Games As I made very clear in my thorough review of Mass Effect 2, I'm a huge BioWare fan. This relationship got very, very cloudy when BioWare released Dragon Age II, a rush job with no story and atrocious gameplay. Mass Effect 3 looked like redemption - until I hit the terrible, terrible ending. The criticism of the ending has been so immense and consistent, BioWare is contemplating changing it. Of course, this story is riddled with spoilers, so be warned.

I was so put off by the reviews that I thought I'm not going to play it.
A game like Mass effect need a Hollywood ending. Not a Cormac McCarthy one.
This is not art nouveau. This is universe saving action RPG. It's like watching Rambo 1,2 and then at 3 Rambo dies. Action fans don't like that.


This is why I don't like action fans. Rambo should have died. A part of me hopes Bioware makes the new ending worse than the original, where AI is replaced with Tim Curry dressed up as a butler who explains that he killed Garfield.

This is why I don't like "art" movies.

Action Movies aren't supposed to be taken seriously. Commando is to be watched with a few mates and some beers.

Tbh if one actually actually thinks about the plot of Rambo IV the only reason why he saved the Christians was pretty much because the Rita from Dexter is very pretty ...

The only reason he saves the prisoners in Rambo II is because the pretty girl dies and he goes mental. Seriously his plans were "run away and have babies with pretty girl I have just met".

Rambo I & III was a sausage fest.

If they aren't supposed to be taken seriously, then it doesn't matter what the end is.

I think what you meant was that action movies are supposed to have predictable endings. Even that, I'm not so sure about, Die hard had a few twists in the series. Most Schwarzenegger's did too.

I think too many people have come to redefine an action movie as " a movie directed by Michael bay". They don't all have to be that bad.

Actually from what I understand, the original movie (and in the story that First Blood was based upon) was supposed to end with Rambo blowing his brains out. It didn't test well with audiences. Stupid Audiences. But then again the latest Rambo movie was pretty awesome.
