I've dug myself a hole, here:

Current MOST WANTED games of the now and foreseeable future:

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
Tactics Ogre
The Witcher 2
Total War: Shogun 2

Those are going to cost 8 completions, but I'm in 3 in the hole, so I have to finish 11 games! Here are the ones I think I am nearest or most motivated to finishing off:

Bayonetta (about half done)
Fallout (motivated)
Dawn of War II (motivated)
Assassin's Creed II (haven't yet begun, but motivated)
Hitman: Blood Money (maybe 1/4 done, probably not too long)
Poker Night at the Inventory (I'll be done when I've won enough/all items and such)
Demon's Souls (somewhere like 1/4 done, but long & hard)
Titan Quest (somewhere near the beginning)
STALKER (somewhere near the beginning)
Halo: Reach (borrowed, shouldn't be too long)
Bioshock 2 (borrowed, shouldn't be too long)
Batman: Arkham Asylum (borrowed, shouldn't be too long)

That's 12 games that I could finish in a reasonable amount of time, and that are at least on my Radar of Shame.

I got to get off work and go get to work!

As Beavis would have said, "Heh, heh, he said long and hard, heh, heh...."

Personally, I would recommend knocking off the three games that you have on loan from friends. Definitely Reach first since that is a great game and your buddy may want it back soon to partake in some online teabagging action.

That's my 2 cents. My next completion should be Majin but now I am a bit lost since I had to start back-tracking. Either that game needs an in-game map or I just don't know how to access it. I suppose that's what game manuals are for...

Yeah, I really need to play those, since I've had them for months now! It's just this weird paradox of not wanting to play these games I know are good.

Maybe I'll take a run at one of them soon.

Oh shit! I forgot about Tactics Ogre! Fuck! 11 games I have to finish!

Majin does have an in-game map, I'm just stupid.

By the way, have you noticed that they recently released a GTAIV Complete edition for PS3 and 360 for $40? It includes the original game + the 2 big DLC packs, apparently all on disc. I've never completed a single GTA game, yet I own all the major console releases except this one. The PS3 edition is on sale this weekend for $29.99 which is very tempting. That is a hell of a lot of game for that price.

I can almost justify buying it but I know I'll probably never get around to playing it.

That is a really good deal, provided you play it and like it. I finished IV, but haven't really wanted to play anymore in that engine and city.
