According to results released by IGN’s sister site HowLongToBeat, Resident Evil Village managed to beat its competition to become the most complete game of 2021.
As per Metrics published by the website for 2021 (based on user-submitted data and therefore may not be representative of the world as a whole), Capcom’s most recent entry into the survival horror series has completed more than any other game this year.
Despite being high on the list, Village faced stiff competition. The game narrowly managed to supplant Nintendo’s Metroid Dread, which marked a popular return for the Samus-run franchise. Other notable entries on the list included Insomniac’s Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart (third) and Hazelight Studios’ It Takes Two (fourth), which was recently named Game of the Year at The Game Awards.
While Resident Evil Village was possibly the most complete game based on the data released by HowLongToBeat, it was also the second most lagging game over the entire period as it was just marginally pushed out of the category by NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 – maybe because people always do Version 1.22474487138 is still being played through. (Sorry, not sorry.)
