Most gamers haven't completed Bioshock Infinite and most likely never will

A harrowing fact for many games developers is that many gamers simply don't get to see the ending of their games for whatever reasons.

I only stop playing games if they get boring before it's over. I played the timed trial for Bioshock Infinite and was blown away in one hour. I WILL see the ending when I buy it.

No spoilers here but the ending completely changed my whole perspective on the game. Definitely a game worthy of finishing.

Squall50051269d ago

Spoiler here.

Bruce Willis was dead all along.

This game was meant to be finished multiple times. Forget just finishing the game once, You need to beat it at least twice. The subtlety of foreshadowing in this game is done with so much detail. I'm amazed at how delicate the game really is.

What's really gonna blow your mind is when you play the game over and realize that they were building up toward that ending through the entire narrative.

I thought it was off the wall too, but then...it just makes so much sense going through it again.

@ da_2pacalypse: Not if you have a good memory and can remember pretty much anything from the game including every audiolog xDD Like I found all but 2 :( and I don't feel like I forgot anything. I can pretty much remember every moment and they started to make sense now and I was exploring the world really well and saw a lot of other interesting things. But well, I see where you're coming from and I'll definately replay it. Hard was ok, but now I want the 1999 mode.

Edit: The only thing that I kind of forgot while playing it for the first time is when...

SPOILER

Bookers nose is bleeding when talking to Comstock. Later you find out why noses are bleeding, because they are from a different universe and are remembering things and try to make up own memories, because theirs are wrong or not accurate or existent. I thought it was bleeding because of the fight way before that and forgot about it during the game.

This is a game that most people will finish. It's an amazing game.

It's better than Bioshock and most everyone loved that game including me.

LOGICWINS1269d ago

"This is a game that most people will finish."

Statistics say otherwise.

Squall50051269d ago

@LOGICWINS

This is N4G. Logic doesn't matter here.

Eddie201011269d ago (Edited 1269d ago )

Yes, the majority of games are not finished but really good games with good stories, production values and great game play get finished. Bioshock Infinite is one of them.

Heavy Rain had over 60 percent completion rate.

Most of what makes up your statistics is shooters with multiplayer that have mediocre single player and RPG's because they are long games. A really good game that is 10 to 15 hrs. long will more likely get finished than not. It's just that there aren't many of those these days.

Ducky1269d ago

@Logic

The stats say that over 50% of everyone who played Infinite, finished it.

So, most people have finished the game.

brave27heart1269d ago

Am I reading this right? 46% completed it on easy, 34% on medium? So 80% completed the game?

MysticStrummer1269d ago

I have two friends playing Bioshock: Infinite. One loves it and the other is so bored by it he's considering trading it in without finishing it. He loved the original Bioshock and is underwhelmed by the new one.

I've also stopped playing games to completion that are NOT boring, particularly because I've gotten too accustomed to great games letting me down with terrible final acts.

xHeavYx1269d ago

Didn't the game just come out? Some people have lives and work

Yeah I platinumed this game so I've actually seen the ending a couple of times.

jakmckratos1269d ago

Oh my god..this game wasn't long enough..I couldve played it easily for another 8 days

HammadTheBeast1269d ago

There is replayability. I've played it 4 times using different Infusions an gear, and making different choices.

maddfoxx1269d ago

Isn't it like this for most games? I know a lot of people who always buy games, but never finish them. I finish pretty much 97% of my games. There are some that I just haven't bothered to finish. Don't know why anyone wouldn't finish Infinite tho.

Lucreto1269d ago (Edited 1269d ago )

I just finished Bioshock Infinite today. It took me a week on and off.

I am still wrapping my head around the ending. Bioshock Infinite needed the COD crowd to make it profitable and I don't think they will understand the ending. I might be giving them too little credit.

xXBlondieVanHarlowXx1269d ago

How did we get from "didn't finish the game" to "it wasn't profitable?

P.S The CoD crowd doesn't care about great stories and great gameplay, their idea of fun is reaching their 12th prestige before the next CoD title. Their idea of a good story is alot of shooting and explosions with a grunt with an accent yelling at you all the way.
