A survey conducted by for the most and least completed games has left us surprised at the sheer absurdity of it all.

The survey takes only single player mode into contention, and has found that gamers have chosen to complete Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 the most times over other more story oriented games like Fallout 3, Assassin’s Creed and Alan Wake. Though Mass Effect 2 came in second, it finds itself in an entirely opposite extreme with the amount of players who completed Red Dead Redemption were to be the least. In fact, gamers completed Battlefield: Bad Company and Trials HD more than Rockstar’s classic which has won numerous Game of the Year awards from publications world wide.

It makes us wonder if stories in ‘true’ open-world games are least cared for. Mass Effect 2 was, by and large, a linear game with most of the exploration replaced by small mini-games. GTA IV and RDR were among the least completed games, suggesting that having distractions from the main story somewhere looses players interest in completing the game . It also makes us wonder if GTA IV and RDR would had been as much of a success they have been if it had no multiplayer component.
