Never tried adding them up, so let's see:

*Favourites of each kind

1. Nemesis Inferno (first ever inversion for me was on this ride so it's special to me)
2. Nemesis
3. Black Mamba*
4. Dueling Dragons - Fire

5. Oblivion
6. Baron 1898*
7. Krake
8. Oblivion the Black Hole

9. The Swarm*
10. Flug Der Daemonen
11. Raptor

Sit Down / Floorless
12. The Hulk (original)
13. Kraken*

14. Silver Star*

15. Air*
16. Manta (controversial opinion: never liked Manta, pretzel loop was uncomfortable)

It seems I have 16!

Pretzel loops are a bit much, shocking in fact even for those who are fans, so I wouldn't call #16 too controversial. I'm surprised they exist and that more people don't voice a dislike.

I was going to say; Manta is probably one of my least favourite B&M coasters almost entirely because of the pretzel loop. Controversially, I definitely prefer Galactica; such a fun ride! I think it boils down to the fact that despite Manta being more intense, I personally find Galactica much more fun.

On the whole, I think that the larger B&M flying coasters are perhaps more polarising than universally loved, and I think part of that comes down to whether you like the really constant, mind-numbing intensity that the pretzel loops offer.
Not nearly as many as I'd like.

Nemesis Inferno

Wow, its even more depressing seeing just 7 on paper. I need to get out more.

I’ve only been on 4: Oblivion, Air, Nemesis and Nemesis Inferno.

Air is my least favourite; not as thrilling unfortunately (sorry Mr Wardley) and hopefully there’s more thrilling flying coasters out there.

Oblivion has to be my favourite, that drop is phenomenal!
