Do some people just not finish games?

I'm not claiming to finish every games I've ever played, but there are very few games that I don't finish, unless they are horrible or I just don't like them. I have a younger cousin who just got a 360 because someone gave it to him free since it was broken. I repaired it for him.He has like 4 games, none of which he has beaten except for Skate 3. He borrowed Halo 3 from me 2 weeks ago, and he did beat that. I gave him like 7 original xbox games for free, including Halo and Halo 2. HE hasn't come close to beating any of those, or his other 360 games, and yet the other day he asked to borrow Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit. He brought that back tonight (it is impossible that he has beaten it already) and exchanged it to borrow O.D.S.T. and knowing him, he'll probably bring it back in 2 days to get Resident Evil 5 or something.

Is it because he's a 14 year old with no attention span, or do other gamers do this? It bugs me to no end to not finish games.

But....but you haven't finished MH Tri yet,lol. Anyway, it could be his age, a kid his age either has short attention span, or he wants to play with his friends.

He doesn't usually have much company, so it's probably not your second option.

Nope, I don't always beat them. But sheer numbers are why. I get a lot, and I mean a lot, of games so I just never get around to all of them. Some I get bored of, some I just never play because they've been ruined for me. Perfect example, I've seen AC3's ending two times now and feel no real need to play it. Much of the same with Mass Effect 3.

I don't always finish games. Sometimes I just get tired or bored of them. Something new comes along and I forgot about the old one.

It's probably his attention span. Maybe he was really hyped about playing the games but then once he got stuck or uninterested, he stopped. Kids are like that.

Does it matter now ?

It's more like a subjective opinion. If I think I can beat the game, I would finish it. If not, I don't bother. I'm more like into enjoying of the game itself rather than rushing it to beat.

I'd leave it there as it is I will never ever beat Ninja Gaiden (NES), Mega Man X series (PS2). Probably I need cheat codes to beat Mega Man X series and Ninja Gaiden..

I've probably only finished 5-10% of games I play. My attention span for games is short, always has been. I can be enjoying a game like crazy, but get distracted by others. I want to finish a lot of them, and I keep jumping back to certain ones like Super Mario Sunshine for example.

the 5-10% can probably be boosted if you take into account only games that I liked then it's probably more like 20-30% that I finish.

I finish barely any of my games. I even own some that I haven't even played past the first part yet. According to my Backloggery there's 139 games I still need to finish, but I think it's more than that. I know why, though. I want to play so many of them that I can't decide which one to play, and end up just doing something else. Besides I'm almost always in company of someone so if I did I'd end up playing a multiplayer game.

My brother has never finished a video game before.
In fact, he owns CoD:MW, MW2, and MW3 and has never even started the campaigns on any of them.
