I used to love it when they did that, well before I played the game.

100% agree.

A) Male Shepard. It felt more canonical to me, as that was the Shepard in the advertisements and on the coverart. I did find it neat that in 3, they did those things with Female Shepard as well. If they had done that in the past, I haven't seen them.

B) Kasumi from 2. Holy hell she was so cool. She was just an interesting character to have around. He statements about Jacob made me laugh. I thought it was cool that I could talk to her without trying to fuck her. She was also super cool in combat. Shadow strike? Yes please.

A) Female because so many people on this forum talked about the voice acting being better for the female Shepard before I played the game.

B) Wrex because he's a bad dude and fun to talk to.

By the way, Wrex, Mordin and Legion are my other two favorites. It hurts every time I walk past the memorial wall in Mass Effect 3!

I hope that's not a spoiler.......

EDIT: Unless you made a certain choice in ME1, then carry on.

1) Male Shep. With his current look he looks like a adult film star with his mustache and hair style. That's how you run and save a galaxy!

2) Tali, I always enjoyed her persona and her quests in ME2 made me really want to keep her around.

A) FemShep, for the reasons stated above. Really enjoy Hale's voice acting.

B) Probably would have been Wrex, but I didn't have room for him in my party (Combat-wise, preferred the full biotics of Liara), so I have to go with Garrus. In my game, he was the one that 'made sure' of Saren, thus cementing his status.

FYI, I'll be picking a winner when I get home from work (so probably 6-7-ish EST). With luck, I'll be boxing and shipping it out on Wednesday on a lunch break.

1. Male Shepard on my "main" though I play the female one too. I think the reason is that I found the female Shepard's voice-acting jarring. . . her Paragon choice would be super sweet and light and then her Renegade almost sounded like a different person. Other people love her though, and I've heard her long enough that I like her too now. That's just how I decided way back in 1.

2. Favorite squadmate - Mordin Solas. He makes me laugh more than the other characters. I honestly switch them out a lot and Liara probably gets more play since she is my second favorite and she is featured in both 1 & 3, but I love Mordin.

A) I play as a male Shepard, mostly because that's how I started the game. I was considering a female Shep for my 2nd playthrough.

B) Favorite squadmate is easily Mordin Solus, with Wrex as a close second. Both characters are very different, yet feel very real to me with how defined their expressions and emotions are.

Closing the entries - thanks everyone for sharing! For your information, if there were 3 more entries, that third person would have won with a lot of 99!

My responses:
1) FemShep - I really do love the voice acting way more than the MaleShep.

Here's something really weird, but related. I created my FemShep a long time ago back when ME1 first came out. Fast forward to present day - I started dating a girl very seriously within the past month. I boot up ME3 and import my old FemShep and wouldn't you know, somehow my FemShep from back in the day looks uncannily like my new girlfriend. Like.. the resemblance is scary. I even showed it to the girlfriend and she was totally weirded out.

2) Garrus gets my vote for awesome squad mate. He was a little dry in ME1, but ME2 really turned it around for me. He's just the man. Not to mention my FemShep turned to him for "comfort"...

On to the results - in a Pinchy Giveaway first, there were 2 people who lotted the highest, a 95. I did a second roll as a tie breaker, and our winner today is Laughing Penguin. See results below! (How bizarre is it that Spectre-7 rolled a 7?)

THANK YOU! I was honestly holding off on getting the game at all for a while, even though I felt that pull... this is the best news I've had in a long time! THANK YOU!!!
