Why did Bioware have to f*** up ME3's ending....

This series could've been up there with MGS series, Final Fantasy series, GTA series, the old Blizzard games, etc. in terms of legendary series status but now it will be just an average series that people will forget in 5 years. That's how bad an ending can affect an entire series because it was just that horrific.

That's what selling yourself to EA does to your series.

Because Casey Hudsun and Mac Walters wanted to prove that games are art. In 2012.

If the end ruined the whole journey for you, that's kind of stupid. Then again, MGS stories are ridiculous all the way through, so I don't get why you let it bother you in one series and not another.

People are still going on about this? It's been over a year at this point. There's only so much overblown butthurt megarage that can be sent out before you get your posting privileges revoked, ya know.

That's why they gave out the extended ending free, I suppose.

This sounded extremely dramatic.

I actually did hear the "sell more DLC" theory from some reviewers during a live blog.

It's true that Javik, the last of the protheans, provides a lot of backstory and context that helps you better understand the antagonists, especially during the mission to the Asari home-world.

Then there's the Leviathan DLC that makes the ending somewhat coherent, though it doesn't remove some of the more annoying plotholes and contrivances.

I don't think wanting to "sell more DLC" is the reason for the **** ending, but I can't completely discount it either.
