Games with terrible endings
« on: 26 Feb 2007, 16:47 »

This thread will obviously contain spoilers, so no complaining if someone "ruins" a game you haven't beaten yet or whatever.

ANYWAY

Guys I beat Crackdown for the 360 this morning and I have to say it has the worst ending I have ever seen in a video game, let alone a game that is otherwise so ridiculously fun. I mean JESUS. M. Night Shymalan would be embarassed by the end of Crackdown.

As somebody who hasn't bought it yet, I'm more worried about the fact that you finished it in less than a week.

And that's assuming you got it on Day 1.

Did you ever play Ultima: Nemesis?

Worst ending in existence. You spend countless hours leveling gathering your shit and making your way through the Nemesis's tower, to put these retarded ass cards in the right spots on the podium thingy, and then... the credits roll.

I thought KOTOR had a pretty bad ending.  You ran through the Star Forge, with some great battles between you and the dark jedi, and then you have to fight Bastila alone, and eventually Malak.  As tight (and difficult) as those battles were, the ending FMV sequence was the biggest let down ever.

I completely agree with Crackdown, especially the lame Evil Laugh the announcer pulls. Hell, they didn't even lead up to it: there was no story for 99% of the game, then at the end there's this about-face plot-twist for the sole purpose of an interesting sequel. I do, however, also agree that the rest of the game is ridiculously entertaining, although Co-Op partners are scarce.

FEAR's ending was pretty lame.  The way the story progresses made me sympathetic to certain characters you are forced to kill at the end.

There's no alternate way to end the game, other than dying.

PC game called Dungeon Siege. After numerous cinematics in glorious 3D throughout the game and same pretty nice gameplay, you beat the big bad dude at the end and get some written text about how cool you are for beating him and how you should feel proud. The End. Compared to the hell you've been through, the lamest thing I'd ever seen.

I didn't like the ending in either KOTOR game, ESPECIALLY the second one.  It just started getting interesting... and then it stopped.  Maybe I am in the minority when I say I would have been happier if it was longer, the last third of it was just so good and the terrible ending destroyed it.

I have always thought the endings in Zelda games were kind of lame too.  The games are great, but the endings have always seemed sort of pointless to me.

I hated the ending of the Pc and Xbox 360 FPS Prey

you get all these kind of cool weapons and then you go to face the big boss lady of the ship and it is probably the easiest fight out of the whole game

oh, and I hated the ending to halo 2 as well

Thats not the ending. You continue on in Extraction point. But wait till the expansion goes down in price, its not that long of a campaign to pay 30 bucks for. But yeah, Fear's ending was kinda lame. Extraction points is worse as you kill the last guy and there isn't even a cut scene its straight to credits.

Final Fantasy X.

Seriously, that ending blew twelve kinds of chunks.

The final boss battles? Easy, like a hot knife through butter.

I do not understand why people are all like "FFX iz thuh bestest FF evrr." I was terribly disappointed in it.

I third the Crackdown ending. It was all good, then they tacked on a "governmental conspiracy" ending-thing. I was like, "what the hell"?

It would have been much better if they simply left it at "Hey, you cleaned up the city of crime. Good for you."

For Xbox, I'd have to say the game I had the most fun playing with a terrible ending was 'Gladius'.  A fun game, if you like RTS and RPG; however, the ending was so terribly flat and predictable I was completely underwhelmed.

Also, 'Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows'.  I paid for seven sorrows, dangit, not six-with-a-poorly-conceived-M. Night Shyamalan-wannabe-twist.  Grrrrrr.

 Well Weapon Master WAS a very generic bonus mode. Try Soul Calibur 3's Weapon master if you want some pretty decent storytelling.
 Also, I have never really been let down by a game's ending. I also don't actually play games often enough.

Worst ending in existence. You spend countless hours leveling gathering your shit and making your way through the Nemesis's tower, to put these retarded ass cards in the right spots on the podium thingy, and then... the credits roll.

Wait . . . that was the ending for Ultima: Exodus! Is Nemesis a funny name for Exodus?? Also, you practically had to wade through dragons to get to that point. And any game can finish with a big boss battle - how many medieval-esque R.P.G.s end with you having to insert three discs into a bizarre, anacronistic, evil computer? Come on! (Basically I will not hear a bad word said about Ultimas 3, 4, or 5.)

I was pretty disappointed with the ending of Deus Ex. Having three possible endings does not make the conclusion of the game three times as good, it makes it three times as "Ehh".

Oblivion didn't have me caring at all. I can't actually remember what happened. It was all impending doom omg (but with a layer of knowing that even if you don't do anything about it it's not gonna get any worse) and then you went through some trippy garden, there was one of those aweful 'escort some dude' levels and somehow you ended up getting everyone in the street recognising you and no more story at all, even though the world continues afterwards.

Ah, nope, you are correct. For some reason I was remembering the name as Nemesis... either way that ending made me want to punch babies.

Here's the thing. It's REALLY hard to do a good ending. For anything, actually. There's a series of thin lines between what constitutes a good ending, and what constitutes cliched, outright bad, nonsensical, etc. Furthermore, I think it's especially hard in videogames because they are games. Thinking about the very definition of the word 'game', it's something you do for fun or entertainment. Videogames shouldn't necessarily be like books or movies, where you expect a satisfactory conclusion. Most game companies have to look ahead to the future and will leave either plot holes or an outright cliffhanger (Halo 2) to make you want to play the sequel.

In fact, let's take Halo 2. By all accounts, it's a better game than the first. But the kind of ending it employs could only work for the second game in the series because the first game had been successful, and while developing the second they pretty much knew it was going to be a franchise and they'd make at least one more sequel. Hence, you can't have a wrap-it-up ending.

Final Fantasy XII


I put over 80 hours of work into that game and it had the most unsatisfactory ending of any Final Fantasy ever. The first part of the ending was fine, sacrificing yourself and all that. It was the second half, where Penelo is reading her letter or whater...please, let something else interesting happen! That ring? Not interesting, as I forgot it even existed. The Strahl disappering? Not interesting, because it was totally expected. I just kept on expecting some little twist in there, or I don't even know what. SOMETHING to happen.

But it was short, boring and unsatisfying. Grrr.

That said, I had a blast playing the actual game. :-P

Personally, Mario Bros. 2 for the NES was so bad.  Any ending that's just all "OMG IT WAS A DREAM" pisses me off.

Resident Evil 4 made me want to set myself on fire.

Of course, I couldn't really see it too well because of the ridiculous amount of CHEESE.  I mean, seriously.

I can't really say what the story is, but basically you're a supercop type guy, and you run around completing missions and generally causing mayhem alla Grand Theft Auto 3.  As you go along you gain experience and upgrade certain skills, like Deus Ex.  When I was watching the game, Jeph's character could jump over one story buildings and pick up and throw small cars.

That's the thing with Crackdown: there really isn't a story, and then they try to pull a twist out of their ass at the end. The synopsis for the entire game is "you are RoboCop, go apeshit on bad guys". It works well enough, too. I think I'd only recommend the game if you've got some good co-op buddies (which are hard to find), because it is far too short a game.

Anyone ever play the PC Shooter "Red Faction"?

You run around trying to free the slave workers or whatever for the longest time and then "Hey, we're done.  Time to return to earth now."  He kind of flirts with the lady that's been helping him, but just slightly.  Very disappointing ending.

And as for the comment on how video games aren't books and movies:  True, but I think they are as legitimate an art as either of those two mediums.  It's vastly different because of the hands-on approach to the people enjoying them, but that doesn't mean they are inherently faulty.  I recognize it's a business, much like producing movies and publishing books are.  One of my goals in life is to try and get video games recognized as a legitimate art.

Pretty grandiose goal, but what can I say?  It's one of my passions.

Did Crackdown come out for the PS2, or is it just 360, PS3, and possibly Wii?

Also, Lord of the Rings: The Third Age's ending was very disappointing, in that they just used to movie clip from towards the end of Return of the King (Barad-dur falling down and Sauron exploding).   I was expecting something a little more kick-ass from such a great game.

Dreamfall, I think, was one game that probably had both qualities.  Final Fantasy VII's story can suck it, Dreamfall's was way better.  The only thing I didn't like was the soft rock song/speedboat scene.  To be fair, you probably would have to play The Longest Journey (prequel) first to understand the story a little better, but that one also probably had both qualities, however more on the book side.  And I just found out today that they're doing the seque in episodes/accumulated package as well as 'possibly' doing an MMO set in the game world of the trilogy.

i played the sequel...which was underwhelming.  i never finished it though, because i realized that i could be playing better games.  though it was ambitious with the whole being able to blow up walls and stuff.  the technology didn't allow them to use that concept to it's full potential sadly.  :\

Well, when I mean games as art, the first one that comes to mind is Planescape: Torment.  There is no other fathomable medium I can think of that really delivers the same impact that game has.  You control an episode in the life of a man that can't die.  It's pretty freakin' mind-bending and if it wasn't for the ability to make your own choices in that universe, it wouldn't be half as good.

Anyway, on disappointing endings, Front Mission 4.  Not because it's bad for story purposes, but because they have you play as two separate groups the entire game and never have them meet up and fight in the same battle.  I was pretty saddened by this.

I actually liked it quite a bit.  I just wish they actually combined the two interwoven plots better.

Best FM game ever, not in the least.  It was still fun, though.

ANY fighting game. ESPECIALLY DoA
Crash Bandicoot games
Guitar Hero
Knights of the Old Republic 2 (and it was such a good game...)
Final Fantasy 8
Final Fantasy 12 (So effing cliche)

I'll stop whining now...

I got the Anarch Lacroix blowing himself up when he opens the sarcophagus and Jack in a deckchair ending.

Ah, that one's good, but the Loner ending just has a little extra panache to it. Any ending that makes me say "Kick ass!" and then afterwards make me smile uncontrollably and giggle like a little schoolgirl is a good ending in my book.
