My favorite video game endings (no spoilers)

Contact

This is probably the most meta ending of any video game I have ever played. The game was a basic RPG, but the ending has always stuck with me. I’ve never played a game that made me feel like a bad person at the end. The developers didn’t have to do the MC like that.

The worse part is they use you to do it, jerks.

Ghost Trick

Once you beat the game, you will feel lied to. It hasn’t lied to you. It’s done from the point of view of an unreliable narrator(s). So you and the character are making the wrong assumptions. It doesn’t matter how good you are at putting things together. This ending is unguessable.

I am replaying the game to see if there are any clues, and there are. But they are subtle, but they are definitely there. Hiding and laughing at you because they know you won’t think about them.

Fire Emblem : Awakening

I can say that both Ghost Trick and Fire Emblem have almost exactly the same ending and villain twist. Which is why I like them both. 

ALMOST.

They are like 50% the same ending, with stories that couldn’t be any more different. If you play them, you’ll understand the similarities. I think this game actually feels like you could deduce the ending, unlikely but maybe.

But you probably won’t figure it out either. And that’s what makes the game fun. Because the game literally gives you the answer, but you’ll ignore it.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

It’s the only game I feel like the villains may weren’t wrong for trying to stop you. Sure they were evil, but at the end of the day, they never lied to you.
