Yeah I played 3 that was good. 4 I stopped playing cause I got bored of it. In the middle of 5 right now and it's good, but I know the ending and it's honestly atrocious how it ends.

I saw that ending, and it reminded me of Iron Sky, so I have mixed feelings about it. I suppose that if they knew a conventional ending would just highlight the entire premise is ridiculous, and so went for this semi-justifying approach. Their goal was probably to show all of us currently buried in entertainment and what not can have their lives rendered pointless in a blink, just like how the game itself was rendered pointless, but it still feels hopelessly muddled.

Probably the kindest thing to say is that the writers got trapped within their own structure. Silent protagonist with no dialogue works in pure action like Doom, or grandfathered cases like Half-Life, but it's ridiculous in an open-world game that's supposedly all about your freedom - especially when there's not even a defined protagonist whose personality could naturally dictate your options without stifling them. (I.e. it makes sense Arkham Batman sees little reason to wax lyrical to any of his opponents when he intends to beat them all down. It doesn't make much sense a rookie cop silently listens to some 26 y.o. pleas before opening fire first.)
