Bioware and Cheeseballs

Posted by FilipHolm (669 posts) -

I don't think I've ever seen such a heated argument about a game on the internet as Mass Effect 3, particularly the ending. I havn't finished the game myself yet, so please do not spoil anything for me if you decide to post a comment. However, one thing that I am absolutely certain about is that however the ending plays out I wouldn't want Bioware to change it. Trust me, and don't try to convince me, I don't care if everybody dies, no one dies, or if Shepard wakes up in his bed and it was all a dream, whatever happens I would never want Bioware to change the ending.

I just don't understand why people are actually demanding that they do this. Bioware created this universe, they can do whatever the f**k they want with it. What's the point of having an ending if you're gonna change it as soon as people start complaining about it? What happened to artistic integrity? I do get that people love thses games, I do too, but I don't understand why people react like this. This is a story and a script that the people at Bioware have carefully written, do people really think they do it just for them? That they write all this stuff to please the fans? As a screenwriter myself I know that the main reason for writing is because it makes you feel good, you get to tell YOUR stories to an audience that will hopefully appreciate it. So when suddenly people start raging over the fact that YOUR story wasn't good enough for them, and because of that you have to change it, image how that feels? Of course when I heard the news about them actually planning to re-write the ending I started thinking "Well, maybe they are a bunch of people pleasing, money seeking...dudes". In that case, maybe the screenwriter DID write it only to please fans, or to make a buch of money (obviously). If that were true, I wouldn't be able to enjoy the game as much anymore, lucklily I'm pretty close to the end so I won't have to worry about that. I don't know where I'm going with this, since I'm giving mixed messages and all, but I guess the bottom line is: The rage is sort of respectless and Bioware are weak for giving in...

Summary: Everyone sucks. but I love you all <3
