Last game you finished, tell us about it

Finally managed to finish the game, and it was one beautiful ride. I loved all the thought that went into the game, and it just oozes of content. I mean, I managed to get the good ending, but I've on youtube for other endings and I'm surprised at the possibilities.
I actually didn't even hear about or manage to forge that Immortal Blade which you can use to commit suicide.
The ending cinematic was a bit of weird one. Does that mean the
one is going to spend the rest of his life fighting? Was that the Blood War I kept hearing about? It felt a bit weird seeing him randomly propped on the field of battle. I mean I remember reading that he was a geographer or a cartographer before being turned immortal, or something like that, right?
Anyway, I've had a blast with it. The best story in an rpg I've ever played. Not the best story in a game, the Legacy of Kain series still holds that title, but I think I can honestly say it's the second best story after that. Just brilliant what they managed to achieve with mostly just text. Very nicely written. And thoughtful. And just touched on so many notes. I actually had hair stand up on my neck multiple times, especially at major encounters.
Some of my favorite memories:
When getting into the tomb you left for yourself, and reading the message you left yourself about Morte. Don't trust the skull.
Talking to Ravel (I think I missed something here, because some time after defeating her, I went back to Sigil, to Mebeth in Ragpicker's Square, and she talked as if she were an incarnation of Ravel. So I'll have to check back on that.
Talking to the Pillar of Skulls
Meeting your 3 incarnations
And finally merging with your mortality, which I was able to do even though I didn't have the weapon to threaten him with. Which was very cool.
I also noticed, after checking some walkthroughs that I missed some content. I never bumped into Nordom, or the Lady of Pain, or some others.
… because I love the unknown. love the unknown. he said he loves the unknown …
