I have different viewing habits to most people. I record whole complete seasons’ of shows and watch them all at once. In some cases, the Sopranos, the whole series. This year I have finished about 5 shows, from beginning to end. The ending were very important to me because I based almost my whole memory of the show on the last episode.
So, this week’s poll questions is:
How important is the end of a game?
I watched the whole of Star Trek: Enterprise earlier this year and quite enjoyed it. As much as any of the other modern Star Trek shows. However, the last ever episode really disappointed me and now I can’t get that feeling out of my head. Don’t even start me on the last ever Sopranos episode.
The point is that sometimes the ending can ruin the show for you. Is it the same with games?
In my opinion the ending of Half-Life was quite bad and the ending in Half-Life 2, a little disappointing. However, the action ending in Episode 1 was good and, for me anyway, overshadowed the rest of the mediocre game.
I plan to explore this idea a little more in next week’s poll but for today it is just about endings.
What was you favourite and worst ending, and why?
