Un-finished games

I didn't think I was so bad at not finishing games. But lately, the list has been piling up.
I think this all started with Final Fantasy 8, which was the hardest (and longest) time I have spent on a final battle and I have been scarred from then on. I get to the end of a game, and I choke.

So I thought of making a list of the games I haven't finished that I intend on finishing and maybe this will jolt me to get some of them done. And I don't count the Xbox games I haven't finished for reasong or ring-of-death. Not my fault!

And let's not forget please that I have finished more games then are on this list. I do finish games. :P

Here's my list of shame:

- The Silver Lining : Ep. 2 (PC) : The fan-made King's Quest sequel. Just got distracted from it.

Beyond Good and Evil (PS2) : A really great game. I must really finish it before the sequel comes out. If it does.
Keepsake (PC) : A more recent adventure game that I picked up in a bargain bin. It's all right except that walking anywhere takes  FOREVER!
Bioshock 2 (PS3) : Good game, but gets very repetitive towards the end. I'm preparing to get to the game's boss, but I gotta get some tedious battling stuff before I get to her and I don't wanna.
Call of Juarez (PS3) : Okay first person shooter, but one of the characters has a shooting mechanic that my brain forgot from the one-shot tutorial and that just makes playing him frustrating. I'll have to restart the game.
Saboteur (PS3): It's been so long since I touched it that I'll have to restart from zero. I forget what I was doing.
Toy Story 3 (PS3) : Another case of being at the last boss and getting killed all the time. So I moved on.
 3D Dot Game Heroes (PS3) : Right at the last boss' battle. Get killed all the time. Anger.
Deathspank (PS3) : Part 1. I just got distracted by other shiny things. I'm about half-way through.
Scott Pilgrim VS the World (PS3) : Single player is much too hard. I got to the second level and got clobbered. I gotta play with other people.
Secret of Monkey Island 4 : Escape from Monkey Island (PC) : When Lucasarts turned their point-and-click adventure games to keyboard 3D controls, that totally turned me off to it.
Grim Fandango (PC) : Same control reasons as above. I keep coming back to that game from time to time. But being an old PC game, there's always crashes that make me stop. I'd really like to see the story through. I was quite a ways into it.
Myst V : End of Ages (PC) : I have played and finished all the other Myst games, so for completion's sake, I should really get back to that one.
Mario &amp: Luigi : Bowser's Inside Story (DS) : I'm at the last boss and I get CLOBBERED easily everytime. There must be something I'm doing wrong or I need to get higher levels. But grinding in that game is TEDIOUS.
The Legend of Zelda : Spirit Tracks (DS) : I'm at the last dungeon and completely STUMPED as to what I should be doing. I'm in a dead-end and I've tried everything. I could just use a walkthrough, but that would be admitting defeat.
Flow (PS3) : An okay game. I like the concept, but the motion controls annoy me. They don't seem really responsive.
Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness (PS3) : I get clobbered at this game. I'm not good at real-time RPG combat. I do enjoy the style of the game.

Afrika (PS3): Nice and relaxing game of safari pictures. I got to one point where I had to take a picture of a certain animal which I totally forgot WHERE it was. I had encountered it before, but didn't remember. So I put it aside. I intend on going back to it, for sure.

Doctor Who : the Adventure Games (PC) : I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, but I wasn't excpecting much from these low-budget games. I'm still playing the first one, which mostly involves fetch quests and dodging a lot of Dalek search beams. More of a stealth game then and adventure game so far. Still, okay fin.

So there it is. I probably forgot a few, but that's quite hefty.

Too bad I have Scott Pilgrim for the Xbox 360 instead of the PS3, or I'd help you with that one. I actually wish I had it on the PS3, as I really dislike the D-pad on the 360 controller and the game doesn't control as well as I'd like with the analog stick.
