After heaping shame on the game because I wasn’t ready to work for the ending, I realized someone probably already had it on YouTube. Sure enough:
For those unfamiliar with the game: The bit he says at the end about time not flowing like a river is the very opening dialog from the first game. That game started out with him telling his story to that same girl. Then through numerous rewinds and alterations to the timeline he lost her not once, but twice. Now he’s done mucking about with the timeline and he’s ending where he began: Introducing himself and explaining how he knows her, what he’s done, and the part that she played, even if she no longer remembers.
It’s very short, but perfectly ties in with the first game, closing the loop and bringing the tale to a satisfying end. If I’d had to fight the Boss for an hour and a half to see that one minute of footage, I would have felt very cheated. Now I’ve seen the ending and I didn’t have to waste my time to get it, I can enjoy it a bit more.
