What games' endings ultimately made your struggles and adventures pointless? In game, of course.
Red Dead redemption.
Why the fuck did I spend dozens of hours unlocking outfits to dress up John-John with? And why the fuck wasn't an option made to go back before?
It completely ruined the game for me. Great story, but horrible impact on a completionist gamer.
well the ending has a real closure tho.

Bioshock Infinite. Any game that tries to make a point that your actions are useless in the 'grand scheme of things"
It's literally the worst point to make in a medium BASED on player interactions.
didn't bother me really. i never do completionist shit in vidya since it's mostly autistic little things, but getting 100% in redemption was actually fun. i think it wouldn't have been as big of a deal to you if jack wasn't a faggot, right?
My problem was that I had no connection with the replacement character, and no reason to keep playing the game to dress him in outfits (I think some of the outfits were John only).
The point is that, you end up with a character who LOOKS stupid and has a shitty voice so you can;t even enjoy the ambience of the game any more.
That ending is the reason I'm on a lifetime boycott of EA, Bioware, and anything touched by either Casey Hudson or Mac Walters.
You must be deaf to storytelling if you think that was a pointless ending.
Desmond's story didn't end for another two games after that, anon.
Ubisoft seems to be trying to bring him back anyway.
While I was personally satisfied with it, I can see how someone might view it as invalidation of the Prince's struggles. I, however, don't, because
The ending was bad due to lack of narrative coherence, not lack of thematic basis.
Kojima is a complete embarrassment and a loser. He destroyed his own game to try and appeal to b-list directors. He even fired the star of the series in favor of following the advice of a blood-drinking Jew who bought the movie rights to his series ages ago.
The game is a complete fucking mess but has a good engine and tons of busy work so it's enough to convince most people it is a good game.
Yet and still, it is a complete piece of trash and Peace Walker is a better game.
