Just curious. With the time I can devote to play games I tend to finish like 50 games a year. Some are very short, but others exceed the 100 hours of gameplay. I would think my numbers are pretty average and that average barely makes a nick in my ever-growing backlog. What about ya?

None, I like to see my backlog growing.
I just like dump 1000's of hours in one or two neverending games.

Too many games not enough time

+1. I was even about to say not enough.

I rarely finish games. A lot of the time I lose interest about 2/3rd to 3/4 of the way. That goes for games with a story, games with levels, strategy games where the end-game is just cleanup, pretty much everything.

I've only started playing games on Steam in 2016, so excluding 2020 (since it's not over yet), I've completed a little over 200 games, which means more than 50 games per year, sooo... 40-60 for me.

Not very accurate tho. According to this i've completed only 6 games

Well, it's only 100% completion, so non-100% and no-achievement games are missing. If you're not into 100% completion, such stats will obviously be useless for you.

Depends on mood, time, etc.
Also when it comes down to mmo i prefer sticking with one game for as long as possible.
Lately it's a pain to find something worthwhile or of interest though.

Depends if you mean finishing as in the main story, finishing also side stuff and whatever or finishing as in 100% the game (100% as in, all achievements, even those that add nothing to the game or just makes you replay it 10 times for no other reason than an achievement) since that is a huge difference which matters a lot in the numbers.

I think the game ends when the credits roll-up. I see achievements as a way to artificially expand the playtime of games. I don't care about achievements if I need to play the game more than once to get them all, and even if I did, the first run will make the game a complete one and additional runs a plus. For games like, for instance, endless runners, it will be up to the players to establish when the game is finished. Probably once they achieve the desired score or it gets boring to keep on doing the same.

Well, then it's a lot more than that I finished 100% since I can only track those but in my experience, I can easily finish 30+ games a year if not way more but my problem is often that I start a game, get distracted and for some reason never get myself to pick it up again and so I have way to many games I started but never finished :(

PS. unfinished is orange, beaten is green, completed (100%) is blue

My record is 74 in 2018, but I've slowed down considerably since then.

I keep a list of completed games on my profile sorted by the year and month completed: https://steamcommunity.com/id/expiredwaffle/

Hey, that's a neat way to keep the track of it. I kinda do something similar but in a visual way on my profile. https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198120530775/

Hey, that's pretty neat. I was going to sit there and watch the entire gif, but I wasn't sure how long it would take considering the list appears to start somewhere in the late 90's :P

Impressive!

Thanks. Oh, it's not that long, lol. I'm actually kinda late to the online purchases. I liked more hard copies of the games, so before Steam and other platforms, my average of completed games was way smaller, probably cause I had less stuff available.

50 games, that's really nice. I like to finish everything in the game story, side quests, secrets, achievements & in-game achievements, if there is too much grinding required or hardcore gamer skill required I leave it alone.
For me extra quests and achievement give some sort of exploration of the game which I do usually love. So because of that normally I finish 20 games in average per year. If I play more games than that I will run out of games to play.

If I look at my Steam game history
Prior to 2016 : Finished 15 games
2017 : Finished 30 games
2018 : Finished 21 games
2019 : Finished 22 games
2020 : Finished 9 games till now

I dunno... It really depends on my mood at any given time. If the mood is too low (as it's been way too often lately), then a lot less because I can't get myself to start anything (after I start it's usually easy to continue).
Being an achievement hunter probably also lowers the number a bit since I spend more time on any given game. And a lot of the games that I like are pretty long to begin with. XD
So, I guess somewhere between 20-40 per year. Probably. Maybe.

I complete less than 5 a year. Most of my games are online or have infinite re-playability :?

I finished (beaten/completed) 105 games last year. This year so far I've beaten 42 and completed 64 games and dropped 4 since they won't run on my PC. So a total of 106 games beaten/completed so far.

I rarely finish games. Even ones I enjoy. Many games are just too long.

This year, however, I am on track to finish 2 games per month. Some short, like HOGS, some medium like Mass Effect 2, and some long like Grim Dawn (played for a long time, but finished this Spring).

I usually aim to finish a game per week. Most of those are in the 5-20 hour range, though. I probably only manage to finish 5 or 6 AAA games that have massive time requirements.

I keep that (finished games, not 100% completions) in a local Excel file:

  • 2012: 16
  • 2013: 20
  • 2014: 22
  • 2015: 36
  • 2016: 27
  • 2017: 31
  • 2018: 32
  • 2019: 28
  • 2020: 31 (includes some big games like Yakuza 0 and XCOM: Enemy Unknown, which took almost 100 hours if combined)

This means that I've completed 243 games so far. 2811 hours were spent playing these 243 games (though not necessarily for completion of the campaign). I'm liking it so far. Maybe I'll finish an average of one game per week by the end of the year.

Not many and for whatever reason when I finally decide on a game its something dumb. Last few games I have beat are Rez Infinite (PC), Astebreed (PC), Cars 2 (PS3), Under Defeat HD (PS3), Matt Hazard (PS3), Sonic Forces (PS4), The Order 1866 (PS4), Maneater (PS4), Battlefront II (0S4)

Always goes that way and I dont know why. I'll buy a few 100 games some of them brand new AAA then play some game ive had lying around for years. I think Maneater is the first game I've bought then played in like 5 years.

Don't really have a preference, seems random. I started playing a few PC games like Devils Hunt but then it crashed 3btimes so just decided to play console stuff lol.

Don't have much time for gaming with work, family etc, so I rarely finish more than 20 games per year. Last year I think I only finished 9. By finished I mean played through the storyline, not earned all achievements and all such stuff.

I use completionist.me to track my progress and I did about 100 the last 3 years and should be on track for 100 again this year. 2018 was the best year at about 120. But that doesn't really mean much, as I also enjoying playing a lot of short games. There are always some longer games, but the majority are shorter games.

most likely something around 100 or more as I play pretty much all VNs that come out and since you just say games, then things like little puzzle games count as well
