Unfinished Games (360 edition)

There was a game giveaway at work today and I ended up with Dead Space 2 for my Xbox 360. This is awesome but it's also a problem, in that I am still playing Dragon Age: Origins (rather slowly) and I have not yet finished the first Dead Space either.

This led me to wonder how many unfinished games I have on my shelf and to think maybe this will be my resolution for now - to try and finish these games before I buy any new ones.

The List:
  • Dragon Age: Origins - my character is in the process of becoming a Grey Warden so I'm still fairly early on in the game.
  • Dead Space - apparently I'm in Chapter 4: Obliteration Imminent.
  • Red Dead Redemption - in Mexico.
  • Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - I recently started a new game, I have an older save I think but it's not very far along either.
  • Prey - I lost my save, so this one I'll have to start fresh.
  • Halo: ODST - never really played it, I bought it mostly for Nathan Fillion but maybe I'll finish it sometime.
I have a few other unfinished games that I'm not gonna put on the list because I don't really intend to finish them.

What games do you have on your shelf that you're planning to finish but haven't gotten around to yet?

Also, should I keep working on DA:O or stop for a bit to finish up Dead Space so I can start working on DS2? I'm just curious as to your opinions, though I'm pretty sure I know what I'm going to do about it.


  1. I'm in the final 1/3rd of my renegade FemShep playthrough of ME1. I want to finish it and play through ME2 with that character before ME3 comes out. So glad it got delayed, frankly. lol

    I'm in Chapter 5 of Resonance of Fate. This game has a difficulty curve like a brick wall, but is full of all the JRPG sillyness, and epic-ness that I love, so I plan to finish it.

    Also in Mexico of Red Dead. I play it in spurts cuz I get so lost in side stuff, and then I die, and lose a bunch of progress and get frustrated and not play it for a while. Heh.

    L.A. Noire, at the Traffic desk, still early in the game.

    I started inFamous at work, but didn't keep my data, so I have to restart it, but I want. Still have to figure that out.

    I never did finish all that DLC for Borderlands. Kinda miss playing it with folks.

    Up to the "MK3" section of Mortal Kombat. Been playing it when Dave is over, cuz he really digs watching the story unfold.

    And yea, I want to replay Portal 2.

    Also, I plan to some day get Witcher (and Witcher 2), and I am tempted by the Oblivion: 5 Year Anniversary Edition.

  2. Um, I have to say on the RDR issue you're having... L2SAVE!!!

    Yeah, there's a little bit of Borderlands DLC that I still haven't finished (Moxie's got boring imo). But I didn't mention it here because obviously I'm talking about 360 games. If I talked about PC games, my list would be at least 3 times as long.

    I want to play the single player campaign of Portal 2 and maybe do the co-op again with some people. LA Noire looks pretty good, I'm very tempted to pick it up. I probably will eventually.
