While we’ve seen a number of people state that the Mass Effect 3 ending is a satisfying conclusion, it seems that many more gamers are unhappy with the way their beloved franchise ended in the latest release. The surge in complaints made such an impact that the director of the game had to respond, and explain why and how he wanted an ending to remember.
The game director doesn’t seem to have helped matters when he tackled the issues fans have with Mass Effect 3 a few days ago, which had been during an interview with a popular blog while answering a direct question on the game’s ending. You can see the answer to this question here, and also feedback on other questions some gamers have had like the same sex relationships. Do you think Casey Hudson’s answers justified what they tried to achieve with Mass Effect 3?
More recently we found a forum posting that touched on the Mass Effect 3 ending, and this time it came from BioWare’s Chris Priestly. In the post, can be found here, it was explained that they’re listening to fan feedback and this should encourage ME3 fans to speak out about the ending if there’s any upset. The reasons given for listening more than giving answers is thanks to not enough people completing the game, and it’s Priestly’s view that more people need to complete the game first and during this time active discussions can take place to gauge gamer opinion.
Did you love the Mass Effect 3 ending, and how much has this impacted your love for the Mass Effect franchise? Please keep the comments spoiler free as much as possible, although if you’ve not completed the game you might not want to read the comments below in case anyone spoils the ending for you.
The bottom-line – Too many fans are angry for the developers to sit back without giving more detailed answers, and asking gamers to try and “interpret” the ending will only make matters worse while armies of fans discuss why the ending is a disgrace in their opinion, so BioWare listen up while the users comment on what you did wrong.
