Which Ending Do You Like Better? (Spoilers, obviously)

posted by BlankCanvasDJ on - last edited - Viewed by 679 users

So naturally, I had to play through the finale segment twice to see the two different endings (there are only two, right?) and I wanted to see which one everyone preferred.

Personally, I'm torn. I liked Nima so, of course, I do like the ending where she survives and gets to live happily ever after. On the other hand, I felt like the ending in which she died provided much better closure for Gerry and Jess. It also feels like it has a little more breathing room, instead of just bolting off into the sunset like the Nima Lives ending.

Which do you guys like better?

  • I figured that when they said "boat" in the movie, they were referring to the freighter/transport vessel that Nedry tried to reach at the beginning of the game. "That's up to your guy on the boat" etc..., not some mysterious speedboat docked on the other side of the island.

    In fact the game makes no mention of the speedboat until they show up at the docks and voila, there it is. They could've at least inserted a bit of dialogue for Nima or Miles at the beginning that alluded to it.

  • I remember them mentioning the boat though. Somebody says there's a second boat coming. And I think that speedboat is the second boat.

  • There was always a 2nd boat mentioned in films and the game. Nedry was to take the cannister to his contact (aka that annoying guy at start of game) on the east dock. Then BioSyn was sending a boat to the North Dock for him to get off the island and recieve his payment.

    Throughout the game this is why Nima wanted to travel North and they kept mentioning reaching the boat (which couldn't be the freighter as that was evacuated, as shown by the need for rescue teams and the fact they said they were leaving in 5 minutes before we left the dock and as it was at the east dock, why would be trying to head north?).

    Therefore the bag of money is quite obviously the second half of Nedry's payment, hence the same style of bag as he got the first half in during the film and the biosyn contact bringing the boat probably got eaten by the rex, hence him being in the area when they all arrive.

  • Can we have an official answer on this subject? Cause however I look at this it doesn't make entirely sense.

    If the speedboat is Nedry's boat then how does Miles and Nima know where the boat is?

    But if the boat was send by Dodgson to collect the can then why is implied that Billy killed the guy on the boat? Why does he even needs the can afterward?

  • i didn't know you can choose endings lol, i guess deciding to get all the gold medals, really isn't worth it unless at the very end of the game

  • I like the ending with Nima surviving. It's better than her coming, spending forever at that island, and then die.

    Nima was also hired by BioSyn, so she knew where the boat would be. And I don't think Billy knew there was money on the boat and if he killed the guy on the boat it was because he didn't want any survivors knowing he was alive.

    I'm surprised this whole issue has caused so much confusion, I thought it was pretty clear :S (and not just this, I mean the whole issue of the money on the boat.)

  • can you have the ending with billy surviving?

  • I just figured the guy on the boat had been eaten by a dinosaur.

  • Wait, there's different endings? How many?
