Just over half of those who have played God of War have completed it. But is that quite as impressive as it initially sounds?
It would do to look at this article. Over half is a very good statistic. https://metro.co.uk/2017/11...
Not accurate. Many consoles are offline for whatever reasons.
Obviously, the number of God of War completions is only taken from ONLINE consoles meaning that this is accurate in context.
You're not particularly bright, Deep-throat.
Hmm, that’s just your opinion and a poor one actually.
You are Correct Deep-throat, even MORE people have completed the game!.
@ Deep throat You played yourself they probably took that statistic from people that have PS plus, because it shows the percentage of players that have certain trophies as well so you would need to be online for that. I guess it's too hard to use logic when you are busy trying to hate.
LOL. this is too funny
your damage control is showing.
I don't even need to read it. I know that's a very good statistic!
Yea, it should be obvious to anyone who is familiar with gaming how amazing that stat is. It is a VERY clear testament to how well recieved and genuinely like this game is. 1. The game is still very new so many may still be playing through. 2. Just think back of the last 10 games you bought, how many you finished, you might be surprised even with your own completion rate.
Not surprised. Pretty impressive for such a long game. I couldn't stop playing.
I got the plat myself. Game was a masterpiece.
Guess I shouldn't be surprised anymore after that report some years ago about how low the percentage is of people who actually finish games. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED? I couldn't comprehend it then and I still don't but whatever. I got platinum for the whole series.
Same here. I finished God of War I & II on PS2, then Platinumed both Collections on PS3, God of War III, Ascension and now God of War on PS4. I’m close to Platinuming the collection on Vita, I just need time to go back and do it. I plan on going back and doing God of War III for PS4 also.
They should. Good game and this is from someone who has hated the series until this entry.
Ya that's amazing that half have finished, it's usually like 20% average or something like that to finish a game. I am personally working on my Platinum
I wonder how many of the people that haven't completed it are like me and only get time to play for a few hours a week. I can't wait to finish it, and I play every chance I get. I'm also doing every side quest I'm offered and looking for hidden things.
I've played and finished the game, but have not gotten the platinum as of yet. Took a break for two months from games, will return to it soon.
I'm still at about 2/3rd completion. started the game on the hardest settings and taking my sweet time. Also, some of us have to work, spend time with the girlfriend/wife/children/famil y...
I am trying to platinum it on the first playthrough.
Entirely possible. I did and I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer. For me the key was waiting, even after I obtained the chisel before dealing with the Valkyries. Regarding them, several people on this board can attest that the strategy I used on the three hardest worked quite well.
It is actually a pretty easy platinum as it doesn't require multiple playthroughs or lots of grinding. There are also no difficulty based trophies.
it's a fantastic game but it wore me out. I'm coming back to it to finish but Dark Souls came out and I'm obsessed with that game soooooooooo had to put God of War on the back burner
Too busy playing crossplay Fornite.
That was really bad....
Your insecurity is showing.
Well that must suck for you since the frame rate is so different for the consoles in every match you can never feel like you were playing on a somewhat even playing field. :p I hate cross play. Ruining multiplayer. Rocket League is an awesome game but the cross play really screws it up IMO. I guess I'll stick with exclusive games for my multiplayer fun. On Topic: GREAT numbers. I'll be joining those numbers soon, I'm nearing the end. :)
BTW - F#$% mid generation console upgrades too for the same reason.
And that matters to the topic because...
Obviously not if you have time to search out and comment on games that you are NOT playing.
i made platinum trophy on hard mod now give me my cookie xD
So, you completed it? Here’s a lolly for you
Too many people with backlogs that’s why
Completed as in doing every single side mission, collectable etc? Or playing through the main story?
Play through the main story. Most people do not with most games. It is why an average completion rate over 50% for those that started a single player game is quite a landmark. Less than 40% of gamers finish any single player game they begin.
Yeah, I knew it wassnt a high number. I know I dont finish alot of single player games...but God of War wasnt one of them!
I got the plat will never not be happy about that.
Congrats. I'm working on it myself.
Beat it,went to play it again wouldn't get past the Santa Monica logo. Uninstall reinstalled, and now curropted data message pops up.
More stats baby. My favorite.
Yeah 70% of them beat it on give me a balanced experience lol pfft todays gamers
I doubt that, where is the data?
The other half realize how repetitive and similar it is to all other 3rd person cinematic Sony games. After you get past the polish, it’s got nothing innovative. Sales are bad in Japan because they recognize innovate games like Zelda and mediocre, all flash, no depth games like God of War and every other 3rd person game Sony has produced of late.
It's a long game, I'm surprised it is that many. If you look at trophy and achievement stats on psn and xbox live it is rare that more than half of players finish a game.
Um yeah that’s kinda the point of video games
I want but don't have the time :( If only there was more time in the day
God of War is incredible. Best game I have ever played. The combat is so fun that losing/repeat fights is actually enjoyable. Regarding the completion percentage. It is a really good considering it is easy to get sidetracked by any of the sidequests or just exploring the world. This game is not short by any consideration.
I completed and got all but 4 trophy’s . Love the game but my PS4 messed up and firmware corruption so lost all saves. Will start it again later this year for the plat, but worn out with it for now to start from scratch again
*Chants* One of Us! One of Us! One of Us!
Where are these numbers coming from?
Guess about half don't even finish their over-hyped exclusive games. I bet some "gamers" only own games for show.
Nope, it’s deserved the hype.
It seems to have died down. Definitely not fortnite level hype.
It doesn’t need to be endless. There is beginning and the ending. Online game can be shut down and you can’t play it again. That’s why I prefer play Singles Player. You care about MP games too much.
I dont even like Fortnite.
Just finished the story 5 minutes ago on hard. They didn't count me! Have a few Valkyries left to free and some other stuff to complete.
I'm kinda surprised by this, I thought the precentage would be much higher. In all games generally. I have one friend who doesn't finish her games and I don't understand it.
why are people saying it's low when many other games are at like 20 ~ 30% completion. this is actually one of the highest ratios for finishing games i have seen. it is even more surprising with how long the game is.
I haven't got the game never been a fan(probaably getting this eventually), but for over half the people who have got it to complete it is absolutley absurd, and true testament to its quality length or not.
I wonder what those numbers are for the SOULSBORNE series?
Probably a higher rate of folks who played under an hour and gave up.
Wow, that's a high completion rate compared to other games. Glad players are enjoying it.
Was never a huge fan of the God of War series. I always though they were pretty overrated games (good not great), but this game was a masterpiece. Everyone should play through it.
That's good. I have to get this game soon!
I just finished GoW last night. I probably will go back and plat it later.
I platinumed it.
It's sad that we live in an era where this is a good statistic. Looking at trophy lists you'd think most gamers suck at videogames. Still, that the ratio of completion for God of War is higher than most is a testament to how engaged players are. Given that the game has sold millions that means millions of players have beaten this game.
It took me about 5 weeks since release to finish. I believe this number will increase since many got it but can't finish it directly. And they shouldn't. Take the time and enjoy. It has enough content for weeks. I believe the stat will increase a bit.
