Finished or unplayed games *OT*

I recall seeing some stats for steam, and a surprising number of people don't even play the games they buy at all, and many don't finish. I shook my head and thought about why you'd buy a game not to play it, or start a game and not finish it.

There's games I started and never wanted to finish because they were so bad, but I figured that would be only a few, since I can only recall a couple. Well, I added it up:

Of the games I own I have:

Finished 65%
Not finished 28%
Not played 7%

I was pretty shocked to find that I have only finished only about ⅔ the games I have!

Granted there are several games that I haven't had time to play yet but intend to (I have a huge backlog of adventure games because so many good ones are coming out, yet they take so long to play through), but I found some I wanted to start but never did, forgotten on the shelf.

As far as completion goes, the original xbox is best here, as I finished 100% of the games I have for it. I only have Halo, Halo 2, Stubbs, Indigo Prophecy, Metal Slug 3, and Metal Slug 4/5. I guess I just bought only the games that interested me.

The worst seems to be the SegaCD, with more than half the games unfinished (57%). This is obvious, because they system only had like 4 good games.

It's one of those stats you look at and scoff over, until you realize you're not that special.
