These are the endings.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPelM2hwhJA
Now you're right, most of us wouldn't have the first clue about making a triple A game, and I've never been particularly prone to literary expression.
But where is the exposition covering the crew you've become attached to, the results of your sacrifice on your paramour, what happened afterwards to various planets because of your actions etc? Why is Joker suddenly fleeing the scene and how the hell did EDI (who I took on the final mission) manage to get back on board to be part of the synergy ending?? Why is there no ending where you may even survive (Joker swoops in, Garrus jumps out and pulls you onboard, you flee)? How do the sacrifices of those who died (in my case Mordin, Legion and Thane) factor in in any meaningful way?
You essentially get the same cutscene with a filter and a few minor alterations. The catalyst is the worst form of deus ex machina, reminiscent of the Matrix ie. Neo talking with the architect, and wasn't that a critical success? /endsarcasm
There is no option to forgo the ABC choice and reason with it, or fight it, you just accept the word of the galaxy cleansing AI.
3 games of forming relationships and pulling off the miraculous and none of it seems consequential.
As much as I think EA are a joke, an bioware worse.... if you dont like their games dont play them.
That's a load of BS, I enjoyed the game, I dislike the ending. If I didn't like the game that much, the ending wouldn't bother me nearly as much as it does.

Yeah, because investing in 3 games + DLC etc doesn't give you the right to expect something better than a trite dismissal from the series?
For the last 1+2+3 playthrough, I've cumulatively spent ~160 hours. Compare this to watching LOTR 1-3, SW 1-6 etc, it's far more time invested. And you get to make the choices to a certain extent, which means you are in control ie. a form of ownership of your characters destiny.
To have that all taken away from you is disappointing.
Oh yeah, I was born in the 70's so being one of the feckless entitled current generation isn't my problem...
I love how you set yourself up as our "intellectual better", because you feel you know whats better than the people who made the game. Remember it is JUST A GAME. Nothing here has hurt or effected you in any way shape or form.
It isn't about being apathetic, its being mature enough to know its just a mindless game that has no bearing on our lives in any shape. As such it doesn't rate a single moments thought beyond a bit of silly mindless entertainment to be forgotten 2 seconds after finishing it.
For you... Because you feel you know whats better than the other people who played the game
Assuming you played it. Given your opinion on BW, I'd hazard a guess you haven't. And if you did, you experienced no investment in the game whatsoever?
Must be sad to be that emotionally stunted (not that you'd notice I guess)... The best RPG's etc draw you in so you actually experience the highs/lows of the game as if you were there. Same with movies, novels, music etc. The problem with ME3 is that many people got drawn in over the course of the series and to spit them out with such an inconsequential ending does effect us.
But of course none of this matters since you're just trolling... Anyone who claims to care so little about the games or the people who made them who comes to a thread like this throwing down on people isn't doing it to defend BW from lawsuits... = P
