BioWare are making some big claims. Mass Effect 3 is the best game they’ve ever made, says marketing boss David Silverman – which would make it one of the best games to ever exist.
Yep your going to say...I also remember a glowing review for DA2 by a member of your own staff(Bioware), This is just PR work nothing more nothing less move along...
Mass Effect has always rated higher than Dragon Age. Mass Effect 2 is one of the Highest rated games ever. Why wouldn't they think this is one of the best games ever? Its called having confidence in what you produce. I believe them cause Mass Effect 2 for me was one of the best games ever!
Exactly. I believe it cause I consider ME2 one f the best games ever. lol
you're right, it is PR work. but i believe that statement. i bought ME2 for both 360, then PC. still own it for both, actually, and still actively play on PC. ME3 will be stellar. no doubt about that.
well at least they are modest...
ME3 WILL be one of the best games ever and it WILL be the greatest RPG ever.
Highly, highly, highly doubt it will be considered one of the greatest RPGs ever.
Is it just me or has Bioware's attitude become really arrogant and grating?
I'm really hoping for that to be true, but i needs to see the new RPG mechanics. And heres hoping that the story gets a bit deeper, than the shallowness of the 2nd one. Question is that vega guy, the one that looks like a monkey is he the guy up on big ben when we saw the first trailer for ME3?
it a pity that shooter is one of the best games of epic rpg developer in past
I know David Silverman is just the PR guy but he is quite receptive to fan feedback. He is incredibly active on twitter and has even replied to several tweets from me. He also doesn't take anything too seriously. At Com Con this week he was messing around dressed up as Wrex. It is also thanks to David that they are now paying more attention to femshep too. However having said all that he is a PR guy so he is going to say "woo yeah Mass Effect 3 best game like EVAR". So far most of the feedback from those that have played it at Com Con has been pretty favourable. We just have to wait and see at the end of the day it would take a hell of a lot for Bioware to screw this up.
. Marketers are running out of ideas??? Just tell them it's the best ever and they will believe it...O_o
Hyping your game too far will only hurt you unless you try to exceed everyone's expectations. And what makes it even more impossible is the fact that everyone's "best game ever" is different. Oh well. I know I'll enjoy Mass Effect 3. That's all that matters to me.
I'm a huge fan of the Mass Effect series! :D Shout out to Chris Priestly from Bioware!
Umm if its so great why did it run away from a holiday release...i dont see uncharted running from bf or mw3
Actually, they extended it to give it more development time, which is rarely a bad sign.
Actually Star Wars The Old Republic is slated for release this holiday season. Why would a company release 2 of their biggest games in the same time frame? That doesn't make sense from a business standpoint. Oh and by the way, Uncharted 3 isn't gonna hit anywhere close to the numbers BF3 and MW3 will hit.
mass effect is a pretty good series i enjoyed the first two alot and lookin forward to part 3 me personaly never played those kinda games until this generation and i dnt play much rpg's on the whole but m.e thumbs up bioware
Oh c'mon just shup up
How about you first start trying to beat the Witcher 2 (emphasis on "trying")
You know the fanboys are going to say how come The Witcher 2 metacritic is not high as ME2. We all know damn well if ME2 was a PC exclusive the meta would not be that high.
yeah but a pity i dont care about the metacritic score of any game , so wouldnt know about it either way . @zinkabassy I dont think the witcher 2 suffer the comparison against demon souls or diablo 2 anyway . Baldur's gate on the otherhand ... yeah most likely
They sure are hyping up their game a lot lately. Well The Witcher series demolish everything bioware put out this generation. All i got to say is give CD Projekt RED is a better developer. Small budget and team and look at the graphics they put out bioware are shit when it comes to graphics and gameplay. Just give CD Projekt RED the same amount of budget money as ME3. @baka Yeah i know they did in TW1. Like i said in another post ME series is a rip off of star wars. Bioware live off their past achievements and brings nothing new to the formula anybody that played their past PC games knows this.
Hell Cd Projekt was even better at using Bioware own's Aurora Engine
Well, they'd be competing with such games as FFVII, super mario 3, metal gear solid, pokemon and zelda. They're what I think of when people say best games ever. So if it beats just one of them, I'll admit it. But who knows?
i think it's gonna suck, just because the devs are claiming that their own game is awesome
I like the look of me3 but I've never played any of them before. I think I win pic 1 and 2 up later this year and give me3 ago too. The but again there are far too many games I want the 2nd half of this year.
Its ok dude. This happens to a lot of people, myself included.
Mass Effect 1+2 are good games but nothing more. For me it's Demon's Souls ... until Dark Souls releases.
Excuse me Bioware but I'LL be the judge of that!! :)
Whats up with the title? It clearly says one of the best THEY ever made, not one of the best ever made by anyone. That this must be one of the best games ever made is a conclusion that the writer of this article makes, possibly to draw hits and put more coal on the fire. Lame!
“We’re making Mass Effect 3 to be the best game we’ve ever made,” he continued. “That would make it ONE OF THE BEST GAMES EVER, and we’re hoping to see sales that reflect that.”
apparently they havent played deus ex human revolution yet...
Well, the first two are some of the best games ever, so I won't dismiss this latest claim. It had better live up to my expectations, Bioware.
The first 2 are among my favorite, I don't really have a doubt the 3rd will join them...very excited for this and Skyrim
With due respect that i have for u, One of the best RPG developers(Western), who gave us many great franchises. They said "This is the Best Yet from Bioware" during Mass Effect 2 and they were right to some extent... Well, We just gonna wait & see bcoz U (Bioware) do know that this year we have 3 Mammoths (Deus Ex:HR & Skyrim & Dark Souls) so check ur game, design perfectly and then release. Good Luck Bioware, U need it to avoid the same fate of DA2. Cheers.
Mass Effect is and always has been a quality game. Its a different type of game as it mashes a bunch of genres together. Its a space opera and its loved because of the fact that there aren't too many other games like it. People can complain about the changes all day they are making to the series but IMO I think the series is going out with a bang and potentially this game might be their best game yet.
I remember seeing a few photos of Mass Effect and Too Human in EGM back in 2005. I had come off playing both KOTOR games, and considered them some of the best games ever made. Shame on you Lucas Arts for not letting Obsidian finish KOTOR 2 properly!! As I'm looking at the photos, the assault rifle Shepard had intrigued me, as I had not seen a rifle like that before. And the more I kept reading about Mass Effect, the more I became interested in it, and less interested in Too Human, thank God, lol. Fast forward to November 2007, a package from Amazon arrives on my door, and it's the Collector's Edition of Mass Effect, which goes for a crap load now on Ebay. And I tell ya what, I did a dine and dash at my friend's house after eating Thanksgiving dinner, cause I wanted to go play me some Mass Effect, bad!! I never had a game do that to me before, not even KOTOR. Bioware should get all the credit in the world for crafting a game universe, that in my opinion, rivals Star Wars. And to be honest, ME3 is my most wanted game right now. I mean I want it more than anything, and I even preordered SW:TOR last week. I have my male and female Shepard saves ready. And on 3/6/2012, The Reapers are gonna get a mudhole stomped in their asses...
