I'm a horrible gamer. I admit it. To compensate, my style of gaming is to play with my brother- I sit on the couch and read comic books while he plays a game. I follow the storyline and solve the puzzles for him. Alternately, I read to him from the cheat sheet.

Hey, it's a contribution.

Anyway, endings to games that I have participated in. Any guesses?

The girlfriend croaks. The villain turns into an Alien who you have to beat. And the rest is essentially silence.

Fireworks!

Cut to the opera house- when the lights dim, it turns out that everyone is infected.

Hey, you sound like my sister! Oftimes, I'll just say "You can play if you figure out this dang puzzle for me." Once or twice, she's actually done it. I think this is why I like Mega Man so much. =p

And your fireworks ending reminds me of my mother standing in front of me asking if I'd see fireworks if I beat the game repeatedly.

Chocobo

Girlfriend croaks- Ninja Gaiden...3, I believe. That was a long time ago, though.

Villain is actually an alien- Mega Man 2. (Although you learn later that it was actually just another robot Wily made)

Silence- ...?

Fireworks- Super Mario, of course. (Even if it isn't, it still works)

Opera lights go down and everyone's infected- Parasite Eve.

Fireworks ended the first Monkey Island game, so that's my guess.

It seems strangely appropriate that Chocobo would know the endings to many console-based games.

Bring the PC-ending-spoilers on, I say! Bring them on! Well, after I've found some breakfast.

saepiroth

i'm not so sure that chocobo got the first one right; it looked like that was the ending of just ONE game... probably an obscure one at that.

In Metroid (NES) Samus Aran (sp?) is really a girl. Just the opposite, to quote the simpson's own Mayor Quimby, "The chick in the Crying Game is really a man."

HUGS!

I like the very idea of this thread. I'll throw some more into the general pot. One game per line, starting now:

The savior in exile.

Mortality regained.

Eternal discovery waits.

Spike! For you! In your head!

He finally smiles.

Splinters of time will never mend.

A new god rises. Anarchy's promise. Life's good at the top.

The book is shelved nowhere.

<<Spike! For you! In your head! >>

Either "Diablo", or "Volleyball Kombat" ;)

Here's another addition to the potluck: "The head (The second one) is tossed into the devoid, but the Legion had to be sacrificed."

Drastic:
Mortality regained

Is this from Planescape: Torment?

Drastic
09-03-2001, 02:05 AM
DarkPrince: yup. I loved that the endgame could be tackled in a couple different approaches.

Ranchoth: likewise, a yes. Er, to the first at least. And I think a Volleyball Kombat secret level off of Hell would have been a great addition to the game--the Doom Knights could have batted Fallens around. Alas. :)

Totoro: Nope, at least not intentionally--never played that one. It's from a text adventure (folks usually call it "interactive fiction" these days), and a rather recent one at that. One other item in my potluck additions also comes from the IF genre.

For the other ending-crypticisms, the only thing I can think of is for "fireworks!"--and that's the ending stage in the lightgun game "Point Blank", where how many targets on the castle you zap determines the length of the fireworks display.

And to think, I hang around r*if, lurk on IFmud, have played and judged annual comp entries for the past four years, and I don't recognize the splinters of time or any of the other endings.

I'm going to go cry now.

How do you get to the cow level in diablo 2?

Sounds like FF7.

Drastic
09-03-2001, 02:04 PM
pcubed: righto. I always wanted the ending to be extended, the Wanderer raising an army from all the towns he's saved along the journey, coming back and taking over the vault.

And I've made lno cry, which is always when things go too far. The splinters of time thing referred to Adam Cadre's "Shrapnel" (http://adamcadre.ac/games.html), which for sheer visceral impact, in my opinion, very much outdid the more-lauded "Photopia."

The other IF ending was "eternal discovery waits", referring to the classic Infocom title "A Mind Forever Voyaging."

But the rest will remain unrevealed for now, until more eyes get put out. :)

How about these. Sorted in order of obscurity, most well-known first:

Another star brings a new hope for 40,000.

A candid home video is made.

The new ruler kills his wife.

The new ruler kills his best friend.

Couldn't be Space Quest I; although you used the Star Generator to make the Sariens go kablooie, I don't recall any hint whatsoever that it either made a new star or helped 40,000 people.

There's a candid home video in one of the possible endings to The 11th Hour, I think.

Here, I have some more to solve, one game per line. These are from both console and PC games.

-------------------------------------------

You saved our kingdom, so now let's have some cake!

The witch is trapped under a rock.

The princess turns to you and says, "Thank you for the important thing!"

Your brother falls endlessly as some evil guy looks in a magic mirror and laughs at him.

You see a rabbit's head on a stick.

The salesman warps around while congratulating you, and then he leaves. You ride off into the woods.

Purple raisin-like blobs dance for you.

Your dream ends, and you wake up. (Actually, I can think of at least 3 games for this one.)

You ride away on a snowmobile with someone else, and who the person with you is depends on actions earlier in the game.

After getting past the slot machine, you're left drifting through space... forever...

The villain still lives, in the body of one of the two characters you thought had escaped!

Everyone in the virtual reality machine is saved from the giant bald heads.

The upside-down castle is destroyed, and the world is safe for another hundred years.

The penguin is never really the ultimate enemy.

As the dark side of the world fades from existence, so do you...

Mahaloth
09-09-2001, 03:01 PM
He finally smiles.

Final Fantasy VIII

Here are some tougher ones. I will divide them into their platform.

PC

He wanted the boy(you).

Those four wizards? They were evil. The bad dude was actually the good guy.

You hit the motherload(if you brought a pick axe).

The secret is that the world is a computer generated experiment run by a malfunctioning robot.

The murderer was the cop.
NES

Zande is not the main villain.

SNES
The villain is not actualy the bad one. Your party actually is(what a mind-frell this was). The whole game, you were actually fighting good, not evil.

Playstation
Schala is freed and the entire game has been a sidequest.

Everyone at Fishbell celebrates, each one representing different parts of the world.

Playstation 2
Your charachter doesn't really exist. He was only part of someone else's dream.

Mahaloth

Greyson3, correct; the other four of mine are still up for grabs. Three of them are PSX games, if it helps.

You saved our kingdom, so now let's have some cake!
Super Mario 64?

Your dream ends, and you wake up.
Is one of them Super Mario Bros. 2?

You ride away on a snowmobile with someone else, and who the person with you is depends on actions earlier in the game.
Metal Gear Solid.

The upside-down castle is destroyed, and the world is safe for another hundred years.
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

Schala is freed and the entire game has been a sidequest.
Chrono Cross?

teppei
09-09-2001, 04:04 PM
the upside down castle one: castlevania:symphony of the night.

the one about schala: the 'real' ending to Chrono Cross

how about these:

it turns out that Earthlings were the masterminds behind the evil supercomputer, and your party dies destroying them.

your air balloon drops everyone in your party off in their hometowns, and you wind up in a bed of roses with your best friend who had sacrificed her life so that you could live.

The scientist character is teaching his class about what you did to save the 3 planets and the star of your solar system.

After seeing the destroyed golem off, the princess goes off with the android and the treasure hunter to seek out more adventures.

your girlfriend is brought back to life after seeing a dragon fly across the sky.

Yes!

Your dream ends, and you wake up.
Is one of them Super Mario Bros. 2?
Yes! Some other possible answers are Little Nemo and Adventures of Tom Sawyer, both for the NES, and Zelda: Link's Awakening might count for this as well, even though it was someone else's dream.

You ride away on a snowmobile with someone else, and who the person with you is depends on actions earlier in the game.
Metal Gear Solid.
Yes!

The upside-down castle is destroyed, and the world is safe for another hundred years.
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
Yes!

Here are some more to solve:
---------------------------------------------

The world was modeled after the fantasy worlds of four people from Earth, and the butler was the villain.

You sail off on a boat to explore the world.

The goddess chooses to become mortal.

teppei
09-09-2001, 05:14 PM

I want to say Lunar, but I could be wrong.

shmigheghi
09-09-2001, 06:03 PM
Slot machine one: Star Fox

The waking up and its a dream one can also be some SNES Mickey game...I forget which one. I think it's Mickey's Ulitmate Puzzle...something with ultimate in the title.

Witch under a rock: Banjo-Kazooie

Rasin blobs: A Boy and his Blob...maybe.

Candid home video: I think its an alternate ending to Chrono Cross.



Now for some of my own:
You get out of the tunnel just in time before the door closes and didn't get engulfed by the flames from the exploding final boss guy. Your comrades are waiting for you.

You get on a ship for Hong Kong.

Castle falls back to the ground...stars reunited...everyone happy again.

Congratulation!

Bad guy gives daughter back to rightful parents. (Names of bad guy/daugter would make it far too easy...)

A man and a woman lean against the railing and watch the flames. The identity of the man depends on choices made in the game's last sequence.

shmigheghi, could be. I have to confess that I've never finished it even though I actually own the darn game. Not the one I was looking for, though. The PSX ones are all RPGs, though, if that helps at all.

it turns out that Earthlings were the masterminds behind the evil supercomputer, and your party dies destroying them.
Phantasy Star II?

your air balloon drops everyone in your party off in their hometowns, and you wind up in a bed of roses with your best friend who had sacrificed her life so that you could live.
Dragon Warrior IV.

The world was modeled after the fantasy worlds of four people from Earth, and the butler was the villain.
Secret of Evermore.

You get on a ship for Hong Kong.
I'll guess Shenmue?

Castle falls back to the ground...stars reunited...everyone happy again.
Paper Mario. Wonderful game.

Gee, can anyone tell what genre I've played way too much of? :)

Gosh, I'm not getting many of these. Here's some I know:

You make it through the hatch and onto the surface of the legendary lost planet.

Having saved the world and your people, you are turned away from home, because you no longer fit in.

Turns out, your father was an evil god, and you have to kill your brother.

You have to destroy your own mortality in order to die.

Yes! It was on the secret path through the black hole, or the other dimension, or something like that.

Witch under a rock: Banjo-Kazooie
Yes!

Rasin blobs: A Boy and his Blob...maybe.
Maybe, but that's not the one I'm thinking of. Here's a hint: it's the ending to a game that was the basis for a recent catch phrase that was all around the Internet...

The world was modeled after the fantasy worlds of four people from Earth, and the butler was the villain.
Secret of Evermore.
Yes!

I'm not sure about the one where you're on the side of evil all along, but are you thinking of Terranigma? I remember the elder turned out to be the villain, but he was the one who sent you on the quest in the first place.

Could also be Crusader of Centy, although Final Fantasy 9 would apply.

How about these:

PSX-

The world is saved from becoming a parking lot.

The world is saved, but you lose the girl. (Unless you beat the Epilogue)

Turns out your glorious leader is actually insane, and trys to blow up the sun. You of course, stop him and the war he started.

A peasant ends a war and becomes king, but only after using and manipulating everyone around.

PC-

The cloaking device fails in hyperspace, destroying the traitor's ship.

You go through the portal into the unknown, looking for conquest.

The mysterious figure is not who the mental patient thought he was.

NES-

After creating the legendary fifth sword from four other swords, you go to destroy the big computer in the floating tower.

Dreamcast-

After being rescued by your brother and stopping the crazy transvestite, you finally escape Antarctica.

You get all the passengers to their destination.

Well, some of mine were gotten, others weren't. I'll answer the ones that I think are too obscure, leave the one's you should be able to get.

PC

He wanted the boy(you). No one has gotten this??? This was the easiest one!. Keep Trying

Those four wizards? They were evil. The bad dude was actually the good guy. This one is Zork: Nemesis.

The secret is that the world is a computer generated experiment run by a malfunctioning robot. Come on, it's a classic!.

The murderer was the cop. The answer was Dagger of Amon Ra.

SNES
The villain is not actualy the bad one. Your party actually is(what a mind-frell this was). The whole game, you were actually fighting good, not evil. Someone had to play this game! Yeah, it's a totaly mind-numbing when you realize what happened. Keep guessing

Playstation
Everyone at Fishbell celebrates, each one representing different parts of the world. I'm hesitant to answer this one, but I will. It's Dragon Quest VII(Dragon Warrior VII).

Playstation 2
Your charachter doesn't really exist. He was only part of someone else's dream. This one is part of a series.

John Corrado
09-10-2001, 12:39 PM
Unfortunately, most of the ones I actually recognize have already been answered. However, I believe that "Another star brings a new hope for 40,000" is Sid Meier's Civilization.

So I'll just confuse the issue by throwing out some more. As a warning; they're all PC, and some of them are pretty old.


You crash-land your orb in San Francisco.


You defeat Lucian IV, and unite Eastrealm and Westrealm to fulfill your destiny.


You lead humanity into a mass conciousness, becoming almost God-like in powers.


You defeat the rogue AI and manage to save the Net.


Having made your millions, you retire and become President of the United States.


You are named Emperor, and therefore never have to hear the phrase "Plebs are needed!" again.


Having saved Germany from the Apocalypse, your names are forever legend.

This is my first post at SD. :)

Here are some of my favorites:

- All of your mortal friends die, and you go to your final punishment.

- A mysterious group plots your downfall.

- There's fireworks...and a parade. :)

- The world is saved, but inhabited by dinosaurs.

- You will yourself right out of existence.

And, it's an arcade game, but still worth it:
- The President takes you out for a hamburger.

Mahaloth is correct, of course--mine was Phantasmagoria, home of one of the dumbest protagonists in the history of gaming.

PSX

Two artists, a photographer, a talk show host, a model, and you... but what happened to the Snow Queen?

A flower blooms on the ruins of a city encased in flesh, which is kind of gross once you think about it.


SNES

In the end you get the girl, but God takes away your memories. Stupid God.

An unsuspecting hero with inexplicably wind-blown hair and his bratty girlfriend usher in a new age with pencils and backpacks and lunchboxes for all. Hooray.

A reincarnated seagull gets some hot Scandinavian loving.

The main characters both die, but then go back home to see their stupid baby boy.

John Corrado, correct with Civ/Civ2. I really can't wait for the third installment to come out.

Resident Evil - CODE: Veronica.

There's fireworks...and a parade.
Possibly Super Mario RPG? Or its sequel, Paper Mario?

In the end you get the girl, but God takes away your memories. Stupid God.
Is this Soul Blazer? It's been years.

I guess it's been long enough. While the games I chose weren't very obscure, I suppose my descriptions of them were too much so. Here are the remaining three:

A candid home video is made. Final Fantasy VIII. I know someone out there has to have played this to completion, given all the obscure RPGs I saw out there. Oh well.

The new ruler kills his wife. Final Fantasy Tactics. Again, a big-name game, good enough for a classic re-issue. In this case, the ruler is your best friend, who ends up taking the credit for your victories. And marrying into royalty before eliminating it.

The new ruler kills his best friend. Suikoden II, one of the best lesser-known RPGs on the Playstation. In this case, you are the ruler, and this is the "worst ending", but also the only one that the majority of people who played this will see.

Yes! I guessed that for someone else's clue as well, because it was another aspect of the ending... but I guess I was wrong. Here's what I was trying to guess:

The villain is not actualy the bad one. Your party actually is(what a mind-frell this was). The whole game, you were actually fighting good, not evil.
This just sounds like such a cool premise, and I might have even played a game like this, but I can't figure out what it is! It sounds like it must be a RPG...

I don't know Salix. That sounds a lot like Terranigma to me too. The problem is that, in Terranigma, you we're fighting evil when you first fell to earth because you had to revive civilization. So you were always fighting for evil but not strictly fighting against good. Man I love that game. :)

-A load of wind up rabbits cross the road

-Yer pal you were sent to protect is in fact using you for evil purposes, so you take him down and escape the island

-The guild welcomes you back, having defeated the oncoming evil. You tell them in small talk to piss off but they say it is written in their ancient texts that you will return. (AND THEY DAMN WELL BETTER MAKE THE NEXT GAME)

-Having went through mountains of enemies, you finally lead the main boss under his own ufo and turn him into toast by making the big beam fire down on him

-You kick the main bosses head for a field goal

-You and your gang have established yourself as the best tag gang in the city

-You get arrested, thrown into a police car and carted off with a smug look on your face.

-The enemy you thought you killed once returns to make a deal but after careful consideration, you tell it to go to hell and blast it. However, the other couple that escaped harbor a secret in their pod.

-Your family is re-established as the royalty of the clan after you and your warriors take the pyramid stronghold from the captain and his royal guard.

-You and your babe snowmobile off into the Alaskan Wilderness

-Your find out your main instigator is your father and you reject his offer to take over the park.

-You finally blast the crap outta Mr. Smiley and use the train to escape the city.

-You head off to China on a boat...seeking vengence and a cute chick from your dreams

Well, no one has been able to guess this one. It's Tales of Phantasia for the SNES. Davos is the main villain, but he was trying to save his own planet. In the end, you killl him but the Spirit in the Tree ressurects him and they go to save his world. Throughout the game, members of your party stop and wonder what Davos is all about, but they ultimately decide to fight him anyway. WEIRD GAME.

Have to do a bit more than wave the stake. First you need to get the strobe light from the club (Is it The Jagged Nails club? I can't remember, the one Kitsune is in) and then use it to blind him.

- A young neuroscientist is disconnected from the colony ship. She is the last to set foot on the planet of the colony's origin.

- Drink a cup of real tea and step (most improbably) out of your starship onto the surface of an ancient world.

Sega (multiple platforms)

Homeworld. Good presentation on the story.

I have to say a few words about System Shock 2.
It's a great game, and it's just fine until you defeat The Many, at which point it starts going downhill. The ending sequence is disappointing. The big dumb shooting match is so un-shock-like, and the final cutscene, just bad. I think they just started running out of time, the game from The Body of the Many onward seems very rushed and totally different from the execution of the rest of the game.

Well wouldn't you freakin' know it. I thought I was in the clear until the last post was the answer I was hoping to give. Ah well.

Here are some purdy obvious ones:

1. You say a lot of stupid stuff and then another guy says a lot of stupid stuff and then you jump through a portal and there is no ending.

2. You say a lot of stuff that is not so stupid and another guy says a lot of stuff that is not so stupid and then you get stabbed and once again THERE IS NO ENDING

3. Your mystical friends come to your last-minute rescue and vaporize the bad guy...minus the cigar, that is.

We had freespace 2 up in the "Sacrifice yourself while aliens blow up the star".

BTW, did anyone else completely not get what that was all about? The aliens show up, there are many big battles, they bringnup the killer star fleet that could crush your whole species, and then...

they blow up one system (presumably including the jump points) and the games over?

ANd my character didn't die... he just... made a last minute jump and couldn't go bak to fight anymroe... yeah... so he went deep underground... sure.

You defeat the big bad boss. No one knows exactly why you just did this, least of all you, but you did. Then your best friend becomes a King through no virtue of his own and murders his bride, for no apparent reason. She may or may have been actual royalty. The game ends without even definitively telling you whether you lived or died.

The only ones I could guess have already been solved -- some (like Final Fantasy X) twice...

Here's some new ones.

--As you and the girl get out of the stolen prototype fighter, your commander gives you a medal. You and the girl smooch. Afterwards, the fighter self-destructs.

--You leave the boat and run along the beach, and find the mysterious girl that you thought had died in the castle, alive and washed up on the shore.

--The Bad Guy and his satellite fall from the gantry, causing the missile to explode just after liftoff.

--You, astride your horse, gaze at the top of the castle. The lady, standing at the top of the castle, gazes out at the forest. After a moment, you both turn away.

--You've defeated the four best of the best, one after the other, only to find yourself facing the hero of the TV show in the final battle.

--The final shot is of the American flag being raised into a sunset sky...but for some reason, it's conical, with two little arms and a few suckers....

All right, let's see one for the PSX. You beat the final boss lady, who regresses to a baby. You then gain the magical artifact for all power, but choose to use it in a silly/cute way. (For example, exchanging your face with your pet cat's.)

I can answer two: "Thank you for the important thing!" is from Cadash (Taito has its share of Engrish, although it's nowhere near as bad as some companies). "Two dragons soaring through the sky" followed by the girlfriend returning to life is the NES Double Dragon 2 (her fate was indeterminate in the arcade version).

Some arcade/Neo Geo ones. Be warned, a few of them are pretty obscure.

Three kids are playing the same game you just finished. Suddenly, the screen smokes, and all the enemies in the game (except for the final boss ) pop out. The kids flee in terror, and the enemies chase after them. A few seconds later, the heroes jump out and take off after the enemies. The chase spills out of the arcade and onto an empty street.

Just when it looks like the mothership is about to escape, one of the enemy pilots makes the ultimate sacrifice. The ship explodes and the enemy general, strapped to a table, falls out. Several enemy troops rush in and start cheering...and then the table falls and squashes him flat.

The enemy fortress bounces all over the screen, deflates, then suffers an explosion. Your character emerges from the vanquished fortress, then triumphantly sails toward the screen...and crashes into it. The badly-damaged character limps through the victory parade.

"See you tomorrow."
"Oh, don't remind me..."
"Sorry."
[laughter]

The heroes never find the last stone, only a roomful of treasure. They don't care about wealth, so they donate it all to charity.

The two agents, who have been at each other's throats for most of the game, reunite with their rescued loved on (sister to one, ex-lover to the other) at the base of the tower. They look like they're about to squabble again, but she pleads for them to stop, and they do. The agents part ways forever, the rescuee leaving with one.

The bloodthirsty warlord's army is sucked back to the black oblivion they came from. The sun rises on the city, battered but now safe.

All the wrestlers in the game run over the new champ (including a copy of the champ) and dogpile on top of him. There's a loud rumble, the pile shakes, and champ throws them all off.

The two nuclear warheads begin their descent. Your plane locks onto both of them and fires missiles at them, causing them to run into each other and detonate in deep space.

You finally break through the last of the enemy defenses and rescue your commander...who happens to be over 20 feet tall.

The undisputed champ revels in becoming "the strongest in the world". Suddenly, he's called out by a past champion, who claims to still be strong enough to beat him. The present and future champs meet in the ring...

The hero puts the final map piece into place, quickly scampers over to the location of the treasure, and digs like a madman. The "game over" shot shows him celebrating in a room bursting with riches.

The rebels gaze at the destroyed fortress with their rescued family members...minus anyone they had to leave behind if they didn't have all the keys.

One of my favorites - The agent reflects on his tragic loss and how he'll have to keep soldiering on regardless. He marches all they way back through the now-empty mansion. Just as he's about to get in the car, his girlfriend, thought to be killed, bursts out the front door alive and well.

By use of a clever bit of sabotage and a lot of frantic running away, you arrange for the main bad guy to off himself in a really nasty fashion.
Thief 2?

One of my favorites - The agent reflects on his tragic loss and how he'll have to keep soldiering on regardless. He marches all they way back through the now-empty mansion. Just as he's about to get in the car, his girlfriend, thought to be killed, bursts out the front door alive and well.
The House of the Dead. There are actually three endings: the normal ending, the good ending, and bad ending. You got the good one. I think that you have to complete the game without continuing (putting in more money) to get the good ending.

Sophie doesn't survive in the normal ending. It ends with a view of the mansion from the starting point.

The bad ending seems to occur randomly. I've heard that you get it if the number of continues is a multiple of a certain number. The bad ending is the same as the good ending, except that Sophie is now a zombie :(

Here's my contribution, a game that holds a special place in my heart. Please someone get it so I can reveal why! :)

* The main bad guy annihilates the world, leaving only you and him alive. But due to events earlier in the game, you have gained the power to completely recreate it, including, in a twist you discover after the final battle, the love of your life who was killed by the main bad guy. An epilogue featuring two evil characters who survived the world-shattering spell due to undead or magical power sets up a potential sequel.

DKW
07-07-2003, 11:43 PM
hebes - It was in Metal Slug 2 as well...guess not a lot of people bothered to reach the end of that one.

Diceman - Good ending: Either side with 80,000 points, continues don't matter. Zombie ending: Either side with a last digit of 0 (and under 80,000 points). Continuing increases the score by 1, so it has to be no continues or a multiple of 10. The easiest way to get this is to jump in on the final boss, since you always start at 0.

The reason this is one of my favorites? After seeing all kinds of terrible tragedies in video games that are completely unavoidable (and console games are several times worse), it was just so refreshing to have a game where, if you were good enough, you could avert the tragedy. It's a great idea, and I'm actually surprised it isn't more common. (Think more than few console RPG gamers might be with me on this? :) )

Apparently there was a scene filmed but cut from WC 3 where you find a message in Hobbes locker where he explains that. Still sucks because they cut it out. I think I saw it from some website.

You sell your soul to a Devil, and he gives you the world in return. Then he kills you and takes over the world.


This sounds like Dragon Warrior (1). Thatís not SNES, though.


Ok, these are easy. Actually, theyíve all aready been done, but what the hell.
-You finish what your surprisingly resilient brother couldnít, then climb down a hill with a skinny freak, while your murderer pompously tries to justify herself.

-You prove your moral superiority to your foe by nuking him, likely killing all your followers.

-Youíve triumphed, but the girl you like chooses her career over you. You then return to your home city, which hasnít been built yet. (Ok, a hint. Itís a fighting game.)

-Having conquered all your foes, you go to your new throne planet, where you and all your fleet are presumably brutally massacred by a giant lobster mech.


These are a bit more obscure.
PC:
-Though youíre killed, (maybe?) your tattoos inspire the villain to redeem himself. (Did anyone actually play this one?)

-Having taken out your brother, you squish the villain underfoot, and go home. Then one of your girlfriends kills a bartender, and thereís a lot of running around and screaming..

-Youíre given the choice between going to some kind of hell dimension, and pretending none of this ever happened, and going back to your annoying vanilla girlfriend. Iíd take the hell dimension. (GOD did this game suck)

-Yay! Youíve killed a stage magician, a tv psychic, a stage magician, a distinguished scholar, your father, your mother, and your brother! Now maybe you can get out of this STUPID HAWAIIAN SHIRT!!

-Youíve FINALLY got those damned tattoos removed.

-Youíve killed the devil, and mangled Christian theology beyond even a merciful Godís ability to forgive. You retire to heaven, which appears to be part of an office building.

-Holy crap! Thereís going to be a DEATH KNIGHT in the next one! Hoody Hoo!

-You sacrifice your body for AN ARMY OF UNKILLABLE ROBOTS! Kickass! Eat it, tribal wusses!

Arcade:
-Youíve killed the robot that was going to blow up the earth, but are taken out by the blast. Presumably you burn up on reentry.

-(This oneís REALLY obscure) You get paid! You have no illusions about having stopped the bad guys though, but thatís ok. Deep in your heart, you donít want peace, anyway.


Dreamcast: Man, I LOVED that thing. Still do, actually.
-Youíre damned to eternal torment for your arrogance. Itís not the place of a mortal to slay a god. (Kinda a downer ending, really. You can mitigate it a bit by playing the last save over again.)

-Youíve killed an evil radish and a giant fish-dog-bear-wolf-snake thing, but your girlfriend is still mad. You realize how similar the villainís situation was to yours, but thereís nothing you can do about it. (Hint: ďYou sacrificed her! You BASTARD!!í)

Is the first one Planescape Torment?

The 2nd one is definatly Fallout Tactics, or at least one of the endings.

Nope, not Torment. The other was Tactics, though. At least the 'bad' ending was fun, the 'good' and 'neutral' endings were way too happy for a Fallout game.

None of them were Torment, actually, though the 'damned tattoos' one could almost qualify.

-You finish what your surprisingly resilient brother couldnít, then climb down a hill with a skinny freak, while your murderer pompously tries to justify herself.

This is obviously Metal Gear Solid, the "bad" ending. Although obviously Metal Gear Solid 2 suggests that your murderer... wasn't. And we still have no idea if Meryl officially survived or not, since they basically dodged the whole question by not mentioning her.

Yup. (What couldn't Liquid finish? His sentence, of course. :))

From what I hear, the 'official' ending is the good one. Apparently after all that talk about 'living for someone else' and 'I was thinking of you through all the horror,' Snake and Meryl drifted apart after three or four months. :)

Much like Legacy of Kane and Fallout Tactics, though, the 'bad' ending seems to fit the characters and storyline better than the good one.

Either way, though MGS ending was pretty damn good, though I'll admit I was yelling 'WILL YOU JUST DIE!!!' at Liquid when he showed up in the truck.

And Otakon should definatly get his own game. :)
