There’s nothing really more unsatisfying than playing through a game, hurtling through a great ride and then being smacked in the face squarely with the great fish of cr*p Endings.

Such is even more true of a franchise’s climactic moments – these are, after all, experiences we’ve played with through multiple games, speculating endlessly on where its all going and how it’ll all tie up in the end. Throw in actual choices that mould the gameplay, and then you’ve ended up with a big pot full of potential anger.

Unfortunately, this happens. For every game that’s had a marvelous ending, there’s been many a game in the past that’s had a hell of a pathetic finish. But what could have been done to fix these hideous blemishes on a game’s narrative? Was it even saveable? Let us speculate on what we could have done to fix these horrible storyline missteps.

2012 was a typically big year for games, but some of gaming’s highest accomplishments of the year were not seen, nor particularly celebrated.

The soundtracks of games are something to be cherished every year, and 2012 is no exception.

10. Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3

Ubisoft’s gem of the year produced a surprisingly decent soundtrack, consisting of the patternless melody and haunting vocals of a woman with a language many of us have never heard before. It intoxicates and invites us into the unknown world of FC3, introducing us to the maniacs that inhabit it. Though this soundtrack may slip past the minds of those who play it, Far Cry 3 gives us the depth and terror of its story through its music. It tells us that more is going to happen in this journey than a few friends on vacation. Along with the story, it has many changes in tempo and structure – changing direction when we think we’re here to stay.

The game introduced many newcomers to the series, earning acclaim from those who played it. And even though it may go unnoticed, the soundtrack was pretty fine too. If you pardon the pun once more, its pretty insane.
