In fairness, the ending can actually make prefect sense, but only if you choose the correct one i.e. the ending no one else seems to have done.

 

that ending gives a proper, thematic end for all the middle-class white kids, and works from a dramatic point of view.

 

I remember discussing the ending with some other people at the time it was first out (it was a very popular game among the young engineers  I worked with at the time) and being absolutely dumbfounded that anyone would choose the other ending than the one I did... then realising I was literally the only one who went that way with the choice.

 

I don’t think it was a coincidence that I was also the only one who thought the ending was good...

 

 

I actually watched both endings, and I disliked both of them.  But it was before that, during the final boss fight that I really got annoyed with the game.  I also disliked the end of the first game, blood dragon (which the game itself was pretty awesome) and 4, but 3 was by far the worst, and it started way before 'the choice'.

 

I honestly feel like the ending to these games is an afterthought, like some designer and his director at Ubi see each other at the water cooler and the conversation goes something like:

"Loving the story, how's the ending coming along?"

"Um, what ending, we need an ending?"

"Yeah, like yesterday.... shit, just give them some ME3-esque choice BS, that'll work"

"Sure thing, but first I'm gonna finish my coffee and bagel"

This game was excellent. It really got everyone's attention to play the game very well. Far Cry 4 was close to Far Cry 3 but not even a landslide. Far Cry 5 wasn't that great but still a great game.

See, I'm on the complete opposite. FC3 was good, but Ubisoft pretty much perfected this sandbox formula over the years and improved on it in FC4 and FC5. I think the fifth one is the best one so far when it comes to outposts liberation, buddy system etc. Even the story is bearable.
