    I've had my Wii since around the time it was released. The first game I bought for it was The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and I STILL haven't finished it. I usually have to spend a good day of just figuring out where I left off in the stupid game.

    However, I just can't commit myself to finish a single Grand Theft Auto game. I guess it's because there's SO much to do in side missions that i just get bored and decide to go kill some people or see how many cars i can blow up. At least with GTA: IV, people continually bug you to do something, so that kind of keeps me focused. Kind of.

    I recently downloaded and installed DOSBox because I have a $10 Babbages game that a friend and I committed 13 hrs of non-stop game time to try and beat the stupid thing. We never could figure it out and it's been in the back of my head since.

    For anyone who's been a geek for long enough, Angband/Nethack is a very likely answer.

    Played and finished Rogue, several times, which was like the grandfather to NetHack. That game was great.

    i finished fallout3. that game did take forever. gta iv was a different story. i got to a little over half complete, and i decided to do a little spring cleaning on my ps3, and i deleted the wrong user name. now every time i log on to play multiplayer, im greeted with the very first mission, "cousins bellic". how depressing.

    god, nothing worse than starting over with that game. it's hard enough to pick up a new one, just to start from the beginning.

    i refuse to pick up San Andreas again, just because of having to do all of those tags before you can really play the game.

    dont i know it. once i thought about starting over, but just the thought of all those taxi-type missions drove me away from that idea. "drive me here", "pick up so and so"... um, no. instead, i call up a buddy of mine, tell him to get online, and we grab helicopters and sit on rooftops with rocket launchers until were 5 or six star, then steal a swat van and take off. that never gets old :icon_ devil:

    speaking of, has anyone else noticed the multiplayer glitch where once you get out of a helicopter, you automatically are fully stocked with rocket launchers?

    Gosh, I don't think I've turned my 360 or Wii on since I got my droid. Between that and newly installed Windows 7 64bit/2 additional gigs of ram/new Canon all in one printer, I've really not had the time. Not to mention this forum, work and all my honeydos.
    Maybe I'll fire it up this evening maybe play a little Splinter Cell which I've been stuck trying to find the captain of the dam boat.
