Games you started but never finished

I was wondering if any of you have ever started a game and after a couple of hours or so have though 'no this isn't for me'. It's only happened to me a couple of times as I tend to look at most games a while before buying.

It did happen to me with The Witcher 2. I played it for a couple of hours before giving up on it. Now the two achievements I gained for it sit on my gamer card mocking me for my haste in picking it up. Not saying its a bad game just not my cup of tea.

Another was Far Cry 2. Could of been a great game but I just found that some of the mechanics of the game were really annoying.

How about you?

Fallout 3. I'm about halfway through the game and just don't enjoy it enough to finish it. I'll go back to it one day and try it again, that's for sure.

Far Cry 2. Started it. Hated it. 10G only.

Bioshock, Dead Rising 2, Resident Evil 6, Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena and a few more. Most of these games I haven't played past 100G and just had to sell them. :/

Yup. Dead Rising. I have just 1 achievement in that. May try to give it another chance later though.

Edit:
Oh yeah, just remembered about Lost Planet: Colonies. I've only got a handful of achievements in that, but gave up with it in the end. I'm not even sure I have it any more.

I've done this quite a lot unfortunately. But I also have many games which I've started and have not continued because of other reasons, i.e. if I've bought another game or something else has become popular with my friends etc. So I'll try and separate them into two groups.

Games I've started and haven't liked. (* means I plan to give these another try)

Bioshock
Far Cry 2
Assassin's Creed 3*
Alone In The Dark
Frontlines Fuel of War
F.E.A.R.
Aliens vs Predator*
SSX*
Crysis*
Oblivion*

Games I've started and haven't finished for other reasons

Dead Space
Transformers War for Cybertron
Hitman HD Trilogy
Deus Ex HR
Left 4 Dead
Left 4 Dead 2
Dead Rising Case West
Zombie Driver HD
Mass Effect 2
Metro 2033

I could go on and on in both lists but I'll leave it at that for now. lol

Skyrim.

I played the shit out of Oblivion until the disc practically melted; I was beyond pumped when Skyrim was announced, I stood in line when Gamestop opened that morning, and got my preorder with cloth map....

...and promptly never played the game. I played about an hour the day I got it, and about another hour a couple months ago. I just cannot get into it, for whatever reason. It holds zero interest for me. I even think it's a terrible game, yet I can't put my finger on why.

I'm going to trade it in for NHL 14 when that comes out.

Dead Rising 2 - 80g. Just didn't enjoy it at all. Found it tedious.

Enslaved - 80g. Awful game. Plenty of people recommended it but I found it boring as hell.

Tropico 3 - 5g. I intend going back to this soon. Really don't know why I got rid of this. Love my strategy games.

Risen 2 - 30g. God awful game, and a waste of my 20. Never playing it again. Avoid like the local slapper.

Dragon Age Origins - 70g. After playing Mass Effect, I thought I'd give it a try. How disappointed was I when I started it. Awful visuals and awful combat. Another game I will never play.

I've got quite a few, though I'm still planning to eventually come back to (most of) them. As sometimes it just wasn't the type of game I wanted to play at the time. Of course, it is a little hard to come back to some as when I also have a triple digit backlog.

Dragon's Dogma. I've tried to sit down and play it a few different times, but I just can't get into it. I don't really know what it is about the game, I just don't enjoy playing it.

i have a few of the easy achievement games, that i didn't finish and have no intention to, like King Kong, Prison Break and Saw.

the stuff i started, but didn't finish for whatever reason besides them being crap are Dishonored, which i think is a good game, but i can't keep interested in it, for some reason. then there's Forza 4, which is awesome, but the achievements are too daunting and i gave up after doing about 1/4 of the huge amount of races that you need to win.

This applies to both games I like and games I don't like (games I like being I just don't have the time to play them as often as I used to)
But as for games I couldn't get into...
I know GTA IV was one that I never completed just because I couldn't get into it.

I feel this deserves a little more explanation, as I realise how that looks considering Bioshock is one of the 360's most critically acclaimed titles and AvP, well, quite frankly isn't.

I have given Bioshock at least 4 or 5 attempts, with at least an hour or more each time, and I just cant get on with it. I am not entirely sure what it is. I think the graphics and the atmosphere are great, but I think in general I'm not really a fan of any type of media (film, stories, TV shows, games etc) which are based in the setting and in the era that Bioshock is.

I'll give AvP another shot because I have only tried it once, and it's very rare that I wont give games more than one attempt before giving up on them. I'm a fan of the Alien films so I'd feel more engaged in that storyline if it was/is faithful to the films etc. Though I have to say I didn't really see anything in the hour or so that I have played to make me think I'll like it any more than I do Bioshock.

At the end of the day though, every game, no matter how good or how bad, will have those that enjoy it and those that don't.

These are the ones that come to mind:

Condemned - I was extremely close to beating this game, but a glitch on the second to last level prevented me from going any further in the game. :/ I might start over again at some point if I feel like it so I can beat the game and wrap up some achievements.
Dynasty Warriors 6 - I decided to buy this game since many people recommended me to get it because I liked the Ninety-Nine Nights series. I tried it...and I hated it!
Elder Scrolls: Oblivion: A few people recommended this game to me, and I couldn't get into it at all! I found the game really boring fast (only played for an hour or so) and didn't like it.
From Dust - I liked this game at first, then I quickly lost interest in it.
Guitar Hero Aerosmith - This game just bored me for some reason; I should probably go back at some point and at least finish the career for some easy achievements and quick points.
Mirror's Edge - I really wanted to enjoy this game, however, I am AWFUL at this game. I may go give it another try so I can at least finish the story.

Beautiful Katamari - Got the worst cases of motion sickness.

Final Fantasy XIII - Forever ruined FF for me.

Not sure why everybody was recommending 6. It's considered to be the 2nd worst warriors game for the 360 (1st is Strikeforce). Try 7, Gundam 2, or one of the Orochi ones instead.

Magna Carta 2 and Lost Odyssey. I really liked both games, but I had other newer and "better" games waiting for me to play... so as soon as I got hung up on something, I moved on...

Dead Space - I really enjoyed it when I started it, but it got kind of repetitive for me =/.

GTA IV - Its a great game, but I always end up screwing around instead of doing missions haha.

Splinter Cell: Double Agent - only paid 2
Call of Duty 4 - borrowed off a mate.
Stranglehold - borrowed off a mate.

Happy with that as I only spent 2.

You shouldn't have to explain your reasons anyway, it's each to their own.

I never actually was able to finish playing Fallout New Vegas. Got, "Ain't that a kick in the head" and the game vanished. But there is a game I played and didn't like. Splinter Cell Conviction.

Saints Row is the only one that immediately comes to mind. Couldn't get into it at all. Felt dated as shit, and I had just played (and enjoyed) PGR 3 not too long before that. I haven't finished the career mode on Forza 2, and if we start counting things like that there may be a few more. (Though in this particular case it's mainly because the game won't let me play offline).

Save the drama. Some people like to elaborate or heaven forbid, have a conversation rather than a two word post. He's a big boy but I'm sure your little pat on the bum will make life easier for everyone.

There are a few games I've played through but haven't finished, not because I don't like them, but because I'm focused on other games I play regularly (like Borderlands 2 or Defiance).

Though I beat Bioshock 1, I've hardly touched Bioshock 2. It's a good game, don't g et me wrong. I just haven't been playing it that much, though I pop it in from time to time.

Another game is Dead Island. Some people like it, some people don't and playing it I can understand both sides. I like it, though, so I'll definitely be trying to beat it (especially considering Riptide recently came out).

Halo 3: ODST also comes to mind. Though still a good game, it's my least favorite of the Halo titles for obvious reasons.

Then there's the Rainbow Six Vegas games. I like them, but the controls make it a slower pace than, say, Call of Duty.
