What game in your favorite series have you still not finished?

Holy shit! A new game in your favorite series it coming out! Oh, man, you put soooooo many hours into the last one! But then, a few days early, you realize you… never actually beat it. How is that possible? It's one of your favorite franchises and there's still stuff left to be done! This happens to us more times than we care to admit, which has us thinking...

What game in your favorite series have you still not finished?

For me? It'd be Pokemon. Yeah, that's right, I haven't caught 'em all. I beat the hell out of some of the old ones, but just never finished Black and White. It was the game that got away, and now it's simply too late to go back. What is your shameful answer? Don't worry, this is a safe place...

What's your example? Be sure to comment with the game, and the reason it slipped through the cracks.

    I am an abhorrent fan of GTA, but sadly never beat Vice City. I've beaten every other game, including Chinatown Wars (one of the best, might I add), but was never able to beat VC. Someday...

    Skyward Sword. I love Zelda, and replay at least two a year. However, SS's motion controls made it more of a chore that anything. Shame.

    I STILL haven't finished Skyward Sword. I know, this makes me a monster.

    Dead Space. Loved the first two, but after the slew of negative feedback deterred me from the 3rd one, i got a different game instead. One day i'll get it... One day...

    DS3 is fun, especially with a friend, just don't expect scares, it's more about waves of enemies
  • Oujisama - October 11, 2013 6:03 p.m.

    Final Fantasy 1, 2, and 3. I've 100% every other game in the series numerous times, but I just can't bring myself to beat the first three games. I mean, honestly...they're just not very good games.

    I cannot beat Pokemon White Version 2 because I refuse to teach my Samurott Surf.
  • mcgronkster - October 11, 2013 2:46 p.m.

    Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles for NES. I never beat it because it's f'ing impossible.

    I'd almost say White/Black, but I have no interest in playing any 5th gen games. Those pokemon are just too bad. I don't care how great the gameplay is. Besides, I've got X tomorrow. Now, I hate to admit it, but... I've never finished: -Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker -Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons -Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia -Any Paper Mario after Paper Mario for N64

    I love the Metal Gear Solid series with my heart and soul. Too bad I've only finished MGS1. Bought 2 for PC but couldn't get it to work. Couldn't find 2 for PS2 Bought 3 for PS2 but after a few days, PS2 broke down. I had still yet to start the game. When my PS2 finally decided to leave me and go to console Heaven, I found MGS2 at the local Game shop the next day...... Never had a PS3 (play friend's) so no MGS4.

    Armored Core: Last Raven I know why I haven't played it... I was playing a marathon of the series and by the time I got to Nexus I was burned out. I've played all the others and I'm finishing beating V right now, but Last Raven was just too much I suppose.
  • rcarrasco121 - October 11, 2013 9:30 a.m.

    Ni No Kuni... And Pokemon White version 2.... The crazy thing was I loved both of these games when I playing them. I don't understand why I never went back to them!!! WHY?!?!?!?!
  • JarkayColt - October 11, 2013 9:13 a.m.

    I legitimately can't think of any game I've bought that I've also never beaten. I did own the original Jak & Daxter on the PS2 that went unbeaten for the longest time because I kept losing interest, mostly because I kept getting lost when searching out all the collectibles. When the HD Collection came out though, I finally finished it. Turns out I actually wasn't that far from the end when I threw the towel in before, which irked me a bit, lawls. I found everything eventually. Similarly, I'd never actually played right the way through the original Rayman until recently (only ever saw the final stage by using codes before, and I used to get stuck many levels before that one anyway).
  • Technomancer - October 11, 2013 8:39 a.m.

    The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. I own over a dozen Zelda games and I've played and beaten each of them multiple times... except for Spirit Tracks.
  • ObliqueZombie - October 11, 2013 7:41 a.m.

    I haven't beaten... Tales of Vesperia, Demon's Souls, or technically Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. I still play them all, it's just that I'm so busy with school, other activities, and other games that is makes it hard to keep up.
  • RonnyLive19881 - October 11, 2013 6:57 a.m.

    I never got the chance to play Ruby and Sapphire. I LOVED Super Mario Sunshine but navigating that blasted boat through the lava stopped me from ever beating... the rage my friends. I just had to declare it beaten lol, that is quite possibly the most broken section of a Nintendo game to ever make it into a release... this is coming from someone that 100%ed both Galaxies lol
  • winner2 - October 11, 2013 7:58 a.m.

    I feel your pain on that boat part, it took me out of it hard before I beat it
  • Luveno - October 11, 2013 6:49 a.m.

    Never finished GTA3 or Vice City. Never finished Final Fantasy 8, 13, 13-2 Never finished Persona 2 - Innocent Sin. I didn't technically finish Persona 1, but I did make it to the final boss and had like a 6 hour stalemate final battle with it. I couldn't kill it and it couldn't kill me. I turned off the PlayStation and called it "beat" anyway. Never finished Mass Effect 3. Never finished Gears of War 3.
  • Xtapolapopotamus - October 11, 2013 6:30 a.m.

    Well, if we're talking MAIN games, then I don't think I have any... If you include off-shoots, then Pokemon Conquest. I bought it launch day, put maybe two hours into it and haven't touched it since. I love Fire Emblem and FF Tactics and SRPG's just fine, but something about Conquest rubbed me the wrong way and I could never get into it.
