| Mass Effect 3 will always have the worst ending of all time. (no spoilers)|
You can probably find games with worse endings in individual aspects, such as FFVII or Ripper, maybe Bioshock if you're really harsh on it, but the difference is that those games were the ending to ONE game. ME3 was the ending to a WHOLE FRANCHISE. And yes, EA were probably going to jump on its corpse and make more games, squeezing as much as they could out of it, but the main series would always end with Mass Effect 3. And in that regard, in terms of wrapping up a story that lasted three games and drew hundreds of thousands of fans into the series, invested them in the characters, in the world, in the story, to give us such an abrupt, short, piece of sh*t ending. The extended cut isn't much better; it still comes out of nowhere and is way too brief.
Seriously, call the whaambulance or something. What were you guys expecting out of a ending?
(giant spoilers below)
I don't know, something that fit with the narrative structure of the game, something that rewarded the player's choices instead of all being the f*cking same, something that provided closure while still leaving some questions and mistory, something which rounded off the characters, something that wasn't a massive deus ex machina that the writer's just pulled out of their ass, something that made sense. All of the above.
| The ending ended for open-minded individuals, to let you sit around and spectate as to what happens next, |
Nope. No it did not. Since the mass effect relays are destroyed in all of the endings and since it is shown in the Mass Effect 2 DLC Arrival that the destruction of a relay causes a super nova, destroying the system, and all its planets. Therefore, If you are smart you will now notice that regardless of you actions you destroy every system in the galaxy, every star, every planet, every life And the fact that the fleet was in the Sol system which was destroyed by the relay super nova, it meant the horrible death of every soldier and fighter in the known galaxy. Even if they did survive, every race in the galaxy is hovering around Earth, and there is no way for them to travel anywhere else so everyone will starve to death due to lack of resources and space. Wars would break out and the Krogans would probably dominate due to being the strongest and eat everyone.http://www.youtube.c...T1k8QOY#t=1m00s
| but that was to hard for people to grasp as they wanted every single answer down to detail. |
No, even an idiot could figure how it made no sense and how the crucible came out of nowhere. Seriously, the main reason why the Reapers destroy everything is to stop organics from being destroyed by synthetics, despite the fact I managed to enlist EDI and the whole f*cking Geth army on my side, who both joined because they wanted to help on their terms. I got the Quarians and the Geth to solve their differences! That destroys the Reaper's argument that synthetics will destroy all organics when the synthetics are helping us! Not to mention that the whole motivation is basically "I heard you didn't want to be killed by synthetics so I created some synthetics to kill you every 50000 years." That makes no sense.
And don't get me started on the arbitrary blue, red and green choices, dear god, I hate that so much. The whole ending sequence just comes out of nowhere!
We didn't want "every single answer," we just wanted a conclusion to a series who all cared about. There were so many deep, rich characters in the series and it deserved a better send off. They fixed a few of the issues with the extended edition with some of the timing of how your crew got back on the Normandy and tried to make your choices feel different but the same problem of it coming strait out of left field still exists.
| This is not a ending to a franchise, as EA would be completely retarded not to develop more games for this massive and rich virtual world that Bioware has created. |
Yes, the massive and rich world that Bioware blew to smithereens at the end of this game so anything else in the series will either be a prequel where your choices won't be important because its still got to fit into the main canon of the first three games and it won't matter anyway because of the universe being blown up or so far in the future just so technology can catch up to where it was that the series no longer resembles itself and may as well not be called Mass Effect!
| I wasn't disappointed with the ending, and this is coming from a person who has been playing Mass Effect a few months after its release. I'm just astounded that so many cry babies actually made this team re-work a ending... |
Good for you. I presume you haven't played the first two have you? Its people like you who defend EA when they keep exploiting the layman who sicken me.
| just like weak parents to a spoiled child in a toy store, just ridiculous. |
Yeah, how dare a company try win back tons of fans who were generally displeased with their product. EA should have stood their ground and lost a whole ton of sales from fans who wouldn't spend their well earned money on their products. EA shouldn't care about customers at all.
| "worst ending of all time." |
"I liked the ending"
Wait, no, not lol. Its no laughing matter. Simply put, ME3 has the worst f*cking ending of all time. F*ck Bioware, f*ck Casey Hudson, f*ck the crucible and f*ck EA.
