Bean Diving Board

    Beanpotter recently had a great idea (proof that everyone has one in their life at some point).

    All those games that we have kicking around unstarted are not counting against our completion % stats, so we are not particularly motivated to start them.

    The idea of the board is to start each and every one of those games, gaining at least 1 achievement. The shame of having our completion % collapse will no doubt shame many of us into rebuilding this % as quickly as possible.

    Most people will find that dumping all of their unstarted games into the mix causes a drop of 10-20% on their completion %. Set a target of Xmas to get back to your original completion %.

    I have ME 1&2, Dragon Age, Fallout 3, NFS Shift and Guitar Heros 3 & 5 that all fall into this category.

    The link for the leaderboard is below.

    Bean Diving Board

    Join the social experiment and force yourself to play those games that are just gathering dust.

    As a guide for gamers with GS > 100k, probably look for about a 10% fall in completion. For those under 100k possibly 15-20%.

    Please drop me a note of your comp % before and after you dump the new games onto the list.

    This is a good idea: but I only have two: Portal: Still Alive and Magic The Gathering. I'm not worried about my completion percentage. I'm worried about my Ratio. Still if I get the urge to do this, i'll join. smile

    Current completion: 64.12%
    Current Ratio: 1.6082

    Shame I don't have any unplayed games at the moment, otherwise I'd join in on this. Still might be fun to watch everyone else though. Yeah, I'm watching you... I'm creepy like that.

    It was very liberating and actually fun playing all those different games at once (30 in total)

    I went from 84.09% to 68.14% a fall of 15.95%. Pretty impressive I thought.

    Thanks to The Chuck Chuck for coming up with the term 'Bean Dive'.

    I hope more people give it a whirl.

    Oh god! If I do that my completion % will probably go down 40%, leaving me at a lousy 10%!!!!

    P.S. I have 45 retail games that I haven't started, and 2 XBLA game.

    P.S.S. I'm in baby. Going to start tonight and continue tomorrow. Also, I am not going to be able to get my completion % back up this far by Dec 25 2010. That's just impossible.

    47! Awesome. Could be the biggest Bean Dive yet. You should post your current percentage in here before you start.

    All are welcome. Why not aim to get your comp % back to the old exc dlc %, but inc dlc this time. Just a thought!

    No way. Well I got a few for Fallout 3 I started while I was without the internet. that's only at 25%. I'm finally making progress in my long grind/ difficult games and don't want to drop my % yet.

    I'm always thinking 'Can't start this game till I beat a few I already started'

    I've never had a huge stack of unplayed games. I always finish the 1 I buy before I buy another, so I'll probably never do this.
  • Posted on 12 July 10 at 13:43Permalink
    I have 26 unplayed retails and another 3 arcade games. Recently got my completion ratio up a bit amd i'm in two minds as to whether to do this or not. If i get bullied enough i will :P

    I have about 70-80 unplayed retail games and about 7 XBLA.

    If I go bean diving my completion will be like 20%, if not less. LOL, damn!
