It’s always a shame to finish a game, whether it’s a long-winded RPG or a short but sweet first person shooter, only for things to just end. Not all abrupt endings are terrible (see The Last of Us) but some stand out as offering an underwhelming payoff as opposed to a strong emotional finish. Let’s take a look at 15 more of these endings here. Spoilers abound for recent games so you’ve been warned.
For all intents and purposes, RAGE 2’s story is stupidly simple. You meet the members of Project Dagger, fight General Cross and corrupt him with a virus that prevents more of his clones being made. The virus happens to be lethal to Walker, the protagonist, as well. But lo and behold, his friend Lily saves him, there’s a rendezvous with the Project Dagger members again and…that’s it. It’s not a terrible cliffhanger like RAGE 1 but that’s not saying much.
