...again... people don't seem to get the fact that it isn't specifically about how the game ended. It's the fact that no matter how you played the game IT ENDED EXACTLY THE SAME... This is in stark contrast to what players were promised by the developers. EA/Bioware said they would deliver one thing, but the playerbase got something completely different. This is from someone who hasn't even played a Mass Effect game... Get off your high horses for one minute and think outside your little mirror box.
I'm actually pretty surprised how much nearsighted behaviour there is about this. Hell i haven't even played a single Mass Effect game and the ire of the fans makes complete sense to me... That said, i don't think they should change the ending to the game, despite how asinine their treatment was, it just seems wrong and may also set a dangerous precedent for future titles. ...Nevermind the fact that they're probably going to charge you $10 for the new ending too... I'm sure it's easier for me to say this not being a fan of the series, but people should just take the hint, move on, and refrain from buying EA/Bioware games in the future (hell i did that a LOOOOONG time ago).
@s4dn3s5 You should probably take a look around again since it would seem you haven't done so in a very long time. There have been several games released now with GOOD free to play models... Just off the top of my head: Tribes Ascend and Allods Online. People need to lose the whole "Free to Play automatically means Pay to Win" mentality.
Why would they change their model when people are dumb enough to fork over $15 a month and MORE for their microtransactions?!?! I have no problem with the $15 per month or Free to Play models (as long as Free to Play doesn't translate to Pay to Win), but using both is straight up f%^$&ing greedy.
@Radnen Sixty bucks is not the industry standard (case in point, i bought Deus Ex for $50 on release)... They're sure as hell trying to push the price point by doing it on triple A titles, but it's not what i would call a standard quite yet.
If i didn't think that this would somehow wind up affecting PC players i wouldn't be too concerned about this...... but given what's happening/happened to PC gaming over the last several years (because of consoles) i don't see how any of this can be good news for the PC gaming crowd.
@Banefire76 I'm quite aware of this. I'll be the first to admit that CoD in and of itself is a solid as hell game... It is NOT, however, worth the $60 price tag, nor is the DLC worth whatever exorbitant amount that Activision is trying to get away with (in either the form of Elite or packaged content downloads).
