Please Change The Endings Of These Video Games

Kotaku writes: Rhett Butler didn't give a damn. Bill Murray whispered a secret to Scarlett Johannson. Frodo destroyed the ring. Jack Nicholson's cabin fever convinced him that chopping up his family with an axe was probably a good idea. And what's in the booxxxxx?

Conversely, when it comes to some of my favorite video games, their endings are rarely at the forefront of my mind when thinking back on the experience. (Alan Wake, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Fable 2, Mario Kart, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Wii, Xbox 360)

A lady journalist writes passive-aggressive article in defense of Mass Effect 3's ending?

No way /s

It's sad, but the writer seems to be speaking another language to me. I totally recall what happened at the end of Bioshock, though I admit Frank was my favorite character... I also remember the ending of Bulletstorm too, but thats not really important.

Having never played 1/3 and only some of 2 (which made me bored), I don't quite feel the same "pain" of the fans. However I don't recall anyone being mad Sheppard died, but that the ending made very little sense and many things went unexplained. There are also a group that are more so mad about false advertising and there being no ending that's truly different.

Now while I dont agree with the complainers, I can see their point of view. I think they're just looking for a more "accurate" ending that suits the characters. When you figure most people played 150+ hours throughout the series, I don't think thats too insane of a demand.

In the end though, gamers complain and lame sites make pointless articles trying to get hits. Sun rise, Sun set... When will we get the next pointless struggle?
