Quick question: does the main quest end the game?

Recommended Posts

Yep it wrapped up for me at level 11, but then I wasn't doing a completionist play-through. (It is a nice touch that they remind you of what you left unfinished.)

Of course it does. It's the end of the game.

Not all games end with the main quest.

All good games do.

Uhm... Ah... Pokemon. There, you're wrong. Also Morrowind, but I don't want to start another Elder Scrolls debate. ;)

I think it's often better if the game doesn't end with the main quest when the main quest feels urgent enough that at some point you'd want to skip things, from a roleplaying standpoint.  That is, unfortunately, the case in PoE, come Act 3.


I thought FO:NV handled that aspect well, in that it was easy enough to just tell yourself "Caesar hasn't started attacking the dam yet, it's fine."  Bit harder to justify signing up for a month-long caravan DLC trip, of course.
