    Dead Space - I don't deal well with jump scares. First few minutes had me alt-f4-nope out of there!

    TES: Oblivion / Fallout New Vegas / Fallout 4 - I got bored with the gameplay/story in general. Loved Skyrim funnily enough.

    Star Wars: Dark Forces / Dark Forces 2 / Mysteries of the Sith - I picked these up on sale a decade after originally getting Jedi Knight and Jedi Academy. Couldn't deal with how clunky they felt by comparison.

    Dishonored - Liked the game, but found trying to keep up a non-lethal playthrough tedious. Felt that Deus Ex: HR was more entertaining on that front.


    There's a lot more unfinished games, but I'm not willing to say I've given up on them yet!

    Skyrim, played around 40hrs of it enjoyed it but just went, that's me :D

    Thinking of buying it in VR as I know there's loads to it.

    *jams tongue in cheek*

    Oh shut up FC2 was the best game ever. I mean, spending an hour trying to hunt down a caravan before fruitlessly chasing it in circles shooting at it.

    And as if hunting for the diamonds wasn't just the best thing in a game ever.

    *removes tongue from cheek*

    Yeah, it was an awful game. Shame, because it was absolutely gorgeous and had one of the best weapons I've ever had the pleasure of handling in a game. I refer of course to the poison dart sniper rifle, where you could prop yourself just out of sight/range of an entire village and then because it was silent literally take out every one alive without even setting a foot close. I think if it were not for the couple of very rare glimmers of hope I wouldn't hate it as much as I do. You know? if it were all complete dog toffee I would have an easier time accepting it.

    Mad Max. Wanted to like it. But Enjoyed Mafia 3 more. I think it was the music (or lack of it).

    There was an overhaul mod that fixed a lot of the crap and made it finally worth playing.

    I agree but I like Dishonored. Gave up trying to do it non-lethal and just always end up going in full assault.

    DayZ Standalone. With noting to do all the KOS and hours of running its just boring as hell. I don't think Beta will save it really feels like a dead horse still being whipped now

    Thought I had commented here, but obviously not!

    Far Cry 2: See comments above.

    Far Cry 4: Thing is, Far Cry 4 is a good game - it's just that I've played Far Cry 3 and it's more of the same thing, albeit with slightly nicer graphics and more stuff. Wish I'd played 4 first TBH.

    Fallout 4: See Far Cry 4.

    Have given up on Warhammer Vermintide - no fun if you're not the mage (IMHO).

    Close to giving up on Squad - have yet to have a fun game experience with this one!

    Quite a few... just the metaphorical tip:

    Project Sylpheed - It just got too damn difficult for my casual-gamer-self, and there's a mission I couldn't get past.

    Bayonetta - Progress slowed RIGHT down late in the game. When a game turns into a grind, I normally take a break. in this case, I never went back.

    Bioshock - I started this twice, and never got beyond an hour in before something better came up.

    Alien Isolation - I was SO looking forward to this, then never unwrapped it and gave it to my baby brother when I sold the X360.

    GTA 3/4/5 - I tried them all, and disliked them all. No biggie here, really.

    Twice I tried to get through Alien Isolation but I found it really offered nothing but boredom.

    FTL - I'd heard such good things about this regarding it's longevity, but I just could not get into it in the slightest.

    The Witcher 1/2/3 - I bought them one at a time when they were on sale, and I just kept hoping they'd get better. Witcher 3 is certainly the best of the bunch, but I still can't get into the lore aspect at all.

    Destiny 2 - I've gave it a fair few hours being about 5 and it just bores the absolute crap out of me.

    Witcher 3 - I loved Witcher 1 and 2 and have fond memories do both, but just didn't get into Witcher 3 and trying it on a stop/start basis several times just killed it for me.

    Portal - Yes I know, puzzle games aren't for me, sorry!

    Up to a few weeks ago I agreed with this I played the first couple of levels and thought "is that it?". But while looking for some games I could play with my daughter I remembered this was in my Steam library, so I reinstalled it and we've had a good time going through it.

    Games I've definitely not got into:
    Starcraft - I still love RTS games, but much prefer C&C and TA lines.
    Dead Space - couldn't work the controls very well to get away on the first level...
    Bioshock - nice to look at but just didn't catch with me.

    i gave up on endless space 1 - couldnt figure out what the hell to research and when.

    also stopped playing the evil within and dark souls. dark souls was just infuriatingly difficult and evil within i just kinda stopped playing.

    want to know something spooky? my name is isaac and when i played dead space years ago (protagonist name is isaac) at the time my girlfriends name was nicola.

    it was like the game was talking to me
