Between Gearbox's outright lies about Aliens Colonial Marines, Not being anything like we were shown.  

And Bioware lying about Mass Effect 3's Ending, In fact it being exactly what they said it wouldn't be(I.E. "It won't be an A, B, C, ending." We got an A, B, C, ending.) 

Granted Both Companies tried fixing their Screw ups. Bioware with the Extended Cut DLC. Gearbox through multiple patches. But either way the Damage was done.

 

So which company "done fucked it up" more? 

 

Personally I have to go with Gearbox. Mass Effect 3 was still a great game, despite the ending. Colonial Marines had terrible A.I. and boring and uninteresting characters you could care less about.

Bioware's screw up was just an ending. 

Gearboxes Screw Up was an entire game. Not to mention Colonial Marines being Canon to the Movie franchise, leaves yet another foul stain on the franchise. Along with Alien 3 & Alien: Resurrection.

Honestly, I've never played Colonial Marine, so I can't really judge it.

And the first time I played through Mass Effect 3, (I got it day 1 it was out, and Beat it within the week.) The ending didn't bother me -that- much, until I started thinking about it. I got the Neutral ending, which in all reasonings seemed like the 'goodiest' ending. But after I started thinking about it, I started to think on how little closure there was... Damn it, I wanted to know what happened to my crew! Other then EDI and Joker. I wanted to know what happened to the Krogan after I cured the genophage, to make sure Mordin's sacrifice wasn't in vain. I wanted to know how my 2 important crew members (Tali and Garrus) were doing, or if they were dead. So in that respect, Bioware "Done fucked it up." 

Though not even that ending could screw up how amazing the whole Trilogy was. They were all really good games. (And Garrus was my Bro throughout it all!)

(I do however remember emptying a whole clip into that celestial child... Before of course the Extended Cut DLC.)

(Thank goodness about the damn Ending Closure DLC)

 

Although from reading what you said, it would seem like Colonial Marine was just a broken, typical crap game. :P

Gearbox messed up as mass effect was playable and at least had an ending.

Its hard to say, both are good devs with awesome games, but I'd say gearbox messed up more, mass effect 3 was a good game overall and the extended cut gave partial closure to most questions, aliens cm was just  an awful excuse of a game, at least mass effect 3 is playable.

Yeah I hope they really explain what happens to the crew and everything after in the next mass effect game. Even if it's some in game lore thing. I think it's fascinating wondering what happens to the crew after being stranded on a planet. Like can they even go anywhere since the mass relays blew up? I thought that the after credit part with the old man telling the story of shepard to the boy could have been a descendant of the crew making babies. And their ancestors are the stuff of legends to them or something.

There's no competition, Gearbox takes the cake. Even though the ME3 ending left more to be desired the rest of the game was amazing. I said at on point playing it, that "this is the Star Wars of video games". Colonial Marines on the other hand I said was " why was this even made?"

Bioware messed up the ending for a great game that everyone was waiting for and they messed up but the extended cut may of made up for it but it was full of disappointment even if gearbox messed up aliens it had good bits like it was aliens but the mass effect ending was much more disappointing
