    Games you bought, but never played.

    I have just been going through my ps3 games and realised I have a bad habbit - I buy games, put them with my collection then never play them.

    Looking this morning I have several games unopened:
    Bioshock 2
    Homefront
    Need for Speed Most Wanted
    Bayonetta
    Infamous 2
    Resistance 3
    Ninja Gaiden Sigma
    Prototype 2

    and a few more....

    Does anyone else do this? also seeing asI have so many unopened games where should I start? I like the look of Bioshock Infinate so maybe Bioshock 2?

    That's the cruel irony of growing older as a gamer. When you were a kid you had few games, and lots of time. Now when you're older and have lots more money, you can afford a lot more games but have so little time to play them all.

    My backlog for the PS3 is mostly composed of RPGs that require a lot of time to thoroughly enjoy, like the Altelier series and Ni no Kuni. And Tales of Xillia comes out tomorrow, ouch.

    Actually ni no kuni is another. I played for a few hours, now it's sitting in a drawer somewhere.

    I've also never bought and never played Ninja Gaiden. I wasn't really too much of a fan of the original titles anyway, to be honest, but I do like ninjas. I played around with it for a while but eventually I got distracted with other better games. I've also almost never played Little Big Planet past more than 20 minutes. It's just sitting in my library because I didn't like it, but my nephew loves it so I can't sell it, at least not just yet.

    This is pretty embarrassing but I bought Red Dead Redemption and hardly played it. I thought I would enjoy a 3rd person shooter but I couldn't make time for it in between the sports games that I play. I also bought Suikoden 3 and did not play it. I gave that one to a friend. If i was younger and had more time then I would never dare do such a thing. Such is life.

    There are people who do that? If you don't have time or already know that you are not going to play it anytime soon, why do you even bother getting it? At least wait for a price drop or something like that, no reason to waste your money at the moment.

    I bought Infamous 2 and Uncharted 2 thinking that they were sandbox type games and would up being VERY disappointed. It seems like there is an entire genre of games where there's a set of obstacles and/or puzzles and there's only one way to get around them. The game sort of forces you through the storyline instead of the player having control over where the storyline goes.

    Sadly, I have never played Valkyria Chronicles. I loved the anime, and played a good bit of the sequel, but never played the first game. I saw it on sale at GameStop one day, picked it up, and just never put it into the PS3 to start playing. I even bought and downloaded the Selvaria DLC for it. One of these days...

    So many games mate, so many games. Steam sale is to blame for the whole scenario. I have bought so many games in the last summer sales again. I will never play more than 50% of the game I own.

    I bought Prototype and I never played it. It was still fresh in the case. After a month I took it back to Walmart and I got my money back. The game just didn't look interesting to me when I took it home. I know sounds strange.

    Wow...there are quite a few. And I always regret seeing them on my shelf.

    Some of them are...

    Gran Turismo 5
    Need for Speed Shift 2
    Resistance 2
    Motorstorm Pacific Rift

    I could have bought a PS Vita or 3DS if I didn't buy these games! What a waste.

    Medal of Honor: Warfighter

    I can't really say why I've never played it

    I bought Assassins Creed and haven't touched it ever since, let alone open it. I just haven't had it within me to invest the hours it requires to finish the game. The story is great and all, but it just takes too long for my liking. It's also basically the same thing over and over, you scale walls and assassinate high ranking officials.

    Too many to list, honestly. I've bought hundreds of games that I never got around to playing thanks to Steam, and on PS3 I've bought at least a couple dozen games that I never got around to. For instance, while I played the first hour or so of Bioshock, I never really...PLAYED it...I also bought Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and never even touched that. Oh, how about God of War 3? I haven't played 1 or 2, so I didn't want to play 3 yet, but I bought it anyways. Oh, the Prince of Persia HD remakes.....I Am Alive....several more, mostly just downloaded games. It's too easy to download something and forget about it. Curse digital downloads!

    UFC and Clash of the Titans. I haven't played either more than about 10 minutes because they are just awful in my opinion. I think UFC is OK, but the AI response and how the characters operate is very sluggish and annoying. As for COTT, it's just boring as hell!

    I bought Super Street Fighter 4, played it once for a few hours, and haven't touched it since. I don't really know why, either, but at least it's one of those games that's never going to age, so if I haven an aching for some Street Fighter, I have it. I also remember being demoralized by getting my ass kicked online.

    Bought PeS '08 mainly because of friends influence and ended up almost not playing it at all. As a personal choice I bought Far Cry 2 but ended up hating it, I have to try it out again since I'm a huge fan of FC3.

    I bought The Orange Box but only played Portal. I would have played Team Fortress 2, but I've heard the servers for the PS network are pretty much a ghost town. Half Life never really interested me, though I'm thinking of giving it a try lately. So many people have been bugging me to play it, haha. I also have an unopened copy of Motor Storm that came with the PS3, and one of the later Ratchet and Clank games. Someone gave it to me as a gift, but since I haven't played the previous games, I didn't want to start at the end of a series.

    Mostly Need For Speed Hot Presuit because I had played it so many times before I bought it. I also tried to play skyrim but I never really got into it.. I think it's because I don't love single player RPGs

    Go and play it right now! Half Life 2 (and its expansions which are included in Orange Box) is one of my fav games!
    Dont worry about not playing the first.HF2 may be a little dated and doesnt have trophy support but the story,adventure and sounds are awesome.

    I didn't play Payday 2 as much as I thought I would. I usually research and think about a purchase a lot beforehand, so I always play through anything I get. But Payday is one I haven't picked up again in a while. It was fun for the first week or so. I am actually looking forward to maybe a third one, to see what they could do with it, how they could expand on a great game idea.

    I have Devil May Cry 4 and FFXIII2 that I haven't played all the way through yet. I bought these when they were on sale, but I haven't finished them. I have a bad habit of buying a game then never finishing it because I get another game I want to play, then I will get in the mood for an old game and start playing that. I have lots of games that I haven't finished both old and new.
