Video Games With the Best Endings

The Top Ten

1 Portal 2

Imagine this: you were trapped in a big, underground training prison all of your life with no escape or exit, then after taking down two mega AI's you finally see the true light of day. How great is that?

This is the best game ever and when I finished the final showdown with wheatly I was like...OH YE-YA! (plus Has anyone mentioned the companian cube? )

Are you kidding me? Number 17? Call of Duty GAMES HIGHER? This list has some horrible games in the top 10. Bioshock is great, but shouldn't be number one. This game, however, is masterpiece in its ending. Emotional, funny, and musical number. Fantastic.
Also,
Shadow of the collosus and MGS 4 are not in the top ten. Horrible list. - StormingShadow

It’s beautiful. Play the game and find out - Ilikegames

2 Mass Effect 2
3 Red Dead Redemption
4 Shadow of the Colossus

The ending was so incredible, I did not think that until I have seen the work of nomad colossus and his video"light and dark", then I was so curious to see all the forums dedicated to this game and this is how, by seeing all the work and how smart the game was designed that the game passed to one of my favorite games to my favorite game of all times. By far.

6 Batman: Arkham City

I like more the ending of the harley quinn's revenge, are wee taling of that? Because I don't liked the original ending

7 The Walking Dead

You knew it was going to happen eventually, but it was still a blow to the feels when it did

8 BioShock

BioShock is full of chills and its storyline is so gripping, so of course the ending is good!

9 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Like killing makarov

10 inFAMOUS

The Contenders

11 Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Glad to see this one high on the list. Not only was the writing in this game amazing, the ending was pure Star Wars. I actually clapped at the end of this one.

12 Hitman: Blood Money

The first time I played this game, I didn't know I'm supposed to get agent 47 up in the last mission.
I cried so much because I thought agent 47 died and the wonderful franchise ended.
I cried too when I figured out the true ending, because it's such a relief that the agent 47 is still alive and this amazing franchise would go on.

This game has "the" story that has the potential to craft an awesome movie

too bad the movie turned out such a disappointment
orphans, a girl, so many kills don't get me started... such a disaster.

13 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

The best end you feel satisfied for what you did the best game ever - suve

That last battle against Ganon is so satisfying.

14 BioShock 2

Everybody loves bioshock one and infinite, but no one recognizes this game, it really is sad it's just such a good game and ending

The good ending is so beautiful, its impossible you can't cry with this

It is better than the originals ending. - Therandom

15 Okami
16 Mother 3
17 Call of Duty: World at War

Music makes me so happy to see them scumbag Nazis finally fall

18 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
19 Tomb Raider: Legend
20 The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky
21 Mercenaries 2: World in Flames
22 BioShock Infinite

The ending for this game is so awesome that words cannot describe. The level of awesomeness is like... Chuck Norris squared! And if you haven't been paying attention to the story, then it can be just as confusing as well - Kazzong

In several minutes it tied the whole trilogy, the game, and even reality together in a way that really makes you rethink things in the game

23 Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
24 War Craft 3: Frozen Throne
25 Chrono Trigger
26 Call of Duty 2 Big Red One
27 Super Mario Galaxy

The lost Luma finally got back to Rosalina. WHAT A HAPPY ENDING! *SOB*

28 Call of Duty 4 : Modern Warfare

Can't believe its not on the list! Well I don't like all those other games just Call of Duty and this has my fave ending its very sad.

NO, this is by far the best game with a great ending, a sad ending, but an awesome payback ending, its way better than BIOSHOCK, in fact bioshock sucks

29 The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
30 Saints Row

YO CAN YOU HURRY THIS UP I WANNA GO TO FRECKLE BITCHES!

NUFF SAID - bendanna

31 Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction
32 Call of Duty: World at War Final Fronts
33 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
34 Final Fantasy VI
35 Far Cry
36 Tomb Raider: Underworld
37 System Shock 2
38 Paper Mario
39 Silent Hill 2
40 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Simply epic and unexpected. It goes so much, yet so slow... And every second is amazing. You can't possibly consider it a bad ending, and it's realistic too. - Rigas

41 Dark Messiah of Might and Magic

The rest on this list suck.. Might and magic will have to do :D Mandate of heaven is my favourite but it has a crap ending

42 Rock Band
43 Star Wars Battlefront II

The bad guys winning really mixed it up. One of my faves.

44 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
45 Undertale

Spoilers, obviously:

Well Undertale was something I didn't expect. There are a lot of endings in Undertale but the only one I did is the best one. Just think for a moment, everything in your world doesn't exists anymore, your friends, your family, eveyone you loved and knew died, and they are not coming back. The only things that still exist are a flower with powers who only God can match him and wants to kill you again and again and again, and then there is you a little kid who has nothing just one thing, it isn't an item, it isn't in the game, something everyone have but we decide how much we have, it's called "DETERMINATION" and that's is the only thing we need to win this fight. You could leave the game if it's to hard for you, but if you have enough Determination you can win it.

At the end you win and you have two choices kill or mercy, it isn't like other games that if you choose the obvious choice you get the bad ending, no, It's justified why you want to kill ...more
