On the topic of best ending I thought, what are some of the best real-time Cinematics ever. A) Must be Real-time B) Relativity is virtue. Just because a game is current generation doesn't mean that normal mapping make a cinematic the best. Camera usage and pacing go a long way. I would say on top is Mass Effect. I know it's a new game, but mannerisms and timing are everything in the way this game's story is told, and most importantly of all, the cinematics are geared towards your decisions. But outside of the current gen where Uncharted definitely falls too (Are those realtime? or are they prerendered using the game's engine?) I have to go with Jak and Daxter (or the Jak series in general), not only is the animation silky smooth and the expression and pacing right up there with a good Disney movie, but the writing, especially in the second and third game are excellent. I have a DVD Sony sent me with the three games told in a movie format with Dexter narrating. And it's very enjoyable to watch. And my honorable mention goes to Final Fantasy Tactics.. (not the PSP cinematics). The usage of sprites to Hug and Kneel, and slaps and back-stabs and express themselves without relying on hi-end CG were awesome. edit: Oh, and I can't forget about two others.... Comix Zone and Flashback on Genesis.
