I think with a lot of tv shows i wouldn't say they have "Bad" endings, yet a lot have lacklustre endings. Very few good to great shows know how to end. I'm surprised Peter Jackson has come out and mentioned how rushed he was on The Hobbit. Guillermo Del Toro was living there for years, then pulled out. Surely some story boards were on the board?ReplyDelete
One of the worst game ending I've experienced is Fallout 3's original (pre-DLC) one.ReplyDelete
The game's mechanics give you carte blanche to wander around picking and choosing how and when you're going to finish various quests. But when you get the end the game twists itself in knots to try and justify making your character walk into a fatal, radiation-soaked area to save the wasteland. Regardless of how you've played the game to that point and despite there being a radiation-immune super mutant available to do that job safely.
