We all love a nice, clean ending where everyone goes riding off into the sunset to happily live out the rest of their days- but we don’t always get one. Sometimes, things just don’t pan out that way, and what we’re left with instead is games that hammer their brutality and unrelenting cruelty home with even crueler endings that devastate us to our very core. In this feature, we’ll be taking a look at fifteen such endings.

It goes without saying, but owing to this feature’s nature, there will be major spoilers ahead for every game we speak about. So if you see us beginning to talk about a game you’d rather not have spoiled for you, go ahead and skip to the next entry.

PERSONA 3

Persona 3’s ending is an unpleasant one in a slightly different way- while we do end up managing to beat the larger threat and save the world and all that, it ends up extracting a heavy toll. The main protagonist ends up sacrificing himself to keep Nyx sealed away. It’s a much more personal loss, and sure, in the grand scheme of things the good outweighs the bad- but it still hits you like a ton of bricks.
