Most Disappointing Video Game Endings Of All Time
The Ending of a game can make a game amazing or really disappointing and there are two examples for consequence of the endings. Mass Effect 3 is one of the best Science Fiction games ever made but not everyone will agree with me on this one because of the really bad ending of Mass Effect 3 and after nearly 5 years the players are still pissed on the ending. On Other hand we have Last Of Us considered to be one of the greatest video game of all time with amazing storyline and phenomenal characters but what made the game amazing was its ending (I don’t want to spoil) but you will be satisfied once you see those credits rolling.
Mass Effect 3
Not everyone was insulted by BioWare’s ending to its epic Mass Effect trilogy, but those people weren’t paying attention.
The result of dozens—if not hundreds—of hours of exploring, fighting, relationship building, planet mining, decision making and cringey romance, Mass Effect 3’s ending presents players with essentially three decisions: control, destroy, or synthesize. All things considered, it’s a bit like choosing your favorite color: blue, red, or green. That’s more or less the only thing that changes in each ending sequence. Not even the most hardcore of Mass Effect fans could justify this ending as being anything more than offensive. In a game that’s all about choice, agency, and practical effects of your choices, every single player experienced almost the exact same ending.
Gearbox Software’s Borderlands is no stranger to silliness. However, the game’s over-the-top ridiculosity simply can’t justify its obnoxiously offensive ending.
After 25-30 hours of often-frantic first-person shooting and role-playing—or 60 hours, if you’re a completionist—Borderlands rewards players’ quest for the Vault with a not-so-pleasant surprise. As we already learned, the Vault can only be opened every 200 years—and by the time we’ve finished dispatching the Destroyer, a monstrous guardian of the prized location, the Vault has been sealed for another 200 years. W… T… F. Needless to say, this ending didn’t sit too well with fans.
No Man’s Sky
Before you say anything, we know. No Man’s Sky has proven to be one of the most disappointing games in recent memory—if not of all time. However, the game might have had some shred of a redeeming quality if, when players arrived at the Center of the Galaxy, there was a surprise there that made the entire, lonely, monotonous journey worth it. No need for a spoiler alert here: you find nothing.
Not only is there no surprise at the Center of the Universe, as virtually all players expected—there’s literally nothing at the Center of the Universe. Nothing! It doesn’t even matter whether you pursue the Atlas quest line or not—we all get nothing out of it. To those lucky enough to have skipped this unremarkable title, just imagine putting yourself through hours upon hours of almost mindless drudgery, until the fateful moment arrives when you finally can click on the Center of the Universe, with the minute hope that it would all be worth it. Then imagine watching the map zoom out for a solid four minutes before beginning … a new game? Not quite. You keep all of your stuff, but your ship is broken and you’re in a new universe continuing your journey with all knowledge and experience kept. It just breaks your stuff and spits you out! That’s it.
Oh, the memories of opening Halo 2 on Christmas Day! (Or earlier, of course, if you were old enough to drive yourself to the mall and pick it up at launch.) Who can forget popping that disc into that hulking black beast of a video game console and drifting away into beautiful, first-person, space-shooting bliss? Yes, those were good times … until the abrupt and totally insulting cliff-hanger posing as a legitimate ending made us all stare at the screen, dumbfounded, and ask: “That’s it?”
Although it was apparently not the ending the creators wanted to make, players were left with an incredibly unsatisfying taste in their mouths when legendary spaceman Master Chief, secretly aboard the spaceship The Truth, responds to Lord Terrence Hood’s “What are you doing?” with the awesomely badass “Sir, finishing this fight.” Then he promptly doesn’t finish anything. The game cuts to black. The end music plays. Have fun waiting for the next one!
Final Fantasy X
Unsatisfied. Confused. Bored. Underwhelmed. These are not feelings we want to experience after devoting between 80 and 200 waking hours to a video game. Yet, that’s what many players were left feeling after watching what passes for an ending in Final Fantasy X.
With Sin defeated, Tidus and Yuna can finally let the good times roll, get married, and have some babies, right? It’s party time for the summoner and crew, surely. But wait … Tidus is a ghost? Or a dream? Tidus isn’t real? What exactly is happening? Even by Final Fantasy standards, this ending is more than a bit convoluted, and a whole lot of lame—so lame, in fact, that a sequel was required to even get close to justifying this insulting, anticlimactic CG disappointment.
