Why Aren't You Finishing Your Video Games?

In today's mostly complete episode of Speak-Up on Kotaku, commenter Dodgerwd wonders if everyone is having the same difficulty finishing their video games as he is.

With the release of Radiant Historia I am left with another dilemma and a question for my fellow gamers. You see, I have not completely finished the game I am currently playing: Resonance of Fate. I have noticed that I have been playing fewer and fewer games to their completion this generation and I cannot settle on the reason. While growing up, and through most of college, I had a strict rule that I must complete the game I was on before moving on to the next. Not so anymore. So I was wondering if some of my fellow Kotakuites have experienced this themselves. Is this change due to getting older? A career? Change in tastes? Or is there just something different about this generation of games? The answer is certainly a combination of things, but I would like to hear what others think.
