The ME3 debacle and BioWare fan loyalty...

This is why I don't plan on playing ME3 until there is a Game of the year Edition. The whole you can't get the best ending unless you play 4 player co-op and buy the DLC is just stupid beyond measure.

Like, for me Quest for Glory 3 takes the cake as worst ending ever. Bet no one knows what the hell i'm talking about.
That is because QfG3 was a filler game, the original outline was themed around the four seasons, to take place in Spielburg, Shapeir, Mordavia, and Silmaria. They just decided, for whatever reason, that they needed more of a bridge between Shapeir and Mordavia. Which did strain the whole narrative a bit, using Ad Avis' "death" as the catalyst for the demons coming, when, well... you know.

But back to BioWare. It isn't that it was the worst ending ever, it's that it was the worst ending ever to be attached to a game that comes so close to being perfect. It's the quality of the ending *in contrast* to the quality of the rest of the trilogy that makes it so jarring. And, if you are someone who cares about the destination, at all, it really does destroy most of the incentive to repeat the journey, which isn't a great idea in a franchise where the greatest strength is replayability.

Hey man, whatever works. On a serious note though, a lot of very compelling evidence has been found, within ME3, for the theory that the current ending is actually a giant fake-out, and the real thing will come through DLC. A theory which, in my opinion, is a lot more consistent with the quality of the rest of the game than is taking the current ending at face value.

At the moment, there is no "best" ending. Just defeat with three different color palettes. You'll see what I mean when you get there, though if you wait for a GotY, my suspicion is there will be a different ending waiting for you than we are getting.
True mastery is to feel the flames of your passion, to dance with the fire, to live in it, to fully embrace the primal forces of destruction and creation, and not be burned to a cinder, to survive and prosper because you loved the flame, used the flame, but did not allow yourself to be consumed by it; this is greatness; this is Sith.

can we not talk about game endings. Or plot's of game's not all of us have finished? I just got ME3 yesterday. Please keep this stuff to yourself. It's like throwing a surprise party for someone and right before they walk in, tell them there's a surprise party being thrown for them. so please. **** about plot, endings. of any kind. I don't want to know that you thought it was bad, I don't want to know that you thiought it was good. just don't, f'ing as you're a gamer. this is like rule number 1.

and another thing, how does mass effect have anything at all to do with Star Wars? guh.... sssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

This is quite simply,untrue. It's possible to get the "best" ending without it, even easier to get with a new game + . Of course I guess it depends on what you think the "best" ending is.

I really don't mean any offense here, but you seriously came into this thread with the title it has and expected nothing about the plot,ending,likes/dislikes to be in it?You are either the most trusting,naive person alive or you just feel like complaining.

Right now, with the numbers available, roughly 90% of all people who have posted about this have expressed extreme discontent with the ending. If BW wants to set up a valid (as opposed to yours) numbers argument about this they need to set up a poll and encourage everyone who bought ME3 to vote.
If you "studied stats", you realize people are much more likely to voice complaints. How many "letters to the editor" are written with "everything's good, keep up the good work". You receive a disproportionately larger amount of negative feedback than praise.
