Did you finish the most games ever in 2020? (Covid-19 impact)

I absolutely say yes. I’ve been quarantined and all I did was smoke and play video games and watch movies, of course.

But, bc of this messed up year, I’ve never finished more in my life.

Borderlands 3
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
(2019)...shortest, most pathetic game i ever played.
Doom (2016)
Doom: Eternal
Far Cry 5, I believe I finished earlier this year.
Wolfenstein: New Order
Wolfenstein: New Colossus
Control
(+ 2 DLCs)
Gears of War 1 & 2, I believe.
Dishonored

Wow! 11! No way I did that.

Have you finished most ever this year and what were they? And if yes, was it due to the Covid pandemic?

I've actually finished less games this year than previous years but that is solely based on how much time I put into Animal Crossing New Horizons. I have what's considered an essential job so COVID hasn't given me really anymore free time than usual other than not being able to play basketball.

I also finished/played far less than usual. Spent all my Covid time this year working on finishing my basement and future gaming/movie theater.

Re: Did you finish the most games ever in 2020? (Covid-19 impact)

No, but itís the most in a few years for sure. Iíve played games through to completion 38 times so far in 2020, and itíll almost certainly be at least 40 before the yearís out. (Subtract 1 if you donít want to count playing through Miles Morales twice.)

By comparison, I finished 28 last year, 20 in 2018, and 24 in 2017. (I still have a ways to go to compete with 2016, which had just shy of 50 playthroughs, inflated by playing Ratchet and Clank on the PS4 over and over.)

Iíve had more time to play but havenít really focused on finishing things. After my kid had to evacuate the dorms, weíve been multi-playering through the Master Chief Collection, with only a few missions of Reach left.

Nah. I was still playing Fallout for a long time, which you canít finish. I think the only ones I finished were Persona 5 Royal, and a couple of old games on Game PassóFinal Fantasy 9 (I owned it on PS but totally donít remember) and Costume Quest (really short game, but pretty enjoyable). I am currently reading my 80th book of the year, so lots of free time went there.

I feel like I did finish a lot more than I have in previous years. I was laser-focused on completing a bunch of games mostly in Q2, but that trailed off as work got busier in the rest of the year.

Re: Did you finish the most games ever in 2020? (Covid-19 impact)

This year, whilst i have played a few games, i have only really completed 1. Played and recently completed AC Valhalla. Other games i have played are Ghosts of Tsushima (verrrryyy close to completing it, but i was losing interest fast. Will get back to it and probably only an hour or two more to complete). Watchdogs Legion.

But most of my time gaming this year has veen spent on COD MW and Warzone. First time i have ever really gotten into the online component of COD and really enjoyed it. Spent a lot of time unlocking all weapons, upgrades and getting all weapon skins up to Damascus. Took a while to get them all done.

Re: Did you finish the most games ever in 2020? (Covid-19 impact)

I guess I may have, since I got a Switch right around January 1st. Off the top of my head:

Mario Odyssey
Luigis Mansion 3
New Super Mario Bros Wii U
Super Mario 3D World
Zelda Breath of the Wild
Super Mario 3
Super Mario World
I know I played through one of the Genesis Shinobi games
Lots of arcade beat em ups.

I forget if I beat anything on the PS4.

Re: Did you finish the most games ever in 2020? (Covid-19 impact)

Nope. I think this year I've played the least amount of games in recent memory. I have a lot of half-finished games and finished maybe 1 or two.

Since my job transitioned to 100% online back in March, I stare at a screen all day, so the last thing I wanted to do is stare at more screens.

I will say though buying (and finishing) Ghost of Tsushima gave me a little zip in my step, as with today's release of Cyberpunk 2077.

I'm lucky enough to be an essential worker so my schedule stayed the same in 2020. Finished 7 games. With 2021 I'm not seeing anything that is pushing me to buy a next gen console.

Which is great since I can tear into my Bscklog that I keep saying I'm gonna clear out lol

Nope. Only games I finished are Hitman (2016 edition) and the Resident Evil 3 remake. Spent more time watching TV shows

Re: Did you finish the most games ever in 2020? (Covid-19 impact)

I spent a little more time playing, but put over 100 hours each into the two most recent Assassins Creed games, so I donít think the number completed went up by any significant amount.

I did have a lot more free time due to being forced to take PTO I would normally cash out and being furloughed for a week here and there through the back half of the year. From July - December, I was basically off every third week, but the time went more to house projects, catching up on tv shows and reading than gaming.
