    This game is probably not as well known, but Bard's Tale where your actions can mean the world would be in the hands of a demon or you defeating the demon and bringing peace to the land. But ultimately, it is up to your decisions throughout the game.

    The bad ending of Cave Story where the Doctor uses the island as his floating fortress to take over the earth... Does that count?
  • Cloak_and_Dagger - June 11, 2014 12:10 p.m.

    Metal Gear Solid, pretty much the whole series. Mostly because whatever happens (up until 4, at least), the Patriots win (even if someone else seems to win, too), and they definitely aren't the heroes in the games they win in.

    Yup, this is what I came to say. The MGS series is pretty much a whole bunch of "Surprise! Bad guys win!" scenarios, mostly because they constantly confuse you as to who the bad guys (and good guys for that matter) really are.

    Just gotta stop you there a Red Dead. Ross isn't a bad guy, he's an asshole, but he's not "the bad guy".
  • Saewulf - July 7, 2014 2:53 p.m.

    How is he not a bad guy? Just because he's a lawman doesn't make him exempt from being evil. He was corrupt and killed John Marston even though John wanted to leave that life behind. He even blackmailed John to do his dirty work for him. So how is Ross not a bad guy?

    -> transformers, if you haven't played it how do you know it's ass...... oh right! you must be one of the pure geniuses that magically know all about a game without ever playing it...

    I like the last picture of The Giblet Woods from Fable TLC. The first Fable is like 11 years old now but it always gets a play every year. One year I remember deciding to dispense with the good guy act and see how bad I could be in the game. Basically it started with the theft of some stones from Orchard Farm, somewhere in the middle at the Area I sliced Whispers head off for some extra cash, then, even though I ran out of missions, (I was unable to stop with the bad guy act), I massacred everyone in the game(apart from Bowerstone). Does raising everything to your feet qualify as a bad guy win?

    Half life 2 episode 2 the bad guys win
  • pocketdrummer - May 16, 2014 12:07 a.m.

    I seem to recall shooting myself in Singularity... ........ did nobody else do this? It was the only good ending.
  • kkremer19 - May 6, 2014 2:43 p.m.

    What about BlazBlue Continuum Shift, when Terumi is beaten by Ragna and Terumi got rid of the Tak-ah-mech-ah-hara (probably misspelled) in a near death state. BUT if Terumi won then he would have taken the god slayer Kusanagi to, and I quote, "Kill the shit out of Amaterasu!" Either way he kills a god. Bad.

    CoD ghosts has a baddie ending because at the end of the final mission, you are sat with your bro watching missiles. Look right and rorke kicks you right in the face then takes you away. During the campaign, they shoot your dad too. Sad :(

    While the covenant did destroy reach they lost most of their fleet doing it. And what was left was obliterated but the destruction of installation 04
  • nick-grom - April 24, 2014 6:41 a.m.

    in a way black ops 2 is one because even though you defeat the bad guy (Mendez) he does manage to kill thousands of people and cause billions of dollars worth of damage
  • TheOneRetroGamer - June 8, 2014 2:41 p.m.

    There are two ending where that doesn't happen.
  • CrowStar - April 15, 2014 4:14 a.m.

    inFAMOUS 2. BOTH karma paths lead to bad endings. SPOILER ALERT!!! In Good Karma, the electricity-powered Cole MacGrath sacrifices himself and almost every conduit (a person with a gene that, once activated, gives them superpowers) to defeat The Beast. Sounds okay right? But within seven years, EVERY CITY except one HATES conduits, now called "Bio-Terrorists", and the memory of Cole, because the government made the D.U.P. (Department of Unified Protection) captures, imprisons or turns the remaining handful of Conduits out there, and Delsin Rowe has to clear all that sh*t up in inFAMOUS: Second Son. Definitely bad. However, in Evil Karma, Cole MacGrath sides with The Beast to activate ALL Conduits on Earth, a few thousand people, while slaughtering those without the gene, the other seven billion inhabitants of Earth, because the way that they "activate" Conduits is by BLOWING UP HUGE FREAKING PORTIONS OF THE U.S.!!!!! *cough* which is worse. (There is no version of Second Son to allocate to the Evil Karma ending.)

    Bad ending =/= bad guys win, yes the good ending in I2 is bad, but the bad guy doesn't win.
  • CrowStar - January 11, 2015 4:07 a.m.

    The government, who hate conduits, get most of them wiped off the face of the planet AND all of the "normals" cured in one neat little package. They twist Cole's sacrifice and then find an agency, the Department of Unified Protection, to hunt down and lock up any survivors, with the sole remaining conduit-positive being some teenager in a Native American reserve somewhere in Washington State (at the time he was 17).
  • DovahkiinDrider - April 4, 2014 1:33 p.m.

    What about Overlord 1 and 2, and the dungeon keeper games?
  • Snowskeeper - April 21, 2014 4:25 p.m.

    It's hard to argue that evil wins in Overlord 1 (especially if you went order over chaos), and in Overlord 2 the ending is ambiguous (the empire you're fighting is pretty nasty too).
