The father of this board, sir flamechamp, concedes. Mass effect 2 > ME1

Make no mistake, I still am absolutely offended and quite honestly, hurt, that mass effect 2 got streamlined into a casual shooter with light rpg elements. That will never change. What they did to the Citadel in me2 compared to the huge vastness in part one was unforgivable.

But yes, I will finally admit, after 2+ years of denying it and after playing the games multiple times, I will concede that mass effect 2 is the better game.

Fanboys of mass effect 2 will say over and over, that me2 is "way more polished" and that is true, but its more polished because its a linear level based shooter. The "worlds" are just level-based missions with different backgrounds.

But forgetting that, the dialogue and characters are infinitely better than in me1. There isn't much interaction at all with the characters and the main story missions are just way too short and there is very little interaction.

Even though there really isn't a story in me2, you still have lots of dialogue and the illusive man and martin sheen really make the game what it is. Its sort of like how the dark knight is by far the best batman movie in the trilogy because the Joker "made" it awesome.

I've tried being nice to him, but he has never heeded my advice, so, he gets what he deserves.

ME1 is better in every way except cast. Every way.

The people who say Mass Effect is better than Mass Effect 2 are the same type of people who say July is better than toast.


Figure that one out.
