The Ending of the Mass Effect Trilogy

"I’m not here to talk about the ending of Mass Effect 3. The subject has been bled to death and I have no intention on talking about the controversies of Mass Effect 3‘s ending, or how stupid the Indoctrination Theory really is. But I am here to talk about the ending to Mass Effect’s stories. Mass Effect is a series about choice. It’s about how Shepard is used as a blank slate, a vehicle for the player to interact with and experience a rich sci-fi world. It’s about understanding nothing is as clear as black and white. It’s about accepting change and breaking the status quo. It’s about being better than what everyone thought you could be. It’s about you." (Mass Effect 3, PS3, Xbox 360)

Interesting title considering you're "not here to talk about the ending" - its clear you're using the ending as a large flag to draw attention to the article.

Also by saying the IT is "really stupid" you're also alienation a lot of potential readers. You say you're not going to talk about it but quickly add your 2cents in on it before you continue anyway.

"I'm not here to talk about that, btw its stupid, but I am here to talk about the end to the story."

Unnecessary. Also there is no distinction between the ending of Mass Effect's stories and the ending of Mass Effect 3. The ending of Mass Effect 3 IS the ending of the story. Not here to talk about the ending of ME3, but are here to talk about the ending of ME's stories. Right.

You know they're both the same thing right? The ending may had been bad but that doesn't make it part of a different game or story, its still the 'official' ending. No point trying to overlook it.
