Mass Effect 2 needs to be put in the final bracket. Simple as that.

I love Brotherhood, but come on. ME all the way

#3 Posted by Willza92 (269 posts) -

Oh man, Assassins Creed: Brotherhood is an incredible game, it really is just fucking amazing.

But it's not Mass Effect 2

Get the fuck out of here, Ezio.

Get the fuck out of here, Whoever The Hell The Main Character of Mass Effect 2 Is. Fergus? Let's Go With Fergus.

Indeed.

ME 2 will crush Brotherhood, rightfully so.

We should probably just give GotG to ME2 immediately. It's round 3 and it's still winning 4 to 1.

Another victim gets steamrolled by Giant Bomb's GotG.

Why not give it to a good game instead? :P

Mass Effect 2 came out in 2010, not 2009.

Also, Mass Effect 2 is the best game of the generation. Simple as that.

(I voted for Mass Effect 2)

I thought this was our chance to do just that.

I'd be alright with Mass Effect 2 to be honest. My number one choice is going to be murdered by Skyrim at this very moment so no luck there but ME2 is not far down my personal list.

Nope. Ride to Hell wasn't even on the list :(

I'm fine with Mass Effect 2 too, to be honest. I liked it quite a bit, but just not as much as the original. I suppose my number one choice is losing against Dark Souls...

Bayonetta got stomped by AC, but AC is free to ME2?

Matchups, yo.

#19 Posted by UitDeToekomst (729 posts) -

two fantastic games, but I have to lean toward Mass Effect since I find the fiction/storyline and character progression more enjoyable.

#20 Posted by Milkman (17172 posts) -

I really liked Brotherhood but I'm not sure how it made it this far. It's gonna get destroyed here.

#21 Posted by BigJeffrey (5139 posts) -

ass effect 2 was pretty good.

#22 Posted by tourgen (4542 posts) -

god damn I love shotgun blasting and charging with a vanguard soooooo much. Still replayed it 5 or so times checking out the other classes.

#23 Edited by Turtlebird95 (2561 posts) -

Glad Brotherhood's reign of terror ends here.

Playing an aggressive Vanguard was super satisfying in 2. It felt off in 3, however. Was really disappointing, but that obviously wasn't the most disappointing part of 3 by a long shot.

Anyway, ME 2 is pretty fucking good. I love brotherhood, but I think I enjoyed AC2 over brotherhood.

#25 Posted by Deranged (1856 posts) -

Sorry Assassins Creed but ME2 is arguably one of the best games of the past decade for me. Better characters, better story, better universe, the works. Only thing I'd say AC wins with is soundtrack.

#26 Edited by ArbitraryWater (11993 posts) -

You know, I'd be totally ok if ME2 just won all of this.

#27 Posted by ReTarDedFisHy (1069 posts) -

Didn't expect such a stomp!

I like both so I won't vote! :)

Mass Effect 2 is not the best in the trilogy. You recruit a party for 30 hours then fight a terminator. Wat?

#30 Posted by crithon (3440 posts) -

I still feel that contra 3 style boss in ME2 isn't well developed. There should be a more of progression of other over the top moments. ME2 is just a series of really charming one off adventures with your crew as you grow to love a couple of them like teenagers.

AC2 Brotherhood just keeps building and building and building, like that whole fight with the borgias is EPIC, finally the series got a boss fight it desirved. Rome is handcrafted with so much care, I love how much this didn't feel like a retread of AC2

And it's all basically a sidequest to the main event.

#32 Posted by a_randay92 (33 posts) -

Personally, I would choose Assassin's Creed Brotherhood over Mass Effect 2. I simply enjoy the AC franchise more than ME and 2 really didn't do much for me. Granted, it's been a little while since I've played Mass Effect 2.

I really enjoyed Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and I feel like it took all the great things about AC2 and refined them perfectly. I loved the addition of recruiting civilians who were tired of the Templar bullshit in Rome to the Assassin's Guild and training them to become master assassins in their own right. I thought Rome was absolutely gorgeous and I really loved upgrading the shops, banks, and major landmarks to restore the life back to Rome. I've always really dug the historical/pseudo historical elements from the AC franchise as well. Ezio is also just one of my favourite characters of this generation.

I preferred ass effect 3 but I respect your opinion

everyone knows Deadly Premonition is the real gotg.

I'd really like to see ME2 and Dark Souls face off against each other as the Finale to this whole thing.

Voting for Mass Effect 2 because it's a way to vote for the trilogy as a whole.

If a vote for Mass Effect 2 is a vote for Mass Effect 3, that would probably scare people off.

I appreciate the ambition of what they tried to do with the trilogy, even if they didn't ultimately succeed like we might have wanted them to. I find it somewhat hard to view them as independent games.

One of these has a genius, alien scientist that likes to sing Rodgers and Hammerstein. Enough said really.

You mean Gilbert & Sullivan, and it's a Salarian take on "I Am The Very Model Of A Modern Major-General" from the musical "Pirates of Penzance". You're probably getting mixed up with "Oklahoma!".

Mass Effect 2 was marvelously paced and I pretty much played the game to death, but AssBro holds a special place in my heart, if only for the fact I came across a wonderful glitch once where Ezio, in trying to do the air-assasinate switch between horses, missed the other horse, got stuck in his falling animation, yet continued to slowly glide up higher and higher above Rome.

Godspeed Ezio, you will be missed.

#41 Posted by Hunter5024 (5892 posts) -

I still don't understand why everyone loves Mass Effect 2 so much, I have some major issues with that game. At this point the only conclusion I can draw is that skipping Mass Effect 1 irreparably damaged my ME2 experience. Oh well. I'll save the real bitching for when this game is in the finals.

#42 Edited by Guesty_01 (382 posts) -

Assassins Creed.

Never have I been so underwhelmed by a game than Mass 2.

#43 Posted by Gatehouse (685 posts) -

@dudeglove: Yes, I totally meant that, thanks. Dang memory's not what it used to be.

#44 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3080 posts) -

Requiescat in pace, Ezio.

#45 Edited by falling_fast (2263 posts) -

I love both, but I think assbro takes it for me.

edit: whoa. ok...

mass effect 2 is a flawed game. it has the best action of the series, but mass effect 1 has the best story and best ambience. Mass Effect 2 abandons the space opera feel for Sometimes Very Dumb Action Movie In Space.

#46 Edited by NTM (7516 posts) -

I like the Ezio trilogy, one of my favorite this gen, but this wasn't a hard choice. Mass Effect 2 is fantastic, and that game; that trilogy, brings some of the greatest gaming memories to me, if not ever, at least this generation (though I think ever).

#47 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2287 posts) -

Mass Effect 2, the only game I can think of that had me buy all the individual DLC just so I can have more of ME2 to play.

#48 Posted by Jimbo (9930 posts) -

Tight competition between these two for GOTY 2010, but Brotherhood just edges out ME2 for me.

#49 Edited by hermes (1584 posts) -

It seems like I am the only one that actually disliked AC: Brotherhood, while enjoying a lot of AC2. I didn't like the changes they did to the game: the one button insta-kill everything on screen and the silent one hit crossbow look cool, but break the entire game, and I didn't care at all about the superfluous chests that only gave me money.

Mass Effect 2, on the other hand, is part of a great series and a great game onto itself.

#50 Edited by Karkarov (3229 posts) -

@hermes: No, I don't care for AC:B at all, didn't vote for it in the prelim don't understand why anyone else did. It is just AC 2 with extra features that honestly aren't all that fun to me.

In other news, see you AC brotherhood, nice knowing you. Just one more head on ME2's chopping block until the semi finals where it might face an actual opponent.
