when did sales number equal quality?

I liked the "shooter" combat in ME and I am one of those people who don't like FPS games. I think Bio did a good job converting "shoot" combat to RPGs in that, unlike proper FSP games, player skill (player dexterity, reflex etc) doesn't matter much. I think Bio should be commended for trying a new type of combat in RPGs.

However Bio did dump downed the RPG elements in ME games, more so in ME2 than ME1. This is the bit that I don't like. If they kept the RPG elements in addition to "shooter" combat, I think I will rate ME games in my all time top 10 list.

So on balance I think I agree with vurt, ME games are so-so RPG/shooter and they did *feel* like half-assed attempt to attract RPG and FPS games for more money. If they have kept the RPG elements, then it would have been great RPG trying a new combat mechanic.
