One little statement caused so much anguish. Fans upset with Mass Effect 3’s ending went back to BioWare’s pre-launch statements, berating them as deceitful lies. The low point was filing a false advertising complaint with the American Government.
I was going to pass this off as the work of a self-entitled brat. But then Dick Smith came along. A leak suggesting a clearance sale worthy of the reaper apocalypse—games as low as $2! Then, when gamers tried to give Dick their money, little stock remained to satisfy. More false advertising complaints ensued.
Clearly, false advertising deserves some discussion. Are BioWare and Dick Smith guilty?
