Favorite character in the Mass Effect series?

#1 Posted by Robiin (297 posts) -

Okay, topic.
Since this game might have the most interesting universe in gaming, I think that people get "attached" to ceratin characters. Which one is your favorite?

In my opinion:
Thane > Mordin > Wrex
Thane is just so cool, and has an awesome voice!
Mordin talks funny, and is a great contrast to the rest of the characters.
Wrex because "Shepard."

Probably Tali, Garrus, Mordin and Thane.

 Legion > Garrus > Miranada
when i first came across Legion i was like "NO FUCKING WAY!".
Such a cool character.

#4 Posted by samcotts (2265 posts) -

Legion, Garrus, Mordin, Thane and Wrex are all great. 
Favourite out of those, not sure really, probably between Garrus and Mordin.

#5 Posted by Robiin (297 posts) -

People seem to like Legion, can't wait 'til I meet him/her/it :D
I haven't completed the game yet, done most of the loyalty missions and are doing the last ones right now.

Captain Kirrahe.

Garrus is my homeboy, I get him to go on like every mission.

Garrus >Thane > Legion > Jack
The stuff Garrus does in ME2 makes him a total bad ass.

Legion > Garrus > Wrex > Mordin > Thane > Annoyed Bouncer

I haven't met everyone yet, but so far Mordin is amusing and relatable.

@JustTheDoctor: hold the line.
#12 Posted by Jams (2967 posts) -

Garrus and Thane are my favorite. I can't really choose between the two.

#13 Posted by Dustpan (1694 posts) -
@damswedon: The line must be drawn here!
#14 Posted by Aaox (1658 posts) -

Garrus, Wrex, Thane, and Mordin are all great. Tali's cool, too.

#15 Edited by WonderboyCoz (153 posts) -

Garrus is probably my favourite, after all he does have... "reach".
To be honest I liked all of the characters in ME2, all of them interested me in some way unlike Ash and Kaiden from the first game.

#16 Posted by Jost1 (2078 posts) -

Garrus probably.

Tali > Wrex > Legion > Saren
Saren made Garrus look like a boyscout in the Revelation novel.

Legion>Moridin>Wrex>Garrus>Tali>Grunt>Thane>Maranda>Liara>Jacob(Fist bump)>Samara>Jack>Kadin>Ash...... Zaeed not included.

#32 Posted by ApertureSilence (1157 posts) -

Miranda, just because she's the hottest video game character I've ever seen.

#33 Posted by Wildfire570 (719 posts) -

My new favorite character is Garrus, because he went from good cop, somewhat crazy cop who is cooking fools with his sniper. I don't know about you be seems somewhat more crazier then he was in the first one. And I'm loving it.

#34 Posted by Pazy (2607 posts) -

I would say Ashley Williams, although she is essentially a Xenophobe (who seems to be a bit bitter by the end but I havent seen it for definate) they still managed to make her a really likable character who I was excited to see at the start of Mass Effect 2 and was saddened to discover that she apparently wont appear in the rest of it :(.

Garrus>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>everything else

Yes, they do make good love interests.
#37 Edited by Hitchenson (4682 posts) -

Tali, Wrex, Garrus and Legion.
Worst character however? Fucking Zaeed.

#38 Posted by shulinchung (183 posts) -

Its synthetic voice sounds like god!

#39 Posted by essaregee (573 posts) -

Captain Anderson 
'nuff said.

#40 Posted by JeanLuc (3620 posts) -

Tali, Garrus, Wrex, and Mordin, and Legion. 
not sure if I could a number 1; Maybe Tali.

#41 Posted by Solver (1 posts) -

I really enjoyed all the characters of Mass Effect, but I must admit that Garrus is my favorite 
Seriously, if I were an alien I would so hit on him :D
#42 Edited by CL60 (16906 posts) -

I am in love with Legion!

#43 Edited by Daveyo520 (7165 posts) -

Garrus, hands down. He is the man. I love his sarcasticness. I also like he is always on the edge of going too far in the name of good and I am there to help reign him in and make sure he stays on the right path.
Wrex is second. They both stayed in my party through all of one and loved seeing Wrex in two.
Aaox is also right in Thane being pretty cool. I like his voice.

#44 Posted by StarvingGamer (8699 posts) -

It's that time of the week again eh?  Tali.

#45 Posted by benjaebe (2784 posts) -

This thread has returned from the dead.
Having just finished my first Mass Effect 2 playthrough since it came out a year ago (weird how it's probably been exactly a year since I last beat it), I'd say Garrus. Dude is a true bro. Tali and Samara are close though.

#46 Posted by BibleDoctor (698 posts) -

Captain Kirrahe.

#47 Posted by Milkman (17589 posts) -

Probably Mordin for me. 

#48 Edited by Doctorchimp (4062 posts) -

Too many to count...
Wrex, Mordin, Garrus, Thane, Liara, Legion.
In that order.

and Garrus

I loved her ever  since saving her on the 1st game. She had some great moves, and her quirkieness  made her fun to be around on the game.
