Most video game fans I find are just some of the most narrow minded and easily winded up people on this planet. They on one hand willow on about games not innovating then when they do or change too much it becomes too mainstream or trying to appeal to the CoD fans.
As someone who didnt hate the original ending all that much, I am pretty satisfied with the extended cut. For me it cleared up all the sloppyness near the end of the game and at least showed what happened with my choices albeit in still form. I had to say I enjoyed and also the ending you get from shooting the cut is priceless for me.
Also when Anderson and Shepards are put on the memorial on the Normandy :( all around.
