Inspired by ye olde JRPG thread, multiple choice to make it a total goatfuck. Links also a total goatfuck, good luck with that (look at the first one). Poll options completely random and off the top of my head. I should note while its cool looking up ending musical themes it can be a little exhausting listening to them all. Road to Chicago's just a damn good song, it has nothing to do with this thread, though Thomas Newman's (and Roger Deakins') ability to get nominated for Oscars and not win is staggering.

Painkiller by Judas Priest plays during the last boss in Brutal Legend. That's pretty rad.

The Russell Crowe Robin Hood credits are really awesome if we want to talk about movies (rest of the movie is mediocre).

@superfriend: Red Dead another one I forgot about, good choice.

Rockstar Games are the best at ending credits. Both Red Dead and LA Noire had great soundtracks and excellent credits songs.

For ending credits it has to be Memories of You from Persona 3. Red Dead has the best music for transitioning to the second act (Far Away - Jose Gonzales) but I don't think a whole lot of games go out of their way to do that transition justice.

I voted but like many have mentioned your list is a pile of poo poo. I will send another vote to Faunts M4 Part II which was used as the credits song for ME3 as best credits theme. They also used the Faunts song Das Malefitz for ME3, too bad they didn't use one in ME2 cause it's credits sucked.

Overall best ending in total... boss music+ending theme+credits song... I agree with @Neurotic Persona 3 or perhaps with @Superfriend Red Dead Redemption.... or maybe it was @hiono and @Yummylee with Metal Gear Solid 3. All of those are very very solid and I consider them about equal. From the poll I choose Vagrant Story. I will admit that it (Vagrant Story), Front Mission 3, and Demon's Souls are all worthy inclusions in the poll but not the best.

I'd nominate the ending sequence to The Saboteur, just because it relies almost entirely on the music.

Bayonetta, no doubt about it.

@bane122: Already in the poll silly man (though I didn't link to it for spoilery reasons)

Bayonetta is another good choice I missed, also loving all the idiots that continue to complain about poll choices; keep it up guys!

The ending + ending song to Portal 2's co-op campaign. I love this song so much that I made it my ring tone.

I would also say that I really enjoyed the final boss + ending cut scene + ending song of Kingdom Hearts. That was just a great combination. I would post it but I can't find a video on youtube where the song isn't muted due to copyright issues.

And of course, one of my favorite classic endings + song combos (and the boss fight was great too, it's just not included with this video) - Super Mario World.
