Resident Evil Village is the most popular title for players

If the Game of The Year represents an award that can more or less be shared with the community, the statistics can hardly be contested. And it is precisely the case of Resident Evil Village, which according to the metrics of HowLongtoBeat, a site that deals with tracking the completion percentages of various video games is the most finished game of 2021.

In a world where video games are barely finished, according to public objectives of the players and the jokes on the backlog, Resident Evil Village is instead the title that has conquered the user the most on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. The cross-platform nature has certainly helped the Capcom game to become the first place, but it is still a very precise signal: net of new IPs (such as Returnal) and great returns (Ratchet & Clank and Halo above all), it seems that the public is is more focused on a game that has an already well-tested formula.

In addition to Resident Evil Village, the ranking still holds some notable surprises. In second and third position we find two exclusives, namely Metroid Dread (silver medal) and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (bronze medal). The GOTY of TGA 2021 instead ranks in fourth position, while as tail lights we find NieR Replicant, The Medium and Little Nightmares II, respectively in eighth, ninth and position. On the other hand, games of the caliber of Ghost of Tsushima: Definitive Edition and Returnal of Housemarque do not find space in the ranking, perhaps limited by the platform and the particular genre to which they belong.
