Another anon the other day said it perfectly. They missed a golden opportunity to actually run with the whole SPECTRE thing instead of just essentially dropping it after ME1. Instead of having a trilogy that degraded into "muh reapers" they could have turned the series into a James Bond like series where you play a Shepard who travels around the galaxy saving it from various evil plots every different game.

I liked the alternative 3's ending that they introduced in a patch. The one where you shoot the little prick and basically you all die but the next cycle survives. I like it because I never expected to defeat the Reapers and it made more sense to me that the next cycle(or the one after that) would be the one to survive

Why did they plaster artwork from the beta builds all over the ME1 box?
>>
>>284474960
ME2 kind of did that with the Collectors.

i'm hoping the 4th game is more rpg than mindless tps but for now i'll just remain indifferent about it to avoid disappointment

The problem with that is that they still tried to connect it to their overarching story about the Reapers. The Collectors on their own would have illustrated the direction I wanted the series to go in perfectly though.

>the only character i actually want to fug

>>284474960
They made a couple of fatal choices, completely removing stats from 2 and 3 basically killed all fine tuning from the game and if they just went with the originally intended dark matter ending for ME3 instead of ripping of Deus Ex they could have at least ended the trilogy in a way that wouldnt make most people lose their shit. In Mass Effect 2 and 3 you almost get no loot and there are no numbers so you basically have to just try out every gun and since currency wont actually buy you anything relevant its just redundant. Its nothing new but if your game lacks complexity it gets old fast.

>Mass Effect 1: a perfect sci-fi RPG. Could have benefited from more customization and choices, but I guess they were setting up an entire universe so it's forgivable. Exploration was alright, but lackluster at times. The story was the best in the series.

Mass Effect 2: RPG elements took a step back. Great character development. Best looking cities in the franchise, apart from the citadel. The suicide mission was the peak of the series, but it's followed by one of the worst final bosses of all time. The plot felt like a filler, but it was still better than the one in ME3.

Mass Effect 3: Very little redeemable qualities. It was only good during the "remember this guy" moments. Story felt rushed, and inconsistent with major plot points from previous games. It's obvious they changed a lot of stuff late development, and didn't have the time to think it all trough.
