IMO....AoD had a horrible ending!!

Karel was never fully explored as a character, and did he die? Why didn't Lara stay after the explosion? It is also the most open ended game ending EVER!!!!

How is that such a bad ending? I was very impressed with it actually. How else should they have ended it? Sam handing it over to the authorities himself? He can't, he's a Splinter Cell! I don't understand what's your problem with that ending.

The goal in the game is to get rid of the pox. The end shows how he does so. This is bad.... how?

To stay on topic though... I agree with Laras Boy, AOD's ending was bad. I really enjoyedt he game and i wanted to know what happened so bad! They just left us hanging with many, many questions unanswered. I think we should have at least known more about Karel.

I understand what you mean and its the only way they could have ended it, but I still didn't like it. I'm too used to action-packed endings, but that wouldn't have worked with Splinter Cell. I am impressed with the way he handled the situation though. Nice work Sam :tmb:

AOD - because after beating Boaz and finishing the game, it didn't even play the closing FMV to reward me for my efforts. :pi:

Speaking once more on TR, I was a bit disappointed by the end of TR1...I played it for MONTHS....and the ending is her running off of an island and driving a boat away while it exploded? It could have been worse, but c,mon, man!!

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I remember when I finished, I was like, "Is that it..?"

Do you remember what happened? I've forgotten.

I think that is what really makes an ending bad, when you can't even remember it!

I guess I can understand why you felt that way then. I'm obsessed with spies and things of the like, so that's one reason why I love SC so much. When I was a kid I always said I wanted to be a spy. :vlol:

But yeah, I agree. Nice work Sam! :tmb: :D

Too right. Come to think of it, I can't remember any of the Harry Potter game endings and I've played three (four if you count both Philosopher's Stones)!

I felt the same way!!! :eek:

But still, most game endings are a MILLION times better than they were back in the NES and SNES days. Back then you'd beat a game just so you could see, "Congratulaion!" written on the screen. :vlol: Best endings ever! :ton:

Yeah... the ending of TR1 is a little lame! There again, huge FMV sequences were a rarity back in 1996, so it can be forgiven!

I would like to add the complete lack of Vincent goodness in the end FMV sequence for Final Fantasy 7.... :p

Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Xbox has the worst game ending ever, it did the series no justice at all :( Even though the game itself was truly AMAZING!

Spoiler

The sunkern church collapses after defeating the Master, Buffy and her friends leave through a crack in the wall. Later at the Bronze nightclub a vampire leads a girl outside into the allyway and Buffy say's : "Oh well duty calls...I'd like to see those pom-pom girls try making my squad!" AND THATS IT!!!

End of Spoiler
After fighting demonds and defeating her all time enemy they made Buffy shrug it off like it was nothing, NOTHING!

The crapest ending ever IMO!

You end up with more plot holes than previously expected - no definite conclusions whatsoever.

Tomb Raider 5: 'We've found her!'....and then what? Wait for AOD? We all knew Lara would come back for another game, so she was still alive etc. I played the entire game for that completely uninformative ending? :mad:

Resident Evil 4's ending was really awful.
All of the Onimusha games except for Dawn of Dreams have mediocre/bad endings.
Devil May Cry 1 and 2 had crappy endings.
Final Fantasy X and X-2 had weak endings also.
Kingdom Hearts I and II had bad endings.
The entire last 1/4 of Indigo Prophecy was crap incarnate...
And Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones had a really lame ending.

Final Fantasy X

Kingdom Hearts I and II had bad endings.


I couldn't disagree with you more! :eek: FFX and KH1&2 had the best endings of virtually any games I have ever plade (which have been A LOT). Honestly, I can't think of a game with a better ending than the original Kingdom hearts especially. KH2 and FFX had phenominal endings as well! We must have very, very, very different taste in storylines. :ton:

I thought I'd mention Tomb Raider Legend. It's not really bad, but I was disapointed. I never realized quite what Amanda's intentions were, and neither do I understand how Lara's mother was talking to the future Lara while it was still past. The only reason why Lara was able to talk to her Mom in the first place was a result of what happened in the past, and I don't know, it confuses me. Maybe I just don't get it, but it didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. I loved TRL, but the story as a whole was not a strongpoing by any means.

I thought the ending was great for PoP: TTT!



SPLINTER CELL PANDORA TOMORROW SPOILER!!!

Sam Fisher has to save people from the pox. What does he do? He disguises as the janitor, places the pox down on the ground and walks away. Bomb squad come in and place a container over the box. THE END.



I have to agree, I was really upset with the ending, but all around it was still a great game. One of my favorite games of all time. Besides Pandora Tomorrow, I hated the ending for Resident Evil 4, it was just really lame, IMO.

AOD and Legend endings.....Too short and incomplete!!!!!!!!!

The last mission, your doing something in a Nazi facility, and then gas is released and it starts to blow up. you escape the facility, and board a train with other allied soldiers providing cover fire. The train leaves, one of them says "Wow, look at it blow!", where it fades to black and says "THE END"

Kingdom Hearts I and II had bad endings.


Havent seen the end of 2 but one wasnt the best ending at all... getting a note from micky and running into the sunset with donald and goofy... just having donald and goofy exchanging cheesy looks at sora is enough to make me vomit. The game is great dont get me wrong... but the story with goofy and donald i found rather corny... ( of course this is my opinon... please dont attack me KH fan boys/girls )

Tomb of Legends

Crash Nitro Kart- Hero Story

SPOILER END!

As if it was! It was nothing like that! It had humor and everything. Crash imagining that he had a planet shaped as his head. Finding out that Velo was teh same as everyone else. I think you were just told! :ton:

Tomb of Legends

TR3's PATHETIC! My god it sucked. Kill the guy and fly away. Lost Artefact should have been Multi-format so we could have a decent ending.
