Was thinking about my answer: does it count if the game over isn't different from any other game over?

Because the one I listed isn't, but the circumstances mean that your character isn't dead (like any other game over would have), and in fact, would most likely have a better life than he would have if he'd won.

Indeed, everything would have been better, in all time periods.

Final Fantasy XIII-2, where the lead characters die by falling over undramatically was extremely satisfying compared to the game's default ending.

Not really a game over, but I prefer the ending to Dragon Age: Origins where The Warden dies to the other endings. They aren't bad, but I like my endings a bit bittersweet.

Also, having sex with Morinth.

Dead? You thought wrong
Having sex with Morinth is hilarious because it's so obvious she's tricking you into melding with her and yet some players take every she says at face value.

Also her caption for the character page used to say "Come into my van Shepard, I have candy."

Losing to Final Bison as Birdie.

Really... I'd rather Bison just take me by force to the Psycho Drive and have another shot at being in future games than to stupidly walk right in there, get arrested and never be seen again...

When you think of Arakune's bad end, it might make sense a bit. However, if you dig even deeper, you'd start realizing why it's a bad end when used in conjunction with Litchi's bad end: While he mind wiped Litchi, he practically dooms her for a life that will eventually ends very shortly and will turn her into the next him definitely because she lost any drives to cure herself.

Making her forget about him and lead a good life sounds VERY sweet on paper, but it leads to one Fridge Horror. So... yeah, I think he's better off not mindwiping her.
You have to get to the bottom of this, or else everything will be over before you come to terms to it.

Getting shot by TIM at the end of ME 3, or even getting shot earlier by Marauder Shields in the Climax of ME 3. The endings are that bad.

edited 27th Apr '12 9:36:32 PM by Archereon

This is a signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
Visual Novel example: In Swan Song I preferred every single end (including the bad ones) to the Normal End, in which every single character dies. Save one who more than likely kills herself afterwards.
Banjo-Kazooie. Especially knowing that Tooty was written out of the series after this game, we can safely sacrifice her beauty in an effort to reduce the hostilities (and outright murders) in upcoming years and earn Spiral Mountain a Hot Witch to boot. (After all, even Mumbo forgot about his grudge after seeing her like that.)
