The Last Of Us Part 2 may have been an extremely divisive game leading up to its release, thanks largely in part to massive in-game spoilers being leaked online (and the reaction to said spoilers) but those who did purchase Naughty Dog’s highly anticipated action-adventure game are enjoying it to the fullest. Literally.
According to Nicoloto Manaloto of Ungeek, The Last of Us Part 2‘s completion rate sits at an impressive 58%, a high percentage compared to other prestigious, triple-A Playstation 4 titles such as Horizon Zero Dawn, Ghost of Tsushima and Red Dead Redemption II. The game’s completion rate is based on the data relating specifically to the “What I Had to Do” trophy, which is gifted to players who have completed the game’s story mode all the way through at least once.

Despite there being outcry for some of the narratives made in The Last of Us Part 2 after the spoilers were leaked, apparently those who have actually played the game have been fully engaged and thoroughly absorbed, as The Last of Us Part 2‘s completion rate is higher than most other big-name PS4 games by a considerable margin. Even universally acclaimed games such as Ghost of Tsushima and The Witcher 3 pale in comparison in completion rate at 38.2% and 26% respectively.
Could this mean all the uproar over the Ellie and Abby leaks were blown out of proportion? Can the The Last of Us Part 2 completion rate be attributed to the game’s gripping narrative staying consistently entertaining throughout the entire game, becoming even more interesting the longer you play?
Another factor to consider is that compared to The Witcher 3, Ghost of Tsushima and Red Dead Redemption II, The Last of Us Part 2 is much more straightforward and doesn’t offer as much in the area of side missions and extraneous objectives.
