How many games have you finished this year?

NOV 08, 2021

It's OK if you don't remember the exact number—that'll mostly be an excuse for Fraser to show off, since apparently he writes them down. In a spreadsheet. Everyone else, give me a rough estimate, that's fine. It's not the number that matters—what I really want to know is, did you spend this year playing more games than usual or did you fall back on old favorite forever games to help you get through? Feel free to count games you finished on other platforms, if you want. A phone's just a computer you can play in the bathroom anyway.

Phil Savage, Editor-in-Chief, UK: I've finished 20 games so far this year, although most of those in the first six months. I did start the year planning to keep up with 2021's releases, but that didn't really pan out. The only ones I've actually completed are Hitman 3, Deathloop, and Forza Horizon 5, two of which I reviewed. Instead, I spent more time trawling my backlog, and finally completing a couple of games I'd left languishing near the end. Mafia: Definitive Edition, Control, Yakuza: Like a Dragon and even Shadowrun: Dragonfall all finally saw completion. Then, a few months back, I got back into Apex Legends and Guild Wars 2, a couple of forever games that—along with Destiny 2—pretty much ensured I wouldn't be finishing anything else for the rest of the year. Maybe next year, eh?
