Mass Effect 3 has, depending on certain conditions, up to three possible endings.
The end-game options are clearly laid out for Shepard, and each scenario is apparently represented by a different path Shepard can walk down. It is made very clear that how the ending plays out is up to Shepard to decide in this moment. So it only stands to reason that Shepard should be explicitly told, or given a clear visual indicator to, which path would lead to which ending.
However, when I reached the final decision point, I did not see anything that clearly indicated which actions would lead towards which ending. Certainly, I could have gone online and looked up a walkthrough to help me figure things out. However, I really feel that the game should have done a better job of leading me towards where I wanted to go.
In the end, I went with what my gut was telling me might possibly achieve my desired result - though I still really worried that the action might have actually led to an ending other than the one I desired. Fortunately, this ended up being the right choice for me. So, in some regards, I suppose it can be said that the game did its job even though I don't really feel like it did.
Still, I'm left wondering if I might have missed something. Is there a clear in-game indicator of which actions will reflect each of Shepard's possible choices? I'm specifically not looking for a simple guide that says "if you do this, you'll get that ending". I want to know what, if anything, the game does to give such directions to the player.
