After a month of release, only 30% of players finished.
I gave up after I arrived to that Venice-like city. I felt no investment or reason to keep going, approximately 25 hours pf play. And according to teh Internet, I didn't miss anything and aved mysef from a supposedly broken chapter. If it wasn't for Persona 5, I would be still bitter about this game. I just uninstalled it and moved on!
this game is shit with game mechanics from another time. Nomura should really stop making games and only work as character designer because many really like his art style. This game would have turned good 10years ago. It is the first FF that doesn't impress me graphically. i don't even know where i'm at, prob close to the end but i do not fel the urge to finish it i really didn't like it.
nomura didnt make the game.. he started its direction.. tabata is the main guy behind it..
And here is your typical clueless gamer. Doesn't pay attention to news at all
Graphics was the only thing that this game did right
@bouzebbal I've not played the game, but what outdated game mechanics are you talking about? The gameplay looked fine to me. It was the story, music, characters and atmosphere that sucked donkey balls (from what i've seen on Youtube)
Fun game. But then you get to chapter 13, and it becomes a different unfun game. So i quit.
Chapter 13 was rough. But at least that boss at the end was pretty awesome. SPOILER Honestly my least favorite part of the game was after the 10 year gap. I thought that whole entering Insomnia bit was so weak. It's like they slapped that together in a day.
So you gave up right before arguably the coolest boss fight in the game? Your loss I guess but sadly I completely understand and agree, the storytelling in FF15 is an embarrassment to the series, so many cut scenes end abruptly and you get the impression that the developers feel that the average player doesn't want dialogue heavy games.. made infinitely worse by their decision to painfully remind everyone every time you load the game up with "for fans and first timers" thing.
which is fine, but they failed to simplify the plot and have less characters involved to go with it.
60% completion rate is really high for a main stream RPG...
Agreed. I was about to say, that is actually pretty damn high for a game that moved over 6 million units.
They probably gave up after Chapter 8 when they realized how it was obviously unfinished and the team just rushed the to the finish line.
I got stuck trying to find the bar in that city. I was considering giving up, but pushed on and found it. I'm very happy I did. The story gets much much better, the fights are awesome, and the last 3 or 4 chapters go so fast because it's so good. 3/4 of the game is good, but slow. The last quarter is what makes the first three quarters worth it imo. I hope one day, you come back to this one and finish it. This game didn't feel final fantasy like, but as an open world rpg, it's pretty good and those boss fights at the end are intense.
That damn behemoth keeps kicking my ass in front of my castle
lOl, bro you have to roll like a mother fucker.... I wasn't even a high level, I was on that bit with like 99 health potions, ahahahhahahaa when I finished that whole fight scene, I had 2 potions left. That bit was soooooo difficult but when you beat it, you're like OH MAN!!! @PHoenixUp if it helps motivate you, before that fight you can travel back in time to play the game and get money to buy health potions and level up. And.... this is the last "fight" you're almost at the end.... GOOD LUCK become the 60% lOl.
Blizzaga the crap out of him and spam him with teleport strikes.
Just use magic, magic is ridiculously over powered, that's how I won most of my fights despite being obviously under-leveled. Sometimes I got lucky and a summon smitted my opponent and I didn't have to waste the magic.
haha same thing happened to me so I just grinded levels and came back to kick it's butt easily.
60% would be above average as far as I know. I don't know how they got that number though. I've checked the trophy data yesterday and there is a trophy which you get close to the end which was synced by approximately 30% of players.
60% is well above average. I believe it's around 20% normally.
Yeah, that's what I was about to say. Definitely well above the average
Eh? Do most people not finish their games? I can understand if it's a bad game or you just don't like it, but I finish most of what I own.
". I've checked the trophy data yesterday and there is a trophy which you get close to the end which was synced by approximately 30% of players" Ok. Everyone doesn't game online and everyone doesn't sync their data. I game almost every day and I rarely sync and for the most part don't really care. I think I did one last year and it literally showed me info from 2013 LOL!
I got the platinum trophy.
So did my wife and I'm working on mine. It's an easy game.
Wow I don't know how you manage that, it was borefest, I thought 13 was bad and I platinum that but I couldn't manage past 25hr mark on this game lol
Jup, but those grindy side-quest... ugh!
l am waiting for all the dlc releases then playing it in it's entirely. good thing l decided to wait with the amount of changes and added content since then can't really blame em
Yeah, I stopped after I got to Altissa and decided to wait until all the DLC has been released until I got back into it. I love the game though. I just want to play everything on the first playthrough.
The game is cool but the combat is crap. Now I have a ps4 pro I will get back into the game. But I wish they went with a more hack and slash style or the old fashion turn based system. What they have now is shocking.
That's extremely high for a RPG. You look at something like Witcher 3 and the completion rate on PS4 is around 30-40%. Just goes to show despite the haters, there is a silent majority who simply enjoyed the game.
Indeed, and the delicious irony is that you see the haters of FFXV on here trying to use this statistic against the game.
Oh boohoo cry me a river
60% seems fairly high to me. It's really common to not finish games, I do it all the time. BTW We have not been waiting 10 years for this game Versus XIII is dead.
Gave up midway. Beginning was awesome but became so boring couldn't keep going
I want to beat the game so I can enjoy New Game+
There was nothing in the game for me to care about insofar as story or what drove the characters. I gave up and played FFIX again instead.
when you release an unfinished game, thats been edited to pieces before launch, people will stop playing it. No one on my friends list has beaten the game.
Bought it for my girl last Christmas. She never even opened it.
That's what happens when they're imaginary.
Ha I've had so many fine women that you could not come close to getting. I know you have many waifus but your reality does not mean the same for everyone else.
I just put it down for awhile after I realized that it's getting enhanced for Xbox One X. I want to play it in 4K.
I've been leisurely playing 15. I bought it when it first came out but didn't crack the seal until about 2 months ago. And, that's when I bought the season pass for all the DLC on sale. I'm still casually playing it because they are patching it so much and changing it so much and I will not come back when it's done I will be moving on.
I gave up after visiting first tomb (or whatever it was). But honestly 60% is pretty high.
They gave up probably halfway through or even from the first hours when they realize that this shit they are playing have nothing to do with FF & so they say fck that shit then they uninstall & never looked back.
ONLY?? that's high af, I beat it, and will be playing through it again after I clear this backlog.
Not surprised, the game went quite stale and samey after 10-15h. The mechanics and lack of enemy types just killed the game.
60% is pretty high actually. According to the ps4 trophies game ending trophy completion rate for p5, its only a little above 30%. Ffxvs around 40%. Course that only applies to ppl who sync their trophies... They are rpgs after all.
60% seems like quite a lot I would say, I thought it would be a lot less than that
I bought this game on a digital sale for $30 aus....$30 dollars down the drain, cheesiest snorefest ive ever played.
I stopped playing at Chapter 13
i gave up after 20 hours. the game just didn't resonate with me much. but i am aware that they don't care. because all that's important is the sold units. what people have to say does actually not matter in the slightest.
I think that's a pretty good percentage considering. What is the average % of finishing an rpg game?
60% for rpg game is damn high. I bet if any of Mass Effect, Skyrim, Dragon Age etc. Got this rate.
For any game really
Wow that is actually a really high percentage.
I got to chapter 2 and it was actually putting me to sleep I'll go back once I finish my ridiculous backlog
The game is just bad
With all the controversy & news that they planned to fix the game at a later date. I stopped playing the game at about chapter 5 & planned to go back when it was finished. Haven't gone back to it yet but I will. I was really enjoying it.
Put it on easy... Boom
the game is already easy...
I finished it, and thought it was okay, until i watched someone else play it, after they picked out its flaws just towards the beginning of the game....that opened my eyes to more issues i ignored. I doubt i would have finished if i watched that video first.
Still half more than cod.
Ive seen much worse. 60% is pretty good.
To this day, I just wish they'd add in additional cutscenes that add the meat to the story, that was clearly conceptually made, but never delivered. They keep expanding the Universe, as they like to say. But the core is so hollow... It's going to collapse in on itself. The more additions to the Universe, the more sour I feel. I just wanted them to fully iron out the main game. They've done everything but that. How hard is it to fix a story that has content already made for it?
It's a pretty shallow game overall, cool things do happen during game-play and it has nice graphics but it doesn't have a solid foundation, no polish. I haven't played it again after I finished it.
