A video game ending serves as a capstone to the entire experience but it’s not necessarily the last word. For decades, there have been post-credits scenes that either tease a continuation, provide an extra bit of intrigue to the story or offer up some shock value. Let’s take a look at the most shocking examples here. Spoilers abound so be warned.
