So, I think the indoctrination theory is wrong, but it's still better than what we actually got. That's what pisses me off.


That's where I've arrived at it, too. It was all nice and comforting when it made sense of the horseshit, but now -- once the dust has settled -- I realize it's yet another example of BS wannabe-philosophical scifi cop-out writing. Bioware can do better.

Adding:

This video.

It took me awhile to beat the game with the amount of free time i've had lately. But I will say the last 20 minutes of the game didn't seem to fit with the rest of the series at all. (I played all mass effect games on day 1 for each of the three)

I'm not really sure what all the comotion is about the ending anyway really. The biggest upset already occured several hours before the end game: Tali's Face being a slightly photo shopped Getty Image. Here I thought Bioware knew what the quarians looked like the whole time...

If they redo the ending, it's not like it will make the fans any happier, but they better redo Tali too damnit!

That WAS kind of a giant "F U" on the part of the team, no doubt. I think honestly that annoyed me a lot more than any issue with the ending.

The short answer is that it's a complete non sequitur.

And a cheap way to cop out of actually producing the "wildly different" endings that were stated to take previous in-game choices into account.

Plus... it's just really lame, pretentious, wannabe-philosophical writing.

(Anyway, I realize it's a long-ass video I linked up there, but it's fairly well produced and entertaining. It explains the problems with the ending extremely well.)

I have to say, they might have made the story a bit disappointing but the multiplayer has just been wild. If a bit repetitive. Cant wait for new maps to open up and new mission types.

When I went through ME2 on renegade I decided to see what would happen if i pissed off Tali during her segment on the floatilla... Worst moment of the game for me. I couldn't believe I was actually depressed that she said she didn't want to talk to me again but would still work towards our common goal.

And E(gg)bert says games can't convey emotion and aren't a form of art. Well, he said it. Lately he's had to type it.

not at all! it means that they actually intended the ending to end that way. like, it wasn't some horrid fever dream or mass acid trip or something. like, after all that incredible storytelling and worldbuilding, they actually wanted it to end with that barfbag of an ending.

I alway just assumed the ending of Mass Effect 3 was pretty realistic. I think the destroy ending is canon, because you see shepard at the end, pretty much dying under a bunch of rubble. Everything that happened after Harbinger shot him was pretty much a near death experience, giving Shepards story a resolution while the actual war was still happening above earth. If I'm right, it's one of the best scifi endings ever. Pretty much being an ending that says no matter how much you worked, & how many impossible things you pulled off, you can't stop whats supposed to happen. The Reapers pretty much elude to that fact throughout the trilogy.

I really hope that, if Bioware changes anything, whatever dlc they release for the ending has you playing as someone else who ends up activating the catalyst. It would cement what Shepard was in all 3 gamesl just a soldier following orders, not a savior. It was always a team or grouping of people that made the endings of the previous 2 games possible, not just one person.

While I don't agree with that statement at all I do think the ending is getting too much hate right now.

I kind of like the resetting/splitting at the end because it makes the experience of the whole three games carry much more weight. Sure you saved all the species from getting culled but you won't be seeing them again any time soon!

The ending very much reminds me of being back in middle school, when we learned about cell mitosis, i always got really really depressed. :<
