Dear BioWare: Do NOT change Mass Effect 3's ending

The controversial conclusion to BioWare's epic space opera may not have satisfied fans, but "fixing" it isn't the solution. (Dev, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Can we forward this to George Lucas before it's too late?

They can change it, but they still messed up big.

I say free DLC to the mass effect community as a way to say we care.

Even if they did change it, the ending you first saw is still in the game and is still the REAL canon ending. That's like saying gay shepard isn't canon when he is.

This indoctrination thing though..it's a 'way out' so to speak. They have to release it for free for a start...But they can say it ended the original way on purpose...because that's the way it was suppose to happen. So people would feel they have been pwned by indoctrination like Shepard was. It would be the balliest move ever and could only be done in gaming. ALthough it really po'd alot of people. If it isn't true, Bioware really really went completely below their own par for gaming, I mean the totally ****ed up beyond what they have normally been doing...allthogh I wouldn't be surprised with this gen's bioware.

From another article:
Shepard could have been indoctrinated on multiple occasions -- through various interactions with Reaper-controlled characters and systems including Sovereign, the Mass Effect 2 ”Human” Reaper, and “The Arrival” artifact.
No one but Shepard interacts with (or even notices) the Vancouver child -- the one who appears in Shepard’s dreams and is revealed at the end of the game to be the Catalyst. The boy is merely an avatar used by the Reapers to manipulate, and ultimately indoctrinate, Shepard.
The final “choice” in the game is nothing more than manipulation by the Reapers in order to indoctrinate Shepard. Harbinger presents the three options in a way that plays-to Shepard’s emotions -- to coerce him into letting the Reapers live.
If Shepard chooses Control, he essentially gives-in to Reaper control -- since they are already, in part, controlling his mind. During his argument with “The Illusive Man,” Shepard made the exact same point -- though Harbinger attempts to convince Shepard that he, unlike The Illusive Man, has the power to control the Reapers -- which is, in the end, just a lie.
If Shepard chooses Synthesis, he opens the door for every organic in the galaxy to be infected with Reaper code -- a process that was detailed earlier in the game by Legion with regard to the Geth indoctrination. Similar to Control, in this case, the Reapers successfully indoctrinate Shepard.
If Shepard chooses Destroy, he successfully resists indoctrination -- though the overall outcome of the game (what happens to friends as well as the Reapers outside of Shepard’s head) is, ultimately, unclear. Unlike the other two scenarios, Shepard is shown waking-up (where as he’s fully-indoctrinated after either the Synthesis or Control options).

Also note that Shepards eye's when choosing control...turn into the illusive mans eye's. Exactly the same, with synthesis his eyes turn the same except they are green.
It's also odd to note that at the very end of the game when all is said and done. Bioware ask to continue the game and wait for DLC to continue you legend with shepard

All the press has moved into defense formation to protect Bioware's "artistic integrity" -laughs-

Bitmob ain't the press. It's just dorks who write short essays about video games with former game press editing it.

Dear "games journalists" - Shut up.
