The real importance of Mass Effect 3 was not how your choices affected the ending, but how they affected you and the game.

One of the best examples is how if you did what I did, Tali, Mordin and Wrex have no part in the ending, and that had more of an effect on me than anything else .

I was okay with the ending because it stayed true to Mass Effect's themes of choice and sacrifice. You chose the fate of the galaxy and sacrificed something to attain it. With the free Extended Cut, you can see how your choice affected everyone and get closure with some familiar faces. I don't have any complaints.

My friend agrees with you and I can see your point. But I still think it would have been good another kind of ending that would allow you "end things right", even if it's just avaliable after a lot of effort and time and DLC's whatsoever. Still, I think the hate the ending gets is way too much.
#13 to #3 - anon (06/17/2014) [-]
tbh after thinking about it enough i think i got enough closure, you don't see the immediate effects of your decisions. But I sorta like that it is up to your imagination. I can imagine what would be the aftermath given the decisions i made in that game.
#15 to #13 - anon (06/17/2014) [-]
"you don't see the immediate effects of your decisions"

The hardest choices you're forced to make have pretty immediate effects.

(actual spoiler) On my first playthrough I made the mistake of choosing Legion over Tali on Rannoch, which ended with Tali committing suicide moments later. And then on Tuchanka I refused to allow Mordin to fix the sabotaged tower prior to releasing the cure for the genophage, so I ended up shooting him.

i would get fat too if i wouldn't be in mass effect 4. i cant even imagine it without him/her
User avatar #6 to #2 - waffies ONLINE (06/17/2014) [-]
I cant imagine why they'd call it 4 if it wasnt having shepard :/
#12 to #6 - anon (06/17/2014) [-]
Mass Effect 4 is just a working title, I quite certain they are going to call it something else. However, it might be fine that the next Mass Effect is not centered around Shepard and the Normandy crew - the trilogy was amazing and Shepard's perspective was a great way to experience the Mass Effect universe, but the great thing is that the universe they have created is strong enough to stand on its own and to some extent it could be said that sticking to Shepard's story and perspective would limit what one could actually gain from the setting to some extent. Take the books, for example: Mass Effect: Revelation, Mass Effect: Ascension and Mass Effect: Deception take place in between the events of the trilogy and are narrated through the perspective of David Anderson and Kahlee Sanders among others and works very well, actually, and you get to experience parts of the universe you might not be able to with Shepard and the Normandy crew.

Mass Effect: Electric Boogaloo?
User avatar #22 to #12 - brewswillis (06/17/2014) [-]
i agree whole heartedly, anon. still gonna miss shepard though.
also: there are mass effect books?
User avatar #34 to #22 - nimblewalrus (06/17/2014) [-]
Indeed, there are books. The first one takes place before ME1, when Anderson is in consideration as the first human Spectre. The second takes place a little after 1. Those two are pretty good. The others you can skip.
User avatar #42 to #34 - lollab (06/17/2014) [-]
Yea the fourth one contained some errors in lore that seriously bugged me. As a very biased fanboy I still believe it was worth the read. Why didn't you like the third one though? I think it was equally as good as the first two in the series.
#33 to #22 - anon (06/17/2014) [-]
Yeah, they're written by Drew Karpyshyn, one of the main writers for Mass Effect 1 and 2. ME: Revelation, ME: Ascension and ME: Retribution are pretty damn good, but Mass Effect: Deception is allegedly seriously bad - I've never read it but it is written by William C. Dietz and fans collectively wrote a 10 page letter, describing to BioWare how bad it was, as far as I hear.
This is taken from the Mass Effect Wiki:
"Following fan concerns about Deception's numerous errors, BioWare and Del Rey Books apologized and announced that changes would be made to future editions of the novel."
I've read both Revelation and Ascension and I really think they're good; they tie in very well with the universe and the established premises and you learn a lot new, too, and Drew is a great writer.

why do they call star wars star wars when luke isn't in it?
User avatar #8 to #7 - waffies ONLINE (06/17/2014) [-]
Fair point. But mass effect is known as Shepard's legacy right now its a story about him/her, that's the perspective you get from it, and why people played it (or at least why my friends and i did). With star wars, i always watched it for the world it was set it,

I say this alot but....
Wouldn't it be awesome if Mass Effect 4 was set in a dystopian future where Shepard's ME 3 ending choices turn out bad somehow and they send a Squad mate like Old Garrus, Jack or Kaidan Kaidan gets a big lumberjack beard. back in time to save both Virmire survivors, defeat the reapers in a different way somehow.
It would be a cool way to retcon the ending.
TL;DR Mass effect 4 should have X-men Days of Future Past's plot.

back in time sounds dumb as ****
User avatar #24 to #10 - ashedust (06/17/2014) [-]
I wouldn't put it past EA, however that probably will not be the case.

I would be willing to put money on a game that revolves around the future as humans are rediscovering how to travel like they did with the Mass Effect. They're going to find the other races in a similar situation. But there are going to be factions that are for or against reconnecting the Mass Effect relays. You are hired/commissioned/ordered to investigate some strange happenings in both sides by a neutral third party. Along the way you'll probably meet companions from both sides of the issue and get the chance to make your own choice about it and side with one of the sides.

Can't wait to see what the next Mass Effect brings to the table
User avatar #36 to #35 - manofiron (06/17/2014) [-]
All I know, is that I definitely won't be pre-ordering the next one.
User avatar #38 to #36 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/17/2014) [-]
I will! Why wouldn't you? They're going for ******* exploration and immersive universe instead of spending so much time on action and FPS
User avatar #48 to #38 - rattman (06/17/2014) [-]
Is it really based on exploration?
User avatar #50 to #48 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/17/2014) [-]
That's what Bioware has said
User avatar #40 to #38 - manofiron (06/17/2014) [-]
Don't get me wrong. I love the ME series. Ever since I first read ME: Revelation, before the first game even came out. I've poured over 1,000 hours into the three games, and I don't regret any of it. It's just that the ending of ME3 was insulting to me, as a gamer, and as an avid ME fan.
User avatar #45 to #40 - lollab (06/17/2014) [-]
Ditto, the ending was a fiasco. Even though my inner ME fan is bursting with excitement I am still going to approach the fourth installment with cautious anticipation. I'll wait for a few reviews by sources that I trust and then make a decision to either purchase or pass.
User avatar #43 to #40 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/17/2014) [-]
You can't fault an entire series for the (horrendous) ending of one of the games. You gotta realize that it happened because EA was pressuring Bioware to hit the release date, and this new Mass Effect is a clean slate to try and make a better game in an already good universe
User avatar #47 to #43 - manofiron (06/17/2014) [-]
As lollab said, the next installment in the ME franchise will not be a day one purchase for me. I'll wait a while, and look at reviews before I make a decision. Bioware is going to have to work a little harder for my money this time around. I have a sort of kuudere relationship with the ME series now.
User avatar #49 to #47 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/17/2014) [-]
I'm going to buy it because I just love the universe too damn much. Not even the ****** ending of ME3 can kill my love for Mass Effect, and I just really love that they're going for a more exploration based kinda thing, god I can't wait
User avatar #51 to #49 - manofiron (06/17/2014) [-]
And I agree with you. I'll most likely end up getting the next ME game anyway, just for the fact that it's part of the ME universe that I've been such a huge fan of for years.
User avatar #52 to #51 - Kairyuka ONLINE (06/17/2014) [-]
Yeah. EA is **** but I still have strong faith in Bioware!
User avatar #46 to #43 - manofiron (06/17/2014) [-]
I'm not faulting the entire series. I'm simply saying that they lost my trust with ME3, and I won't be pre-ordering future games.
User avatar #39 to #38 - manofiron (06/17/2014) [-]
I learned my lesson after ME3. Knowing what I know about the game now, would I have spent as much as I did buying it? No.

It's like Old Shep, the Reapers are still alive in his mind and he flexes his arm to bring out his Omni-tool. PTSD from aliens, he killed everyone on that train.
