Smaller stuff like Machinarium, Dokuro and Jacob Jones often falls by the wayside when bigger titles launch, and in some cases (Ni No Kuni, Soul Sacrifice) larger games go un-completed, or require an additional playthrough to really get the full picture (Alpha Protocol). The backlog, as they say, is infinite.
When lack of time time or desire results in a game being so abandoned, I've always taken the perspective that, having denied the game the opportunity to say all it wishes to say, I have no right to comment on its quality.
Earlier this year, though, as I stepped away from Ni No Kuni to deal with some action game I found more appealing, I asked you - dear readers - if you'd find it valuable to read "reviews" of games I had not, in fact, completed. The response was uniformly "yes," though I didn't actually put that feedback into action until today.
Why today? Because today I bought Time and Eternity and really want to try it out before Dragon's Crown happens, and I've been playing this sweet little Vita game called Nun Attack that I really want to tell you about, but I can't imagine I'll actually finish it until months from now - and I want to tell you about games like this when my enthusiasm for them it at its zenith.
And lo, a new tag was born.
