The R-EA-per Threat by LordSchmee The R-EA-per Threat by LordSchmee
I have my theories that EA either forced Bioware to push the game out quicker, or forced them to make this ending in order to get some DLC down. Either way I feel that Bioware respects their fans enough that they wouldn\'t have done this of their own accord. Maybe I\'m wrong but that\'s my feeling on the matter.

The ending is in fact an attempt at being deep and edgy and not really marketable, EA probably forced the 'Buy More DLC' message at the end but that's the end of it. The rest of it falls squarely on Bioware's shoulders, and they let one guy write the ending so what the fuck did they expect? Blaming the for-profit publicher for the actions of a company that has a writing team that has proven to have their heads shoved up their collective arse is just going to make negotiating all the more difficult.

I'm not very accustomed to Bioware, the only games I've played (and watched interviews of) are Mass Effect. So my judgements come from those interviews, the games themselves, and my own knowledge about how businesses work. However.
Many of the people commenting on this picture have decided that EA has screwed up a lot of Bioware games. I can't speak for that 'cause I wouldn't know, but I doubt they're lying about it all so that's one reason.

But no. Soooo much about the ending makes NO sense. It's not just "wow, that was a deep ending, we're left in the dark and now we have to speculate."

No, that's not the ending. The ending is BS because it has so many flaws and contradictions (Normandy flying away, teammates on the Normandy who were with me when Harbinger attacked, etc, etc) that I doubt Hudson would have made such a big mistake. He's an excellent writer, he wrote the entire series perfectly - how could he have written such a botched ending when left to his own devices? Clearly someone intervened.

Except Hudson didn't write the ending, they let one guy, the lead writer no less, Mac Walters do the entire final sequence.

One guy.

I'm dead serious.

Well, even so, I still don't think Bioware would leave it like that.
If you check out AngryJoe's new video on www.thatguywiththeglasses.com you'll see him cover some evidence on Bioware's intentions of the ending. He's a great guy and he's done a lot of coverage on this. :D

The ending is horrible, but the game is top notch. Play it 'til the end, then once you're done, join the fight! Together we can Retake Mass Effect 3. :D

I'll probably go till the end with it. But what worries me a lot is that I love the Dragon Age series as much as Mass Effect. What if they make DA3 and mess with it too?

If you hold the line and fix Mass Effect 3, then maybe they'll think twice before doing it ever again. :D

You know that part in the Matrix with the Architech? Imagine that happening, but in LotR, when Frodo enters Mordor. That's about how disjointed it is.
