List the games you'd like to finish this year and update everyone on your progress.

Here are some of the games I'd like to finish this year.

Wii:

Endless Ocean
No More Heroes
Super Mario Galaxy (...maybe)

Xbox 360:

007 Quantum of Solace
Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts
Bioshock
Bully Scholarship Edition
Far Cry 2
Gears of War
Prince of Persia
Project Gotham Racing 4
Pure
Saints Row 2
Viva Pinata

PS3:

Dead Space
Little Big Planet
Metal Gear Solid 4
Uncharted: Drakes Fortune

N64:

Banjo Tooie

Gamecube:

Doshin The Giant

There's many more that I'd like to finish but, realistically, I'll struggle to finish all the games I've listed above... and there will no doubt be plenty of great new games coming out that will join the list. Dammit, I need so much more time. :-8 ^_^

Here's the games I've already finished in 2009:

Call of Duty: World at War (finished on easy difficulty, I'll go back and play through on the hardest difficulty)
Kameo Elements of Power

You never completed Endless Ocean? Me neither, but I'm not sure why. Maybe I'll get on that in 2009.

Anyways, I don't think I can really plan this out much as I'm not sure what I'll be in the mood for. I still have quite a few N64 games I've never finished/started, but I don't know if I'll muster up the interest. The trouble is going to be finding the motivation; seems like when it's game time I always go with Mario Kart Wii. Discovering the joys of YouTube, in both watching and uploading videos, doesn't help any either.

Wii
Endless Ocean: See above
Metroid Prime 3: played this only once so far. Just need to find some time to get into it.
Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga: Haven't started it yet.
Thrilleville Off The Rails: Haven't even broken the shrink wrap as I still can't decide if I should sell it or not.
Mario Strikers Charged: Still have to beat that last cup. The A.I. is so cheap to the point of madness. I don't really like this game that much either. I'll probably pull up a FAQ and see what I can learn.

DS
Super Mario 64 DS: Making some good progress in this by playing in bed every night. Almost got 100 stars.
New Super Mario Brothers: Played it just once so far. Kind of reminds me of Super Mario World, which is both a good and bad thing. Good because SMW has such refined gameplay, but bad because it doesn't feel very creative or inventive.

N64
Donkey Kong 64: I liked it but the abundance of collectables lead to a lack of motivation.
Rocket Robot on Wheels: Not sure why I stopped this one, I don't remember anything bad about it.
Starshot Space Circus Fever: The poor control got on my nerves, but this game has some interesting ideas.
Space Station Silicon Valley: I believe I got to a mission I found annoying difficult.
Earthworm Jim 3D: I don't recall anything offensive about this game either so I don't know why I didn't stick with it.
Rayman 2: Heard nothing but good things about it so I should really try it out.

And of course who knows what I'll buy and how that will affect things.

Ironman
Prince of Persia

Maybe not everyone hath as much free time as thee, nor canst they spend the entirety of their precious free time playing -- much less completing -- games.

Gotta add two more titles to my list of games to complete:
Battalion Wars II
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Paper Mario will probably be the first one I complete this year, followed by Metroid Prime 3.
Mario Kart Wii hasn't been helping matters though. >_<

By the way, since I never mentioned it: Before 2008 ended, I completed Super Mario Galaxy 100% which is what I had aimed for. :D

I just beat de Blob. Good game, although very annoying because of: a) the flick-the-Wiimote-to-jump controls and b) the fact that you can only save after completing a level, which can take more than an hour. That's the reason why I will probably never play this game again :). It was good while it lasted, though.

Next up is Psychonauts. For those 'in the know', I just passed the point of no return in that game so I guess I must be pretty close to beating it.

After that, who knows... According to my Backloggery, I have 68 unfinished games. I'll try to finish as many of those as possible, except the JRPGs (Tales of Symphonia, Baten Kaitos, Final Fantasy X) which I will leave for the summer break and DS/GBA games, which I will leave for holidays.

First Priority: Earthbound, I don't see how I've had the game for so long, yet didn't complete it.(or Start it, for that matter.)

I'd also like to finish Super Metriod, I almost last year, then my save file randomly got deleted, and I lost all motivation to play it.

There are probably more, but that's enough for now.

Do you mean other people have time to eat and go to the toilet? I haven't done that in weeks because I've been too busy spending every single second playing games. Every. Single. Second. :P

Wait a minute... if I'm spending all my time playing games how can I have time to:
  • work to pay for my games and (less importantly) pay my rent
  • socialize with my friends and my (probably imaginary) lady
  • post here

In future I will dedicate more time to gaming and less to those other non-essential tasks. ^_^

I think you missed a key word in my post: free. Free time. As in, time not spent on obligatory tasks, such as work.

You seem a bit defensive lately; perhaps I should try to tone down on my cynicism/sarcasm/satire. :mellow:

Oh hells yeah, Earthbound is always priority number one! If you aren't going to give it the attention it requires, you don't deserve to have it and should sell it to somebody who would appreciate it.

100% completion:
PixelJunk Eden
LittleBigPlanet (pending a non-sucky level, or any level, being published)
Dark Sector
Deadly Creatures
MadWorld
Siren: Blood Curse
*deep breath*
BioShock & Dead Rising (yes, on Xbox 360)
*another deep breath, because this is getting un-realistic*
Burnout Paradise

bare-minimum "beat" the game, because 100% may take at least 2 years of solid practice:
WipeOut HD
Rock Band 2
Guitar Hero World Tour
Now Playing: Clash Royale (mobile), The Swapper, Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, Project CARS, Uncharted 4 Survival Mode ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

Just finished Psychonauts. Great game, especially when it comes to the story and the humour, as well as the level design. The *spoiler* Conspiracy, *spoiler*opolis and *spoiler* World are some of my favourite levels in any game, ever. Those who played the game will know which levels I mean :)

Next up: probably Donkey Konga or Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, together with The Orange Box.

Free time is irrelevant in gaming. You make time for video games. ;)

Most of my gaming is done at 1:00 AM, about 6 hours before I have to go to work or uni.

Man, I haven't even played anything in a couple of weeks. And the last games I've played were sports games so that doesn't really count. But I will try to finish my Silent Hill Origins game this year. I'd also like to start on and finish some PS1 rpg's like Final Fantasy 7, 8 and 9, Xenogears, Grandia, Star Ocean: The Second Story and perhaps a few other PS1 gems. I guess we'll see.

Yeah, I'd say that counts.

Maybe even the equivalent of finishing TWO games!!

:omg: :omg: :omg:



I can't believe there are people out there (*ahem*spikie) who can actually play through this song. I've only gotten one or two songs deep into the last tier of Expert in GHIII, and my hand physically can't move in the necessary ways, or move that fast. Then there's TtFaF... I die pretty consistently about... 5 seconds in. >_<
