I'll try and keep this as short as possible.
I still haven't managed to get over that ending.
I don't think i have ever played a game where I'm just looking at my television for a good half an hour deciding which of the three stupid and basically identical options I'm going to pick.
I'm not mad that there wasn't an option to save the world and live happily ever after, bedding Kaiden every night and becoming some war hero who gets free drinks all night at Aria T'Loak's new club on Omega.
But in my opinion the three opinions made the last two games a waste of time. I think the explanation from that little boy was "this was going to happen anyway"...ok great so now can you explain how anything i did if the last two games actually meant something?
I guess i just wanted some option that made me feel like i had achieved something good.
Then i find that it doesn't really matter what option you pick because every ending is the frickin same. The mass replays all blow up no matter what you pick, and i'm sure the last ME2 DLC mentioned that if mass replays are destroyed it would resemble an atomic blast or something. So did everyone die? I shouldnt be left asking questions at the end of a trilogy Bioware!
The way i played ME3, it was all about Shepard bringing together the different races, making them finally get along, making life better on there homelands so that they can look forward to future.
But seeing as the mass replays are all destroyed and a whole bunch of people are stranded on earth, i guess that was all kind of pointless.
I ended up picking the destroy option, mainly because the other two sounded terrible and i wanted more information explain exactly what they meant. I guessing this was the renegade option but for me it sounded better than controlling the reapers.
By picking the destroy option that meant the Geth and EDI would be killed and also meaning that i had just wasted hours of the game helping the Geth gain free will, and somehow finally making them get a long with the Quarians.
Why did that little boy want all Synthetics killed anyway? Because the said they would get out of control and kill everyone? Ermmm hello douchbag i've just spent hours proving that there not going to do that with the whole Geth/Legion story line.
I at least wanted to know how the option i picked effected the universe but we got nothing, just Joker, Kaiden and co leaving the space ship with happy faces, not caring/knowing that i have just died..and i thought they where my friends.
What annoys me most is that the game is really frickin good but i forget about it because when i think of ME3 my thoughts instantly go to that ending.
I'm actually going to stop here because long posts don't get read
Though i do have much more to say on the matter and possibly when i have more time to reflect i'll be able to see the positive.This post has been edited by Kelly-Ann-xxx: Mar 17 2012, 19:23
