Completed Games of the Year

I thought it would be a good idea, really I took the idea from a fellow blogger friend of mine, to record a list of every game I completed during the course of the 2007 year. You will see the top list (Completed) is a compilation of all the games that I completed all the way. Some games are hard to designate a clear completion point, Picross for instance, but I considered it completed after beating over 300 puzzles since I got the game. In fact, that could be the game I have put the most hours into simply because there isn't a clear cut finishing point. On the other end of the spectrum I have games such as the Godfather: Blackhand Edition that I completed the story mode on but I have yet to become the Don of the City, the ultimate position in the game. So there are varying levels of completed on this list.

The second list is of all the games that I have yet to complete and will most likely move up to the Completed List for the year 2008. Some games I will not beat, maybe ever, because I simply wouldn't enjoy it (here's looking at you Splinter Cell, Madden, Call of Duty 2). Other games I simply will not be able to complete because I don't own the system they reside on (sorry Motorstorm).

It's also interesting to see the systems that I tend to play more often than others. If you couldn't tell by the systems I tend to post about the most, it should be pretty easy to tell the three major systems I play the most. And stay tuned for my Most Enjoyed Game of the Year award next week where I will rank my completed games in order of enjoyment.

Things to note about these lists: Some of the games on the Not Completed List are games I have beaten in the past. In some cases maybe multiple times (Metroid Prime 2, Perfect Dark). Also there are tons of games I got to play in demo form through download or kiosk that didn't make the list. I only put games on the list that I had at least an hour or more to experience; and it was usually far more time than that.
