NOTE THAT THERE IS SPOILERS IN THIS POST.
While playing through Mass Effect 3 I heard a lot of controversy over the game having a bad/dissapointing ending, though I didn't want to hear anything about it, rather find out for myself.
First of all, I'm going to say that Mass Effect 3 is an epic game, for both new and veteran fans of the franchise, however, it is obvious that the true veterans, the ones there from the start, care a lot about the story of this franchise, one that Bioware has so cleverly crafted in the first two installations of the game.
And Mass Effect 3 is no different, until the end.
It seems to me, at least, that no matter what choices anyone makes throughout the entire trilogy, it only boils down into three endings, yeah three, and the three endings, are barely different, in fact, a colourblind person wouldn't be able to tell them apart! (You would know what I mean)
In a game which promises players a substantial impact to the story with each choice, each decision, the fact that this boils down to pretty much 1 ending surprises me.
In fact, so many people are astounded that they are willing to raise money for Bioware to give players another ending, and it's for a good cause, with all proceeds going to the charity 'Childs play'.
But, is it really acceptable to demand a new ending? - I think, although angry at bioware, it would weaken their image further, for them to give in, however, an extension to the ending would be a better idea in my mind.
Was investing so much time in the Mass Effect series, really worth this ending?
With day one DLC and now this... Bioware/EA is getting A LOT of bad PR, is it really worth it?
