In the Games section of the User Profile page, the fifth box down under Collection Stats reads:

Games Completed in Collection
##.##%


The formula being used to calculate this looks to be: [(GamesBeaten + GamesConquered)/(GamesTried + GamesPlayed + GamesHalfway)]

I think the formula should actually be: [(GamesBeaten + GamesConquered)/GamesOwned]

As much as I wish I could claim to have beaten over 11% of my game collection, this would more accurately represent what the stat claims to be. ;)

Oh, whoops, I miswrote what the current equation is. Wow. I think it's obvious, but the denominator should read:

GamesTried + GamesPlayed + GamesHalfway + GamesBeaten + GamesConquered

or just GamesPlayed, with that implicitly including all the above.

What about the "used to own" variable?

Currently only "Games Owned Digital" and "Games Owned Physical" are included in the "Games Owned" stat (as far as I can tell), which is how it should be.

The GamesOwned stat I'm referring to is the number visible where it says "see all #" under "Games [username] Owns" on the profile page.

Oh, I see what you're saying. Yeah, I'm not sure if games you've marked as beaten but not owned are counted in the current equation or not, but you're right, that should be considered.

Specifically, games you beat but don't own should be excluded from the numerator somehow.
