So! I just (finally) finished putting my PS3 games into a storage unit, so I could get rid of all those jewel cases and save some space. This is something I did previously with my PS2 collection, incidentally, and probably something I should do for my PS1 collection as well, which is currently sitting in a box. 😛
Anyway, I thought it would be interesting to run the numbers on my games, just to see my completion percentages. So here we go:
I have 90(!) discs worth of PS3 games. However, two of the discs are DanceDance Revolution and Zumba; since those two are more like exercise platforms than games, it makes the question of completion really nebulous, so let’s exclude them, and say I have 88.
Of those 88 games, I have successfully played through to completion (of at least one ending, at least one time) … 29 of them! That’s an approximately 33% completion rate, which is… actually a lot better than I expected. Huh. But we’ll get to the reason for that below… It’s still pretty pathetic, all around, I think. 😐
There is another category I’d like to introduce: games that, despite buying, I have never once inserted into my PS3! There are five games on my list I never so much as touched!
…Yeah, I’m reflecting. 😦
Highlights of my collection include:
From the Atelier series: Atelier Rorona, Atelier Totori, Atelier Meruru, Atelier Ayesha, Atelier Escha & Logy, and Atelier Shallie. Do you get the impression that I like the Atelier games? Because I love the Atelier games. Sadly, I don’t seem to complete them: the only one on this list I’ve completed (once) is Ayesha. And, since Rorona, Totori, and Meruru are a chronological series, I never played Totori or Meruru, since I wanted to complete Rorona first. I just… never did.
From the Lego games: Lego Batman 2, Lego Batman 3, Lego Marvel Super Heroes, Lego Pirates of the Caribbean, Lego Movie Videogame, Lego Lord of the Rings, Lego Hobbit, Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 & 5-7, Lego Jurassic World. Yeah, I really like the Lego games, too. And since they’re seriously easy to complete, these ten games raise my completion rate by a really significant degree: if I exclude them, my completion drops to 19 out of 78 games, or 24% — a huge drop. 😦
Games that I had played through on a previous system: Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMix, Jak & Daxter Collection, and the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection. All of which are games I played to completion on the PS2 (with the exception of Symphonia, which I borrowed a friends GameCube to complete), none of which I completed on PS3. I was a little unsure about whether I should count them as completed or not, but since I bought them individually for the PS3, then didn’t finish them, I decided they belonged in the uncompleted category. All great games, though. 😉
Finally, it’s not really what I’d call a highlight, but I was uncertain whether to count my Genesis Collection disc as a game I could actually complete, seeing as it’s actually about 40(?) games. But since I didn’t complete any of them, I suppose it’s fine to just count it as another uncompleted game. It doesn’t sway the total that much, anyway.
Unless I count every game on the disc separately, of course. But that’s way too much effort. 😛
Ok, enough of that. My resolution is to maintain a much higher completion rate for my PS4 games! I’m currently sitting at… 2 out of 13. (Rachet and Clank and Song of the Deep, incidentally.) So the current rate is about 15%, but I am in the last dungeon of Tales of Berseria (which is huge, incidentally 😦 ) so pretty soon that will jump to 3 out of 13, 23%.
…Yeah, I’ve got a ways to go. And I need to stop buying games. -_-;
