I said "3 or more," though it's kind of hard to determine how many I've finished. There are a few from years ago that I wouldn't call particularly polished, but were definitely complete and playable. There's also a project I helped with, but I was just making content for it. Still, I think the total would come down to at least 4 if you were to be really stringent about the definition of a "finished game."

Another potentially interesting poll would be - "In what game genre do you usually make your game?"

I'm guessing platformer would win, but still interested to see the results.

Maybe an annual census quiz should be organized? I think it would make for an interesting statistical read, not just for TIGgers. It could incorprate questions on game genres, development habits and time management among other things.

I answered "3 or more". I have made:

Princess And The Banjo
Slide Them Boxes
Text-based Multiplayer Shooter

plus a bunch of AGI / SCI adventure games in my teens which I don't consider too noteworthy but are still finished games. I made around 8 of these.

I'm close to moving into the 10+ category, but that doesn't say much about the quality of game. Those first few were pretty bad. I've made 6 games on my own (with another one to be released shortly), and 3 games I've worked on professionally.

Generally I think that the number of games released is a poor metric for one's "qualifications" as a game developer. The only thing it does show is an ability to finish a project, and that's non-trivial.

Haven't made a cent from any of them (all freeware), but I'm still proud.

I, too, am penniless.

I'm sorry

I'd be sorrier if it wasn't true

I know it's not the perfect metric, but I also know that I'm much more inclined to trust the game design ideas of someone who's actually made finished games than someone who hasn't.

I'd actually really love to see someone more not lazy than me make a survey like that. Anyone?

Don't worry, the poll options only go up to 20.

Another potentially interesting poll would be - "In what game genre do you usually make your game?"

I'm guessing platformer would win, but still interested to see the results.
For me, it's:
RPG - 3 (one being RPG/Puzzle)
Building/crafting game - 2
Puzzle - 1
Action - 1 (game doesn't fit in any other categories as far as I can tell)
Tower Defense-ish - 1
Simulation - 1
Text adventure - 1
Music game - 1
Roguelike/MMO - 1
I have no fucking clue what genre this is - 1

Only the Tower Defense-ish game has platforming movement. No actual platformers.

At least 5 games, more if you count older games I never published because they're so old and embarassing.

It's just that I see so many platform games on the devlogs forum, which is why I thought that Grin
