Another couple games that get away from me are FFXII and DQVIII.
FFXII - I always have great intentions, and I truly enjoy the game. I love chaining enemy drops for better ones, but something always seems to get in the way of me actually progressing the plot beyond the inital encounter with the demon wall. Actually, I think I just made it past it last time. I'm sort of holding out playing it because maybe it'll get an HD remake...
DQVIII - my last go at it I think I got the furthest I ever got. Made it just past the thorn castle, then like other things. Life happens, and I stop playing. I will beat this one day. This game fixed everything I didn't like about VII, but I just can't find the time, and I absolutely love the characters. Yangus is always worth a chuckle as is Trode.
I know my time will be limited after I get married in september, so I kind of need to find the time now to beat some of these games lest they fade away forever.
