Oh... Well, I must admit I'm a bit disappointed. I thought I could finally get a good discussion with someone who likes the ending; most places online seem to have degenerated into echo chambers for people who hate the endings. :D

What do you mean by RPG elements? The inventory management? Non-combat skills? You also mention that you're finding the writing horrible on this playthrough. Could you elaborate on that? Like I said, I found the quality of writing to be generally pretty good. The main offenders to me were the beginning (terrible pacing, attack on Earth lacking in gravitas), Kai Leng (seriously what the fuck that's the lamest goddamn guy), and of course the ending (not gonna summarize here, jeez).

Anyway, it's not all negative is it? Personally, I freaking love the rest of the game. The ending wouldn't be such a kick in the nuts if the rest weren't so awesome! What parts did you guys really like?

I laughed. :D

Also for anyone hopeful: I want to point out that no "alternate ending" has been announced. They've said they're taking in the feedback and thinking about a good way to appease the fans without compromising the writers' "artistic integrity".

EDIT: Also I feel the need to link this here because lol Kai Leng.


Christ that is some terrible goddamn prose.

The Extended Cut DLC is out today, btw. It'll be a few weeks before I get to play it, but after reading some reactions to a few spoilers (which I didn't read) I'm cautiously optimistic that it'll address at least some of the glaring problems in the original ending.

It'll probably still be dumb, but I'm hoping for something less incomprehensibly stupid than the original.
