All the mass effect games have a story which one is your favorite I personally love the first one despite the graphics
The First installment will always be special... as you are introduced to a new universe, a new story. That always builds up the flair of something.
It is hard to separate it, as especially Mass Effect stretches the story over the whole trilogy. You can play each game separately, of course, but all combined makes story somewhat complete. And I don't think the Story of ME2 is useless because of ME3. ME3 is the conclussion and it shows, that without the events of ME2, the original ME 1 Shep or Normandy would have never stand a chance against the Reapers, especially at leaving Earth. And the Rise of Cerberus was imo vital to get you to the right direction and to fight the Reapers as one.
But ME1 will always be special, as will the End of ME2 will always make me scream ... come on Shep jump...... and YEAH we made it...... or the End, Once and for all in ME3 makes me very emotional every time, 'this is it, isn't it'.
Yes me3 has a sad ending. It's even more sad when you romance someone
That is true. It is sad for the ones that survive, like the player and, depending on your choices, Shepards love interest.
In such a time as a war against extinction, we cannot comprehend the impacts of those relationships. They are both, a source of strength but also your main weakness, because the loss of your loved once can cripple you beyond any harm that would be inflicted on you physically otherwise. I always comfort myself with the thought, that no matter how much Shep loved someone, who even went aling until the very end, Shep knew that the sacrifice for the greater good would help in healing the scars and pain the Sheps demise causes and that the love interest would understand.
Still it is sad as hell.
And Liara is pregnant for sure and she will be, even if you have another love interest, because she wants to. The inter species relations are mot compatible and Ashley is too workaholic to forget her space pill.
I truly can't separate the story down to one game. Simply because of the characters and their implementation and development. Take Tali for instance.
I agree with Marolf that the trilogy as a whole makes for one hell of a story, but ME1 will always be my favourite (agreeing with Marolf again). If you fall in love with a series of games, the first one you played is always going to hold a special place in your heart, because it was your way in. (I feel the same way about Dragon Age Inquisition, because even though it's the third full game, it was the first one I played, so it comes with an emotional intensity for me that the others will never 100% match.)
Tbh the graphics in ME1 don't even bother me, I find them charming and they fit the whole feel of the game.
The graphics are okay in me1 I guess but me3 is my fave so to speak
Mass Effect 2 is better then ME1 & less Tragic then ME3.
What do you think?
