Everyone loves a happy ending but all’s well that ends well doesn’t always apply. Video games are no exception – for all the world-saving done or retribution earned, some endings can feel bittersweet when weighed against the consequences. Let’s take a look at 15 such endings here.

Drakengard

Drakengard

The endings for Drakengard range from tragic to straight up “WTF”. In one ending, you can choose to seal the Watchers, the main antagonistic force, away in another dimension. But this requires protagonist Caim and the dragon Angelus to give up their own lives. It also doesn’t help that Caim’s sister Furiae, who he’s trying to rescue, is also killed. Even in the default ending, the world is saved from The Watchers but Angelus sacrifices herself to become the new seal (plus Furiae still dies).
