This is stupid, the ending was just fine.
Fucking whiny bitches.
Nice. Glad to hear you liked the ending.
But some people paid a little more attention to the story and it's themes.
Not just me, I know tons of people who didn't mind it. People just have to find something to bitch and whine about, there can never be just one thing that's good. Bioware shouldn't have to change shit, I hope they charge $10 for it so then people can bitch about that. I mean, hey! They're the ones who fucking wanted it!
Add on shit, change shit, they still shouldn't have to. It's their story dammit, they can end it how they want!
Oh well, don't care. I beat ME3 3 times now so I'm sure I won't be playing it again until a bunch of DLC is released.
"Tons of people"? M'kay. I can think of a few hundred
. But not "tons". Sure it's their story. It's also their promises
which were tossed out the window. Promises on which a large number of purchases and pre-orders were made. Then you have the issue of the ending statement that "synthetics and organics cannot coexist". I don't know about you, but I had just gotten through proving this to be incorrect between the quarians and the geth.
Then you mention that you hope Bioware/EA charges for this DLC. Well that's not going to bother most people. We're asking them to go back to the drawing board, to work more hours, and polls have shown
that many people are just fine with paying for this extra content.
But to say that they shouldn't have to change anything is to give all media producers the right to phone-in vital portions of their stories without consequence. "Oh that's alright, everything else was great, so we'll just overlook the ending that makes no sense
It seems like people won't be content with any ending of Mass Effect 3 unless the Crucible shoots a magical rainbow laser that sprouts flowers and sunshine everywhere. The fans are retarded. Yeah, it's a dark ending, but the whole series has been about grim outlooks but had its humorous moments and stuff to keep it from being Warhammer 40k GRIM DARK DARK GRIM GRIM GRIM DARK.
For the record I thought the ending was fantastic.
Again, lets go to the polls
. Oh darn, it looks like most people aren't asking for rainbows and kittens. They simply want an ending that actually reflects the choices they made in their 100+ hours of gameplay. Perhaps one that doesn't contradict every underlying theme of the entire series.
Most people are fine with most or possibly even all of the endings having a grim tone to them. But when we're told that the endings won't just be "A, B, or C" (the words of Casey Hudson) and all we get is endings Red, Blue, or Green why shouldn't people be irate?
Indoctrination Theory is a rather well thought out explanation for the current endgame offerings, but if it was the actual intended concept for the ending, it would have been officially supported by now.
But I really don't see how people can be pleased with the ending taken at face value.
That's simply my opinion. You certainly don't need to agree with it. And when the additional DLC is released you're certainly free to ignore it.
But these are the issues that have rallied more than fifty thousand people to complain.
Not that Shepard dies.
Not that we don't respect artistic integrity.
And not that we're somehow "entitled".
