  • Patius - June 19, 2009 6:21 p.m.

    This article is hysterical.
  • Kleptzilla - June 18, 2009 6:51 p.m.

    The Half-Life 2: Episode 2 ending was one of the only things in gaming that brought me close to tears. I'm not sure if was the actual death, the fact that I'd known him for 3 games or Alyx's reaction, but it had a bigger effect on me than a lot of movies I've seen.
  • jar-head - June 18, 2009 5:38 p.m.

    GR, you need to make another article like this, periodically. cause This type of gamer info is awesome, in short summary, but in retrospect, the readers, us, the community, should play these awesome games too

    So many spoilers.... Nice Article.
  • averagejoe - February 9, 2009 1:43 a.m.

    Killer 7's spoiler was off, but whatever. It's understandable messing that one up, as confusing as the game is. But still- when I got to the actual ending of that game (the first one, not the second or third ones) my mind was blown. I won't spoil it here, though. I'm not EEEVVIILL.
  • Smeggs - February 8, 2009 10:47 p.m.

    I have some. SPOILERS. KH2: Roxas is Sora's Nobody and namine is Kairi's Nobody, oh and the Ansem from the last game? Seeker of Darkness? Yeah, that guy wasn't Ansem, and you have to fight that guy's nobody too. LOZ: Twilight Princess: Midna is the real Twilight Ruler and you have to fight Ganondorf and Ganon at the end...What? You saw that coming? well too bad. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door: The Treasure is really an evil shadow witch queen and you've just been collecting the keys to her tomb the entire game. Portal: YOU DIE at the end. Okami: Your little bug friend is actually a magical little fairy boy wearing a bug looking hat, OH and the final Boss is some kind of embryo. And the dude with the bird hair is really on your side.
  • Smeggs - February 8, 2009 10:38 p.m.

  • smallberry - February 7, 2009 7:18 p.m.

    Aerith dies???? You just ruined the game for me!! ..kidding... Too many comments to read and check if this has been mentioned but I believe that Mona Sax survives if you finish the game on the hardest difficulty.
  • flare149 - February 7, 2009 6:46 p.m.
