No

#3 Posted by WarlordPayne (705 posts) -

The worst ending ever was in Soul Reaver 1.

#4 Edited by IBurningStar (2190 posts) -

Dead Rising. That is one of many other worse endings.

#5 Posted by ShiftyMagician (2132 posts) -

It was pretty flat for sure but I can safely say there has to be worse endings out there than it.

#6 Posted by Village_Guy (2662 posts) -

No, and congratulations on creating an absolutely positively awfully one-sided poll. Shame on you and your inferior poll creating skills.

@ShiftyMagician: Fine. Worst one in recent memory.

Where were you during the whole Mass Effect 3 kerfuffle?

It was okay. I just didn't like how it put you in EXACTLY the same place that the first one ended at, with things about to jump off. Feels like a bit of a cop-out.

This isn't even a proper poll.

Quality thread. I thought most of the older userbase was smart and mature enough to remember not to make such bullshit threads.

Hey, there are no explicit rules about making polls. If you don't like it, make your own.

Yeah cause you probably wouldn't notice the difference between a video game and a literal piece of fecal matter shoved into the disc tray. Ever actually play a video game dude?

This is a fantastic poll. I love it. It's also the worst poll.

Yeah the ending is terrible. It's abrupt, it's not satisfying in the least, it doesn't reveal anything about the return of the humans or anything new about the ending of the first game, and it has a silly after credits cut scene that doesn't really play. I feel like Darksiders II's plot works for most of its play time, but it really falls apart at the end and starts to feel rushed and not thought out, probably because it was rushed and not thought out.

No, I just open the box and stare at the disk for 10 mins and then put it back on the shelf.   
 
Bitter much?

Do you even have eyes in your skull? Jeeezz!!

No, but this is the worst poll on GiantBomb until now.

#19 Edited by MEATBALL (3476 posts) -

No?

Wait, this is the internet so I'll adjust my response accordingly...

*ahem*

YES. IT'S THE WORST FUCKING ENDING OF ALL FUCKING TIME. VIGIL GAMES STOLE MY GODDAMN WALLET AND PUT THEIR DICKS IN IT AND THEN SET FIRE TO IT, THEY DESERVE THE DEATH SENTENCE!! WHAT A SHITTY FUCKING GAME. INSTEAD OF MAKING DARKSIDERS II, JOE MAD PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE JUST DUG UP A DEAD RELATIVE OF MINE, FILMED HIMSELF HAVING SEX WITH THEM AND THEN SHOULD HAVE MADE ME WATCH IT, I WOULD HAVE ENJOYED THAT MORE!!!!!!!!1

#20 Posted by TheDudeOfGaming (6078 posts) -

NO ENDING IS WORSE THAN THAT OF BORDERLANDS! No...ending...is worse.

#21 Posted by Tennmuerti (8174 posts) -

Super clever way of avoiding being flagged for a pointless lopsided poll with no discussion input, as well as avoiding an existing topic on the ending.

Guess i'll flag one of the replies instead.

Ah, you're insane. Makes sense then.

How is this a poll? Yes, Yes or Yes? This is the single-party state of an online opinion polls.

#24 Posted by predator (357 posts) -

Kane & Lynch 2.

#25 Posted by GentlemanlyGentleman (320 posts) -

Was it a bad ending? Sort of. More disappointingly short than bad.

Is it the worst ending ever? Hell no!

#26 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1253 posts) -

Who cares. Darksiders is more about fun and gameplay than a great story.

This, also it wasn't bad. it was just the same as the first one.

Y'all need to play more RAGE if you thought that wasn't the worst ending to a game this generation. :|

'to be continued' NooOooOOOOooo

Also I lol'd at 'Even Borderlands was better' option because we all know that's not possible. (yet I voted for that because it made me laugh, that's how polls work right?)

The ending of Darksiders 2 pales in comparison to the likes of Dead Island and Dragon Age 2. Congratulations on your bullshit poll.

I liked Dragon Age 2's ending. It got me really interested in what's going to happen in DA3. Before that I really couldn't care less about the fiction in the Dragon Age universe.

#32 Posted by BoringK (264 posts) -

I was mainly disappointed that there was no dungeon to explore in the Well Of Souls and that Absalom was such a lame final boss. I spent four hours playing last night, going through the last dungeon and doing sidequests, then went to finish the game tonight not realizing I was five minutes from the end.

Obvious troll is obvious.

#34 Posted by JM12088 (40 posts) -

I thought it was a real bad ending. Mostly because unless I'm misunderstanding it the end of darksiders 2 makes everything you did in darksiders 2 rather pointless. The whole thing was to save War who really didn't need saving going by the way darksiders 1 ended. And as that ending repeated itself at the end of DS2 what Death did for him was sweet F all. By the end of darksiders 2 you are in exactly the same situation you was in at the end of 1. You had zero effect on anything.

You cannot end on such an awesome cliffhanger and then make a follow up that makes literally zero progress. You know one of the great parts about darksiders 1 that set it apart from zelda? It's story.

Just made the game feel like a cash in. Lets make a sequal but lets drag this thing out to as many games as possible sort of thing. It's a good game, i enjoyed the journey and i suppose that's what counts but i cannot help but feel shafted slightly.

Also: Really weird how angry people on this site get over a poll. Jesus..just don't take part in it? Discussing the actual ending is better than voting in a poll.

Just beat it, gut reaction to the ending: it sucked.

As many have pointed out, this didn't seem to resolve anything in the end, and even a GLIMPSE of War would've been great, but no.

I can't help but feel some of Death's final words "I stand, at last, at the Well of Souls... with no idea what I must do next." are indicative of the writing process for this game.

Overall, I think this game was kind of disappointing. Just because it's massive, didn't make it especially interesting. I just beat Dragon's Dogma before I started this game and I think the story in that game, in terms of impact, is practically the opposite of Darksiders II. Namely, little to no build up toward anything throughout most of it, and then a crazy revelation at the end. Whereas this game seemed pretty much "Gotta get to the Well of Souls, don't know why, gotta go, get the fuck outta my way Cthulhu, gotta get to the fucking Well, where's the fucking Well Lebowski! Ah there it is. Welp. Now what." *Master Chief Death takes off his mask and jumps in.* The End.

And I really liked the first game.

#36 Edited by EthanielRain (927 posts) -

The ending was about what I expect from a video game. What made it bad was how good the first game's ending was. I wanted more.

The fuck are you talking about? Darksiders 2's ending was just fine. He accepts and finally gets over his guilt for slaying the nephs and lets them rest in peace while simultaniously defeating corruption, saving the Makers world, humanity and War's freedom all at once AND sacrifices his own life to do so. It wrapped up all the games story threads and implied Darksiders 3's story will revolve around Fury and Strife locating Death's soul and resurrecting him so they can meet up with War.

#39 Posted by Trace (3577 posts) -

I'm not seeing any reasonable point of discussion in the opening post/poll. For that reason, I really don't think there's any reason to continue to leave this topic unlocked, lest we attract more rage through disagreement.
