The lights are on
A petition to change the endings to Mass Effect 3 has raised $40K in just one day.
The petition, dubbed Retake Mass Effect, is a Child's Play donation drive which hopes to bring positive attention to the situation. "We would like to dispel the perception that we are angry or entitled," the group said. "We simply wish to express our hope that there could be a different direction for a series we have all grown to love." All the money donated goes directly to Child's Play, which provides video games for the patients at Children's Hospitals worldwide.
The petition asks BioWare to make a number of changes to Mass Effect 3's endings, including:
The donation period ends April 11.
BioWare's Casey Hudson recently responded to the criticisms about the game's endings saying, "I didn’t want the game to be forgettable, and even right down to the sort of polarizing reaction that the ends have had with people–debating what the endings mean and what’s going to happen next, and what situation are the characters left in"

Pretty cool that the money goes to Child's Play and I'll admit that I wasn't exactly thrilled with the available endings. but I don't believe they need to be changed. This is Bioware's game. As much as all the fans have grown to love it, Bioware is who spent all the years making it that game we have grown to love. It's their right to decide how it ends, not ours.
the endings weren't that bad I think they just wanted more variation because all three endings were pretty much the same.
Good, the ending was horrible

Quick! Everyone go up to the first post and join in the argument about ME3's ending! Hurry!
I haven't got ME3 yet. I will probably buy the soundtracks (The music is surprisingly good, but it's subtle, difficult to hear.) I will also hope the ending is somehow addressed, because with all the people crying about it, I can't help but feel a sense of foreboding.
Changing the ending would completely change the game, people might very well replay the whole game. This should be what the devs want. I won't judge them if they don't allow a plot change, but I do want some sort of change or addition to the ending, I want to turn my tardiness into an advantage if it comes to buying the game.
