souls Remastered - I need to be in the right mood to play this, as this game can **** me off quite easily. I am not very far in the game, but when I last played a couple of months ago, I made some very small progress. I am completely lost to the story, I just remember needing to ring two bells. Safe to say I am not very far in.

Zanki Zero: Last Beginning - Brought this mostly on the back of the fact that it was made by the same developers of Danganronpa, but the story is not grabbing me so far. To be fair though, Danganronpa 2 initially lost me to begin with until I eventually played again one day and got to the first trial, where everything started to click again.

Judgment - I have gotten to about Chapter 6(?) and put about 30-40 hours in so far doing the side content, but honestly, again, it is not grabbing me. It is very irksome as I have enjoyed plaything through the Yakuza series immensely; I played Yakuzas 3-6 back to back when the remastered collection came out because I loved the story of Kazuma Kiryu, but for some reason Takayuki Yagami, lawyer-turned-detective just doesn't seem as interesting, not to mention, the combat doesn't seem to gel for me (although I do like his drunk heat action).

Metro 2033 - I am not very far in the game. All I remember is that I got a couple of chapters in and then the game soft-locked on me, and I then got busy playing some other game, although I can't remember what.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness - Don't remember why I stopped this game to be honest, but I haven't played in a couple of years.

Life Support:

Two-Point Hospital - Victims of the Yakuza Remastered Collection. Too many things coming out in February of this year. But I have completed at least four of the hospitals prior to playing Yakuza, and I really enjoyed the game, which I guess is no surprise given that I enjoyed Theme Hospital years ago. I will return to it soon.

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch - I've enjoyed what I played of it so far, but Persona 5 Royal came along.

Resurrected:

Nier: Automata - I've not a sodding clue what is going on in the story, but for some reason, despite not having played it in almost two years, I booted it up again a few days ago and I am enjoying the combat and music.

These were just a few choice examples, but I do have quite a few more in each category, but I feel in some of those cases, it is because I haven't really given the game a proper chance yet (Shenmue).

Signature, huh? Where do I sign?

@Ralizah When I was a kid, I traded in all of my PSone games to get Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Medal of Honour: Frontline for my PS2. About six months later, I started to get that hollow feeling in the pit of my stomach and knew I'd made a mistake. It took a lot of time, eBay research and pocket money to get them all back.

Have never traded in or sold a game since. Distributed some around my family, knowing I'll likely never want them back, but otherwise I've kept them all. Even the stinkers.

I tried to get into GTA 5 twice and stopped both times. Then for some reason I bought Red Dead 2 and also stopped after a couple of hours

Pretty much every not awesome game experience, so about 99%.
Easier to name the ones I finished.

I loved this game when I bought it. Thought it was simply amazing. Could not stop playing it for days at a time. Glad to hear that the replay is going well. Some parts of the game were pretty tough, but I did manage to finish it.

I need to replay it, it’s been awhile since I’ve played it.

An embarrassingly high number. It's fair to say with PS4 I got carried away. I think I brought over 300 games but have only finished around half.
