Over $40,000 Raised to Change the Mass Effect 3 Ending

Sometimes you just stop and think, wow, how bad can something really be? Yep, you guessed it, Mass Effect 3 is on the internet radar again. However this time gamers are raising money for charity. In an event called Retake Mass Effect on childsplaycharity.org gamers raised over $40,000 in a petition against the ME3 ending.

The Retake Mass Effect – Child’s Play donation drive is a community driven effort to bring positive attention to our petition for an alternate ending to the fantastic Mass Effect series. The Child’s Play charity was chosen as a charity started by gamers to provide video games for the patients at Children’s Hospitals all over the world.

We would like to dispel the perception that we are angry or entitled. We simply wish to express our hope that there could be a different direction for a series we have all grown to love.

Thank you for your interest in our project!

So, at least these efforts are going to a good cause in the end and perhaps this will get some sort of message across.
