So we have a no spoiler thread, I wanted one for spoilers and discussion of the game proper because i'm going to vent some issues I had with it
Keep all spoilers in the spoilers tags please. I know it's a spoilers thread but people will still look and people will be pissed, so would be good if you could just use the tags. If you don't know how, PM me and i'll tell you how to do it.
Ok that said,
Spoiler ->I really liked ME3. At it's core it was a great game, but some of the story let me down quite a bit. One main thing I noticed was that the last two games were all about the Reapers arriving and that when they did all hell would break loose. Then they arrive and ok folk are dying at first, then you go to Mars and find out it takes a few hundred years for them to kill everyone. You go from this grave threat that could just kill everyone to a regular ground war that may take hundreds of years to finish. Suddenly all the urgency is gone and it never picks up again. Every time you see Anderson on Earth he is fine, looks good, no problem.
My other main issue is the endings, ok in all but the very best ending he dies. That's fine happy endings are not required in storytelling but all the other characters who you pick up along the way that meet go to earth as a war asset to help you out, you never find out what happens to them. The Mass Effect relays are destoryed stranding the entire military force of the galaxy in the sol system. The Citadel blows up in one ending, what happens when that lands on earth?
So yeah, my main issue is not the endings, it's that they have left everything so open and with so many questions, something you don't expect at the end of a trilogy, unless its the fucking matrix. Saying that they followed the matrix up with an MMO and that answered most of the questions... now i'm hearing they may be thinking about a Mass Effect MMO, so maybe that's the plan.
