It is often the case that gamers get a game, spend a few hours with it and then never come back without even knowing the end of the story. How does the game world know that? Trophies on Sony's Playstation system provide information, for example. And they also reveal that Final Fantasy 7 remake by Square Enix has captivated an amazing number of players to the end.

It's no secret that many gamers get games in sales or as part of gamepasses and subscriptions, which they then put aside relatively quickly. This can be seen, among other things, from the number of players who received a trophy for completing the story of a game, for example on Sony's Playstation system. And if a game only appears on this platform, then the system's percentage of how many players won the final trophy is a pretty good indicator of how "well" a game was actually played.

Game Revolution authors, for example, once took Playstation games with a big focus on the story, only to find that Nathan Drake's last Uncharted 4 adventure wasn't even completed by half of the buyers while Quantic was Dreams Detroit: Become Human at the time of writing Article from Game Revolution was ended by more than 60 percent of the players. The people of Dual shockers have a look at the final trophy of Final Fantasy 7 Remake and lo and behold: although the new JRPG from Square Enix has only been available for almost two months, 48.6 percent of the players have already won the final trophy at the end of chapter 18.

Of course, it is impossible to say whether the fans had more time to play due to corona restrictions – a run through FF7R already takes 30 to 40 hours – or whether the quality of the remake is much more conclusive. Given the sales success of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, a combination of both arguments cannot be ruled out.
