New Mass Effect 3 Endings Don’t Bring Closure

Speak Easy writes: Since its release this past March, the ending of the Mass Effect videogame trilogy has sparked fan derision from across the internet, spawning a grassroots movement known as “Retake Mass Effect” to target gamemaker Bioware and even independent platforms such as Amazon as part of an effort to spur a better resolution to the game’s ending. (Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm not getting what everyone means by not having closure. It seems they want an explanation for every minute detail bioware has ever put in the game. Its clear what happens as an overall arc on each ending...use your imagination about what could have happened after.

The problem I have is how Bioware handled the whole thing. They get rid of the first writer from Mass Effect 1, have a few lead writers in 2 and at the end have a guy who has no idea how to end the game end the dang game. This is what we get because of it a vast jumble of vomit that makes no sense at all even to the most die hard of fans.

Mass Effect 1 Soverign says he is above Humans understanding, Mass Effect 2 has Harbinger saying we are beneath him, Mass Effect 3 has some petulant child say that the Reapers were "Made," To destroy oraganic beings so they don't make machines(SyntheticsIE:REAPERS) to destroy organic beings in the first place. Sovereign was right that this is above my understanding because it makes no dang sense.

An even now Bioware holds firm saying that did not make the EC to make fans "Happy," With the ending they made it because they thought fans of the game wanted more content...NOT the people angry about the shit ending but the people who enjoyed the ending but wanted more. That makes no sense either.

Long rant but Bioware ruined the franchise ..Thanks Mac Walters you ruined a trilogy based story in the last 5 minutes..that should be commended.

Don't forget casey hudson's contribution to this shit pie. I won't touch anything either of those two are involved with. It's such a shame drew karpyshyn didn't finish the series, and instead was pulled off to work on SWTOR garbage

People really need to stop crying over the Me3 endings and just give Bioware the credit they deserve for at least attempting to make the ending better. Seriously, whats the point of even trying to please people that will never be satisfied no matter what you do for them. This whole situation right here is why the hardcore or core gamer is being left behind for casual gamers that are easily pleased and actually buy games.

Giving them credit for the "improved" ending only serves to credit them for doing a lazy job with it in the first place and not fixing the real issues. The series needed one person to write the story and tie it together. Just because EA and BioWare thought The Old Republic would be a cash cow, the game lost the only writer worth a damn.

BioWare don't care, that ending combined with "Deception" shows the story doesn't even remotely matter.

Don't also forget it is EA's fault that the core audience was disapointed with the edning. EA have been stating long before ME3 that your choices matter, your choices impact the ending.... and look what you get.

That is EA's fault, not the core gamers.

Another factor is EA dumbing down the game for the casual audience.

Im just going with Shephard got indoctrinated and blew up the weapon before they could fire it, everybody died but the silver lining is more races will have a shot to evolve and advance until it happens again.

Anything other than that ruins the whole series. If the kid wasnt a hallucination then that was the most retarded excuse for an ending since the Matrix (3rd one whatever the hell it was called).
