Has anyone played it yet?

PC Gamer posted an article giving suggestions on when to play what DLC:

It seems like the DLC was somewhat lazily integrated. They should have steered players towards an optimal time to start them or even kept them locked until a certain point in the story when playing them makes sense.

I never realized you could give him a happy ending!

I'm currently playing it and am somewhere in ME3, I'd say about halfway through. I've started in ME1 and that Shepard has about 90 hours on the clock now.

Overall I think it is a nicely streamlined experience and having it complete (all DLC) with the improvements made to ME1 en ME2 are worth it for me.

Still one of the best space operas for me

Yeah, but how many space opera RPGs are there? ME basically wins that category by default.

I prefer Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1 and 2 to Mass Effect.

There really aren't many even in contention. System Shock 2 could have if the series kept going instead of switching to Bioshock. Xenosaga? It's got a lot of great moments, but it has a lot of pretentious silliness, too - I don't think it can really compete with Mass Effect.

Knights of the Old Republic is the only other one I can recall that is in the same ball park.

System Shock is more sci-fi horror than space opera. The KotOR games and The Outer Worlds are the only other modern space opera RPGs I can think of. Maybe Starfield will fit the bill.

It's sort of crazy how few RPGs there are that use a traditional sci-fi setting. At least when talking about western RPGs.

I was thinking the 2 first KotOR games too. There are a few other Star-Wars games but they're shooters rather than RPGs.

There seems to be a large preference for the fantasy and post-apo themes in the RPG world.

I enjoyed ME1-3 a lot but couldn't get into both KotORs.

While I love fantasy setting I do wish we will get more space setting RPGs. There are recent/upcoming RPG titles set in post apoc and cyberpunk but none for space setting?

Starfield is the only one I can think of, and that's not releasing until 11/2022. It's from Bethesda though so I'm not sure if that's your style.

Did you play The Outer Worlds?

I used to dislike open world games but maybe its all changed since I enjoyed Valheim. I just wish new Starfield wouldn't cause motion sickness - its one of the reasons I dropped Skyrim.

No, haven't tried outer worlds.

I think you might like TOW, but unfortunately it's first-person only. I assume that's what causes you to get motion sickness?

Did you try playing Skyrim in third-person to see if that alleviated it?

Yeah, first person mode usually causes motion sickness for me.

I did try Skyrim in third-person which I found clunky and I still felt a bit sick even then :/
