Mass Effect 3 Discussion
I'm half tempted to post every spoiler detail I can think of. including the fact that the game builds us up to care about Shepard and individual members of her crew... every single one of which (including Commander Shepard) is KILLED OFF!
Of course, the Reapers are destroyed... but by the time that happens EVERYONE we care about in the game is DEAD!
What an incredible disappointment... what a rip!
I definitely agree the ending feels a bit cheapened to be funneled by the plot line into a "press a button" "pick a door" ending. I preferred the ME2 ending where along the way your choices impacted who lived and died at certain steps. I never noticed the same type of behavior during the ME3 ending sequence.
I expected ME3 to be a vastly superior game, but throughout the game I'm noticing issues with lip syncing, vanishing characters, textures/artifacts that vanish and reappear, and a lot of graphical issues that detract from the game.
Not only that, but a lot of the results of the decisions made in the previous two games are present throughout the main campaign, yes, but many of them seem short attempts to just tie up the threads before the finale. I have yet to finish the game, but seeing Jack in a single mission and in a bar, watching characters die off, it just seemed half-arsed.
But the part that killed me was this:
After the trouble of saving the Normandy SR2's crew in ME2, killing off a likable character like this just seemed wrong.
Mind you, I'm not a writer. I'm going for programming and 3D animation. But to me the whole game seems very rushed. I somewhat wished they'd put more effort into it. Whether this meant that certain threads would be tied up with DLC or the game release date were pushed back, I'd have had a much warmer reaction to the game either way. Knowing Bioware's past, I think I'll blame EA for the issues, though.

Ok... and we find out at the end that the little kid is the avatar for the Reapers. So Shepard should have killed him already... but no. He gets to decide Shepard's choices at the endgame. Gimme a break!
The ending alone was enough to make me want to give up computer games for the rest of my life. ME3 really, really SUX!
It sounds like you got one of the crummy endings. I haven't played the game, let alone finished it, but I've read enough to know that in the "good" ending, you have no idea if your crew is dead or not. It's like saying ME2 was the worst game ever when you got the bad ending because everyone but Joker died.
I'm sorry, opinions are one thing, but when you say that a game is the worst ever because it's not a happy fluffy story with a heroes ending is just silly.
That's one point.
Yes, I agree, the choices sucked. Die, die or um Die. But I was expecting that you see. Shepard has always been willing to sacrifice him or herself to save people. This case is no different.
I myself went with Symbiosis. (The middle option) and the ending, despite the mass relays being destroyed, was not bad. Sure Joker and EDI and a few others, (ashley in my case) are stranded in some planet, with plants made of organic and synthetic material. But everyone lived, and it was a "happy" ending.
At the end, you see the stargazer, he is human, therefore you know humanity survived.
I personally did not see kelly chambers. (I guess you only do if you romanced her in me2 or got her to feed ur fish or w.e)
The loose ends did feel crappy to be honest. Felt like they just tried to get everything to come full circle, regardless of how it happened.
Also did no one notice that through the entire game, you help all these people in the citadel, and the citadel defense force, and what not. and in the end, it all gets destroyed anyway? lol that was funny to me...
Anyway, now I will play FemShep, once I do Arrival with her in me2.
I will choose paragon (blue) ending this time, instead of middle.
Also if anyone got their Shepard to "breathe" at the end, what choices did you make, and how did you do it!?

As far as the story goes, and the ending. I am not really sure what to feel about that. I mean that avatar being in child form was most likely just Shepard's interpretation his mind came up with as to a form. Otherwise it does feel like a bit of a cop out, and makes me feel a little sad, but I did enjoy the game nonetheless.
Well thats a load of bad news to hear sorry for you my friend,but please do not list any SPOILERS its bad for the members who have not played the game (With Respect to you)and its a shame that its turned sour for you! sell it on for a qick resale and get some cash back.
