Number 1 worst ending for me in recent memory was Rage. That was an awful ending. The game pretty much just stops and credits, it was almost like they didn't know how to end it or ran out of time to develope it.

Mine would be Kane and Lynch 2. If you beat it, you know what I'm talking about

Or Mgs 5 ground zeros. The combination of its length and abrupt ending was a giant middle finger, even though it's not a full game

The K&L2 ending music, just O_O. It was clearly set up for a direct sequel, and even though the game apparently sold quite well, we haven't heard any murmurings about a sequel since then. I love the K&L lore and such, but I won't pretend those games didn't suffer from quite glaring gameplay and design issues at times.

Rage ending was basically a sudden credits in the middle of shooting bad guys.

Killzone 3. The general story/storytelling of Killzone 3 was pretty good as it introduce a mature political and survival sub plot which really fleshed out the story. But the ending felt rushed. It did feel like they ran out of time and made a quick decision in how to end it. The ending also made future Killzone titles a little less believable

All the Killzones, from start to finish. But yeah 3 was the worst.

Well Killzone 1 and 2 were okay. They just didn't have a strong emphasis on story which is why I wouldn't call them nor their endings offensively bad. Killzone 4 was an illogical mess from start to finish. In the context of the rest of the game the ending wasn't offensively bad. It fitted well within the illogical story

killzone story is piss poor.

I would read this but I'm not clicking through 10 pages full of ads.

You are welcome.

Thanks Blacktric.

Number 1 should have definitely been Rage. I thought the game glitched until I realized that was the end lol

Dragons Dogma as number 1 is a joke. That was a pretty solid ending to me. Way better than most games nowadays anyway.

If you decide to put God of War 2 on here, how can you NOT put Halo 2? One cliffhanger is offensive but another isn't? I thought GOW2 ending like that was epic, and they delivered on it with part 3.

God Of War 2 is n°7? Really?
I mean, sure. I was kinda pissed when I saw it and realised it was a cliffhanger, but that's just because I was so hyped for that epic set-up and they delivered with GOW3!

Seriously, GOW2 should not be on there

whybag1508d ago

Thanks, was just about to post asking for a list. Agree with GoW II being out of place. It was a bit annoying to have a blatant cliffhanger like that, but I was instantly pumped for 3, and the intro for 3 was far beyond anything I imagined possible.

Blacktric1509d ago

The listed "ending" for Dragon's Dogma isn't the end. The ending comes after you defeat the Seneschal, not the dragon Grigori.

And to think that this troglodyte still has a job... Pathetic.

rextraordinaire1508d ago

Also from the article : "Dragon's Dogma is insultingly easy"...


That guy never explored the crater. Meaning that guy never finished the game, not even once.

That made the author lose every point left on his gamer card. Seriously, what a load of bull...

isa_scout1508d ago

Oh snap, I completely forgot about Fable, but I'd put Fable 3 in the list instead of Fable 2. I remember after I beat Fable 3 all my villagers were just lying dead in the streets and I just sat there thinking, " Well, what the hell do I do now."
