Which Game Had The Best Ending?
I’d like to follow up my last Question of the Week about which game had the worst ending, with a solidly predictable one about which game had the best ending. Simple and self-explanatory.
The best ending could involve any game which you felt had the sickest plot twist, or ended a game or franchise in the perfect way. Or perhaps even a game that ended so dramatically, even on a cliff hanger, that you absolutely couldn’t wait for its sequel. All of this means not Mass Effect 3 hey.
Just kidding. Kinda. Not really.
But it doesn’t just have to be the “ending” as in the moments before the final credits. It’s more like “the last stretch”, or the climax. For example, everyone who played the original BioShock will know why I’d consider that to be one of my favourite game endings, but it wasn’t the actual ending that made it so incredible, but the finale as a whole. It was just so damn epic, and one of the coolest twists you’d find.
I also absolutely loved the endings of most of the Metal Gear Solid games, as each one blew my mind and reminded me why it’s my favourite game series of all time. Other endings I won’t be forgetting come from Infamous and Prototype, because the final plot twists in both those games were just so damn insane that it made them special for me. I also loved the first Assassin’s Creed game’s ending, where things went utterly bonkers and my hype levels for Assassin’s Creed 2 threatened to take away my sanity. I miss those days of Assassin’s Creed, before it turned into a milked creature.
And of course, as a Batman obsessed freak, I completely loved the ending of Arkham City. It blew me away and just made me feel proud of Rocksteady for the liberties they took with the Batman universe, and how they created something so fantastic and memorable out of it.
Alright, I’ll stop now.
What are your favourite and best game endings?
