Screw Mass Effect's 3 "Ending"

Okay, so it seems BioWare and EA have chosen to not fix the ending of Mass Effect 3 even though the extremely vast amount of vocal players have asked/ demanded/ complained/ shouted for it. 

Oh BioWare, you used to be an amazing company. You used to make incredible games. In fact, I found the Mass Effect trilogy to be one of the most amazing games I have ever played (and I use that phrase very lightly) but felt the ending to the story was nowhere near where it should have been. In the light of recent events in which BioWare and EA have elected to not even discuss the issues with its customers, I have decided that I will not purchase a BioWare game for the foreseeable future. In fact, I may go so far as to say that I will no longer buy any EA games either. 

No, this isn't because I'm some whiny gamer who lives in his man cave and is afraid to talk to others. I am a hard working individual who enjoys playing video games as a pass-time. What I refuse to support is a company that doesn't care even in the slightest how its customers feel about its products. In this market, what all customers must realize is that if you don't like something, then do not support it. You want to do something to make EA listen to us? Then don't buy Assassin's Creed 3. Don't buy any of their games until they see reality. 

I'm not asking for riots, ranting, or anything else that makes us gamers appear as uneducated whiny children. I'm asking that we stare them in the eye, and tell them we will not buy from a company that doesn't listen to its customers. If even one game such as the new Assassin's Creed were to have a low turnout for just the first week because of Mass Effect 3, they would listen. It doesn't take much to get a company's attention. All it takes is for those interested to holdout long enough.
