How many games have you ever “finished?”

In the Metaplace.info Off-Topic forum, there’s a thread on this topic.

Here’s what I said:

I have trouble getting the time to finish games as well, but when I don’t it hangs over my head. From what you guys are saying and statistics, I guess I finish more games than many people (but not more than a lot of my friends…). I like to get as much out of a game as possible (and I’m always looking at design, etc.), and I always want to finish games… but usually it ends up that if I reach some personal goal in the game that I had on the way to the finish, or if I get bored because I’m exploring too much and not having that much fun (I have to curb my tendency to want to explore everything in a game now because games are so big…), I often end up losing interest for a while. But I try to stick with games to the end… which sometimes means I don’t let myself play the next awesome game I just got until I finish the one I’m on, and if I don’t end up doing that… well, I have some really good games I intend to finish which I haven’t gotten to start yet.

Last game I finished:
Halo 3 (last night… and all my friends finished over the weekend)

Games I have played but not finished yet (though I intend to at some point):
Final Fantasy XII (PS2)
Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth (PSP)
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (360)
Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth II (360)
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (360)
Lost Planet (360)
Dragon Quest VIII (PS2)
Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal (PS2)
Disgaea: Hour of Darkness (PS2)
Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht (PS2)
Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven (PS2)
Champions of Norrath (PS2)
Call of Duty 2 (360)
X-Men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse (PS2)
…and there are probably more…

Games I haven’t gotten to start yet but intend to finish eventually (or I may have only played for a few minutes):
Radiata Stories (PS2)
Shadow of the Colossus (PS2)
Jeanne D’Arc (PSP)
Kingdom Hearts (PS2)
…and I’m pretty sure I have others but can’t remember which ones right now…

Games I have finished that I can remember at the moment… well, that would be a fairly long list. Anyone interested? I’ll make a list of as many as I can remember that I’ve beaten if anyone cares. : )

But now I think it would be fun to make a list of games I’ve beaten, so I’m going to do that here.
