About the game's ending, I've been wondering about something...
When you see the last cinematic, of the old man and the kid, the old man agrees to tell of another Shepard story...
Then, you are transported back to the moment you enter TIM's solar system, before you attack him. My question is, is it a "snap out of it"
moment?... I restarted the game and later, I thought I should have retried the game from that moment, knowing what would happen, maybe leading to
What I expected for the ending was that, according to your past choices, you would get many endings, ranging from total annihilation of evolved
species, Reapers win, to one where Shepard and his many friends have a last party, celebrating their total victory over the Reapers, breaking the
cycle, with everyone having fun, and Shepard giving us all a last dance!
I also expected to learn that the Reapers were the First Artificial Beings built by the First of All Biological Races, getting into war with one
another, with the Reapers winning and then deciding, over time, as new races evolved, built Artificial Beings, went to war with them, that THEY should
become the ultimate police force of biological evolution, stopping it every 50 0000 years, so as to preserve themselves.
After a few billion years, their own evolution was way over there head.
And two enormous questions still linger in my head. The first is about where the Reapers were residing... Are there any left there? As they left, did
they leave a Sovereign type member behind for safe guarding?
The second question is; What about OTHER galaxies? Were they also subjected to the Reapers?
With Shepard apparently being influenced by the Reapers, if ever so slightly at first, from the start of ME3, it would have been nice to
"participate" in the elaboration of the finale assault on the Reapers battle plan, influencing to have your views taken into consideration, based on
your character's experience.
Despite my not quite liking the ending, the Mass Effect series is THE game I've been expecting all my life. Even it's little bugs, and elevator
never-ending rides do not lower my liking this game.
It's definitely flying very high above every other games I've played, and I began with that old game where you controlled a white bar to block and
throw back a white square past the other white bar...
And it'll hold the line for a while...
