If those calling on BioWare to change the ending to Mass Effect 3 somehow get what they want, they would still be disappointed, says the creator of Bioshock, Ken Levine.
Speaking on a panel at the Smithsonian (in celebration of the new exhibit, 'The Art Of Video games'), Levine 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," he said.
"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."
Senior creative director at BioWare-Mythic, Paul Barnett, added that it is up to the developers to choose how they wish to end the name.
"If computer games are art than I fully endorse the author of the artwork to have a statement about what they believe should happen," Barnett said.
"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."
