don't make some idiot comment that everybody is just pissed that the game ended instead of how it ended. I have the right of an opinion. And if you piss me off and i piss you off then why dont we just both shut the f up about ME3

I wasn't the one griping about a tired subject. I call it like I see it. You don't want to look like an asshole then stop acting like one.

You know I think you guys are more pissed that Mass Effect ended than by the way it ended...
WTF. Just think about what you said. If that was true, we would be happy that they are continuing the series.

Maybe there's a reason everyone hates the ME3 ending. Just saying...

What exactly happens in ME3's ending that has everyone so mad? I've never played the Mass Effect games so I'm quite interested.
Well...I'll try to keep it short. Here are my main problems with it.
1. All your decisions from the entire series, from smaller ones like saving or killing an ally, to big ones like deciding whether to kill an entire species or save it, become worthless. Your Shepard doesn't matter. You get a red, blue, or green ending.
2. Lack of closure (which was mostly fixed by the Extended Cut dlc). You don't know if you survive. What happens to the rest of the galaxy. The other species. Your crewmates (who are almost unanimously agreed to be the best part of Mass Effect).
3. I'll have to be vague to keep it free of spoilers. Let's just say, at the end of the game (seriously, the last ten minutes), they invent something that A: makes no sense, and B: basically retcons the first game.

Here's a quote and link to a very good (full of spoilers though) article that addresses most of my issues with the ending of ME3.

Hence why I said most but the subtle intricacies of the english language elude you. Besides if you had FINALLY gotten over the ending only to find out it is in fact being continued then you would be pissed then too.

Maybe you guys need to jus shut it. We and Bioware have heard all you have to say. And frankly while you may have made some legitimate claims now its butthurt feelings. Move on...

Stop using Mass Effect as an analogue of life... Its a videogame and its obviously not going to be perfect.

I'd say FULL STOP after the the first sentence but think about it you are Shepard if you don't see what happens to you teammates and the galaxy at large cause you neck deep in rubble (Or actually quite dead then what kind of RPG would it be?

They actually let on with subtle clues but many people miss this in favor of "Oh who am I to bang in this game LOLOL"

And let me begin to describe why your little 'spoiler' is an incorrect analogy of the series as a whole. 1. The One Ring actually does have a will of its own that corrupts as it goes. And Sauron was its maker therefore its maker's will is also it's. Its influence is both small and large (depending on who you loook at) however but that whole schpeel about all that is just... wrong and obviously you either haven't actually read the books or remember things very wrong.

As for how many people would actually say anything in the theater is debatable.

Throughout the the movies and 6 novels and though we understand a great deal about Middle Earth there are things that even Tolkien didn't and wouldn't elaborate upon. So do we really know the laws of this universe as intrinsically as you claim?

Anyway the that argument is flawed from the ground up, feel free to turn this back on me like I'm the one being belligerent however.

BTW my buddy says your a Nerf-herder

best of luck to Bioware.. can't see myself buying this, though... certainly not on release day .. I'd probably have faith in this being good if they had fired Casey Hudson and put someone else in charge (oh, and re-hired Drew as head writer) .. then I might be tempted

Wait, wait, wait. Youe seriously harping on me actually liking Bioware. This and then you go on to make an off kilter joke about not having an opinion lol. This just screams troll, and "Stop liking what I don't like guys". Well seeing asyou have no other argument I guess were done.

Just like how you have been screaming "Stop hating what I like" for the past few posts?

No I did in fact say to stop saying the same thing thats been said repeatedly for months. Though I can see how someone who doesn't read would assume that.

Saying something a lot doesn't mean it is less true. Especially when everyone is saying it.

Children.. please. Logic!

Look. Saying something is true doesn't make it true.

A lot of people saying something is true, still doesn't make it true.

A lot of people saying something is true -- doesn't make it false on it's own (even if that tends to be how it works. And things are a bit iffy when we're talking about opinions on entertainment).

....

..And I'm sure the ME3 ending had been great if Bioware had explored the indoctrination path a bit better, for example. But as it stands, it's a contradictory mess that breaks with the entire series... as well as the story up to even the point right up to where you're presented with the final segment.

I mean, what they're doing is to shift the point of view of the story-teller. Before the segment begins, you would see things as Shepard sees it. That's how things are told throughout the entire series - you are Shepard. People talk to Shepard. Shepard makes calls.

And towards the final segment you're gradually removed to a spectator role -- while still being allowed to control Shepard through the scene, and you also make some sort of choice at the end that the story tells you is your own.

It's just bad form. Bad narrative that breaks apart.

It's as if the director on Ghost in The Shell found out that the Major didn't need any real motivation throughout the entire film, so they just removed every hint throughout the film that led to the point where she has steamy hot nano cyber sex with the computer virus. Because, the writers would have said if they worked at Bioware, what's important is actually Batou's story. In the sense that an unspoken narrative between Batou and the Major is what /really/ explains the drama -- /if/ it had been explained in the film more directly.

That would have been about the same level. I mean, the team they had to write ME2 even was so good they could have made ME3 into something really memorable. And instead we got more "Plan 9 and the Humanoid Reaper from outer space". ..

Did I ever say it wasn't true? I don't think I did, I said it was annoying. And tedious as all hell. I can tell people for months that water is made of one part oxygen and two parts hydrogen, and eventually someone is gonna tell me to shut it cause everyone knows and to move the *bleep* on.

What everybody seems to be forgetting is how little any of their opinions matter. To quote Warren Spector from an episode of GI Replay "It's an artform damn it". Bioware is the games creator, they could have ended it with a monkey throwing his shit around the Normandy if they had wanted to. As the fanbase it isn't our place to make ungrateful demands but to make rational and respectful critiques.

I didn't like Duma Key by Stephen King but I didn't send him letters (the equivalent of posting on a developers forum) that read "OMG King u r asshole for writing ur shitty book, i hope you get and die of canceraids and I'MNEVERREADINGANYTHINGYOUWRITEAGAIN!!!" Because I'm bigger than that
