PUBG is driven entirely by hype. I'll be happy when it falls off the list. No EARLY ACCESS / CROWDFUNDED / UNFINISHED title should have those kinds of numbers; especially above proven titles like GTA5, CS:GO, DS3, W3, and ACO.

Why? If people find a game entertaining, what does it matter what arbitrary state the game is in? After all, the term "finished" is a bit nebulous these days. All of the games you mentioned as "proven titles" have received plenty of post-launch updates. Witcher 3, great as it was, still received a number of significant updates that overhauled fundamental things like UI, balance and controls. If the game were truly "finished" at launch, it wouldn't have needed those. Conversely, there are a lot of early access titles that are polished and substantial enough to qualify as complete. Subnautica, The Forest and Distance are good examples of that.

Also, I'm not sure why you lumped "crowdfunded" in with "early access" and "unfinished." There are plenty of crowdfunded games that aren't in early access. Divinity: Original Sin 2, for example. I know you have an irrational hatred of crowdfunding but try to be a little more reasonable here.
