I've only played 10 of the first lot & 6 of the second so
40/50 & 44/50 'missed'.
Then again, I've never cared about hotness or cult of the new. I'm happy just playing games I enjoy.

I'm surprised the numbers are so low - over time, as my tastes have moved further from the most popular games on BGG, I've gotten better at avoiding the games that aren't going to be a fit for me. This list is definitely a closer fit for me than the top 100 BGG ranked, from which I've not played 44 games.

1-50: I've not played 20 of them.
51-100: I've not played 23 of them (though I have played Mansions of Madness; so if you count that as morally-the-same as Mansions of Madness: Second Edition perhaps I should only claim 22.)

Some of that is that I've discovered I don't like coöps; so many of the games I've not tried (and will not try) are of that aesthetic.

1-50: I've missed 3.
51-100: I've missed 15.

I notice that I definitely gravitate towards the "hotness". It makes sense, those are the games I hear the most about and hear people frothing about so I give them a try. And I love playing new games, so there's that.

11 and 17 I haven't played, respectively. None of those looks particularly likely I'll try soon, but there's none I'd actively avoid either.

I usually get around to all the hot games at least once. Most aren't my favorite, but if a ton of people like it, there's gotta be something good about it, right? Imhotep was the only one not on my radar at all. I guess I never realized it was popular at all.
