You can’t always have the perfect ending. Whether it’s a difference in vision or expectations, some games just don’t end how you’d like them to. But while some endings are received poorly by some fans, others may find them to be somewhat endearing. Let’s take a look at 10 video game endings that divided their fanbases. Spoilers abound so be warned.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor
That Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor’s story veers off course from the original lore is one thing but the climax comes out of left field. When finally facing the Black Hand, Celebrimbor is separated from Talion, the Black Hand commits suicide, Sauron is reincarnated in his body and Talion suddenly has to fight him in a QTE battle. Got all that? Once he succeeds, Celebrimbor wants to peace out but Talion wants to make a new Ring of Power, thus setting up the events of Shadow of War. Overall, it felt like a strange way to set up a sequel rather than provide any real closure for Talion but he still got his revenge. So there’s that.
