Do you own games you haven't played yet?

 Pages 1 2 3 4 5 NEXT

I remember when I was a kid getting a new game was a rare occurrence. Not only were they more expensive (I've seen SNES games for upwards of 69.99, sometimes 79.99), money was also harder to come by. I had to save my allowance for months to be able to afford a game. It would be an exciting event and I could never wait to go home and pop it in.

Fast forward to nowadays. If you hold out on a game just a few months sometimes you can pay a fraction of the original price. Even better, older games from last gen are as cheap at 6.99 or 9.99. I have a robust PS2 collection that really didn't cost that much.

Because of this I have backlogs of games, many of which have never even been put in the system yet. Hell, I have a few games I got for Christmas nearly 2 months ago that I haven't even gotten around to.

So, what about you? Do you have a hefty backlog of titles, some you haven't even played, or do you always pop it in as soon as you buy it?

Red Dead Redemption has been sitting on my bookcase unplayed and alone for for several months now.

I actually have Little Big Planet that I got for my birthday.... in 2008. I have not even put it in the system yet.

Tons ranginf from nes to ps1 . I am a console gamer so no huge steam backlog . I must have around 20 unplayed games . But i am slowly getting through all of them . My new years resolution for 2011 was to reduce my backlog by half . Back then i must of had around 50 games . Now only twenty . Plus the new games i buy . Just to give you an idea of how much i play video games . When peope talk about no life losers who play games all day , they are refering to me.

I have a backlog of around 20 games on Steam, that I have yet to play. Killing Floor seems to take most of my time, along with stuff like my education, job and social life :p

I also have a couple of PS2/Xbox/Xbox360/PS3 titles I haven't played yet, but only around 1-3 per console.

I had plenty, and then the holiday sales came along and made things even worse. I've been working my way through since then though, and I'm down to a reasonable number. What's remaining is as follows...

Console games:
- Skyward Sword
- Rayman Origins
- Final Fantasy VII via PS store (Actually, this one I started but then got distracted after about 60-90 mins and haven't gone back to it)

Steam games:
- STALKER: Clear Sky (Skipped it on release but it should be OK with the "complete" mod. If not I'll just replay one of the other two again.)
- Red Faction: Guerilla
- Dawn of War 2 (got it as a prize in the steam thing, which is pretty awesome)
- Mount and Blade: Warband (I've played the demo and I just know it's going to steal all of my time so I've put it off)
- X-Com: UFO Defense
- The Oddbox (though I played through Munch's Oddysee on the Xbox)
- I also haven't played the Rise of the Samurari DLC for Shogun 2 yet

- Planescape: Torment
- Baldur's Gate 2
- Arcanum: of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
- Freespace 2
- Jagged Alliance 2
- Sacrifice
- Ultima VII and the two Ultima Underworld games
- Enclave

There is some serious gaming brilliance ahead of me.

On a side note, despite all of this... what were the last three games I played? Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, and the first two Penumbra games. Finished them all for the second time. Tomorrow I must start an unstarted game. I'm thinking Arcanum.

I bought Infamous 2 sometime last year for full price, I still haven't played it. Annoyingly, I can now buy Infamous 2 for a fraction of the price. If only I had waited until I was ready to play it before I bought it, I could hav saved myself a fair bit of cash. Yes, I'm an idiot.

On Steam I've got:

-From Dust
-Amnesia TDD
-Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War II (and the Chaos Rising DLC)


-Castlevania Order of Ecclesia (DS)
-Chrono Trigger (DS)

Not THAT hefty of a backlog I guess.

About 3/4 of my steam library comes from sales and bundles, and roughly 1/2 of my steam library is unplayed. :/

Although recently there haven't been as many amazing sales, and I've had a chance to catch up on some games.

A few from the indie bundles. Haven't played much of Odin Sphere because I'm trying to make it look not-shit on my widescreen, plus I have other games to play. Pretty much everything else has been played, but not quite finished.

Quite a few, actually.

I have The Witcher for the PC for nearly a year now, but I haven't been able to make it work on my computer for some weird reason.

I've also played almost no Just Cause 2, a game which I've also owned for about a year.

Final Fantasy 13 and 13-2.

I bought Portal 2 on Steam for like $5 during a sale a few months back. Just haven't really had the time to get around to it.

Let's see...

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is collecting dust on my shelf.

My brother has recently got himself InFamous 2, and spoiled the ending for me, so I'm not motivated to play.

Prince of Persia: Red and Blue Scarf hero is also left untouched.

And Deus Ex: HR, too, is sobbing in loneliness.

I've got a couple of old PC titles I bought from the bargain bin that I haven't played yet (mostly because my PC won't run them anymore), but other than that, no. I've got loads of games I haven't finished though.

I have mirrors edge... I know it is a game I will enjoy, and that I will play it and complete it one day... but that day will be when there isn't another game that I want to play before it... I've had it since a few months after it was released! :/

I also have a load of games on GOG that I got in the christmas sale, but knowing that my laptop wont run them! I will have them for when I have a better laptop! :P (Yes... in it's current state, my lap top will not run the original Fallout... I tried!

I have about 235 games for my PS2. I've played about 60 of them, of which half of them I actually completed. As for the rest... Well, let's just say I'll know what to do during my retirement. (If I ever manage to get that old.)

Aaaaaand also about 15 PS3 games, 8 X360 games and 4 Wii games that have never even felt the warmth of a console laser.

I have Heavy Rain and GOW collection from the PSP to play yet. I came into some money (and now it's all sticky) so I bought a few PS3 games at the same time. I would have started heavy rain but theres something on the disc and I'm too lazy to go wash it off.

Got a couple I bought on Steam when I was drunk. Resident Evil 5 and Zeno Clash.

I got Arkham City for Christmas and haven't played it yet because I got several other games including Skyrim and Resistance 3, and I also got Dragon Age Origins back from my sister (in a rare instance where I bought a game, and let her borrow it before I could play it) so I've been playing all of those and haven't opened Arkham City yet.

I also have mainstays that I play often like sports games (Madden, NBA Jam, The Show, Tiger Woods) and I also play Rock Band just about every day so I just haven't had the time to.

Oh, I also got God of War 3 for my birthday in 2010 and still haven't played it yet. Not sure why though.

I bought the HD collection of Shadow of the Colossus and Ico a while back and have yet to touch Ico. Mainly because the only tv I have access to at the moment is a piece of crap and I want to play it on a somewhat decent television.

I have an unopened Alice from one of them 4.99 - 3 for 10 pounds kinda deals...I'll get around too it....maybe

i've played them all but i've not competed them all

10-15 mostly PS2.

C&C 3 Tiberium Wars but only because when I first bought it my pc couldn't handle it. Since I can't return it I kept hold of it waiting for the day to play it when I get a better PC.
When that day did come, my dad bloody lost it (he made me to clean up my room and he told me he will put my stuff elsewhere)!

Final Fantasy 13 and 13-2.

ya just ff 13 for me

I got Brutal Legend for the 360 in the middle of 2011 and have not played it yet.

Damn Steam, with it's sales and ease of everything... Let's see:

Bunch of Heroes
Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening
Gemini Rue
Hacker Evolution
Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
Just Cause 2
Metro 2033

and quite a few titles I've tried for less than an hour, never to open again, barely would call it playing:
The Binding Of Isaac
Company of Heroes (on Steam)
Day of Defeat: Source
Garry's Mod (retail version)
GTA: San Andreas (on Steam)
Frozen Synapse
Any DLC of Magicka (got them all)
Neverwinter Nights 2
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising
Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad
Street Fighter IV
Titan Quest & Immortal Throne (on Steam)
Tropico 3
Universe Sandbox

- Planescape: Torment
- Baldur's Gate 2
- Arcanum: of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
- Freespace 2
- Jagged Alliance 2
- Sacrifice
- Ultima VII and the two Ultima Underworld games
- Enclave

OH GOD. Arcanum. My absolutely favorite game of all time. What is it still doing in your 'did not play' list? Well? Go play it. Now. I mean it.

It's the most open-ended role-playing game. Even today. It had its flaws and a few bugs, but the story is brilliant, the characters you encounter are deep and believable (especially your companions, I'd even compare them to Mass Effect's companions. Some of them, at least). And let's not even mention the enormous amount of NPC responses for your character, depending on how you made him/her.

Seriously, it's an amazing game. Play it next. Do it!

OT: Well, I've been trying to start playing Temple of Elemental Evil and Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, but I never can seem the find the time to do so. Pretty much these two.

I have several games acquired through Steam Sales I've yet to play. These include:

Star Trek Online
Sam & Max: Season 1 episodes (which were won with coal)
Oddbox - Oddworld collection
Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity (I had this on Impulse, sans the final expansion)
Project Aftermath

I just recently finished Dead Space 2, which was great. But otherwise, I've nothing else still waiting for me to play.

Unless you count Starcraft 2, which I've yet to finish the campaign. Just can't find the time or interest to do so. Which is odd as I loved Starcraft 1.

I have purchased several bundles on steam that I have yet to get my fingers completely wet in.

With all these bundles there are a handful of Steam games I haven't touched/activated...more specifically I havent really played anything from the Indie Gala bundle except for Critical Mass.

I do have quite a sizable pile of shame when it comes to PS2 games and only a couple of current gen games.

I have had both Yakuza 4 and Agarest War Zero for a few months now and they haven't touched my PS3/360.

On the PS2 I have:
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2
Atlier Iris 2 & 3
Shadow Hearts 2 and Covenant
Ar Tonelico

I am sure I have a few others...and many other games that I started but never beat

GalCiv 2, which I bought to support StarDock for their anti-DRM stance.
Baldur's Gate 2, which my friend gave me.
Tribes 2, which I picked up in a bargain bin.

That's about it... hm, funny, they're all sequels.

Team Fortress 2. Haven't even touched it yet.

Well pre-September I had owned Dragon Age: Origins from when it was released and never played it, as my system couldn't handle it and I was too dirt poor to upgrade, but now the only games I own but haven't played either come free (lie TF2) or are titles from the millions of indie bundles floating through the atmosphere.
