What the title says :D
For me it will be Halo 3 and Gears of war 2. Too many achievements and you always need to arrange stuff with other players which gets annoying with those games! you guys?

Guitar Hero 3. I'd have done it by now, but noone around here has the time or ability to run Rhythm through Living Legends.
Also FFXIII, simply because I'm so damn bored of it.

Every game ever except Uno, which is my only game completed. So why am I here? This is a good discussion site for games.

About 90% of my games ^_^

It would be awesome if I had 1) the time 2) the patience 3) the skill (Guitar Hero etc) to 100% all the games that I had, but it's just not feasible for me.

If I enjoy a game I'll beat it, if I think a game is exceptionally good I'll play through it multiple times while trying to get more achievements (Fallout 3, Dead Rising 1 & 2) or if it's a game I think is really awesome, I'll keep playing it over and over (Gears)

I am not worried about my completion % (just take a look at my games played list :p )

I would have to agreed with GTA 4. It is a great game just takes a long time and I get distracted.

Gears of war 2, Red dead redemption, Ninja gaiden 2, Final Fantasy 13, Lost planet 1, 2, and colonies edition.

Fifa games

and probably red dead redemption (hate the online multiplayer)

Corrupt.
10-16-2010, 12:57 AM
Quite a few, especially GH games.

Just a note, first this should really be in the games forum and also the topic has been raised numerous times :P

For me the multiplayer is fun but what I don`t like about RDR is it has to many achievements that don`t have enough points.

Lots of games, because they are to old and i want to keep playing more "newer" games.

10-16-2010, 03:53 AM
the list is quite long, but ill post the most obvious ones... gta4, the GH games, possibly Lost Planet 1 and 2.

I'd have to chime in saying the majority of music games. I get them because I enjoy them but there is no way I will be able to play Expert on any of them ever.

Games I don't want to put the effort into like Halo 3 or Gears of War...usually the multiplayer achivements are what I won't get unless they are co-op.

Some of those you need to put in waaay to much time and I'd rather be playing something different.

Chromehounds - servers shut down
Ninja Gaiden 2 - too e'fin hard

This. Also Gears and Halo (like multiplayer intense games) and then games where you have to collect X amount of stuff or do Y Z amount of times etc.

Gears 2, I don't try to complete games though.

PeterP91
10-16-2010, 02:40 PM
probably dead rising.. i dont wanna even try to go for 1000.. and dead or alive 4. and probably F.E.A.R 2.. i heard that it was 500 hours online and that is with boosting :O

MW2 was one of the easiest games I've complated. Veteran was sooo much easier on this then on WaW. :D

Right off the top of my head, Halo 3. I'd imagine Gears of War, all the music games that I have. The multiplayer is usually what gets in my way. Aside from Halo 3, unless I have friends to play with, I'm not all that into doing MP.

All depends on how much I like the game.

master_shake_350
10-16-2010, 04:51 PM
Quite possibly every game I own. I have only completed 10 which is pretty rubbish.

There are plenty of threads like this one, but:

Hexic HD and Metal Slug 3.

Arenazombie
10-16-2010, 06:50 PM
Lost Planet Colonies (too hard)
Sonic the Hedgehog retail (too shitty)
Sega Superstar Tennis (too much effort)
Left 4 Dead (since Valve will never fix the glitched achievement)

SmoothAsEgg5
10-16-2010, 07:08 PM

any game with online mp achievements
1 vs. 100 lol

So far there hasn't been a game I couldn't complete, at least 1k. I thought I'd never get Street Fighter 4 and BFBC but I did it. Star Ocean is testing that though, so time consuming.

TriRock
10-17-2010, 08:09 AM
GH / Rock Band series: No matter what, I just couldn't beat Expert. After my guitars wore out, never got a replacement.
FEAR2: The MP is shit and takes ages. Bad combination.
Army of Two: One has laggy servers, the other glitched DLC chievos.
GTA IV: The more I played it, the more I hated it. Propably won't even bother with GTA V once it comes out.

BiggSmile92
10-17-2010, 08:17 AM
any of the Guitar Heroes

ShaneForWax
10-17-2010, 08:18 AM
The Rock Band and Guitar Hero games. I can't play on expert. Ever.

10-17-2010, 01:38 PM
All Guitar Hero games. GTA IV because I don't like it. And in general, most of my games. I'm not dedicated enough to get 100% on everything.

Hitchman
10-17-2010, 02:12 PM
where to start, where to start. I will never finish Devil May Cry 4, Grand Theft Auto 4, Blue Dragon and Rock Band.

I will obviously never finish Tiger Woods 07 and NBA Live 06 since they have closed down the servers.

The Tarbender
10-17-2010, 03:23 PM
Pretty much any sports game, any of the Guitar hero games, monopoly (missing 1 that seems more to be luck than skill) and amy of the games that you have to play multi-player or on-line cause I just do not do that enough.

Death Metal Jim
10-17-2010, 03:31 PM
Dead or Alive: Xtreme 2.

Anybody that's played this game knows exactly why. I can only think of Rumble Roses as being just as time consuming (luckily I haven't played that one just yet).

TacticalTodger
10-17-2010, 03:55 PM
Guitar hero 3/WT/Rock band 2. Pretty much all Music games :L

GTAIV - too much boosting needed

1 vs 100 - It finished I could never get the 12 question in a row, kinda sucks tbh..

Rad86N
10-17-2010, 03:59 PM
every single game it seems... because all of them have at least one achievement that i dont have the guts to unlock... like find all thousand flags or discover all secret locations.. im not much of a gay to play and complete all there is.. important to me is to fully enjoy my game

Radioactive Microbe
10-17-2010, 05:33 PM
Dead or Alive 4,
Super Street Fighter 4
I just don't think I could ever do those trials...

I was expecting to hear about all the random impossible games people own; It was weird reading through the first page and all anybody says is Halo, GH, Lost Planet and FF (and one person said MW2...WTF?!), which to me are far from impossible. Off the top of my head:

FEAR 2: 1040/1230 - Boost online for 120 hours? No!
Star Ocean: TLH - One of the hardest and most time consuming games on the 360.
Galga Legions - Impossible lol.
Luxor 2 - See above.
The Beatles: Rock Band - Lolol 3 mics.

lordthrash
10-17-2010, 06:31 PM
Any of the Guitar Hero/Rockband games. I can't play drums and i can't sing so that'll never happen. Also GTA IV, this game is bad, just horrid and i cannot stand to even try to play it again. Online achievements suck ass!!

10-17-2010, 11:54 PM
for me the game i'll never complete or finish the second level at all is Naughty Bear, it was a good concept, but the narrator "ITS NAUGHTY TIME" over and over again did my head in!

Mirrors Edge hate it too much. Forza 2, probably FFXIII although I want to.

FFFreak1129
10-18-2010, 08:53 AM
Devil May Cry 4
Guitar Hero 3
The Beatles Rock Band
Gears of War 2 - Shame too I only need to get the Annex and Submission achievements but they are tough. Though if I somehow got them I would go for the Seriously achievement to complete it.

NomoreNiceGuy
10-18-2010, 03:21 PM
Gears of war 2
World at War
Grand theft Auto IV

Sgt Scyther
10-18-2010, 03:53 PM
A lot. Some that come to mind are Dead or Alive 4 and Dragon Ball: Burst Limit (I don't even own these, my friend brought them over), Assassin's Creed (sold it), Wet (sold it), Dead Rising (too frustrating), Mirror's Edge (ditto), Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (ridiculous achievements if you're a casual fighting game player like me), Super Street Fighter 4 (I suck at the trials), Toy Story 3 (I really don't want to go through the grind of collecting all those gold stars), and there are probably others I'm forgetting.

Maybe someday I can go and complete some of these but right now it seems unlikely and I have bigger concerns right now anyway.

GTA IV - no way i'm going for Petrovic achievement, so I quit while i was ahead
Gears 1 - I cannot dedicate 150+ hours of my life on kill grinding
FEAR 2, COD:WAW, COD3, Far Cry 2, Saints Row 2 - just takes so much time i don't have

Also:
Hexic HD, Poker Smash, Yosumin, Peggle - I just don't have the skills to get them done

Far cry 2 - Hated that games guts
Time shift - Shocking Game
Halo Reach - I hate tat game so much and multiplayer sucks so just single player for me!!!
DMC4 - Extremly hard game

and thats just a few. I always go for the hard games for achievements

Need For Speed: Pro Street - Only game I own with unearned impossible achievements (I luckily got all the achievements for 1 vs 100 before that got pulled).

GTA IV - I'm never getting to Rank 1 on multiplayer; the community is awful and the multiplayer just isn't fun.

Zuma - It isn't for lack of trying, I'm just never getting that 2mil point achievement.

Mega Man 9 & 10 - I think these are self explanatory why I'm not ever going to finish those achievements ;)

10-20-2010, 05:22 PM
The game - I always lose it.

Earth271072
10-20-2010, 06:37 PM
Guitar Hero 3 and 1 vs. 100. They discontinued it before I got all the achievements :mad:

Opiate42
10-20-2010, 07:35 PM
Shellshock 2 - the game is just so terrible I can't bring myself to finish the campaign even once.

And as SmoothasEgg said, guitar games and online MP ones for the same reason.

GTA IV I just don't like the game, Any of the games that use guitar because I can do normal at best, Left 4 Dead 1 since the update reset my kill count from 45k to 0. Zombie Apocolypse because I just don't like it.

Wolfgg
10-24-2010, 09:41 PM
this topic seems more or less related to "achievement complete" ... but ive got many games I truly enjoy on the back burner, eternal sonata is one ive been meaning to play through since it released... this was back in like september of 2007.. I have achievements marked from near release but im not sure whats holding me back, the art style and such is all superb, I was really getting into enchanted arms as well, but have put it on hiatus, the bottom line is... fallout new vegas is interrupting everything lol

10-24-2010, 10:45 PM
COD4. All i need is Mile High Club. Unfortunately, my rage levels skyrocket during Mile High Club :P

I know how you feel. The last achievement i got in CoD 4 was on Jan.28... 2008, nearly 3 years ago!

most of the games i have. I don't try to go for achievements a lot, especially now that i am in college, i have so little time for gaming, so achievements take a back seat.

bigbobbyfrog
10-24-2010, 11:17 PM
Forza 3 - I've got 49 out of the 50 achievements but just can't be bothered completing the other 140+ events to get the final achievement.

10-25-2010, 07:04 PM
Guitar Hero III- I don't have the skills.
Luxor 2- same, I don't have the skills.
Game Room- it's glitched on my account, plus it's too much $$$ to complete.

I want to say GTA IV too but I am going to give it another shot- basically need all the online cheeves.
