I'd say God of War, Killzone, Resident Evil, Gears of War, and maybe Halo would be best played as an entire series, but that's just my opinion. It really depends on how you go about it. Some people are fine not knowing the whole story. Kind of like how Tekken Tag 2 just throws you into a group of characters that are briefly kind of explained in their arcade ending, or like how a ton of people didn't really know who Ness was. They are fine just playing the game.

@kkslider5552000 I'll probably get the trilogy for my PS3 if I'm ever getting it. For 10 dollars more, I would rather get 2 extra games instead of the DLC. This just reminds me how much EA hates the Wii U. They release the trilogy at the same time as the Wii U's version of ME3. Talk about self sabotaging.

In hind sight it was easy to make the trilogy for the 360 cause they'd already been made for it. In the case of the PS3 they only needed to port the first game over but in the case of the Wii U they would have had to do the entire trilogy. Not that I'm saying that I would have preferred it if they'd done entire trilogy but I don't think it's as black and white as it's made out to be irrespective of the dodgy publisher behind it.

Again, while not releasing the trilogy was the stupidest idea ever, the game Mass Effect 3: SE on Wii U I spent more than 40 hours on, loved every minute of it, especially loved the Game Pad usage so much that I can't imagine playing the game without it, and without a FREAKIN ' MAP, the little special effects on the game pad radar, choosing the different powers on the go, directing teammates, using that amazing exclusive weapon etc the game would have been much worse for me... so I'm not sure if I even want to spend another 80 hours in that universe. For me, this was just right.

@SCAR392 RE is a good example. Another game I didn't play the series but loved RE4 so much because of the Wii Controls. Same thing with Mass Effect but game pad controls. Then I played more RE games, but none was as good as RE4.

The online portion is fun, I can still get some good matches throughout. Sadly, this is another game that is backlogged and is being completed during the weekend.

I understood the concept of a story and mission based combat game, but I didn't think it was executed that well.

I think side quests are usually what turns me away from these kinds of games. Side quests never affect games as much as I think they should, and I feel like the game is incomplete by choosing not to do them.

Well Mass Effect 1 is the most different of the trilogy. The difference between 1 and 3 is huge. 1 is an RPG with a few shooter elements. 3 is a shooter with a few RPG elements.
So ignoring 2 and 3 because you didn't like 1 is a really bad idea!

Converted from Sony to Nintendo during 7th gen and never looked back.

Yes, another one of my posts clarified that I ended up buying this at Game Stop for $9.

An awesome game, definitely. It's actually a series where I can truly say all of the games are outstanding in their own rights despite how different they ended up being if you line them up after the fact.

ME3 was pretty great, it's just everyone who cannot think for themselves got on the internet hate bandwagon and decided to hate the game before playing it.

Maybe the reason why I enjoyed it was because I paced myself good, and never went back on a good/bad choice.

Mass Effect is a great series and I would love to have played all of them on WiiU. I hope one day Nintendo can come up with there own RPG space opera series that can compete.

Currently playing Mario Ultra Smash Tennis, Donkey Kong 64, Ghost Recon: Wildlands and waiting patiently for mySwitch birthday present from my wife!!

Paid full retail price for the game (along with three others) when I bought my Wii U Deluxe model. I love ME 3 and have beaten the game several times. All for the sake of getting the best ending. It is also an amazing looking (and sounding) game for a launch title.

I find it a shame though since EA dropped support for the Wii U like a bad habit. There are developers that can push the system but stuck under the thumb of EA as a publisher. Sad as it sounds though, without EA, you have a big problem just like the Dreamcast floundered, EA cut ties for different reasons entirely. Sega had released the Saturn far too early which really was a bad idea since very few publishers were ready to get games onto the Saturn. The second was Sega dropping the Saturn entirely thanks to the work of Sony.

So on the bright side, EA did give the Wii U a chance. It's a shame that the future of the system may be Nintendo and Indies only in the years ahead. I had high hopes that I play games like Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty and Super Mario on a small lightly stylized box...

I do hope that the upcoming games will be enough variety for everyone. I've spent a lot of cash for this system and hope it doesn't end up as a "companion console" like the classic Wii had become and for everything else it was a choice between the 360 or PS3 to play all the mainstream games in the previous generation.

Never let go of the things you hold dear. Your girl/wife, your kids (if you're that old), and finally, your controller!

I picked up the game used but I can't say that I like it and normally I love RPGs. It's just that I haven't played one or two so for me a lot of things don't make sense. I went through the comic but I still don't get who the collecter is, what exactly the idea behind the reapers are, all these different characters and then the best thing was that they almost killed one of your crew members at the start and normally you'd care but I couldn't be bothered at all.

Then their are hardly any tutorials. I can't work that squad/level up screen. I've just been auto leveling up, choosing some squad members and press continue just so I can play. Then my crew members have these special abbbilites I think and I have no way of activating them. As for great gamepad use, they use it as an map, which is fine by me but it's so freaking unclear. While on a mission the objective marker is relativly noticable the moment you enter the citadel or normady you get this overal layout and are left with go figure it out. The same goes for the galaxy map.

Maybe the game gets better, maybe I just miss some knowledge but I'mm not really enjoying myself with the game.

Oh and the loading times are sooo long.

Everything can change, but I'm never changing who I am

I read online that you had to have a romance with her. I read the wiki, and it said you have to meet her at all the appropriate times, which I did, but she still died. Then I read another wiki where you have to complete the romance part of their interactions, so I'm more willing to believe that one. Whoever wrote the other wiki probably did the romance and didn't realize it mattered for the character to live. That's my reasoning, at least.

Ah so basically you need Mass Effect 2, would explain why I can't get that Krogan female to survive cause they keep saying I destroyed something in the previous game. Thanks

You had a choice in the comic book whether or not to destroy the research.
You heartless fiend.

I believe the only way to keep Miranda alive in this one is if you play as male Shepard and choose to romance her in the comic and don't break it off with her in ME3. To romance her in the comic you have to choose "move on from your old friends" or something like that.

EDIT: and of course you have to go to all three meetings, warn her about Kai Leng and give her access to Alliance resources.
