3 was awesome. It tied up a lot of the stories that built up in mostly satisfying/interesting ways. The actual conclusion was trash though and it deserves all the hate it gets imo. You can't build up to such a fizzle.

Quote taken way too seriously in this instance. Such great potential and ends so abruptly and in a way that I feel did not fit in the universe at all.

1=Best RPG mechanics and great overarching story buildup
2=Best characterization. Got to enjoy the companionship of all the cliche'd yet interesting characters
3=Best combination of them all but weaker in all respects.

I saved all dem geth and there was, quite literally, one Geth Harvester in the finale.

Still, I enjoy the series for the gameplay and 3 has what I like most. And the multiplayer is fun! And not a chore, since they patched the game so you could get the good ending without playing it.
Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

1>2=3. All good, though not a fan of 3's MP... but it doesn't make the SP any worse (now).

imo 1 > 2 > 3, but I can understand why people say 2 > 1 > 3

Anything else is wrong, though.
Best weapon combo in tf2:

everything outside combat is lame in 3. even that had that 'A button does everything' garbage.

2 > there were no other games in the series as far as i can tell.
My whole life has been a miserable pig filled ordeal because of you.

1 had the best story, but the unnecessary RPG trappings hurt the game. 3 had the best mechanics by far and 2 was probably the best balanced.
If they asked how I died tell them: Still angry.
