Mass Effect 3 Discussion
The thing that annoyed me the most was the reason for the reapers. Unless I missed something The reason the reapers were killing all advanced organic life was so that organic life wouldn't go to war with Synthetic life. I mean seriously, Synthetic life killing all organic life so Synthetic life wouldn't kill all organic life? IF that's it I feel a bit cheated.
I was happy with the game over, all the game play was good and the story for the most part was solid.

This is NOT a spoiler just a theory though, but a very interesting one.
Hmm... I've seen that theory around a lot. Even during ME2 after Project Overlord I believe. But really... if people are upset over the endings as they are now, are they really going to be happy with an "it was all a dream" ending?
I mean, how far back do you take it? The ending sequence was a dream? The events after the Geth server mission were a dream (though you can actually bypass that mission, so not everyone will have had it)? Maybe the entire series has been Shepards dream?
I dunno, I just can't see a lot of people - myself included - being happy with that ending. It's good as a theory, but in practice I think it'll be shunned more than this ending.
People are just upset that their character is now dead after so much time and effort invested. (In fairness I understand that one of the endings leaves you alive-ish, but the problem only temporarily abated. Which still isn't a solution.) BioWare like a world-hardened uncaring parent has just said "Oh well, we'll get you another one one day. Maybe soon." and told you to get over it. A good parent at least attempts, on some level, to explain why. After I walked into the beam of light and everything turned green and the whole world became a mix of synthetic-organic life I do want to know at least a little of what happened to the world, what happened to the universe, but barring that I wanna know what happened to the people I care about most. Especially since I collected all the war assets I could manage, played MP to get 100% readiness, and had an effective readiness of just shy of 7,000.
I'm watching from the great bar in the sky, remember? Now IMO I think that for those characters that chose a compatible reproductive companion (ie FemShep and Liara or MaleShep and w/e compatible female he got with), that character should end up pregnant. That alone would have gone a LONG way towards making me happier with the endings provided. Especially after my FemShep forsake her relationship with Garrus, turned down Kaiden, missed a very potentially hot shower with Traynor, all to tell Liara she loved her and wanted to spend her life with her after it was over. The icing on the cake, even if was a crap-cake, could have at least been that Liara was pregnant after and that a part of Shep gets to live on even if she doesn't.
The partial ending that BioWare stuck us with might as well have been a knife through the heart of anyone that got even the slightest bit attached to their character. And that is, I think, what everyone is most upset about. At this point, after three massive games, it's almost like Shepard was a member of the family.
We hoped for more.
TL;DR: Screw you, read it anyways.
The final mission part when:
Here's the link regarding that "hallucination" theory:

I'll read the spoiler part when I've finished the game, so apologies if you've covered something I'm going to say.
Either way, I'll be severely disappointed if any part of the game turns out be be "just a dream". That's an even worse cop-out than killing everyone is.
I remember when TV shows and books did that. There'd be a whole show or book with all of this action, great stories, great characters, etc etc, and then at the end the main character would wake up. I'm not a fan of things where the main character dies (bar a few exceptions), but that's even worse. It makes everything you've gone through entirely pointless.
I'm curious to know what people think the alternative is though. I mean, if a part of the game was a dream, what was actually happening in reality? Are the Reapers still attacking the Galaxy?
If I find the thread, I'll link you to it once you finish the game.
A lot of IGN members are ****ed off at one of their contributors who made a video, basically flaming people who are on the different ending campaign. I'm not really surprised, IGN is owned by Rupert Murdoch, same as Fox news, and they are not exactly known for a "fair" approach...
Just thought that was funny.

Thanks, I'd appreciate that.
I'll also check out the link you posted, Ghostwolfalpha, when I finish too.
