The Best Games Nobody's Ever Actually Beaten
« on: 02 Jan 2007, 00:39 »

I don't think any of the people I know ever managed to finish The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past. Everybody loved it but I can't recall talking to a single person who saw the ending. I don't even know if it has an ending.

Are there any games like this you guys know about? Should we all get 'em and try to beat 'em?

I never finished Wario Land 2 all the way through. Damn that was a fun game though.

It's too bad they're not making any more of those.

Games have endings?

When I was younger I was pretty bad at finishing like, any game ever.

I think the only 2 playstation games I've completed are MGS and Driver.

I played through Link To The Past, the GBA version, but never beat it. I got to the second to last dungeon and just gave up. I couldn't figure out what to do or what I was doing wrong.

I have only ever beaten about 40% of the games I own, due to parts in games that I found either frustratingly difficult or amazingly boring. A lot of RPGs have a bad habit of giving you too much too soon (insofar as skill systems, vehicles, characters, etc) so I get bored around the 30~40 hour mark and never beat them.

I've actually beaten Chrono Trigger enough to see most of the endings. I was pretty proud of that. A lot of other RPGs I haven't had the patience for.

I never could finish the Gameboy version of Super Mario Land. The (next-to?)-final stage with the airplane tore me apart every time.

Never did finish Oblivion, either, mostly because my odds of completing a Gate without it glitching (and forcing me to restart the entire game) were about 1 in 3.

i've never completed 100% of any GTA, or ever even fully beaten the main story arc of GTA 3 or San Andreas. the latter two aren't so hard to achieve i'm sure, i just didn't have the motivation, but only masochists go for 100% in those games.

I am pretty sad to admit I actually spent a decent chunk of a year doing this, so I could see every ending.

Also I have never finished any of the GTA series of games. I have always gotten really close untill I get bored and just give up.

Any RPG I've played except Diablo II and KOTOR/KOTOR II. And I've played a helluva lot of them.

Do Battlefield 2 and The Sims (2) count? They don't actually HAVE endings... :roll:

Baldur's Gate 2: Throne of Bhaal

Love the game, love the story, and easily the most obverall well done D&D based video game ever made, and I can't make myself beat the expansion. This might have a little bit to do with my character creation issues. I'll make one, about 25 hours into the game I suddenly wonder what i could do with this build.. then is tart over and never go back and play the other. Then i do it again, over and over and over.

Metroid 2 for the Game Boy

Metroid 2 got me stuck for 6 years.

Then I picked it up and beat it in 4 hours.

True story! Same with Castlevania 4.

Both a couple of my favorite games now, though.

Most of the games I consider to be unbeatable were for the 8-bit Nintendo system.  Battletoads, Zelda II, and that awful Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles platformer game.  I have a friend who wears glasses that he says were necessitated by the eye strain from the jetbike level of Battletoads.  Meh, I'm probably dating myself by just talking about this stuff.

I really liked Zelda: LTTP, though I'll admit I got good and stuck a few times on my first playthrough.

Christ, that's like every Black Isle PC RPG I've ever played!! I honestly think sometimes PC RPGs give you too many options in character creation. I probably spent more time in character creation for Icewind Dale 1 and Morrowind than I did playing the game(s).

Yeah, the only big PC RPG's I've ever had the will poweer to actually beat have all been Black Isle games though. Fallout 1&2, Arcanum (Troika counts damnit!), Vampire The Masquerades: Bloodlines (I swear it.), and Planescape Torment. Took me a good 6 months in each game before I ever actually managed to make myself beat the games though.

So.. many.. character possibilities.. *cry*

what's the one on the xbox?  my friend keeps making it freeze...he's got 2 million gold from just pickpocketing, i don't know if that's a lot or not.  he was attacked by four guards at once one time, so he killed all of them and chased the other ones down.  one managed to lock itself in a room or something, but my friend actually unlocked it fast enough to freeze the game.

There are a lot of games I've loved but not completed.  When I was younger I would finish every game I played, but I don't have a lot of patience these days and there are so many good games to play.

Games I enjoyed but never completed:
- Quake 2
- Ikaruga
- Zelda: Wind Waker
- Farcry - although I loved it. It just got silly toward the end
- Doom 3
- Morrowind - played it for about 100 hours, had a blast, then walked away from it without finishing the main quest
- Oblivion - see Morrowind, but only about 60 hours this time
- Dawn of War: Winter Assault & the new one - had a lot of fun playing them, but lost interest when newer, shinier games came out :)

also, I'll predict right now that I will never finish Neverwinter Nights 2.  It is a lot of fun to play, but the storyline sucks, quite frankly.  I've put it down for now, and am pretty sure that I'll pick it back up when I've got better hardware & they have some decent user-created mods for it.

I actually bought that game because it's backwards compatible for my 360 even though I never had an original X-Box. But since I haven't managed to hook up the fucking router yet (distracted by other games), I haven't downloaded the newest firmware so it doesn't play yet.

Ninja Gaiden deserves a sequel. A sequel with an Easy mode. No other game has made you fight a boss 20 times in a row. You do not win, after the 20th attempt, because the previous battles have made you a better ninja, no. You win after the 20th attempt because you lucked the fuck out.

I'm sure they're going to make another Ninja Gaiden after Sigma comes out.

Or maybe they'll just make Dead or Alive Xtreme 3. But if they do, I might have to cut a few dudes.

Never finished FEAR.  Was having computer problems (due to a faulty SATA cable of all things), and kept having to reload my OS (and thus the game).  Got tired of seeing the beginning of that game, so put it in the bin.  At least it was half-decent, unlike Doom 3.  I haven't even opened the box.  (I pre-ordered it, snagged a copy from a torrent site before I picked it up, played it, realized it was shite, trudged to EB, picked up my already paid-for copy, cried all the way home.)

Oh dude, you're not missing much.  The worst parts of the game come up in about the last 5-10mins.  You're basically railroaded by the story into doing something that I personally found stupid.  I tried other methods, but it's like you're on tracks.  I was literally forced to kill someone I didn't want to kill at one point.  ie: they stop the game in one of those time-freeze moments and you can't go on until they are dead.  Then the way they describe the end "boss" I didn't want to fucking kill them either.

I never beat Zelda 2: Link's Adventure for the NES. I can specifically remember fighting the mirror-Link and then the bigass shadow guy, but I never beat it. When I've played it via emulator, it would always be buggy, never capture my saves, etc. I gave up.

I also never beat Oblivion. I put maybe 10 hours into it and got really bored with it. For supposedly the best game to come out in 2006 for the PC, (or was it 05?), it didn't interest me in the least.

I haven't beaten Mario Kart DS or Space Invaders DS yet, either. MK because I don't play it enough, and Space Invaders because I can't beat three levels - they're freaking impossible.

troika certainly counts is so so damn fantastic. i too managed to beat arcanum (a few times) and vampire bloodlines. although i don't often fully beat those sorts of games (i still haven't beaten neverwinter nights) those particular games really drew me in. although for anyone who didn't complete them, it's very understandable.

on this one level where you protect the dude fixing your tank, then you are told you have to take the tank to a rendezvous point... but really you just get ass-raped by MG nests and enemy tanks.

Sadly, I never beat...

- Super Mario Bros. for the NES (I'm serious. It's one of my unfinished things I have to do when I finally break down, buy the Wii and download it. Still my damn favorite game of all time)
- Command and Conquer for the PC, NOD disc (GDI was easier, for some reason)
- Command and Conquer: Red Alert, Allied disc (one of my friends borrowed it so we could IP game it, never gave it back before he moved across the country)
- Either GTA or GTA2 (discs were destroyed by my son when he was teething; my ex got a real chewing out for that)
- Final Fantasy VII (same ex broke my PlayStation about halfway through the game, didn't feel like buying another one)

I've never actually finished Deus Ex. I got to the final Area 51 sort of base thing, and then I lost all my saves when a virus totalled my computer. I reinstalled it recently thinking it might be a good time to have another crack. I was dead in five minutes. Haven't got the moves any more. Though, to be fair, I do have a horrible suspicion I may have cheated on the original, possible on that fucking sneaking level on the docks with all the robots. I've always fucking hated sneaking games. I bought Metal Gear Solid for the PS1, and I got to like the second fucking screen.

I know it's considered "cool" to say you like Zelda 2, but I thought that game was crap back then and still do. The fact that dying means you have to start all the way back at Zelda's tomb-or-whatever also meant that I never played this game for more than three hours before giving up in frustration. Also, the controls suck and make some of the simple enemies ridiculously hard to fight.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone for PC.
You have to knock down a bunch of pillars to land on Voldemort, but also keep enough to hide behind so he can't kill you. I have never beaten it.

I suck at computer and console games. Truly horrid, I am. But the only ones that drag me back in spite of the fact that I can't beat them are Nethack and Ivan.

Sigma is pretty easy, dont get hit, he jumps back and forth, you mirror him, his pattern is repeated with no variation.

But I have to agree, the jet bike level of Battletoads on the SNES is hell, it comes way to early into the game too, so after losing a billion lives on it there is just way too much game to play after it.

I beat that one a few years back.  Hard as balls, but good times.

are you talking about Battletoads/Double Dragons? the one with both? cause I remember getting no farther than the boss of the third of five levels, and we must have played it at least 75 times.  it just couldn't be done.

- Either GTA or GTA2 (discs were destroyed by my son when he was teething; my ex got a real chewing out for that)

You can download them for FREE! Before the mods ban me for supporting warez, I mean Rockstar released it for PC for free (as GTA/GTA2 for pc is incompatible with XP)
