Most of the time I play a game until I get bored / another game attracts me more. It has taken me 6 periods and 3 years to complete FFX, 5 periods and 1,5 years for TES V: Skyrim, for example. I do complete every game I purchase, unless it is absolutely horrible/repeating(Mass Effect imo, not my game, and Pokemon Conquest because after the story the only thing you do is repeating the same campaign)

I usually dedicate an immense amount of time to completing a game. It only took me a few days to complete Dragonball Xenoverse's main story and two days to finish Kid Icarus Uprising. The point is if it interests me enough, and the story is gripping enough, I will finish it earlier than most 100%!

Yes, though if it's a Metroid, I'll try to complete it fully. If it's a Dragon Quest, I'll go until I beat the post-story dungeon boss and maybe a few other miscellaneous things if it has them.

If it's fun and engaging then i'll finish. Though with work and life it's getting harder to finish games, especially cause i like RPGs and those are usually pretty lengthy. So i have a few unbeaten ones.

I usually finish the main campaign of most games more than I don't.  And on the other hand, I almost never 100% a game.  Too many collectibles normally.

that really depends on what game I have to play really. Most of my games right now are more open-world, or based on creativity (Spore, Sims 3, Zoo Tycoon 2, that sort of thing)

I beat the main quest of most games I play, unless they're too difficult, boring, or awful (though awful can be a whole different kind of fun)

I always try to finish it.  Unfortunately, I'm just not a very good gamer so I have a poor track record of actually making it.  Like, one day if I'm very lucky, I'll maybe get to the Mother Brain section of Metroid.  Or get to a fight with Dr. Wily or Bowser/King Koopa, that sort of thing.

I typically finish every game I get and attempt to 100% them all too....if they're not stupidly difficult to achieve

Most of the time I don't.  I play a metric shit ton of games.  For most I get a general feel for the game and how the mechanics work on a high concept level then move on to the next one.  Games I continue to play are games that I enjoy playing.  Games I finish I really like.

If I get a game, I'm pretty certain I'll finish it, coz I'll be trying to 100% as much as possible.

I tend to finish most games I buy, when I was younger I got games as gifts from older relatives who honestly had no clue what games I even liked so they'd buy those games you'd see at a kinney drugs store on the 3 dollar rack and I don't ever touch those. I thanked them and really appreciated the thought but I just can't bring myself to play a game that I have no prior knowledge of

THere are some games I own that I cannot fucking beat the final boss no matter what I do. It frustrates me to no end. I have a list that I stopped updating of Games I own but haven't Beaten.

Depends on how much I like it. And since I usually only buy games that interest me, I beat most of them. I think there's only 2 or 3 that I bought/own that I didn't beat.

More often then not I try to beat the game(As in get the ending of the game, get the end game credit sequence, and possibly get any true/post game ending.). Unless I don't like/care for the game.

Depends on the title I usually leave some games unfinished these days, I just don't get as much time as use to unless its a really solid one then I usually do some large binging sessions (instead of well... sleeping). Otherwise it gets backlogged and never sees the light of day.

All achievements? Only MW2 and Far Cry 3. Unbeaten story lines? Dark Souls, but I am close to that one.

Also lvl 92 on BF4. SO HAPPY ABOUT THAT!!!!!

Depends on your definition of "beat." I'll 100% a game sometimes, but only if it's worth it, say, it unlocks some sort of "true ending" or "real final boss." With most games I just go for the goal (so in other words, say I were playing Mario Galaxy, I'd defeat the final boss, but I wouldn't go for all 120 stars in the game). The difficulty and my overall enjoyment of the game also weighs a factor. If the game is slow and tedious, I'll play until I tire of it. Though most games I pick up I do enjoy quite a bit (because I know what I like in a video game and so I know how to find video games I like) and wind up beating.
