I don't care when people have opinions, I only care when they have stupid ones with no relevant points to back it up. /shrug
But yeah, beat the game yesterday. And now I cannot wait for ME3 ... hopefully some DLC will tide me over for two more years, lol.
But I think one aspect is really underrated by a lot. This game truly is revolutionary in how it's story transmutes into the next game. There are a mind boggling amount of references, conversations, and even quests that come in accordance to what you did in ME1 and the decisions you made. It's the only game I've ever played where I've actually thought hard about what i was going to do because of how it's going to affect my experience in the next game.
For instance, even on the ending (no spoilers here for anyone that hasn't beaten it) you can either have everyone survive, everyone die (even Shepard), or have two, three, four, five, six, seven, etc people die (could be anyone, it's never a specific person if you have x number die). These outcomes are all based on your actions and decisions throughout the game. There's just so many options.
Bioware pretty much bitchslapped every other RPG developer with this game.
That quote disregards the paragraph that preceded it though. I'm quite enjoying my experience, but it's not Mass Effect.
I'm also enjoying making innuendo to anyone I can.
I'm not trolling at all. People like you making claims like that are just annoying.
It's not about you liking the game or not. It's about claiming "it's not Mass Effect". That statement is beyond stupid. I always love when opinionated "fans" think they can denounce something in that fashion because they're under the impression they have some sort of superior insight on the matter that nobody else does.
I'm pretty sure the Dev team has a greater idea of what Mass Effect is or isn't than yourself. You know, that whole CREATING the game thing gives them a lot more expertise in the field. It's exactly like people saying Diablo 3 "isn't Diablo". It's a claim that's beyond stupid and reeks of ignorance.
Bah, rant over.
As far as the game goes, the Sniper Rifle has become my favorite weapon in the game. In Mass Effect 1 it was easily my least favorite. But the Sniper + Adrenaline Rush is pure win. Also, the story is outstanding so far. I'm 17 hours in and haven't even gotten all my squad mates yet or even done ANY side quests besides the "loyalty" ones you do for your squad.
One problem I had with the story in Mass Effect was the Keepers on the Citadel. That was quite a chance that the Reapers took, hoping that 50,000 years later all the keepers would still be on the station doing their thing, ready to activate the relay. What if someone had just come along and killed them all?
I believe it says in the codex that the Citadel creates them, or at least that's what the species of the Citadel believe because when you kill one another one appears.
I can't believe there's not a thread for this. Mass Effect is easily in my top 3 games of all time, and may just be my favorite game (excluding games that we love because it was a first of something, or a 'classic' we experienced when we were youger, because nostalgic factor always makes us like things more than we should).
But seriously, this game is going to be ridiculous. This could quite possibly turn out to be the greatest game of all time.
