Monday, 13 February 2012 02:54 GMT By Brenna Hillier

It’s official. Call of Duty: Black Ops has the best ending of any video game, ever.

The list was generated through polling, with 13,519 “gaming fans” giving their opinions for the record. How could so many people be wrong, amirite?

“Everyone has an opinion on how to end a game whether it’s an epic boss fight, a clever plot twist or a 90-minute movie. This list recognises some of the greatest endings and hopefully will get gamers talking about what are their favourites and why,” Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer’s Edition editor Gaz Deaves said.

I’m sure it will, mwa ha ha. See the full top 50 below.
