fivefeet8 posted a thread about 'The Longest Game Ending' http://www.ngemu.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6050 , and I wondered what the shortest game ending was. One that I remember being quite short was Jet Set Willy (written by Matthew Smith, Software Projects) whereby Miner Willy (having collected all items in the house, 83 I think) finally goes to the master bedroom to get some well earned rest, as soon as he touches the pillow on his bed (Maria having gone by now), he then runs back through a couple of screens to the bathroom, shoves his head down the toilet and waggles his legs in the air, and thats it! The ending must only be about 20 or so seconds long, anybody have any quicker game endings :confused:

The numerous old games with the ending being only "Game Over" come to mind (or of course those that technically never end).

the "totally unexpected short ending" award goes to the valkyrie profile ending a, where after doing what is expected of you, odin just congratulates you, and that's it, the lousy credits roll. :(

If, by ending, you mean you lose control of the game to be shown something, then Myst 'cause it has NO ENDING AT ALL! Unless you give a page to one of the brothers. But if you finish it right, the game never ends! Oy! But shortest I've seen is Sonic 3. You see the ship crash and that's it!

The shortest ending I've seen would have to be the end of the original shareware DOOM game for PC. You fight your way through a world of monsters and then at the end you get thrown into a room with infinite monsters so you just die there in about 10 seconds.

Mine would have to be BOF for the SNES, if you get the bad ending (which I did). The Goddess starts crying, you feel sorry for her, she says she's beaten, and you leave. Then she laughs evily and the game ends-BLARG!!!!!!!

Well after mentoning Doom1, what about doom 2? A pile of text which you couldn't be bothered to read then a cycle through all the characters' deaths.

what about Double Dragon?
in the last room where you fight the boss, you see your girl tied up on the wall... :emb:
ok, so you kill the boss, and then your partner (if you had one), the ending begins:

the girl is released, you walk towards each other, you hold her, make out, GAME OVER.

even Karateka has a longer ending with the scrolling text after the make out part :D
