The Mass Effect trilogy is my favorite in the history of gaming.

Can't help but feel that Bioware repeatedly overstated threats, painted themselves into corners, then simply wrote themselves out - if you want to call it writing.

Overall, they failed as story tellers, though often got character scenes rights.

I think that's a little harsh though I understand where you're coming from.

I wouldn't say they've failed as story tellers due to the end of the trilogy even though it was a huge let down. I think they're still very capable story tellers and hopefully will have learned from the last game in the series.

My issues with them utterly failing at narrative began with ME2 and the shuttle. Throughout that game - even in ME1 - there numerous forgivable flaws, but that wasn't. At least to me obviously.

Then again it was letting them get away with things like that which lead to the original ME3 ending.

Personally, I think that Bioware has made one of the most interesting sci-fi universes in any media. I was kind of upset with the ending but that didn't deter from the fact that Bioware has made one of the best trilogies in gaming. No matter what anyone else says, Bioware has done an excellent job and I thoroughly enjoyed every single Mass Effect game.

Loved the mass effect series, people who got mad at the story part need to get mad at something real

Mass Effect didn't succeed in its story as much as it succeeded in its universe and those who inhabited it. Any attempt to argue against that would be laughable at best.

The best game of this gen and this jewel has a Trilogy.
