Default Adventure Games with Multiple Endings

Hey everyone,

I've always been a fan of adventure games that have multiple endings as it makes me think I have some sway over the actual events of the game. As such, I would to know of any and all adventure games you lads can think of that have this feature. I'm in the market and am wondering all what's out there. Let's hear it.

The one that comes to mind right away is The Pandora Directive with its seven endings. And it's not a case of saving the game near the end and being able to do something a little different and view them all either. Depending on how you control Tex throughout the game (i.e. nice guy or jerk) will decide which ending you get.

Shadow of Memories has five different endings. IIRC three were depending on decisions rather at the end and two could be chosen (not that you knew it...) earlier on.

Really cool game, that one.

Ripper had multiple endings, in that you could replay it and come up with a different killer at the end. And that King's Quest game, the one featuring Alexander, is a great example. But when I think of multiple endings, I think of RPG's, like Temple of Elemental Evil, which also had multiple beginnings, depending upon party alignment.

Yep, that's your best bet. You can probably get a copy on ebay.
Check this thread Here in this forum.

Also, Journey to the Center of the Earth has a dual ending.

The King's Quest 6 seperate endings are really nice -- you can beat the game without going to some of the important areas. But the ending you get is nowhere near as good or fulfilling as the complete ending.

The Secret of Monkey Island had a slight variationof endings. Depending on whether or not you made a goof with Herman's artistic sculpture.

I'm pretty sure that the Star Trek adventures games, TNG: A Final Unity & Judgement Rites both had muliple endings, depending on how well you did, but I can't entirely recall.

All the Quest for Glory games kinda had a multiple ending shtick, depending insofar as it praised you for each sidequest you managed to accomplish.

Gabriel knight 1 had two diffrent endings. And I'm pretty sure The Dig had more than one ending.

Tender Loving Care has a few.

I really liked how it was done in GK1. More than just "Oops, you're dead."

It has different endings. And anyone who hasn't tried it yet, should.

Crap. I saw a copy of the Last Express for $5 the other day, brand new in the original box and everything. But I was in a hurry so I didn't buy it.

Post Mortem has 3 or 4 endings. It's the newest game with multiple endings I can think of.
