There is just one plothole: the fact that the Reapers have "inside man" in Citadel all the time. But, they have to figure several plans how to open Citadel mass relay instead. Rachni Wars, Geth attack, human reaper...Catalyst could simply open the Citadel relay when time has come and we would be screwed just like Protheans was. Or, why the super godlike AI let Protheans to sabotage Keepers at first place?

"I am a five year old kid! I just like to blow things up!"

Haha, the only thing that made sense from that ending. :)

I would say something supportive like, "I'll hold him", but never know where big brother is and the FBI doesn't like conspiring to beat little god children spawned by rEApers....

Actually, if you read what the real ME3 ending was supposed to be like...

Then none of these are actually plot-holes... unless the god-child was going to be in the Karpyshyn ME3 ending, in which case these would still all be plot-holes :D (but i don't think it was going to be in there...)

I knew they had to have something with what Tali found. That makes -so much more sense-.

Like the first comment on that page says, practically -any- ending is better than the canonical endings...

That really makes ye think, doesn't it?

Karpyshyn's ending definitely makes more sense, but it still smells like "No matter what you did in prequels-ending" to me.

Would have been a thousand times better ending than the one we got...

Thats what happens when you don't have a script for the full story and just produce a beginning of something you don't know how it continues and then change out the creators to finish it.

This pic indicates that in ME1 there was planned that theres gonna be a child in the citadel ruling the reapers, when they finished ME1 none not even the devs thought of any events in ME3.

Make it a Demotivational Picture and write "Guide on how to mess a story up" beneath it.

I still don't get why the catalyst was that child... or his appearance... or whatever. Well I share Nazaras urge.

This is assuming the Catalyst has control over the Citadel - What if it has no control over it?

Super godlike AI that BUILDED the Citadel and Reapers is not able to control it? Come on. Thats like build yourself a house, lock yourself in and dont have keys.

The AI probably wasn't even conscious until the Catalyst was activated. It's not a being, but an interface.

This should be on the 'very special Director's cut' of Mass Effect 3.

*Listens to all 3 endings*
Me : Oh wait a minute, I'm smart.
Kid : What ?
*I take out a pistol and shoot the kid*
Me : Easy, spam all options to exclude yourself.

*Reapers die, relays are safe, Geth are dead because I already killed them myself*
