After finishing the game I feels like I’m obligated to write an update on my blog to celebrate the completion of finally ending the game franchise. I must give it to them, the developer as they have smartly shaped the presentation of the game and attention to details is incredible. A nicely crafted piece of entertainment.
So far I have no qualms in overall but the ending is a bit stark with only 3 viable options and are almost the same. Deep down I don’t want the mass relays to be destroyed because space exploration will be set back another few thousand years and technological advancement will be dampen after this reaper war. I wanted the ending to be a bit nicer so civilization will thrive again without the reaper interfering with the authoritative ways of how they handle the cycle. Anyway, I’m in good standing with the endings from Bioware.
The online world have been set ablaze due to the DLC controversy and the limited selection of dialogues in the final moments in the game coupled with similar endings. From what I had read so far gamers alike want more endings that is a bit brighter compare to the choices it comes with Mass Effect 3. According to my early deduction I think that people doesn’t want to feels that all their efforts from the first game until now be wasted and powerless to change the ultimate fate of the galaxy. Moreover, the developers may be out of time to create a complete game or generally people are too inclined with the good vs evil theme and deeply wanted more apart from a bittersweet endings.
I’m can’t help but see a connection on how this and all other popular games titles would affect the Z Generation in the future. As in, how this would be brought into our adult life. I’ve read and see people currently in their 40′s who are die hard Star War fans. As I have observed, the 70′s and 80′s from the Y Generation they’ve Star Wars and Star Trek to be amazed about on screen. However, in this current generation we have amazing video games like Mass Effect, Halo, Assassin Creed and Dead Space to craved and be remembered for. It’s just an observation I have noted in our human culture.
It will be awesome to tell my kids about my pastime and fictional heroes I respected while I was growing up. That, my friend, would be a goal I wanted to achieve.
One more thing. If you’ve watched TTGL (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann) then you can see the relation with Mass Effect as it have a similar premises too. You know, the spiral being who suppress organic life form. Due to this connection someone made a funny smashed up of the two with Japanese voice over in TTGL finals moments. Awesome shit!
Somehow with the Japanese voiced in it looks more like power rangers XD
