With the aftermath to the Lost finale still brewing, we at Dealspwn thought it was a perfect time to remember our favourite, and not so favourite, videogame endings, from the emotional and the exhilarating, to the downright bad and ugly.
Playing as raiden in MGS2:SOL (original copy) killed the experience let alone the ending. I was hoping he would get killed off somehow by solidus. Well maybe he'll get killed in the MGS spin-off (crossed fingers)
Raiden is an awesome character, and a new rookie perspective is exactly what MGS2 needed to properly introduce The Patriots.
The patriots could of been introduced without raiden , he wasn't needed . Let alone play as him half the game. Im guessing your thinking raiden is awsome now cause he's a cybernetic ninja with attitude now, I don't care how much hideo sugar coated him in MGS4 or his production will sugar coat him in his own upcoming spin-off, he'll always be remembered in my eyes as like you said a rookie. A rookie who was created to attract a more audience at the time. IMO of course.
It would be impossible for Raiden to live up and fill Snake's boots, people think he's crap because they compare him to snake but don't compare and he isnt that bad! About him dieing.. SPOILER-- BTW he won't get killed off as far as I know as the game focuses on how he became a cyberninja and the period before MGS4, as at the end of MGS4 he becomes normal again and settles down no so hes not a cyberninja? So he cant die otherwise MGS4 can't have happened..
He had a long dialogue with him crying like a little *****. Seriously hated the game for Raiden replacing Snake before even half of the game. Not to mention the ending sucked. It was a random wrap up out of nowhere. Snake appears out of nowhere next to him?! I mean, WTF was that?! Good thing MGS3 made everything so much better. Best ending ever.
I liked MGS2's ending. Probably because of its originality. The best ending of all time for me, however, is Star Control 2. Anyone who has beaten it will agree...
You could also get to play as Snake in that spin-off
Why is everyone hating on God of War 3 ending it thought it was good wont say is the the best ending ever but only because they said they changed the ending people are getting butt hurt for it... Also with MGS2 might not be the best ending but it was ok kind of left everyeone wondering whats going to happen but isnt that the point of endings?
I hated the GoW3 ending. It was the worst ending of the three for sure. At the end of GoW1&2 I was literally roaring like a mad man with excitment but GoW3 I was left with a "wtf?!" moment. It was anticlimactic for me. Don't know what they plan to do with DLC but the game it's self should have had an ending that pumped you up like the other two. MGS2's ending was incredible and I loved it. The disappointment of Raiden as the main Xter wore off longer before the end of the game.
Good endings FFVII Klonoa Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Bad endings Bioshock Fahrenheit Alan Wake
Resistance 2 has the ultimate WTF cliff hanger... seriously, was that a f***ing planet?! Dont watch if you havent played the game!!! "Forgive me sir. It was an honor." http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Where the hell is Mafia? You all failed
Mass Effect 1 and 2 should both be on the "Best Ending" list. I mean, the ending is really up to the player and it puts a lot of pressure on you to develop relationships with your squad and to be pretty badass in battle. IMO ME1's ending was more epic than ME2, but after I beat ME2, I couldn't help but want to play the next game...right away.
Cod: MW2 ending = BAD! Cod: WaW ending = GOOD! >_>
I was very disappointed with the ending of God of War 3.. Also, the original vanilla ending of Fallout 3 (what where they thinking?!)
I have been gaming for 20 years and I have to say the best game ending I have ever seen was from Final Fantasy 8
Yea, that FF8 was a keeper, i still have that "eyes on me" song stuck in my head! You know which FF ending I liked even better?! FF2 baby!!
IMO the second best Final Fantasy game there is! FFX ending was slightly better than FFVIII though. Kind of threw me a curve at the end.
Yup, best feel good ending after all that crap happened but you kept wondering about Squall and it made it seem like he died... but a shooting star in the sky...
I don't understand how a cliffhanger seems to automatically grant a game a "bad" ending. For example, Halo 2's ending. Yeah, it was sudden and unexpected, but it was intended to be a cliffhanger. Those who did not see that Halo would become a huge franchise with sequels are ignorant and must understand this is a business. Having a cliffhanger at the end of Halo 2 worked exactly the way it was made for: to keep the consumer wanting more. Any game with a cliffhanger ending is like this. It doesn't mean its bad. Developers see success when fans are raving for the next game and that's what a sequel is supposed to do.
I loved PREY ending. near the last stage when that awesome music kicked in,and right in the end when that woman came to collect you, wheres prey 2 ? aaaaggh.
i hated fallout 3s ending.loved the game,i hope fallout new Vegas will be 100 times better!
