File this under "first world problems" but I have a ton of video games. Oh wait, Cheerful Ghost to the rescue, how many games do I have? According to my handy dandy games list... http://cheerfulghost.com/jdodson/games I have 242 games. That's quite a lot of games. Now some of those are on my old NES and I don't really pull those out too often. But many of those are PC or PS3 games and lately I have noticed that if I stopped buying games I wouldn't be done with what I have for months. I have enough content to possibly keep me busy well into the next year.

Wondering that with Steam and as many Free to Play titles that exist if we will all will be perpetually swimming in more games than we can reasonably chew through?

Just a few games I have yet to complete:


  • Skyrim

  • Fallout: New Vegas

  • Borderlands: Have yet to finish all the DLC

  • Borderlands 2 [Playing this now]

  • Age of Empires Online

  • Left 4 Dead / 2

  • Rage

  • Diablo 3: Highest level is 51, haven't yet made it to Nightmare.

Lemme see what games I have yet to finish...

Disgaea 2 ('bout half wayish)
Disgaea 3 (I started a game, but stopped because I hadn't finished the 2nd one.)
Final Fantasy 12 (lost my save somewhere along the way, gotta start over)
Final Fantasy 10, but it sucks, so I don't care. :P Same for FF 13.
Mass Effect
Costume Quest
Torchlight
Fallout 3 (still playing off and on)
Borderlands (need to finish DLC)
Borderlands 2 I'm currently playing
Lone Survivor (awesome but scary! I think I'll play this around Halloween time :D)
Portal 2 (co-op)
Breath of Death VII
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Games I have but haven't even started yet:
All the Half-life games (I KNOW! I'll get around to them eventually)
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Time Gentlemen, Please!
Cthulhu Saves the World
Hunted: The Demon's Forge

I'm sure there's more I'm missing, but those are the ones I can remember off the top of my head. Yeah, I have SO many games to get caught up on. It's almost as bad as how many books I have sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read. There's just not enough hours in the day to do everything I need to and everything I want to!

There are a few games that I haven't completed recently, but most the time I finish games that I enjoy to play. I guess I only finish games that I enjoy the story of such as:

Fallout 3: beat it 3 to 4 times
Fallout New Vegas: 3 to 4 as well
Oblivion: beat this once but logged about 400-500 hours in it
Skyrim: Only beat this once
Mass effect 1: 2 play-throughs
Mass effect 2: 3 play-throughs
Mass effect 3: 1 play-through but I'm going to star another soon with all the new dlc

So I guess my conclusion is that I will play entirely through a game that I really enjoy(multiple times) such as mass effect, which its story is by far my #1.

There are also games which I haven't beat yet, but that is due to something I enjoy more coming along and pushing it aside. Some of these games are:

Dead Island
Magicka
Titan quest

These are games I don't enjoy as much as others and therefore usually I stop playing them and instead play a more enjoyable game to me.

I guess that about sums it up.

Whiteboy: When did you get GTA? Is it the Ps3 version? Haven't played GTA since 2 on Windows back in the day.

BR: Did you play Fallout 3 differently with the multiple play throughs? I could see myself sitting down and playing that again. I beat it originally on the PS3, I could do it again on the PC.

BR   Supporter wrote on 09/25/2012 at 02:35am

Yeah, I did play as an evil and good character. Although I have played with similar characters through the story. There wasn't many different ways you could go in fallout 3. Fallout New Vegas on the other hand had tons of different endings depending on which faction you chose to follow.

Did you blow up Megaton? I still kind of want to try that :)

BR   Supporter wrote on 09/25/2012 at 04:42pm

Did it on two characters and not on the other two.

@jdodson: It's the PS2 version, and I've had it for a long time. I sunk a ton of hours into it but the game is HUGE and after while I just started playing other stuff and never came back to it.

I still have just one character on Fallout 3, and I'm a "good" guy for the most part. :) If I ever do get around to playing a second time I'll probably go the evil route. I played through the first Knights of the Old Republic game several times and did both good and evil characters. Playing evil characters is fun at first, but after awhile I start to feel bad lol.

I agree. Doing the bad thing leaves me with a strange feeling. I imagine the second play through it would be better considering I had chosen the right path I know what the end run of that is.
