Call Of Duty: Black Ops Given Honor Of Best Game Ending By Guinness

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Given Honor Of Best Game Ending By Guinness

We all know what the Guinness book of world records is, and now we know that Guinness may not be the fairest in giving away it’s honors. The bearer of world records announced that Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops has been given the crown of best video game ending of all time. Guinness states that the first person war shooter leads in the top 50 list "voted for by 13,519 fans of gaming". 

It’s...very debatable. Both fans and gamers in general agree that Black Ops is not nearly deserving of the title. To make the situation worse, obvious candidates like Final Fantasy VII, Ocarina of Time, Halo, Portal 2, and many more are all on this list somewhere. Yes, opinions are opinions but if more gamers had participated in the vote, I’m sure we could have put a more fitting, and universally agreeable title at the top of this list. Personally I would have liked to see one of the Legend of Zelda games at the top of the list, or perhaps Final Fantasy X. I’d even be ok with Portal 2!

Maybe more of us should get out and vote, eh? What video game endings do you think are deserving of the "best video game ending of all time" honor? Let us know in the comments below!

GameFocus Feature: Warlords of Draenor and the Clint Bajakian Connection

Music can make or break a movie. The same could be said for videogames. For the last 30 some odd years, as videogames have slowly crept their way into the main stream, we have been beholden to some truly memorable musical contributions that enhance the immersive experience that make video games stand out among entertainment mediums. Imagine the classics like Super Mario without the original level 1-1 theme, or the Mega Man franchise without its awesome 8 bit power ballads. It can’t be done. The same holds true for modern games; imagine the first Mass Effect without the 80’s Sci-Fi movie synth, or Uncharted without the adventurous sounding fanfare. Music and sound design are an integral part of any complete video game package, and game expansions are no exception. Thanks to the involvement of Pyramind Studios Composer and Senior Music Manager Clint Bajakian and his team, World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor can count itself up there in the echelon of titles whose OST are worth a second look.

DLC Talk: Dishonored - The Knife of Dunwall

Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall is an impressive little bit of DLC. I should emphasize “little” though, as it is a relatively short experience. Just when the story seems to get going it ends - or, rather, it “kind of” ends.
