Wow.. that sounds like a masochist's dream game..
@Enigma777: I hate that.. "it's the journey" bit.. Granted the journey was fun, rather wonderful really, but if the destination is somewhere I really don't want to go, the journey becomes a real drag. A journey that I have no ambition to take again anytime soon. :(
I got the N7 Hurricane.. wich.. made me sad... :( The recoil on it is ridiculous, like Sate2801 said, if you aren't in cover, good luck actually tagging something as it's cone just goes insane in short order. I fell right back to using pistols as I think that is another SMG that's going to sit on the shelf for me. :/
@Foxtrot0245: My good sir, you have inspired in me the laughter. Amazing usage of signage to place the point succinctly and perfectly. Well done, here here and cheerio. A follow for you and 87 bazillion internets.
@ShalashaskaUK666: Hated the endings myself, and there are a billion reasons out there allready. Great video though, interesting, but it just doesn't fit with the overall theme of ME I think.
Main reason for the reply.. "FUCKTACULARLY"... that word is amazing and I am just telling you that I am going to make an effort to use it from now on. Carry on chaps.
Edit: Words are hard.
Tempted to do a renegade run from 1 to 3 just to see what happens, but I allready know what choices I'll be given so the ambition kinda drained from me. Have all the ME2 DLC, but not everything from ME1.
@sodapop7: That's one of the things that bothered me. Yes the conflict was interesting.. and I didn't read anything about the ending before getting there at all. I loved, absolutely adored 95% of the game, until the ending hit. Here's 3 choices from a main character introduced in the last 5 mins of the game, where I had to make a decision that altered the entire fate of the universe with no information other then what I'm being force fed by a deus ex machina and being unable to ask the star child anything about the decisions. The entirety of my paragon run was reduced to A, B, or C... with no option for more information or to ask questions or get a meaningful dialogue. "This is the way it has to be for I am star child, make your choice." Then the resolution bit, I didn't get that, never mind the massive plot holes described in documents such as https://docs.google.com/document/d/1QT4IUepvrU1pfv_B95oQj0H84DlCTUmzQ_uQh1voTUs/preview?pli=1&sle=true I have no idea what happened to my crew, or earth, or the fleets, or the general universes as a whole. The thing I am missing is closure. Even if they wanted to slap down a 2 minute scroll of text telling me how things panned out ala the NES game days, even if it's a horribly sad ending and everyone died, I'd kinda like to know. There is the "use your own imagination" camp in this regard, but if i wanted to do that, I could just sit and day dream myself a story instead of playing through one.
I spent an amazing amount of time in the Mass Effect universe from 1 on, and enjoyed every minute of it, all up until the last 10-15 minutes, and those last minutes were what I was looking forward too the most. They were to be the culmination of everything I had put into the game, and they turned out to be "Lots of Speculation for everyone". This is the real reason I'm let down. Call me crazy if you like, but I am being left wanting more, wanting a reason behind the plot holes and such, and wanting a bit of closure. All in all, I want an ending I suppose.
Now granted, I am not trying to be inflamatory in this post or provoke an angry reaction, just explaining my point of view and why I feel a bit off when people are calling me "crazy" or "entitled." If this really is the way they want to end mass effect, with a completely open and speculative gap, more power to them. I personally did not enjoy it, and it left the series ending on a bad note for me. I'll definately be waiting for reviews of future bioware products as if this is a continued trend, I will not enjoy future productions from them.
And it would appear I typed a small novel.. I guess that just shows how feelings can get riled up by "just a game" ah well. Sorry for cluttering up the screen, as I said before, this is my opinion on the matter, no one elses, and if you loved the ending, fantastic. There are quite a few I hear who did. My friends and I are just left hoping for something more.
