My Shelf of Shame

Obviously I have not had time to post much lately. I haven't had time to do much of anything, really — except work, that is — let alone gaming.

(notes: "finished" does not necessarily mean completed.  for example, finishing Super Mario Galaxy means that i reached and defeated the final boss, and saw the end credits, but not necessarily with all 120 stars.  also, games that were purchased without the intention of playing to completion, such as Saints Row 2, and games purchased as party games, such as LEGO Rock Band, are not counted as part of this list.)

  1. You should finish Mirror's Edge. It is teh good.

    Which of the unfinished ones did you stop playing just because you realized... they suck?

    Interesting idea. I'll definitely have to re-post this to my LiveJounral. Who knows, maybe it'll make it as far as a Facebook meme.
