‘Resident Evil Village’ is the most completed game of 2021

'Metroid Dread', 'It Takes Two' and more weren't far behind

Resident Evil Village is apparently the most-completed game of 2021, though it faced tight competition from Nintendo‘s Metroid Dread.

According to HowLongToBeat (thanks, EuroGamer) which gathers votes from gamers across a variety of categories, Resident Evil Village received a hefty 2,500 votes in the ‘Most Completed’ category. This means that if the player-led survey is anything to go by, Resident Evil Village was this year’s most-completed game.

That being said, Capcom‘s horror game only pulled in around 300 votes more than Metroid Dread, which came in at a close second with 2,200 votes. Finishing up the top five, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and It Takes Two were neck and neck in third and fourth place respectively, while Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury took fifth.


With so many players flocking to complete those titles, it may come as no surprise to hear that all five of the aforementioned games won places on our 20 best games of 2021 list – and many made appearances at The Game Awards earlier in the month.

While It Takes Two only came in fourth on the ‘Most Completed’ list, it took home the most awards at this month’s The Game Awards, including the prestigious Game Of The Year award. Resident Evil Village was also represented by Maggie Robertson, who won Best Performance for her role as Lady Dimitrescu in the game.
