How come people prefer Mass Effect 1 and 2. I liked Mass Effect 3 more in every aspect (except for the incredibly crappy ending).


Because the ending nearly killed the love for the entire trilogy and there were small issues like auto dialogue and some bad retcons and ignoring of actual player choices in previous games. Also, how ME2 squeaddies were handled wasn't that great.


So, basically, it was because of the ending.

It's a shame people feel like that since the gameplay and 98% of the story were great. ME3 plays so much better than ME2 and although ME1 was good for its more RPG elements, the combat was clunky and squad management got tedious after a while.

People just need to judge the game on its merits. If you hate how ME3 plays and think it sucked, fine. That doesn't bother me one bit. Every game has supporters and critics. But the "I didn't like the ending 10 minutes, so the series I loved now sucks and I hope BioWare would die and that everyone would share my opinion" argument that I see out of so many people is getting tiring.


Except to many ME players STORY > GAMEPLAY. So thus the ending which completely screws up the story is a huge detriment. And anyway, I'd argue that ME2's combat is only lacking biotic explosions. It's pretty much equal with 3.

I am confused, we are currently in Generation 8 (3DS, Vita, Wii U, PC, etc.).

But, all the poll options are Generation 7 (DS, PS3, etc.)

I am going to assume he meant "What's the Greatest RPG of Generation 7?"

To be honest, I am not sure what to pick, so many to choose from:

Dragon Quest IX, Star Ocean 4, Ys Seven, Torchlight II, Bowser's Inside Story, Disgaea 4, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, etc.

I am not going to even try.

I will say the amount of Generation 7 RPGs to pick from goes something like this PSP>DS>PS3>360>Wii, but that is strictly looking at quantity.

So, pick your favorites I guess. :D

TWEWY is extremely overrated, IMO. I played it for 3 hours. The art style literally looks like garbage, and I didn't like a single character. I didn't even bother saving before turning it off for the final time.

out of all the games on the list I've played(which is pretty much all of them except Borderlands 2 and The world ends with you), it got to be Valkyria Chronicles.

I may have put more hours in Skyrim (so far), but I think Dark Souls beats it in terms of story, world, gameplay, and character customization (in terms of statistic build, equipment, etc., if not physically).

I don't understand the love for Xenoblade. I played thirty hours of it myself (up through Eryth Sea) and have watched the rest of the game played by a neighbor. The battle system is okay, but I preferred FFXII's (as far as similar systems go), and I strongly disagree with the "unique story" bit. It plays, feels, and progresses like every other JRPG to me.

Maybe its me but I consider Valkyria Chronicles more of a strat game than an RPG.

Anyways, Valkyria Chronicles, Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect (1), Oblivion and New Vegas all get my vote. But since we're asking for one, I vote Mass Effect, the first one.
