Sonic Appears in Kotaku’s Top 50 Game Endings

Now, while this news may infuriate quite a few fans of other SEGA franchises, due to their specific endings not appearing in this list, but at least Sonic makes a showing in the forms od Sonic the Hedgehog (which we hope is not 06 ;)) and Sonic Adventure(s?) 2.

From a personal standpoint, while there are some good games in the actual list, like Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 and Starcraft 2, I fail to believe that CoD: BO has the best game ending EVER. But I guess that’s the issue with letting gamers actually nominate games in an industry that’s highly biased towards a big franchise.

  1. Shodow of The Colossus was 24 places too low, and Black Ops is definitely at least 51 places too high.

    It didn’t stand a chance of even being nominated, but Cave’s manic Shoot Em Up “DonPachi” has a great surprise ending…

    [spoiler] You play through the whole game, blasting the crap out of your enemies only to discover if/when you reach the end that the whole thing was a sadistic training exercise and you’ve been slaughtering your team-mates![/spoiler].

  2. Ooh! I’d also add Killer 7 to the list. The game’s so insane it’d give David Lynch a headache but the surprise ending is fantastic and puts many of the games on this list to shame.
