Happy Game Ending Explained: Even though Audemus’ Happy Ending Mod has been floating around the internet for quite a while, it has recently received a significant amount of attention due to the game’s recent Mass Effect Legendary Edition update, which has many people talking about this alternate ending that aspires to provide a slightly happier and generally more complete conclusion for Shepard and his crew of the Normandy.
But what is it about this joyful ending that makes it so special? In fact, there’s quite a bit, but here’s a quick rundown of what this mod is all about and why so many people are racing to download it in time for their current Legendary Edition game session.
We’ve included simply the conclusion and its explanation in this video in case you don’t want to play the game but only want to view or understand it, since there are definitely spoilers in it. Although we urge that you complete the preceding guide in order to do this.
It might be difficult to deal with sad endings in video games. After all, you are the protagonist, and it is only normal for you to want things to go well for your character. Consequently, for a long time, games tended to avoid excessively gloomy endings for fear of losing players who had engaged themselves in seeing their characters triumph in the end, which was understandable. A few titles, on the other hand, were really concealing some rather tragic tales behind the surface of their joyful endings.
The Covenant and the Flood are destroyed by the time Halo 3 comes to a finish, and the whole galaxy is spared from annihilation. It seems to be a traditional happy conclusion, don’t you think?
Assuming you disregard the fact that an estimated 23 billion people died throughout the course of the conflict, many colony worlds were left uninhabitable, and virtually all of the Earth’s armed forces and ships were destroyed. The world will need your help, so best of luck to you.
Certain actions you make during the game will have an impact on which of three possible endings you will get. Each conclusion is symbolized by the final painting that the player has been working on throughout the tale; this painting might be a self-portrait, a family portrait, or his wife’s portrait, among others.
In the last scene with his wife, the painter finds himself trapped in an eternal loop, forced to repeat the same cycle over and over again. He is dissatisfied with the artwork of his late wife since he constantly sees her wounds rather than her beauty in the painting. In the last scene of the family picture, the painter realizes that his actions have alienated those who are most important to him, and he decides to destroy the paintings, himself, and the home.
In the last scene of the self-portrait, the painter concludes that his conduct was required in order to become a great artist, and he celebrates his brilliance by showing his work.
