Fan Takes It Upon Himself To Rewrite Mass Effect 3

Gerry Pugliese is a fan of Mass Effect, but he didn't like the way Mass Effect 3 played out. In response, he put together a 539-page document detailing the changes and additions he would have made to the game. "Vindication is my attempt to vindicate – patch up, rework, and 'fix' – the final chapter of one of the greatest video game stories ever told," Pugliese wrote in an e-mail alerting us of his work.

Pugliese has been working on the document for over year. It's one fan's enormous take on on how they think things should have played out. You'll find new scripts, new scenarios, new endings, new romance opportunities, new powers, new enemies, a new character class, concept art, new DLC, and a whole lot more.

At Game Informer, we were actually quite pleased with Mass Effect's finale, awarding the game a 10 out of 10, and calling it our 2012 game of the year. Obviously, that praise wasn't universal as many were disappointed by Mass Effect 3's ending, and if Pugliese's work is any indication, it still weighs heavy on many gamers' minds.
