Super Star Wars. I don't know why but I just sucked at that game. I didn't even get very far.

Games that it looks like I will NEVER finish:

God of War


Really? I enjoyed God of War a lot, even signing up for gamefly so I could get the second game and beat it in like a week. (3-4 hours of play after work every day)

I've got one word for you: Vita-Chambers.

I'm not conserving life, I'm conserving ammo.  Unless there's a vita-chamber later in the game for when you run out of ammo, it still ends up like I said.  Hopefully when I have some time soon I'll be able to finish it up, because it was a very enjoyable game, though I'm making it sound like I didn't enjoy it.

How did you even run out of ammo? You get tonnes once you are past the beginning section of Bioshock?

Battletoads for SNES, but fuck that game anyway.

didn't that game have a part in it that was almost completely impossible to beat?

The fucking hoverbike level.

I'd be cruising, have like 10 lives, all my continues, get to the hoverbikes, and IF I had the sequence memorized, and my reflexes were PERFECT, and I didn't get fucked by enemies, I MIGHT have like, 1 life and half health for the next level.

Fucker.
Oh man, BattleToads/Double Dragon must have been scores easier than the original Battletoads...

Games that it looks like I will NEVER finish:

God of War

Really really? I thought it was a pretty easy game in general. The only things that I got stuck on for any amount of time were certain battles involving a whole bunch of bad dudes and/or stuck in a confined space with bad dudes that seemed to keep coming forever. The puzzles were pretty obvious and the boss fights (ESPECIALLY the final boss fight) were almost embarrassingly easy.

Oh, I never finished Bioshock.  It's not that I didn't like it, it's just that I find survival horror games to be a lot of work.

Bioshock is not survival horror.

That's like saying Resident Evil 4 is survival horror.

They are atmospheric action games.

There is almost no need to conserve ammo and plenty of way to wipe out enemies without wasting any kind of resource.

I know right!  This should be one of the best games to pick up and play for a bit and I SHOULD have beat it a long time ago.  Why can't I just pick up this game and play???

WHY!?!?

Shit.  Screw this.  I am going to finish GoW.  Dammit.

Right after I finish Call of Cthulhu.

The first part there was need to conserve ammo (and mana), trigger the enemies slowly and always keep your back to a wall.  I say if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, then it's a duck.  Now, it might not have been a duck after the first bit, in which case I'll finish that up at some point when I have time.

Well that's your opinion.  I just don't see it.

Now System Shock 2.  Now THAT game could be considered a survival horror game depending on what abilities you take and the difficulty level.  (until later in the game when you find/purchase a ton of ammo)

Maybe it's just the way I played Bioshock.  I never had the "oh shit oh shit oh shit I need to find an ammo clip/health pack please before I run into something else" or "I better not use up my bullets right now because there might be something worse in the next room".

RE4 and 5 are survival horror like MGS4 was a stealth game.

Where this analogy falls apart is that RE4/ parts of RE5 were fun.

It probably doesn't help much that Act 2 has some of the more frustrating ways to die snuck in there as well, at least for neophytes. For example, if I remember correctly those vultures had a jacked up attack speed and could keep you stuck in the flinch animation pretty easily if they got off a good string of attacks. Real dangerous if you're trying to separate them from a named mob when it happens. And of course there's Duriel, who is renowned for his caster gibbing capabilities.

Hell, even if you weren't a caster, you were fucked on Duriel if you had no way to resist the slow effect.

Related, but I finally got to, and defeated, Baal about 3 months ago.

The trick, I've found, is using countless town portal scrolls. Have one hotkeyed. The second you enter his lair, cast it, then switch to whatever and wail away on him for a few second with all you've got, staying close to the portal. After sustaining a couple hits, duck into the portal and heal up. It takes ages but I managed it w/o dying for the first time not too long ago using this strategy. Plus, if you do die, you get resurrected with a portal already in the lair which is incredibly helpful considering what a pain in the ass it is to even get there.

As for the topic at hand, I have never beaten any of the Grand Theft Auto games, any of the Elder Scrolls games, or Neverwinter Nights. I have managed to beat Link's Awakening, which made me feel rather accomplished I must say.

I had to use a guide for the water temple; at one point it said "if you don't know what to do here, you should go bang your head against the wall and scream I AM AN IDIOT I AM AN IDIOT" and stop playing the game. I stopped playing the game.

Heh, yeah, that's basically the last resort maneuver for everything in Diablo 2. Still, many a new player has gone in there not knowing what to expect and ending up being ambushed by just how damn much he hurts. If in your ignorance you had a Sorceress with virtually no stam and a staff instead of a shield, he was completely capable of reaming you before the screen faded in on the zone in transition.

I just bought the first Oddworld games; Abe's oddysee Abe's Exoddus. It has save points, and the placement of some is absolutely killing me. After a really hard jumping/running puzzle, you still have to go through some medicore stuff before you get to save again. If you do brilliant at the hard stuff and then die before you get to save.... GAH!

Gotta finish it though, great games.

This is actually part of why I never bothered to beat Final Fantasy 8, even though a death actually wasn't involved. I was already kind of sick of the game and seriously contemplating doing something else. It didn't help that I was 16 and just gotten my license and could afford to buy my own games thanks to a part time job. FF8 was up against girls, Starcraft, Thief, Ocarina of Time, Baldur's Gate, and Fallout 2. Then one stormy night, I sat through a long ass cut scene and power went out for a split second, resetting the game. Never played the fucker again.

Yeah, people who like Final Fantasy 8 have some sort of mental defect because that game's terrible. The best thing about it was the card game, too bad they haven't transplanted that into a better game yet.

I remember finding an online multiplayer Triple Triad app and played it so much when I was 16 or 17. I would play it and get really good and start to think "hey, maybe FF8 is a pretty good game" and then I would go play FF8 for an hour, then just go back and play Triple Triad again, knowing that I was wrong.

Actually that reminds me, I've never beaten Portal because I always play it on a friend's computer (I don't have a PC) and I always get to the last level in one sitting and then just give up and not bother coming back to it afterwards. I've done this twice.

I don't think I've finished an fps in a long time. Bioshock was just too tedious to bother fighting my way through. Halflife 2 I just stopped playing one day and then never got around to starting to play again.

Oh and I've never fully finished Diablo 2, though I'm not sure that's a reasonable goal single player. I think act 2 hell difficulty is as far as I've managed. I could have gone further but it gets to a point where it's 80% agro control, 15% trying to keep alive and 5% killing things that it gets to be incredibly heavy going.

It's really hard, but it's fun. You have to look at it as an adventure game first and a shooter second. If you can run from enemies, do.

I could have gone further but it gets to a point where it's 80% agro control, 15% trying to keep alive and 5% killing things that it gets to be incredibly heavy going.

I have gotten like halfway through act 3 before quitting a coupple of times. I think I've only been in Hell once.


i remembered another one - I've played Might and Magic 6-8, but never finished any of them, mostly due to it taking so god damned long. They are great, great, great games, though. You want interesting storyline and an open world RPG that gives exiting and challenging gameplay and new game experiences all through the game? This is the shit.

I especially love how the levelling system works - it's so slow that when you actually get a new level and can get one rank up in a skill and then get to where you need to train it and train it, it feels like a great accomplishment. Loved it every time my mages could use new spells, even more than in Baldur's Gate. I don't know why, it's probably the different gameplay each of them brought - think of water walk and fly, two spells that radically alters how you play the game.

Now I want to play them again. The sad thing is that I know I'll just end up sitting in taverns, playing that card game, since it's fucking magnificent.

How is that even possible? I don't remember the battle that well, but Knights of the Round can one-shot any non-weapon enemy in the game. Did Sephiroth have one of those game moments where once he's reduced to X damage he changes forms but his health is restored?

Yeah, I've seen Sephiroth get one-hit KO'd by the knights.

Unless that was the final boss of XIII, and the super-summon there. I never remember.

Yeah, people who like Final Fantasy 8 have some sort of mental defect because that game's terrible. The best thing about it was the card game, too bad they haven't transplanted that into a better game yet.

I have to say I liked the weapon upgrading system and the magic system. Everything else is terrible though.

Maybe I should just concentrate on finishing Call of Cthulhu.

is that any good? I'm a huge Lovecraft fan but that game looked sort of mediocre and i never got around to checking it out.

I am a ways into the game and I REALLY liked the first bits.  There is a great scene before you get any weapons and there is a really cool segment.  Lets just say there is lots of running involved.

There is a truck ride segment that was truly HARD and unfun in every way.

When I got further into the game combat is pretty bad but unlike other reviews I have read it wasn't too horrible.

Like I would read in reviews how one section is completely impossible unless you did THIS and THIS but I would just be able to play it by ear and get stuff done.  I never felt the need to run away/ sneak past every single enemy.

(Please note I only read the walkthrough about a section AFTER I finished that section.  This is because I was so worried I missed a weapon or something.  You play so long without any weapons I figured I might have missed something.  My phobia about missing stuff stems from my first playthrough of Silent Hill 2 where I went through the ENTIRE GAME without finding the shotgun.  Somehow I missed it.  Since then I have always been paranoid about missing stuff in games.  which actually made Call of C more scary for me)

See, I never really had any problem with any combat in Call of Cthulhu, it felt like it was pretty polished for a game trying to make sure you were just a normal everyday scrub, and lik you I couldn't find any part of the game that I really that was overly hard or terible. Even the truck bit I got first time no problem.

It's just so good at making you feel as helpless as possible whlile not making it too hard that you don't want to continue trying to help your character get out alive despite the futility of the situation. Basically, it's just a fantastic Cathulhu game.

Also FF8 had not a single thing that was worth a shit outside of that fantastic card game. God I loved that card game so much.

I so want to play FF8 after reading this thread. Also Call of Cthulu was on my radar for playing (just got Arkham Asylum to see if I could handle its specs) but CoC is my next choice if I decide to game hard before I can afford Torchlight. Though I am doing a casual playthrough of Bioshock, but I have this major difficulty of doing any single thing on my computer that doesnt involve hefty amounts of FBing in the middle of.

Don't do it man.  It's not even worth playing "ironically".

I... I have a confession to make. I still have not beaten Final Fantasy 7. My game is saved right before that last battle, but I can't seem to beat Sephiroth. I even went through all the trouble of getting the "Knights of the Round" materia. Still no dice.

Me too! o/
