Remove zero gamerscore games from completion stats

I did not see this topic in the forums. When looking at your completion stats I think this site is including games that have zero gamerscore. This would bring down your average. Other sites don't include zero gamerscore games.

Why do people have zero gamerscore games on their card? I have a few to indicate to others that I have the game and am willing to boost it.

Having them taken out is kind of like cheating...lol. but that's just my opinion and I'm only one person. Besides if we took them out it may effect the badge that goes with it.

He's talking about games you loaded up, never unlocked an achievement in, and didn't remove from your gamercard. Not single 0gs achievements.

For example, if you went to Achievement Fest, loaded up hundreds of game to get the various 360v collection badges, but haven't spent the time to clear all the 0 GS off your card, it would drop your overall completion percentage because you'd be showing hundreds of never played/incomplete games. Most other sites do not count 0 GS games in their tracking, as if you had never played them.

What exactly is the point of this thread?

I second this, it would bring me from 48% to 62%.
Screw that! Leave them in, choke the masses on their own fat!

I think you should just leave it the way it is
I realize that I'm new here to GTN, but if players don't want to have games included that they have not earned achievements in, why should new code be written to exclude them when it is much easier for the gamer who care about it to simply remove them from their card?

Obviously, GTN is scanning for game adds and changes on a game it has scanned, but is it looking for removals?

So, either way, it might take code.
i keep alot of games at zero on my list so if a friend needs help they compare n then we can play co op

For me it just comes down to not counting games that I never got an achievement on for the percentage calculation. Early on, Arcade games would show on your card even if it was a demo. As other people mentioned, for collections(and for badges here) you can get badges for playing the game, even if you don't get achievements. Then there's just games that I play them for a few minutes and decide I never will play them again, Rumble Roses and Thief fit for me. Too bad I spent 7 hours to get that one achievement in DOA X2!
Fifa 14 for me. F soccer. If MS let's us take them off our tag, they shouldn't count towards completion %.
I think we should be able to remove 0 gamerscore games.

I routinely do this with games I'm not playing right away, since I go by MS's stats for most stuff; completion %, DLC for completions, etc.

I'd be happy to remove a few games from my profile to get me over 50% if that would work. Is this close enough to warrant a vote? I thought that was mentioned as an option?

The zero point games really don't reflect the games that I try to complete. Alas, I think I have 200-300 of them.
