[CNN]90% of Gamers Don't Finish Their Games

Only 10% of avid gamers completed the final mission, according to Raptr, which tracks more than 23 million gaming sessions.

Let that sink in for a minute: Of every 10 people who started playing the consensus "Game of the Year," only one of them finished it.

This....this is kinda sad. All the amazing titles going unfinished. And then we question why games are shortened and dumbed down for the masses. SMH.

that sounds about right, its only recently that i have been playing games to finish, remember lots of older games i have that i loved that i have never finished

I'm guilty of this, I buy too many games, so most of them go unfinished, and I know my games list is nothing compared to most of the guys here.

That being said, I completed RDR, and finished ME2, DA:O, and Fallout NV twice.

Completely believable. I rarely play singleplayer nowadays, I buy games for multiplayer.

I must fall into the 10%, I've finished all my games.

Games I truly enjoy, I play to the finish. The ones that don't really hold my interest, the majority of games nowadays, I play until I can confidently decide they are not worth the little free time I have available.

Exhibit A: Jumping to the wrong conclusion.

Beating/finishing and completing are different concepts. So far, I've beaten well over a hundred games but only completed a few of them.

Does Fallout and Oblivion count in this category? Lol, I find the side quests more fun than the main game..

Except New Vegas, that actually had a fun ending I must say, but I still have yet to finish the main Story line in Fallout 3 and Oblivion and I have many hours into those games..
