Default Shelf of shame

Looking at my console games with a view to moving them to higher, safer, grounds. I came across some great titles, games I really love but... never finished (some not even close).

Worst entries on my 'shelf of shame' are Okami and Metroid Prime: Corruption (both on Wii).

Two games that if you asked me I'd say I love, but I'm probably only 3 to 5 hours into each, and haven't touched them for 6 months. I just found they were games that need a good hour minimum session to get into, and I generally game in 45 min spurts these days /sigh

So was wondering, what games on your guys' 'shelf of shame'?

I can't tell you which ones I haven't finished, because some of them I wrote reviews about...

However, when reviewing there comes a point where the review must be done, so you've got to stop playing the game and write. I always try and finish the game after though... unless it's rubbish

Hehe yo funny, J!

Would be interested to hear about how playing games critically for review purposes effects your enjoyment or otherwise of them. Would be off topic here, but if you ever feel like making a post about it, I'd read it.

Main entry on my Shelf'o'Shame(tm) is Dragon Age: Origins. I am attempting to remedy that at the moment, trying a Rogue with the Dwarf Noble origin.

I usually default to the mage class, so we'll see how we go.

While I have several unfinished or unplayed games the most shameful one is FFXII. I'm a big Final Fantasy fan and it still waits for me... unfinished. *sigh* So many games, so little time.
