2 Ghosts 'N Goblins

This ending like more worse than all endings in the world! even than halo 2 and sonic adventure 2!


3 Super Mario Odyssey

This is even worse than Super Mario Bros 2's ending because instead of trying to rebel against Bowser when he knocked away Mario for wanting to marrying her again, she waited for the fight happening, then rejected both mario and bowser despite bowser has much more reason to be rejected than Mario (He kidnapped her and forced her to marry him). Sure, Super Mario Odyssey is good, but the ending didn't worth the effort, especially when it's another plot about saving a kidnapped princess, and before bing rejected by her this time. And of course, the rest of the ending doesn't make any sense. I mean, how could Mario be happy after being rejected? If they tried to make it funny, they completely failed.

In my opinion, Super Mario Odyssey definitely had the worst ending of every Mario games created. Even if Mario and Peach were getting married, Bowser will STILL kidnapp her.

Horrible game and the ending mad it even worse - Supermarioplush220

After saving Peach for the GAZILLIONTH TIME, Mario gets REJECTED from his wedding proposal. That confirms that Peach is the real villain. It also marks the start of Mario and Bowser's friendship, making it a happy/sad ending.

4 Mass Effect 3

It's a great game with an epic final battle, but the last cutscene felt unsatisfying.

The game give you the many choices for end, but only differences of choices, is the color of explosion at the end

Not even the extended cut can fix this garbage ending. This ending not only makes no sense whatsoever. But relies on deus ex machina and other garbage writing devices. All for an ending that In the end tells you your choices didn't matter

Ending contradicts the lessons taught in previous games, sacrifices realism for no reason, last second plot device character, and the six are uncannily similar. For better or for worse the extended cut is much better.

5 Super Mario Bros. 2

We plowed through one of the most difficult Mario games ever created only to find out (S P O I L E R A L E R T) that it was all some dumb dream! What a disappointment!

6 Halo 2

I think that Sonic Chronicles had the exact same ending, but that game for me, was like... it has a cut scene that looks like you are in for something good. But NO! It just flat out stops right there and ends with sonic and tails talking about that piece of crap game and who made it. I think Halo 2s ending looks awesome compared to the game I just talked about.

What are you doing up their? Sir, finishing this fight...A. you fell off and almost died in halo 3, B. You didn't even get the chance to blow up the ship... Worst ending ever...

it ended like his spaceship goes into battle and he said "sir, I'm finishing the fight" lol!

It was really good untill the ending

7 Grand Theft Auto San Andreas

kill yo best friend, kill the real bad guy,
great game but after you finish the hardest level in the video game, the last 1, its the stupidest ending ever

8 Gears of War 2

The game is awesome and long and all the missions were just awaiting the final mission to sink jacinto, and that sucks

9 BioShock

Disappointing for me, that's one of the ways the sequel one upped the original

I was pissed when it ended but I can play over and over again

If you're talking about the bad ending, you are in true, but the good ending is so emotival and really good

10 Ghostbusters: The Video Game

This game is good

The Contenders

11 SpongeBob Squarepants: Operation Krabby Patty
12 Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

who would kill their own father?
luke skywalker needs to teach raiden a lesson of wisdom, I mean seriously

Great Game But The End Just Simple And Plain Sucks, And That Comes From A Die Hard MGS Fan

13 Mirror's Edge

Not enough explanation let's say faith rescued Kate the end

14 Lord of the Rings: Conquest

The whole entire game followed no story line what so ever but the endings? Really?

15 Skate
16 Life is Strange

Good Story, Bad Ending and an example of bad game design with what they did at the end.

I absolutely love this game but the ending felt so rushed and really disappointed me. The game had been so clever and so enthralling until the ending which felt lazy. Why would you end a game by forcing players make a choice that does nothing but destroy the prospect of a sequel? Sacrifice your best friend and be forced to attend their funeral or sacrifice the town and have to look at all the death you've caused... Both endings make you feel like an ass! Worst ending ever :(

17 Tony Hawk's Underground

Like really there are to ending you have to skate for a private tape or your guy punches the kid in the face crappy ending

18 No Man's Sky

After MONTHS of playing this and getting to the center of the universe, which was the whole point of the game, what do we get? A godlike entity that basically deletes your save data and restarts your game. DO YOU KNOW WHAT CRAPWE HAD TO DO JUST TO OPEN THE PORTAL?!?!

When you wasted your time for going to the center of galaxy,just get an restart and no any word's ending? what?

19 Mother 3

End of the world. After all the game put us through, after all Lucas has suffered, Earth is destroyed. HAL, why?!

Mother 3 doesn't have a bad ending as so much an ambiguous one. Hinawa proves there is an afterlife, so are the characters dead, alive in a destroyed world or in Lucas's new one? Are Claus and Hinawa even alive?

20 Jurassic Park - The Game

The game was pretty good, but in the ending, the lovable funny guy and the big hearted guy got killed while two whiny bitches and a dumbass lived. That's bull crap.

21 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

The part that makarov hang out is pretty cool, but seriously? Price is sit on there and smoke? Only that? Really? That's the reason why nobody loves the actual Call of Duty games

The endings awesome but Yuri dies. I loved Yuri. RIP. - Alpha101

22 Sonic and the Secret Rings

This should be number one. Just watch the ending cutscene to prove it.


23 Sniper: Ghost Warrior

Seriously, I mean just snipe the guy and then GAME OVER! I felt like somehow the devs had taken a good concept and destroyed the hell out of it with the ending, they should have been a lot more imaginative.

24 The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

The ending is what got this game such low review ratings. It ends at what should be the middle of the game.

25 Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

Sonic and his friends escape from the twilight cage, and when they return, dr. egg man greets them back by shooting their air ship and almost killing sonic and his friends. The game ends with sonic and tails saying "I guess we'll have to wait for the next episode." Yeah.

26 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

This ending sucks because it sucks

27 Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon


28 The Order: 1886

Have you ever played a game where it just stops in the middl- - Dominicmgm

29 Prince of Persia (2008)

Damn it! I really want to cry when I saw it
I know that

Didn't save after finishing the game. I've saved before Elika dies and I'll never ever finish it. :|

30 Minecraft Xbox 360 Version

Apparently when you kill the ender dragon, you get the ending. A 5-10 minute long boring ending with only words.

The game doesn't even end why is this here

The game never ends!

31 Rage

A fun doom 3 styled game, but an abrupt quick ending that was like a minute long, and a sequel we never got

32 Grand Theft Auto V
33 Risen
34 Devil May Cry

I should have been the one to get my character's voice acting RIIIGGGHHHTTT! - xandermartin98

35 Half Life 2

If you think halo 2 has a bad ending, watch this one, the game just stops :/

36 Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly
37 Assassin's Creed: Unity
38 Link: The Faces of Evil
39 Undertale

I SPECIFICALLY put the placeholder (Genocide) in there. - xandermartin98

40 F-Zero GX
41 Indigo Prophecy

that was really an awful ending to an awesome game! - HeLLbReAkEr

42 Mike Tyson's Punch-Out

Worst video-game ending ever! What happens is that you spend time fighting fighters to reach your goal to fight Mike Tyson. After reaching the top and defeating mike tyson, what happens next is a different story, all what happens is mike tyson and the other fighters congraulte U. Seriously though, no reward or anything, Wow! The worst video game Ending ever! Period.

43 Rampage (NES)

"congratulations". Seriously. Are kidding me? After hours of playing that ridiculous and repetitive game?

44 Streets of Rage 3

The game has multiple endings. The one I'm talking about is the ending when you put the game on easy.

45 Final Fantasy XIII-2

How can so far, when Serah Farron was even a weak character, that you supossed to give at Hope alive and dieying with no goddamned reason?

46 Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Angel Of Darkness
47 Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Only if their is no Bad Company 3
