Top 10 Games with Multiple Endings


Sometimes, it’s best to finish something your own way. Welcome to Watchmojo.com and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top 10 games with multiple endings.

For this list were ranking the games that based a variation of how good they were, combined with the number of different endings you could get when you beat the game, and of course the overall quality of the endings themselves. Also this should be a no brainer, but since we’re talking about the endings: Spoiler Alert.

#10: “Deus Ex” (2000)


We’re starting things off with what is considered one of the greatest PC games of all time. Though it only had 3 endings they were quite diverse from each other, a trend that would follow in Human Revolution with a rather stupid pick your ending machine. But in the original game your choices are: Use the technology in Area 51 to allow the Illuminati to rule with an invisible hand, Merge with an AI and rule as a dictator, or destroy the world’s communication networks so that no one can control the world. There’s no right answer so choose wisely.

#9: “Resident Evil” (Gamecube Remake) (2002)


Now we move to what is perhaps the best remake of all time, this game has 12 endings, though they mostly come down to who survived overall. There are 2 different playable characters each with 6 endings, and they hinge on weather or not your two allies survived, and if the mansion blew up. Granted, none of that changes the confrontation scene with Wesker.

#8: “Silent Hill 2” (2002)


The psychosocial survival horror masterpiece, this game comes with a total of 5 endings, with a 6th added in the Xbox version. These endings include variations on what happens to the main character, determining whether he starts the whole thing over again, or if not, who he ends up with. There are also the more absurd conclusions, one that involves a UFO invasion in a silent film, and of course the infamous ending where you find out it was all done by a dog.

#7: Blade Runner (1997)


The often forgotten point and click adventure gem by the now defunct Westwood Studios, this game, based off the 80’s sci-fi film of the same name, focuses on Ray McCoy, a rookie Blade Runner. His 13 endings are determined by whether or not McCoy hunts down the replicants, whether he can convince the replicants he’s one of them, or simply just blow town with one of them in tow.

#6: Persona 4 Golden (2012)


One of the Playstation Vita’s first hit games was an enhanced port of the PS2 game Persona 4. This Anime inspired plot is impossible to compress into a short blurb, but what you should know is that this game has 10 endings that don’t all appear right at the end. Instead if you screw up too early you may get one of the bad endings, but if play your cards right you might make it through to the conclusion at the actual end of the game.

#5: “Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward” (2012)


This Visual Novel, an adventure game hybrid on the 3DS and Vita draws inspiration from Saw. The concept goes that a twisted animated bunny tells a bunch of captured people that they have to complete a series of puzzles, and at the end of each puzzle they have to choose to either ally with or betray another team in order to earn or steal points on their bracelet.(If you get zero points your dead as a doornail) The game has 24 endings is decided based on who you helped and who you killed.

#4: “Heavy Rain” (2010)


In this interactive drama by David Cage, the climax involves converging on a warehouse to confront the Origami Killer. Depending on the players choices throughout the game, the number of characters that appear at end will alter the outcome, and decide if 2 of the main characters survived or die. Granted the fact that this game is a murder mystery does weaken the replay value since the big reveal of the killer’s identity is always the same.

#3: “Fallout 3” (2008)


Fallout no stranger with multiple endings, with the 2nd game having different possible outcomes too, but here were talking about the 3rd. Todd Howard stated that the game has over 200 endings … though that number is greatly exaggerated with the real count being around 30, as most of them are variations on the number of slides you get at the end of the game. Then Broken Steel came out and all that wasn’t an ending at all, but whatever.

#2: Chrono Trigger (1995)


Considered to be one of the greatest RPG’s of all time, Chrono Trigger’s Time Travelling epic spawns multiple time periods, each with a different decision on how to take on the final boss. All that, in turn, leads into one of 18 different endings, most of which are vastly different from one another. This is a prime example of how to do multiple ending right, so if you’re even the slightest bit interested in RPG’s. You need to play this game if you haven’t already.

Before we get to the top spot, lets see what else could be finished more than once

#1: Star Ocean: The Second Story (1998)


We’ve talked about how these games can have anywhere between 3 to 30 endings and still be great. But this game? This game has 86 endings. Eighty-Six Endings? And its PSP enhanced port titled: Second Evolution bumps up that number to ONE HUNDRED ENDINGS. The endings all come down to which justice to the staggering amount of variables.
