Some games only take five hours, others take 20 hours or more, yet there's one thing that will stay with you longer than anything else: the ending. A good ending can lift a good game into great territory, while an OK game can suddenly seem a whole lot better. So why is it that so many games end on such bum notes?"
"Firstly, I present you with an example of how to do it right: Call of Duty 4. I'm not going to spoil things for you, but the ending will live with me forever and CoD4 will always be the game I bring up when talking about great endings. The guys at Infinity Ward just nailed it, not only in the stunning final moments that had me gawping at everyone in the room to make sure they had seen what just happened, but also the entirety of the last level. And it didn't end there, with more brilliance during and after the credits."
