Less Than 10% Of Gamers Complete A Game
Have you completed a game before? Perhaps you’re a Call Of Duty fan and you’ve completed the single player campaign, well good job bro! But is that really completing the game? I’m talking achievements, 100% completion, every unlock, every trophy possible. Now I’ve got you thinking. Have you actually ever completed a game? Latest research shows that less than 10% of gamers have actually FULLY completed a game.
Music Magpie have put together a study which reveals which games have the highest and lowest percentage of completed achievements and some of the results are very interesting. Far Cry 3 has the most completed achievements, with 30% of gamers finishing the game in story mode. FIFA 17 has one of the lowest, with only 5% of gamers on average earning all achievements in the last five releases. Out of all who have played Titanfall, only 2% have managed to complete all the achievements.
The site researched achievement percentages across the top 50 popular games on Xbox and PlayStation such as Far Cry, FIFA, Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty. The research found that on average, only 9% of gamers have completed all of the achievements in a game.
We can see from the below info graphic that Far Cry 3 & 4 had the most completed achievements, with 30% and 26% of gamers finishing the game for each release respectively. Why is that? Are the people that play those games better gamers? More superior gamers? Naaaa, they must be easy games.
Liam Howley, marketing director at musicMagpie.co.uk, said: “After speaking to regular players of video games whilst we completed this set of research, we found that boredom and new game releases were the strongest factors when it came to the reason why video games were being left without all rewards being achieved.
“But with exciting announcements at E3 such as a mainline Pokémon game for the Nintendo Switch, Assassin’s Creed Origins coming out in October 2017 and new advancements in gaming technology, it will be interesting to see how average achievement rates are affected.”
Anyway, enough of that, get back to your game and smash them achievements & trophies!
