Warning: This article definitely contains spoilers

Right, Darth Vader is Luke’s father, Bruce Willis is dead in the Sixth Sense, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton are the same person in Fight Club. There, we’ve just ruined three movies for you. We’re fairly sure you won’t care about us ruining these plot twists by the end of this article, though, as we’re about to spill the beans on 80 (some potentially game-ruining) spoilers.

Want to know what lead character gets bumped off before the developers’ credits or discover all of Metal Gear’s biggest surprises?

    First!! Hooray. Thanks for the info guys ;)
  • Gameguy151 - February 6, 2009 6:19 p.m.

    wait, does Nathan die after said shotgun? seeing as you just said everyone else died 'cept him...
  • ssj4raditz - February 6, 2009 6:29 p.m.

    LOL @ the Oregon Trail one.
  • Howesinho - February 6, 2009 6:29 p.m.

    I LOLed at Oregon Trail, a true classic!!
  • NanoElite666 - February 6, 2009 6:59 p.m.

    In Resistance 2, Nathan doesn't take a shotgun to the face at the end. Capelli shoots him with a handgun. Took me a minute to figure out what you meant by the Diablo 2 one; a "Wait, what...?" followed by an "Oh yeah. THAT!" I'm surprised, though, that you didn't pick the whole bit about the Precursors for your Jak 3 spoiler, which I handily ruined for myself via the magic of Wikipedia. :P
  • AfricanWoolf - February 6, 2009 7:01 p.m.

    Far Cry 2 - The Jackel doesn't escape, you both die.
  • skyguy343 - February 6, 2009 8:35 p.m.

  • KingEamon - February 6, 2009 8:56 p.m.

  • SkinnyJr - February 6, 2009 11:21 p.m.
  • xFnKxTaLeNtx - February 6, 2009 11:21 p.m.

    I'm printing this article and posting it on my friends front door so that he HAS to finish all these games.
  • ian edgar - February 6, 2009 11:24 p.m.

    I have trouble believing some of these, but I've played very few of these games so I don't know for sure.
  • bratman_13 - February 7, 2009 12:27 a.m.

    I'm currently half way through Fable 2. When I read the ending I actually screamed out 'NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!' Then my brother yelled at me. Turns out he'd been trying to hide that for like 2 months.
  • dougle - February 7, 2009 1:01 a.m.

    i must find Dragon Quest VIII! as for Grandia II The Pope is the villain. is anyone actually surprised by that?
  • Nitemarish - February 7, 2009 2:34 a.m.
