okay so i have always had a preference for renegade shepard. and it seems like most people who have only ever played paragon don’t understand why i prefer renegade.
y’all have this skewed view of how renegade shepard works. and i’m not talking about renegade choices, i’m talking renegade dialogue. because a renegade shepard can still do things like cure the genophage and care about/gain the loyalty of their crew members while still being renegade.
they’re still a big goddamn hero. but they’re a hero in a whole different light.
like renegade shep isnt just an ass. they’re smart and sarcastic and manipulative and cruel, but best of all they conduct their whole ‘no bullshit’ attitude using this very dark humor and it makes for SUCH an compelling character.
