    Those moments when you beat a great game....

    Just beat Tales of Graces f loved the true ending almost cried because it was so touching and that in the fact that i wanted more just when Sophie grew up, had me smiling throughout the entire ending even through the credits. Great game wish there was more like it.

    Share some of your moments that you had with a great game

    You liked the ending that much eh? Honestly Tales of Graces f was pretty forgettable to me, even with the extra storyline extension or whatever.

    I'd say the most fulfilling and enjoyable ending I've experienced is Final Fantasy IX's ending. It wasn't too corny or sappy, yet tied up all the loose ends while still leaving a little bit to the player's imagination. Persona 3 had a great ending too, though in a different way. Pretty freakin' dark.

    I havent played a great game in far too long.

    Arkham City was probably one of the only ones this year. And now that i think about it, that was released last year. Thats even more depressing.

    I get sad when I beat great games, because that's the end of it.. Unless it's like Fallout: New Vegas and you can play it 100 times and find something different each time.

    Yeah, my first great game I finished was FF7 and I went straight back and did it all again this time with a game guide to cram in everything I missed first time. The walking dead would be the most recent, I havent felt the desire to replay it though, I did a little bit and I felt the different choices didnt impact enough for me to go through again.
    My first game completion that meant something to me was sonic the hedgehog, I dont quite remember but I think there were no saves or restores so you had to sit and blast through it all and I was only about 10 or 11 and it was the first game I remember doing that.

    Every time I beat a really great game (which is super rare) I get a little sad, because I'm never ever gonna experience that game again for the first time.

    Same thing when watching a very good movie, or reading a very good book.

    Completing Eternal Darkness on the GameCube felt pretty awesome.

    Also, Resident Evil (PS original) and finally breeding a Gold Choccobo on FFVII.

    Launching a Scud missile into a US base on Desert Combat (mod for BF1942) and taking a out most of the enemy team.

    Jade Empire, great story and build-up to an epic ending. Along with Dragon Age: Origins, which I felt had one of those great bittersweet endings.

    i hate endings in games, series, movies. i like rly long lasting games, preferably those that u cant rly beat like mmo´s.
    though if i have to pick one game which had amazing ending(s) i have to say chrono trigger. they made something amazing adding 7 ( i think it was 7) different endings.

    The latest great game I beat was Saints Row The Third. I had an amazing time playing it in co-op, and the ending (before the whole space thing) was awesome.

    I'm one of those people that hardly ever finishes games, they have to be really great before I do. Others I just get bored of.

    The ending of ME has me almost in tears, when everyone thinks Shepard is dead but suddenly he/she pops up and seeing the squad members reaction to it.
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    So long ago that I finished a truly great game. Too many years now of ever replayable unending games like Diablo 1,2,3 and WoW. Inbetween a lot of Citybuilders like Caesar and Pharao or shooters like Doom, Quake etc.

    Have to go back to experiences like Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Zak McKraken, Dungeon Master or the Magnetic Scrolls Adventures.

    So, in short: the internet.

    I'm not really sure if it is more satisfying that I beat it or more depressing that its over.

    Uncharted endings are always good

    Portal 2, great end to a great game <3

    Red Dead Redemption. /thread.

    No but seriously, that game had me amazed from start to finish. Sure, it's possible to finish the story and then carry on sandbox mode without a story, but...I'll never experience it again for the first time!

    Same with Black and White 1 and 2, or the 3 first Jak and Daxter/Ratchett and Clank.
    Believing in the Dominance theory/Alpha theory when it comes to dog handling, is the same as still believing that our planet is flat, moronic. Give your dog a better life, stop bullying it because you are afraid of something that doesn't exist.

    Pretty much exactly how I feel, though for me it hasn't been a super rare experience. That kind of experience however, has lessened with each console generation that comes out. I thought it was just me growing up, but after experiencing it again with Tales of Vesperia, I realised it's just the quality of a good RPG for me. It's getting harder to find high quality RPGs that can create that feeling again.

    This is true.

    Nothing beats that new video game smell.
