For me, the question need to be asked backwards. There arent many games i have NOT played. I playing games since i was 11 on an amiga 500. Now 22years later iam still playing. Lately its more TBS and RPG that makes me tick.
So lets say i played around 230 different titles?

no iam not an addict :shock:

Wheew, what a cuestion.

The thing is i've been playing PC games since 1992, played tons of games but finished small portion of those. And what comes to those i've finished, i'm a fanatic. :mrgreen: Well, not a fanatic, but an addict, almost. Nah, i just enjoy wasting time with good games.

I go retro mostly, to list a few i've been though so far...

wolfenstein3D
Quake
Quake II
Doom
Doom II
Raptor - Call of the shadows
Dune II
Command & Concuer
Red Alert
Space quests series, all but 7th..
enormous amount of HOMM2 & HOMM3
Heretic
Hexen
Hexen II & Portal of Praevus
Descent
Lot of Steel Panther series & Panzer general
Barbarian (Anybody remember this relic?)
Death Rally
Assault Trooper
Endless hours of Slicks 'n' Slide
And heck of a stack of games i don't remember at the moment...

Newer games... hmm.. Fallout3.
Eschalon Book I, almost, just the final few things i haven't been through yet, i'm too eager to try new characters all the time. :D

My problem with actually finishing games is that i usually move quite fast on other games and with the best few i spend endless hours.

To the CRPG genre i'm quite new. Eschalon is the game which blew my mind totally to true rgp games. I have always enjoyed games with rpg elements... For example Korax project, Hexen with slight rpg feel and HOMM series.

I have never not finished a game I started playing mostly because i am very selective of what i start playing, one of the reasons I will never play WoW, there is no END!

In no particular order

Double Dragon (on gameboy)

The Guardian Legend
Marathon Infinity
Myth II
Max Payne
Red Steel 2

Realmz
Warlords (the black and white one on MAC)

Ur-Quan Masters

Ikari Warriors
Lufia
Champions of Norrath

This list is of course very incomplete, but I forget.

I am another of those old farts who has been playing games for a long time. I go back to the 1970s, and probably the first game I finished was Adventure on the Atari 2600.

During my teenage years, when I played games regularly on the Atari 800, I finished the first four games of the Ultima series, many of the Infocom games, including the Zork and Enchanter series, Wizard's Crown, Realm of Impossibility, M.U.L.E., and many others that I'm forgetting right now.

Since then, I have finished more of the games in the Ultima series - V, VI, VII, Underworld I and II, Savage Empire, and Martian Dreams. (I probably won't finish Ultima VIII and won't play Ultima IX; they have too many problems.) I have also finished more of the Infocom games and some other text adventures. I have finished some of Spiderweb's games (Avernum: Escape from the Pit and the first two of the Avadon series). I have also completed Avernum 4, 5, and 6, but I used cheats to make the repetitive and long battles go more quickly, so they don't entirely count. I have finished all three Eschalon games. Aside from these, there are plenty of others that I'm not thinking of at the moment.

Oh, hell, this isn't gonna take some thinking. (Note, though: I have no consoles, though I know it means I'm missing out... and including the ones I played as a kid would be insane):

Alphabetical Order, will probably forget some:

ONES I'VE FINISHED:
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Arcanum (STARS!)
Avenum IV, Avernum V (twice)
Dear Esther
Diablo II
Dragon Age (A second time only partway through)
Dreamfall
Eschalon (twice), Eschalon II (twice)
Geneforge III (maybe four times... seriously), Geneforge IV (twice)
Jade Empire (STARS!)
The Longest Adventure (STARS!)
Mass Effect 2
Nethergate
Neverwinter Nights
Neverwinter Nights 2
Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayor (STARS!)
(NWN2 mods)
Planescape: Torment (STARS!)
Septerra Core (lots of serious problems)
Syberia
Syberia II
To the Moon
Vampire: Bloodlines (Once all the way through, several times partway through)
The Witcher (STARS!)
The Witcher 2 (twice) (STARS!)

ONES I'VE PLAYED ONLY PARTWAY THROUGH:
Avernum VI
Baldur's Gate (got bored)
Diablo
Dungeon Keeper 2
Longest Journey or the Syberia series, these puzzles game-stopping puzzles don't make logical sense... and their lockpicking puzzle? I was lucky I didn't have a stroke)
Pathologic (fascinating, but the story isn't totally rivetting (well, maybe I haven't played it with the right mindset) and the rendering is difficult to get past in this particular case... I know that sounds bad) (Although... there're some really interesting lines (due to non-stellar translation, I'm guessing) and the opening sequence is absolutely extraordinary... in my opinion, this game has the best opening sequence of any game I've every played.)
Penumbra: Overture
Sanitorium
Shadows of Destiny
Still Life II (annoying as hell... I got most of the way through but gave up at this insane puzzle... unlike, say, The Temple of Elemental Evil (Pretty, nice music, but tough to the point of annoying (only two spells and you forget them immediately, and have to limp back to town all but dead, having defeated nothing? I suppose this is supposed to be "D&D rules" or whatever, but I always thought those rules were idiotic. The vast majority of CRPG's have been adapting them more more sensibly, in my opinion... maybe just me)
The Whispered World
Zork: Grand Inquisitor
(and a bunch of free RPGMaker games)

ONES I'VE ONLY STARTED:
Divine Divinity (I find it hard to get past its similarity to Diablo)
Divinity II (Ugh, I'm sorry I bought it)
Certainty: a character-driven, literary, turn-based mini-CRPG in which Vasek, legendary "Wandering Philosopher", seeks certainties in a cryptically insular, organic, critically layered city.
