Comment on A Philosophical Approach to a Better Mass Effect 3 Ending by NanoCorps.
Why can’t you just beat the reapers?
It’s shown that a thresher maw can take down a reaper, it’s shown that the quatrain fleet can take down a reaper. Screw the crucible. Screw the citadel. Why can’t you just beat the reapers the old fashioned way? Why isn’t there an option to be ready. If you come back from Mass Effect 2 with proof that the reapers are incoming, why the hell cant you import that save and have people actually believe Shepard about the reapers. The reapers would come, and it’d be your job to fight them. And fight them you do with every available asset, forging bonds, gaining allies and pushing the limits of the galaxy along the way? Why do you have to depend on the crucible or those three endings at all? End the cycle by crushing the reapers as a unified galaxy, jeez.
