But the thought of suffering through that terrible ending again is making me question whether I should. Same reason why I'll never watch (mostly) good shows like Lost or Game of Thrones again. A bad ending can literally ruin the entire thing, even if the rest was enjoyable.
Remember though, that all your efforts are for nothing. They'll find the catalyst and find a replacement commander to get those resources if you retire or die. It's not like Commander Shepard was the one unique variant during this galactic cycle that unified the entire galaxy to fight off the Reapers.
The ending. Such bullcrap. If they had changed the ending with this legendary edition, it would have been the best remaster ever and would title 2021 as my best gaming year ever.... T_T
Funny, was literally having a conversation about shows that killed their goodwill in the final season or two, and those are the biggest offenders. Not that they're the only ones - most sitcoms suck towards the end (King of the Hill was pretty bad for at least 2 or 3 seasons, Simpsons has been unwatchable for something like 20), but they generally stay rewatchable.
I'd question, though, how rewatchable most shows like this are. Is Breaking Bad in syndication anywhere? Does anyone really rewatch it? It had a critically acclaimed spinoff, but I feel like it disappeared comparably to how Lost did. Maybe I'm out of touch, since I really have no clue what's in syndication.
One show that was constantly accused of screwing the final that I disagree with is How I Met Your Mother. The final season was reviled, but I watched the show start to finish 3 or 4 years ago, and would honestly say that the writing of the final season feels so much closer to the first few seasons than the other later seasons did, as most of them turned the characters into cartoons, as most sitcoms do.
