Probably about one per week, very few being large RPGs. I play video games every evening. I had one period lately where I focused on knocking a few short ones out of the backlog and probably finished 10-15 in a month. The month I played The Witcher 3, not as many.

25+ is basically a game every two weeks? AC Odyssey took me almost three months and I'm still not even done the DLC. I could see there being the odd year or two in my 36 years on this planet where I have beaten more than 25 games in a year, but normally maybe somewhere in that 10-20 range. I do play a lot more games than that, especially due to Game Pass, PS+, etc, but I'm sure in a normal year I do not finish more than 20 games, almost ever.
It really depends on the year but 25-50 seems right for this poll since I haven't been sub-20 in 6 years. Did the 52 games, 52 weeks challenge a few times which pushed my average up. Overall I'd say 20-30 on "normal" years. Which honestly isn't hard since most games I play tend ta be pretty short.
I aim to beat at least ten new games a year for GOTY voting purposes, and chip away at my backlog a bit too. Many games in both of those categories tend to be lengthy JRPGs for me, so I imagine the yearly total ranges from fifteen to twenty-five.
Looking at this year, I beat Yakuza 0, Gris, RDR2, RE2 Remake, Dishonored 2, FFXIV: Shadowbringers (main story), AC Odyssey (finished base game, working on DLC). Caveat is I started playing some of those last year. I’m also hoping to finish Control, Yakuza Kiwami, and maybe a couple others like Bloodstained and Gears 5 if time allows before year’s end. Probably will be a few others I start but don’t end up finishing until next year.
So that’s about 10-12? I think that’s been pretty typical for me the past few years. Playing FFXIV on and off so that definitely has an impact on how many other games I have time to finish.
although me and others are fringe cases with way too many games played and/or finished, I do find it funny people borderline shaming those that played "a lot" of games, and by "a lot" I mean posts like "LOL I BARELY FINISH 5 GAMES"
You know, 5 games at an average of what, 10 hours a game lets say, is 50 hours. 365 days a year would be 8760 hours, so thats less than 1% of your time playing videogames a year, is that correct? Is that what those posts are implying, that in a gaming forum, you really only spend around 0.7% of your time in a year playing videogames? Unless this is specifically cases where you play more games, but you don't finish any, which is weird in itself but ok.
That pool is kind of ridiculous as someone who has a a difficult work-life, the minimum should be about 5-10 and that’s where I sit :/ I do think I play more than that in a year, but nowadays most games bore me before the ending
