I don't mind the dying, I think it's fine that Shepard would sacrifice himself to save a galaxy. The ending is bad because it throws away the entire ethos that the series was built on; consequences. In all three games your actions affect the story either immediately or later down the line. The final scene is not effected by this however; no matter what choices you made, who is dead or alive, who is your friend or enemy, the ending is the same for every single Shepard. The storytelling method all the fans played and love throughout the trilogy is discarded when it means the most.

I don't agree, i believe this is just a hasty supposition due to similar ending movies. The ending cinematics were one like another, sure, that was botched, but the choice you make severely affects the galaxy as the I.V said.

Plus it also destoryed the hope of any more stories/games from that universe with the mass effect relays being destroyed. It was so disappointing. I didn't mind the dying, just the way they chose to handle it. Shepard does "live" it some endings, but nothing satisfactory. I just wanted more of a choice. All the endings were the damn same

the ending is meant to show that there are no real happy endings in a war. some times being prepared isn't enough to win and even if you've won it can still feel like you've lost. from a storytelling perspective its portrays a sad but accurate interpretation of war.

All those thousands of soldiers stuck in Sol where they will starve to death with Earth. Earth, after the Reaper attack, just won't be able to cope with all those hungry beings.

The turians and quarians will die because of a lack of proper food.

The normandy is stuck in noman's land...

The Mass relays affect traveling to far away nebulas around the galaxy, but a regular FTL drive would take anyone from the Sol system to as far as Annos Basin or even the Serpent Nebula, if given the proper amount of time. But like the person below me said, synthesis would probably eliminate the need for food.

It's drive core is meant for much larger ships but all of its power and energy is put toward the stealth drive. It really boils down to how much eezo each fleet can spare to send out others to different nebulas.

Also, if you think about it, Earth isn't home to just Humans. There are other species that live there. Our solar system is probably perfect for each race, depending on how the climate should be. But yeah, it'd take a while :\

But the planets are habitable by some. Humans aren't the only species to live on Earth before the invasion, either. Just like how Thessia has species other than Asari living on it. There are almost none, but there are some. The worlds in the Sol system, all 8 planets and Pluto, are able to be inhabited, especially if we have colonies on these worlds, like Luna and Mars, and probably some of Jupiter's moons.

Most of the fleets lost a lot of soldiers during the invasion and during the final battle. Not to mention Earth lost 90% of it's population. The fleets didn't bring ALL of their species, just some of their warriors. The most you can have are 10,000 (probably a lot lower) people, and most die. The remaining can take up what the people who were harvested on Earth left behind, and have room for a small species.

why is editing a picture a bad thing, exactly? I mean, yeah, it'd be nice to see a game model version of her face, but that's enough. People constantly whined about wanting to see her face, and they finally get it, and then get mad it's a photoshop? really?

day one dlc was meant for special edition only, but since so much **** was leaked and community complained so much they had to make it available to everyone.

and I still believe in reaper theory.

It's basically a slap in the face to the fans, and shouts the message that Bioware doesn't care about it's fans to even bother to photoshop a proper picture of Tali's face.

Fans wanted to see a genuine look of her face, not a 30 second photoshop of some random model. Plus she's a Quarian, not a human. It shows that Bioware didn't bother to put any effort into a character we've enjoyed since the first Mass Effect game.

As for the DLC, the day one DLC was also a slap in the face, because people have proven that they just took out a chunk of the game and slapped a 10 dollar price tag on it and called it DLC. Basically, you are paying an extra 10 dollars because Bioware got greedy.

It was only fair that while everyone was sacrificing their lives for shepperd he'd do the same to create peace.

I did miss miranda showing up and saying something like "you think id let you do this alone"?

i understood the ending, and the sadness i felt was justified, but what i did not like was the way they did it. they made it in such a way that was so unbelivebly anticlimactic, in the sense that all your hard work to build the character, and the choices you made never really mattered at all.

If you think about it, your choices did affect the ending drastically. If Wrex died on Virmire, the negotiations would be extremely difficult between the Turians and Krogan. That would probably result in having less war assets than you would have if Wrex was spared. The same goes for Mordin, if he died on the Collector base "someone else would've gotten it wrong". If Legion died, there'd be no way to secure BOTH the Quarians and the Geth in the final battle, which would DRASTICALLY reduce your war assets, which would result in a completely different ending. Shepard's ending is the same, all the way through. No matter what. But if you don't think so self-centeredly and think about the rest of the galaxy, the choices you make completely affect how the game ends, and if you have proper closure or if everyone dies.

It grants closure to some, especially me, that Mass Effect won't pull a Halo and make a 4th one. It'll be done and over with right here, right now, with Mass Effect 3. It came full circle. He became a Spectre at the Citadel, he stopped the Reapers at the Citadel, he saves the Galaxy at the Citadel, and will never return, because he died. It's closure to me.

I thought the ending was ok... even if it did push me over the edge a bit... it still left ALOT unexplained and there really is no closure and there's a serious lack of interaction romantic wise... ESPECIALLY if you choose to sacrifice yourself for synthesis ( the middle choice ) I would prefer if Bioware gave us the possibility to finish the game as we wanted ( like a happy ending where you live after and get closure )

ESPECIALLY if you choose to sacrifice yourself for synthesis ( the middle choice ) I would prefer if Bioware gave us the possibility to finish the game as we wanted ( like a happy ending where you live after and get closure )

but that's the thing, mass effect is both a happy ending and a tragedy. But also, there is a way to make your shepard survive...

true,but since I chose tali in my game.. even in Mass Effect 1 where you couldn't have tali I still wanted her so I had NO romance until Mass effect 2 just so I could get Tali...   
   
and in Mass Effect 3 there's just not enough convo between them... it's a bit annoying and at the end you just get the feeling like you died and now what? what's gonna happen with tali...what happened to the others?  10 thousand questions appear at the end..   
   
It may be unrealistic but I'd prefer a happy ending...just cause I like happy endings :)   
   
and tali ofc :P

two options: either tali died in space, because her ship crashed, or she stayed on earth.

Either way, tali never sees her home planet ever again, like the other teammates. Sorry dude, that's the price for saving the galaxy.

Tali doesn't die.. if you don't take her on your final mission and you choose the middle option(synthesis) then you can clearly see Joker, EDI and TALI and some others getting off the crashed of the normandy on some planet

Does tali live if you destroy the reapers? I saw Garrus get off but no tali. O_o;

So if they don't step off the ship they are dead...?

In that case, I'll replay it for the sole sake of saving Tali. She deserves that beach front home.

that's excatly what guided me after I figured there's no way I could have a happy ending

I don't know excatly who lives or dies... that's part of the reason why everyone is so upset at Bioware... they gave us NO closure whatsoever, maybe they'll close it up in DLC's...maybe they'll simply change ending all togather... we'll see

how could they close that up with dlc, seriously. they might get you to play as the other characters, but that would not be the same

apparently now it's official, EA said they would offer alternate endings with DLC's

Which prolly means you'll just get to see what happens with other characters AFTER you sacrifice yourself for the galaxy... we'll see :(

agreed. also, i was femshep, romanced traynor, and the look on her face as she looked up at the sky past joker and edi was really bittersweet, added a really nice note to it all
