Games ... that I really really tried, but failed to finish!
« on: August 01, 2011, 03:25:56 AM »
I think this might be more interesting that the lists of games we did finish, of all the games we had, most got dropped through boredom, however on every platform there were awesome games that we tried and tried to finish but just never got there. Heres mine...

Spectrum
Jet Set Willy - no real surprise, played it a lot mainly just to explore.
Gunfright - loved the game, still do, but it is insane on later levels, even then it just loops.
New Zealand Story - takes hours to get to the end, my speccy was not used to such uptimes and usually locked up.
Curse of Sherwood - that bloody marshland with its invisible path.
Golden Axe - my second and last full price game (£9.99 seemed insane at the time) and was determined, but the constant reloading of levels kept my attempts short.

PC
Hostile Waters - The last mission always beat me.
Little Big Adventure - Massive game, still have the saves somewhere, may one day get back to it.

PS3
inFAMOUS - last level on the first city saps my patience, played for countless hours upto that point.

Arcade
Ghouls and Ghosts - even with infinite credit it beats me.

Most notible ones for me are all on the Amiga

GODS - got to the last boss twice, but never beat it  :-[
Premier - 6 levels, got to the end of level 5, but each level took longer to complete, so save option, so if you lost all your lives you had to start again from the every beginning, level 5 was taking over an hour on it's own to complete !!
SWIV - managed around 72% on this, became incredible hard as things went on  :o

C64 - Robocop, still stuck on Level 4 after all these years.

Amiga - Cannon Fodder, Amiga almost went out of the window wth this one. This game has broken me so many times ;D


PC - System Shock 2....but that's only because i got scared and had to switch it off

NES - Mario 3, can't get past the last world

NDS - Super Mario Bros - Stuck on level 8.5 (i think)

SNES - Super Ghouls N Ghosts - I now refuse to play this ;D
SNES - Super Punch Out - The last fighter eludes me.

Dreamcast - Soul Calibre - beating Sophita if in the hands of the mad nurse.
