The only good moment in the entire 3rd game was the raid on Tuchanka, (though I barely had any of my guys left over from Mass Effect 2) I blew a good 90 hours of my life that I'll never get back, but I'm glad I had the expeirance. Can't have good without bad, no?
Oh, and the ending...I think I'll take that video's advice, and just pretend it had Garrus and Shepard drinking Mojitos on a beach with a bunch of dead Reapers in the background. Kind of like what Gears 3 wanted to do, but cool.
If you didn't like the first why did you buy 2 and 3?
Well, I thought it was going to get better, which it did, I mean ME 2 is a pretty good game, but that was it. I liked the reveals of certain Characters (Garrus comes to mind) and how the whole thing was put together. I liked the Illusive Man, and cheered when I found out he was played by Martin Sheen (I speculated before hand, but thought it was a good impersonation) I was even thrilled at the ending, and re-did it just to ensure certain characters would live. Overally, a good game.
Mass Effect 3 was the same shit as the first, only with a non-ending and a few good moments. (Garrus Vakarian's favorite place on the citidel) but it was crummy, and I almost feel like a worse person having played through all three parts.
Upon further review, however, I'm willing to accept the extended ending. I did want Shepard to die, and I think this provides enough closure to the story.
Before it can be filmed, drawn, acted or programed, it must be written.
