My Top 10 Favorite Games

With 2014 over, it's time for me to update my list of top 10 favorite games. This is my personal favorites and will likely be different than your lists. These are the games that have stuck with me over the years. I still play them even after so many years. The order of these games is based on both the experience I had when I first played them and how they have held up over the years. For this list, I only picked one game from each series. For example, I love the Assassin's Creed games, but I can only put my favorite game from that series on my list. This year, two new games have joined my exclusive list. My list starts from #10 and moves down to #1 for my favorite games. Warning, there may be some spoilers.

10) Call of Duty: Black Ops. I know what you're thinking. Why is Call of Duty on your list? It's on my list because I have invested more hours into this game than any other. Hundreds of hours invested, and that's only for zombies. Yes, I love zombies mode. It's fun. I have fond gaming memories of playing zombies with a group of friends surviving the horde together. It was fantastic. I still play it with friends. The multiplayer is great to, but it's nothing really special. The campaign really stuck with me. It is still my favorite Call of Duty campaign. But it is zombies mode that really put this game on my list. I'm sure you disagree, but this is just my opinion. It's only number 10, there are 9 other games that I enjoy much more.

9) Batman: Arkham City. It's Batman! I love Batman. Always have and always will. The gameplay is fantastic: the combat flows, the navigation is smooth, and the stealth is challenging. This game is great through and through and it all takes place in a atmospheric open world. The boss fights are a real stand out in this game, but really every part of this game is fun. I had a blast playing it and still do.

8) The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. This is the only Witcher game I played since the first was not released on consoles, and it is fantastic. The combat is challenging and tactical, the questing is excellent, the world is immersive, and the non-linear story is top-notch. It is a very thought out game that excels at everything it seeks to accomplish. On top of that, the decisions you make throughout drastically change the game. The different results of your decisions are so different, it's like there are two different games with two different stories in it based on your decision. That provides so much replay value.

7) Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. A new edition to my list, Shadow of Mordor redefines the open world genre by fundamentally changing everything with the new addition of the nemesis system. It changes how you approach everything. It makes the game frustrating and difficult in the best kind of way. It's brilliant. Surrounding all of that is a solid game with excellent combat, stealth, and exploration. There is so much replay value as you create your own stories. I have had so many conversations about this game with my friends. We each have different stories to tell about it, and it's fantastic. Shadow of Mordor is truly the first next-gen game and will no doubt inspire developers to adopt this revolutionary system. I can't wait for a sequel.

6) Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. Assassin's Creed is one of my favorite video game series. I love traveling back in time and exploring these different historical cities and experience history unfold even if it is changed to fit the overarching narrative. Brotherhood is still my favorite of the series. Although ACII was an excellent game and is arguably the best, I have invested more hours in Brotherhood than any other AC game. Rome is a beautiful city and there is so much to do in it. This was the first game I played where I wanted to complete absolutely everything. Every side mission, every building purchased, every flag and feather found, every puzzle solved, and so on. I loved it. The story wasn't the best, but I greatly enjoyed having a strong focus on the Borgia family. They make great villains. I still remember how my jaw hit the floor with the game's ending. I was speechless. Along with all of that, there was the great multiplayer. Back then, it was new, fun, and unique. I enjoyed it so much. This was before it got tiresome with the sequels. That is why Assassin's Creed Brotherhood was my 2010 Game of the Year.

Alright, the top 5 are the heavy hitters. These are the games I have never gotten tired of playing. These are the games that hold a special place in my gaming heart.

5) BioShock Infinite. Wow. This game is amazing. Easily the best story in a video game I have ever experienced. I thought about this game for months after completing it. It was that good. I still think about it sometimes. I am really lost for words when I try to describe what makes it special because everything about it is special. I love this game. It is the best first-person shooter game I have ever experienced. That is why BioShock Infinite was my 2013 Game of the Year.

4) Dragon Age: Inquisition. There is so much this game does right. Great characters, great world, great story, great graphics, great gameplay, great questing, and so on. I love everything about this game. I spent over a hundred hours just in my first play-through. Making decisions has meaning and consequences. There were so many times where I simply didn't want to choose because it was such a difficult decision. I completely explored ever region and completed every quest, and I'm still ready for more. It was with a heavy heart that I choose this game over Dragon Age Origins, but Inquisition really earned its place on my list. Many fans may disagree, but I love this game nonetheless. That is why Dragon Age: Inquisition was my 2014 Game of the Year.

3) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This game is truly fantastic. You can easily spend hundreds of hours into it without even realizing it. You can play an all nighter and not even realize that you forgot to sleep. It's not the game's size that makes it great, but it's the fact that the world is filled with so many wonderful, memorable things to do. I still have gotten nowhere close to completing all the quests. It's that big. You will forget about the real world when you play this game. That is why The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was my 2011 Game of the Year.

2) Mass Effect 3. This game is the definition of epic. Although many fans hated this game simply because of the game's ending, I still loved the incredibly emotional and epic journey that led up to the game's less than desirable conclusion. Never have I been so emotionally invested in a game's story. I cared for every single character. When certain characters die or don't die, it hit me really hard. I really felt the weight of the galaxy as I tried to fight an impossible war. Along with the epic story, the combat is extremely fun and the questing is still excellent. This is one of the few games that I have completed 100%. Every mission, side mission, and every collectible. The entire year of 2012, I thought about how epic this game is. That is why Mass Effect 3 was my 2012 Game of the Year.

1) Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. This game holds a special place in my heart. I remember first playing it when I was 11 years old. It seriously took me 2 years to complete it. I wish I was exaggerating. This game doesn't hold your hand and flash lights in the direction you are suppose to go. It is true exploration. It felt so real as a result. I love everything about it. It was the first game where I got to make decisions about being good or evil. I remember the first time I decided to go evil and mugged an old man. I felt so guilty. I couldn't believe that I actually did that. It was truly something special. Sure, it's like bread on butter nowadays with RPGs, but back then it was really special. On top of that, the story was excellent. I still remember my reaction to the big reveal in the game. SPOILER. I was shocked for well over a week when it was revealed that I was Darth Revan. I was speechless. SPOILER OVER. I could probably write a book about how much I love this game. I remember taking a break from it after completing it. When I broke my shoulder several years later and was forced to rest, I cracked open this game and played it on my Xbox. It was still a great game. I still play it at least once every year. This is the game that has stood the test for time. Why this game is number one instead of the other BioWare games on the list is because KOTOR preceded all of them. It was the first BioWare game I played, and it was the best. That is why Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is my favorite game of all time.

I hope you have enjoyed my list. If you haven't played any of the games on my list, particularly the top 5, I highly recommend them. They are great solid games and are worth at least a try. What are your top 10 favorite games? Remember, you can only choose one game from each series. That provides more variety in your list. Where there any games that came out this year that made your top 10 list?

My Top 10 Games of 2014

This list contains every game I have played this year. This list ranges from my least favorite all the way to my favorite. Please note that I have not played every game this year. If a game you enjoyed this year isn't on my list, it means I have not played it.

10) Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. I have never played any other Metal Gear game before. Playing this one was a jarring experience for me in which even after hours of reading back lore, I still had no idea what was going on. It is fun to be sure, but I never had the desire to play it again.

9) EA Sports UFC. This game was a blast at first. Then after a couple of hours, I realized that the game's best moments had already passed. It is a shallow experience and is ultimately boring.

8 ) Assassin's Creed Unity. So much potential was waisted. This is by far the most disappointing game of the year for me. I hope the next entry will be much better.

7) Assassin's Creed Rogue. This game is really a Black Flag 1.5. That being said, there is quite a bit of fun to be had at times. It was far less frustrating to play than Unity.

6) Titanfall. This is a fantastic shooter. It is exciting, fun, varied, and constantly entertaining. It's the kind of game you tell stories about your experience with friends. Sure, it's not perfect, but there is plenty of fun to be had. I greatly enjoyed this game.

5) Watch Dogs. Although the game has its faults, this game is still a good start to a new IP. It made me excited for a sequel which I am hoping will fix all the mistakes of the first game. It was a joy to be move about the city, raise havoc with the touch of your phone and complete side missions. I look forward to hearing about a sequel.

4) Halo: The Master Chief Collection. It is great to return to Halo. I am a Halo fan who actually never played Halo 1 through 3. This was a great chance for me to experience the original trilogy in all of its glory. It is a very enjoyable experience even with all of its technical issues.

3) Destiny. This is a very flawed game. I gave it a low score of 6/10 because that's the score it deserved. However, it is an addicting game. Despite all the issues with it, I still kept playing it. I just kept going and going no matter how shallow the game was. This is because it is a fun game. The shooting mechanics are great and the progression system is enjoyable despite how shallow it may be. I really hope they continue to make improvements to it.

2) Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Wow, this game was good. The game's introduction of the Nemesis system is truly next-gen and will likely have a great impact on games in the future. The nemesis system provides so much re-playability with you being able to create your own stories in Mordor. I had numerous conversations with friends where we were sharing our different experiences with the game. Also, the combat is extremely fun with the small addition of challenge making the game feel completely fresh and interesting. This game would not be nearly as much fun if it wasn't challenging. I am extremely excited for Monolith to make a sequel. I hope they do.

1) Dragon Age: Inquisition. No one suspects the Dragon Age Inquisition! If you get that reference, then you are awesome. If you didn't, you are still awesome. This game is incredible. Over a hundred hours of gameplay is available and all of it is wonderful. The choices you make, the characters you meet, and the stories you experience are all incredible. Yes, the game has its share of technical issues, but that doesn't take away from how great this game is. BioWare truly listened to fan feedback, and it shows in every way.

What were your favorite games of the year? Do you agree with my list? Remember that those are all the new games I've played this year.

My Top 10 Favorite Video Game Antagonists

This list is filled with spoilers so approach with caution. To fully understand the characters I'm describing, you must play the games and experience them first hand. Keep in mind that my favorite villains are based on my opinion. Also note that these are based on the games that I have played. Enjoy.

10) Saren (Mass Effect): From the beginning, Saren is a dick. You instantly hate him and hope for is defeat. But as the story progresses, you understand his true motivation of saving the galaxy from the Reapers, however misguided he was. In the end, he redeems himself by taking his own life to stop Sovereign's control over him. Saren is a 3-Dimensional villain and takes his place on the list.

9) Loghain (Dragon Age: Origins): His betrayal in the beginning of the game creates a deep hatred for him that only his death would satisfy. Even if you decide not to kill him in the end, the wound caused by his betrayal will never go away.

8) Cesare Borgia (Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood): All previous assassinations in the series made you question if killing them was truly the right thing to do. Cesare Borgia is the exception. He is a spoiled brat who will do anything including murdering his own family to get what he wants. Only the throne of Italy would suffice, and even if he succeeded, he would probably want more. You feel no regrets when you throw him from the top of the fortress walls.

7) Letho (The Witcher 2: Assassin's of Kings): Letho is a complex villain. First, he has a history with Geralt. A history that Geralt himself doesnt remember until the end of the game. Second, you have no idea what his true intentions are until the end of the game. Leto is a constant mystery until the lengthy discussion with him in the epilogue. At the beginning, you long await the final duel with Letho, but are hesitant when the option to fight and kill him finally arrives.

6) The Joker (Batman Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, & Arkham Origins): The Joker is absolutely insane. His insanity provides an unpredictable struggle throughout each entry in the series. He is a complex individual that no one, not even the Joker, fully understands. It would be foolish not to include him on my list.

5) Zachary Comstock (Bioshock Infinite): Comstock has a serious God complex issue. He boasts about being a prophet and a servant of God while his actions prove the opposite. He is a asshole who will stop at absolutely nothing to get what he wants. What makes him an even greater antagonist to Booker is that he is Booker from an alternate universe. Comstock became who he is based off one simple decision when he got baptized and reborn while Booker turned away from Baptism. Comstock is an extremely complex character that all began from one decision. As a Christian, it was interesting for me to see a villain who went so far in the extreme that he actually became that which he swore to oppose.

4) Haytham Kenway (Assassin's Creed III): Through out the game, you have no idea how to feel about Haytham. As the father of Connor and the Templar Grandmaster, you really don't know how this is going to end. Haytham tries to be a father to Connor by showing him the "error" of his ways. But when Connor's conviction to the Creed and preservation of freedom, Haytham was willing to do what he thought was necessary to preserve his dream for the future.

3) The Illusive Man (Mass Effect 3): The Illusive Man's a dick. It's as if his sole purpose is to make your life difficult. He is constantly getting in your way to save the galaxy from annihilation to further his impossible goal of controlling the Reapers. He is willing to sacrifice the whole galaxy to get what he wants, to strengthen humanity.

2) Frank Fontaine (Bioshock, & Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 2): Fontaine is a manipulative, lying bastard. Through out Bioshock, he pretends to be an innocent family man named Atlas while he is actually secretly controlling you to further his own goal of ruling Rapture. Once he gets what he wants, he reveals his true colors and attempts to rid himself of his useful pawn that he created. In Burial at Sea, he has very cruel methods of torture to get what he wants. Ultimately, he is nothing more than a terrorist and a atom addict. But since he's smart and clever, that makes him one of the most dangerous people imaginable.

1) Darth Malak (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic): You have a score to settle with Malak. In the very first scene with him, he orders the destruction of a whole planet. He ends the lives of billions of people. This sets the tone for Malak throughout the game. Your goal throughout is to defeat Malak, but you don't really feel a reason to on a personal level. That is until your first encounter with Malak and he reveals that you were his master, Darth Revan, and he killed you to take his place as the Dark Lord of the Sith. At least, that's what he thought. You are not ready to face Malak in that first encounter. In the end, you escape but he captures Bastila, a very important jedi and your love interest. Now, it becomes very personal. After finishing your lengthy journey to find the Star Forge, you find that Malak has turned Bastila to the Dark Side. After an emotional duel, you either kill Bastila or you turn back to the light. Either way, you feel more determined to defeat Malak than ever before. When you finally reach the final confrontation, you feel goose bumps in anticipation for this epic duel. And what an epic duel it is. When you finally defeat Malak, he realizes the mistakes of his life and the folly of his belief of being invincible. Rather than feeling happy for his defeat, you can't help but feel pity for Malak.

My Most Anticipated Games of 2014

8) The Elder Scrolls Online: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of my favorite games of all time. When I played Skyrim, I kept thinking how awesome it would be to have other players in the game the game to experience it with. I'm a little hesitant because I don't want to have to keep paying for it after purchasing it, but I'm still excited.

7) Halo: Halo is fantastic! It is my favorite first person shooter franchise. I greatly enjoyed Halo 4, and I'm excited for the continuation of the Halo franchise.

6) Destiny: Words cannot describe how great this game looks. I'm not really sure what else to say besides how awesome it looks. I hope it will be as great as we all hope.

5) Titanfall: Wow, this shooter looks awesome. It's going to change how we play first person shooters. I'm very anxious to play this game.

4) Batman: Arkham Knight: The Arkham series is fantastic. I admit that I was disappointed by Arkham Origins, but now that Rocksteady is back in charge, I'm confident that Arkham Knight will meet our expectations.

3) Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor: I haven't seen any gameplay so far, but from what I've heard and the fact that it's in middle-earth makes me very excited. I'm a huge fan of Tolkien's books and the movies. This game is so high on the list because I'm a huge fan boy.

2) Assassin's Creed: Unity: Assassin's Creed is one of my favorite video game series. AC Unity is the first AC to take place in a time period that I truly hoped for; the French Revolution. I love the French Revolution. There is so much potential for its story. The only reason this isn't my #1 is that we haven't seen much of it yet, and I have really high expectations for it. Since it's the French Revolution, my expectations must be met otherwise I'll be at least a little disappointed.

1) Dragon Age Inqusition: We've waited a long time for the third installment for Dragon Age. BioWare is my favorite video game company. They make the best RPGs. I lose myself in every game they release. I'm very excited for this game!

Best of E3 2013

This is my personal favorites of E3 2013 list. Basically, these are the games I am really excited. Note though, these decisions are based off what is coming out for the X360, and the XONE. I'm an Xbox person.

10) Ryse: Son of Rome: I have no idea why I'm excited for this game. It just looks fun. I haven't played a good old fashion non-open world action game in a while. It simply looks fun.

9) Battlefield 4: I didn't care for the campaign demo, but the multiplayer was superb! After taking out a dozen enemies with team work moving up a building that you then parachute from while it falls apart. It's impressive.

8 ) Watch Dogs: There is simply nothing like it. It's so unique that you can't not be interested.

7) Batman: Arkham Origins: It's Batman! I loved both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. I have high expectations for this game. I simply wish it was releasing for next gen consoles.

6) Halo: I was surprised by the trailer. After Halo 4, I had no idea what to expect from a sequel. I still don't. Even though they only showed a teaser trailer, Halo is #6.

5) The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt: The Witcher II was a fantastic game! The power of choice was insane! I look forward to seeing how my choices will affect the Witcher III. And, I guess I look forward to the vast open world with an imersive story and varied gameplay. Those are good too.

4) Titanfall: This game looked amazing! The multiplayer is like nothing I've ever seen. I hope it's as fun as it looks.

3) Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag: I love Assassin's Creed. That's as baised as it gets. I've enjoyed all the games (to a varied degree). ACIV, looks like the most unique yet. I love that there will no longer be a loading screen for changing locations or going naval, etc. Also, I'm excited to see what the story will be like and what the templar's role will be.

2) Destiny: There is simply too much to say about this game. Either you heard about it already and are excited about it, or you haven't and you should fix that. Needless to say, it looks superb!

1) Dragon Age: Inqusition: I love BioWare! They are my favorite game developers. I loved KOTOR, ME, and of course, Dragon Age (including DAII). Dragon Age: Inquisition was my most anticipated game of 2013. The trailer blew my mind whole! The graphics looked five hundred times better than the previous games. The story looked much darker and grander than the previous game, and there's Varric. He's awesome. The saddest thing, was at the end of the trailer, when it said, "Fall 2014." Why... It looks so good. But, at least BioWare is taking it's time. I think it's interesting, that the development cycle for this game is two full years longer than the cycle for DAII. Despite the fact that it was only a trailer, it was still my favorite of E3 2013.

Top Ten Games Explained

10) Star Wars: Republic Commandos: This was the first first-person shooter I actually liked. I didn't always like shooters, but Republic Commandos was the exception. It was constant entertainment with intense combat with a awesome squad. Giving squad commands was probably the most memorable part. I'm sure there are other games that have that, but not as smoothly and as engaging as Republic Commandos.

9) BioShock Infinite: My favorite shooter of all time! It has the perfect mix, engaging gameplay, beautiful graphics, and a very intense story. Now, the story stands out the most, because it's one of the best stories I've ever experienced. It's incredible.

8 ) The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth II: Much of my childhood was spent coming home and playing Battle for Middle Earth II. I've played a lot of RTS, and for some reason, this is my favorite. I'm not sure why. Maybe because it's lord of the rings. Maybe because of the different gameplay modes, or multiplayer, or hero creation. Just to be clear, this is only for the PC. I did not like the X360 version. It took away my War of the Ring mode and hero creation. My two favorite parts.

7)  Assassin's Creed: The first game I ever owned for the X360. AC was like nothing I've ever played before. Words cannot describe how much I enjoyed this game, and how eager I was to continue the story after. It was a fantastic start to an excellent series.

6) Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood: AC Brotherhood is huge! There is so much to do in it, and all of it is wonderful. I get so lost going from one side of Rome to the other. Although the story was lacking, it did have a great villian, Caesare Borgia. It was also fun to continue with Ezio.

5) Mass Effect 2: BioWare, you are the best. Mass Effect 2 is an amazing game with a great cast of characters, an engaging story, excellent graphics, and fun combat. Needless to say, it's superb.

4) Assassin's Creed III: So many people did not like this game. I'm not one of those people. I admit, it has it's problems. The cities are less fun to explore, and there are lots of glitches. But I can look past that because of the improved gameplay and the incredible story. The story was exactly what I wanted, unpredictable. I could only predict like one or two things. None of my theories were correct. The story also came back to what made the first game's story so special, there is no side that is right, or does no harm. The assassin's and templars are neither good or bad. That's what made it interesting, the grey area. The Ezio triliogy was making the conflict more and more black and white. I walked away thinking about this game for quite some time.

3) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Skyrim!! Anyone who has ever played this game knows how awesome it is! There is just so much freedom. You can do anything you want in this huge open world. It's outstanding! There are so many quests to do and they're all wonderful!

2) Mass Effect 3: The epic conclusion to and epic trilogy. This game is literally the definition of epic. Despite the amount of action, it still has an immersive story. The story was a rollercoaster of emotions. From fear to desperation to defeat to sadness to hope to more sadness and to one final epic battle! Although the ending left much to be desired, the journey of the story was unforgettable and unmatchable.

1) Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic: The absolute best game I have ever played. Period. BioWare's masterpiece. I grew up playing this game. I have played it hundreds of times, and I will play it hundreds more and never get tired of it. It is that good. This truly is the standard for all video games. I can't imagine any other game to take its place as my #1 game of all time!

Assassin's Creed III Conclusion

Assassin's Creed has come to be one of the best video game series of the decade. Since 2007, the AC franchise has released 5 console games and several hand held games. One thing I have come to expect from AC, is shocking endings. After the end of each game, I have asked the same question, "Oh my goodness, what's going to happen next?" It's a great feeling, to then wonder what will come next. I did not feel that way at the end of ACIII. The ending was very abrubt and provided no closure for our beloved Desmond. But there are two different endings to this story, one of the past and the present.

SPOILER ALERT!!

Connor's Conclusion: Connor's story was a very emotional one. It was arguably the most emotional story in the series. Connor's ending was much different than previous games. For starters, Sequence 12 takes place right after Connor fought and killed his father, Hatham Kenway, who was the Grandmaster of the Templars in America. That for me was surprise because I thought you would kill him last seeing as he was the Grandmaster. This was used as a spring board for the emotional conclusion. After several missions of chasing down the new Grandmaster, Charles Lee, both Connor and Charles are severly injured. Connor follows him to a tavern in the frontier. He finds Charles sitting down at a table with a bottle of beer (i assume). Connor sits down next to him and puts the knife on the table and looks at him. With no dialogue throughout the scene, Charles takes one last drink then offers it to Connor. Connor takes a drink, Charles then sits straight up silently saying it's time, he's done running. Connor grabs the knife, pulls Charles in close, then executes one single thrust into his chest. Connor takes the ammulet, and leaves. This scene throbs with emotional resonance. This killing of the main villian breaks the AC pattern of having a final epic duel with the villian, killing him, and having the classic death monologue. This time no final duel, no death monologue. Instead, a silent emotional end. I was impressed. But the story isn't over, Connor has one final dialogue with Juno back at Connor's abandoned village. Juno tells him he has succeeded, but Connor believes he has failed. This is when Connor finally learns that what he seeks, liberty and justice for all, he will never achieve. Connor then hides the ammulet where none except Desmond will find it. Connor story's conclusion is bot emotional and a satisfying end.

Desmond's Conclusion: We have come to know Desmond very well over the course of the series, which includes 5 games. 5 games were leading up to Desmond fulfilling his destiny by saving the world. 5 games of build up!! But Desmond's conclusion lacks everything Connor's ending had, it lacks emotional resonance, it's very abrubt, and it also answers almost none of my questions presented from previous games. Desmond's ending is even more dissappointing than the end of Mass Effect 3. It's that bad. Basically, Desmond uses the ammulet to open the vault. They find a glowing sphere, where Juno is standing telling to only touch and the world will be saved. Suddenly, Minerva comes and yells, "Don't!" Apparrently, Juno used their technology to contain her living self within the orb, and that by touching it the world will be saved but Juno will be free (throughout the game, you discover that Juno has a Templar view of the world. How she used the Apple to control people and even tried to use it to control the world) and suck the life from Desmond. Minerva says that the world's chance was lost, their time wasted by the Assassin vs Templar war. Juno then shows Desmond a vision of what the world will be like if he doesn't touch the orb. The world will burn, but it is not the end. The will begin a new, but all of the world's conflicts will simply begin again in a new cycle, and it will all happen again. Desmond then desides (quickly with almost no decision conflict) to use the orb and save the world, saying we'll deal with Juno and her schemes later. Desmond then gives a very quick goodbye to his dad and touches the orb and dies. Credits roll. During the credits there is a news reporter describing the world beginning to burn, but quickly ending meaning the world was saved. Then Juno walkes by Desmond's dead body and says, "you played your part well, now it's time I played mine." The end. Lame ending. First off, they could have made the ending more dramatic. I mean seriously, we've come to know Desmond over the course of 5 games, and all we get is a very quick goodbye to his dad? Sorry, only Connor gets an emotional ending. Second, there are many questions left unanswered. There is a big list, so I'll just discuss the most important one. At the end of Brotherhood, when Juno is speaking to Desmond after touching the Apple, she says, "there is another who will walk through the gate with you. She is not within our sight." Who is this "she"? I've been wondering that for two years, and they don't even add another character. That frustrates me. The reason I say Mass Effect 3's ending is better is because (SPOILER ALERT) when Shepherd dies it's at least very emotional. They ending may be nonsensical, but it's emotional. I got to say farewell to a character that I cared for after three games. Only three when compared to the five games with Desmond! Overall, It seems like Ubisoft pulled this out of their ass at the last min.
