Welcome to another installment of the “Would You Rather?” series. If you’re unfamiliar with what these articles are about, please take a look at our previous entries for more information. Since I have no prior experience with this franchise, I am going to let one of the writers who has played the game, Denoch, answer this question. Here we go.
Question #3: Would You Rather have a new Mass Effect 3 ending or keep the old one?
Denoch’s Answer: I am a HUGE fan of the Mass Effect franchise and all three games were galactically fantastic, with that said, I feel that the ending is “good enough” for maybe a different game that has a linear story but not good enough by Mass Effect and Bioware standards. There were so many choices we made, so many people that we sacrificed or saved, and so many women or men that we might have romanced only to see an ending that doesn’t conclude this trilogy well based on the choices we did or did not make. On top of that, all three choices we can make at the end are essentially the same thing. It’s not that the end is horrible or should be changed by any means, but rather it needs to be EXPANDED based on the choices we made throughout our journey. In other words, give me a 30 minute ending or however long it takes to conclude every major decision I made in the series!
