Skyrim ending.........

WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT SHIT!!!!!!!!

Jezzascmezza:
Borderlands.

You spend the entire campaign travelling to this vault that's supposed to have all this amazing treasure inside it.
And what do you find when you finally get there?
Nothing.

/thread

There is no contest. Borderlands ending was a disgrace.

Oh God, where do I start. Does anyone remember game called Pariah? Mother of all shitty cliffhangers. Not that it was particularly interesting to begin with.
As for the more recent ones I could remember it's LA Noire, Dragon Age II, Fallout 3, Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Also despite my love for the series MGS has some of the prime examples of complicated, confusing, convoluted endings ever.

Well there the anime Big O. What the hell? It didn't make sense at all.
Also the other anime Soul Eater is the worst offender due to the fact the anime did its own thing to seperate itself from the manga.

Vault101:
Red Dead Redemption

no, seriously fuck that game

fuck that game for ripping out my heart and stomping on while sadistically yelling at me and telling my all my hopes and dreams are doomed to fail while punhing me in the face and making me cry

fuck that game

Can't agree more, it ruined my weekend when I completed that game :(

Also, don't know if it counts, as it was just shit overall, but the last book in the Twilight series???? Was she afraid of angering her fans by writing a realistic conclusion???? Absolutely crap ending.

Halo 2 for me, I was so pumped at the end and then...yeah

The Shadowlord:
The Black Magician trilogy had a sort of disappointing ending. Not the worst ending ever. But it felt kind of rushed.

Agreed, good build up, then the old "Hum can't think of an ending, just stick in the standard
"hero saves the world thanks to macguffin!"

Film has to be I am Legend (my fault for reading the book!) and now their gonna make a sequel!

Everyone's said the obvious choices, so allow me to throw a curveball: Mario Party DS.
No, seriously. The cutscene begins by fading into Bowser and son tied up with ROPE. A material that can be easily destroyed by fire and sharp things, two resources that the Koopa King carries around with him all the time.
But that doesn't matter. We have all five Star Crystals, and so it's time to see what they make when they combined: a minigame.
Specifically, a Bejeweled clone with triangles instead of gems and half the content. Bowser goes on to explain that he wanted to collect all the Star Crystals because according to Koopa lore, which they have for some reason, "When the Star Crystals fall from the sky, a really fun challenge will be revealed." A really fun challenge? Your species fortells of really fun challenges? Why couldn't it be "the bravest of Koopas will find their wits tested" or "happiness will be bestowed upon he who gathers them?" But no, we're going with the first thing the translator could think of, apparently.
Wait, what? No, I don't want to share the minigame with him, he shrunk me to the size of a coin and left me and all my friends for dead, you idiot!
Oh, and apparently Bowser is an idiot too, because he doesn't take the opportunity to kill them and claim the minigame as his own, because now he really likes the Mario gang, blatantly disobeying a fundamental Mushroom Kingdom law.
But the credits music is really good, so that's alright, then.

Mahoromatic

Not that this show is particularly good, but if it wasn't for that ending the show would've at least been honest with itself.

I mean, was an overly dramatic ending like that really necessary in a goofy fanservice anime?

Still no mention of Neon Genesis Evangelion, huh?

persona 3 (note i had the psp version without fes)

Ragnarok185:
Skyrim ending.........

WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT SHIT!!!!!!!!

The Skyrim ending was not shit, it was just a disappointment that seemed to end when things were getting good.

I hated the ending to Rage... It spent about 15 hours setting up what could have been quite an intriguing final chapter. Especially if they had brought into it some Authority boss character for us to de-throne... but no... just sent us into a high tech complex. Not even a boss fight, just a sort of short horde mode before ending extremely abruptly with no narrative.

VERY disappointing. More-so based on the fact that I actually quite enjoyed the game.

beniki:
Assassin's Creed 2.

Assassin's Creed 1 had this nice story, with some compelling imagery thrown in for conspiracy nuts and nerds with nothing better to talk about to over analyze.

Assassin's Creed 2 builds up the plot, and the mystery, until-

I was so dissappointed by that as well. It ruined the franchise story for me. I still played it because I enjoy the gameplay, but the story has never been the same.

Earth 2160. Warning, SPOILERS AHEAD!

You fight against an Alien threat that popped up out of nowhere and discover later that a crazy Scientist is to blame, who awakened these Aliens from a cryogenic Slumber or something. You fight and defeat him and the evil Aliens on their Homeplanet. Ending Sequence: You see a Portalthingy in Orbit above a Planet, it starts to activate and...
Credits roll.

I liked the mass Effect Games so far; Well the third one is bundled with Spyware, but whatever. You know there's an overarching thread to be dealt with eventually, but in game one and two, you deal with a more immediate Threat. I like how they handled this, even in the second Game where you see a Vision or something of a giant Reaper-fleet or something beginning to activate.
You dealt with the Major threat and you're the Hero of the Day because you don't know when the Reapers are coming. So nothing has really changed about the overarching threat: The Reapers are coming to fuck with you and you'd rather they didn't.

In Earth 2160, there is no overarching Threat. You just know that there is something coming out of that Portal in the Moment after the Game stops. Is it a Threat? I dunno. Is there another Earth Game coming out? No.

Borderlands is another Game with a shitty Ending. You fight against the evil Corporation to get to the big Treasure the Angelthingy in your Head talked about.

You defeat the Boss and nothing happens. You get some treasure, but i gathered better Stuff during my Journey. After i beat the Game the first time, i thought it was glitched or something. But no, the angelthingy just wanted me to kill the wimpy end Boss because it's evil and wants to kill everything or something.
Not much of a crowning Achievement. Even from a Story Perspective, you might have just ran around the World, killing random bad Guys until you gathered enough money to retire. You don't have a "chosen one" Ability that enables you and only you to kill the bad Guy. The evil Corporation i fought before was a larger Threat to me then the "Destroyer of Worlds".

I don't get much recognition for saving the World. A few random Weapons, that's it.

Even "Oblivion" was better in that regard. It gave me the Oblivion Gates, which basically lead to Hell. The bad Guy wants to make the World into a hellish Wasteland where everything lives in pure Agony.
For all i know, the Angel of Borderlands is the real bad Guy in disguise and just tricked me. I don't know what the Monster thingy would have done to the World if i hadn't killed it.
The Game is like: "Bad Guys over there, kill them!" and isn't doing a very good Job at that.

Borderlands has a very nice Atmosphere, which makes the lackluster Ending even more jarring.

Bleh.

Highschool of the dead and Mahou sensei negima are decent competitors for the prize.

As for games and movies...
Eh, I can't think of anything.

High School of the Dead is still going on. The Anime might not be renewed for a second season however. And Mahou Sensei Negima the manga JUST ended but yeah I have to say that the ending for it pretty much sucks.

Yeah, I was talking about the ending to the anime of hotd.

As for msn, there are still a couple of chapters to go, isn't there? Unless the raws are out, I guess.
Well, it'll still be pretty much impossible for that ending to redeem itself.

The worst ending to a game is easily MGS 4. Whilst Fallout 3 and quite a few others have been worse story-wise at least they don't take 2 hours of desperately boring cutscenes to get it over with.

Freezy_Breezy:
Fucking Fallout 3. A shit-smeared "Go find your daddy" storyline, an absolutely worthless moral choice at the end that the game literally berates you for making one way, and the most absurd and fucking retarded line of dialog EVER from the super mutant; and that fucking Ghoul REGENERATES under radiation. But we wrote a shitty ending and you're damn well going to have to play it no matter how many logical inconsistence there are. Oh, and if you want a better ending, you're going to have to BUY IT.

One of many reasons Fallout 3 sucked balls next to New Vegas. Fuck Bethesda.

Also Liberty Prime; funny lines, but yay, a big overpowered robot to do all my work. This is what I like. /sarcasm

This. This. So much this.

Fallout 3 is the single most predictable story line i've seen in any RPG.

schwetty balzac:
Fallout 3 had a bad ending? Guffaws abound.

It seems those that adhere to this statement have never played Knights of the Old Republic 2. Fallout 3's slightly weak ending looks like award-winning writing of the highest calibre compared to KotOR 2's drivel.

KOTOR 2 didn't HAVE an ending. It just finished.

OT: DA2 takes the cake for me. I actually sort of liked it up till the third act when it just got really shit. This is what happens when you rush stuff.

Skyrim ending.........

WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT SHIT!!!!!!!!

The Skyrim ending was not shit, it was just a disappointment that seemed to end when things were getting good.

Err... which one exactly?

To explain, all of the major quest arcs (each guild, the dragons, the war) has its own ending, as you may come to notice if you have only done the war (or the dragons). The dragons one, depending where you left it, makes sense (Paarthurnax decision, stay with the blades or take your place amongst the Dovr as an equal) and the whole build up to the final fight with Alduin is pretty epic, the Thieves guild one is pretty awesome actually (Nightingales...), as is the Dark Brotherhood.

only one that is a bit weak is the War itself... if you choose the wrong side for your preferences (and race). But then, it has to be like that or the world makes no sense. To the Empire, or the Stormcloaks, you are NOT the all-conquering hero, Tullius or Ulfric are, it's 'their' war, not yours.

Flailing Escapist:
Just from looking at my shelf... Uhhhh - RAGE.

RAGE had no 3rd act.. It was just.. uhhhhhh

Definitely RAGE. I KNEW it was going to be a shit ending from reading ahead, but I was STILL shockingly disappointed.

Vault101:
Red Dead Redemption

no, seriously fuck that game

fuck that game for ripping out my heart and stomping on while sadistically yelling at me and telling my all my hopes and dreams are doomed to fail while punhing me in the face and making me cry

fuck that game

Surely that's what made the ending great?

Well I suppose not great, but I felt genuinley attached to John Marston by the end, and I think as part of the narrative it worked well.

I even replayed that ending to see if t wouln't happen ):

Definitely RAGE.

About Borderlands.. I actually really enjoyed the ending for that story wise.

That whole last area in KotOR 2 just screamed "We couldn't be assed to finish this crap properly."

There's a difference between not wanting to make an ending, and not being able to make an ending.

zidine100:
persona 3 (note i had the psp version without fes)

That's funny, I've always strongly disagreed with the majority that hates the ending. I had the FES version, and I decided to not play "The Answer" because I felt the ending was so incredibly satisfying.
I never understood what people complained about.

I thought it was a great ending, and I also thought it was incredibly obvious what happened.

While Valkyrie Profile Lenneth is easily one of my favorite games, it sadly has a horrible ending. Here´s the thing: you have a war between two goodly races witch will end with either peace or Ragnarok. At the same time, some of the good gods rise arms against each other and the human world is slowly going to hell because of wars, plagues and tyranny. All of this is totally thrown away only to make the protagonist and her dead boyfriend get united...and then the game ends. Disappointing deluxe

Eye of the Beholder:

Handshake. End. Title Screen.

Yeah it pissed me off and I paid full price for that game.

CoL0sS:
Oh God, where do I start. Does anyone remember game called Pariah? Mother of all shitty cliffhangers. Not that it was particularly interesting to begin with.

Oh god, THAT game... I'm actually on the fence with that one, seeing as how

Now that I think about it, I don't really see the cliffhanger in the ending. I mean the ending is pretty self-explanatory as to what happens to the main character.

The Shadowlord:
The Black Magician trilogy had a sort of disappointing ending. Not the worst ending ever. But it felt kind of rushed.

Yeah I never understood their reluctance to take the power from the arena I can't really see any down sides and it would have allowed them both to survive.Though I suppose it isn't really an ending now because there are new books in the series.

DarkRyter:
Fallout 3, without DLC.

FAWKES. STOP BEING AN ASSHOLE.

Oh god. I know. I fucking loved Fallout 3, and lost my shit when I realized my level 20 character with 60+ hours put into it was lost forever because my stupid ass saved inside the Project Purity control room.

Assasin's creed: Brotherhood

First my reaction was right before the credits

Then went to this~

Gizmo1990:
What has been the most dissapointing ending toa game/book/film to you? For me:

Game: Final Fantasy X-

Movie: The Matrix Revolutions.

Book: I cannot think of a book I read that had a bad ending but I hated the ending to the last Codex Alera book, First Lord's Fury for one reason. It was the last in the series. And it was soooo good that I wanted more.

Edit: Fixed spoilers so people will not bitch about me revealing the ending to a 12 year old game and a 10 year old movie.

I can't remember the name of the movie, but that one where there's a rich person that's bored with his life and meets his brother after a long time. His brother tells him to go to a company that will make his life more entertaining. They screw with him the whole movie and in the end he's alright with it. I would have killed someone.

Anime: Kampfer: The 11th episode builds up a cool fight between the big bad and everybody then episode 12 is this weird Christmas episode.What a fucking disappointment, I figured that maybe the next OVA would resolve things but nope it's basically a retread of episode 11.

Hell Girl Cauldron of Three: The big twist is ok but in the end the whole plot is made pointless by the fact that Ai's Successor completely fucks it up and Ai's right back to being the Hell Girl. It was a stupid ending to a season that in all honesty should have not existed.

Games: Wild Arms 1, It's ok except for one thing, Cecilia decides to forsake all her duties of her recovering country to go on adventures with Jack and Rudy. It would be fine except she's had an adventure already and should be helping her ailing country that would benefit from a figure to rally around like a princess who saved the world.

Oh dear God I just went back and re-watched that ending.

Turns out it wasn't a cliffhanger. Just poorly executed ending. Thanks :)
