The bad video game endings thread was just too depressing. Let's talk about our favorites!

Super Mario Bros.2 for the original NES is one of my favorite all time video game endings.

FF8!! I loved it. FF7 was great, but
Spoiler:
it made the whole quest pointless.
FF9 was pretty damn good too. Just a bit obvious though.

I'd have to say that Monkey Island II had one of the best endings I'd ever seen. Very unexpected and a big surprise, I still remember it fondly.

I liked the ending to Conker because it caught me by suprise when:

Spoiler:
His girlfriend dies! I did not see that coming. And I also expected the whole game to face the Panther King at the end as the final boss.

Loved the first game's ending, the second one didn't even hold a candle to the name of half-life.

The multiple endings for Castlevania 2:Simon's Quest.
I almost cried when it said I didnt survive my injuries during the tje battle with Dracula. At least I took the bastard out with my last breath.

When I read it... i was like... WTF? What a friggin' downer! I loved it!

Following the Castlevania post...

THX I hear ya man I too got a little misty, but then I beat the game again and got the better ending. I didnt think I'd get like that over another ending until I beat Symphony of The Night. I played it for at least 9 months before I defeated Dracula. After getting I believe 175% or more I got the best ending possible. I only hope Castlevania gets another face lift on PS2 or GameCube, but I'll settle for Circle of the Moon on GameBoy Advance.

Another random post from your friendly neighborhood

Starcraft's cinematic ending was/is tops on my list. An outstanding ending to a great story.

System Shock 2.

Spoiler:
I love that the only word your character speaks in the entire game is "nah." Plus, it left room for a sequel...


As has been mentioned, Conker's BFD had a hilarious ending, and I liked FF8's too.

Personally, I like SMB2 on the NES.
Any of the Final Fantasy games
Onimusha was pretty sweet
