Hey guys i've recently discovered that is have this serious problem. I love playing RPGS but for the past 2-3 years i've started many popular rpg's but when i reach mid-way or to-end of the game i suddenly lose interest and starts another rpg. I've done this to many good rpgs and think it's becoming sorta a problem now. At the moment i stopped playing EOIII and started Final fantasy: the four warriors of light. I've realized that it's become a problem now as i want to finish EOIII but i don't have the anxiety or will to put on/continue playing the game. Any suggestions as to what i should do? or what is wrong with me?

Nothing is wrong with you, you're just that kind of person. You probably have too many games to play, am I right?

Piracy leads to a lack of drive to complete games, cause you have so much to choose from. When you buy games, you're usually more compelled to beat them, as opposed to getting 30 games for free at one point in time.

I was like that. I think it's the game's fault. For me, I did this with Lost Odyssey on the 360. I love games that last a long time, but the game had no side-quests. It was just boring.

Ah, good old pirate syndrome. I hate it. There's only a few games I end up finishing because of it. Limit your library of games, it will help a lot.

ahhh i see. thanks for the feedback but i've also done this to many games i have for my ps3. Games just bore me when at mid point or end game because there's nothing cool to look forward to at that point in the game. I think Golden Sun DS is gonna fix me rite up

Same problem here. Until I thought the same thing someone else posted above: "Limit your game library".

So up to now, I´m in chapter 7 of MOTHER 3 (which i´m going to finish NO MATTER WHAT)

Just started Earthbound SNES, AND Tales of Symphonia.

Right now i´m between a fast-paced game, like Taiko No tatsujin - Smash Bros Brawl, AND a lower-paced game, like Tales /Mother.

Definitely a pirate thing, a friend of mine has a problem finishing anything on his DS since he uses a flash card.

Personally, I don't have a problem with finishing games. The trick for me is one game at a time per system. For example, I'm playing EOIII on my DS and NOTHING ELSE, Vanquish (just finished Castlevania) on the 360 and NOTHING ELSE, and Kirby's Epic Yarn for the Wii... and nothing else xD.

That way, I won't start a new game on a particular system and forget about the one I was playing before but I still have the option of playing a different game. I needed a break from EOIII after I trucked through the 3rd stratum so I picked up Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. A few days later I was back in the mood for EOIII.

Hope my suggestion helps a bit. Just remember: one game per system. I can't remember the last time I 'haven't' finished a game that I enjoyed. Keep in mind that I don't purchase any current gen games.

I'll bet that it isn't just pirate syndrome, I have a super massive collection (+ 750 GB easy) of games and, aside from my fps A.D.D, I have no problem completing my games.

You probably have to just take a short break and play some other kind of game, very literally not an RPG, since I think you might be getting game fatigue.

That's not necessarily true.

I don't pirate the games on the 360, but most, if not all 360 RPG's are just.....ugh. I play them for a little bit and it's like...who the fuck cares.

You don't have to pirate games to be uninterested in them. RPG's today lack any of the real substance that say...PS2 RPG's had.

I take exception to your 360 RPGs remark- I have had the most fun playing 360 RPGs that I have had with the genre in years. Indeed I would probably make the exact same remark you made about the 360 to PS2 era RPGs.

I have had some fun with 360 RPGs. I didn't like Mass Effect or FFXIII, but I love Oblivion, Fallout, and NieR.

Same here. Its very hard for me. I actually did finish up all the Professor Layton games though, and Phoenix Wright games. As for RPGs I did finish Kingdom Hearts plus did all the extra missions and stuff. I went midpoint in the Zelda Spirit Tracks, and Mario and Luigi Bowsers Inside Story. I got bored with Zelda and I didn't know what to do next in Mario.

I appreciate things more if I don't pay for them.


Because I have found no game that is worth a value higher than $0.


...Actually, I have never seen anything worth more than $0. Stingy bastards, making us pay more than what an item is worth....
