Dead Space 3
Despite Dead Space 3’s insistence on throwing out a lot of what made the first two games in the series so unique, it managed to be a halfway decent game. But I think we all had high hopes for the way this trilogy would close.
Unfortunately, what we got was a poorly written ending where Isaac Clarke sacrifices himself to save Earth (and his sort-of-one-eyed main squeeze, Ellie Langford). It’s trite and clichéd, and even the emotional impact of Isaac’s sacrifice is lessened by a post-credits space message that suggests he’s still alive. You know, in case EA wants there to be another sequel.
I think we can all agree that this was a lazy way to end an otherwise phenomenal series. Isaac Clarke deserves better.
