I Suck At Finishing Games

This is something that niggles me almost everyday when I log into my PC and look at my Steam Games list....

I've gotten better. After months of procrastination I went back, played and finished Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. I was stuck near the end of the game on the hardened difficulty, try as much as I might I could never get past. So I swallowed my pride and went back to start the game on a lower difficulty setting. I managed to get through the game after a few sessions. Recently, with the aid of My Backloggery, I've been making progress with my unfinished games. Plants Vs Zombies is done, so are the first two Wallace and Gromit episodes. I've also set myself some targets; I'm not going to get any of the LucasArts games off Steam until I've finished the Wallace and Gromit series and the 2nd episode of the new Monkey Island series. My wife and I are having a week's holiday in October at a beach resort, but it will probably involve me playing games on her laptop and something like the Monkey Island remake or The Dig (or maybe something else thatLucasArts will be announcing on Monday).

There's something I've realised after writing this entry. When it comes to videogames, I'm an enthusiast and a fan, but more than anything, I feel I'm a consumer most.

About Alasdair Duncanone of us since 9:17 AM on 10.13.2007

Alasdair Duncan is that bearded, bespectacled Scotsman that covers PC gaming that is not Fraser Brown. A long time Destructoid community member and forum moderator, he covers adventure, puzzle, FPS and all kinds of games on the PC. Watch, as he adds more games to his Steam library with only the vaguest hope of ever playing most of his games.

Alasdair has been gaming since his mother bought a Commodore 64 back in the early 1980's. He adores Deus Ex, GTA Vice City, Team Fortress 2, Borderlands, Super Mario Brothers 3 and all those weird indie titles on Steam.

You can meet Alasdair at places like PAX where he tries to convince people he isn't a) drunk or b) Irish.

Plus he crave attention via the following:
