What is your average number of adventures played per year?

...or a month and we can do the math.

And since i am talking of recently with most of us growing up, and maybe getting less interested with the scene nowadays, plus work and days being lesser as long than before; i would say i will be over my top when or if i finish 2-3 per month, depending on many things, so i say my average is 2.5 adventures per month.
doing the math its 30 adventures per year.

Its extremely difficult to say because it depends on whats getting released vs how long games are vs how much time i have. Im guessing i end up playing through about 6 longer releases over the course of a year. But again that hinges on how many titles are released that i want to play.

add to those each one of us has long backlog list, right? i doubt if any would deny it! also, the ambition to replay some titles, i mean its never about the shortage of releases.

Well for me i rarely play the same game twice. So usually im looking at recently released games, and sometimes trying to go back to games i missed.

I average about 70-75 a year but my definition of adventure is rather relaxed. It includes interactive movies, HOG/HOPAS, visual novels, “lite” survival horror, story-lite puzzle games, edutainment, “walking simulators”, and all those weird, unclassifiable miscellaneous games that get thrown under the adventure label merely because they don’t fit anywhere else. I also count each episode of episodic games as a separate game if they are released separately, meaning something like Telltale’s Sam & Max counts as 16 games total, which will pad my numbers if others count them by the season.

In the last 13 years, my worst year I only played 3 adventures and my best was 301. My average for all game genres for the last 13 years is 119 games per year, so adventures make up around 60% of the games I play.

What’s amazing though is how many popular adventure games I still haven’t played/finished. I keep getting sidetracked by all the weird and obscure stuff…

Wow, D!  That’s an amazing average. 

I usually play 5 or 6 new adventure games per year and about that many casual games.  I don’t like to play more than one game at a time, and I only start to play when I know I’ll have a decent chunk of time to devote to it.  Casual, card, and arcade games fill in the gaps between adventures when I don’t have much time to play a full game.

     

It’s not hoarding if it’s books, games, rubber stamps or chocolate.

37 games on my finished lists in ~3 years, so 12 a year.  I’m guessing I have finished a larger percentage of those in the last year but I’m not going to figure it out right now.

I’m counting the Blackwell series as separate games but Cognition as one.

I own ~400 adventure games so my backlist is likely never running out. Tongue

I’m in for a maximum of five or six adventures/year. Along with a good ten casuals/year. Probably more of the latter.

About 20 a year, but I do play games in other genres as well, and those tend to be much larger than adventure games so that’s why I don’t have as much time to play more AGs.

Whish would be an average of 11 per year if 2012 didn’t stick out as the year I played as many of the Adventure Gamers Top 100 games as I could.

     

An adventure game is nothing more than a good story set with engaging puzzles that fit seamlessly in with the story and the characters, and looks and sounds beautiful.

Wow, I usually average about 24 games a year, this year I’ve completed 16 so far, so I am on track for a typical year. This year has some great games too. Can hardly wait for this years Aggie awards.

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

I seem to be about average reading over the thread, my problem is the large gap in my CV: 2014 - 0; 2013 - 0; 2012 - 0; 2011 - 0; 2010 - 0; 2009 - 0; 2008 - 0; 2007 - 0;2006 - 0;2005 - 0;2004 - 0; 2003 - 0;2002 - 0; 2001 - 0; 2000 - 0;

I also have long gaps - not that long, of course, but it varies from “pathetically few” to “above few” to “not that bad, really”. I also tend to forget games I disliked or didn’t care, so I started rating every game I played recently. So far I played 10 new games this year. Not that bad, really! Hoping to play some long-awaited games too, like Mage’s Initiation, Space Venture and Asylum (the last one is a joke, I don’t believe it will ever come out).

I have backed a number of games on Kickstarter. If you count all those delays together, it adds up to well over 50 years. I’m not kidding or exaggerating.

That’s one way to mess average numbers!
