An ending can make or break a story. In video games, it’s slightly more complicated as you still have the gameplay experience, characters and graphics to look back fondly on. However, there are some games where the ending is so dismal, so painfully bad, that you can’t help but think “Why”? We’re going to look at 14 titles available on the Xbox One or PS4 or both with such endings. Remember – everything is subjective. Maybe you disagree. Let us know your thoughts in the comments as always. Also, spoilers inbound.
Many stories that deal with time travel tend to become their own convoluted messes of paradoxes and twists. Quantum Break kind of suffered from this but still managed to maintain its thrills. Then we got to the ending where sympathetic antagonist Paul Serene was blamed for everything and Jack was asked to join Monarch. The hilarious part is that Jack actually sees two paths, much like how Paul did before making decisions. Then the game ends before we see his choice. And no, this won’t be the last cliff-hangar ending on this list.
