The epic conclusion to an space opera trilogy like Mass Effect 3 deserves an epic post-credits scene (also known as a "stinger").

Does this game follow the pattern of games like Halo, Metroid Prime, System Shock 2, and EarthBound and reward you for waiting through the ending credits with a short clip? Obviously, this scene wouldn't suggest a sequel, but I could imagine some sort of big reveal or the answer to a driving question.

Is there a post-credits scene in Mass Effect 3? If so, what does it show?

As a note, you don't need to actually wait through the credits. Pressing escape and then skipping them will still yield the scene. – Mr Smooth Mar 20 '12 at 15:44

Yes, there is. The scene is a conversation between a man and a child, who just finished telling the child the story of commander shepard. This scene is identical for all players, and doesn't appear to reveal anything of any importance.
