Do you always finish games that you buy?

How often do you complete a game that you've purchased?

  1. I always complete a game if I’ve purchased it, no matter if I like it or not (80%+)

    Poll time! I’m interested in knowing how many of you tend to always complete a game that you’ve bought. Perhaps you often "try before you buy" and never finish the demo? Or are you the kind that carefully selects each title before committing?

    I usually grab premium games with instinct as long as it’s below $20.
    I finish about 1/3 of them, while the other 2/3 are something I don’t even bother to keeping on my devises.

    I am kinda leaning towards researching/waiting before buying though, with recent pricey (for mobile) games having many quality issues like bugs, unbalanced mechanics, and the lack of control designed for mobile/removal of the control support that were present on other platforms.

    I don’t touch freemium. They are filthy.

    I dont finish many games, i'm quite an 'app hoarder' as i buy games week in week out and then start playing those. I do go back to old games but i dont focus on one game to finish it

    Rarely touch freemium, second i see a games out and its free i normally avoid. If its free and theres one IAP to remove ad's or unlock the game thats great. Anything else and games with IAP's such as £99.99 for tons of gems etc i avoid 100%, just disgusting to even have those types of IAP's

    Enjoying Apple Arcade as it doesnt have any freemium evils

    Interesting replies! We made Untold as a free-to-try with a single purchase to unlock the full game. I think the model works very well on iOS but less so on Android (getting some angry reviews from players who missed the fact that you can't play the full game for free). Might be because it says "Free" in Google Play while it says "Install (contains in-app purchases)", or something like that, in App Store. Anyway, I think around a fourth of everyone who's bought our game finishes it, so the poll results seems fairly aligned with my experience.

    I prefer wasting every dollar I earn, so naturally I play games for about 10 minutes and then never play them again.

    I know this is a gaming forum and all but this sounds a bit irresponsible and you might regret this later. Hopefully it’s just a joke.

    So you like to just throw money for games without even playing them to the fullest?

    I like to complete game achievements, most I complete, when there are impossible achievements I stop...
