The Firefly of our generation

I will keep it short and to the point. Alot of gaming websites have been praising ME3 for its godlike presentation and execution. Now while I agree with them to a point, Bioware has really dropped the ball on the games closing scenes. I won't go into details because its been said over and over. What I will say is that the ending of this game will leave you with a feeling of emptiness (especially if you are playing with a Shep way back from ME1). Alot of the connection you have as a fan literally gets spat back in your face in the games closing segments. I haven't felt like this since Firefly was cancelled so many years ago. All I could think about was just how successful of an IP it could have been had Fox not devoured the opportunity for it to grow. The same can be said about ME. The ending you are presented with will leave you feeling like the series was brutally murdered before your eyes. Everything you know and loved about the saga taken and washed down the drain in a shoddy attempt to create a memorable ending that people will "talk about for years". sure, people will talk about it for years but it will be remembered as one of the most epic failures of our time. If that is what Bioware wanted, more power to them. But that is the reality of the situation.
