Here's Why Mass Effect's Villains Were So Excellent

Kotaku - Sometimes it got difficult to remember what evil looks like in the Mass Effect games. (Mass Effect, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

And so wasted since the story became secondary to shooting and character scenes.

Sovereign/saren were the best. ME2 didnt have any antagonist other than "assuming direct control". And well we know how bioware drove the trilogy into the ground soooo. Enough said.

ME1 & 2 had interesting villains, ME3 not so much.

TIM was a truly interesting villain, but in the end he was reduced to a confused blubbering fool.

Kai-Leng was a cowardly and annoying guy who looked cool but really wasn't. I remember the first time I saw him I thought 'Wow, now he is interesting', but then he started talking and I thought 'Oh, never mind, he's just a douche'.

The reapers were scary and cool until they weren't anymore. Another villain reduced to pointless thanks to bad writing.

Strangely the only villain I kind of liked was the clone from the DLC. Sure it was a clone, and the mission was too short to really get into it, but the idea of an evil clone actually made sense within the ME universe.

In the end ME was a great series that was totally devastated by a few bad writing choices. After all the drama died down, I went back and replayed the full series, and although the ending still let me down, I still think it is an adventure worth taking.

I think totally devestated is an overstatement. The 3 games are all some of the best games this gen. A moderate ending to a great series doesn't ruin the series.

Personally I think the ending was horrible, though the EC slightly improved it, and the Citadal DLC improved it slightly more, I still find it highly disappointing, but I can respect that others may feel differently.

That first time when you speak to Sovereign. It always sends chills down my spine. The voice itself is just pure evil, hate and disgust towards organic creatures. One of the best moments of Mass Effect.
