I liked the Mass Effect 3 Ending! OMG!

15 replies 503 views Edited Apr 6, 2013

I know, right??

I just finished ME3 and I don't understand what all those people were **bleep** about? It seemed to have a perfectly reasonable ending. We were given 3 choices, to destroy geth, control them or synthesis... I chose to destroy... Umm.. wasn't that the plan the whole game? So, am I missing something here because I don't see anything wrong with it..

For me it was okay but the ending did not have the impact that the first two games did. Also if you just finished that game then you should have seen the "longer" version not the original.

Is not that people didn't like the ending, is that the ending wasn't a direct result of the decision the player makes throughout the game. No matter what your choices are through the game, the ending was meant to be the same. The conflict with this is that Mass Effect 1 & 2 are games that promote and reward choices.

I actually saw both the original and the extended cut. I initially didn't download the extended cut DLC,  so I experienced both endings. I admit the extended cut vastly improves the original, and all... I still wished for the cheesy happily ever after ending where Shepard lives and hi-fives his entire crew! lol... but the destroy ending is probably the closest to it, when shepard gasps at the end and my patner, Liara, doesn't put my name on the memorial wall, but just holds onto that plank.. She must have somehow known that I survived!

I didn't really care either way, personally. Though, in this case, it was in the hands of the customers. Which is nice to see a company do such a thing anyways. :smileyhappy:

It wasn't as good an ending as the first two, simple as that. Also, yeah, a lot of people expected a happy ever after ending as well. To take all that work you did throughout the whole ME series, and have it go to waste by shephard dying at the end, was complete bull imo. However, people reacted to the ending in such an immature way it was ridiculous...people saying it didnt deserve their money because of the ending, or that the whole game was good, except the ending is what make the whole game bad? Thats a little too much, gamers don't appreciate things like they used to, to base your whole experience off of an ending cutscene is ridiculous. Its the rest of the game that matters, if you had fun playing, thats all that matters.

oh sorry, i thought you didn't see the first one. Great that you like it.

 

I thought the game was pretty solid, there were many epic moments (specially on the issues with the different races) and it was building up pretty well. The part only part that i thought they could've done better was the last combat (battle on Earth) it felt just a like a regular battle.

 

Spoiler
I chose "Synthesis" by the way.

Yeah, the last boss battle wasn't really a boss battle. There were just hordes of normal enemies, coming at you at high frequency. They should have developed a "real" boss there...
