Believe it or not, the vast majority of video gamers buy video games and don’t end them. There is no question of getting absolutely everything out of a game. But that most of them don’t even end the story. Or let’s say: see the credits. Of course that happens and there are many reasons for it. But no, it’s not the exception, it’s the rule.
You know this because there are very, very often a trophy for simply ending a game and because there are people who make evaluations for it. There are often trophies for defeating the final boss or completing the last rank of the store, and if you get them yourself, you can see what percentage of the other players also made it.
Almost every second player has already finished the remake
The Final Fantasy VII remake also has a trophy for completing the last chapter and has currently brought 48.6% of all players. Almost every second player has already finished Final Fantasy VII Remake and that’s above average! DualShockers has found that most titles are somewhere between 20 and 40%.
This is particularly noteworthy in view of the fact that the remake is only available for about two months and requires a playing time somewhere between 30 and 45 hours. Against the background of the large sales figures, this value is exceptional. After just a few days, Square Enix announced over 3.5 million units sold worldwide.
Why is the high playthrough rate? Sure, we are currently living in a very special time. But does that affect the pass-through rate? And whether it continues to rise or fall? It would be interesting to look at the value again in a few months.
