My Experience Playing 400 Xbox 360 Games
I recently hit a milestone for having played 400 Xbox 360 games. That's about an equal number of retail and arcade games along with two Games for Windows Live games (Fable 3 and Wordament). That's a lot of games, and it has me thinking about what I've played and how my experience probably differs from what other people have when they play through a ridiculous number of games.

So, here are a few of the more interesting statistics and observations about the games I've played, just to give my experience some perspective.

Stackable Games- I only played one game on two different versions. That was Fable 3. It's one of my favorite games of all time, and I had no problem with buying it on sale for the PC at $7 after I had already completed the console version. I managed to get all all achievements in both versions, though the PC version was far buggier. But that may have had a lot to do with my PC, which is not really made for gaming.

Games for Achievements- I don't play many games just for the achievements. I used to do that more often when I first took my console online. That's when I wanted to make sure I had more gamerscore than my friends. So I played Cars, Fuzion Frenzy 2, Open Season, Live Score Tracker, Live Draft Tracker and, of course, Avatar the Last Airbender. I didn't enjoy a single one of them, and the experience with those has turned me off from buying games just for some easy gamerscore.... well for the most part. I did get Sonic the Fighters and Fighting Vipers when they came out, but those only took a few minutes of my life.

Worth Playing- I've actually really enjoyed most of the games I played. If I don't like a game, I tend to put it down quickly and not worry about how it affects my completion percentage. They are games, after all, and not worth making myself miserable just to increase my score. I think I've been fortunate to mostly play games I really enjoyed. But that has only happened because I mostly stick to genres i enjoyed. I mostly play shooters and action games, but I'm not adverse to branching out every now and then. If I do branch out, I always research the game first to make sure it is something that I think I will like.

Completion- I tend to at least try to get all the achievements in every game I play. I am less inclined nowadays since I have less time to play. I don't mind the occasional boosting sessions for games that have dead multiplayer, as I often enjoy chatting up with the people I am playing with. And if I am doing a grindy achievement, I just turn on a podcast to listen to it in the background. I actually look forward to some grindy achievements just so I can catch up with my favorite podcasts.

Am I Rich?- I must be rich to have played so many games, right? That's what people who don't play many games think about my habits and my collection. But a lot of people on this site are probably using the same methods I do to play more games than the average person. I borrow and trade games from people I know and my family members (two of which have 360s). I almost always only buy games when they are on sale. And I wait for the really good sales. And I get games each month from Games for Gold. This lets me spend about the same amount of money each year as people who only buy a few new games, and I get to play far more.

So that's all I have for now. It's a lot, and I don't blame you for not reading it all. If you have insights you would like to share about your own gaming experience, please do so in the comments.
