Seeing Stella Glow sitting neatly wrapped up, yet not wanting to touch it, makes me think: how many of you have games that you just haven't got around to starting around the house? Any utter gems that just haven't convinced you to take off their cellophane (literal or virtual)? Let's say games you've had for a couple of weeks, enough time to have played them if you wanted to.

I had Wii Sports HD unwrapped for ages before a friend came 'round where I wanted to unwrap it. Also my father bought me Assassins' Creed III as a present: I ended up trading it in, untouched.

Good idea! I bought Mario Power Tennis, a week or so after its launch, for other family members to play (they were fans of the original). Nope. Still sitting there. I've even pulled the box out of the shelf slightly, in a bid to catch people's eyes. Nothing.
Virtually, I bought both Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger on the Wii Virtual Console; about 4 years ago now. They're both classics... apparently. Also see 2/3 of my Steam library.

I've got a fair few second hand ones and that, picked up on the cheap with the thinking I'll get around to playing them eventually. I tend to play everything I buy new within a sensible amount of time, these days. That said, Xenoblade got ditched for Zelda, and I haven't played Zelda since I got Pokken. And the Xbox isn't even getting touched during all this Nintendo magic, despite me having loads of Gears and Halo I could be playing.

I've got literally dozens of games that I've bought but not started yet. There's far too many to list them all, but I'm typing while looking at my 3DS collection, and sitting in their cellophane are Castlevania: Mirror of Fate, Fantasy Life, Majora's Mask 3D, Prof. Layton Azran Legacy, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins, Kingdom Hearts, Nintendogs & cats, Resident Evil Revelations, Yoshi's New Island, Scribblenauts Unlimited, and two (?!?) copies of Codename S.T.E.A.M.. That's ridiculous.

I've got unstarted Wii games galore, like Inazuma Strikers, Project Zero 2, the two PokéPark games and - bizarrely - two of the those three Operation Rainfall games. I've even got two sealed XBox games and a sealed Dreamcast game that were bought back in the day!

Stu would break this thread. Grin

In my house there are four: Bayonetta 2 (which won't be started until the original is over), Batman: Arkham Origins (which I'm sort of afraid of playing), Alien Syndrome (one day) and Pokémon Colosseum (not sure where my GC memory card is...).

Save Bayonetta 2 and Arkham Origins for Christmas playing. They're both lovely for that.

Ooh yes, Bayo 2's on my list as well, after my abject failure to get on with its prequel.

I thought you'd have a lot to contribute to this thread Cappa! They mostly bargain buys?

I bought Batman Arkham knight towards the end of last year but after the bitter sting that Origins gave me I just can't be arsed to play it at the minute, on the Nintendo side of things I have Year Walk unplayed on wii U & since I know that's a relatively short game I should really set aside a night to play it.

Aye, mostly. I've really got to nip it in the bud though, I've got a daft number of games that I'll just never bother with. I'm even looking at my PS4 games - I've got nine, and five of them are unplayed Duh!

I'm still really surprised about you getting Stella Glow, Balla as the combat looks a lot like a Tactical RPG and your not a fan of Fire Emblem which is rather similar.

I have lot's of games sort of started like The Witcher III which I'm about 45mins in and that game is really long that I've pretty much not started it.

But games with ZERO amount of play as I do test most games I get that have like 1 minute play but these I don't think I've even done that

There are four games on your list that I love, mas, and another one I think is pretty good. You should have a go on Crimson Shroud and SteamWorld Dig, fo sho. Thumbs Up!

My list of games I haven't started is a little off as a fair chunk of the games I haven't touched weren't purchased with me in mind. I've got quite a few cheap Wii games that are on me, but the only games I could name that aren't as loved as they should be are Murdered: Souls Suspect & TLoU Remastered. I'm much more likely to play a bit and give up than leave it unloved.

As seen here, too many to list!

Notable offenders for games I really want to get around to are the Professor Layton series, Bloodborne, Ni no Kuni, Luigi's Mansion 2, the FFXIII trilogy and Ratchet and Clank: Nexus. They're all games I know I'd love, but my ever-swelling backlog keeps me from getting to them.

Don't look at my actual backlog as I put nearly all my DC games as unplayed as I'm not sure if 5 mins, it works counts as played.

But Jay has reminded me of another thing Final Fantasy X-2 which I've got on the HD collection on PS4 and the VITA as a download.

I think a lot of gamers just like buying games for the sake of it (I've been like this myself) but the last few years I've tried to keep it in check by only buying something new if I've beaten at least 2 or 3 games first.

I'm trying to rein in those tendencies too but occasionally something just takes my fancy and I have to get it. Very much a butterfly gamer, me.

Some of you chaps should go single-format, it seems - I play nearly all my games because I don't have that many. Tongue


On another topic, I've got to provide a calming word, and say that I found three of Zero's four loves mediocre.  

Crimson Shroud is no doubt a deep game if you can get past the immensely simple aesthetics, but those put me off from the word go.  FFV (the one I think many will agree with me on) is the worst FF I've played, a game whose only selling point (its job system) is done much better by RPGs like DQIX and the Bravelys (Bravelies?), and has few other redeeming qualities.  

And Steamworld Dig (this one most will, I daresay, disagree with) I never liked much.  For someone who loves level/world design above many things, procedural mine generation is a kiss of death on a game, and the non-procedurally generated bits didn't feel any better.

Personal taste is, of course, everything.  I believe that the consensus is that CS is a'right, SD is brilliant, and FFV isn't up to much.

Well across the PS4, Wii U, 3ds and PC I don't have all that many I haven't started because I pretty much only buy things I want to play right away.

If the thread was, how many games haven't you finished, then I'd have a ridiculous list. But I at least try and make sure I get several hours out of each major (£20+) purchase.

PS4: Watchdogs - still sealed, but it came in the Ubisoft bundle with my console and Ass Cred Syndicate, the latter of which I finished before swapping it for the Witcher 3 and something else.

3ds: Xenoblade Chronicles - I bought this before I had a new 3ds, now that I've got one I'll get round to it once I'm done with Devil Survivor and Pokemon Red.

PC: Anno 2027 - I swear I didn't buy this, it just magically appeared in my steam account.
     Foul Play - Will play with Drunka at some point, it's a co-op thing.
     A bunch of games that came free with other games, don't really count those.

I hadn't thought about HD Collections, in that case my list jumps up a fair bit as I'll often play 1 or 2 and not even start the 3rd, heck with Splinter Cell and Hitman I barely played the first.

3ds

-Shin Megami Tensei 4
-smt Devil Survivor overclocked
-smt Devil Survivor 2 record breaker

PS3

-Batman arkham city
-Devil May Cry 1
-Devil May Cry 3
-Disgaea D2 a brighter darkness
-ICO
-Tales of Symphonia hd
-Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World hd
-Tales of Zestiria

VC Wii U

-Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

PC

-Trails in the Sky
-Trails in the Sky Second Chapter


I'll probably get around to playing most of these at some point, although I have no intentions of playing Batman.  Bought that when it was on clearance and since then I've just gone all "nopenopeNOPE" to realism in games.  Dunno why, I just have no time for games with realistic presentation any more.

As an aside the backloggery made compiling this list super easy.  Grin

I've got a bunch of free games sitting on my Xbox 360 (from the Games with Gold) that I haven't broken the digital cellophane on:


  • Metro Last Light
  • MGS Ground Zeroes
  • Thief
  • Hitman HD collection
  • Castlestorm


Okamiden, Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer, Zack & Wiki, Metroid Other M, Story of Seasons. Mostly stuff I've picked up cheap and not been too arsed about starting.
