Bit of a community thread this. Surely by now everyone's seen that ridiculous "top 100 videogame endings of all time" that missed about a million of the games that *SHOULD* have been in the list, and disgustingly put Call of Duty: Black Ops at number 1 (and even then, got the sodding ending completely wrong!)

So what would you stick in the list?

Obviously this thread's going to be spoiler-laden but just the mention of a game title would be enough, or a vague hint at why the ending made you want to hug your games console / PC.

Go team!

I'd nominate one or two of the following:

Ico and Shadow of the Colossus - No brainers these :) Both tugged at the heart strings.

I was going to mention Fahrenheit, but that's just crazy. For what it's worth, I thought Blops had a fairly good ending. Definitely not the best ending ever though.

FF7: Crisis Core on the PSP had a good ending, liked it.

Recently, enjoyed the ending to Saints Row 3.

I thought it'd be a bit naff to mention Saints Row 3 but I absolutely loved the ending / last mission :) Definitely more deserving than Blops.

Also quite liked:

Beyond Good and Evil

Even thought Halo: Reach had a superb ending too.

The Wind Waker and Super Mario Galaxy were crackers.

It's Portal isn't it? I mean, how couldn't it be Portal? The only other thing it could be is Plants vs. Zombies.

Super Luigi Galaxy! \o/

Portal 1 + 2, any Zelda game, 'Splosion Man, for me. Odd about SotC, as much as I loved the game, the ending didn't really do much for me.

First two Yakuza/Ryu ga Gotoku games I liked, especially the inappropriate song over the credits.

Both in fact. Not so much the game ending itself (though they were both ace), but the lead up to the end - in both cases real nail-biting stuff and guaranteed to make you want to go right back to the start and go through the game again.

Limbo's ending was fantastic. Under-stated and subtle but a real HOLY SHIT moment.
