Happy N7 Day, fuckers.
Sweet, still haven't finished the third one and don't think I want to based off of what I've heard.
The ending wasn't that terrible. Like, I get why people were upset by it, but I don't think it was nearly as bad as everyone is making it out to be. Disappointing for certain, but not a game breaker.
I thought it was up there with the ending of Lost as far as all-time goal line fumbles go. It was just godawful in every way.
Perhaps. I think I'm looking at it from a perspective of "it's not the destination, but the journey." I found the game and the gameplay to be fantastic, even if the ending was lackluster.
I think the "destination over journey" argument is a cop out that applies more to games like Elder Scrolls or Fallout. Those are open ended games that are all about the journey. Mass Effect 3 was an action movie, and an action movie needs an epic ending that we just didn't get.
I'm not going to sit here and argue that the ending was a good one, because it wasn't. However, I don't think the bad ending should ruin what was otherwise an awesome game with tight gameplay and some great moments.
Agreed and it's mainly their own fault as they promised it would be more sophisticated but couldn't deliver.I think that would certainly be true of a game with a mediocre ending, but I just can't say the same for Mass Effect 3. The ending made me never want to play the game again.
I find most games have pretty underwhelming endings. The endings like Metal Gear Solid 3 are few and far between. Mass Effect 3's ending was a whole different level of awful, though.

Anyone know if this story carries straight on as Shepard or is it a different take in the same universe?
