Black Ops Deemed the Best Video Game Ending, Many Have a Different Opinion

So over 13,000 fans voted for their favorite video game ending of all time for next installment of "The Guinness Book of World Records Gamer Edition", and it was a surprise to everyone like Kotaku and Screwattack. And not everyone is happy with it. While I have played Black Ops and liked its ending, in my 20+ years of playing video games, I think there is way better endings than Black Ops. But in defense of these results Guinness released this statement about its listing:

"Conducted for the new Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer's Edition book, the list will cause heated debate among passionate gamers and provide further evidence of the growing sophistication and popularity of video games."

So that's their explanation for this list. A lot of gamers are vocal about it, but then against most gamers have a lot of different opinions on a subject like this. Personally, I think the best ending ever would have to go to Earthbound (aka Mother 2 in Japan) or Final Fantasy VI (FFIII here in the states) both for the SNES. Now, I could probably write an encyclopedia on the reasons why I would choose those games but I'll spare you the rant. Anyway, here is the entire list that Guinness has concluded upon:

50. Resident Evil 4
49. Star Wars: Knights of the old Republic
48. Ratchet & Clank: a Crack in Time
47. Crysis 2
46. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
45. Call of Duty: World at War
44. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
43. Half-Life 2: Episode Tow
42. Super Metroid
41. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
40. New Super Mario Bros. Wii
39. inFamous
38. Fallout 3
37. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
36. Gears of War 2
35. Bioshock

Some people aren't going to take this list as official. The folks at Screwattack decided that they have a better pulse on the gaming community than Guinness and decided to take matters into their own hand by hosting their own rankings of what were the best endings. So if you feel like what that list is entirely wrong (most would tend to agree) then you have a chance to voice your opinion over at Screwattack.
