While these cult games are not considered difficult, it is quite surprising that very few players have made it to the end. But why ? Flame, weariness, lengths?
If a game is considered a classic, that doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone who got their hands on it has finished it. Sometimes, even, quite the contrary. We can talk about Sekiro, for example, which was voted game of the year 2019, but which was completed by very few players around the world. However, Sekiro is a game known for its difficulty, so this low rate is easily explained. On the other hand, the games that we will discuss here are not considered to be difficult, and yet very few players have managed to complete them. Why ? We will come back to it here.

With over 35 hours of lifespan and dozens of twists and turns in the storytelling, it took a hell of a lot of investment to complete it. Maybe that’s the reason why only 10% of players have completed Final Fantasy VI.
