Many times I am dissappointed in the game endings. Usually because they just end abruptly. I often times have a lot of questions about parts of the story which were never answered.

I personally think the best ending to a game was in Return to Zork because the developers really wrapped up the story cleanly with no questions at the end. Also, we got to see each of the people or places where we were really stuck and spent many hours. Plus, at the time this was all very new to us. A close second would be Zork Grand Inquisitor - now THAT was a fun game!

So, which game for you has the most satisfying ending?

Syberia 1 and 2 had great endings, I thought that both chapters were tied up beautifully, and very movingly.

Hi cutiechix37 smile

I agree with you as regards Return to Zork, in fact I think many of the old games had better endings - which properly completed the storyline thumbsup

Cheers.

Do you think that in the case of newer games it's because the developers are already planning a sequel to whichever game, and therefore leave a few threads hanging, or a cliffhanger? (I'm thinking specifically of Still Life and Dreamfall, both games coming up for discussion here as having unsatisfactory endings. smile )

Hi Rushes smile

A cliffhanger ending is OK (for me, anyway) if I am aware there is going to be one. In my opinion a pre announcement should be made - as has been done with the Agon series.

Otherwise I consider it bad practice by the developer.

I get rather annoyed if I have paid full price for a game only to find I have to pay full price for others (sequels) before I have a "complete" story mad

Cheers.

Grim Fandango and The Longest Journey.
It's not strictly an adventure, but Twinsen's Odyssey had a good ending.
I can't remember the Zork games very well. I should probably replay them some time.

I tend to remember games that had bad endings more, probably because they make me mad.

Well these are mostly older games but...

Endings I loved bravo
Journeyman Project 3 - Legacy of Time
Myst
Journey to the Center of the Earth

Dumbest/most unsatisfying ending ever IMO:
Beyond Time - ugh - mad

Endings I have mixed emotions about:
The Watchmaker - seemed oddly appropriate for the story but...
Black Mirror 1 - ditto

Secret Files: Tunguska has a good ending.

Click to reveal..
Villians were defeated, some elements of romance (Nina and Max) and the final "action" scene is great.

I liked the ending to Keepsake. I thought that was a wonderful game.

My vote goes to Grim Fandango. Not only did everything get wrapped up nicely, the ending made me happy. smile
