It is true that the success or failure of a game does not completely depend on the plot as the movie side, but that does not mean that fans will be willing to ignore if you make a bad ending game.
There are endings that make fans turn away from their faces because they are too bad, there are also endings that divide the fan community, causing them to argue over who is right and who is wrong. As a result, the future of the game, or the whole series, doesn’t know where to go. The following is a list of 10 endings that will kill the entire series.
Choose any type will die – Mass Effect 3
Mass Effect was once a very popular AAA role-playing game and was expected by many gamers, but with Season 3, I don’t know why they made a very god-damn ending. In the previous 2 parts, every action, the decision of the gamer made the story line change, thereby changing the ending in many different directions. Knowing this, gamers were extremely careful with their choices in part 3, because they wanted to see what BioWare would write for the Commander Shepard anyway.
However, in the end, gamers know that what they did before now is hard work, plowing dozens of hours for the most, everything ends up with just a very simple choice. : choose a color you like. No matter what you did before, now there are only 3 choices, and whatever you choose, Shepard must sacrifice. At that time, gamers feel like I’ve just been fooled into such a big trick. BioWare then added another ending, but in general, it did not change anything, and what happened then it can not be withdrawn.
It not only defiled the Mass Effect brand but it also made fans turn away from this game series. The proof is the sequel, Mass Effect: Andromeda, has failed miserably, especially in terms of sales. After that, many sources believe that EA has “frozen” this series in the immediate future. Maybe to find a way to revive Shepard here.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Admittedly, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is one of the best open-world action games of all time, but at the same time it deals a fatal blow to the Metal Gear Solid series because there’s an ending. causing a lot of controversy (or can also be considered as no end). Although the plot twist in MGSV caused the fan community to split, one thing made them even more angry, it was the end of the game that was too startling.
