NowGamer: We chart six of the best (and worst) game endings
Jurassic Park on SNES. I completed it, I was proud of the accomplishment because it had no save function and had to be completed in one stting, essentially. Then you get this http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Fallout 3 had a surprisingly emotional and amazing ending. It's a good moral story about how humans have advanced and become more aware over thousands of years yet our main focus of destroying other people and nations hasn't become any less prevalent or barbaric. Good stuff.
F3 could have done a LOT better on the presentation of the endings. A bunch of screen caps with a voice-over isn't that impressive at all.
My favorite is undoubtedly MGS3. One of the most epic things I have ever seen in any form of entertainment. MGS4 was right up there with it though.
The lack of MGS3 in this arrticle is sad. MGS3 is my favourite ending ever. That ending cutscene with the voiceover by EVA is so tearjerking. :(
I agree, MGS3 and MGS4 should be on there. When Naked Snake killed Boss and you had to press the button to put a bullet to her skull. Then Ocelot still chases after you unexpectedly. Solid and Liquid Ocelot fights.
Killing The Boss made me kind of sad. And all what happens after that was amazing too. Drake' Fortune should be on this list just because it has an amazing stiry and a couple of great twists near the end.
MGS3's ending was the best ending in a game I have experienced. uncharted ending is just plain in comparison.
Both 1 and 2 were awesome
I like that - and very about Fallout 3s endin I said 2 myself *Hitman Blood Money* b4 i even looked at the list - when i completed Blood Money 4 the 1st time i didnt know Mr 47 could get back up and kill every1 in the room the game just finished and he was dead - i sold it the very next day in utter disgust - then 6 months later sum dude at work told me about it - i was WELL pissed
"Final Fantasy VII (PS2)" wtf?
Exactly what I was thinking.
None of the MGS series??? Come on, you definitely got your money's worth with those!
I was also disappointed by the MGS4 Ending, how can you End the Story of one of Gaming biggest/ best Frachises so horrible ? MGS3/ MGS1had the best Endings Imo
The ending to MGS3 was awesome. Best one out of the series for me.
I really liked the MGS4 ending, i would put it in my "Greatest endings" list.
Agreed. MGS4`s story and gameplay in general wasn`t as good as MGS1 and MGS3, if you ask me (it was better than MGS2 though). I suspect a lot of those how claim MGS4 is best game they`ve ever played, havn`t even played MGS3, let alone MGS1. I`m not saying it`s impossible to think MGS4 is the best of the bunch if you have played them all though. I`m not saying MGS4 is a bad game either, it just didn`t meet the standards of MGS1 and MGS3 for me.
i thought the ending for mgs4 was brilliant, but i also loved the endings for mgs 3 and 1. See, you can play the older games and still like mgs4's ending
Another World on the Amiga.
Good choice. Every bit of the story in that game is superbly handled though not just the ending. Most modern games are nowhere near as cinematic as that old 2D Amiga, SNES, Mega drive platformer, what's up with that?
One thing I absolutely hate about this contemporary generation is proliferation of the cliffhanger ending. This is why, for the most part, I enjoy stories more in RPGs (W and J) and mostly Japanese games because neither seem too eager to stiff you on story. Many Western devs are content to sell a game in instalments, which I personally find unpalatable.
Crisis Core Kingdom Hearts 2 Metal Gear Solid 4
KH2 = best game ever made, imo
To this day I find the final fantasy VIII ending to be the best one. yeh the story is better in FFVII but the ending in VIII is unmatched. It's artistic, emotional, gorgeous to look at and ties in with other parts of the games narrative superbly.
I love FFVII but hate the FFVII hype. The ending of VII doesn't even touch the ending of VIII.
And yet neither of them come close to FFX's ending http://www.youtube.com/watc...
FFX had the best ending imo out of all of the final fantasys, or so i thought until FFX-2 pretty much undid it if you got a perfect game.
xbots were playing gaylo/gays of lag and the final boss is about to die, just one more bullet.. then BAM.. RRoD! game over (well, for 3-4 weeks until the sucker gets his warranty replacement) the best ending is the happy one everytime i get a massage.
Mate i wouldnt brag about you letting your mum give you a rub down with a happy ending on the internet.......... its kinda............ wrong.
wat are u 12 ? bringing mom jokes to the table how clitche
FF X always sticks in my head when I think of great endings, IMO I think it has the best ending of all the final fantasies,, God of War and Metal Gear solid series have never let me down in any of their respective entries .
fallout 3 had a great ending , it could iv been better but it was a really good ending to an amazing game .
you can sit there and say that out of a great game with lots of gameplay, good story for the most part, lots of side missions, that its ending was satisfactory? wow man, low expectations. They could have at least made the final battle hard, even on its hardest the game is a bit too easy.
Fallout 1 and 2 had better endings. You could actually clock the game in completely different ways that had nothing to do with each other. Clocking them one way may take 10 hours and another way 50. Depending on what you do in Fallout 3 you get different still images at the end. I find that pretty lame. On another note Star Ocean 2 had some very groundbreaking story elements and endings. If you do things differently you can have a standard party of 3 characters with 2 others never entering your party and only being seen at a glance. The characters affect what happens within the story so you have a multitude of possible party combinations and story scenes. Imagine if in FFVII having Barret at the start meant you couldn't have Vincent at the end and never see his backstory.
Where the fuk is mgs3?
Where the hell is Klonoa for the PSX?
i wish "Portal" was on their for a good ending...
Definitely in my top ten.
FFVII? Really? That game has a sh1t ending, and it pales in comparison to FFVIII, FFVI, FFIX and FFX.
FF8 was crap next to 7. It wasn't bad... but it wasn't 7. 10... that's a different story.
Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy x I think these were pretty good.....
GOD OF WAR 2 n HEAVENLY SWORD.
I see I'm not the only one wondering why MGS3 isn't on there.
