Today, Mass Effect 3 and crybabies everywhere got the Extended Cut DLC. I think it did nothing to fix what people didn't like, and only expanded on the finale for those of us who enjoyed it for what it was the first time around. So... what a big fucking waste of time.

At least, that's what I would say if I were being direct. In the same veign, I wondered all day about the end of Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, a game I didn't finish, but reviewed anyway.

"Beating" or "finishing" games is a tricky subject I think. What does it mean to "finish" a game. I normally consider the end-credit roll "the end" of a game, but video games continue to push the boundary of what "the end" means. Do you ever really finish Modern Warfare 3? When are you "done" with a Grand Theft Auto game? What happens after the credits roll in Red Dead Redemption?

So I ask you, what does "finishing" a game mean to you? How many games do you actually "finish" in a year?

Do you finish games?
