10 Weirdest Game Endings

EDIT
|

Gaming is known for its fair share of the eccentric. Strange and peculiar anomalies occur throughout many titles due to numerous factors, but mainly, developers simply wanted to leave a lasting impression. The 10 Weirdest Game Endings represent the Outer Limits of our own Twilight Zone of entertainment. Within many of these endings, developers chose to abandon conventional storylines in order to hit us sideways with events we did not see coming. Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, we present our list of the 10 Weirdest Game Endings.

WARNING: Some of these videos contain mature content. And yes, they all contain spoilers.

    Close Encounters of the Germ Kind

    Dr. Mario

    Dr. Mario starts off our list of theĀ 10 Weirdest Game Endings because those talented enough to beat this historic puzzler were shocked to find its evil viruses were actually aliens from space.

    Surviving Deletion

    Star Ocean: Till the End of Time

    Your party finds out that their entire galaxy is simply a computer simulation and that everyone in it is a part of "4D Space" (which is kind of like a giant MMORPG). Star Ocean 3's ending consists of a huge philosophical debate the characters have after retaining consciousness when all of 4D Space was deleted.

    The Point-and-Click Sing-Along

    Limbo of the Lost

    Limbo of the Lost may have plagiarized a ton of its content, but its ending proved that Majestic Studios were capable of something... original, to say the least.

    A Child's Imagination

    No More Heroes

    Much of No More Heroes' plot revolved around Travis' half sister, Jeane, bestowing her revenge on Travis for having to face her father's sexual abuse all by her lonesome. But the ending of NMH hints that the entire story was simply the random thoughts of a child (named Jeane, of course).

    Rewriting History

    Conker's Bad Fur Day

    In its ending, Conker called out that Rare did not fully beta-test Bad Fur Day, so they rewrote the story mid-ending and allowed him to become king. Unfortunately, they forgot one huge detail.

    Giant Cannibal Babies

    Drakengard

    This ending to Drakengard must have been the prequel to Attack on Titan. Nevertheless, giant cannibal babies evolving into free-floating, empowered forms is a perfect halfway point for a list of the 10 Weirdest Game Endings.

    The Girl Dies, But You Still Get Some

    Far Cry 3

    Thanks Citra, but we were only supposed to be here on vacation. Blood-covered boobs and demonic sex rituals were not in the brochure.

    The UFO Endings

    Silent Hill Series

    The Silent Hill franchise is known for having its fair share of weird, but its ongoing UFO endings are probably some of the series' most kooky moments.

    Killing the President, A.I. Control, But Who Am I?

    Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

    You find out that everything is either a lie or an A.I. simulation, society is run by a group of Illuminati-like controllers named The Patriots (who are all dead), a nuclear-equipped submersible fortress crashes onto Manhattan, and you fight the President of the United States atop Federal Hall. Oh, and he fights you with Doc-Ock arms and samurai swords to boot. WTF?

    The Girl Dies, But You Still Get Some: Part Deux

    F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin

    Alma repeatedly freaked us out throughout the F.E.A.R. series, but it isn't until the rape scenes of F.E.A.R. 2's ending that we were the most disturbed. Getting strapped into a chair and seduced by this previously-dead Psionic tops our list of the 10 Weirdest Game Endings.
