Very much seconded. One of the main reasons people have a problem with very end of the game is that it only resolves the plot, doing very little to provide closure with the characters you've really gotten fond of over the series, and which the entire game did an excellent job of fostering right up until that ending point. Many found that unforgivable, I for one don't think it invalidates the excellent job the series, and the third game did with the characters up until that last hour or so. It's more about the journey than the ending and all that.small said:the citadel DLC. i HIGHLY recommend it if you are even remotely attached to the charactersNot The Bees said:My husband played the first two before we had met, and I got sucked into the third one after we had met and started dating. So I didn't even know all the characters or his Shepard. And yet... I cried like a baby. And I really get into my fiction as well. I'd suggest getting the DLC... um, I can't remember the name of it, but it included a party... anyway, it was really sweet and I really enjoyed it, and it was a lot of fun and it kind of takes a bit of the emotional sting out of the end of the game. At least it did for me.
as for your question.. i dont normally cry with games but yeah there is one part before the ending where you share moments with people, and right at the end when you do as well. that had me bawling
And then, later, the Citadel DLC came out, and it basically made up for most of that as far as I'm concerned. It takes place before the end-of-game mission sequence, Shepard can go and have one-on-one downtime with all the squadmates from the series that are still around, there's a fun story thing going on, and then there's a party at the end where everyone chats and dances and gets a little tipsy, and the character writing is so good and strong it pretty much makes up for them losing sight of that in the original ending.
And yeah, there will be tears and heroic sacrifice and tense moments, but you come out of it feeling kind of good, because it really is a reflection of how much they make these characters mean.
Man, I need to play this again...
