Fans compile logical breakdown of Mass Effect 3 ending

Sick of hearing about Mass Effect 3's ending yet? If you're still furious over what went down, then you might find your opinion satisfactorily reaffirmed by this -- a logical breakdown of why Mass Effect 3's ending makes no sense

This weighty tome, which is still being edited, compiles all the arguments against BioWare's narrative decisions. It's only concerned with the writing of the ending, not with the impact of player choices or the accusations that fans were lied to. It seeks to demonstrate why the plot simply does not work. 

There's a heck of a lot to it, and should provide some intense reading for those still highly invested in the drama. Whether you dug the ending or not, it's amazing how much work, debate, and emotion it's inspired. I mean that quite sincerely. 

Videogames, indeed. Videogames.

[Thanks, Ciel!]
