Liara > Tali > Garrus

#103 Posted by Dahill (10 posts) -

I'm surprised so many people like Jack, I for one can't really stand her. Ashley, Kaidan, Samara, Mordin, and Jacob are eh. Not a big krogan fan.
Liara is my love interest from ME1 so she's up there. Miranda's a decent character.

Never got the DLC, so I'd say very close between Thane, Garrus, and Legion.

Legion. He's so awesome. Since Bioware seems to listen to their fanbase, hopefully in ME3 everyone will be replaced by Legion.

On a character level nothing beats Garrus. He has an arc no other party member has (partly in due to being in both games) and he evolves from the first to the second. Events change him into a character he wasn't when you first met him. And the dynamic between him and Shepard is unprecedented in comparison to how other people are with Shepard. He just feels a lot more fleshed out than the other ones and he doesn't whine about stuff, which helps. 
Liara became (by accident actually) my love interest in ME and that actually turned a lot more interesting with how the second game unfolded (especially with the Shadow Broker dlc), so she is also quite a personal favorite of mine.  
ME2 have a lot of really cool characters that are really fleshed out in their own right but while they are so detailed, they don't have the history that those from ME have, or at least those that I enjoy. 
Honorable mentions; Legion, Mordin, Grunt & Wrex. 
Liked; Thane, Kasumi, Samara. 
DIsliked; Ashley, Kaidan, Tali, Jacob & Miranda. 
If we're talking Antagonists/Allies I really think Saren is at the top of the list with Sovereign and the Illusive man close behind.

I love the very fact that BioWare's games have large casts, even if some are a bit cliched.
I feel that Mordin is the most well-developed and portrayed character, that appeals not only to me but to a great deal of other people as well.
Personally, I like most of the ME characters. The only ones I disliked were Jack (trying way too hard to be edgy there, BioWare) and Jacob, but that's only on an emotional level. They are all fleshed out and played well.

Conrad broseph.  The dude needs a spin-off game in the worst way.

Tali>Garrus>Everyone else.

#113 Posted by Clonedzero (4206 posts) -

Garrus i always use him, he's been my favorite character since i first got him in ME1, he's NEVER been out of my party in ME1 and i almost always have him with me in ME2.

#114 Posted by overlord_ofthedeadXD (84 posts) -

Garrus, Thane, and Jacob! So badass! :)

#115 Posted by brownsfantb (426 posts) -

They're all so good but my favorite has to be Garrus. I take him on every mission with me.
Although I also like Wrex, Thane, Moridin, Tali, Joker and Kasumi.

#116 Posted by SpacePenguin (490 posts) -

Garrus> Wrex > Mordin
I always try and get Garrus in my squad, ever since the first game :)

#122 Posted by blueaniman93 (620 posts) -

#126 Posted by Obsidian (347 posts) -

#130 Posted by BerserkingGuts (89 posts) -

Toughin', but I'll choose: Saren, Tali, Illusive Man, Kahlee, Thane, Mordin.

#131 Posted by csl316 (11881 posts) -

Tali is awesome.  Garrus is just cool.
And in ME 2, Miranda was pretty much the perfect squad mate.  Useful in combat, had connections, ready to hook up when necessary.
Oh, and Mordin.  Wish he survived my mission : (
Oh, and Thane.  Damn, so hard to choose, lol.

#132 Posted by Rudeboy217 (1791 posts) -

#141 Posted by Hilikus (285 posts) -

My main man Garrus.

#142 Edited by freedo (126 posts) -

Wrex, Legion, Mordin, and Garrus. Garrus was probably the party member I used the most. He was also one of the four dudes that died on the suicide mission. That was a giant "NOOOOOO!!!" moment and, funnily enough, made the ending better to me.  

Wrex is the fuckin' shit. I didn't even play ME 1 and he's still my favorite character. He better have a bigger role in number 3.

#143 Posted by Pumpeho (51 posts) -

My Shepard!
Other than that Legion, Wrex, Mordin and Liara. Hackett comes on a corner for having a sick voice.
Legion and Wrex are just badasses.
Mordin is sort of witty and have a story thats interesting to me.
Liara saw some character evolving between ME1 and LotSB, yet stayed in her intellectual persona.

#144 Posted by InternetCrab (1581 posts) -

Tali :D

#145 Posted by ikwal (233 posts) -

Tali and Mordin are my favorites. Garrus is also pretty cool. Well when I think about it almost all characters are great.

#146 Posted by LiquidPrince (16637 posts) -


#147 Posted by obtainium (13 posts) -

Mordin all day long

#148 Posted by phrosnite (3513 posts) -

Liara T'soni

#149 Posted by QKT (254 posts) -

Garrus, cos the moment i met him in the council building and says that he wants to investigate saren, im like 'yeah bro!' and the he compliments my shot in the doctor's place. 
also nihilus.

#150 Posted by Hargreaves93 (267 posts) -

Garrus just because he looks cool and his personality is interesting. A C-Sec officer who wants the powers to go beyond the law to bring justice to the galaxy but he always wants to do the right thing in the end.
