Is it possible to get the best endings playing as a renegade? Or the choices you make (if you are not tempted to break character) are inherently evil at some point, which would prevent them?

Is there anyone on gaming who isn't playing a Renegade Vanguard? – Raven Dreamer Mar 8 '12 at 19:58
@RavenDreamer I'm playing a I was playing Infiltrator but you people convinced me Vanguard was better :/ – Ben Brocka Mar 8 '12 at 20:00
@Ben, I'm playing a Paragon infiltrator. I wonder how a Vanguard is better now... – juan Mar 8 '12 at 20:03
The Charge ability is really nice, and Cloak is really...meh. I'm not a good one to ask though because this is my first playthrough of any ME game – Ben Brocka Mar 8 '12 at 20:04
As stated in the blog referenced in this answer, You’re also never going to be the villain of Mass Effect 3. You are always fighting to save the galaxy, no matter what tactics you take. So feel free to indulge! – FAE Mar 8 '12 at 20:14

Yes. Here is a list of largely spoiler free ending info with requirements listed, you have to click to expand the spoiler for each ending.

Morality doesn't affect whether you can get the "best" ending, though whether or not you saved the Collector base in ME2 forces your hand for certain ending levels.
