    Default How much of your collection have you completed?

    So in my recent quest to finish some of the games I'm in the middle of before I start any new ones, I decided to take a tally of the games in my collection that I've beaten.

    Turns out I've actually completed over a quarter of my collection, which is a bit better than I had expected considering it's 80% RPG's. 59 of 218, and that leaving unbeatable games like Tetris and Skate or Die in there as unbeaten, but also counts all ports of the same game as beaten (FF2 on SNES and FFChronicles on PSOne, ect.)

    So how much of your collection have you actually completed, or even played? I'm not doing too bad on the played/beaten ratio either, as I've only played less than half of my collection. Man have I got a ways to go though.

    I estimate about 10% to 12%

    needless to say I better find a way to retire young...and just dedicate myself to beating at least 50% of my collection

    1100 games.... i'd be lucky to say i've beaten 100 of them, and i'm far too lazy to count. just look at dreamcast for me... i've beat maybe 6 or 8 games, have almost all of them.... heh. i'd say that sets the standard for me.

    I've probabley taken down around 12-15% of my collection. I wish I could say it was higher, but its really not. :/

    well i have given at least 2 hours of playtime to at minimum 75% of my collection. The stuff i play out the most is anything i had before 2004, and ps2 stuff. The number is affected greatly by atari crap. In any case, even if I havent played some games, i bloody well intend to, Excepting the select few black tengens that actually suck.(Read: Vindicators and the awful ports of after burner and other sms games)(I got sucked into the land of black tengens after I bought Tetris, RBI BASEBALL, super sprint and road runner).
    I swear some day i'll play more of this stuff. I can say this though: I have beaten 32 out of 38 ps2 games. (I consider activision anthology "beaten" as i unlocked everything. Yes even laser blast. <3)

    65%, thanks to the relatively low shit rate on Genesis.

    I have a VERY bad habit of getting to the end of games and not beating them. It's the same with TV shows I really like and such. I just don't want them to end.

    Beaten games? I've probably only PLAYED 60% of my collection. I just don't have much time, although when I do, it's a bleedin' marathon!

    I have about 900 I think (still updating my records), and I'm willing to bet I've beaten at least half.

    After very careful statistical analysis, linear regressions, the use of several recursive functions and a night out with the regimental bikini team, the department's resident super computer (a very dependable DEC PDP-6), We here and Jibbajaba Inc. have come up with a value of 17.3%. Pleae note that the margin of error of this figure is +/- 5.7% due to a computer error and the incorrect rum being used in the pina coladas during the company's annual "carribean night" beach party in Yosemite last week.

    I'd be lucky if I'd beaten 10% of my games. Probably closer to 5%. I've probably only played about 35% of my collection for more than 10 minutes apiece. I enjoy buying games so much that I spend all my time looking for new ones that I don't play the old ones
