Dragon Quest V

HELL!!!

After all the hell that the main character goes through, the romantic, cheerful ending at the game's conclusion is like eating Heaven through every pore of your body.

So after 3 years, this finally gets a video...kinda.

Oh, and the answer is The Last of Us. The Last of Us has the greatest ending ever by popular vote among the office. And they're completely right about that.

To me, the best ending would be defined by how well it wrapped up the conflicts present in the game in question. That being said, what an ending is trying to do can differ a great deal. After all, the best tragic ending is far from the best happy ending, or the best joke ending.
Because of this, you can have a lot of best endings, it all really depends on what you're looking for. I can't choose a favorite overall, so I will list off what I feel are the best endings based on what they were going for.

For most depressing ending I would go with Spec Ops: the line. Considering what happened up to that point, even the best ending is depressing. The other endings are much worse, with two going out on your death, and the last one ending on an ambiguous note where the main character just wanders off. All of them will make you feel empty for the right reasons.

For the most satisfying ending, I would say the everyone survives ending from mass effect 2. Many choice-based Role-playing games tend to base their ending around a last minute choice like mass effect 3, or they go the telltale games route of making the choices change little in the actual story. In Mass Effect 2, all your choices impact what happens on the final mission. Just how many members of your crew are left alive by the end of it is determined by what choices you made before it. While it is possible to save everyone, getting there is quite the hassle, and one mistake can send you back a few save files. So when you do get through it with everyone alive you feel like an accomplishment. Too bad they dropped the ball in the third game, otherwise, this might have been one of the best endings in video games period, considering you can import the save data from this game to the next one.

For the best bad ending, I would say that the Undertale genocide ending takes the cake. The emotions built up through the genocide really hit you hard. This is something that you have to go out of your way to do, so when you reach the ending, it just hammers home how messed up this route is. The fact that it affects further playthroughs of both the true pacifist ending, and further genocide runs is icing on the cake. The best part of this ending is that you are not required by the game to do it, the genocide route is a red button you have to make yourself press. Even if you don't want to do, the fact the game respects you enough to let you actively go against what the game wants you to do and destroy everything.

For the best joke ending, the dog ending from silent hill 2 is the only one I can think of right now. Considering that the joke ending does not force cameos like latter silent hill games, and requires you to go out of the way to get, unlike "The White Rooms" joke ending. All in all, it's weird enough to be a joke ending, but not obnoxious enough that it becomes annoying.

That's all the ending I can think of at the moment. I am too tired to try to talk about any more right now, so I will come back latter.

EarthBound's ending had me smiling for days. I was so immersed in its world that, on my way back home, I was stopping to tell so many NPCs goodbye, including the hint salesman. Ain't nothing like a happy ending.

It's too bad that no amount of people buying EarthBound's VC release will ever lead to a Mother 4, or even a Mother 3 translation. Best we can hope for is more Mother in Smash, which we were probably gonna get anyway.
