I wish EA (who have always sucked) and bioware (who have been sucking for awhile) would have stoped the cash grab and released all the dlc in the trilogy set instead of actually releasing more separate pay dlc and removing some that previously was included. I hate dlc so much. Femshep rules the milky way yo.
ME 1: Great game, some bugs bug overall great game.
ME 2: Almost a master piece. Played it 7 times.
ME 3: Did not even finish it, I youtubed the ending (you cant believe how smart I felt when I realized I did not waste more time).
ME 3 for me took away too much of the "non-combat" elements.
Half of the time I felt like I was playing a 3rd person shooter, and Im sure anyone who would call ME series a 3rd person shooter would be oversimplifying a o lot.
The worse offence for me of ME3 was how narrow the game story-line was.
ME2 was not open world by any means, but it did allow for some exploration, some dialogues etc.
ME3... I felt like it was the same simplification as from Dragon Age Origins to Dragon age 2.
Thats just my point of view, but Id never suggest to someone to play ME3, id tell them to simply skip it :D.
EDIT: About DLC: I simply wait till they are done with them, and buy at 50% price or less the full set.
HOWEVER! ME2, you need to buy bioware points? make anotehr account? link your game data with some server?
Kiss my black *ss (and Im white, but I needed the extra omph for the statement).
Worst part: its another thing you have to remember to do after formating a pc, or getting a new one: log in again, get the key, install it from bioware again (hope that they wont discontinue it at some point).
I dont use steam because they save little dolphins in their free time, but because I can format my PC, set to download 20 games, go to sleep, and be ready to rumble the next day. So... I sorta decided that anything that I need Origin, Ubisoft, Microsoft games, points, DRM and so on wont be on my PC.
