IMO Fallout 3 had more graphically varied exploration, but the things to do are always the same. Mass Effect had superficially varied graphics and the things to do were always the same. Since I care more for other elements than graphics, the experience of exploration is just as bad in both games.
Um, no. In Mass Effect, the things to do really *were* always the same. In FO3, you have genuinely varied side-quests. You really have to stretch the meaning of "same" if you file, say, Agatha's violin, the stuff going on in Canterbury Commons, the Big Town sequence, and Them! "same" the same way ME's drive-around-and-blast-things-then-raid-an-outpost side-quests were "same."
