I don't entirely agree with the part about Bastion.
As for ME, I never really thought of it that way. I guess it's kind of true that it does reveal how meaningless all of your choices were. That makes me sad. But it's hard to argue against.
Many people do realize that ME3's choices equate to nothing. But what most people are dishonest to realize is that Mass Effect has always been shit, especially compared to the superior and underrated Alpha Protocol.
I mostly agree with the video's points but it hugely undermines the merits of the franchise. People were never in it for the shooting or choices. It was always about the setting and the characters. There is always great charm in them and that's where most of the nostalgia's at. ME3 is the ultimate high school reunion for fans of the series. By 10 years no one would remember how shitty the Mako controls are and how the choices made little variation -- it would be the rich universe and cast of characters that will stay with gamers for the longest while. I personally is content with the ending because for all the series' worth it was the experience.
And oh please, I beg to differ for people defending the "superior" Alpha Protocol. Don't even pretend it played well. The endgame was just as rushed as the ME3 ending was, instead of which colour explosion you like, it's who you want to punch in the face and which chick you want to ride off into the sunset with. I do admit it had its charms, being able to do legit spy shit. But otherwise, it's not a superb RPG you think it is.
I... kinda agree. As much as I love TES, it was always because it felt lived in and me being the hero. Now everyone's has a stupid ass name tag (xxblademaster71) on top of their heads and everyone's "the hero". I'd still want to discover the world though.
