So finally reading week is just around the corner and i'm finally able hopefully finish Mass Effect 2 so that I can get round to playing Mass Effect 3. I of course did hear that many people had concerns about the original ending, though had no insight since I had never played the trilogy until this past Christmas. So without any spoilers or hints at what may or may not happen, should I play the 3rd game with the original ending or with the "new" one? Thanks all!
Should I download the "Extended Cut Ending" for ME3?
Yes. That Extended Cut ending is by no means perfect, but it does clear up a lot of the problems with the original. Unless you're set on exploring the history of the series and exactly why people had a problem with that original ending, there's no reason to play it.
Let me put it this way: Brad went in to Mass Effect 3 with all of the DLC, including the Extended Cut, without having played vanilla ME3, beat the game, and was happy with it. Then he went back and read about all of the differences between original and extended cut, and was left with his mind completely blown.
