Call of Duty: Black Ops Earns Award For Best Ending… Ever

You've played a lot of games in your day, and chances are that there are a few that you remember for not only their great story delivery, but memorable ending(s) as well. So what would top your list? Metal Gear Solid 3's salute to The Boss? Maybe even Final Fantasy X's revelation with Tidus and Jecht? Whatever it is, I'm willing to bet that it isn't a Call of Duty game, but that's exactly what won an award from Guinness World Records.

Guinness World Records has declared Call of Duty: Black Ops as the game with the best ending of all-time. 13,000 people were polled, most of which clearly hadn't started gaming until two years ago, and the favorites were compiled into a 50 game list. Now the question is, where did Guinness find these 13,000 people to represent the entire industry? The fact that Halo: Reach and Modern Warfare 2 also made the top fave says it all.
