The Best Game Ending Of All Time Is…

Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer’s Edition book is out and that means a whole host of gaming records – some of them genuine records that inspire I’ll-never-beat-that admiration if not why-did-they-do-that head-scratching (most Pokemon memorabilia collected) and other interesting facts (All The Small Things is the best-selling Rock Band DLC).

And then there’s this. The best game endings of all time. It’s been voted for by readers of Guinness World Records 2012, so blame them if anyone as 13,519 decided this list was right, but whatever. This makes for faintly depressing reading.

50. Resident Evil 4
49. Star Wars: Knights of the old Republic
48. Ratchet & Clank: a Crack in Time
47. Crysis 2
46. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
45. Call of Duty: World at War
44. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
43. Half-Life 2: Episode Two
42. Super Metroid
41. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
40. New Super Mario Bros. Wii
39. inFamous
38. Fallout 3
37. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
36. Gears of War 2
35. Bioshock
34. Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty
33. Sonic Adventures 2
32. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
31. Kingdom Hearts II
30. Mass Effect
29. Super Mario Galaxy
28. Sonic the Hedgehog
27. Metal Gear Solid
26. Assassin’s Creed II
25. Assassin’s Creed
24. Shadow of the Colossus
23. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
22. Kingdom Hearts
21. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
20. Super Mario Galaxy 2
19. Mass Effect 2
18. Grand Theft Auto IV
17. Portal 2
16. Assassins Creed: Brotherhood
15. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
14. Halo: Combat Evolved
13. Halo 3
12. Pokemon Black and White
11. Super Mario Bros
10. Heavy Rain
9. Final Fantasy VII
8. Metal Gear Solid 4
7. Portal
6. Red Dead Redemption
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

Call of Duty: Black Ops. The best ending in videogame history. Call of Duty: Black Ops. Higher than Ico. Higher than Shadow of the Colossus. Higher than Red Dead Redemption.

Sonic Adventures 2 has a better ending than BioShock, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Half-Life 2 Episode Two.

Silent Hill 2 isn’t even on the list.

There’s nothing more to be said or that can be added to this. What an awful, awful list.

    This is why you can’t ever trust the public to vote. You get thousands of complete IDIOTS voting for Call Of Duty because they think it’s the best game ever. Typical Call of Duty addicts. And Halo Reach second? I might as well give up as a gamer.

    Where the fuck is GTA:III for that matter? Bioshock at number 35 is ridiculous.

  • This list makes me both sad and angry. 2 Call Of Tedium titles in the top 5? Bioshock at 35? I didn’t have much faith in humanity before but it just took another hit.

    METAL GEAR SOLID AT 27!!!!!! NO,NO,NO! call of duty sells but that doesnt mean its a good game, transformers 3 made over a billion dollars and that film sucked big time. why do people fall over themselfs as soon as the term ‘call of duty’ is mentioned, it sells by name alone. games are becoming more like films, the bigger they are the emptier they are.

    I think most of you need to look at the bigger picture. I’m a CoD fan and i agree this list is terrible. A few question does spring to mind though, who exactly took part in this ‘vote’ , where was it taken, the ages of this group and most importantly why the heck is this number ‘13,519’ so ridiculously low? im sure thats just a fraction of how many serious gamers are out there.

    whenever i see a survey or vote about games i take so much time and thought goes into it. I once took part in a VGA vote for YOUR best game and it took me a few days to complete it.

    I mean come on, 40% of the games shouldn’t be in the top 100.
