You know I can't really remember BG2's expansion ending. I vaguely remember the Jon Irenicus from BG2 proper end. Of course I usually never played BG2 through to the end when I played it. Have more half-started campaigns in the IE engine than I think any other games I played...lol.

Most of the time and end is an end; there are a few that disappoint me but if the game is fun I'll keep playing it. I hated Secret of Mana's ending with a passion (easily one of the top worst game endings - at least the US English Translation it came out with - I've ever played) and yet I kept playing the game because it was fun (then ChronoTrigger came out and I never bothered with Secret of Mana again).

I'll be interested to see how I feel finishing ME3 (so far I'm not as fond of ME3's gameplay as I was about ME1 and 2).

BG2's ending is simply you kill Irenicus and that's it.

TOB's ending is you kill that wannabe goddess (one of BIO's two worst bosses ever). That's it.. Oops, oh yea, you can be good/evil god or stay mortal. L0L DEEP AND SPECIAL LOL

Not trying to turn attention to other things, are they? :p

Kind of an unceremonious end to DA2, and about as close to an admission of ****ing up I've yet seen from Bioware. Looks like humble pie's on the menu at Koutouki this week. :p

The sad part is the explanations in that image aren't all that far off from what you get in game...

You have to fight the big bad end boss who wants to take all the power and become the next Deity...if you beat her you can take her power instead and become a deity, or you can stay on Faerun. Either way determines what happens between you and your Love Interest/significant other. If you stay it typically has some sort of happily ever after, if you leave something else. Also, if I remember correctly it details what happens to each of your other companiosn that traveled with you.

So...overall...much more in depth and much more resolving on your situation and the rest of your companions that travelled with you than ME3 or most other games.

No Red light, Green Light in that ending.

You should have put spoilers on the LotR parody of the game...

If that's your example of 'deep'... you lose. That's shallow and simplistic.

It's also a pretty straight confirmation of DA3.

Not like the end of DA2 wasn't a pretty straight confirmation of DA3....

Yet another new character. After DA2 and ME3 no way would I believe a word of whatever bull**** they try to spin.

Did anyone actually want to play as Hawke again?

In hindsight, I found DA2 to be the better game than ME3 overall, mostly due to the fact that it actually felt like an RPG, while ME3 was the worst in the series when it comes to Role-Playing. And plot holes. It shows that a hack like Mac Walters cannot reach the expertise and skill of the mighty David Gaider.

Either way, open-world + possible Frostbite 2 engine should be good. If they skip the stupid marketing videos and stop putting cameos (journalists, game sluts etc.) into their games, people just might take them seriously again. Heck, could even threaten the TES series in terms of sales.

Obligatory:

ME1 > ME2 > ME3
DA2 > DA:O

You know, I don't agree with your ranking (especially in regards to the DA's) BUT...something about the way you phrase it and say it simply just make me want to say...sometimes I just love your posts. Absolutely Ace in your statement.
