In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

11 Best Video Game Endings Of All Time

Posted on Saturday, November 3 @ 09:47:05 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
First impressions are incredibly important, but the last few minutes of a game—whether right before the credits roll or in some cases after—often make or break an entire experience for the player. How does the story end? Are we left with some incredibly cruel cliffhanger? Does everyone live happily ever after? To pay tribute to some excellent storytelling, we've decided to highlight eleven games that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression.

Obviously, there are way too many games to possibly include all that are worthy of recognition, and some just have too many different endings that properly discussing them would be a headache and a half (I'm looking at you, Chrono Trigger) so please bear that in mind before you decide to chew me out. Okay? Thanks.

Oh yeah... SPOILERS are obviously bound to follow. If you weren't astute enough to figure that out for yourself, perhaps you deserve to have eleven of the best endings ruined for you. Alright, that may have been a bit harsh.

11. Spec Ops: The Line

For a game that at first glance appears to be nothing more than a shallow third-person shooter set in Dubai, Spec Ops: The Line is incredibly deep, and it's all thanks to the ending. To come to the end of the journey and realize that everything you've been doing isn't quite what you thought it was is not only shocking, but completely horrifying, providing a look into the tragedy of war like no other game has before. If it weren't for the game's stellar ending, there would be little reason to give Spec Ops a second glance, which speaks volumes to its final moments.  

10. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

Final Fantasy VII is heralded by many as the greatest role-playing game of all time. Gamers love Cloud and Aerith, going so far as to dress up like them at gaming conventions. Crisis Core is special in that it serves as a prequel to the legendary RPG, providing the epic and emotional lead up to the events of FFVII. As such, the very last moments of this PSP classic not only tug on your heartstrings but fill you with a warm sense of nostalgia as you are lead to the opening moments of Square's PSone masterpiece.
