There’s a Fan Campaign to Change the Ending of Mass Effect 3

Kotaku writes: "there's a particularly amusing poll out there, gathering 20,000 votes, demanding BioWare change the ending to Mass Effect 3. We've had our tips jar blown up with links to this movement. I have no idea where to begin with this." (BioWare, Industry, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Be careful what you wish for. EA might take notice and find a way to make the new ending paid DLC..just like Arrival. This was probably the plan all along.

They could. Either way, this whole debacle of the DLC is a nightmare for their PR department - they got what they asked for.

Broken Steel was a great addition to Fallout 3 (and that continued on the main storyline, after we were led to believe that our character supposedly died).

Bioware said (prior to release) that they have something special planned for the DLC in ME3, so an extension to the game's ending is plausible. Especially to anyone who has seen ME3's hardest-to-get ending.

Not fans..Fankiddies just like the Metacritic lames who complained day one without playing one second of the game.

Who cares? As a real fan I absolutely love this game..just played till 5 in the morning and had to pull myself away

I'm gonna laugh if we get a new "Alternate Ending" DLC pack.

And by laugh, of course I mean cry.

Or they could do worst just like Capcom, and give us Mass Effect 3: The Ultimate Edition with 5 more hours of gameplay and a alternate ending. All for $40 bucks!!! Just like Capcom did with Street Fighter and many of their games. Its like there gamers problem solved!!!

I don't understand. What's wrong with the ending of ME3? I thought it was a bit too much mainstream and lacked surprise but in a way it reminded me of Deus Ex. But that's the way they thought it'd be right. I was satisfied with my choice and it ended alright for me. Where does all this bitching come from? Don't they have other games to play?

Probably because you work so hard in the past 3 games just to build relationships and keep them alive. Then you get that POS ending basically saying no matter what your choices are its still the same.

Although I was really disappointed in the way it ends, or ways it could end, maybe that was part of the point. No matter what choices you made, the ending was just a matter of inevitability and that there are forces in the universe that are just bigger than the great Commander Shepherd that would force him/her down to the very same options in the end.

There are no point, just "bad writing"

I don't care about them changing it and I liked the game overall but the ending was the worst part imo.


I hated it for the reasons stated above and the plot holes. If you didn't see any of them than I'm actually glad for you. And I'm not joking I wish I liked the ending. Oh and the lack of closure to the always planned trilogy. They actually avoided closure by doing a deus ex machina ending and not explaining any of its outcomes except by what a magical god child says...

Totally agree with this article.

I did'nt mind the ending. It shows an opening for a ME4 hopefully. I've spent five days playing this bit by bit and I love it. I am definately going to play through again when I have all of it cleared.

I hated the ending. I'd like to see some dlc to conclude it. That ending was worthless after 3 games.

Can these journalists stop dick riding EA and Bioware like theres no end. Seriously, we inderstand that your reviews were heavily biased and proabably financially accounted for because you did not mention any of the drawbacks. ME3 is not an amazing game. Heck it aint even that good....story has been already see in TTGL (exactly the same) gameplay is just gears of war in space, theres loads of glitches and poor framerate, the new characters are utter shit, and the ending is just inexcusable. Bioware is dead for mr....I though they could renew themselves after DA2 and the new KOTOR but sadly they did not.

Reminds me of the ending to Sopranos and all the outcry over that. People moved on as will this and on to the next game. I can't remember all the crappy endings to games I endured and sat there like Ralphy in Christmas Story with my disappointement like his crummy commercial decoded. That's it a crummy ending after all my work?

The modern "gamer" expects way too much. I am right on board with the picture. *facepalm*
Omnislash  +   849d ago
For being one of the most played video game series this gen, this game deserved a better ending. I would be happy with a generic and they lived happily ever after kind of thing....

Get over it, u got wut u paid for.

I'm really starting to think that mass effect fans are the most spoiled gamers ever. Seriously, quit your b*tching.

Really noticing a lot of hate for ME fans on this crappy discussion boards. The ending sucked. Period. some low paid loser from some back water gaming site doesn't change the facts that the ending is not what should have happened. Game was fun. Go play CoD and quit dissing this franchise.
