Is this game's ending really that bad? *Please don't spoil*

No, the Extended Cut fixed it.

Congrats on NOT spoiling plot elements for this guy. Nice job.


My fault dude. I guess I kinda got carried away there for a second. But then again, this ending sorta does that to me sometimes...

I fixed the part that had potential spoilers in it.

As a big fan of ME2, there was a lot about ME3 besides the ending that really disappointed me. I don't want to go too much into the story of ME3, but by the time I was done I just felt like ME2 was made almost completely unnecessary. I never felt like the time that I invested in ME2 was rewarded in ME3 in any meaningful way.

It's a piece of fiction that was very sloppily written, filled with plot holes (which they did fix most of them in the EC) and a big ol sloppy dues ex machina.

Sometimes I feel many gamers don't indulge in other fiction like books or movies sometimes. The reaction was so over the top. It was like it was the first time anything they have ever read, played or watched disappointed them or something. I've read hundreds of books with poor endings and saw dozens of movies with equally disappointing endings. I didn't flip my s*** and ask the creators for a rewrite every time it happened. Sometimes things we like don't turn out the way we hope. You should go "oh damn, that sucks" and we move the F*** on. Criticize away but even the EC felt like to much of a creative concession to fan b****ing for my taste.

They pulled the best writer they had from ME3 to work on SWTOR. Promptly threw in a Deus Ex Machina, and made it feel like what you did in 1 and 2 was pointless. Also the breathing scene if you do things a certain way makes no sense with the way things are written. Yes, even with the extended ending it still sucks.

no. it was just below expectations for something as epic as mass effect

You do have to remember that unless a person has a slow reading speed, you won't find many a book or even book series that is of comparable length to Mass Effect (counting with 75-100 hours for a single playthrough of the trilogy, however most of the diehards had 5+ playthroughs).

If a book series I had spent that much time on suddenly went on a Deus Ex Machina trip out of nowhere I'd be a bit sour too.

Then again, I wasn't effected much by the ending, stopped caring for the story after ME2 hit.

It's horrid. I was feeling hangover for a week after it. Didn't see the extended cut version though.

Original ending was pretty much **** on all accounts.

The EC, no matter how flawed it is, feels pretty much like an ending. Yeah, ventboy still exists and there's plenty of other things wrong like the Normandy crashing on jungle planet for no inexplicable reason but really it should've been in the game at launch.
