Honorable mention does have to go to Uncharted 2 as mentioned earlier but my most recent memorable one was the new Prince of Persia. I just loved the 180 that it pulled after going through the whole game. ---
Thank you, I was starting to believe that nobody else liked the Prince of Persia ending, I thought it was great. Regarding the ending, many have argued that the whole game was pointless as you basically undo everything that you worked hard for, I say that's exactly the point! The Prince thought it better to keep Elika alive than to lock away Ahriman. Such a beautiful ending unfortunately spoiled by crappy epilogue DLC.
I can't really say I have a best ending, but for me my favourite endings are ones that make me feel something, or ones that stick in my mind for a long time, such as:
Silent Hill 2 Shadow of the Colossus Nier
and some games with epic finishing game sequences, such as Braid, Limbo and Tokyo Jungle.

I actually LOVED the ending of Enslaved, though others didn't. Also, LA Noire's ending gave me a "good-type of sadness"(?) best way I can describe it. It took me surprise, but I think deep down it's what I wanted to happen.
