@sethmode: you made a comment both answering my topic and criticising it, I responded to both. If you didn't want a response there is no reason to mention it. Again it's been nice but I'm just gonna go ahead a block you.
@sethmode: I asked a topic and answered in my way and asked for others to provide their input. You're acting like I pretended to be neutral on the subject when I made it very clear what I thought and provided a theory as to why I thought some people disagreed.
Look it's been nice but I don't see this going anywhere so how about we just part ways?
I only played Mass effect 2 out of this franchise. From what I have read of Ashley, she does change and change her perspectives. I would like to know more about her back history and involvement in the previous Turian war.
And this, all people are worthy of redemption, even if they are incarcerated for life no parole, or worse. You do not escape accountability. But one can become a better person.
That said, her initial comparing aliens to animals, unfortunate in a few ways, would not endear me to her if I was playing this game for the first time. But they wrote her purposely as she is, so that in turn interests me. Also Wrex with his admitted piracy and murder of the Volus, and Garrus seeming to want to be going all 48 Hours and cut corners in his desire to bring bad guys to final terms, aren't wunderkind either. Kaiden actually asked a Big Question of the Councils thoughts and actions, but that deteriorated. I don't hear of Kaiden continuing to have observations and perhaps being in in-game commenter. Only that he is rather staid with some personal grief.
So what do you choose? Are Wrex and Garrus forgiven while Ashley is tossed? Really? How much does present drawing of arbitrary lines in contemporary life affect game choices? To the point they ignore/discard story arcs?
I'm kind of wanting to play this game now...
I gotta be honest until this thread I had never thought much about Wrex's piracy days and I kinda feel guilty about it.
You should totally play it btw I just started a new play through and am really enjoying it.
@sethmode: I had a thing I wanted to say and discuss in this place where people discuss things? I don't really get what your problem is here. If you don't like my thread you don't have to interact with it at all.
