Bioshock 2 is like Fallout: New Vegas. Not made by the same developer. Even more so probably, in Bioshock 2 the original devs apparently had no input or involvement whatsoever. Still supposed to be a solid game. Bioshock: Infinite looks awesome.

Mass Effect 3 is a blast.

Err... I didn't see that said Bioware. I guess I'm dyslexic. I could've sworn that said Bioshock.

No, I thought Bioshock was awful. Amazing graphics, cool story, but brutally monotonous, linear gameplay that just got dull and repetitive.

Fallout: New Vegas still has Bethesda all over it. But yeah, Obsidian Entertainment developed New Vegas. In fact, the odd game out of the series would probably be Fallout 3, considering Obsidian/Black Isle Studios were the original creators of the Fallout series.

And to be honest, while Fallout 3 has that classic feel to it which I will always claim is 'better' than Fallout: New Vegas, Bethesda kinda was 'off' of what Fallout really is. New Vegas was really much, much more accurate. But then again, by going out east to DC, the opportunities were endless for recreation without destruction in Fallout 3.

My odyssey to purchase a used copy of Mass Effect 2 came up short, so I'm just going to dive right into ME3 and hope for the best.

I was tempted to buy SSX as well, but I really want to pick up Final Fantasy VI again and finish it off before getting distracted with too many other shiny baubles

Turn off the game when you see a white platform....about 5 minutes to go in the game at that point but for the love of God TURN OFF THE GAME AT THAT POINT AND MAKE UP YOUR OWN ENDING.

I'm about 5 hours in, about half of which was just staring googley-eyed at the codex. Mentally its like an anaconda trying to swallow a cow.

Finished Mass Effect 3 the other day, the ending is fairly incoherent and out of place, but then again most game endings are (Bioshock, any Final Fantasy game I would argue have worse endings).

The main problem is that Bioware sold the Mass Effect series on player agency or at least the illusion of it. The story did well up until the end, there was a lot of closure for many of the characters in the game, with the best being Thane's (kick ass fight, though I can't imagine it having as much impact without playing 2) and Mordin's Genophage story. The ending's main fault is it lacks the character involvement which is the best bit of the series.

That said I don't think Bioware actually understand the strength of their own games, as the DLC for the previous games has in general been done, apart from the Shadowbroker content for the 2, the rest is relatively pointless, decent 3rd person shooter as it is, if that's all it was it would not be nearly so acclaimed.

My favourite part about the ending is how
 
it takes an entire universe you spend hours and hours being involved with over the course of the trilogy and then fucks it into oblivion. All the choices you made are wiped away in 5 minutes of sillyness. The entire point of this series was a rich universe where player choice can have dire consequences and then it just all gets wiped away out of your hands.

^agree, especially

 
if you choose the destruction path at the end, if you spent a lot of time getting the quarians and geth to share their homeworld, and all of a sudden to kill the reapers all the geth must die as well...it's inane.


Again to me it speaks of Bioware not really knowing why people like their games, which is a bit nuts really.

It's also a shame that you spend the whole game assembly the most kick ass fleet and army the galaxy has ever seen yet there is no obvious visual payout to this.
