It's been 13 years since Mass Effect 1 was released. There have been no true follow-ups (we don't talk about Andromeda, not that it counts anyway), until BioWare revealed at The Game Awards 2020 that it was working on the next chapter.

Before that, however, we'll have a chance to revisit the original trilogy with Mass Effect Legendary Edition releasing in May. It brings together the original trilogy, complete with almost all of the DLC, in 4K and with big visual enhancements.

In anticipation of the same, let's take a look at some of the best moments from the series.

The difference between ME1 and ME2 is the commitment to side characters, I thought the ending to ME2 made sense and was in position to end the series and everyone wanted ME3 and you ended up getting a trash, bad business decision by EA and Bioware.

I love the entire Citadel dlc, but favorite moment in the Mass Effect series is after you romance Tali and you find her at the bar getting drunk.

Spoiler Alert! I'd much prefer going into these moments as if its the first time I am seeing them when ME: Legendary edition comes out

I'm not watching any of these. My memory of the games is foggy (especially ME1) since I didn't replay them after the original playthroughs and it would be nice to discover some things again. :)

I mean for me I don't think I have EVER replayed a console game before....but for Mass Effect this will be only my 2nd playthrough.... :messenger_grinning_squinting: though I must admit I think late-last year or the year before I did watch Mass Effect 1 as a movie...but I don't exactly recall it scene for scene..

Mass Effect 2 was were it really felt like Bioware was firing on all cylinders. Story, design, combat, music all felt cohesive. The last boss fight was ehh....but leading up to that point, the suicide mission, felt amazing. ME2 was peak Mass Effect, kind of a slow start in ME1 and a fizzle of an ending in ME3, but there was some great characters in all 3 games.

Loved the series, but tbh, the ending 3 left a sour taste in my mouth and I felt like replaying would be pointless because nothing drastically changed about the end. Still, what a fun sci-fi series and I really hope to see them get back on track with whatever comes next.

Ride along with developers of the original Mass Effect and new devs from the Legendary Edition as they watch and react to an incredible playthrough by speedrunner Mike__Wave. The developers commentating include Renata Cronin (Producer), Crystal McCord (Producer), Kevin Meek (Environment and Character Director) and Brenon Holmes (Technical Design Director).
