The 6 best game endings of all-time (and how BioWare would ruin them)

Video game endings tend to feel a lot like an afterthought. Whereas a bad movie only ever consumes two hours of your life, games can have you playing upwards of 100+ hours before reaching the finale, and quite often that payoff is woefully underwhelming. Two big-names examples in just the past few weeks include Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, where the conclusion was given about as much attention as bug-testing in a Bethesda game, and Asura’s Wrath, which has a “true” ending that acts as nothing more than a gateway for “closure DLC.”

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is half SOCOM, half Left 4 Dead, and half-finished (review)

From the moment Operation Raccoon City starts, you know you’re not sitting down to the typical Resident Evil experience. The title screen music is a remix of one of the franchise’s most familiar themes, seemingly as a throwback to Marilyn Manson’s edgy take from the first film’s soundtrack.

Trailer: Resident Evil heroes fight back in new Operation Raccoon City multiplayer mode

Capcom has revealed a new multiplayer mode for its upcoming non-canonical spin-off to the Resident Evil series, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. In the four-versus-four online “Heroes Mode,” players will take control of classic good guys (and gals) such as Leon S. Kennedy, Claire Redfield, and Jill Valentine to fight against the other team, consisting of villains such as Hunk and Ada Wong. Sadly, there has been no mention of Tofu, or which side he will take if and when he is included in the game.
