My average completion rate is kinda low, and I wanted to get it a little bit higher. The thing is, I have no idea what games are contributing to my average percentage (minus a few I've played recently) and more importantly, how much they contribute (I want to see a percentage, as well as the number of achievements I have vs. how many there are).

Is there a tool that does this already? I looked at astats but it doesn't seem to provide anything like this -- at least not on the surface.

    I've heard that every game you have at least one achievement in counts for the average count. I have no idea if it counts the total percentages per game (for example: a game with 10% achievements done, and one with 90% would give 50% average completion rate) or if it counts the total achievements (game with 100/1000 achievements done and a game with 9/10 achievements done would give 10.7% average completion rate). I also have no written source about what counts and what doesn't. – Arperum Jun 22 '15 at 13:29

    @UnknownZombie Yes, that's correct. I'm just interested in boosting the percentage, which is why I want to see what games are contributing, what their % completion is, and how many achievements they have total. Obviously, lower total achievements would be easier to boost the percentage because there are less to get. – Seiyria Jun 22 '15 at 13:45
  • @Arperum what you said is correct. – Seiyria Jun 22 '15 at 13:46

I've written a script to solve this problem. It can be found on GitHub here. If you are not a developer, please use the website above!

It tells you what games are below average, and which ones are the easiest to boost (strictly mathematically). Improvements and pull requests are welcome. I know very few people will want to download something for this, but it's the best I can do without having a server. Here's a sample run of the code:

$ node index.js --api-key=XXX --vanity-url=seiyria
Resolving vanity url "seiyria"...
Getting games for steam64id: 76561197998412147...
Found games: 416 (not all of these will count)
Found 95 games that count for Avg. Completion Rate, sorting...

Your average percent: 29%

    I did something similar: github.com/chicks-net/life-graphs/blob/master/Dash/… – chicks Aug 25 '15 at 23:01

    @chicks That's neat! Much more in-depth than mine. – Seiyria Aug 25 '15 at 23:23
  • Thanks, plus all the code (plus my data) is in that github. You can do it all without an API key. – chicks Aug 26 '15 at 0:10
  • @chicks An API key was a much more convenient solution to the problem IMO. Definitely can be done without but I wanted to keep development time as short as possible. – Seiyria Aug 26 '15 at 0:12
  • I agree the API is more convenient, but if you don't want to live within the limitations of the their licensing it is nice to have another option. I also maintain history, make graphs, and provide links to the Steam page so you can see what achievements are left do do. If I had known about the API when I started I would have used it for more. – chicks Aug 26 '15 at 0:25

Third party websites like the one Seiyria made are great, but do not take into account the games you played during free weekends, and probably also miss games you played using Steam Family Sharing.

If your Steam level is 10 or above, you can see an exact list of games that contribute to your Avg. Game Completion Rate using the Achievement Showcase. While selecting an achievement to display, Steam shows a dropdown input that contains all games you have earned at least 1 achievement for, including games you don't actually own. (free weekend games, family sharing, maybe even refunds)

  • I believe the Steam API does give you information based on those achievements. Otherwise, I don't think they would do it either - I'm pretty sure they use their own API. – Seiyria May 31 '16 at 15:06

    @Seiyria I thought so too but your website and others say my average is 60%, while Steam displays 57%. After poking around with Steam's API I found out 10 games are missing, which I played years ago in free weekends (and probably earned achievements in them). The dropdown input I mentioned does include these games. – Rudey Jun 1 '16 at 9:36

https://completionist.me provides an excellent and extremely easy-to-view bar graph on the right side of your profile showing how many games you have in each bracket of percentage completion (my chart):

cme bar chart - number of games by percent complete

Above, you can see that I have 984 games with 100% achievements and 12 games with 0-5% completion. You are able to click into each bar to dive down into which specific games from your Steam account fall within that range of completion (my 5-10% games):
