Spoiler for end:


After all, why else does Shepard NOT disagree? Why does the players who made peace between the Quarian and Geth, not able to tell it to go screw itself?

Because that would require coming up with a different ending that wasn't just a slight variation of the others?

Isn't that the whole point of the synergy ending? Forcing peace down everyone's throats?

You missed my point. MY Shepard would never have allowed that AI to get away with talking trash like that. The entire argument was stupid, and my Shepard would have made that clear.

There was no need to force peace onto anyone because MY Shepard did all the leg work already. Synthesis isn't a solution; it is just a way to destroy all individuality. It is just as evil as any other choice, it just doesn't kill anyone directly. Peace isn't about making everyone agree; peace is about not kill each other despite disagreements. Making everyone the same doesn't create peace, it just (temporarily) bypasses the problem. It would be like saying we can't have wars if we are all one nation.

Whoa, what a ride. I just wrapped up the game, so here are some thoughts.

Readying my flame shield for this one: I thought ME3 had the best narrative out of the 3 games. There, I said it.

I'll get to the ending in a bit, but I really enjoyed the heck out of the story in this one. They managed to get back some of that political mucking that was the prevalent theme of the first game while taking the focus on the people of this world in the second game, mixed them up together and brought it up an ante. There were so many great, powerful moments in the game involving the cast and the world. The game also had some of the best dialogue in the series thus far (I really enjoyed the conversations involving the series's sillier moments and game mechanics. Off the top of my head, Conrad's talk about the thermal clips and James's/Steve's arguement about the mako/hammerhead. Also, the throwback to ME2's famous shepard line by Garrus made me LOL)

I can see where they wanted to go with the ending (Indoctrination theory/Future DLC notwithstanding) with Shepard basically becoming the equivalent of a messiah (That elevating to a higher plane of existance and whatnot). I'm disappointed by how little the choices you made in the game up until then mattered in the ending. Hell, I didn't even like it that they gave you a choice of ending. I always saw the ending of the ME trilogy to be culmination of everything you've done, and the choices you had made, which would determine what ending you get. Not to mention the many plotholes pointed out in the theory. Guess we'll have to wait and see if that rumor of "THE TRUTH" DLC has any credibility. So yea, the ending was a blot on the series, but discounting it, ME3 had the best journey in the out of the 3.

I fully expected Shepard to die. What was a let down for me was the fact that with the gates down, galactic civilization is pretty much dead. All my choices, my prepping galaxy for Geth and Rachnai acceptance, and it was all for naught because the systems can no longer stay in contact. There was no epilogue, nothing. Just three endings that all result in galactic remoteness. I guess the synergy ending would result in the beings finding fast travel, but the others are meh.

A funny 4 sentence review I found

The ending to this game will be a rip off of deux ex's ending.

Tali's face is a shitty photoshop off a photobucket image

It was all a story a granpa was telling his grandson. Including all the gay sex in it.

Though ME1's Shepard+Liara was probably the least awkward and most sensible. And also pissed off the fundies the most.

The sex scene with Femshep and Specialist Traynor was a whole new level of retarded. Showering with your military uniform on? Who in the fuck thought that was a good idea?

Fixed that for you anyways, tali x shep's scene was a bit lacking but it was fine when he wakes up. she's such a care bear <3

Not to be mean but, they really should have left out any new romances. the new same sex romances were unnessisary and done very crappy. I belive any real gay/lesbian would have been fine without them. It's the last game... any romance started in ME3 is way too short and no development.

If there's gonna be a new romance choice, it should have been Kael'reegar for fem shep and Garrus's sister for male shep XD

Eh, Shepard only walked upto her with uniform still on. I'm sure it was taken off straight after.

Enough with the nitpicking.

I really don't think that Synthesis feels like some middle ground. Instead of believing in the efforts you've made it's just forcing something on everyone. It would be like making everyone have the same appearance to prevent racism. The whole game you prove how its possible to make different sides cooperate (even Geth and Quarian) but in the end you should choose to just force similarity on everyone? The whole Star Child's reasoning made me want to shoot him. Oh wait I tried to but it didn't work .

I think I understand why people hate Origin so badly now. I tried to purchase a Spectre back, but for some reason the transaction didn't work. Fair enough.. except it took my 60,000 credits and never gave it back. This has happened twice now. And the horrible customer service doesn't help either. So freaking frustrated right now.. bleh.
