Re: Post here when you beat a game. I mean it!
Interesting post, EJ...
Personally, I've never been a completionist, but i have been a 'finisher'... meaning that although i may not get or do 100% of the stuff in a game, I'll guaranteed see credits.
however, i've even broken that habit in recent years. there are just too many games out there (good ones, even) and too many bad developer habits to put up with to commit to finishing every game i start.
i still finish the vast majority of them, just about all, but for those few that piss me off the wrong way, i don't lose any sleep over shelving them or trading them away.
funny that you posted this about Crisis Core... my review should be up soon and based on what you said in your post, i'll be curious to see what you think.
oh, and keeping in on-topic... uh...
i'm 18 hours into The Answer in Persona 3: FES.
sorry, that's all i got.
