    What are some DS games you have that you made it pretty far in, but for one reason or another you never completed.

    Pokemon Diamond (I got past the legendary pokemon and haven't played since, I played it like crazy when it came out and then it just fizzled)

    Mario & Luigi Partners in Time (I didn't even play the game for 4 or 5 months after I bought it and when I did I made it pretty far but then...I just went on to something else)

    Trauma Center (If my ds wants to live I need to stay away from that game for awhile)

    Naruto Path of the Ninja (I made it to the Zabuza saga and haven't been back, i'll probably attack this again when I have some downtime)

    I never beat Trauma Center, and I don't know if I'll beat DQH:J - got to Dr. Snap, don't feel like grinding just to beat him

    Theres lots, but I can only remember dragon quest rocket slime, phoenix wright (I know, I should be shot), and almost every ds game worth playing. Actually, I've beaten less than three games. Maybe only two.

    The very nature of flash cards make it so its harder to finish games. If I spend my own hard earned cash on a game, I know I'll take the time to get through it even if I'm not having that much fun towards the end. Flash cards encourage gaming ADD. If you get bored, just switch it.

    Right now, Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, as it's the only DS game I own. [​IMG] I'm saving it for a rainy day though, perhaps for when the power goes out.

    As for games in general I need to beat, well there's...

    Final Fantasy X-2; I'm on the final boss and I can beat him, I just took a hiatus and have been putting it off.

    Final Fantasy XII; I always have a craving to play this, but I'm stuck in a really tough area, so I never do.

    Sonic Adventure 2: Battle; I just can't beat the final level.

    Sonic Heroes; I hate this game. I HATE IT. I own it, I should beat it... but I never will because I hate it.

    Dragon Quest VIII; I bought this one, played it for a few hours, realized I was too far to save or heal, died, and had to start over again. I pretty much said the hell with this and never touched it again.

    Metroid Prime; I'll probably never beat this one, I can't muster up enough interest.

    Super Mario Galaxy; I love it. This one is so fun that I don't want the fun to end, so I've been putting off playing it.

    Also currently playing Super Mario Galaxy (bought the game) and im trying to take it slow so i don't go overboard and finish it really quick, but the temptation is like huge lol. I am trying to enjoy it as much as possible, the game is amazing.

    I've got a little folder "Unfinished Business" for games like these!
    Contact, Diddy Kong Racing, Tingles Rosy Rupeeland, Lunar Knights, Rune Factory, Viewtiful Joe, and Wario Master of Disguise!
    I actually got real close to the end of each of these games!
    But the more I play it, the more the flaws become obvious: difficulty, repetitive gameplay, lack of scenario twists...

    For some games I just overlook it and beat it 100%. Actually almost all of them... hell I even completed Rockman Star Force 100% though I hated the Battle Network series!!).

    For others, I don't know why I can't and just put it away a few months... Well, I'll come back to them eventually!
