ME3's ending was brilliant, quit complaining.

Sonic 06 was already terrible from the start, but the ending was one of the most enraging things I've ever seen. Sonic, Shadow and Silver all beat the tits out of Solaris and then all of a sudden Sonic and Elise are standing in front of the flame that is Solaris's true form. Elise blows out the fucking flame, completely resetting the entirety of existence. Meaning none of the bullshit I went through really happened. Fuck.

Yeah. I submit the ending to Final Fantasy 1--long, boring and badly translated.

NES endings were brilliant because they were bad. It's like the worse they were, the more entertaining they were to watch. They also often had a simplicity that new games don't. Every ending was like a creative experiment.

I dont remember which game it is but theres a game where the protagonist turns back time to the beginning of the game so that the events of the game never took place and everything restarts.

The problem is that Bethesda doesn't really improve because the fanbase accepts their shortcomings. You could say The Elder Scrolls is about walking the road and not about reaching the end, but Mass Effect has this philosophy too and here everyone throws a fit over the ending.

One of the big differences though is Bethesda games come with a huge modding community to the point where in general if you don't like something about the game you can either change it to something you do like yourself or find someone already doing it, if you buy a Bethesda game your generally buying a platform that you can find a helluva lot of extra stuff for. Granted Bethesda should still learn but that I believe is why people are generally more accepting (plus the journey is generally fairly awesome and again highly customizable)

As for endings I feel were pretty terrible... hmmm hard to say I forget most... FF13-2 definitely put a wrinkle in my forehead and I was one of those who actually enjoyed the game, and I'm talking even the extended ending... all that work through the game and you STILL end up basically loosing/it being all a fricken dream style.

But yeah any ending that nullifies all the work you did during the actual game is terrible, I don't feel I've accomplished anything if I spent a week playing a game just to be told it was all a dream, no matter how enjoyable the gameplay is I still want my feelgood fix with a false sense of accomplishment damnit!

Final Fantasy XIII-2 was just sequel-bait for a trilogy, despite Square's claims that Final Fantasy XIII didn't solve anything, they're either lying or deluded. It wrapped up everything that needed wrapped up, Lightning was happy, Snow and Serah were reunited, Sazh got his son back, Hope is free to reconcile with his dad properly and Vanille and Fang managed to stop Cocoon's fall by their own choice. Everything was done and dusted, it should have been left there rather than throw in the completely pointless sequel filled with time travel and all sorts of nonsense.

true, the idea behind -2 was initially more to release a game with ff13's quite amazing setting that fixed some of the major flaws of the first (as in the complete linearness of the first) and I personally enjoyed the gameplay and if they'd had a system like that for the first Im sure it would have done a lot better with the critics than it did, as a game I loved it, but they really should have thought more about the story they were pulling apart :/

But of course its not the only game with similiarly terrible ending just the most recent one to stick in my mind for the whole "all the stuff you just did never happened" idiocy

I've said how good these games are and how much I like them, but the WWE games are so predictable and it pisses me off.

But the point of the four endings is that you choose them, it's fantastic. Rather than the traditional multiple endings of a game where your weak "good" or "bad" choices change the outcome, in DXHR you've been taking part in a world going through this ethical debate of human augmentation, and at the end the choice comes down to you the player, and your opinion on the issue that has built up over the course of the game.
It's genius, but requires a certain amount of brain power in order to be an effective ending to some people.

Honestly, I believe it was about the money. The gameplay was improved a bit though and I did thoroughly enjoy capturing different creatures to use in my party which wouldn't itself have fit in XIII.

Can't believe nobody has mentioned the rushed ending of Saints Row 3 yet.

In the ending you're basically given two options. Either you save Shaundi, a character who stood by your side since Saints Row 2 and you let the ''Antagonist'' Killbane escape or you let Shaundi die in exchange to kill Killbane, an Antagonist who hasn't done anything very much wrong apart from being egocentric and teaming-up with the MAIN antagonist who dies at the beginning of the game.

I don't blame Volition though, with the late THQ being the publisher.

The ending in The first jak and daxter game was ok, but it was more basic than i thought and that game is like a Jr. RPG.

But over all it was a excellent game from my child hood, loved it alot.

I wasn't complaining. I haven't even seen that game's ending to be honest. I just put that because I expected a flood of people to say Mass Effect 3.

The ending to leons story in resident evil 2 was very sudden and just confusing.

Not confusing to what's going on, but confusing in a way of "wait really? why is it over now?"

Final battle aside the story was lackluster overall and played out exactly as you expected it - the worst kind of ending in my opinion.

Have you played Oblivion? Pretty much the same thing if i recall. I think the point of the game is more side quests and exploring anyway, they got the story across fine so i dont really care.

Resident Evil 4 takes it for me. Ooh riding off into the sunset on a jetski. How fucking romantic. Good thing that game was pure awesome or else i would hate it.

Also, Assassins creed 3. Terrible end, to a pretty bad game. How does Ubi go from AC2 to that?
