Black Ops Is The "Fastest Finished" Video Game
We've seen polls for all sorts of things. But this might be a first, and it's worthy of discussion.
A new poll was conducted at video game comparison marketplace website Playr2.com; it asked gamers to estimate how long it took them to complete single-player adventures for a title. In this way, they took data from 1,671 people and compiled a list of the "fastest-finished" games. Check out the summary, which shows that Call of Duty: Black Ops is at the top of the list: only 2 days on average was required to finish the campaign. And here's the Top 10 fastest completed titles according to the research:
- 1. Call of Duty Black Ops – 2 days
- 2. Terminator Salvation – 2.5 days
- 3. Resident Evil 5 – 3.2 days
- 4. God of War 2 – 3.3 days
- 5. Uncharted – 3.8 days
- 6. Prince of Persia Forgotten Sands – 4.1
- 7. Assassin’s Creed II – 5 days
- 8. Uncharted – 6.6 days
- 9. Metal Gear Solid 3 – 6.8 days
- 10. Grand Theft Auto IV – 8.2 days
Said Playr2.com founder Simon Kilby:
"Games can be incredibly addictive once you start playing them, so with this research we really wanted to look into which games gamers had completed the fastest. Given the huge amount of hype that surrounded Call of Duty Black Ops’ release last year it wasn’t surprising to see it at the top of the fastest completion chart, as many would have played this until completion as soon as they’d unboxed it."
It would help to know which of those Uncharted titles are where, but we get the idea. Also, it's interesting to see super long games on the list, like ACII and GTAIV; that sorta proves how hooked gamers can get on those awesome open-world sandbox titles. We wouldn't be surprised if inFamous wasn't far down on the list.
