I’ve been a huge Xenosaga fan for a long time (hence my location). I bought Xenosaga III the day it came out (several months ago) and played it through in only a few sittings. I got to the final fight, and just… stopped. I loved the story and the characters so much that I couldn’t bear to see it end. Namco/Monolith was supposed to make Xenosaga a six-title series, but they decided to wrap it up in only three.
I suppose I’ll sit down someday soon and finish it out, but it’s going to be very difficult and I’ll probably need a box of tissues handy.
I also had to push myself to finally finish Final Fantasy X and God of War.
So, what video games were so great that you just didn’t want to beat them?
