Oh, even with all my game playing history, last night I did something that is pretty rare… I actually completed a game! I finished The Walking Dead. I’m still of the opinion that its an interesting game and good to play through. There’s a season 2 coming eventually… and that’ll be high on my shopping list in the future.
But actually getting the whole way through a game is pretty rare for me. In the dozens (its not that high a number even) that I’ve played, I wonder if I could list all the ones I’ve completed…..
- Wolfenstein 3D – one of the very early FPS, that was so fun, do you know you can get it for the iPhone now. I used to have a separate boot choice in order to get enough RAM to play it!
- F-19 Stealth Fighter (Microprose) – The sneaky man’s flight simulator.
- MechWarrior 2, 3 and 4 (and expacs etc)
- MechCommander 1 (can’t remember if I did finish 2)
- Tenchu Stealth Assassins (but not 2) – loved the stealthy secret side, 2 had very tricky bosses. Haven’t really found a game that comes close, but love to hear suggestions
- Colin Mcrae Rally 1 & 2 – before bikes, I loved Rally cars (still do)
- Tomb Raider (but haven’t finished the rest ever) – bought out of curiousity many years ago and probably my favourite franchise after Battletech
- Ghost Recon 1 (and Island Storm and Desert Siege) – my favourite FPS, loved playing this co-op. I have started GR2 and recently picked up the latest one, Future Soldier
- Duke Nukem (Time to Kill)
- Call of Duty 4
- The Walking Dead
Now that’s not a long list to cover over 20+ years of gaming, and there’s a bunch of years before that I can’t remember as its too far back (anything before about year 11 I don’t remember) but I don’t think I finished much.
Anyone else have such a small list of completed games? Some people do that many in a few months! What might have happened without 5 years of WoW in there??
