    But if that's where they were exposed to it, only makes sense that it would be credited. They didnt say 9gag started it, only giving credit to giving them knowledge about it.

    Man the controls were shitty in the first game. I don't remember it being this bad on Xbox but on PC it's a mess. I will say I do miss the size and epicness of the citadel in the first game. I also do miss the sound it makes every time you lvl. ME1 feels alot more like Knights of the Old republic than it does anything else.

    Because ME 1 was a direct response to KOTOR. (Lucas Arts dumped Bioware for the second game or something else, and Bioware said "Fuck that we'll make our own sci-fi")

    Though I don't mind ME 1's controls once I remap shift and Space back to their positions on ME 2 and 3. Without that though, I'll fumble a lot and die as a result.

    The controls are part of the reason I felt ME1 was the worst of the series. But the game was still awesome enough to tolerate the controls. It seemed that every time I wanted to go into cover, Shepard would refuse, but if I didn't want to go into cover, she'd cover by bumping the slightest thing.

    And yeah, I also had to do a little remapping to make it match ME2/3 lol. Had to remap grenades because I was reflexively pressing "R" to reload every time I got into cover. I know there's no need to reload, but sometimes I slip into habits developed by ME2 and . . . suddenly I throw a grenade.

    Haha, I've had to do the remapping too. It's too unbearable otherwise.

    Oh god this happened to me sooooo many time, R is the standart reload key for most game, and suddently grenade, also the grenade in ME1 are so small and noiseless I couldn't figure out what was killing me

    I actually disagree I think it's the best in the series because it has the most immersive value. I guess I'm looking at it because it was the first I played years ago but the entire experience was just the most immersive I've had of the whole series. The citadel is an excellent example of this. I LOVED running around that place. I was in AWE of it when I first played. The biggest disappointment in Me2 was how small and lean the citadel felt by comparison.

    I dunno, it's hard to explain personally. There was a lot about ME1 that I enjoyed and a larger, more real Citadel is part of it, but at the same time there's a lot more I prefered in ME2 and ME3. My preference for this trilogy is 2,3,1.

    Fair enough. I'd probably rate them 1,3,2. One of the nicer things in Mass Effect 3 was that I felt they brought some of the sense of wonder and exploration to the citadel.

    The thing that really gives the citadel the epic feeling and this cannot be stated enough if I feel is this:



    The song just fits so well I don't know.

    Brandon Keener, who voices Garrus Vakarian was in an episode of Castle.



    It was quite impressive.

    My thought of the endings :

    In the Red ending, yes, he lives. But at what costs ? He's probably really injured (but we don't know to what extent) and he just wiped out all synthetic life for the organics ones (and most importantly for the Humans). Even if he is alive (witch it seems to be the case here), it cost too much to end the war this way. It took a Genocide to end this war. It took his humanity to stop this war : Millions of life were extincted for that one can live. That's the renegade ending for me.

    In the blue ending, he takes control of the Reapers to stop the war. He, then, continues to live in a greater form, detached from its body of course, but to help rebuild what was lost and to make sure it never happens again. We still have to accept that the possibility for Shepard to control a physical form and interact with his former crew exists (cause we know a reaper could take control over someone). He can "live" forever, watching over his friends and other races. Help them to make sure it never happens again and that they will never have to fear : One life ended for millions could survive. That the paragon ending for me.

    The synthetic ending, the green one, is much more controversial for me. Yes he saved the galaxy by birthing a new species, but he also destroyed the one thing that really mattered : Choice. Choice of evolving, choice of being who they want to be. This evolution is forced on them. It's not a renegade choice, but it's certainly not a Paragon one either.

    Ah but Leviathan is a rogue reaper which means others could break away from "Shepard".
