Are there any games that you enjoyed playing, but when you got to the ending, you were like, that's it?

After I win a championship in sports games such as basketball, and football, the endings usually seem pretty lame to me. I won the NBA championship on NBA 2K8 for the PS3 a little while back. I enjoyed the game overall, and thought it was pretty solid. But when I won the championship, it was a quick flash of my coach standing by the trophy and that was it. You would think that they could have given a lot more celebration than that? It seems that the basketball games in earlier systems I beat had even more of a celebration than this pathetic one for the PS3.

Hahaha.

Yea, that's a dumb statement. Why would you want a "big" celebration. It's like, you're lucky they even spent a couple of days for doing the coding and the programming for the celebration scene. Hell, you're lucky people ever invented the computer... think about that.

Fuck a celebration.

It's not a dumb statement, ya cheeseball. If you would have read what I said, the 'celebration' scene was about one second, which was the shortest sports game post championship scene I've seen before. And also the thread isn't just about sports game endings.

That's hairpulling. The ending of the game. I know it's not unimportant, but yo, why would you want an epic ending on any game.

I think of it as a bonus.

................of ANY game^???? I would've been pissed if Final Fantasy VII had a shit ending...............it didn't, but it could have. I guess the worth of the ending should be directly proportional to the amount of storyline involved in the game itself

I hate how some of my favourite games almost don't have an ending [example: Broken Sword]

Shit happens.

If you're thinking of the ending of the game, like a mission, or a quest or a final something something, something that leads to the sequel, like a cinematic or something, I wasn't referring to that.

I was referring to, like check2 said "Celebrations", maybe endgame cut-scenes... like that.

with sports game that understandable but there is a lot of games that either have a short ending or no ending at all and that piss me the fuck off i play games for 2 reason 1 for the entertainment of playing it 2 for the story and ending if i play a game i want to see how things end after all the bullshit one goes though can you believe some games after the final boss jumps to the credits goddamit i play no game to see the credits some games have endings but are too short a kiss a hug and a goodbye and thats it


there are few games that have great endings like MGS and FF series

Shenmue
So you play through 3 GD ROM discs and then end up getting on a boat and waiting for a sequel. Just when things was getting started. In de mean time SEGA cancels their Dreamcast production but your sequel is still announced. For this one Blue Moon in the history of gaming Europe gets lucky and gets a localization of the sequel while the US gets teabagged by Microsoft & SEGA. The game gets much more epic and action packed. Close to the end you feel something unravelling. It all goes a bit rushed on the last ,& 4th disc, and then.....you get a major opening, FREEZE FRAME, THE END, TO BE CONTINUED.
Ouch.

Halo 2
One night of gaming and I finished it. The ending sucked balls. Was this what I was waiting for? Damn.

Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy)
The game itself is unique in its way of storytelling. Feeling like the new age of old school games like Grim Fandango. The story goes great but at the end you feel it's all a bit too rushed. Too bad because everything was going great untill closing. The game maker himself acknowledged this. He is now working on Heavy Rain.\


On another note. Sometimes an ending can be crappy but it still gives you something new to be unlocked, thus it is forgiven. For me.
Sport games in general tent to dissappoint when finishing. A small flash of championship and that's it. Same goes for racing games. OR some times with a a victory lap.

What sucked for me was the ending of FFVIII. It was all a bit difficult to put the dots together. Or another thing is when you miss some bits and it goes by before you know because you was so into playing it.

Arcade games
GAME OVER
Please enter initials
New Character unlocked
now that can still be very cool. But the end movies are a bit bleh at times. Like with DOA. All that hard work for a few pretty pixels. Or a joke that is totally off.

i thought it was going to end epic but then it ended boring. plus no new metal gear to destroy

(rex vs ray doesnt count even though it was an awesome battle)

i though the same about no new Metal Gear till i use REX i think that battle more then makes up for it
and about the ending it wasn't boring i was surprise by the cementery scene(I remember when i saw the voice actor for Big Boss just before he appear i was like WTF!!!!!)but there were a couple of time you think he was about to die then he keeps on talking then his about to die again and still talking
what i find ironic is that he was revive just to die

having big boss there alive was just dumb. the man should have been dead. retcon right there. it was pointless to bring him there just to have him die. and the trailers showed snake having a gun in his mouth waiting to pull the trigger. snake not dying was expected but then people would shitstorms if kojima were to kill snake off.
