11 Best Video Game Endings Of All Time

The conclusion of Rockstar's open-world western comes in two parts. First is the tragic death of the main character, who in his final act, lays down his life to protect his family. This is particularly heart-breaking in light of the fact that as John, you've spent the entire game striving to reunite with your family, just to have them taken away from you in an instant. Then there's the epilogue which centers around John Marston's son and quest for revenge against the man who killed his father. That final showdown is incredible.
Criticize Halo: Reach all you want, but you can't deny that the title's final moments are some of the best in all of gaming. Those who know the story are well aware of the impending doom that faces our protagonist and the entire planet. Attempting to hold back endless waves of Covenant as Noble Six while your life dwindles and the screen begins to crack, was an incredible use of the first-person perspective. There's hardly a more emotional way to end a game than with the death of a main character, and experiencing that through the eyes of the heroic Spartan was downright amazing. Honestly, how many interactive endings provide such a punch?
