Inventory of games
A few months back I decided to take an inventory in my backlog of games to get a scope of the entire thing. Somewhere along the way (probably due to GWG) my backlog of games I've never played or never finished started piling up insanely. With me attempting to find another job after I just finished college, I'm left with a lot less long term time to play. I decided to start finishing what I call "bite sized games" or games that you can move forward in even if you are just playing for a half hour at a time. Other games that are long term (Dark Souls, Elder Scrolls IV, Fallout 4, Final Fantasy XV) will just have to take a backseat until I'm set in my life.
Anyway the inventory I took was huge. REAL huge. Not counting about a dozen games I've downloaded on Wii and WiiU (too lazy to set it up and look yet), the total number of games that I own either physically or digitally across all platforms is 596 games. With 2 more set to come in a few days for GWG, I definitely have over 600. I decided to include games I want in this inventory of games and that came out to 68 additional games.
Luckily I also included a "did I complete it" and "did I start it" column in the document. My totals are:
41.78% Owned and Completed
63.68% Started and Completed
In terms of "completion" For all Xbox 360 and XB1 games it all comes down to achievements. Are all achievements gotten? Yes = Complete. If no, can they all be gotten? Yes = then get them all! No = Any you are not able to obtain because they are discontinued are automatically not considered. So technically I've "finished" 1 vs. 100, etc. For every other platform it's all to my own standard. Sometimes it's just if I've finished the campaign or not. Sometimes it's "have I done everything feasible?"
I also decided to list everything I was currently playing as "In Progress" which comes out to 5 games:
Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story
Bastion (XB1 Edition)
Rhythm Heaven Megamix
Harvest Moon 3
One last thing. I also started rating every game I've finished. I haven't written a comprehensive review of all of them but I just decided to list my 10/10 games here so far (in no particular order):
Super Mario Galaxy
Super Mario Galaxy 2
The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess
The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask
The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker (Actually my favorite game of all time)
Star Fox 64
Mario Party 3
Super Smash Bros WiiU
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
Rock Band 3
Saints Row 2
Red Dead Redemption
I hope to get those %'s up and tackle the backlog even more as time goes along. Now getting a sense of the scope I know it will take a long time but I'm determined to get it up a lot more.
