I don't think I've commented on Mass Effect 3's endings and such here on ActionTrip, so I'll start by saying I never understood what everyone was so angry about in the first place and what everyone expected.

Were the endings great? No, of course not. Have I seen far worse? Sure have. Is BioWare the first developer to state a game has several endings where really it's just a slightly altered cutscene here and there over one main ending? Nope, nothing new.

The Mass Effect franchise gave me a solid 150 hour experience, give or take, per playthrough with a great interactive story despite it's many inconsistencies. I could take my Shepard and my experiences into each game and have in-game characters and events be slightly changed or commented on which is something no game has done before to my knoweldge, making for an even more unique experience.

And when Mass Effect 3 ended, cold hard reality hits: No matter how hard you struggle against impossible odds, the choices before you may not be the ones you want, bad things happen to good people, and not everything works out how you want. That's the reality of life.

The Extended Cut, with the exception of Hackett telling everyone to flee, added nothing that wasn't implied in the retail endings and while I have no issue with the content being released it's really unnecessary.

As for the indoctrination theory, the second I saw it I thought it was a fun theory but no more than that, and people are simply trying to rationalize things that aren't there.

Again, I really don't know what people were expecting from the ending and why everything always has to be so happy-cheery and wrapped up to a T with every loose end looked after.
