Okay now you guys are really starting to scare me. Hold me Garrus!

Yup, that seems about right. Even the bathtub full of tears.

There's not enough icecream in the world to forget those last 5 minutes. Oh, why didn't I listen to the internet and just alt-f4'd out before the elevator?

gah! now i dont want to play it anymore and just leave the game where it is :D

hmm. You have some, uh, stains on your pillow there....

YOU FOOL! YOU BLEW IT ALL! YOU BLEW IT ALL TO HELL!

We warned you, but... you didn't listen... YOU DIDN'T LIS-THEE-HEEEEN!

Also, if I had spare money during last week, I would've gained at least 10 pounds from the potential chocolate I'd have to eat to forget about the endings.

just finished last night, then sat there for three hours staring at the screen wondering why...
WHY!?!?!?

I could write a novel on the hurt, but this comic sums it up perfectly, thanks guys!

I'm going to paste this comic on the back of my Mass effect copy. With a warning which states "If you would like to avoid these symptoms, Alt + F4 when shepard gets on the elevator"

Okay, regardless of everything, when Erin from Critical Miss is clearly against the ending of ME3, than any and all other arguements are void.

Dat Garrus body pillow...do want!

Yah the ending was pretty shit. But here something that will at least make it interesting if true. http://social.bioware.com/forums/forum/1/topic/355/index/9727423/1

Basically it states that the entire part with the citadel was an indoctrination test set by the reapers in Sheppard's death coma, its an interesting read the theirs allot of evidence to support it.

Still pisses me off though cause that means it's incomplete and they will charge us for the ending. Not cool man, not cool.

Exactly how I felt. Crushed.

Never thought a damn videogame could make me feel so down in the dumps - especially my freakin favorite series of all time.

Very funny.

I do hope people will come into the acceptance stage soon though. I loved the endings and I've let a few people see why and some agreed, but I'm not gonna do that anymore.

I just hope Bioware comes with some kind of statement explaining the general themes of the endings to help people make sense of them.

Our relationship with most developers has been abusive for many years. I thought BioWare was different. After DA2 I thought "They hit me, but only because they love me". After KOTOR becoming an MMO I thought "I can change them, I know they still love me". But now...now I'm done blaming the black eyes on walking into a door knob. Enough is enough.

/keeping it classy

Huh, it's like Dragon Age 2 all over again. Well, for me. That's more or less what I did.

The idea of someone crying in a bathtub eating ice cream with the shower running on them is infinitely funny to me.

It's not that people don't understand the endings. It's that the endings are presented in such a horrible way. I mean, we get to the climax, the game starts slowing down as Anderson tells you how proud he is, the pacing just makes the game feel over...and then the ending is snatched away so that we can talk to possibly the most important character of the series who was never even hinted at before. This great, important character only being introduced in the last 10 minutes of a 3 game series doesn't feel like a cop out? Like Deus Ex Machina?

Its worse than DA2. Atleast DA2 game some information on what happened afterwards.

ME3 has single line "Shepard is legend". Yeah. Ok.

OT: Me, I am steady on the acceptance by now. And by that I mean I dont care if world ends in 2012. In fact I'm kinda hoping it does.

Not to mention the 3 choices are copies of the original Deus Ex' endings. Like Bioware thought noone'd notice.

I'm more or less alternating between stage1 and 2 right now. I was never invested enough in the series to go to 3 & beyond ;)

The Endingtron 3000 from Deus Ex: HR strikes again.
Makes you wonder if Bioware hired another studio to make the ending for them, like Eidos did with the boss battles. Would explain their disconnection from the rest of the game, at least.

You mean ME3 has even less than "Hawke and friends ran away"?

Holy fuck that's bad.

The Catalyst was introduced way in the beginning of the game.

Bang on, guys. I am so loving you right now.

It's not gay if it's with a Turian.

This, exactly this!

My thoughts during the Mass Effect 3 ending went like "Ok, at least it's not buttons" quickly followed by "I wonder if we're gonna find out Bioware outsourced the ending".

At least the holo kid didn't say anything about how it's not the end of the world, but you can see it from there...

I guess I've played too much DX:HR ;)

The idea of the catalyst being the final component to what we thought was a superweapon was introduced at the beginning of the game. The idea that it was an AI controlling the Reapers (or that such a being even existed) was never foreshadowed at all.

Not....quite my reaction......

I will say that I recently realized that the ending is mostly in line with the endings of the other games. We just accepted them and thought they were cool because we thought each game was leading to an epic conclusion in the third installment.

And we were wrong.

:(

Except DA2 didn't have two prior installments filled with loved characters and looming mystery building it up.

Yeah. Theres a reason why Bioware social is in pretty nasty shape right now. The logical conclusion to this is that DA3s ending will be black screen & credits after halfway through last boss.

DA2 had its problems, don't get me wrong, but I didn't think the story or the ending was one of them. I always thought of the battle at the mages guild against that crazy lady with the sword as the ending. What happened to Hawke afterwards was more of an epilogue to me.

Pretty much exactly my feelings.

But hey what do we really expect?
Bioware has become another output engine for EA to try and milk another cash cow to death.

FUCK YOU EA FUCK YOU AND BURN IN HELL.
There I said it I feel better.

The comic is spot on. I think I have hit the acceptance stage myself... though there is still a hint of depression :(

yeeeaaaaah to be fair, in hindsight, i found the 'paragon' ending a little more appropriate than the others, but yeah, still total BS

I SWEAR TO GOD IF GARRUS DIES BIOWARE IS DEAD TO ME.

I fucking love that guy.
