This was such a blast. I only ever played the first three Tekken games so seeing all of those endings again gave me a real nice blast of nostalgia. Jess and Bakalar's reactions to seeing them for the first time really added immensely to the whole experience.

This is my fav content in months, energy is so lively and classic GB, an instant classic piece of content, and it just gets wilder from here folks

4 and tag 1 are a bit serious and weak though, but 5.6 and tag tournament 2 have some genuine gold that beats all of 1-3

One thing I wanted to point out: there’s an extended version of Gunjack’s ending from Tekken 3 that is not in Tekken 7. You had to do something special to unlock it but I don’t remember what. Here it is:

https://youtu.be/bEm7SXfLHmE

I’m predicting all the Tekken Tag 1 endings to be at the bottom of the dumper as they’re largely bad in addition to being non-canon. They’re such nothing bad endings. I would say they’re the worst in the series but I don’t remember Tekken 6’s endings well. And Tekken 7 is weird in that there’s the story mode stuff and kind of individual character endings but not really?

Speaking of Tekken Tag, one suggestion I’d like to make: when you get to Tekken Tag 2 and are about to watch Jinpachi’s ending watch the console Tekken Tag 2 intro first. That intro actually plays into his ending in a very key way (I’ll leave it up to y’all to decide if it’s funny or not).

Also it’s just a hype as fuck (and funny) intro that is basically the essence of Tekken IMO. Lol. Though Tekken intros are so strong you could almost do a mini ranking of those if you wanted (maybe after ranking the endings?). the Tekken Tag 1&2 console, Tekken Tag 2 Arcade and Tekken 5 console intros are all timers. I basically associate the Tag 1 intro with the PS2 boot up noise. lol

Glad y’all are enjoying this. Tekken is one of my favorite series. I got way into Mortal Kombat and Tekken lore as a teen so as dumb as some of this shit is I have a lot of love for it all. Also the CG endings really separated Tekken from other fighters at the time as most fighting game endings at the time of Tekken 1-3 were still images with text but by the end of the generation pretty much every fighter was copying Tekken. So the endings for the first three games especially really felt special to me at the time. Also Tekken got comedy in a way that I feel like few games did for a very long time.

Either way, I’m very excited about what y’all are doing with the site. Fun stuff, fun people. I hope you have fun with the rest of the endings.

Oh, if y’all ever decide to do another “watch all endings” type of video for another game I very much recommend Mortal Kombat 4. It wouldn’t take long but holy shit some of that stuff is just incredible. lol

Finally:

https://youtu.be/sEGymfKWXt0

EDIT: Just wanted to add I would not have made the suggestion to watch the Tag 2 console intro before Jinpachi’s Tag 2 ending for lore reasons as I know that’s not what you guys are watching these for. You’re watching them for the over-the-top action or comedy. I made the suggestion I made because the Jinpachi bit in Tag 2’s intro is paid off with a joke in his ending is all. Not the end of the world if you guys don’t do this but just thought I would suggest it all.

Also, Tekken is where I learned about movies ending with Fin. My brother had to explain it to me.

This was super good. As someone that's watched every Tekken ending multiple times, seeing Jess lose her shit a dozen times made this even better.

I loved this, Tekken endings are so good. Please do the intros too! You could do them after the endings so you don't "spoil" anything. They're not really funny but they're sick.

I'm getting "An error occurred. Please try again later. (Playback ID: _qoZrDPEVyi-rZg-)" (I know I can watch the download version but it's getting kinda annoying that so many videos don't just play.)

Alex was done real dirty in Tekken 2. I’m definitely an unbiased source for this opinion.

How can you skip the immaculate intro openings to every game? I daresay the Tekken 2 opening is the best opening to any videogame ever!

This, there were a few jokes here and there I felt only the two of them caught and their crazy laughs were jokes.

Excited to see as the whole "new" crew gets even more comfortable with one another.
