The Daily Grind: Are you among the 10% who finish what they start?


Last week, CNN published an article declaring that video game attrition is significantly higher than we might have suspected. According to the post, 90% of gamers don't finish the video games they start.

Whatever you consider the "end" of your MMOs, do you ever get there? Are you among the 10% of gamers who finish what they start?
