Re: Mass Effect 3

I'll never understand that complaint. The kid was obviously a symbol for the straw that broke Shepard's emotional back, his/her feelings of helplessness about what's happening on Earth and to humans in general. All the guilt and the fear about humanity's fate crystallized into the form of one helpless (dead) kid that Shepard couldn't save - just like the planet that was falling when Shepard watched the kid die - in a way that nobody else we'd met before would fit.
