The Guinness World Records team is usually concerned with measurable (and therefore recordable) achievements, but it's branched out a little today in reporting its poll of 13,519 gamers asking them one very subjective question: which game has the greatest ending? Activision's multimillion-selling Call of Duty: Black Ops scooped the prize, followed by Halo: Reach in second place and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in third. If there's one consistent pattern that emerges, therefore, it's that having a colon in your game's title is a good thing. In fact, number four in the ranking is another colon-enhanced title, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Other notables on the Guinness top 50 list include celebrated narrative-driven titles like Heavy Rain and Mass Effect 2 as well as simpler pleasures like Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario Galaxy. You'll find the full list of honorees at the source link below, but please — don't take it too seriously.
