I got a good chuckle from this as I am in the same boat!

GameSpy: Dear Videogame Industry, Please Stop Making Games - Page 1

ya, I never beat stronghold crusader either, I got about 10 missions in and then just went to free play and would make a few hundred macemen and go beat down entire castles with them.

I have all current gen systems and enjoy most genres, but so little time to play everything I want to. I'm so behind. I still haven't finished Half-Life 2 and I've had it since PC launch. Normally when a game I'm super interested in comes out I'll only play that for a month or so and everything else gets put on the back burner. I guess it's better then having nothing to play.

And Thund3rball, my tastes might be a bit different from yours but God of War II and Mario Galaxy are pretty close to my favorite games ever. I'd definitely try and make some time for them. Uncharted 2 was pretty awesome too.

Oh I have nothing against any of these games I haven't finished (except maybe DoW2). I am some number of hours into Mario Galaxy but you know how it is... something else came along and I dropped the ball. Same with GoW2... well sort of. I actually started this game like 3-4 times and something came up etc.. etc... I actually re-bought it for PS3 now and vow not to buy GoW3 until I finish GoW2! As for Uncharted 2... I don't want to play that until I finish a good handful of other PS3 games as i don't want anything I have to disappoint me after playing it, lol.

I don't buy games that I don't intend to finish. The only game I haven't finished so far is sacred, and that's because it blows so hard I didn't want to play it anymore. In fact, I only ever buy games that I think I'll beat to death by playing over and over and over. I've finished most of my games several times over.

Bored? You mean bored of games or find myself with nothing to do several times/week. Because the answer to both questions is no, lol.

Ya that used to be me too. At least I only buy a few full price games/year. The rest are discounted and some are down right ridiculously cheap thanks to services like Steam. :)

Bored of games. Personally, I think I lost touch with my gaming part.
