Whats the most depressing ending in a vidya game?

Ace Combat Zero.
You know all the shit you did was for nothing.
The ending instills in you the issue we have today that a culture of war pervades many areas of the world, and that those areas most likely cannot be saved and will simply disappear amidst all the wars.

Ending B or D of Nier.

New Vegas is pretty depressing in that no matter how much good you did, you cant change human nature. Blood will always continue to spill and nothing really changes. Wouldn't be surprised if we nuked each other again.

Fucking Drakengard, every ending was depressing, even the secret one after getting 100%

I think my childhood ended then.

The B ending in Valkyrie Profile, Covenant of the Plume.

Your dad loves you so much he can't bear to see his son taken from him so he has the valkyrie take him away for his son's punishment for abusing the plume.

Fuck you for not playing the game.

Terranigma for SNES is the fucking worst ever.

You spend the game rebuilding the overworld only to find that, to finish the job, you and everyone from your hometown has to die. You get to spend one blissful idyllic last day in your hometown with your family and friends--who are unaware that they're about to be destroyed along with you--and then you have one last dream that you're a bird flying around the world you sacrificed yourself for as the credits roll and you die.

It always makes me a little uncomfortable since my MC was a STRONK BIGMCLARGEHUGE with a loli mage as a pawn. When The pawn's conscious is placed in Arisen's body, but the girl voice stays the same Plus I picked Simone for giggles and it just ended up being all around weird

All the friends you make die and in the end you find out that all the fighting you did was pointless since everyone is going to die or go hollow. How is that not depressing..?

Mass Effect 3

dark souls has rather depressing ending. No matter what you do, the age of dark will come sooner or later.
>>
>>262286226
Well come on man. In Dark Souls 1 it was established that the "fire" will eventually go out and you're living in a black world. Also your an immortal destined to die painfully a thousand times only to sacrifice yourself for a loss caused. Then Dark Souls 2 came along and fucked with the established lore.
>>
>>262286834
The fact that all your friends moved to Majula in Dark Souls 2 and so few died seemed rather silly.

Sekien no Inganock gets an honorable mention though, for being the most depressing happy ending ever.

>Terranigma
Afterwards, Ark departs to defeat Beruga. After having conquered the professor, he returns to the underworld to defeat Dark Gaia. The victory over that entity brings forth the destruction of the Darkside. In the end, however, Ark realizes that having been created by Dark Gaia, he, along with the village of Crysta and the underworld, shall now vanish with the Devil's demise, though it is implied he and his loved ones in Crysta will be reincarnated. He goes to sleep, after being told by Light Gaia that he, as creator and defender, is what the humans would call a god. Ark's last dream pictures him as a bird flying above the world that he helped to exist, watching it grow older.[8] An epilogue plays which shows Lightside Elle at her original home. There is a knock at the door and she answers it. The game then ends.

You're projecting, I never called it "pretentious tripe". It's ham-fisted shit. It's not vague at all, you can clearly see what the creators were going for and you can clearly see how they missed the mark.

DmC's ending has to be up there. The game ends with demonic monsters running wild in a ruined, mostly destroyed city. Regular people are being slaughtered en masse. And the hero does not give a single solitary fuck about them.

has there ever been a From game with a happy ending?
>>
>>262288619
What they were going for was a story about a man who went nuts and fucked everything up with good intentions, and I don't really see how it misses the mark at all. All the fourth wall stuff is window-dressing. Don't tell me your feelings were hurt by "do you feel like a hero yet?".

The implication of Elle opening her door is that it's death. She's oblivious to her impending fate and the knock is... she's dead. T______T

The whole game is also sentimental, weepy, and tragic as fuck, just like many SNES JRPGs.

Yes. A bombastic, glorious massacre simulator with a wickedly ironic character arc. They succeeded entirely.

I didn't find the ending "depressing", quite the opposite. I even opened fire upon the evac team!

No, you're just a moralizing moron who can't appreciate how delightful it is to KILL EVERYONE IN DUBAI.

YOU'RE the one adding the pretense of morality; not the game. There's nothing "pretentious" about Spec Ops: The Line. It's just a great military shooter with an ironic narrative, that's all.
