Polls about this kind of thing are completely worthless. All they show is which games have been played by the most people. I'd guess that a large percentage of the asked people exclusively play Call of Duty, and so their answer to the poll is obviously going to be that.

Determining the best ending in some kind of measurable way must instead be done by a committee that has to discuss and explain their choices. This has been done before, I think.

You know, I went to the list thinking "If KOTOR isn't in the top 5, this is bullshit."  I had no idea just how bullshit the list is.

With a few exceptions, this could easily be my list for worst endings.  Obviously they exclusively polled 13,000 teenage boys.

I don't know most of those and some of them are games where I played a ton but never finished.  Fallout 3 and Oblivion for example.  Not sure how anyone would rank BlOps over MW1.  Too bad most of this list is console specific.  Where are the Mafia games?  Where is Bastion?

Oh well, all lists are going to generate some amount of dispute.  Better to ask the question of us.

I don't even vaguely remember the end of BLOPS and believe it or not I played through twice (normal and veteran).  I think I understand what they are getting at with Reach - the way the player ends the game is kind of unique, but the overall ending is nothing special.

As recent games go, I can agree with RDR and Portal being up there as they had memorable endings.

But overall I call BS slywink

Crysis 2? Why? Because it just stops? That's a good ending? Apparently internet dumbassery knows no bounds. This list is bullshit!

"Hi, BS? How's it going! So... whatcha been up to? ... Oh, me? Not much. Just reading a horrible, horrible list of the "best" game endings. ... Oh, you read it too? That's so weird! ... Oh, you have to go and beat up the people who made the list? ... Well, I don't blame you. ... I would be upset too, dragging your name through the mud. ... Yes, of course, so to speak. ... No need to get hostile, they were just trying to do something fun. They had no idea that most of the people that respond to these lists are idiots. ... Yes, I know the list fails without ICO, Okami, Final Fantasy VI, but wishing death on the respondents? Seems a little harsh. ... OK, well then I should let you go then. ... OK, bye."

No, no he doesn't. CoC states no trolling - I don't see how this list could be anything but.

Whoops. Forgot the smiley. biggrin

Perhaps we could generate a better list ... any suggestions? If people put up the games they think have memorable endings, we could set up a poll that allows multiple votes, and then people could vote for EVERY ending they liked. Since we all haven't seen every ending, I suppose a little youtube research would help folks decide. biggrin

See how much work you've created MO? trolling. slywink

Who are these 13,000 fans they polled? Looks like they were all under 16 years old as most of the stuff is from the last few years. Another pointless list.

I donít mind that there are so many modern games but there are some really bizarre choices there.  Multiple Super Mario games? Force Unleashed II over the original?  Fallout 3 over New Vegas?  An Elderscrolls game?  The ending in those are so unsatisfying they always let you keep playing.   icon_razz
