What ever happened to ending games on a high note? With this list we honor the video game men and women that didn’t make it before the credits rolled. Get ready for the top 5 games where you die at the end! And spoiler alert of course.
5. Assassin’s Creed 3
The death of Desmond Miles in Assassin’s Creed 3 was a big shock to us. After starring in the first three Assassin’s Creed games his story ended with him sacrificing himself to save the world. Sure, it was a hero’s death, but that didn’t make it any easier to deal with.
4. Shadow of the Colossus
In Shadow of the Colossus you pay the ultimate price for killing 16 innocent giants in order to bring a lost love back to life. Ironically in the final battle you are turned into a Colossus yourself and killed by humans. It’s not all bad since the girl does come back to life and you are reborn as a horned baby.
3. Walking Dead Season 1
Many gamers were touched by the death of Lee Everet in first season of the Walking Dead. The protagonist had done his very best to protect Clementine. Now it was that same little girl that had to make the impossible choice of letting him turn into a zombie or killing him on the spot. What a sad ending to such a great game.
2. Halo Reach
The last mission in Halo Reach has a very simple objective … survive. However it doesn’t take long before you start to realize that that’s impossible. All you can do is fight off as many enemies as you can before you inevitably die. This sacrifice wasn’t in vain as it led to the discovery of Halo and ultimately the demise of the entire Covenant.
1. Red Dead Redemption
We absolutely loved playing the tough cowboy John Marston in Red Dead Redemption. So imagine our surprise when he suddenly gets shot to bits at the end of the game. In a brilliant move by Rockstar the game continues after the death of the main character. As his son you get a chance to settle the score and avenge your father’s’ death which is just awesome.
