The best game endings for Nintendo Switch
It’s hard to say goodbye, but sometimes it’s for the best. Some of the most memorable and touching stories we’ve seen in games over the years have ended tragically or ended in bittersweet endings – here’s why Shakespeare’s most beloved plays Hamlet And Romeo and Juliet, after all! We’re just suckers for an unhappy ending.
But not all of the games on this list of the best endings are tragic. Some of them are touching, some fit the characters we know and love, and some are just downright beautiful. We’ve narrowed down the list to just Switch games (including Nintendo Switch online games) because games have a lot of brilliant endings, but even so, we found it hard to narrow it down, so be sure to head over to the comments to suggest your own. .
Whether sad, happy, or somewhere in between, every game on this list has one thing in common: they make you say goodbye. special.
(And if it’s not obvious: ATTENTION, SPOILER!)

If someone offered you a million dollars to predict the ending of Inside after 15 minutes of play, you wouldn’t get a dime. We doubt that even after a few hours, anyone will be able to guess how the story ended for the little snooty protagonist. And we cannot decide whether the ending is good or bad, in which the pathetic Cronenberg experiment ends up on a deserted shore. But does it have to be so black and white? It certainly makes you think, and this is the main thing.

At first glance, NieR: Automata is a game that is loved for its vibrant and powerful combat, serene yet desolate world, and both chaotic and classic soundtrack. However, the percentage of players who don’t jump back after their first credit toss is really missing out on something special.
The struggle that 2B and her comrades endure against all odds is inspiring but heartbreaking, and once you reach the true end, we cannot guarantee that you will be the same person that you first picked up this controller.

The end of Link’s Awakening is one of those bittersweet endings in which Marin, Koholint, and the world Link has come to know dissolve like dreams in the light of dawn.
It could have been a happy place for him, but instead he got trapped in this eternal need to solve people’s problems and everything in the game – from the surreal inclusion of Super Mario characters to a giant egg on top of the world. — makes it to the finale, as perhaps the only time we agree with the “it was all a dream” disclosure.

When you were a child, you must have had a feeling of invincibility. The moment when you wanted to run away from home, when you felt like you could eat whatever you wanted or you could wander through the woods and nothing could harm you.
EarthBound somehow magically allows you to reconnect with those feelings, but then suddenly awakens you at the very end. It’s not horror, but if you had nightmares after the final fight (or when you were stuck in it for days on end), we absolutely can’t blame you.
