Comment posted BioWare’s Decision: The Relationship Between Developers and Their Audience by s.stone.
Sorry Tyler but i have to agree with bill on this one. bioware went on record telling gamers that their choices in the game would affect the outcome of the game which it didn’t and if you look at the ending you would see that they are the same with minor differences to each one. it doesn’t offer any closure to gamers who have been playing this game since the very first one.
If bioware couldn’t keep their promise they made to gamers,then they shouldn’t have made it or been forthcoming with the outcome of the ending.then gamers wouldn’t have been up in arms or wouldn’t have wasted their money on the game. but I’m sure bioware knew that which is a reason they have misled gamers and now this is the outcome from gamers.
I wanted to also touch on a part of your comment to bill.”Several game journalist who have played it would disagree and see the endings as giving plenty of closure and so on” ahhh…..NO. journalist get AD dollar,free games,exclusive interviews and previews. so why wouldn’t their opinion be bias to the developers and publishers. i mean we seen what happened to the last guy who reviewed a game with a low score (guy from gamespot)and the site was given preview and interviews. he was fired. so please tell me another journalist that would S*%T the money bed?
also not everyone is complaining about the ending. a lot are complaining about the day one DLC that’s already on the disk and bioware is trying to milk out extra money to unlock this content on disc. but again what journalist or gaming site has mention this also? none.
this whole “enough with the complaining” articles is only telling dev’s that it’s ok to put out a garbage product and it’s ok cause no one should ever have an opinion on it. even though the dev’s ask for gamers input into the game and again i feel bioware gave their fanbase a DIRTY SANCHEZ not only with the ending but also with the DLC that’s already on the disk that they are trying to con me out of.
