    Struggling to get WatchDogs 1 done on pc. The driving kills it for me.

    I'm slugging through Gears of War 4 now, this game sucks so bad, but after 100gb download I better get through this crap, why does Xbox only have rubbish first party titles? Only good game is Forza Horison 3 and Hot Wheels DLC.

    MP on the other hand, if I ever play one of those for longer than an hour it's a miracle, exception being Overwatch Blizzard knows how to make some grade A gaming cocaine... Call of what? Battlewhatnow?
    This is why I have a backlog. If I start a game I will finish it. Maybe not plat or 100 percent but I will finish.

    I don't get not finishing your games. I may put games down if I really am not liking it but eventually come back and finish. Case in point FFX end game grinding luck for Dark Aeons. Hated it but got it done.

    I normally have 2 or 3 games going at a time. 1 plot heavy rpg, something brainless and something retro.

    A game has to be utter **** for me to not finish it. I just choose where to invest my game time wisely. I have a fat backlog sure but I don’t have many unfinished games.

    Fact is its much easier to make a game where the gameplay is surrounded and drowned out by other player interaction. If you take a game like Divinity OS2 and have 3 other people play with it compliments the experience and elevates it into something disproportionately mind blowing. People not finishing games is nothing new. I didn't even get to play most of black ops 3 because the games campaign sucked and the multiplayer was **** taking me 10 minutes to get into a laggy game. So technically I never even finished the multiplayer either.

    So this stat actually made me a bit sad. In fact I didn't believe it at first but @Vast_aire posting trophy stats is a pretty accurate metric. But ultimately I think the reason is simply that there's way more casuals out there than core gamers. And my proof for this is if you check trophy stats for MP games. Example:

    Overwatch level 50 trophy is sitting at 33%

    I'm not big into MP games and I'm over level 300 on Overwatch.

    Level 50 for Overwatch is nothing. 2/3rds of people who bought Overwatch have hardly played the game.

    Maybe others can do the same for BF, CoD, Destiny, TitanFall etc as I don't play those so won't know the trophy references.
