I was looking through the games you love but never finished thread and realized “there are tons of games I have enjoyed I will never finish but on the other hand, I’ve finished many games I didn’t particularly enjoy.”
So my question is this: What are some games you disliked, yet still insisted on playing through to the end? Alternatively, multiplayer games you disliked that you still played tons of. Some examples of my own below:
- Pacman and the Ghostly Adventures: Got in a steam sale one winter break and was in need of a 3D platformer. It’s a bad game, but I gotta have my 3D platformer fix.
- Spyro Enter the Dragonfly: Perhaps this question is unfair when it comes to games from your childhood. It was the only new game I had at the time, good or bad I was going to see it through. Same with Shadow the Hedgehog, Finding Nemo, countless other PS2 games.
- INSIDE: I had to see the ending for myself. Luckily the time commitment was only an afternoon.
- Darkspore: … I don’t know? Sometimes evenings in college it felt easier to play a game I didn’t really like because I didn’t need to be in the right mood to take in something Big and Important. Easier to play Darkspore and not give a shit about anything than to play like, The Witcher 2 and need to take everything in.
EDIT: More regretfully finished games
Aliens: Colonial Marines: Entirely buyers remorse.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands: I play through a lot of co-op games because its one of the ways that I keep up with some of my family and friends. Sometimes that means biting a bullet and playing something I actively dislike. In this case, I played the game as a bargaining chip as long as they promised to at least try Divinity Original Sin 2 when it came out. Wildlands is a trash game. But, D:OS2 is a great game… so net positive?
