In Response To: Finished or unplayed games *OT* (Cody Miller)

: 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.

Lots of sensible reasons; but you're Cody Miller, so I'll let it go.

Also:

: a surprising number of people don't

: [...]

: Well, I added it up: Of the games I own I have:

That's cheating; you get to leave out games you bought and later got rid of.

Anyway, I don't think I own any of the Steam games in question; but of the games I've bought (on Steam or otherwise) I've:

Finished: 1.1%
Not finished: 1.14%
Not played: 97.77%

That's including too many assumptions to concisely list; but in particular it's inflated by my having bought Ultimate Add-On's: Tournament Edition and Descent: Levels of the World.

(Also, some of the people surveyed may have finished the games on another platform, or outside the Steam application. I've done that with some games.)

: It's one of those stats you look at and scoff over

Maybe if you're you.
