We all love a story that ends with the protagonist riding off into the sunset, but sadly, that can’t always be the case. Some of the best games, in fact, end in devastating fashion, with either their protagonist, their entire cast of characters, or even their entire world significantly worse off than they had been in the beginning. And as hard as it is to experience these endings on that first playthrough, there’s no denying that those that are executed well do end up making quite a big impact. Here, we’re going to talk about a few such sad video game endings we totally didn’t deserve.

NOTE: There are spoilers ahead for every game in this feature.

RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2

Red Dead Redemption’s ending was already a shocking one, but its sequel somehow ended up topping it. Serving as a prequel and featuring a character that had never been mentioned in RDR1 as its protagonist, Red Dead 2 was obviously always going to go poorly for its main characters, but the way Rockstar pulled it off somehow managed to leave us stunned nonetheless. Arthur Morgan is built up throughout the whole game as an amazing character – probably one of the greatest video game characters of all time – so seeing him meet his cruel, untimely demise is a hard pill to swallow. Yes, technically, that isn’t the ending, and you do spent a healthy chunk of time playing as John Marston in the lengthy epilogue- but we all know how that ends as well, and it ain’t pretty.
