Who said shepard was having a dream?

Or did people not realise he was actually in the process of being Indoctrinated?

Major spoiler below don't look if you haven't completed the game....

Spoiler:

And the young boy was never on earth at all, only Shepard could see him due to prothean beacons etc. The boy is in fact the entity that controls the citadel and co-ordinates the reapers

I very much like the game so far and I have no problems with the writing so far. ME3 is massive, 15 hours in and I'm only still in Act 1, with two more acts to go.

I know many people like to say how the story was so great in ME1 but you could say it was a somewhat sappy space opera. The Reapers had some mystery but it wasn't that big of a deal. ME1 is not the greatest science fiction writing that some people make it out to be. ME1 had gaps also. Not to mention the running around after minor criminals and such with the galaxy at stake.

I love the whole ME series, I think some people just like to hate on ME3 because its the thing to do right now. Each game had its positives and negatives. But overall an excellent series.

Agreed.

We all heard much the same arguments and complaints about ME2, but now ME3 is being compared to ME2 like ME2 is the best game of the series.

Give it 12 months and most people will be saying how ME3 is the pinnacle of Sci-Fi storytelling and gameplay.

To my Tag partner. Its all just hype and in thing. Once people get off the proverbial golden ***** thats deep in there tight and see what the game is properly and not nit pick into it. Everything can not be perfect or it would just be boring. Just play and enjoy what you have

While I get what everyone is saying, and I can understand how an ending you may not necessarily agree with may upset you, I don't think you can take away what the Mass Effect series brings to the party. Choices and consequences. I can't think of any other game series that gives you this level of tying the choices made in the first game with outcomes rippling into the third game. I played ME3 for almost 12 hours before realizing I wish I had made different choices in ME2. (Has to do with romance. I just can't stand being a douche character.) So now I'm back in ME2 making different choices that are more in line with how I want my character to develop. Than I'll start ME3 over. This is what I think the developers were going for, a series of games that gives you this level of interactiveness.
Now if a game can create in a player this level of commitment, it's got to be considered a great game regardless of how you feel the story should end. For me the fact that the game has ended is what is most disappointing. It's like saying goodbye to a good friend. And maybe that's what upset most of you. I wonder how the developers and creators feel? Having to say goodbye and kill off characters that they are much more invested in than any of us players will ever be. Perhaps the ME universe will continue in the future, if so I will be first in line to play. In the meantime I'll continue playing the 3 games I have and unlocking all the different choices they give me.

SkyHeart is right. The OP got a crappy ending so they are judging the entire game on ONE ending. ME3 Has 17 different endings or more. Depending on if you imported a previous character from ME1/2. Or started a new game.

Me3 has "good" endings as well. I for one also agree that i was not expecting nor even wanting a nice save the galaxy and all of us get medals ending.
I like the fact of an all out assault/slaughter that does not end happily.

Me3 is not poorly written.It it a great story.I love it so far and am looking forward to playing it numerous times.Even going to play through ME2 to get different choices/endings in ME3.

As far as posting spoilers.Just because you got a "bad" ending don't ruin the Game experience for the rest of us who love this game.

@Lizml86 -- I just finished the game a few minutes ago. I got Shep to breathe by:
--1. Doing every quest I could. I'm quest driven. Been playing RPGs since dice were involved. The quests got my readiness up which is the most important thing. I missed about 5 quests in Act I, of which I had 3 ready to turn in, but Act II started and I couldn't.
--2. Got every species to work together (geth+quarian)... again, goes towards Readiness.
--3. Visited every system and gathered every resource I could... again, goes towards Readiness. --you should see a pattern here--
--4. I played "full" Paragon, with just a tiny, itsy-bitsy red line sitting at the bottom.
--5. The ending between Illusive Man, Anderson and myself... I went Paragon again, so there was only gun shot.
--6. I don't know how much this played into it, but I talked to ALL my crew after every mission (not system scan, but missions).
--7. I went with killing the reapers. I was very torn between that and synth, I think in new game+ I'll go with synth, but I know Shep will be absorbed.

*In ME2 I destroyed the Collector Base. No deaths during suicide mission. Was paragon in both 1 and 2. Played all DLC in ME2 with all crew side missions (no deaths on suicide)... but I don't think dlc would have had Any impact at all on ending.

On a side note for the ending... Slowest... Walk... Ever!!! LOL

Ok step seven was the only one I did not do as well.
