Thread: Are there fans of the Mass Effect games here?

    Default Are there fans of the Mass Effect games here?

    Hey guys and gals, I was wondering if there are any fans of the Mass Effect games here?

    I have played them SO MANY times that I have lost count!
    I have all the DLC for them as well.
    They are three GREAT games.
    FemShep FTW!
    Ride with the steel and the power of the sword.
    Stand up and fight now and forever more.
    Rise through the night sky with daylight's desire.
    To be free there must be Black Fire.

    Me. Was introduced through the series with 2 and went back to play the first one. Fell in love with the story and characters from the first one, but honestly prefer the gameplay in the second. I have my issues with 3, and no they have nothing to do with the bloody ending. I own all three on the Xbox 360.

    FemShep is the only correct Shep.

    Yea, pretty much the same for me. Started with 2, then went to 3. Then I just had to go back to 1 to get it all in. I own all three on the 360 as well. The ending for three sucks, it could of been better, but the story and the climax was building and then that ending had to END it all with no hope of continuation.

    Except the third, yes. I greatly prefer the first, although I'll admit the gameplay is bettet in the second.

    Femshep is the only true shepard.

    Didn't BioWare add free DLC to fix the problems with the ending?

    Yea. As far as I am concerned the DLC did not provide enough closure.

    Don't get me started on my love and obsession of Kaidan Alenko Mass Effect.

    I killed Kaidan and never looked back.

    Actually I kind of did. Ashley is a douche.

    Kaidan died for the good of the group. May he never be forgotten!

    No, Ashley died for the good of the group. She was also racist against aliens so there's that too.

    I played through the whole Trilogy for the first time last Christmas/Near Year.

    I rank them as:
    Mass Effect 2: Great.
    Mass Effect 3: Good.
    Mass Effect 1: Okay

    Problem is, ME1 had the weakest cast. Only Wrex was interesting or likable. Garrus got a lot better in 2 and Kaidan got a lot better in 3.

    Then of course 2 simply had the best cast in any BW game ever. Jack, Miranda, Garrus, Zaeed, Thane, Mordin... There were only two characters I didn't care for and that was Jacob and Samara.

    And dat Suicide Mission. Especially the Biotic Bubble part.


    That last part. where Jack is just totally exhausted, and makes the last desperate sprint for safety, combined with this music, is just immensely powerful. I love you Jack.

    I KNOW YOU FEEL THIS.

    Y'know, I put off trying this series for YEARS. I was always tempted because I love Bioware to death, but I always figured the game would be too much third-person shooter for me. Last year I finally decided to ME2 to try (since it seems that was everyone's favorite) and bam! I fell in love. After finishing 2 I played through 1 and and now near the end of 3. Already can't wait for ME4.
