Achieving the true ending in a video game can be quite the struggle, as one fulfills different conditions and confronts tough challenges. But some endings just aren’t worth the hassle, either ending the game in a less than fulfilling fashion, being outright depressing or just a complete waste of time. Let’s take a look at 12 terrible endings that were also really tough to unlock. Spoilers follow so be warned.
Kingdom Hearts 3: ReMind
As a series, Kingdom Hearts has its fair share of cryptic secret endings that required an extraordinary amount of effort to unlock. Kingdom Hearts 3’s Remind DLC is no different – in order to unlock the Secret Episode and receive the “true” ending, you first had to defeat all 13 bosses in the Limit Cut. That means being level 99 with the best equipment and dealing with high damage unblockable attacks. Once that’s done, you face Yozora from Verum Rex in a much tougher fight than anything before. Depending on whether you win or lose, the ending will be slightly different but the scene with Yozora, waking from a dream while in a vehicle is a dead ringer for Final Fantasy Versus 13. How? Why? No one but Nomura can answer that question.
