Mass Effect 3 Destroy Ending The ending of the game finds Shepard presented with three choices by the Reapers architect Catalyst for activating the Crucible. The first choice allows players to destroy the Reapers while also wiping out all synthetic life in the galaxy.
On one hand, this choice guarantees the Reapers will be eradicated but it will also kill friendly synthetics like the Geth. Mass Effect 3 Synthesis Ending The last of the three choices presented by Catalyst is synthesis, where both organic and synthetic life throughout the galaxy would be fused with elements from each other so they can exist in harmony. When you play Mass Effect 3 again, load that new save file and play the ending again.
You will have everything unlocked. The Indoctrination Theory Currently, there is much ongoing discussion as to the meaning of the ending of Mass Effect 3.
A popular theory is that the ending scene after Shepard is hit by the Reaper's laser is actually an indoctrination attempt by the Reapers. Note the rather large plot holes. The indoctrination theory has some compelling arguments, and in some ways explains a lot of the ways that the ending disappointed players.

This is a valid question, as the Reapers tried before to indoctrinate Saren and failed as seen in the first indoctrination youtube video above. However, Saren's mistake was isolating himself and standing against the Council, thus making himself an enemy to the Council. People thereafter fought him and resisted him.
Eventually, Shepard defeated him. As Miranda said, Shepard is an icon. Which they did in the closing of ME3, flying their vast fleets into the mouth of hell to fight and get Earth back. By being indoctrinated, Shepard has led everyone to their doom. Is it possible that this is an ending that is meant to scream, "This is not right, this could not have happened?
I will be sure to update this article as soon as they do I am an avid fan! This confirms both Commander Shepard's survival and supports Uninhibited and Unrepentant's argument. Main ending 1 - Taking control over the Reapers If you intend to take control over all synthetic life including the Reapers , then you must choose the left ramp screen above. Approach the control terminal screen above and interact with it.
Main ending 2 - Destroying the Reapers If you intend to destroy all synthetic life in the galaxy including the Reapers , then you must choose the right ramp screen above. Use your weapon to destroy a power channel screen above. Main ending 3 - Synthesis If you intend to perform a synthesis merge organic and synthetic life , then you must choose a path located directly in front of you screen above.Control is nice in the aspect of the Deus ex Machina Shepard gets to be. Changes in the ending sequence are based on two criteria: A choice you make in the final stretch of Mass Effect 3 Your Effective Military Strength rating. Throughout all three games my Shepard expressed that free will is pretty much the most important thing for her and it's something she would always fight to protect whether it's the free will of an organic or a synthetic race doesn't matter.
By choosing synthesis I force everyone to become cyborgs not asking them if they want to and the process of synthesis can't choose between those, who want and those who don't. Even robo-Shepard speaks of his human form as "the man I was", "his sacrifice" and pretty much third-person, indicating he sees himself not as a transcended human, but as an entirely different entity. The below chart assumes that you chose to destroy the base in Mass Effect 2. Get the Perfect Ending Shepard Lives in Mass Effect 3 Updated on April 12, more Source This article will concisely explain what you need in order to get the perfect ending with the secret final scene in Mass Effect 3. Even if he deserved to be brainwashed, it isn't worth of sacrifacing others. So in effect, Saren was right, you watched your friends, your loved ones, everyone you ever knew die because you wouldn't make a choice.
You are making a choice that fundamentally changes all life in the galaxy. Especially if you chose to unit the Quarians and Geth, there is a line about the Geth uploading them to the Quarian's suits to help them adapt The innate problems with Destroy are: How are the relays actually rebuilt?
Also Shepard always treated the geth as equals, in that mindset they are interchangeable with any other race. Sure, TIMmy tried to control them and failed, but he wasn't having a conversation with the Catalyst about new solutions, Shepard was, so things are different. While you can control the Reapers initially it isn't guaranteed that that control is maintained. Only problem I have with control is that I consider reapers as power no one should ever have, there are no right hands for such power. Synthesis - Initially this was my preferred ending as it seemingly had the least negative impact on the galaxy and actually would have postive effects.
People thereafter fought him and resisted him.
Well put. Wreav's warmongery in synthesis is gone, he's changed because he was brainwashed. You forgot to sign in.
Remember to back up your save just in case you mess up better safe than sorry. With heavy losses our allied forces defeat the reapers, the mass relays are still intact, and through a little bit of space magic Shepard survives though she is badly wounded and has several surgeries and month of rehab to go through for a full recovery. If, however, you chose to save the base in ME2, you will need more EMS for each of these categories.
I just can't trust what the Catalyst says as again, this seems like a bid on self-preservation. Notice - If you've gathered less than points of effective military strength, then you won't be allowed to choose the ending on your own. Mass Effect 3 Synthesis Ending The last of the three choices presented by Catalyst is synthesis, where both organic and synthetic life throughout the galaxy would be fused with elements from each other so they can exist in harmony. By being indoctrinated, Shepard has led everyone to their doom.
So either evacuate everyone alive from the tower, and blow up the weird kid, or evacuate them to Earth, and blow up the Citadel with the weird kid. The first choice allows players to destroy the Reapers while also wiping out all synthetic life in the galaxy. Only problem I have with control is that I consider reapers as power no one should ever have, there are no right hands for such power. Which they did in the closing of ME3, flying their vast fleets into the mouth of hell to fight and get Earth back. Notice - If you want to outsmart the game and watch all three endings without having to repeat the final battles, then after you've talked to the Catalyst you should exit the game for a while, find a catalogue on your hard drive containing saved games and create a backup of a file named AutoSave.
