    This is a parcel of today's games that I do not want it to be gone...

    Seeing as how you put GTA IV on the cover art, I found the last two choices incredibly hard to make. Do I kill the man who betrayed my unit to get my revenge or spare him out of pity while he begs for death. Do I do a deal with a backstabbing traitor or kill him ahead of time resulting in the death of a loved one either way. Tough choices.

    I still haven't picked a side in Skyrim... Can't decide between Imperials or Stormcloaks... completed all the side quests and DLC that I can... 140hrs on .... still haven't finished the main storyline!
  • homestar99 - June 17, 2014 9:07 p.m.

    Pick the side that didn't try to fucking murder you at the start of the game.

    As I'm currently closing in on the 1,500 hour mark, I have consistently chosen the Stormcloaks over the Imperials for many reasons. The Empire no longer exists as it did in previous Elder Scrolls games. It is now merely a figurehead used to spread the influence of the Thalmor. The fact that they work with the Thalmor to hunt down and slaughter Talos worshippers in a Nazi-like fashion shows just how far the Empire has fallen. Though Ulfric is by no means a perfect leader, his vision of an independent Skyrim would be a much better situation than the current fascist regime. Ultimately it comes down to the principles and the ideals of the player. I could go on for hours about the politics and socioeconomic affairs of Tamriel, but I don't want to bore. :P Hopefully the conflict is resolved in TES: VI, ideally with the reinstatement of a Dragonborn emperor (possibly Dovahkiin or their descendant) and a return to the old Empire. Oh, and what homestar99 said.

    I will help. If your character isn't a Nord, do not pick Stormcloak, as they are a bunch of racists. It would be like a black person joining the KKK. If you are a Nord, the choice is still up in the air, but if you are still hanging on the Nine Divines, just remember that the Imperials have no problem with Talos, it is the Dominion, which is heavily hinted that ESVI you will be taking them down.

    Out of everything on this list, I remember the infamous one hurt me the most. I chose the doctors because when I put myself in Cole's shoes, I knew that's what Trish would have wanted, she would have wanted him to do the right thing no matter how hard it was. I never knew what happened in the evil option, never went back and looked it up. But for the first image of niko and whatever her name was, that was one of the easiest choices I've ever made in a game. I killed the italian guy asap, and got that boring girl out of the story at the same time. I never cared about spending time with her, pfft.

    Mass Effect 3, a geth sympathizer romancing Tali not being able to set the peace because a mistake made in the previous game...It was the most heart-wrenching choice I've ever had to do.. The suicide killed me literally, I swear I could have never felt so wrong because of doing the right thing.. I turned down my console and I think I didn't play ME3 for three weeks. That playthrough is still uncomplete.

    Man, way to leave out details on the ME3 one. The ending(s) aren't just bad/crap/screw you over because you die, there's also the Blue) It may be possible that you'll become indoctrinated when you take control of the Reapers. Green) Everyone is now a forced cyborg, including the husks. Red) All the geth and EDI are dead along with the Reapers and husks. Refusal) Everyone dies and the cycle continues regardless of how high your Galactic Readiness is.

    I feel Marvel Ultimate Alliance comes up, Jean Grey or NIghtCrawler? Either way unhappy ending I believe
  • Kenshiro3 - June 17, 2014 1:08 p.m.

    The Infamous choice was bullshit. The ONLY difference the choice makes is whether you receive good or bad karma. It wasn't a no win situation. It wasn't even a fucking choice. It was a cheap copout bait and switch contrivance designed to undermine & remove all player agency in order kill off a major character by changing the rules if you make the "wrong" choice. That is bad writing/DMing at its worst.
  • g1rldraco7 - June 17, 2014 1:07 p.m.

    In Dragon Age Origins you have a choice of either slaying the Arch Demon at the cost of your life or sleeping with Morrigan to spare your life. That choice took it's toll on me >.<
  • ethan-reed - June 17, 2014 12:31 p.m.

    I think that the end of Army of Two: The 40th Day deserves a mention. Kill your partner to stop a nuke and end the conflict, or save your partner and let the nuke kill millions. No happy ending regardless.
  • FlyWire2 - June 17, 2014 5:12 p.m.

    Actually, it relies in what the other player chooses in that part. If both select to kill their partner, the one that did it first will shoot the other. If only one chooses to kill his partner, he will do.. If both chose to nuke, they'll nod to each other and go slow-mo and shoot the big bad before he can press the button, thus saving the city from the nuke and walking to the sunset as the best bros ever. Probably the most bro-before-hoes ending ever.
  • ethan-reed - June 17, 2014 5:52 p.m.

    Scratch what I said about the nuke. Its been awhile since I've played TFD. I forgot that the nuke is just a hoax. But the enemy mercenaries still continue to massacre people if you choose to kill Jonah. So... Still not a great ending, but better than the Devil's Cartel... -_-

    Fallout: New Vegas is one of the few games that comes to mind wherein your player character is completely screwed irrespective of which choice they make. The thing that makes it stand out is that you have not 2, not 3, but 4 different potential endings to the main storyline. And not a one of them is good for you.
  • FlyWire2 - June 17, 2014 5:15 p.m.

    In what part any of the endings is bad to the courier? In two of them he becomes a war hero, on other he becomes the wasteland's most powerful man second-in-hand and in the fourth he takes New Vegas for himself, establishing either a dictatorship or a democracy based on karma. I'd say all are very good endings.
  • RSQViper - June 17, 2014 12:05 p.m.

    The one that came to mind immediately was the Kaidan or Ashley choice in the first Mass Effect. RIP Kaidan
  • commandoclone87 - June 17, 2014 12:50 p.m.

    I rushed my last playthrough so I ended up being unable to convince Wrex to stand down, so Ashley shot him. I say she kinda got what was coming to her.
