No one's been ragged on yet? Here, I'll blow the doors wide open.
Games that I have never even seen being played in the flesh:
Half Life 2
Any game by Treasure
Sam & Max
Day of the Tentacle
Any Star Trek game
Any Dragon Quest game
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
Nester's Funky Bowling
There's plenty more, of course--and if we're counting games I've actually seen but never played, the list grows immensely. On top of that, if we're counting games that didn't become dull after, say, 2 hours and I put down never to play again--you might find that I've only actually played 15 games my whole life. You might think it's bad, but to be honest, most people have never even heard of these things--and that's who I am: just some regular guy who happened to stumble upon this place.
-I don't care that Clover Studio was shut down, because imo their games were at best mediocre. -Both Half Life games are extremely awkward and linear -Everyone seems to go into convulsions when there are fire and ice levels in games, yet Nintendo games always get a pass. This is unfair because Nintendo really started the trend and even more frustrating they continue to do so over and over and over.

Ahh, The Master. One of the mos humane and inhumane villains of video gaming at the same time. ....I've never finished Fallout 2, Ive tried twice but I always quit when I'm about to meet the president... I need to give it another try.
Ah, yes, that The Master! I remember... and yes, I can totally see why you'd be whigged out. He truly is nightmarish. Can you provide me with either an audio or video clip? I'd like to hear how freaky he sounds.

An HG101 confessional?
1) I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't dance, but I do spend waaaaay too much money on game related stuff.
2) Little to no regrets regarding 1.
3) I jumped when the dogs came through the window in Resident Evil.
4) I actually got really freaked out playing (but more importantly listening to) System Shock 2.
5) I'm a jack of all trades, but master of none when it comes to games, with the sole exception being I cannot get my head around RTS games for the life of me (and I've tried to get into it via Starcraft and Warcraft, and a couple others. I've given up trying now)
I'm still nervous when I play King's Field 1 & 2 for Playstation. The game has some of the darkest labyrinths and scariest foes in a Playstation game, and the dreary music, ominous sounds and the fact that humans don't really have faces adds to the suspense. Then there's the ghosts that loom around and blind you, and the screen gets pitch black...then you're nervously running into walls and what you "think" are doors...only to get stabbed in the back by an unknown assailant.
