    That Dead Space 3 ending :rolleyes: was up there with the worst ive played tbh. Far Cry 3 was also pretty terrible, come to think of it most endings are pretty rubbish nowadays im struggling to think of one really enjoyed.

    Id imagine Bayonetta's ending is pretty good, i should finish that game and check it out!

    Don't forget spoiler tags y'all :smashin:

    Mass Effect 3 ending is horrible.
    Both the final fight and the original end scene.
    Even the directors cut wasn't much better.

    The Dead Space 3 ending wasn't too bad.
    I felt a little let down at first, but it's far from the worst I've seen and I think I closes things out pretty well.

    Assassin's Creed 3 ending sucked.
    I'd actually say it's up there with the ME3 ending.

    The ending to Red Dead Redemption wasn't bad, but playing after the end is horrible.

    Crysis 2 imo sucked big time, only one that stands out for me.
    No idea what had gone on or what the point of it was. Just a big anti climax.

    Not finished Far Cry 3 but looking forward to it now :rolleyes:

    Aren't all endings to games a major anti climax? They never live up to expectations.

    The most recent one that stands out as being awesome was Max Payne 3. That just left me with a smile on my face that you get when you've just watched a great movie.

    But so many are just a complete let down.

    the bayonetta ending is quite good, a bit long though.

    the credits are good too, you will see why when you get there.

    I agree, the Max Payne 3 ending was great. In fact i thought it was a top SP.

    Most recently I'd say Far Cry 3. Shockingly poor. Colonial Marines apparently has a bad ending too, but I've not got there yet :rolleyes:

    Black Ops 1 was pretty bad, Hitman: Absolution's was disappointing, and then of course there is the abomination that was the BF3 campaign :rotfl:

    As has already been said, most SP endings are very average. A real shame.

    Why though why is it so hard to make a good ending to a game?

    I always thought Bioshock should have ended at the twist moment, would have been great.

    Best ending recently has to go to the Walking Dead really.

    Cod MW2 - terrible :rolleyes: (par for the course though as the whole story was pretty stinky). Probably have been others but perhaps not as memorably bad :laugh:

    RAGE... basically, it did not have an ending... just a few second long CGI cut scene and then it stopped...

    I actually really enjoyed the game itself but in RAGE even the last little battle didn't feel like the "final boss"... I am 90% sure that game was forced out of the door with it's pants down.

    I must admit I am not really the sort of person who gets attached to game stories or characters. When I first read about the Mass Effect 3 things, I just thought - what a bunch of moaning brats! My problem is probably because I grew up as a gamer in the times when all you would get for all those hours of stress and sweat was a single on screen picture and CONGRATULATIONS, THE END message. Never heard us complain back then, Annnd games were alot harder back then don't you know, blah blah blah :D

    Dark Souls

    There is an ending of sorts, after you beat the Big Boss, but then it's just straight back to the beginning for NG+.

    If ever there was a game that needed a big pay-off given the effort needed to there, it's Dark Souls! Still, the game steadfastly refuses to coddle you at any point so I suppose the ending is entirely in keeping with that!

    Super Ghouls and Ghosts on the SNES. Broken joypads and countless rage quits only to be told you have to go back to the beginning and do it all over again to get the ending.

    I think i cried at the time

    A lot of old Nintendo games were just plain mean! You would have to overcome almost impossible odds to just get poked in the eye in the end. :devil:

    Gears of War 2, the first Gears had an epic ending with General RAM on the train, pretty tough but tense and hugely rewarding. The sequel was a complete anti-climax boss battle requiring you to simply follow the on screen prompts followed by a really cheesy cut scene once the super easy boss had been killed. A real stinker of and ending:rolleyes:

    agree about Rage, I loved that game. My wife was talking to me when I was playing it and suddenly the credits roled I feel like I misseed out.

    Biggest disapointment for me was Binary Domain,, final scene, i didn't upgrade part of one of my guns so it wouldn't fire fast enough to finish the game so i never finished it.

    Seem to remember Homefront kind of fizzled out.

    Stick Colonial Marines on the list too. There's not 1 single thing in that game that is any good. And the ending was a shocker.

    depending on if RAGE gets a seqial that ending was pretty poor.

    clearly it is the half way point of the story, which is fine if RAGE 2 comes this millenium but with sales being so poor of the game............................................... (it seems a bit like half the TV shows i watch which get canned after a season).

    Bruce Lee on the spectrum was a gutter as well.

    one of the 1st games i ever completed and what happens....... it just loops.

    I had a similar experience, i was expecting to have to put the 3rd disc in for the last area which i thought would be as big as the others, then it just ended :eek: So abrupt, really does feel like there is a whole other half to the story!

    I thought Halo 4 had a terrible ending and crap end fight, major disappointment although the game itself was excellent.

    I thought Resident Evil 5's boss fight was rubbish and I didn't think much of the ending either. The worst ending would probably have to go to SAW: The Videogame. I love the movies and I liked the game to an extent but the ending is just the worst. Both endings sucked bad!

    I really liked Alan Wake's ending and the two Dead Space endings. I've not played the third though. I also like the Gears of War endings, including the second one even though it's the weakest ending out of the trilogy.

    another one for Alien Colonial Marines. This game doesn't score high on any scale, I know I was playing on Recruit but I was running round for ages waiting for something to happen realised nothing was going to happen so just went for it got hit twice then cut scene. I had to go on yuotube after just incase the game had glitched (which wouldn't have been put of place).
    Have to say again though(as I mentioned in the Alien thread) I did enjoy this game.
