    Link's Awakening indeed has an awesome, touching, moving ending.
    I also loved Metal Gear Solid 3's ending, what a fantastic twist!

    I'm just about to finish Portal (finished all missions up to #19), I thought at first that there was just no storyline at all but as I went through the missions I realized there could be something cool about the end. Can't wait [​IMG]

    I think the two SNES games ActRaiser and Final Fantasy IV had some very meaningful and very worthwhile to watch endings that nicely cleaned up the stories.

    All of the Metal Gears have awesome endings [​IMG] . Sons of Liberty was a bit of a let down though [​IMG] . I do agree with you about Snake Eaters ending(I actually play Metal Gear for the story lines)

    I would say Portal has the best credits, but not the best ending. I couldn't decide what game has the best ending though. Several RPGs come to mind.

    Yeah you really need to play through the whole game to get the full experience of it.


    I knew this was about portal just from the title [​IMG]

    Mafia, a very sad twist. Max Payne 2 also has a very beautiful ending, with Max's usual metaphorical soliloquies.

    The first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for the NES.
    Wait ... was this list for the best ending or the worst?

    Link's Awakening was fantastic. I can't really think of any other endings that stick out in my brain. The only one I remember vividly is Halo 3 and that's just because it was really infuriating and really felt like a cop-out.
