The year 2021 ends and, with this, a course marked by dozens of premieres in video games from large and small studios is ended, added to not a few delays as a result of COVID-19. Twelve months in which the community has finished and abandoned titles along the way. From the How Long To Beat portal, a community space in which users submit the completion time of titles to obtain approximate averages, we can now see the 2021 statistics. These have been the most finished and abandoned games of the year.
