Today I beat Mass Effect 3. I wanted to see why the original ending was so bad that they needed to make a new one, so I didn't download the extended cut dlc. Honestly I don't get all the hate.

Little background on my character: Paragon throughout all 3 games, saved everyone I could, and decided to jump into the Citadel energy at the end. At first I was a bit bewildered, but after a while I understood what happened for the most part.

Now what I what to know, is why didn't people like it? Was it not knowing what became of the universe after that? What happened to the crew? Any other particular reason?
