The Mass Effect series is one of the best games ever made, and we are not afraid to come out and say that with a serious face. The epic story of Commander Shepard and his team on the mission to save the Galaxy from the Reapers destruction is well known among gamers and non-gamers alike. The latest in the franchise, Mass Effect 3, came out on March 6 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC ahead of great reviews, but there was an underlining problem that blew up so big, it could force the developers (Bioware) to change some sections of the game.
The ending of Mass Effect 3 is considered as a huge disappointment to gamers, and rightfully so. But is it really necessary for gamers to be campaigning for change in the ending? It's a bit childish and irrelevant if you ask us, and if we were BioWare, this would be ignored. One fan took it a step further by filing a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over the game's ending (this is how far these gamers are willing to go).
We have played game. Surprised? Don't be. Just because we report a lot on tech-related topics, doesn't mean we can't have a little fun now and again. Mass Effect 3's ending is good enough. The only problem we had was the similarities with all the final cutscenes, and to us, that is the only aspect of the ending where BioWare fell short with the game. These complaints are just overly ridiculous and needs to end as soon as possible.
Despite all the campaigning, there is a slim chance that BioWare will change the ending of Mass Effect 3. According to a post on BioWare's Facebook account:
We are aware that there are concerns about a recent post from this account regarding the ending of the game. In this post it was stated that at this time we do not have plans to change the ending.
We would like to clarify that we are actively and seriously taking all player feedback into consideration and have ruled nothing out. At this time we are still collecting and considering your feedback and have not made a decision regarding requests to change the ending.
Slim chance, but do not get your hopes up.
