Mass Effect’s Choice System is Painfully Outdated

2021-05-19T18:38:23.000000Z

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition gives us all an opportunity to revisit a beloved trilogy of games, but in the years since Mass Effect 3 wrapped up, it's easier than ever to see the flaws in this genuinely brilliant series of games.

Some dated elements can be fixed: textures can be updated, and Miranda's camera angles can be tweaked to stop being so distracting. It's harder, though, to fix a decision-making system based on Paragon and Renegade choices that rob players of the very freedom of choice that the whole system was designed to offer.
