Mass Effect 3 (3rd Person Action RPG PC Game 2012)

So this game was supposed to be the end-all-be-all of the year. Its 2 predecessors were absolutely sick, so Bioware had a lot to live up to. Did they? Yes, but only up until the last 15 minutes.

If you played through the first and second games you know how everything is. Fun shooting, lots of story, and more and more story. All of this was the same so not much changed there. The ending battle really got your blood pumping...super exciting just like a movie and/or a Modern Warfare game. But then you got to the end.

People were already complaining about the ending before I even was half through, so I skillfully ignored all of those articles and postings and trudged on. When I got to the ending I thought the last decision would actually be the first part of a few more, but when the credits started rolling I finally realized what everyone else was referring to. What a crap ending. Nothing was explained, no prior choices made a difference, and the last choice was worthless. It blew; and as a player you just felt robbed considering how fun the first 2 games/endings were.

Supposedly the devs are making a new ending, but we'll see if that happens or not. I don't think I've ever seen any game company really give a shit after they've made their money. But even with the shit ending, the rest of the game was great. Sad to see the series end.
