First Times: Mass Effect Trilogy

It's been awhile since I started another "First Times" and this one, was in the works for quite some time.

In Defense of a Choice-Driven Ending

The beginning and ending of a story are often considered the most important parts. The beginning needs to be gripping and captivating, while the end must wrap up the tale and leave the audience satisfied. Despite their importance, storytellers often have difficulty properly executing an introduction and even more difficulty wrapping up a story. Video games are no exception to this. In fact, due to the nature of choice in games, writers often have more trouble satisfying an audience. Many complain that the choices they make don't matter in the end or that the final choices aren't properly explained/fleshed out. Two games that seem to take more than there fair share of criticism in this regard are Mass Effect 3 and the recently released Life is Strange.
