I do think it is a good idea, but I can't vote because none of the options are right for me.

If there was a 'Yes, good idea, but I won't actually make use of it myself' option, I'd click it.

That isn't a brag, btw! I just tend to go for arcade-style games which quite liderally HAVE NO END. Like Sensi.

It would make for an interesting resource. Dudes who might have been frustrated by a game for years could use it to see just what they were missing. And the warning indicators are all clearly indicated, so nobody can accidentally stumble in and then complain that their game has been, well, spoilt!

I don't like the idea of showing the game endings. I've always liked working hard through a game, to be rewarded by the fun I had and also the ending.

I wouldn't mind if EAB did start such a section, but I wouldn't use it.

Anyway, if people want to see the end of games without putting in the effort, they can just use cheats, or a trainered version.

I'd say yes, as long as the thread is clearly labelled as being a serious spoiler thread.
A search within the thread for ONE specific screenshot would be interesting too. Maybe a HOL option? ("See game ending screen")
