Sometimes a good ol fashion boycott wont work. Maybe this could be the kick in the teeth for ea we've all been waiting for.

This much fuss over a game just because they were disappointed with the ending? People really need to get a life. rolleyes.gif

I agree. I haven't been a member for very long but have watch the forums for a while. I have never been able to understand why any thread which involves a subject with even the smallest amount of tension, controversy, or opinion ends up like this. Full of posts that contribute nothing, but instead encourage more malicious and rude comments. Why can there never be a actual discussion throughout the thread, not just a few people who share their opinion in a intelligent way, and then a page of people just bashing on them with what to me, seem like very closed minded and ill mannered "arguments".

I don't know, I just get sick of every thread i look at having 10 pages of posts with only a page worth of actual discussion.

Any way, just wanted to say that I agree with you.yessir.gif People never seem to be capable of looking at anything from an-others point of view.

REP+ for you.

One generic ending, with how many sub-plots? You can't state (at least not in terms that would hold up in a legal complaint to the FTC) that if there are, indeed, three discrete endings to the game given how a user behaves, that there is only one ending. Are they all similar? Sure. Are they the same? No. Did Bioware imply otherwise? Perhaps, but they didn't literally state "ending A will be so much different from endings B and C" so on and so forth. In that case, what it comes down to is a discrepancy between user expectations and developer implementation. But it still can't literally be said that there is only one ending, because there isn't.


That is correct. However sometimes it's not about straight up winning a case. It's about showing them how far people could go when these companies "cross the line" so to speak. It's just a more extreme way of saying "Hey, what you did there isn't cool, we don't like it." This ME3 ending is one example, the day 1 on-disc DLC could be another.

Sure they could go the way you suggested and agrue the crap out of it in court, pretty sure they will win too, but all that really does is stir up even more hate against the company about issue in question, as if there isn't enough already.

If they don't want that to happen, they will have to deal with this very carefully not just to win, but also to calm down angry fans during the process, provided that the case does get accepted.

Traditionally there's only so much we can do to boycott games with something we hate, but even with us not buying these games, these franchises aren't going down seeing how countless other people still put up with all the crap these companies shove down their throats. Some even got as big as ever, I'm sure you can name a few rolleyes.gif
