    Mass Effect 3Levine said: "I think this is an important moment. I think if those people got what they wanted and (BioWare) wrote their ending they would be very disappointed in the emotional feeling they got because ... they didn't really create it.

    "I think this whole thing is making me a little bit sad because I don't think anyone would get what they wanted if that happened."

    Paul Barnett, BioWare-Mythic senior creative director added, "If computer games are art than I fully endorse the author of the artwork to have a statement about what they believe should happen.

    "Just as J.K. Rowling can end her books and say that is the end of Harry Potter. I don't think she should be forced to make another one."
