Maybe I'm getting old, or I just don't have the time, but whatever the case, I seem to be finishing far fewer games than ever before. Come to think of it, I don't think I've made it to the end of a single title in 2019, and there could be other factors at play.

It's possible I've not recently come across a game that has truly gripped me, but the changing ways in which we acquire new games may also have something to do with it. Gaming doesn't quite seem like a major event anymore - there's no need to go out and buy a physical disc before rushing home to play the latest release - and with the increase in all-you-can consume subscription services, the temptation to jump from one game to another has increased dramatically.

Playing a game today can be a lot like watching a show on Netflix; you spend a while browsing the catalogue, try an episode or two, and then swiftly switch to another title.

We're intrigued to know if your gaming habits have altered since the proliferation of digital-delivery services, so for this week's question, let us ask: how many games have you completed in 2019? Share your thoughts using the comments facility below.

Nothing has particularly changed. I'm a serial game-unfinisher.

Last one I finished the main storyline of was GTAV. Prior to that I guess Gears of War and Halo games, where co-op kept the incentive up.

I've definitely never been one for replay and unlocking all “collectables”.
Finished Sudoko a few times… (is that a game or a puzzle?)

There is stuff all new games worth playing let alone completing!
Kingdom Come Deliverance was the last game I completed, Great game but a lot of back and forth,Gets repetitive but don't they all?

Been getting around to Steam backlog and must have at least 50 out of 200+ unplayed games that are big titles and worth playing,I only just started playing The Witcher 3,GTA V,Fallout 4, Far Cry 5,Mafia 3 just to name a few.
The older I get the faster the time seems to go though, Also the harder it is to find a game to satisfy me.
Far Cry 3

Far Cry 4 and Subnautica are in progress. Most other games I play are open ended.
Only played WoW this year, so not completed anything.
