Release an alternate ending to Mass Effect 3

The ending of Mass Effect 3 did not fit in with the story line in any shape or form. Throughout Mass Effect 1 and 2, the decisions we made could drastically affect the game play. However, in Mass Effect 3, although there are 3 possible outcomes, all 3 lead to the same conclusion. Commander Shepard is killed, and the Mass Effect Relays are destroyed. Regardless of how you choose to end the story, the outcome is the same overall.

There were many confusions in Mass Effect 3, for example, why was the Normandy flying through the Mass Effect Relay in the first place during the ending? Did the Normandy really have to be ripped to shreds? Why couldn't the Crucible be a weapon, like we thought it would be throughout the entire game? There are many unanswered questions, so I'll stop here before I start to rant.

I think many will agree when I say that all we really wanted to do in Mass Effect 3 was to destroy the reapers and be reunited with our crew. Instead we received a suicide mission with a fate doomed for our destruction.

Bioware, if you're reading this, please give this some thought. We are your fans, we bought you games, many of us purchased the entire trilogy. We loved Mass Effect 1, we loved Mass Effect 2, some of us even loved most of Mass Effect 3. However, the ending was an utter disappointment. For a game of this magnitude, a game of such huge popularity, we assumed that you would have put fourth an amazing effort to conclude such a great series. Obviously, you did not.

Listen to your customers, listen to your fans, please make this right.

      To see a better end to my favorite video game trilogy.

      The ending was so bad that it made me look back upon my favorite video game franchise with regret. If I had to use one word to descibe the ending it would be "unacceptable." I get that not everyone will survive, and I don't necessarily expect Commander Shepard to survive the final mission, but at least provide me with some form kind of satisfaction for playing through the entire interactive trilogy. There is barely any difference between the three best endings, and the secret ending doesn't make up for it, and neither does Shepard still being alive, because it's vaguely referenced by his shoulder twitching. I thought he was dead until my friends told me otherwise. Killing the Reapers didn't satisfy me as a gamer, and honestly, everything that happened as a result of their destruction makes every ending in Mass Effect 3 "a bad ending."

      The ending is a disappointment for everyone who has worked hard to make every wrong a right in this game.

      The Ending leave a cliffhanger for a final series, BioWare don't make ending for the crews, all decisions made don't have effect to the ending
