Next, I want to discuss Bioware’s “Artistic Integrity”. People are outraged that Bioware would even consider changing the ending to Mass Effect 3. MovieBob stated himself: “Congratulations, “Mass Effect” crybabies. You’ve officially set the entire medium back a DECADE as an art form
Also, Bioware? SHAME on you for caving. You’ve chosen to make coloring books instead of The Mona Lisa.”
I think this is a little harsh, as I’ve previously stated, changing an ending has happened before, and did it do any damage? This is just a big overreaction. I would bet money that changing this ending WON’T harm gaming or its state as art. Another note, however, is that if Bioware had “Artistic Integrity” and if they really loved “their” ending, why didn’t they defend it? Why did they just sit back and take the criticisms without even defending their “art”.
So that is all I have to say on this matter, I would gladly defend a new ending to death, but it seems other aren’t as keen as me. I have seen a great video about this by Jimquistion. I highly recommend checking it out, as it goes over points I may have missed. The link will be at the bottom of this article. Thank you for reading my dull opinion.
