The lights are on
I have the sci fi bug. I have already researched both games. Your guys's(or girls?) opinion?
Get Mass Effect 1 and Xcom ignore the other two ME games
Both excellent games. I would say ME Collection if you have to choose. Certainly both worth owning though.
ME2 was the best ME game. If you start with ME1 you will be compelled to finish all three simply because the of the storyline. I did not get caught up in the ending controversy - to me a good story is everything that comes before the ending - more of a "enjoy the ride" way of looking at it.
One issue I had with ME3 was not being able to port my Shepard from ME1/ME2 - I got connected to that guy and in ME3, I could not get the look right. It seems minor but it bothered me the whole game.
One day, I will start a replay of all three. When I play a game with "choices" I make my choices and play straight through rather than seeking certain results - I am thinking of playing as a female Shepard and it will be interesting to see how my choices change.
I played the XCOM demo, I did not get hooked.
Mass Effect 1 goes down as one of my favorite games of all time. The others weren't too bad either.
Get the Mass Effect Collection. Three games of that caliber for $60? That is a steal.
1# do you have any of the individual mass effect games?
2# what system do you have?
3# if you do do not get the ME collection unless you have a ps3 the this is the only way to Get mass effect 1 on a disk which i prefer to downloads.
43 the collection comes with all dlc for the first 2 games if you do not already have them.
Definitely Mass Effect !! :D awesome game series !
Get the Mass Effect collection I got it recently and loved it. They are very good games
Mass Effect, best games I ever play I never traded my copies.
Xcom Collection? Yes.
Mass Effect Collection? Also yes. The end of 3 will slap you across the face but other than that, it's a great series.
Just Xcom Enemy Uknown? It was fun but it was lacking a lot from the original games. Could've been better but maybe the Expansion comming soon will improve it. :3
Oh geez Mass Effect for sure!
I have the ME trilogy box set still in it's plastic. I cannot comment on X-COM but I do know that all my friends and the critics hail ME as one of the best sci-fy games of all times. I went with ME.
For me, just by playing ME 2 demo I would suggest getting the ME collection.
