This Generation's Most Satisfying Endings

Carl B. of iNintendo.net writes, "A game's ending, in most cases, can either make or break the overall experience for the player. Unfortunately, this generation has been filled with endings that aren't up to par with the rest of the title, leaving players with an empty feeling that hurts their perception of the game. Nevertheless, there have been plenty of titles to release this generation that featured fantastic endings." (3DS, Disney Epic Mickey, Nintendo DS, PC, Portal 2, PS3, Red Dead Redemption, The Last Story, Wii, Xbox 360)

I love the Portal games. The ending was very exciting.

Portal 2's ending did not satisfy me because the song was disappointing compared to the one in the the first game's credits. I think Portal 1's ending should be on the list :P

Super Mario Galaxy 2's ending after 242 stars however, was the ultimate satisfaction ;) 10 out of 10. A complete masterpiece!

I would love to see The Last Story come to the U.S., it looks like a great game

I am not a fan of the Red Dead Redemption ending. The build up was poor. I almost gave up before the ending because it got very stale. In theory it would be nice but ,like films, have to keep things interesting. This then ruined what could have been a good ending. I was satisfied it ended because the build up dragged on

It felt like it was put in there for the sake of it

<Spoiler>

The best character Rockstar created and they killed him. How did he know that the government would stop going after Abbi and Jack....he didn't know for sure if they wern't going to kill them after they killed him. They should of made it so they killed Abbi and Jack...while John, a broken man, should of went of the run, least then you could of had Red Dead 3 set a few years after RDR......I mean who really likes Jack, he annoyned the crap out of me

<spoilers>

The endings build up was to make it seem like everything was going to be okay for John and his family but in the end he couldn't be redeemed for his past actions by the government so he was killed. The way some of the dialog go throughout the game between John and the marshals foreshadow this if you every play it again. They say things like "once a criminal, always a criminal" and things like that. I noticed it on my second play.

The game felt grounded with the ending imo since that was the only way it of went to from the start without deviating from its tone and mood.

"The endings build up was to make it seem like everything was going to be okay". That is fine and all and like I said on paper it seems like a good idea but in a game you can't do that. playing those last missions were more of a chore. I already done a lot of the things at the beginning of the game. For me it made me careless about what happened right at the end. I was so fed up I was wishing it to end. You have to keep the momentum up in games otherwise things get stale especially after tens of hours playing it

Rage...oh wait. No. Ignore that.

I quite like the combined endings of the GTA 4 saga. I also liked the ending of God of War 3.

What was so great of gow 3 ending. He stabs himself and the whole world is destroyed

If you're going to just type the ending put spoiler alerts for anyone who hasn't played it. And if you'd played the other God of War games you might understand how poignant the ending is.

great game but story wise not so great compared to others. Ill wait for the sequel to see what they do and everyone knows what happens and its no big deal

Both Red Dead Redemption and Portal 2 had great endings,but they're just two examples of many great endings.LA Noire,Uncharted 2,InFamous 2 (both),Metal Gear Solid 4,God Of War:Ghost Of Sparta/Chains Of Olympus,COD4 and many many more.

Castlevania Lords Of Shadow. Best ending I've seen in long long years! Enough said.
