Mass Effect 3 Ending Outrage Makes BioShock Creator Sad
Speaking at a developer panel during a weekend talk at the Smithsonian in celebrations of the new exhibit, “The Art of Video Games,” Ken Levine expressed his chagrin at the strong, negative reaction Mass Effect fans have expressed over the series’ conclusion.
Ken Levine, founder of Irrational Games, said:
I think if those people got what they wanted and (BioWare) wrote their ending they would be very disappointed in the emotional feeling they got because … they didn’t really create it. I think this whole thing is making me a little bit sad because I don’t think anyone would get what they wanted if that happened.
Well, I commend Levine for expressing an opinion that doesn’t insult, condemn, or mock the fans, and I can certainly understand the point he’s trying to make. That said, let’s just remember that this is the same Ken Levine who admitted that BioShock’s ending was a failure.
