    Is this the first time you've beaten it? Did you download the "additional" ending DLC BioWare offered for free?

    I have yet to play it. From what I remember after the game came out, it was the way the game supposedly ended before. From what others were saying on the net, the ending left the game open for a 4th game to be released although ME3 was supposed to be the final game in the saga. Bioware put out free DLC for 3 elongated endings to help bring closure to it.

    Here is an article if you want to read about it:

    ^^ Pretty much, this. I suspect the OP is playing the extended DLC endings, hence why he doesn't understand the frustration that came with the original endings. The new endings do a nice job of closing the series out imo.

    Well, not EVERYONE hated the original ending. I thought it was mediocre; I wasn't up-in-arms like a lot of die-hard ME fans were. The extended ending was refreshing, though. I did my Insanity run after they released it, so I got to experience both the old ending and the new one. The old one just let too many questions unanswered that the new one kindly answered for us.

    Yeah i just watched the extended ending. It is indeed better and answers a few questions but honestly the original ending wasnt so bad for people to rage like that after watching both endings i think the original ending was okay and the extended cut was better. Going to download this before starting insanity.

    people cried because they're self entitled babies.... the folks who made the ME series have every right to end their shit any way they see fit... the ending was a perfect way to end a wonderful trilogy

    I haven't played it yet but Ps360 filled me in a while ago without using spoilers......The ending of Mass Effect 3 angered long time fans of the game because the ending was a WTF moment & didn't line up very well with what the 3 games had led players to think would happen. Ps360 explained it better but you get the point.

    Yea people were Angry as hell over the ending lol! When I beat 3 I found the ending completely forgetable. Im having trouble thinking of it now.I wasnt upset about it though. Its very hard to end such an epic series but man they didnt even try thats just my opinion. Perhaps if they didnt have the B.S. online shit they would have had the resources to attempt a Blockbuster ending. Either way its Devs choice to do what they like with the game and fans choice to be outraged about everthing that is not exactly what they want.

    Because it's the cool thing to do. Too many hipsters jumped on the hate train. Or, people didn't put in a little afterthought and give their own meaning to the events.
