    Does Shadow of the Colossus count? They originally wanted like 48 Colossi or something then it was cut to 24 and they still only managed to work in 16.

    Any game that you see as unfinished counts because who would have a right to call a game finished that you see as unfinished? It's not like there is a definition of unfinished games out there. So basically every game is finished AND unfinished at the same time.

    No I am not on drugs why are you looking at me like that?

    I mean, yeah, that's fair. Most games had bigger scopes than they ever turn out to be. I guess the only "finished" games were ones that started with very small scopes and came out with more than what was ever expected even by the creators. Likely small projects like indie titles with realistic goals.
    That's you looking at you like that. I'm not here. Drink some water, eat a grapefruit.

    The first half of Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is really good.

    The first Soul Reaver was gutted.

    Don't debate Alec guys. He's just a dick. He gets off on it. He likely fucked someone right after that post.

    Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones.

    It's an adaptation of the Call of Cthulhu tabletop to the CRPG genre, and it's so fucking good. However devs didn't get enough fundings and made the decision to end the game with a cliffhanger and expand on future installments/DLC.

    This was a controversial move but worth it. The game has amazing writing and quest design.

    It doesn't end on a cliffhanger relevant to the main quest and there are side quests that are literally unfinished as well. I understand why they did what they did. Its how they went about it that bothers me.
