Games that feel like busy work

You know those games that look like they can be a lot of fun until you actually play it. Then all of a sudden you lose interest and feels like work to get through it. Yeah, I ran into a few of those games. Games like Star Wars Unleashed and Batman Arkham City are collecting dust on my shelf waiting for me to get interested enough to finish them.

The one game that actually gets me is Fatal Frame 3. I loved Fatal Frame series and you couldn't imagine how bummed I was that Fatal Frame 3 wasn't coming out on Xbox. I wanted to play the 3rd one so bad that I actually got a PlayStation 2. I got a quarter of the way through the game and I just stopped. I guess I hit a point in the game where I didn't know what to do or where to go. I was consistently looking for walkthroughs on the internet. I even tried playing it from the beginning until finally I stopped altogether. Sad that a series I liked turned into tedious busy work.

So what games did you quickly lose interest in?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Final Fantasy 12 - To this day the only FF I never finished. I never really got into it so once I ran into a boss I couldn't beat in a few tries I just stopped.

Legacy of Cain: Soul Reaver - I never knew what to do and where to do it.

Final Fantas XII and Final Fantasy XIII-2. I even finished the pile of shit X-2 (gameplay was actually decent imo) Arkham Asylum (though I enjoyed City).

I don't ever finish a game once I stop having fun. Pointless.

Man yes GTA games. I have never 'finished' a GTA game. I have insane fun until about 3/4's of the way through then get bored of them.

Didn't bother with GTA4 but will get GTA5 .
