I WILL NOT APPLAUD YOUR CLEVER BLASPHEMY.
The best part starts at 5:18. Kain basically throws out an advertisement for the next game just before he escapes.

they cut out the part where it actually says "to be continued"
I remember seeing this in a friend's house. We all felt so trolled.
Wait.... what? That was the ending?? Seriously? There isn't, like, a second disc to insert to continue playing?
There was, but it came out 4 years later on a different system and you had to pay for it.
damn thats a good one.
Although; I can't say I was really surprised with HL-2. Although it was an excellent game, it was covering its lack of a developed story with deliberate vagueness from the first level on(a poor attempt at duplicating the ambiguous atmosphere of the first game).
I remember beating LoK and staring dumbfounded at my playstation. I absolutely did not expect to get cheated like that, and it remains a jaw droppingly cheap moment in video game history.
These games were filled with long boring cutscenes

Hey, when you go to the trouble of getting Michael Bell, Simon Templeman and Tony Jay in the same room, you use the Hell out of those fuckers.
I loved the hell out of the first Legacy of Kain, when it was a violent Zelda clone. The Soulreaver followups were alright, but the gameplay was generic as hell, even back then. Soulreaver 2 also ended with a huge unsatisfying cliffhanger and the last in the series, Defiance, sort of ends with a sudden, ambiguous ending. A lot of the plot beats through the games were alright, in fact, intriguing enough to make me keep coming back, but those endings just ALWAYS sucked.
Blood Omen 2 we fans don't talk about.
My reward for enduring fifteen hours of block-pushing puzzles

It's actually one of my favorite game series. The big problem here is that development kind of dragged on and what was supposed to be one big game got split in two.
I still have the whole series and like to play from time to time.
But, yeah, they went kind of ape shit with the block puzzles.

Its basically one step off of cutting to a text screen that reads "Razael died on the way back to his home planet"
in retrospect that may have made more sense.
This isn't the original ending. In the original ending Raz played the giant organ in the cathedral and killed all the other vampires. Then someone realized there wouldn't be much need for a Soul Reaver II so they had to come up with something different.
