Alternate Ending For Mass Effect 3 DLC

    1. Petition by

      Project Good End

We can all say we either liked or loved Mass Effect 3, but did anyone like the ending? No? Why is that...oh right, because it sucked. It was a downer ending. It was a non-nonsensical ending. It did not leave the player feeling both accomplished and uplifted. It gave the illusion of choice, where really, you were forced to kill Shepard, destroy the Mass relays, strand the Normandy's crew on random jungle planet in a crash that should have killed Joker, but for some reason left perfectly fine.

What we want:
1. Shepard lives. If there was a love interest, we see them start a family and grow old together.
2. The Mass Relays are Intact, as well as the Citadel.
3. An option to kill the reapers without killing EDI and the Geth.
4. The Normandy. Survives and doesn't Crash. No more people die.
5. The Citadel isn't sentient and is not a child. It is completely incongruous with the plot of the original Mass Effect, and the child-avatar so trite.

We've worked towards the goal of killing them for the past 3 games. We shouldn't have to sacrifice anything more to watch the reapers die. Games are suppose to be uplifting and inspirational. They should touch our hearts and inspire us to be better people. That was what the Mass Effect series was, up until the last 20 minutes. We've earned a good end, it's time for some payoff.

      A stunning trilogy, ruined by the equally stunning incongruity of the last 10 minutes.

      A happy ending is a must. Sorry if that ruins your artistic vision, but the previous two games we had that option if we worked hard enough. 36 hours of my life wasted on this game. you wont find me trusting bioware games anymore.

      I've been a fan of Mass Effect since the first game. Read the books & graphic novels. Even looking forward to the movies. Spent hundreds of hours in this perfectly created universe. Fell in love with the characters. I laughed, cried, & cheered throughout what is most likely one the best if not the best stories I've ever seen. And the last 5 to 10 minutes completely ruin not just Mass Effect 3 but the ENTIRE series. I'm not asking for a "happy" ending so to speak. But at least one that makes sense. I know Bioware could do better. And you know what? Why can't it have a happy ending. Doesn't it deserve it? I think so.

      It's hard for me to express my level of disappointment during the final moments of Mass Effect 3. I was initially shocked, thinking I must have done something wrong. How could my heroic Shepard be forced to pick from three nonsensical evil choices?

      All three choices would destroy the mass relays, likely causing countless deaths and the destruction of any solar systems in their proximity. In the best case scenario, it would cripple the galactic economy, causing the slow painful death of colonies that aren't self-sufficient. Based on what happens to the Normandy, the mass relay explosions must have destroyed thousands of spaceships across entire solar systems. Just look at the blast radius displayed for each mass relay explosion in the galaxy wide view during the ending scenes. How many of those spaceships will be lucky enough to safely crash land on a garden planet like the Normandy? How many families are separated after the relays are gone? Will those families ever reunite with just standard FTL travel? Will Rex and Bakara (Eve) ever see each other again? Will their baby Krogan grow up without a father? What happens to Tuchanka without Rex to guide the Krogan? What happens to all the other wondrous places I visited as Commander Shepard during the Mass Effect series? How will the galaxy recover from the reaper invasion without the mass relays?

      Yet my heroic Shepard couldn't argue with the Catalyst; he couldn't even ask meaningful questions. BioWare turned, my Shepard, a true warrior with a golden heart and a diplomatic genius with the ability to end centuries old wars and solve divisive conflicts spanning thousands years into a weak, simpleminded, and submissive fool. The only way to proceed to the conclusion of the game is to accept one of the irrational choices that this evil being of light provides. There is no chance to use your paragon or renegade prowess to achieve other results.

      Shepard deserves all the options indicated in this petition.
