An infographic was released on the Mass Effect Twitter, detailing the choices of all Mass Effect players world wide. It is quite interesting to compare one’s playthroughs with the general populace, and knowing just how wrong they are.
im in the 100% galactic readines, completed it on insanity, and also long service group! woohoo i feel good1
64% didn't have Wrex that blows my mind he's my favorite Krogan and I can't believe most people played as Soldier, Sentinel is where its at!
My boyfriend didn't have Wrex because he never played mass effect 1. His view on the krogan was completely different because Wreav was the leader. This made him believe that the Krogan were a bad race that lacked redeeming qualities. I was shocked and almost angry at him for thinking this, since I love Wrex and I love the Krogan. It is amazing to me how the entire interpretation of a major race in a game can be so different over one decision. A decision that is also difficult to pull off considering you need a high renegade/paragon score to save wrex (or do his character mission and get his armor).
I have Wrex and in ME3 and its the best thing i saved him back on ME1 as he's the best especially with the ME3 Citadel DLC! This infographic is awesome. I play as a Sentinel and there's not many of those around by the looks of what the stats ar saying.
I saved him in ME1 and thought he was an awesome character (along with the rest of the race). Still didn't cure the Genophage...
I didn't have Wrex because I couldn't stand him, nor any krogans for that matter, I find them annoying. And I've only ever played as an engineer in the single player. Not that it really matters as I don't use the powers much.
Some cool statistics.
Why do so many people play as a soldier... That's so bland
Because most people just blast through the menus to start playing. A lot of people didn't realize that playing a femshep was even there because they never paid attention to the menu options. Just default default default play.
I have to agree playing as a soilder is so boring. Im playing as a Sentinel and if you find the right gun either Paladin or the Suppressor you can blow up stuff just as good as soldiers with the added bonus of using hardcore biotics! LOVE THIS GAME!
Yeah, some of these stats surprised me... Vega being that popular over longer-term characters?
This is actually because he can't technically die canonically unlike the rest. If you have low EMS then your squadmates die while running to the crucible. James was probably rarely taken on that mission while the more popular characters were, explaining why they "died" more often than him.
And Vega was not a bad character, he was actually quite cool. It's hard to compare though, since there's those you get early and keep all along the game, those you only get really late in the game, those who can die halfway through the game...How could Tali be more popular than Vega when you can only get her near the end of the game ?
She can be more popular because she was in the prior titles...lol
Well, by more popular, I obviously mean "used more often in ME3" since that's what this stat is about. The fact that she was in previous game is completely unrelated. It doesn't take a Phd to figure out that a character every single player can use in every single mission in the game is going to be used more often (and therefore be "more popular") than a character who joins you only in the last third of the game, who could have died in ME2, and who could die soon after she joins you in ME3; whether or not she's more popular on message boards. That's why I said it's hard to compare.
Only 4% completed insanity!!! Damn, I feel special...
"8% of players did not cure the Genophage, proving that humanity is still good." Uhm, that's a bit uncalled for. It's an entirely logical decision to not cure it. All the facts are for it, the only reason not to is you don't want to shoot Mordin, which while hard, was necessary for the greater good.
This is Commander Sheperd and I approve of this article.
