For me, this has rung very true. You play all three installments and you become very much attached to the characters as well as the campaign. Then you get to the final ten minutes of the game and its as if somewhere during the gameplay, you magically switched your console to secret disc number 3! I'm on my second-ish PT of ME3, having done some different things in ME2, like romance Garrus. This PT for me is basically my sort of "what-if" Shep. I just visited Kaidan at the hospital and he hits me with, "Was there something between you and Garrus?" My jaw literally dropped. I actually felt bad, like I cheated on him. (But hey, he treated me poorly on Horizon, so... sorry, I'm moving on.) And it hit me, even when I replay the games, knowing what I know about the ending, I still feel that attachment to what is going on. (Too bad the ending blew it to pieces. Seeing Garrus AND Kaidan-- my LI the whole way through the franchise -- walk off the Normandy when they were just with me on the ground with the Harbinger beam.... <facepalm>) So my question to anyone out there interested in responding is this: What were your emotional investments in the game, nay, the franchise? Were there any moments that truly hit you in ME3 based on what you'd done prior? Were there moments where you really did have to pause before making any crucial decisions as to what to say or do? Feel free to comment! Can't wait to hear (er, read) your thoughts!
