The industry average rate for completing games is a measly 20 – 25 percent, can you believe that? I look at my stack of games and I see Borderlands, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, EndWar, and a whole other bunch of games I’ve never beaten, and I start to get it.
It’s impressive then, that a staggering 72 percent of people that played Quantic Dream’s Heavy Rain also finished the game. David Cage, the game’s director, revealed this statistic at his panel during GDC this week.
Given the game’s page-turner approach, and having no way to strictly fail, perhaps this was to be expected. Regardless, the team should give themselves a pat on the back before revealing what there next project is. It’s about time.
