mass-games

I see the sadness behind your eyes. It tells a story that makes me want to weep. Pain and loss. But it drives you, makes you strong. It is that strength that people are drawn to. It is why you lead and others follow without question.

Hi, I'm sorry if this has been asked before but what is your favorite mass effect game and why?

Oh man that’s gotta be a tie between me2 and me3!

I love the character driven side of me2, and how it’s essentially a friendship simulator hahaha. I like that there really are consequences if you drag your ass and don’t finish the main quest quick enough (it makes it feel a lot more important) and I LOVE that there are so many diverse squad members!!

But there are so many things I love about me3. you’re back with your old me1 crew (with the addition of James, of course) which makes it so…sentimental. I love how the story is so much darker than the past games. I love the vastness of the story. I love how influential all of your actions are. I love that we can save entire races and stop wars and save planets. I just love how diplomatic and IMPORTANT you become in me3, after two games worth of people telling you you’re not needed.

That being said, I’ve always loved how me1 managed to set up an entire galaxy, its planets, it’s races, it’s political systems, etc all in a game that can be completed in 10 hours. me1 has aged so the mechanics can be rough and the animations aren’t all that stunning, but it’s such an intelligent game that doesn’t pander to its audience with over the top sequences and showmanship, which I really respect. But for me, it still pales in comparison to its sequels!

tl;dr I love all three eternally, but me2/me3 are tied for my fave

Thanks so much for asking omg
