Case in point: I bought the original Final Fantasy from the Wii Shop the day it came out and over the next few weeks made my way to the final boss. That was months ago, and the boss is still sitting there, waiting for me to beat him.
Don't get too comfortable, Chaos--I'll come for you eventually. I hope.
I also bought Final Fantasy IV: The After Years the day it came out. I played through the first few chapters and then, despite the fact that I had enjoyed the experience up to that point, I stopped playing it, too.
Interestingly (well, it's interesting to me), I'm trudging my way through another Final Fantasy title--Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon--at this very moment. What do you think: Will it soon fall by the wayside like its aforementioned namesakes?
Also, have any of you developed this "problem" over the years?
