2. Shepard is Meant to Die and Will Not Outlive the Apocalypse.
Pause for a second and read that again for good measure. No one likes to see their hero go, let alone like this, but we need to accept such creative choices. Don’t get me wrong, the ending of ME3 is one of the worst I’ve been through in regards to execution, but not storytelling: Having ghost images of what your actions will translate to moments before you choose your desired path is not exactly Mass effect worthy, but the eventual result scores an A+ on Sci Fi drama. Regardless, Shepard will die, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Protagonists have died a million times in a bazillion games, even Shepard can die up to a total of three times throughout the trilogy! why make a fuss over this now and expect the DLC to answer to that?
