Why the Mass Effect 3 ending is absolutely bullshit!

 

Now hopefully you’ve already read my actual review of Mass Effect 3 (if not click here) and understand that I loved the game. Seriously, if that game were a girl I would have proposed the moment it turned up on my doorstep. Hell, despite it being a game I did almost take all my clothes off… (I managed to regain control after I got my jeans off).

That said, I, unfortunately, fall into the group of people who believe that the ending of ME3 was, without a doubt, awful. Had it not been different the game would have been, pretty much, perfection. On their own though, the ending/s were quite simply horrible. No matter how cliché it is to say so, it’s true.

This article will endeavour to explain just why the endings are so bad. Pretty much everything I say here has been said all around the internet, but I have to say, I came up with several of the arguments on my own before I even started to look around for other people’s opinions.

Retake Mass Effect protest “Victorious”

Many of you will be aware of the massive outcry by fans about the ending of Mass Effect 3. Again, I still haven’t played the game so I won’t be looking into details about the ending (so once again NO spoilers here), but I did try to keep up with what’s been going on without exposing myself to specific details about the game.

A major thing is that fans of the game have actually been joining and supporting a cause called “Retake Mass Effect 3”. The aim of the cause was to raise money simply to show Bioware the extent of the fan’s disappointment with the ending. The aim was to raise $80,000 just to prove to the developers of the game that people were disappointed and willing to take action about the ending. The money however, wouldn’t be used for campaigning and it isn’t really enough to change the whole ending to the game so it is going to be donated to the gaming charity Child’s Play.

Mass Effect 3 – Disappointments abound

I am not in a good mood folks. First of all, last night my hopes of a new exciting console release were crushed and just today when scanning the interwebs for other pieces of gaming news for you guys I came across the following title “Mass Effect 3 Ending Furore” on Eurogamer.

I’ve said this before, but when it comes to games I love (and I mean love, not just like) such as Mass Effect, The Elder Scrolls and a few others. I try to avoid looking at anything actually game related myself in case it spoils something for me. And now I know that an awful lot of fans are apparently very disappointed with the ending for Mass Effect 3.
