Games As I made very clear in my thorough review of Mass Effect 2, I'm a huge BioWare fan. This relationship got very, very cloudy when BioWare released Dragon Age II, a rush job with no story and atrocious gameplay. Mass Effect 3 looked like redemption - until I hit the terrible, terrible ending. The criticism of the ending has been so immense and consistent, BioWare is contemplating changing it. Of course, this story is riddled with spoilers, so be warned.

but "T3h internets" are blowing this whole ending thing WAY out of proportion.

Definitely. I wasn't surprised by the ending myself. I didn't really had huge expectations for it, and I knew as I was about to reach it that it had to quickly wrap up defeating the reapers (which quite obviously was going to involve "magic" at that point) + explaining "everything". So it was bound to do a quick, half assed job of either thing. I guess I'm used to this kind of ending.

And people complaining about plot holes make me smile, because mass effect has been a long series of plot holes from the start (example: what did saren need the conduit for in the first game?).

ME was never really about having a robust story, merely an engaging one.
