Interesting that this question was posed so recently. I thought about JohnRayJr's comment on the credits randomly popping up in a game, and him going "Oh, they put the credits here?", and thought that he played some weird games.

Then it happened – Gravity Daze 2 did this. I had tracked the "main story completion" percentage (up to 83% now), and I had completed all side missions before going onto the story missions. Then the story missions started to feel really "this is the end"-like, and stuff started to get serious. But it was still, you know, 80%. Then the end credits rolled and I was like "whu?".

They really just _chose_ to put the end credits there. I guess that if they hadn't had that percentage counter, I wouldn't have been that surprised.

But it's CLEAR that the game continues after that. The game even goes to a "Epilogue", and tons of mysteries are still unanswered.

I mentioned elsewhere, but Final Fantasy XV has an interesting approach to this (as well as an interesting approach to time). You play linearly until Chapter 14 as usual and see the ending and the credits, and then Chapter 15 pops up, which is basially "back in the open world doing random stuff you missed and a new things that have unlocked". I like that they at least acknowledged how people are playing. The events of Ch 9-14 have no impact on the world of Chapter 15 though.

I remember Wild Arms 1 or 2 doing this after the intro part laugh maybe some other games around the same period did it as well.
