Want the best Mass Effect 3 ending? Don't worry about Galactic Readiness

OXM: Quick refresh for the late-comers: your job in Mass Effect 3 is to mooch around a war-troubled galaxy, approaching representatives of key races and factions and saying things like "hey kids, why not put aside your stupid centuries-old sectarian differences so we can all concentrate on giving Johnny Reaper a jolly good stuffing". Once they're on board, races and factions contribute their warriors, fleets and so forth to your War Assets total, which in turn feeds into your Effective Military Strength. The higher the EMS, the more likely you are to administer said jolly good stuffing.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm enjoying this game, but parts of it are still leaving a bad taste in my mouth. First you have day one DLC feauring story-driven content that was cut from the retail release. And now you have the single player experience being polluted by the multiplayer. This is almost a parody of what's wrong with this generation of games.

the multiplayer can help the single if needed but not necessary.

I like this idea, as my first playthrough will consist of thoroughly going through game; completing all side missions, talking to everyone, trying to experience as much as possible.

In subsequent playthroughs i will then utilize multiplayer in order to skip the more forgettable side missions (get quest citadel, scan, return to citadel). allows me to get a better experience by changing it up and picking WHAT I WANT TO DO, in order to get best ending.

Everyone that says that the multi is affecting the single player negatively because IT CAN make it easier, is jumping to conclusions.

Why is this even in the hottest bar? This same type of article was on N4G days ago... with the same exact quote.

So if the ending i got was their best ending then i dont know what to say. My EMS was about 5625 and i didnt do 3 side quests because i forgot to collect something during the quest. I chose bad and good ending and their basically the same no matter how you try to spin it. I have 0 hope for Dragon Age 3 after they fucked up ME3 ending.

I have yet to play ME3, but by this description it sounds EXACTLY like the plot from dragon age. Can't help but remember that graph that was floating around a few years ago that had basically the plot of all Bioware games being the same.

I remember that chart. Had the baldur gate games on there 2.
