Best Endings

  • Life is Strange. Chapter 5 in general, but especially the final choice.

    The choice to save the city seems like the more cannon one to me. I was okay until the pictures of them started burning after the final reset, then I was just a pile of "damn it game, you got some tears" lol.

  • @kirkking2000 Really? I though LiS ended on a downward trend.

    It wasn't the lack of choice reflection that bugged me, but rather the weird faceless, voiceless force of destiny that seemed added at the last minute. That and the lack of closure. Episode 5 was sorely missing a sequence at the dorms where you can walk around and talk to your classmates, teachers, your parents, and see Jefferson get hauled away (or, alternatively, talk to Chloe about how you're genocidal). I think that game is canon '15 GOTY, I just don't see why the ending in particular was remarkable to you.

  • @Haru17

    One of the reasons I think I was able to overlook a lack of closure is that I looked at it for what it was called, Season One. While I agree, it would've been nice to see a little more follow through on Jefferson actually being taken care of, the Jefferson/David choice seemed like a payoff in itself. Most of the major choices, I would rewind and at least see all of my options before I settled on a final choice. Then David shot Jefferson, and I was like no need, I'm good! lol. It might not have had a "standard" dorm investigation/ talking scene, but it did have the reverse scene, and the other various mind trips, which I thought were amazing. I suppose just the culmination of all the emotional investment in Max and Chloe's relationship I had built up over the previous 10 or so hours of game play being ripped away was just a tad too much for me

    If nothing else, chalk it up to me having just recently completed it, and wanting to include a new entry in the conversation :P

  • First Mafia. one of original deus ex ending

  • Transister.

    We spend the entire game with this protagonist who does not say a word because they stole her voice. She finally meets up with her boyfriend at the end in some sort of after life. He says "hi" and she just says a small "hey". It's the only time we hear her talk and it sent chills up my spine. The art and the music really polished it off and its one of the best endings I have seen. That is a games company that seem to have their games all sorted and worked out before they make them.

    Half life. 1 and 2

    For such a simple game it must be hard to come up with an ending. The obvious option would be the whole, well you just saved the entire world good job. Instead that try something different. A strange "man" literally ends the game for you. Pulls you out of reality and says basically this is the end for now. Your going to sleep until next time. Breaks the fourth wall. Gives this simple game an interesting mystery. One I fear will never be explained now. Valve. .. Please..

    Tomb raider 1

    The fight in the pyramid. The classic ending of lara escaping as the island blows up behind her. An ending fit for any adventure film. To see it on a ps1 game was cool.

    Mass effect 3

    Only joking

  • "Snake... Had a hard life."

    Still cry, every time. I tear up just thinking about it.

    Also these two games.

  • @Paper-Lion !@#$-ing Shinra.... :cry: . But seriously though, probably one of the top 3 best looking scenes I've ever seen on the PSP.

  • Dragon's Dogma. Impossible to explain or predict, totally wonderful and deeply silly; fitting for a game that you have to play to understand why converts are so bloody noisy about it.

    Also Crusader of Centy / Soleil. Brandon mentioned games you could have a bit of a walk about at the end it, if my brain isn't totally fried this is one of them.
