Games you abandoned

This is a very rare thing for me as I am often grimly determined to play through each purchase to the bitter end (normally without cheating too), but there are some games that were just too much of a challenge to my time with little reward - the first few I can remember are:
Hellgate: London - became dull and repetitive, cheated my way to the end and forget exactly what happened; a shame as it didn't start off too bad...
Doom3 - rubbish; very pretty and all that - but the gameplay was dated and the entire switching between flashlight and gun was annoying - got bored, cheated, finished, felt empty inside.
Okami - I feel guilty about this one, it was perhaps the last game I bought on the PS2, but was soon surpassed by playing retro titles on the XBox Live Arcade; so there you go: I turned down gaming innovation for the SAME GAMES that I'd bought years ago on a newer system. Anyway, it looked and played nicely enough, it was just that the PS2 got shunted out of the way and I never really went back.
Add to this list any number of impossibly hard Amstrad games, and also a large portion of Amiga titles - in fact, finishing games only became a regular thing with the PSOne and advent of the quick-save on the PC.

One game that I love is Tir Na Nog. Maybe to millions of people, it would be alot more than boring, but it ain't to me, I love it, as long as you have a sense of direction(by using the compass), then it is fun

Also, quite often, the games that I get bored of, I do play every now and again. On ps2, f1 2004 game started boring me, that I was going to give it to a club that go to, but I kept forgetting, but I decided to play it again and really had fun
