    that shit used to happen to me alot. but i made a rule. I have to beat a game single player before even trying its multiplayer.. AND i cant buy a new game untill i've played its multiplayer for atleast a couple of weeks.. assuming i like the multiplay.

    Those rules have kept me on the right path.

    There's no reason to finish Worms 2 or Peggle, play them when you're bored.

    I feel your pain all too well. I have major backlog problems :hs: And BlazBlue isn't helping, sucking all my video-game time away.

    I never beat Mass Effect or Assasin's Creed so as soon as I get a new video card & monitor I'll start those. Then I gotta beat Castlevania: SOTN, Bionic Commando Rearmed, & FF12.... all games I own that I never beat. After that, there is a list 3 times as long of games already out I want to beat, and another list of games not out yet but that I'll want...I need more hours in each day :hs:

    I have a really hard time starting a new game until I've finished the one I'm working on.

    I'm too OCD about it to have more than one MAYBE two games going at one time

    I have a huge backlog :hs: I will probably never finish some of them, just because I got distracted by other shit and have some kind of mental block against going back to finish them. :o

    Man if you think the demo levels are good you will really enjoy the game. I think they toned down the difficulty of the first 3 levels so they wouldn't scare away people downloading the demo.

    The full game is so much more awesome. Some of the levels in 3rd world are :bowdown: :eek3: :bowdown:

    I dont think i've ever completed a game 100%. Usually by the time I get close, the sequel to the game comes out, like Forza 2. 3 is out soon so I havent bothered playing it.

    Other games I just play online so will never complete them. I also rent a lot of games, then send them back after a week or so because most of them are terrible games

    I'm pretty close to doing everything in Fallout 3 but then there's the DLC aswell which I haven't actually bought yet, but will do.

    do want to complete COD4 on Veteran tho. I'm on 'one shot one kill' right now and will complete it over the next few months before MW2.

    I have over 20 games on my back log.

    I am no longer buying new games. I also am not concerned with just playing one game to completion. I am just bouncing around from game to game as I feel like.

    When ever I get the need to buy a new game I sit down and play over 10 different games. I usually stick with one and forget about getting a new game.

    If I really thought about it.... I own well over 1000 video games on over 12 systems. At this point I really have no reason to ever buy a new game again.

    I have the opposite problem. Too poor to buy any new games, beaten all my current games. Luckily my roommate has a couple Wii games he just brought out, started Okami this morning.

    im doing pretty good with my "backlog" because there is hardly anything on that list. like i said in another thread, im pretty goal oriented so i try to beat a game before moving onto the next. and i havent seen anything come out on xbox in the last month or more that sparks my interest so ive had no new games to try and beat
