The Best SNES EndingsS

Compared to video game endings on the NES, the Super Nintendo stepped things up a bit. Thanks to the power of 16-bit, devs were able to do much more; ending cutscenes became longer and, similarly to arcade games, a lot of them showed us the best moments and characters of the game in looped sequences, and also put an end to the story with some spectacular pixel art.

Let's open up the SNES' giant game library and see what games were the most successful in squeezing out the best looking, funniest and most memorable video game endings.
