    With the advent of emulation I've found myself becoming increasingly overwhelmed by the number of games I'd "Like to play". Sadly, I rarely complete a game since I spread my interests thin between games. I'm curious as to what are your game playing habits? As in, do you complete games on a regular basis (if you do, how do you keep yourself from starting other games) or do you find yourself overwhelmed by the number of games that you "want to play"?

    I'm all over the map with games. I play a little of this and a little of that, bouncing from game to game like a super ball, never really finishing most games.

    I figure if I never actually finish a game, I will still have it to play later when the tidal wave of releases slows down. [​IMG]

    Since I play like 20 hours on Fri-Sunday period the wave of games is not too fast =P
    Some games never end though, I only beat those a few times only...

    When I'm bored, I jump around from game to game. However, I usaully try to stick with one game at a time.

    Same here, kind of, I hardly ever finish games (except for those that engross me to the point that the only time I stop playing is when there's a powercut/DS runs out of battery) without going from game to game and going back and forth (often forgetting about many along the way).

    Over there.
    I try to finish games, and then get distracted by new games. So I just get save files if there are too many games to play. Short attention span.

    Half the games I dl I play once, then delete and they just stay on my computer. The other half I play to completion or near completion. If I don't like it, I just delete it.
