100% completion

I have never achieved 100% completion on a sandbox game. Generally, I am only interested in completing the main missions in the game, often not even bothering to finish all the side quests, unless they will provide me with items that will make completing the main missions easier. I just don’t have a lot of interest in scouring the entire map in order to find every little secret, as the game ceases to be fun and becomes work.

For the first time, I’m trying to get that elusive 100%. I’m playing Brütal Legend, and right now I’m at 93% and have completed all the main and side missions. I still have 38 serpents to free and 8 hidden metal objects to raise. I’m trying to do all of it without consulting an online guide, but I’m not really sure if I’m going to be able to hold out, as it’s getting to be very time consuming.

Do people really enjoy finding everything in a game? For even the games that I absolutely love, I’m not so gung ho that I feel I need to scour every virtual inch of terrain.
