Well, people will have their own favourite game over screens, but I think that the old Sierra ones deserve a mention. Especially the Space Quest ones. Roger Wilco dies in some very unique ways!

List needs more Total Distortion's 'death by guitar warrior' game over screen.

Good job, Doctor, but I'm afraid you're hopelessly deluded. The clear winner, from a modification:

My two favorites, from Half-Life 2:

as well as any of those N64 Rare games that you quit and have to see everytime, like Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64

I did love the Quantum Conundrum messages. Though I wished there were more of them.

One of my favorites, in a similar vein: the first Jak and Daxter game
