Although I don't agree with peoples bitching about this article, what you said made alot of sense. I'm still not sure if I agree with people who demand a retake from Bioware, after all they spent the money/ wrote the story/ etc, wanting one is a different case entirely. This may get Bioware to recoincider some things... maybe.Wharrgarble said:You know what I'm seeing a lot of lately?
"I haven't finished the game yet, but..."
"I'm not a fan of Mass Effect, but..."
"I only ever played five minutes of the original game, but..."
Why does anyone think they have a reason to speak out about something that they haven't even experienced for themselves? I get that everyone has an opinion, but come on... You're kinda writing off your own credibility here. The endings were bad. Not because of the reasons people give to quickly dismiss those who complain, e.g. "You're just mad Shepard dies", "What, you expected unicorns and rainbows?" etc...
The fact is the endings are bad because they're full of plot-holes and are altogether nonsensical. If you got through the game and like them, that's fine. But can we at least appreciate that people are upset enough to try and DO something about it, versus simply pissing into the wind?
I rarely see arguments between developers and fans go anywhere worthwhile. This "Child's Play" donation drive at the very least is bringing a little bit of good into a bad situation.
All I know for sure is I REALLY need to finish this bloody game.
