Same here, absolutely loved the series until the ending. Legendary Edition is on Game Pass but I just don't feel like touching it at all.
Well, crap. I'm playing through the trilogy for the first time and am pretty far into 3 now. I'm absolutely loving it but now I'm scared to finish it! I knew the ending was divisive, but it sounds like it goes even beyond that for you both.
Also, for @Medisti come join in on the XBox Empire thread here. Don't worry about reading the whole thing, just jump in and let us know what you're playing!
