The ending was also deemed better than the finales to Portal, Final Fantasy VII and God of War.

Can't be Mass Effect 2 because Mass Effect's ending is better, by quite a bit.

I was really into ME2's ending...until the boss fight. I mean, the first time was cool, but then after you play it a few more times, it's just kind of cheesy.

Mass Effect's ending is just all kinds of awesomeness. It never loses the awe-factor for me.

Hufandpuf2326d ago

ME1 was better than ME2 in terms of story.

hellzsupernova2326d ago

No it is not better then Portal 2 ending no freaking way

one2thr2325d ago

Yeah that ending had going like "OHHHH!!!! I JUST OWNED!!!!! YOU SON!!!..... OHHHH *waving hands in air* lol

iamtehpwn2326d ago

More like Final Fantasy X. Now that was an incredibly ending.

i dont know whether or not to take this seriously, laugh or puke...

badz1492326d ago (Edited 2326d ago )

definitely the later

inFAMOUS 2 good ending is awesome and touching as well!

kneon2326d ago

Don't take it seriously, and feel free to laugh, puke or both.

We've seen plenty of statistics that show as little as 10% of people actually finish each game, but I would bet that didn't stop the other 90% from voting on their favorite games anyway.

It was decided by a gamer poll. Take it with a giant grain of salt. It was a COD game, the franchise with the most players. That's it.

Black Ops ending was good, but not the best at all.

Majin-vegeta2326d ago

Lol wtf??hell even the Pokemon games have better endings than this crappy series.

exsturminator012326d ago

Lol, thinking back...yeah, Pokemon's ending was much more fulfilling than the random sub thing at the end of BOps.

AnotherProGamer2325d ago

Pong's ending is better than blops

Blacktric2326d ago

Metal Gear Solid 4 for me. Kojima did the impossible and tied the every loose end with an exceptional finale. I can't think of anything better than that...

darksied2325d ago

This. No question, the best ending I can think of.

snipes1012325d ago

I know I'm gonna get a ton of disagrees but an hour and fifteen minute cutscene (or around there) was just too much.

Love the games (played all but the third) but Kojima just got out of hand with those cutscenes in the fourth.

Sony3602325d ago

In an award that was decided by a poll, the franchise with the most fanboys will win, not the game with the best ending.

Hence, Black Ops wins.

That's a bloody big call...

Anon19742326d ago

Ugh. I hated everything about the predictable campaign in black ops, especially the ending. I'm generally not shy about admitting I like Call of Duty, but Black Ops was a low point in the series when it came to story telling. I'm not going to go into details spoiling the ending, but did anyone not know that ending was coming by half way into the game?

There's no way Halo Retch should have been up there either. Faceless characters, run from point a to point b missions over and over - and then an ending that just flat out kicked you in the balls. "Hooray, you finished the game. But you FAIL!"
Because that's what I want after spending a day and a half finishing a single player campaign, a big ole "Everyone's dead. It wasn't in vain somehow. Thanks for coming out." Worst of the Halo games, in my opinion.

Now Grim Fandango. There was one of the best game endings of all time. Who did they poll for this? Nothing but 12 year old american kids?

BattleAxe2326d ago

Black Ops is the yellow stain of the CoD series, followed up by MW3 which is the brown stain of the series. Gamers and the gaming journalists have become just plain stupid.

theEx1Le2326d ago (Edited 2326d ago )

You completely missed the point of the Halo Reach ending if thats the way you actually perceived it. Black ops i can't comment because i found the first few missions so typically Treyach tedious that I didnt bother with the campaign. My vote for best ending would definetly have to be FFX, that game had an epic ending to a great story.

Mustang300C20122326d ago


Reach was a prequal from Halo: Combat Evolved. This was well known fact how the game would end. If you ever read the novels then it would tie in a lot.

Liefx2326d ago

Thats weird... Blops was my favourite storywise (besides mw1)

aviator1892326d ago

Better than the endings of Reach, Ocarina of Time, Portal, FF 7, and God of War??

That's just, what's the word I'm looking for??

I'll just leave this - >:/

CoLD FiRE2326d ago

Seriously, I mean I finished Black Ops and it was very forgettable that I don't even remember the ending and trust me when I say I have got quite a solid memory. That says a lot about how poor the ending was.

OcularVision2325d ago

Fact: More people finished the Black Ops campaign than any of those other games.

floetry1012326d ago (Edited 2326d ago )

I enjoy Call of Duty from time to time, but goddamn, did they take this poll at an Elementary School? It beat out Metal Gear Solid 4's ending?

Solid_Snake372326d ago

What a joke.... Christ..... they probably surveyed 10 year olds

SaffronCurse2326d ago (Edited 2326d ago )

Ughh kids these days... Killzone had a much better ending than Black ops...but to be honest many other games kick the $hit out of Black ops and Call of duty as a whole.

Liefx2326d ago

Which Killzone? I love KZ but number 3 had one of the worst endings I had ever seen.

1 and 2 were good though.

STONEY42325d ago (Edited 2325d ago )

The parts leading up to the ending of Killzone 3 are fine, but you're right, then ending cutscene itself is awful. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but it kinda awkwardly and suddenly ends. And the wave from the bomb is terribly rendered for a scene supposed to be that important. It really feels like it was slopped together right at the deadline or something.

Killzone 2s ending was alot more fulfilling and had a more epic feel.

TekoIie2325d ago

I felt that KZ3s story was a lot better THROUGHOUT the game than other KZs. Sure ending was a little disappointing but i loved it from start to finish.

SaffronCurse2325d ago

Both endings were fine, i just felt that Kz3 should have been longer..much longer but the campaign was very good in general.

Liefx2325d ago

@Pekolie Yeah but have story and no ending is like having sex without climaxing, sure it's entertaining for a bit but then you're stuck with sore balls.
