There are many games which left me stunned in one way or the other, but really satisfying for me was the ending of Bastion, with the montage showing the peaceful lifes of the protagonists after the choices you made in the game's finale, set to this absolute stunner of a soundtrack.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War. Oh the ending, so sad... Must try not to cry, must not cry... Failed. :crying:

Not sure that qualifies as most satisfying ending, but clearly one of the most memorable.

Speedcat returns with November’s special newsletter question. Drum roll please…

Are you more interested in narrative or action, and why?

Looking forward to hear your responses!

Narrative, because at this point in my gaming life, in terms of “action” I’ve experienced it all. But a good narrative can still surprise me.

And there’s so much room to grow in gaming narrative design. Most are not great or even good.

Action, because how old I'm getting, I just cannot remember the entire story for how long it takes to complete it, with all the sidetracks of side missions, and stupid collectibles.

So now I just go for the more mindless action game where I don't need to think about following a story when the game suffers ADHD itself.

I'm more interested in the action. Of course it's really nice when a game's able to offer both, which is why I enjoy Mafia so much. It's just the perfect combination of a very good story and a lot of good action.

Depends on my mood. Sometimes I want to immerse myself in a great story with interesting characters and involving plot, sometimes I just enjoy to turn off my brain and get lost in the thrill of the action.

Narrative, because action without narration seem pointless to me, while narration doesn't need action.

When I am tired or in need of winding down completely, mindless action games. Otherwise, an awesome narrative.

But if you're that old your memory has gone so short term, there's no way you still have good enough reflexes for action games!
