So, earlier today I saw a saw a post that essentially was about why people dislike Connor. I disagreed about why, and began to think that one reason that many people may not like Connor, among the many, is that they didn't finish the game due to its flaws. I was then reminded that on the Xbox One, we can see how many people have an achievement. My hypothesis was incorrect that less people finished AC3, and I'd like to share the results, because it's really interesting.

Below is a list of games, achievement rarity, achievement name, and how you get the achievement. From my understanding, this is only for people with Xbox Live profiles who have signed on and have played the game. SPOILERS

Check this out (article from ars technica): http://bit.ly/2rlLNCs

This article is about steam in general, so nothing specific about AC; but it shows that the ratio of games that are actually run, at least once (let alone finished), to games that are owned is a little over 60%. Among players, in turn, roughly one fourth seem to persevere for total durations that are meaningful for large games like AC.

I guess we have to thank digital distribution and frequent sales for such numbers. It's a pretty bizarre economy that I can't wrap my head around; but at least valve seems to be flourishing very well financially, doing what they're doing.
