@Luigiman200 How could you?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My biggest cases of these are Unchained Blades, and NSMB2. Only bought the latter because of Coin Rush and the speed run aspect.

Very rarely.
2 notable cases for me are...

Crazy Taxi where I played it twice and just completely forgot about it.

And in a worse case Sonic Heroes, I just can't stand to play it for more than 3 minutes before I just quit and turn it off.

Nope. If I bought a game, I'm playing it when I get home no matter what. :P

I buy games, play them a few times, and then never play them again. Although I do plan to play through and at least try to beat all of them.

This is my forum signature. Woo hoo!

No. That would be a huge waste of money.

Shockingly yes, but not on purpose though. I just can't get enough free time on my hands to play them.

Only thing I've ever bought I never play is Rytmik Retrobits. But that's more of an app...

I don't buy them and than NEVER play them, but if I have a lot of other games on the go I'll shelve the game I bought until I've beaten one or two other games so I don't get a massive backlog (It's already bad enough as is)

Yeah, although I don't mean to usually. If I pick up a game I want to give a try before my wanted ones come along, sometimes I get busy and don't get a chance to right away. When that game on my wanted list comes out, the one I didn't get to try kind of fades away for a while. I eventually get around to it though, even if a long while, so it's not entirely wasted.

The only game I intended to play was Fatal Frame 2: Crimson Butterfly but never got around to it. I don't know why...I guess I bought too many games that day and lost interest. Everything else I played at least once.

Dude, give it a shot! It's a pretty good horror game.

Oh, I still intend to play it eventually but I just don't have the interest right now.

Actually I do remember that I only put a couple of hours into Excitebots despite immediately enjoying it much more than Excitetruck. I mean I only played it twice because once was right before the previous Wii died and afterwards I just...forgot about it. I'm not even sure why honestly.

I buy games to play, just like everyone else, but I also collect. There are games I've bought that I've beat, and games that I play for a little bit to get a taste of that game and add it to my collection, and games I physically can't play because I buy them for systems I don't even own yet. To sum it up, I am happy with my purchase, whether I actually play it or not.

On Steam, yes. And that's because I payed less money so I don't feel as obligated to play them. And also sometimes virtual console games, but you have to be in the right mood to want to play those, at least for me. Everything else is pretty much guaranteed that I play, although I still haven't beaten Paper Mario Sticker Star yet...I should get to that :3

This question could be rephrased as "Do you have Steam?"
Of course I'll get around to beating the games eventually though. I don't buy games that I don't intend to play.

Yeah this sums it up pretty well.

Been thinking lately, that Shulk would actually make a really good Smash Bros. character. (Still would rather have King K. Rool though)
