Among BioWare's current-generation role-playing franchises, Mass Effect and Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2 has the best completion percentage, BioWare announced during a GDC Europe panel yesterday.

Among BioWare's current-generation role-playing franchises, Mass Effect and Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2 has the best completion percentage, BioWare announced during a GDC Europe panel yesterday.

BioWare's director of online development, Fernando Melo, presented a graph showing the completion percentages for the studio's games. In this case, "completion percentage" refers to the proportion of a game's player base that saw the story all the way through to the end. Here are the statistics, according to BioWare:

  • Mass Effect - 40 percent
  • Mass Effect 2 - 56 percent
  • Mass Effect 3 - 42 percent
  • Dragon Age: Origins - 36 percent
  • Dragon Age 2 - 41 percent

According to Melo, Mass Effect 2 saw a bump in the lead-up to the release of Mass Effect 3 this March, as players finished the campaign so they'd have a save file ready for the completion of the trilogy. While the numbers above may seem disheartening, especially for story-driven games like the ones BioWare makes, they far exceed the industry average of 25 percent.
