How Mass Effect 3 SHOULD Have Ended

Posted 11-12-2012 at 04:55 PM by Anenome

(original post)

Karpyshyn gave us the finale he'd envisioned, and it's much less confused. His idea was that it's the use of biotics that causes some kind of dark-matter buildup in the universe that would eventually lead to the destruction of the universe, so the culling existed to buy time for figuring out how to counter this threat. The star-child or w/e would've been the entity charged with doing that, protected by the Reapers.

The ending should've been Shepard discovering the Star Child and their conversation should've revealed that the Star Child had a solution, but that the Reapers had rebelled and wouldn't let him put it into effect because it would mean the end of their reason for existing and result in a termination function that's hidden to them. Fearing that this function would mean their destruction they've blocked his efforts to put it into practice.

Shepard organizes a last ditch effort to release the cure for the universe, which works, and results in the Reaper function being executed, which cleanses them of the culling function and frees them back to their own devices, upon which they make peace with mankind and the universe and basically come out of the spell of opposition they'd held to.

Bam, the universe is restored to harmony in one fell swoop, and the Reapers even make restitution as best they can, now renaming themselves w/e they originally were and revealing their history and problems.

As penance, they fly off to the void to find other galactic quarters and share the cure with other galaxies that might be locked in the same struggle, seeding the universe with the cure for dark matter.

The end.

And a fucking great one it would've been too.
