    The reapers attacked earth first because if we spread the secrets of hep jazz to the rest of the galaxy the reapers stand no chance.

    Final battle is a battle of the bands vs. harbinger. Liara's on sax, Garrus on trumpet, Legion on keyboard, Tali's playing drums. Shep is lead vocals of course.

    History is an account, mostly false, of events, mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers, mostly knaves, and soldiers, mostly fools.

    I mean, I don't agree with anything you said and I think it's absolutely pointless to try to argue with you about this, so I won't.

    I actually consider ME3 worse than BSG because the writing on the wall that BSG was going to end really badly and stupidly was pretty obvious.

    like, for me, the wheels on BSG fell off right at the point when (I guess spoilers if you haven't watched BSG)
    Spoiler:

    That was the exact point where I realized "The writers don't know what they are doing and are making this shit up as they go with no real planning."

    For BSG, that moment was in the beginning of the third season.

    So I saw the horse-shit ending coming and was less disappointed by it.

    ME3's ending is worse because I had no such "Well this is obviously going to go south" inklings until the absolute very last ten minutes or so of the game and then I was like

    ME's timeline is not particularly dense, duder.

    It's not Star Wars, where you can just pick any point before the game's events and just have it be more or less like the events of the first game.

    I guess you could set it in the two year gap between 1 and 2, or do a prequel series to 1 entirely

    in the like, 20 or 30 year span between discovery of the Mass Relays and ME1?

    yeah, that's great

    I think everyone who has beaten the game can agree the ending is polarizing.

    It is a very comprehensive ending that does STUFF.

    As a result, people tend to feel very strongly about the stuff it does.

    From my end, it's why I had no interest in watching the Caprica TV show

    it was a BSG prequel

    I know how BSG ended, I know how BSG played out

    which means a prequel series to that, ultimately just leads into that shit.

    So I didn't care to watch it.

    ME3's ending has, retroactively, killed my interest in replaying ME1 or ME2 and killed any interest I have in side-stories or new adventures in that universe, like ME: Infiltrator

    because I know how it inevitably ends, how I can't do anything to change that, and it makes all the rest of it feel pointless

    Multiplayer is still fun though if I focus on the gameplay and guns and classes and ignore everything lore related
