 The Most Controversial Game Endings Of All Time


More than the spaceships, wacky aliens, and extraterrestrial sex scenes, the original Mass Effect trilogy is all about choice. Like BioWare’s previous role-playing games, the decisions that players make in Mass Effect directly influence the game’s plot, including its ending. Unlike other BioWare games, those choices extend beyond a single game. If you’ve played the original Mass Effect, your decisions carry into Mass Effect 2. By the time you fire up Mass Effect 3, you’ve got two whole games-worth of history informing the story. The series’ climax is directly informed by everything that came before it, leading to a multitude of unique, personalized endings.



At least, that’s what BioWare promised, but it’s not what they delivered. During Mass Effect 3’s final section, players choose from one of three options, which provided three different endings–regardless of anything else you’d done in the previous games. While BioWare representatives promised that Mass Effect 3 would contain a “real proper conclusion,” none of the outcomes sat well with fans. 



Naturally, fans rebelled. A poll on BioWare’s website, asking them to create a new, more complete ending, amassed over 16,000 votes. Meanwhile, a separate Change.org petition garnered over 13,000 votes. A related charity drive raised over $80,000. One player took his complaints to the Federal Trade Commission, while the Better Business Bureau accused BioWare of false advertising. BioWare listened. Four months after Mass Effect 3‘s launch, BioWare released Mass Effect 3’s free Extended Edition update, which added cutscenes explaining what happened to various characters, and showing how the players’ choices throughout the franchise ended up affecting the galaxy.
