I just finished Bioshock, and it’s a great game, but the ending felt a little lacking. A lot of shooters, even great ones, seem to have crappy endings (I’m looking at you, Half-Life).
Nominate your all-time favorite ending in a first-person shooter.
I’ll go with the first Call of Duty for the PC.
Running up on the roof of the capitol building in Berlin and watching my comrades plant the Russian flag in the building, I actually got goose bumps. Seems corny, but that moment really had an impact for me in a way that games usually don’t manage to pull off.
