    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    why do you do this


    damnit

    I'm going to go with Mass Effect. I like how it carried more over from one game to the next while DA was a long story with multiple mains over a long time.

    Formalhaut Greatly Approves

    I love both, but I've got to say I'm a Dragon Age person. I guess I prefer the setting, with magic, a heavy emphasis on religion and all of the issues surrounding that, and also the game has always been more liberal. Mass Effect eventually embraced same-sex relationships, but Dragon Age has from the beginning always been inclusive, and improving every time, like with the first Trans character in Inquisition (and I will not stop going on about how amazing that is).

    I feel Dragon Age takes itself just slightly less seriously, which I approve of as well.

    I have played ME:2 and some ME:3 and I am currently playing DA:O and I voted Mass Effect because of what I have played, I prefer Mass Effect. It made me much more excited to play and kept my attention a lot more. But my opinion may change once I play more of both series

    I do think its funny though because I prefer fantasy medieval settings to other settings generally but I prefer Mass Effect to Dragon Age (so far) and Fallout to Skyrim, which also has a more fantasy medieval setting

    I could talk about either game all day. But especially Dragon Age. It's the sort of game I could never tire of completely.

    This is a tough one.

    On the one hand, I legitimately consider Mass Effect 2 to be in my Top 5 RPGs Ever. It's pretty much perfect - cast, music, combat, setting....

    Unfortunately, it wasn't quite perfect. Someone at BioWare was like "this game is TOO good. Let's screw it up." Miranda was originally going to be a romance option for Femshep. But nope! Not anymore. Now Manshep gets both her and Jack. smurf that. Femshep all the way. If I could just romance Miranda with my Femshep, ME2 be perfect.

    Now, I came into the ME series after Dragon Age Origins and 2 so perhaps I just had unrealistic expectations. Origins gave me Leliana and Zevran, both of which I loved. DA2 gave you everyone. By contrast, ME felt so constricted.

    Now, that all being said, while I like the Krogan and Reapers, DA's Qunari are possibly my favorite fictional race and ideology ever. I think they are amazingly interesting and I love learning more about them. I got "A Worthy Rival" with the Arishok in DA2 without even trying because I simply agreed with him a lot. He made so much sense to me and to this day I would say he is not only the best DA antagonist, he's one of the best BW antagonists period.

    As it stands, with three games each, I feel....
    Dragon Age Origins: Good.
    Dragon Age II: Good.
    Dragon Age Inquisition: Ehhh. Okay. I mainly hate the gameplay
    vs
    Mass Effect 1: I legit don't like it. Weak characters, weak gameplay, weak choices.
    Mass Effect 2: AMAZING.
    Mass Effect 3: A lot of fun and really cool...until you stop to think about it.

    I guess, overall, I prefer DA. But only barely.

    Oh! I really wish ME had party banter. That was another thing I missed.

    Mass Effect are the better games with more interesting characters, lore, gameplay, and storylines. I also like space more than fantasy.

    This, except I think I like fantasy more than space so it tells you what a great job Mass Effect did.

    Mass Effect. Series genuinely made me feel feels.

    (that and being a Krogan Vanguard in ME3 Multiplayer was da bomb, especially when he'd start laughing to himself on a kill streak. Glorious!)

    I can't choose between them, I really can't. They're two of my favourite games series, and I love them. WAY more than Final Fantasy, actually. Should I have admitted that on a Final Fantasy forum?

    Mass Effect is sweeping, which is funny because all I hear about Mass Effect is 'ugh that ending I can't even'.

    I'm not surprised.



    Sci-fi RPGs are rarer so ME is seen as more unique than DA which, to be fair, has a pretty unoriginal setting in broad terms.

    Also Mass Effect 2 is just that good. Shame about the other two games....
