* ''VideoGame/DinoCrisis2'' ended with a cliffhanger where Dylan Morton and his daughter Paula were trapped in the BadFuture by the CollapsingLair, but then ''DinoCrisis3'' [[AbortedArc discarded the story arc of the first two games]] in favor of a RecycledInSpace plot. [[FranchiseKiller Due to the third game's poor reception, a resolution is highly unlikely.]]

* 'VideoGame/CorpseParty'' tends to have some aversion due to its PlayerPunch endings in Book of Shadows and Corpse Party Bloodcovered, Blood Drive (the game that is in theory the GrandFinale of the Heavenly Host saga, as all manga adaptations and mainline games lead to this installement due to time loops ) takes the cake for not only causing this trope (in the western fandom AT LEAST ) but also [[BrokenBase causing a huge division in the fans]] due to its almost downer ending and being a HOPE CRUSHER. Because despite all trailers and promotional material might suggest... Nobody was revived in Blood Drive, which is one of the main plots of the game.

To add insult to injury, not only Ayumi was left in a vegetative state and had all the people's memories of her erased (except Yoshiki, that stayed with her)and the survivors didn't even say goodbye to their dead friends is another common complaint. The kicker to top it all off even more? Dead Patient has expies of characters like Seiko, Mayu... It is literally RuinedForever for some.

* ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' pulls more plot threads out of its ass in the second disc than some games pull their entire ''length'', and none of them are properly resolved.

to:

* ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'' pulls more plot threads out of its ass nowhere in the second disc one dungeon than some games pull their entire ''length'', ''length''. Chronopolis is already considered ThatOneLevel due to its status as a MarathonLevel, a large amount of {{Info Dump}}s from [=NPCs=] throughout the level, and none of them are generally difficult random encounters. However, what really seals the dungeon's (and therefore, the game's) fate is the fact that the plot begins to enter full-on MindScrew territory here in trying to properly resolved.tie it to the events of ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger''. Few of these plot points get properly resolved, it kills one of the characters from ''Trigger'' apparently [[ShockingSwerve just for the sake of shock value]], and very little of it gets explained outside of the aforementioned info dumps, if it gets explained at all.

* ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''; The creator, Genndy Tartakovsky, originally intended to create a movie to end the series. However, after the less than stellar performance of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirlsMovie'', he shelved the idea and didn't return to it until it was revived on Creator/AdultSwim. Season 5 was well received, but became divisive because of its CruelTwistEnding where [[spoiler: Ashi [[RetGone disappears due to Aku (her father) being destroyed before she was conceived]], denying Jack a true Happy Ending.]]

Primarily, if Future Jack came back to the past and killed Aku shortly AFTER Past Jack had been flung into the future, how would Future Jack have come back to the past at all? Ashi wouldn't have existed in the future, because Aku was killed, but she was the one who brought Jack back to the past. You end up in a logic loop of "If Ashi exists, Jack erases Ashi's existence, but if Ashi doesn't exist, Jack can't erase Ashi's existence, allowing Ashi to exist.[[/note]]]]

* ''Series/TheXFiles'', of course. Even attempts at TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised did not go so well (the series ends with the protagonists "waiting" for a future cataclysm; the second movie was an unrelated plot that preceded this disaster; the supposed third movie to finally give closure languished in DevelopmentHell; and while there was an UnCancelled tenth season miniseries, it started off [[{{Retcon}} retconning]] most of the built-up series mythology [[spoiler: and ended on a GainaxEnding cliffhanger.]]

* ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends 2'' ended with Mega Man stranded on the moon, and Roll and Tron beginning construction on a rocketship to rescue him. Unfortunately, [[ScrewedByTheNetwork the third game got cancelled and Keiji Inafune left Capcom]], so the story will likely never be concluded.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' got a bit of a negative reputation after word of the ending, which involves [[SadisticChoice either the Lone Wanderer or Sarah Lyons]] [[HeroicSacrifice sacrificing themselves]] to start up Project Purity, got out. The backlash was more or less mitigated by later DLC, though.

The backlash was more or less mitigated by later DLC, though.though due to not altering dialog the game still mocks the player as a coward for sending in a radiation-immune character to complete the task.

* ''VideoGame/FarCry5'' has MultipleEndings but [[DownerEnding none of them]] [[MortonsFork are good]]: Either you walk away and leave [[BigBad Joseph Seed]] with all your BrainwashedAndCrazy resistance buddies in his hands (with further implications that the [[PlayerCharacter Deputy]] is also brainwashed and goes on to kill the friends you ''did'' manage to save, or you resist and [[HopeSpot manage to incapacitate]] Seed, only for a [[NukeEm nuke]] [[DiabolusExMachina to go off behind him,]] proving that all of his apocalyptic rantings were [[TheExtremistWasRight right]] and the entire world is consumed in nuclear fire. By the end, ''[[KillEmAll EVERYONE]]'' is dead save for you and him, and you're both locked in a bunker with each other for who knows how long. As expected, the ending was not very well-received, as the nihilistic what-is-the-point-of-it-all elements pretty much render the player's efforts throughout the game [[AllForNothing all for naught.]]
