I went into mourning after I finished Red Dead Redemption. I'm not even kidding, I was depressed for days.

I consider games to be stories just like books and movies. I don't mind "bad" endings, even in a linear game, any more than I am against sad endings in movies or books.

Generally though, I prefer happier endings, but a well made story with a sad ending is better than poorly done with a happy one.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

For me a lot of games are more about the journey than the destination.  Or with some open-world games like Skyrim I just like being in the game world.  In games like Skyrim, GTA and Red Dead Redemption I can dick around for hours without doing a single mission or anything story related and be quite happy.

Tis one of the reasons I love Minecraft so much: the story is whatever you want it to be.  Also one of the reasons I like playing on my current (modded 1.6.2) Minecraft server, as I've got a very general goal that I can achieve in many different, interesting ways.
