    Since pirating (or backing up, whichever you prefer) is easy coz of the interwebs, we tend to get bored easily with our "downloaded games" esspecially with the DS.
    There was a time where i didn't even play a game for more than 1 hour before it got replaced.

    but there's bound to be at least one game you guys played to the end.

    for me it was,
    DS: PW series, and Hotel Dusk
    Xbox360: Red Dead Redemption. soo fuucking good.


    and thast all i could remember.

    other games were either too hard or too easy taht i just gave up, and downloaded another batch.

    so, whats yours?

    I don't really pirate much games these days, but I tend to pirate things from big companies, such as Activision and Nintendo. (Though I can make exceptions if they are good deals. For example, Metroid prime trilogy)

    The very thought of giving Bobby Kotick more money makes me sick.

    Well the only consoles I have pirated on were my DS and PS2. I wouldn't count the isos for PSX I've used in emulators because I previously owned those games. With the PS2 I never experienced pirate's syndrome for some reason (probably because I used to not have the speed to download them and relied on ripping friends games when I didn't wanna buy them).

    DS: The Daigasso Band Brothers series kept me entertained for quite a while. Also, Castlevaina Dawn of Sorrow. The other Castlevania games weren't as good, and I remember Order of Ecclesia being too difficult.

    Mario Kart DS is another great game that I played a lot.

    I have a ton of other DS games that I put down after an hour or so, not because they were bad, but for some feeling of being jaded or something.

    DS : PW series, Blue Dragon - Awakened Shadow, Spirit Tracks, Tales of Innocence, Trauma Center 1 & 2 (did not finish them, besause I had some freezing issues at the last operation), Pokemon games, The World Ends With You, Time Hollow, and that's pretty much all I think.

    Wii : Muramasa (one of the best Wii games ever), Monster Hunter Tri, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Trauma Center (the second one)

    In fact, even when I buy games, I don't finish them. I get bored easily and I was really busy with school these days. I only finish games that I find REALLY interesting.

    Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, Dragon Quest IV, Dragon Quest V, and Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker. I'm not sure if I've reached the end credits on any other game I've pirated on my DS. Dragon Quest IX may be entered into this list in a few days though.

    I don't suffer from Pirate's Syndrome. I prefer Steam Syndrome.

    I have backlog of over 60 games.

    One Steam game that I didn't expect to be fun was Defense Grid: The Awakening.

    No More Heroes, GTA Chinatown wars, and the biggest monster hunter tri. I thought i would need to buy mh3 to give it the time it deserves.....100 hours in. I need no motivation besides that great gameplay.


    Edit: great topic idea btw. I was just thinking about this.

    Let's see.....I know I beat:

    On the DS:

    Eragon DS. Wish we had more games like that (game engine), using a newer SDK of course.

    I beat Castlevania DoS and PoR. But for some reason, I couldn't get into OoE.

    I beat Spiderman Web of Shadows.....fun game.

    Nanostray 1+2

    Top Gun....I liked that game, despite its faults.

    Both Pirates of the Caribbean games.

    Sonic Rush

    Asphalt GT 1 + 2

    Speed Racer

    Lego SW Complete Saga

    Don King Boxing

    Star Wars Clone Wars and Force Unleashed.



    On the PC:

    Flatout 2
    Batman Arkham Asylum
    X-Men: Wolverine
    Devil May Cry 4
    Psychonauts

    Man! I know there a lot of games I beat, but "pirate's syndrome" (and 30+ years of gaming) has given me "video game Alzheimer's" and I can't rem 90% of the games I've played anymore. I've played so many video games over the years......it all becomes a jumble. But those are some I remember. I only have a DS and PC to game with.

    Ah, good old pirating syndrome.

    Well, there's some games I will pick up once and never play again, games I will pick up a few times then never play again, and games I beat.

    Prince of Persia: TFS for the Wii I didn't complete yet but it sure beat the syndrome. That game was surprisingly good.

    Super Mario Galaxy 2 of course.

    All my Xbox 360 games since A) I buy all my 360 games and B) I like Achievements. Pirating syndrome would be a goner if we had an achievement system on Wii/DS.

    Not sure if there's anything on my DS in months that has beaten the syndrome.

    Ah! That was such a good game when I was 10/11! It was the first game I played on my PS2, I had a 5 star park that took me about two months to finish! [​IMG]

    IMHO, if you drop a game, it's mainly because it's bad and/or you don't like it.

    The only thing the pirate's syndrome lets you do, it's that when you don't like a game, you can switch it immediately with another. Instead, when you've bought it, you tend to force yourself to finish it just because you've paid good monies for it [​IMG]

    On the DS the only games which didn't make me suffer of the "Pirate's Syndrome" were the PW series and a few select others. I remember playing them non-stop 'till I finished them! Really good games [​IMG]
