Spoilerville: Mass Effect 3
Now that Mass Effect 3 has been out for nearly a month, GamesBeat thought you might be interested to see what would have happened if Commander Shepard went right instead of left, zigged instead of zagged.
Below you’ll find all the various death scenes in the game (for characters that mattered, anyway).
It’s surprising to see Wrex die so easily; if only the enemy krogan in Mass Effect 2 could be stopped in their tracks with just a couple of pistol bullets….
Mordin’s Sacrifice (Paragon)
Mordin’s Death (Renegade)
Regardless of how Mordin bites it, it’s arguably the most effective death in the entire trilogy. Mordin is hard not to like, and his sacrifice is a bittersweet one. He gives his own life to find redemption and save an entire race of aliens. Or, if you’re Renegade like me, you may have to stop Mordin yourself, which was still a hard choice. Renegade doesn’t mean “evil,” but it sure felt like it while watching Mordin painfully crawl towards the control panel, dying from the bullet I just put in his back. Sorry old friend, but the krogan were too much of a liability.
Of course, had things gone a little differently, Mordin might have seen things my way.
While Miranda dies almost by default, it is possible to save her.
Tali and Legion’s Death
Two of the series’ best characters gone in a matter of seconds…. What is this, Game of Thrones?
Mass Effect 3 death videos are continued on the next page.
