Call of Duty: Black Ops Tops Guinness' "Greatest Videogame Ending" List

I cannot even begin to fathom the stupidity of everyone that participated in the making of this travesty. I am gonna get me a fucking sonar.

Black Ops beat KOTOR, Infamous, Ocarina and Portal. THE FUCKING ENDING OF SMB WII IS ON THE LIST ! DO THEY REALLY EXPECT PEOPLE TO TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY ?

Super Mario Brothers has a good ending? Really?

The game may be a classic.. But... Really?

What about Hey You! Pikachu? That ending made too many children cry.
Not the best, but I can't hardly remember the details of the endings of almost all the games on that list anyway.

But Portal 2? Finding out what the turret opera was = a very emotional Erana.

All i'm going to say is that Red Dead Redemption had a way better ending than Blops!!

time for the idiot flock to be culled again. i'm really ashamed to be of the same species as these people.

Airsoftslayer93:
Red dead redemption should have won.

Fuck yeah!

Swyftstar:
This is an odd list. Most of those games have crap endings and a few have endings that last only a few seconds. Do they mean the last portion of the game or the ending after all gameplay is done?

I'd say last portion. When I think Red Dead ending (which in my opinion is the best) i think of the barn finale. Gameplay goes on, and there is another secret-ish ending after that, but the real ending is that scene. Blew me away.

Techno Squidgy:

Best ending, Red Dead Redemption, hands down. First game to properly bring me to tears.

Right there with you. What i wouldn't give to play that game for the first time again.

I know what you mean. The second time around I'll bar myself from YouTube so some douche won't ruin the ending for me. But even though it was spoiled it still hit me hard. Such a powerful ending. And it's number six?! And Blops is number one?!?!?! Please don't make me laugh.

I guess the Guinness people consider 13,000 a big enough group to decide A WORLD FUCKING REGORD. Did they ask this stuff from 10-year-olds? Pokemon is on the list? And above stuff like Bioshock and MGS3? God, this list is dumb.

To all the people asking what the ending of Oblivion is, it's obviously when you get Horse Armour. Fucking Horse Armour.

OT: Wasn't Black Ops one of the worst in the series? And that's really saying something...

i'm sorry but all i hear is crying because someone dares have a different opinion to you, and furthermore the list the done by voters so if you really cared THAT much would have voted but you didn't so this list is just shit nobody cares about and there is a reason the list is AAA games. i personally hate indie games with a passion because they are poorly made and designed but you all eat it up because "it's from an indie developer!" there are way more things worth being concerned about than a list you don't care about putting a game you don't care about at #1 OK.

Well, since this new came in: www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/115902-Activision-Allegedly-Livid-About-Black-Ops-2-Reveal

We all know why is there on the first place of the list. So people will be like:

"HOLY SHIT!! Black Ops has the best ending ever according to the popular vote of a bunch of 7 years old!! and now a convenient sequel has been announced shortly after Black Ops became Nş1!! NOTHING SUSPICIOUS ABOUT THAT!!!"

double post

The original Fallout isn't mentioned on this list, and therefore, it is invalid.

Alright, I know this is a troll post, but still....

What Indie games have you exactly played, sir?

Red Dead Redemption, Portal 2, and MGS4 were damn good games and had damn good endings as well. They deserve to be higher up.

Mike Kayatta:
I mean, seriously, where's Ghostbusters for NES? I'm calling shenanigans.

I'm sorry but you're wrong ;)

Everyone knows that Contra had the best ending. I found it memorable.

Straightforward and simple. Even Commander Shepard couldn't do it in one game.

Hugga_Bear:
My first reaction was confusion, I genuinely couldn't remember the ending to Black Ops until someone mentioned ships. Then I remembered how utterly dull and shoddy it was.
Whatever, pathetic polling of people, 13 000? Really? That's tiny, what's the betting they got them all from the same demographic too?

Possibly from the same part of town as well. I would love to see how they selected this sample.

HavoK 09:
13,000 videogame fans is in no way accurate when you have a planet filled with millions of them...

and i can picture quite a few posts saying WTF NO SKYRIM?

Someone has beat skyrim!!?!?! I'v played it for 300hrs or so and haven't even done the main quest...XD

*Puts up flame shield*

I think Black Ops had a way better ending than Halo Reach, but that's mainly because that I didn't like Reach's ending (come to think of it I disliked the whole campaign).

You mad Escapist?

Seriously, grow up, all of you. I by no means agree with the survey results and frankly find it disgusting, but all the anti-COD comments and hate comments entertain me. What are we now, 12 years old?

Call me biased because I actually play the games, but you guys overreact every single time some newspiece like this comes out. Yeah, we get it, you hate COD, everybody does. Please quit bagging on another game regardless of how bad it is, just like how I want you guys to shut up a bit about the ponies and how awesome Skyrim is. I'm so going to get banned for posting a mildly aggravating post with my opinion in it. Calling it now.

Accidental double post.

We seriously need a delete posts option, wow...

Call of Duty: Black Ops Tops Guinness' "Greatest Videogame Ending" List

image

Black Ops beats out Halo: Reach and Ocarina of Time for best game finale of all time.

Many well-known series earned multiple slots of real estate on Guinness World Records' 2012 list of the top fifty videogame endings of all time, but Call of Duty led the pack with four winning titles, and 2010's Black Ops on top of the pile. Following just behind was Mario with four, then Assassin's Creed and Halo at three a piece. Here's the list in its entirety, bottom to top.

• 5. God of War
• 4. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
• 3. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
• 2. Halo: Reach
• 1. Call of Duty: Black Ops

The list was assembled from the polled opinions of "13,000 videogame fans" for publication in the Guinness World Records 2012 Gamers Edition book. The reasoning behind these selections will not be included in print, however Gaz Deaves, the tome's editor, had this to say about the process: "Everyone has an opinion on how to end a game whether it's an epic boss fight, a clever plot twist, or a 90-minute movie."

"This list recognizes some of the greatest endings and hopefully will get gamers talking about what are their favorites and why," he continued.

Obviously, this is a list that won't upset anyone, nor cause even one person to disagree with anything on it. But I jest; clearly this index has at least one glaring omission. I mean, seriously, where's Ghostbusters for NES? I'm calling shenanigans.

WHAT? D:<

HOW IS THIS A WORLD RECORD?

THIS IS SUBJECTIVE OPINION, NOT OBJECTIVE FACT!

I THOUGHT FOR SOMETHING TO BE A WORLD RECORD IT HAS TO BE NUMERICALLY BETTER THAN SOMETHING ELSE!

The highest jump, the shortest person, the largest line of paper clips ever created, NOT OPINIONS ON STORIES!!!!!!!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

/rage

I am ok... I am ok...

Just... WHY?

Obviously this list is crap, I mean putting aside the rest of the titles, I can't even remember Black Ops's ending!

The best ending(s) has to be STALKER: SHOC

Somehow, this springs to mind:

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/7.321083-Apple-Voted-Largest-Influence-On-Gaming-Industry

...And now I'm fairly certain there's some conspiracy against heads and desks everywhere.

Wait, this list is a bit odd. The endings for the games are all over the place. I can't say why one ending is better than another... Also, Black Ops? Really? What even happened in the ending?

Calm down everyone. It's just another one of those rage endusing troll lists. Ignore it.
We all know that the only CoD games that belongs on that list are CoD2 and MW3, and that KOTOR and Bioshock should have been in the top 20

CkretAznMan:

Now that I think about it Black Ops ends with your guy getting plot convenet schizophrenia which cures itself in time to save the day. You, having just brushed off insanity, go to a frieghter that may or may not be relevent at all and shoot the shit out of everyone on board. Your character and a couple overs including some bullet foder then ignore scuba diving 101 and dive straight to the bottom of the ocean, where there's a submerged "base thing". You shoot the shit out of everyone there too, flood the place, find the bad guy with only minutes on the clock, and drown him. You and your buddy then ignore scuba diving 101 again and go straight back to the surfice. The game ends with your guy getting the bends half way up and hallucinating that he's in a navy recruitment video while his lungs pop from the changing pressure.

Where's the saints row 2 ending? Walking in slow motion to board a helicopter and ending on the line "This is our city. We do whatever the fuck we wanna do.". I mean, come on. That was awesome.

I would have given Red Dead Redemption the top spot. I think it is the only time that a game has ever gotten me to legitimately tear up.

can't be bothered to find my old comment:
this is example of quantity over quality they asked a bunch of gamers not all gamers and sadly most of them are COD fans.
