i have different systems, with too much games that i have not yet touched (or games that i've tested for about 30m, just to see 'what it is'), problem is i cannot stop snapping up games here and there :twisted:

Lots, thought 98% of them I did start at least a save just to check if they worked.

Some examples of games I haven't played or played only until the first save opportunity:

Zelda Oracle of Ages
Dark Cloud 1
Dark Cloud 2
Odin Sphere
Disgaea 2
Mana Khemia 2
Metal Gear Solid Subsistence (I did play a decent chunk of the MSX games though)
Atelier Iris Eternal Mana

God of War III. Still in its wrapper and still pining for me to play it. I bought it for a tenner from Currys back in January, but with Skyrim eating into all my game time, I predict it will still be in its wrapper when January 2012 has gone.

With Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim coming as Chrimbo prezzies, This list will not be getting any shorter for quite some time. :shock:

Many, many, many. Skyrim and Skyword Sword are real times sinks so after those will give Demon's Souls a proper play.
Had Resident Evil 5 for ever and finally playing that too.
- Have about 75 Dreamcast games still to play
- 6 or 7 Jag games
30 or so very cheap PS3 games (example: Dark Void), I lend out a few games to people also so someone I'll get some use out of them.

PS2 - Persona 3 FES, Persona 4, Shin Megami Tensei Lucifer's Call, Valkyrie Profile 2

DS - Dragon Quest: Chapters of the Chosen, Dragon Quest: Hand of the Heavenly Bride, Final Fantasy XII Revenant Wings, Final Fantasy 4 Heroes of Light, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, Hoshigami

Xbox 360 - Tales of Vesperia

PSP - Tales of Eternia, Breath of Fire III

Wii - Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

I do like RPG's but its finding the time to give them my full attention between all the other stuff that comes out. Online Multiplayer takes up a lot of my time and i play a lot of Super Street Fighter IV. All of the above games cost me less than a tenner, some new. I'm also trying to get through so many games before i go on to another. There are too many games out there... This lot above would probably keep my going for a few years alone!

Skyrim is on the Xmas list... Oh Dear

I always play unsealed games (just to test if they work) but the ones I have sitting about sealed are:

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (Gamecube, had it sitting around sealed since it originally got released in 2004/5!)
Carol Vorderman's Sudoku (PS2)
Halo Reach (360)
Battle Fantasia (360)

Wouldn't know where to start...literally hundreds. :oops: I keep buying bloody PS2 games because they're cheap and just end up putting them in my cupboard...some of which will probably never see daylight again.

Criminal neglect, i know. I'm a hoarder, what can i say?
