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 myself dont think the ME brand is damaged. If anything, it proved that it can contain a story that doesnt have rainbows and ponies everywhere. Most other games you can do whatever you like and you still get the end where you are the supreme galaxy commander. Sheppard was a hero... died (maybe) like a hero.

I don't mind a tragic ending. I think most people don't. Red Dead Redemption had one and it was very well received.

The reason most people hate the ME3 ending is not because Shepard died, but because it was poorly written and terribly executed.
