Games you own but have never played
« on: October 25, 2013, 08:12:24 pm »
I was looking at my Steam library and I realized I have quite a few of these, but is it a common thing? And how common?
Here's my list of games I've either never played or have started once for a few minutes then not touched since then:

Aquaria
ARMA 2/Operation Arrowhead *
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood *
Assassin's Creed Revelations *
Batman: Arkham City *
Carrier Command: Gaea Mission *
C & C: Red Alert 3 - Uprising
Crysis 2 *
Dead Space 3
Deus Ex: Invisible War
DogFighter
Droplitz
Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved
Lugaru HD
Medal of Honor: Hobo Beard Edition
Penumbra: Overture
Sam & Max 302 to 305
Samorost 2
Spiral Knights
The Sims 3*
Trine 2 *

* means I plan to play these eventually or when I finish the preceding game in the series.

21. Huh. What about you?


Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

I've got a huge list of games in Steam in the descriptive category 'Still Have To Play'. It's far too large to post here.
Safe to say, almost every gamer has a huge backlog by now, not in the least caused by all these cheap bundles. There's far more game releases than there is time to play them, so it makes sense that a backlog of interesting games builds up.
Best save them for retirement :P

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Yeah it's common. I tend to buy games on sale with the intention of playing them and it never happens. I also do the same with books.

Bioshock

Play Bioshock first when you get round to that list. The other two are skippable IMO.

Bioshock isn't all it was cracked up to be but its still a very serviceable game with a great immersive atmosphere and a relatively intelligent backstory.

I'm a terrible excuse for a gamer I'm so sorry

I can't tell you how many games I have to play still. Worse is that it has leeched into my physical game collection as well. I've got games like Xenoblade and Monster Hunter 3 that have just been sitting around. These are very long games... I have no idea when I'll finish them. Or start them.

MH3 is a commitment
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I enjoyed Saints Row the Third a lot more than I thought I would.

One Piece Online is a free MMORPG browser game based on manga. New tower defense ARPG gameplay more exciting than Pirate Warriors.
