I have to 100% every game I play. It's so satisfying to completely master a game.

Are you like this?

And is there any game that you just could not or would not 100%? For me, that would be A Link Between Worlds' endless cucco minigame. I do not have the time or energy for that.

No, except every time I play Kirby 64, I make myself get all the Crystal Shards.

Well, of course. It's the only way you get to fight the awesome final boss!

ME!! ! Nothing infuriates me more than unfinished/failed quest entries in the quest log.

... which is why I am completely infuriated by those modern games where "100 percent completion" or similar requires you to perform completely irrelevant, repetitive and/or boring tasks.

Some of the worst (I gave up on both):

- The drinking game in "Watch Dogs" :evil: :evil: :evil:
- The Butterfly/Chocobo Race games in Final Fantasy X :evil: :evil: :evil:

Some of the 100 percent completion quests in GTA: San Andreas could be tough, but I at least found them funny. After all, you get to do parallel parking, Blues Brothers style 8).

I try to, but I lack the skill, patience and luck to do so inmost games :(

I have gained 100% in many Zelda games ( all the older ones anyways...can't get all rings in Oracles, keep missing 1 Kinstone fusion in Minish Cap, can't beat rollgoal for the final lure in Twilight Princess & hate the DS games & Skyward Sword to bother with 100% ), a few Metroid games, Kirby 64, Kirby Super Star, Kirby Squeak Squad, Kirby's Adventure, some Ratchet & Clank games, Pikmin and the original Jak & Daxter come to mind...also Saints Row 3 & 4 ( including DLC ) and Sleeping Dogs are probably my proudest 100% completions. There have been other games but I can't think of them at the moment...

t^h^i^s^, every zelda and metroid game i play i have to get 100 peecent or else i just get this nagging feeling in the back of my head even long after i "beat" it.
not a big fan of the ds games either (spirit tracks was the least bad of the two) but i 100%ed them both.
also rollgoal is impossible for me! i have TP on the wii and the damn thing is so extemely sensitive (i have wiimotionplus)i cannot even beat the first level! i'd rather play it on gamecube.

I usually dont.


I have very little patience, and if I dont have a practical use/need for an item, I dont bother with it, because what's the point?

Like in the JRPGs that I used to play. There was always some "ultimate weapon" or other, but as damn near all JRPGs are pretty easy, I never, ever bothered with these. The game is already easy enough as it is.... doesnt need to get worse.


The exception is when a game has some massive unlockable something that can only be gotten by getting 100%. That's pretty annoying, but I'll sometimes do it in that case.

I love to experience all the content a game has to offer, so I'm usually going for 100%. However, this leads to unfinished games, most notably the Final Fantasy series, where the amount and style of side-quests is tedious/and or boring. Or just plain impossible sometimes.

Nooooo. I get bored of games so easily, even the ones I love, that I never even beat them 95% of the time, let alone complete them 100%, It's a feat for me to actually play a game long enough that I finish the main story campaign.

Although I will admit, I mainly play older titles, so a lot of them came out way before the trend of having 6-hour-long interactive movie-style campaigns. I prefer games where you actually have to use some skill, rather than ones where you sit through lots of cutscenes, button-mash through QTEs, and shoot generic terrorists with poor AI in linear corridors disguised as streets.

Yes but not like real completionist if I like a game I feel compelled to 100% it but only my favorite games get to 100% and then I do it again Fallout 3 I completed at least 7 times.

If it's a game that i really enjoy playing like almost every Zelda, Mario, Final Fantasy and some RPGs i can't stop until i complete 100%.
