Besides, I belong to the minority that thinks that the ending was good actually. Yes, it is illogical and confusing. But it is probably the most emotional ending I have ever seen in both video games and movies. Especially with Extended Cut. They really kicked it with the music and cinematic. It is definitely better than in other Bioware games with their generic happy ends.
Thank you for all the doubts, and for all the questioning,
for all the loneliness and for all the suffering.
For all the emptiness, and the scars it left inside.
it inspired in me, an impetus to fight.
Personally I didn't mind the ending. For me the whole third game was an ending, as I saw the conclusion of what I considered to be the real stories - that of the Krogan and Geth/Quarian situations. I found those to be much more interesting and involving than the Reapers invasion which was just some unfathomable cosmic horror we'd need a deus-ex-machina to take down, and as deus-ex-machina go I appreciated the Asimovian final choice even if it was (initially) a bit brief.
Just had a thought,
Wouldn't it be incredibly awesome to see political factions forming in the fourth game? Such as a Krogan - Human alliance, emerged from an honor bond based around N7 operatives, Shepard spesifically, curing the genophage. Witnessing a bromance between Humanity and the most unlikely of all species, Krogan military defending Human rights in every chance they get and so on, would certainly be unusual.
Let's assume that the emerging factions have disagreements over the ownership of dead reaper shells and weaponry, causing an Allies - Axis situation in the long run. An adventure with no greater evil to defeat, nothing heroic, and certainly not a monomyth. Just playing a character struggling to survive and accomplish his personal or national goals in his own way, in a galaxy at war. That would be refreshing.

When I was going up the elevator, I was like " YES! Now, all will be reveled!"
Then the catalyst happened.. "Oh..."
Then the R-G-B Ending happened.. "......Oh"
Then the old man/kid started to talk "..............."
Then I turned my PC off and went to bed, felt bad man.
Am I the only one that finds the Vanguard class infuriating ? I have to freaking spam charge in order for it to work sometimes... this is really aggravating especially in multiplayer where charge can save lives ... there's a dude basically 5 feet in front of me and it just won't fucking charge him at all for whatever reason...
Right now, Mass Effect 2 beats Mass Effect 3 by a very small margin on the list of best games I've ever played. If Mass Effect 3 did not have such a horrible ending, it would have bashed Mass Effect 2 into the ground and might have actually been the best game I've ever played.

Statix will suffice.
I actually enjoyed the lack of a boss fight. Too few games go that route.

You know a community is bad when moderators lock a thread because "...this isnt the place to talk about it either seeing as it will get trolled..."
Marauder Shields was the boss, you silly gooses.
To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
I’m not that arrogant.
The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.
Hey folks. I haven't played ME3 yet and don't know the story, so I'm doing my best to avoid reading any of the posts in this thread. I just got the digital deluxe edition during Amazons digital sale and I want the "good" DLC's which have better endings. I've heard that I should get the extended cut DLC and the Citadel DLC. Are there any others I should buy? I want to get and install them before I start playing. I just finished ME1 and I'm working on finishing ME2 again so I can have a perfect save file to bring over. Thanks for the advice.
