My point is these game developers who love to make grandiose claims about how their game has dozens of endings with all kinds of variations, when that is a complete and utter lie.


Guess it depends on what you consider a 'different' ending. I didn't count it as a full different ending in DA:O if Leliana was hardened and in leathers or still in robes, but I bet Bioware did.

How is it hard to believe such a thing? It may just be he's counting every combination of "slideshows" like Dragon Age: Origins.

Casey Hudson has nothing to do with this game though, so there's hope.


Lol I remember his excuse for not having The Illusive Man as the last boss. "It was too video gamey!"

I don't think Bioware is going to live that one down anytime soon.....

^and that is what is utterly misleading and ridiculous.

To most people, the ending is the main story thread, so when you hear "40 different endings" you should think "40 different ways the story will play out in the end". Not "we have 3 main endings (though all are quite similar), but each one of those has 40 subtle differences, like someones haircut!" which is what devs mean, and is stupid.

It does not matter where we go. It is not the destination that matters...it is the journey.

Don't quote me on this, but I read somewhere(twitter maybe?) that there is 2-3 completely different endings. Then there are a huge amount of tweaks that can effect the ending in a small way.

So, 40 endings, while true, doesn't mean 40 different endings. Just the possibility of small "tweaks" to each ending.

This. When making these claims it seems the devs always include a different short cut scene or arrangement of the ending cut scenes to count as an ending. They should just tell us the true amount of different endings and let us know the degree of variations that there can be.
