This list can go ON AND ON...

Just for S's and G's games I have completed in the last year or so

Metro 2033
The Last of Us
Just Cause II
Stalker CoP Mysery 2.0 Mod
Dragon Age Origins (90% certainty)
Fallout 3 (90% certainty)
Bioshock 1 and 2

There is obviously something wrong with me.... If you can find a pattern here I'd give you $5, that way I could save myself some money!

The pattern is that the majority of games that you haven't beaten have a big RPG system to them, such as leveling up and selecting your skills. It looks like you aren't a big RPG fan in any format.

EDIT: Another thing to note is basically all of those are open world games.

Too bad it looked like crap compared to other games released in 1998. But I suppose that's what happens when you use the Quake 1 engine

Looks better than Metal Gear Solid, not sure if Turok 2 beats it though. It's hard to compare its looks to Baldur's Gate, Fallout 2, and pre-rendered Resident Evil 2. I'd never recommend playing Half Life anyway, due to how excellent the unofficial remake is.

But on that note, I too never finished Half Life. I never played it with the intention to finish it, I only tested downsampling in it. I bought it just for mods.

I can count on my fingers how many single player games that have actually held my attention all the way through. I'm just a multiplayer kind of dude.

Finished: Warcraft 3: Frozen Throne, Armored Core: Nexus, Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, Parappa The Rapper, Portal 1, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, maybe a couple others on old consoles

Didn't finish: Half-Life 2

People tell me that it's a horror technique, but it doesn't make it any less infuriating. That and the fact that the main characters in these things (horror games) are dupes and never take the chance to escape when they get the chance. The games that manage to satisfy both of these requirements for me are true horror masterpieces (Dead Space: you can't exactly jump off a spaceship and expect to get anywhere, and you can defend yourself when the need arises).

I'm going to have to add HL2 to my list as well, because after a fair while of it sitting on my pc unplayed, I just gave up. Every time I went to play that game I would be discouraged by one thing or another (more often than not motion sickness).

I never finished HL2. I struggle to think why people think it's classic, maybe I played it too late? Tried it about 3 years ago and it felt like just another dated linear FPS. I own all the Episodes too, maybe some rainy day I force myself to play through them.

To be honest I have long list of games that I started and never finished. For example I played Fallout 3 for 30 hours and stopped suddenly. Have not touched it since, I may have saves backed up somewhere though. I lose interest very fast nowadays, only games that I play for long term are multiplayers like BF3.
