Topic!

Has to be NIER for me.. Sure, it screws up some stuff that you might've been working on for a relativly huge amount of time, but it was a great build up to a great conclusion!

Yours?

It's hard to say. Most video game endings suck. The one that sucked the least to me was Super Mario 64, because he gets a cake.

The Far Cry 3 ending had a big FUCK YEAH followed immediately by melancholic life contemplation by yours truly. It had such a powerful LOST vibe.

@OfficeGamer: So what is the ending to Far Cry 3?

Persona 4, without a doubt. Even on this chart of jrpg endings it didn't fit anywhere cause the ending was just so good it was a total outlier that didn't belong anywhere on the graph.

I heard Final Fantasy VI has a fantastic ending where every character (even minor) has been given some form of closure. I need someone to attest to this though.

Probably Bayonetta because it has like 5 endings and they're all crazy and amazing.

Uhh, I mean, Red Dead Redemption's ending was really cool.

Portal 2. The final boss battle did a great job of combining all the puzzle mechanics from previous chapters into a single battle. I didn't find the battle too frustrating and it had good pacing because it was segmented into parts. It felt both old school and new at the same time. Narratively the conclusion to the "story" was amazing and produced a hopeful ending that contrasted the end of the world dirge that the entire game had. It also had one of the great "oh fuck, no you just didn't" moments I ever experienced.

Red Dead for me, realizing there was more main story stuff to do after the "end"

@Shirogane:

The ending of Persona 4 is not even as good as Persona 3. The back end of P4 is just:

"Finally, we caught the killer! No wait, that wasn't the killer, this was! But wait, he was really being manipulated by this evil demon thing! Oh no, that evil demon thing wasn't really the mastermind at all, this other evil demon was really behind everything!"

It's still an excellent game, but it's strengths are more about the characters rather the plot. If you're talking about the ending from a character standpoint, I agree it is good, but it doesn't have the great build up to the final showdown with a satisfying payoff like P3 does. Not that I'm saying P3 is the best ending ever, just that P4 is not.

I can't think of this question and not come back with Metal Gear Solid 4. I have been a giant fan of the series since the first MGS and they manage to wrap up all of the insane story stuff that they set up in the most satisfying fist fight through the ages. With tension high and a gorgeous back drop it's an ending worthy of movie quality.

Red Dead : Redemption - it's both surprising and rewarding, with a definite ending, yet lends itself perfectly for continous play even past the game's conclusion. A stroke of genius.

True that.

Also, the ending of Persona 3 (not counting the bonus chapter).

Arkham City is the best in recent memory. The Joker sings a creepy version of "Only you.." Over the credits. The story played out exceptionally well.

You say Nier, but what ending are you talking about? A?

As much flak as I'm gonna get for it, the Synthesis ending in Mass Effect 3 (Extended Cut) was very satisfying.

In a depressing way the most satisfying was Silent Hill 2 In Water Ending, as it was the most fitting to me, and and in a badass and egotistical way the dark side ending of KOTOR.

Yup! FF6 and Zelda 3 are tied for best ending, for me.

On that note, Demon's Souls. Why? Because the ending mucks you.

Also, I think Spec Ops: The Line had a really good ending. I thought I had it figured it out but ohh boy was I wrong.

I think he means back-to-back endings, not alternate endings. As in, there were multiple points where the game could have ended, but didn't and kept going.

Single Game - Mass Effect 2, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Halo: Reach

Game Series - ? The problem is whenever I think of a series that "ended" I realize that more games are coming (Halo had Halo 4 after Halo 3 obviously, Gears is still going) so I end up not wanting to list them.

I think the main problem is that I love certain series, but the game endings vary so much in quality that I just can't pick one for certain. Example - Looooove the ending to the first Diablo, love all three games, did not like the ending to 2 or 3 all that much. Loooove the endings to both Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, didn't like the ending to 3 all that much.

Other than the obvious (being The Walking Dead), I've always enjoyed the endings to Max Payne 1 & 2, and a few of the old adventure games, like Full Throttle and Day of the Tentacle.

Arkham City had a great ending to me. I was sad, surprised, and happy all at the same time. Uncharted 3's ending was satisfying to me, as I felt the Uncharted series ended well. The Walking Dead's ending almost made me cry though, and that is special. I haven't finished a lot of the games that came out in 2012, so I have no idea if any of them have good endings.

Shadow of the Colossus is my favorite. It was dark and thought-provoking, and didn't play to expectations. I still haven't played Nier, though. Maybe I'll line it up next, just don't have the time right now.

@BamurDeadd: That's true, A left me wanting a little bit more. B, C, and D were an actual ending, because....well, you know why. And yes, the B playthrough probably changed my life in some way, I've just yet to realize it.

@LikeaSsur: Same here! Really loved how they shed more light on that one story of that one character and displayed how that one thing that happened, really shouldn't have happened in that one event! :)

How's that for spoiler free? Nuts and Bolts feels like an appropriate thing to say..

Getting all the P Wings at the end of Mario 3 was pretty sweet. I thought getting the Uber Powerful Gravity gun at the end of Half Life 2 was awesome. The final fight in Portal 2 was pretty amazing too.

In terms of pure "OH WHAT THE FUCK" probably Braid. That blew my mind. Journey had one of those "FUCK YEAH!" moments, that was incredible to witness, and even better to share.

The best ending ever, though? That's a tough one.
