FFD: What’s more important, the journey, or the end of a game?

1 min read

In my case, Journey s far more important than the end

If you’ve been playing Mass Effect 3 lately, you’ve no doubt heard a Normandy-load of people complaining about the game ending. It’s had a ton of feedback, mostly negative, from fans who blitzed their way through the game, complaining about…something.

Now personally, I only started playing Mass Effect 3 last night, and I’ve been doing my best to avoid spoilers and joining in on these discussions, so that I can see the ending for myself and make up my own mind.

I’m not going to rush through the game, I’m going to spend weeks building my team, getting the galaxy ready and exploring every nook and cranny in Milky Way before I tackle that final mission, which brings to my question; What’s more important, the journey, or the ending?

If I’m going to spend dozens of hours interacting, blasting and reporter-punching, then I sure as hell am not going to let a five minute epilogue spoil things for me. There have been plenty of games that have enthralled me throughout the course of the adventure, but left a sour taste in my mind with the ending, but is that a game-breaker?

No, it absolutely is not, for me at least. What about you then, what are your thoughts on this?

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
