Do you still try to go for 100% completion rates?

I never did. Getting beyond say 90% always seemed more like a chore than a game,


Pretty much this. I don't go for 100% because that doesn't interest me as much. There have been a few games where I was reasonably sure I did almost everything there was to do in it, but there weren't achievements or anything to show I made 100% complete on it.

I can probably could my 100%'d games on one hand. I did it for GTA: VC and SA, but it's a lot of work for little reward.

I have a big enough backlog that I should be focusing on going through games just to play them, rather than dragging other games on to 100% them.

Often, it also brings good video material sometimes.

SR3 and Digimon World being the latest two at 100%.

I remember back then, as a silly little 12 year-old, when I told myself "Once my buddy is done with FFVII, I'll borrow his PS1 and start a second playthrough to get a 100% file. EVERYTHING."

Yeah, that turned out greeeeat.

Read everything, listen to everybody, believe nothing, until you can prove it through your own research. For that is the true mark of intelligence.

Yes, if I like the game enough to 100% it (though I've never gone for perfect saves like 99 of every item and such). This is the same approach I took as a child.

When faced with time constraints, I chose to reduce the number of games I play rather than the depth to which I play them. I recognize that it is ultimately my choice as to what I do with my gaming time. This is simply another aspect of taking responsibility for my actions as an adult.

I complete games that can be completed. Games like Just cause 2 where if you tried to complete it you would be there for years no.

I stopped caring when games added pointless grinding achievements.

I don't have the patience for that anymore, especially when it's stuff like Faerie Solitaire where the last damn egg has an absurdly low drop rate :<
