    I enjoyed the ending too and think Bioware went for a very gutsy and cerebral vibe that is uncommon to most videogames. I largely feel this way due to the Indoctrination Theory floating around the internet (in short, Shepard has been indoctrinated through constant exposure to Reapers and Reaper/Tech and that everything post-Harbinger blast is not really happening). There’s more to the theory than this, and it’s well-supported on various discussion forums. I don’t see you mention it in this article, so it’s worth checking out if you’re unfamiliar with it.

      Honestly I wanted to write more on the ending but it would’ve turned out to be a ten page blog post, so I cut myself off before discussing the Indoctrination Theory. I want so badly to believe that Bioware constructed the ending to be that way, but I also don’t want to be disappointed if they didn’t. I definitely agree and think it adds a lot to the ending and the series as a whole.
