It´s called a third person shooter for a reason my latin brother
Technically it's an "RPG", though Mass Effect 2 was a little too far from that
Take my soldiers as an example. All of them are spacers(living in space means he´s more opened minded about aliens, but at the same time makes it very hard to get caught in a eezo spil, therefore no biotic tendencies), and all of them are war heros(I think that only guys with a specialization like soldiers or adepts would be capable of holding the line on Elisium). Most of my soldiers(2 out of 3) date aliens, namely Tali and Liara(the other soldier is for Ashley for the similarities in background) .
All in alll, I´m a sucker for being the boy scout comando that likes to fuck the blue/masked /military chicks
Congratulations on knowing your lore ! Though I think one can rationalize how a spacer would or wouldn't get biotic tendencies, in any case, nice set-up you got going !
For my part, I may be on the minority, but my main Shep was born on the slums of Earth, and is also the butcher of Torfan, yet he is also full-paragon, usually I played my Sheps as Earthborn sole survivors, never liked the War Hero profile, too clean for my taste.
But later, as I played more and more, there was something about the whole deal with Torfan that just sounded intensely dramatic to me, and I chose that as my main psych profile.
Oh, and I´m "faithfull"(the quote marks are because I´m talking about virtual characters,not making a joke with what you said). I have one save for each love interest.
Well, I said "faithful" because it strikes me as odd that people think of choosing any of the ME 2 LI's as "cheating", to my knowledge, a relationship has two sides.
If someone believes you're dead, and has moved on, then how the hell can you be cheating ?
I´m not gonna go on the details or else this post is gonna be huge, but Renegade file apart, I mostly save the council, spare the rachnii, and blow the Collector base to shit.
I love The Illusive Man.
But I also hate that sonuvabitch ! No way I'm giving him the Collector Base, pains me to no end that it had to go to waste, but the risk is too high, Cerberus is simply not ready for that kind of knowledge.
And from the looks of ME 3, it seems like we made the right decision
As for the rachni decision (whom I also spared), I fear Bioware doesn't cop-out on it, I liked how well-written the scene with the asari on Illium was, but for ME 3 I better see some goddamn rachni in the flesh !
And after previewing my post I think it goes without saying that these are my favourite games?
Mine too man, I absolutely LOVE this series, my greatest fear right now is that EA keeps juicing it after ME 3 and decides to make more games without Bioware's involvement, which would suck horribly.
Also, I want Miranda for permanent squadmate in ME 3
