Why was Mass Effect 2 so perfect and what does Andromeda have to do to be as perfect?

ME1 had some of the worst cover system and shooting mechanics that I've ever had the misfortune of playing.

One could argue that the first Mass Effect was a fluke and the series only found its voice on 2, considering 3 is a half-assed copy of 2. Take that as you will.

>>315620602
I like to think of ME1 as a platform to something greater. You always have to have a foundation to build on.

The only cool parts of ME2 were most of the cast, the loyalty system and the suicide mission. It's still the worst of the group by far.
>>
>>315619937
mass effect 2 wasn't perfect. For every step forward mechanically, there was another area which was a step back.

if anything, ME2 and ME1 both make the flaws of each other more apparent

You forgot one big ass flaw of the mechanics:
>Thermal clip pick ups spread the ammo across your weapons.

There was only so much bullshit I could take. I hope whoever designed this game dies in the toilet.
>>
>>315620036
Objectively this

Those who say ME2 was the best are casuals
Those who say ME3 was the best are contrarians
>>
>>315621350
The only good thing ME3 did was the shooty bits (vastly improved from 2) and the cross-class combo. Rest of the game was dog shit.

Then you don't play a lot of games

ME1 can feel difficult or unrefined but ultimately designs itself to have a decent progression gameplay wise, and reward awareness and multifaceted resource expenditure later on

ME2 is a lot of arenas and everything is basically a different kind of projectile

If you just want better animations and you play games totally mindlessly then yeah, I guess everything about ME2 will appeal to you, you can probably relate to all those daddy issues too, being that you're a teenager

But the first game will always be the finer and more fulfilling interactive experience, always, especially now that EA smells so much money in the brand

>>
>>315619937
Regardless of what you think of the game, can we agree that ME2 had the worst cover art of any AAA game in recent memory?
>>
>>315621665
3's was worse.
>>
>>315621660
The red text was never negative, just assertive. Blue is for keks, red for badass motherfuckers.
>>
>>315621273

Yeah whoever thought up Thermal clips should be shot. They're an incredible bad idea and awfully implemented (why can't you shoot without a clip, you'd just overheat but lacking one shouldn't disable the god damn weapon). They also destroyed a lot of the weapons, what's the fucking point of having a sniper rifle with like 10 total shots at a time.
>>
>>315621660
It's supposed to just be a negative reaction to a relationship with Cortez, but ME2 and ME3 are stupid and think all positive/negative responses are Paragon/Renegade.
>>
>>315621665
The worst that I can remember was the North American ICO cover.
Shit was beyond bad.

Most useless group of people in any game ever. Honestly? They pissed me off.

It's tradition by now.
>>
>>315622194
I wouldn't say they're the worst but they're pretty far down.

I'd vote the Volus for worst.
>>
>>315622426
Volus owns the fucking banking system of the entire galaxy. What the fuck are you on about? Worse would be those big dumb jellyfish and the Elcor trying to copy HK-47.
>>
>>315622573
>What the fuck are you on about?
Space jews, man. They're coming to get you.

I like the Hanar, their voices are dope.
>>
>>315619937
Mass Effect 2 was fucking garbage. The story was pointless and the final boss was a joke.
>>
>>315622573
Hey anon, Elcor are GOAT. Whole dam series I was hoping we would have one as a squadmate with a turret on his back.
>>
>>315622194

The krogans would be shit on a lot more if Wrex wasn't so well-liked. Stupid fucks are so savage that they nuke their planet to oblivion and have to be neutered by the superior species.
>>
>>315622856
This guy knows what's up.

>>315619937
How was it perfect? It was a dumbed down 1st with a disjointed and pointless story.
