Video games with bummer endings?

I was having a conversation with a colleague the other day about video games and art and what-have-you, and he made the point that perhaps one reason why video games aren't really considered art is because the endings are almost always the same -- kill alien overlord, save galaxy, get to the last castle, save princess, etc. So we spent about a half an hour trying to think about games with bummer endings and came up with a few -- Shadow of the Colossus, the Prince of Persia reboot, Starflight sort of. Someone else mentioned single player Bubble Bobble as being a bummer, but he may have been joking. Can you think of games with bummer or ambiguous endings? Or is there a good list somewhere?
