hay there just wanting to know what moments if any have affected you on a personal level,like losing a friend or lifes lost loves.
For me it was when the female krogan was talking about having and holding her stillborn baby,this moment made me cry as my wife and I lost our third child being stillborn.
In that moment it galvanised me to curing the geno***e not for war assets but to feel not so useless.
Now on a lighter note geth pulse rifle+unlimited ammo+no reload+increased busrt=minigun,and jacks nipples

Character deaths hit me hard.

Mordin's death was hard for me, but the manner of his death made me feel proud rather than sad. I miss him, but I know it had to be done. Thane's nearly brought me to tears. It's kind of sad to admit, but there it is. I know that if the timeline had been kept as BW had originally written it he should have been dead by the time I saw him anyway, but still. I even felt my chest tighten when it looked like Grunt was going to die, but then I cheered out loud (yes, literally) when he came stumbling out of the cave.

Legion's "death" didn't really affect me though. Even though I really liked the character, I knew he wasn't really dying. Sure, he wouldn't be Legion as we know him any more, but all of the programs which made up his individual personality would still exist in some form, giving the Geth as a whole a new freedom to evolve and do as they wished. At least, that's how I see it.

Hmm... what else. I dunno.... ME3 had a lot of defining moments which felt personal for me, it's difficult to choose other than the glaringly obvious ones like deaths.

i get so involved with some games that even when i'm sleeping i'm going over strategies in my head as i'm about to fall asleep. in ME3 i often find myself in the Docks Holding Area..its like i'm a part of the citizenry of the Citadel. and i certainly wasn't counting on team mates dying in ME3 and me getting so perturbed by it.

i actually felt shaken when Mordin died. i always found him to be a heady mix hard-core intelligence and humor although he never tried to be consciously humorous.

the loss that shook me the most was that of Thane. all through and through i found him to be the very epitome of dignity even in the face of death. all through ME2 down to ME3 i never heard him raise his voice or use a cuss word. always maintaining composure and calm at all times even though he knew he was dying. what do u say to a guy like that. till the end he did his part to the best of his abilities. i was so moved when he passed away.

and yes...being my love interest in ME2 i did mourn the loss of Miranda. i really wish i had explored that relationship or had the chance to do so in ME3...but...

Well for me.

The two deaths in my first run Mordin and Thane. Mordin made me think of myself in a strange way. His principles are just like mine. Was there for something that he did or took part in and will be the one to end it or pay for it at the end. A proud fine death in my books. Will always remember him for that.

Thane just his way of thinking how he acted and that he always gave my life support room a creepy feeling. Even when dieing he still helped. A true fighter warrior down to the end. Heck even the death bed scene was hard on me. I personally have lost friends and some have gone while laying in the hospital bed. Just to be part of the final moments. Heck I wanted to take Colchek under my wing and guide him as like in a god father role. When I think now. I wonder what he is doing right now with out his father.

As benduhova said about the still born's that is always a hard one on me. I was there for a friend cause her man would not and it ended up being a still born. It is a very hard thing. No race should have something like the genophage put on them. Even if they where evil bigots or racists or constantly fighting. So I went with the curing it. Which lead to my first point with Mordin.

There is many more. Like the moment watching the thresher Mawl attack the Reaper Destroyer. That was awesome. Even when I destroyed the Destroyer on Rannoch (click the links to see ---> Link)

Plus standing on Rannoch with Tali. Thinking of what it would be like to build a home and live with her. Which is a thing at the moment for me cause I have my Girl Friend and its serious between us. So it kinda makes me think tali is her and am fighting for her home.

But! One major one that sticks in my mind is where I saved Anderson from being shot while he was on his knee's. I sat down next to him and we looked out onto earth from the citadel. (click here to see ---> Link) Just before Anderson die's. That there is a defining moment to fight along side my master or boss, chief. But to lead to one defining moment before he die's. A moment that would stick with me forever. Yes I would and will miss him. But its always been a thing for me where your master die's in combat a defining moment.

I could probably go on and on about many of them. Heck I could go one about the space battle scenes that stick with me. They remind me of Starwars and Freelancer. OK yeah the Quarrian and the Geth space battle. (click the links to see ---> Link - Link) Just epic.

Then the battle at earth. Man it was intence and exciting was loving it. Heck I had to think hard just to take screen shots of it. (click the links to see ---> Link - Link - Link - Link - Link) Such an epic battle many races together fighting for one thing with one enemy. The right to live!

I am sure I have missed ones that are still in my noggin. But dam the game and story is just perfect.

**Note screen shots are all taken by me, via my x-fire and are stored in several places.**

yea...i know i cud've. but i got so carried away with all the quests and the side quests that maybe i just didn't give it enough time and attention. and for the most part i was quite conflicted which relationship to pursue. second time around i'm going to be doing things a bit differently.

In addition to my previous post, I'd say the humour laced throughout the whole game is one big defining moment. In a game with such a serious story, with billions dying every minute you're racing around the galaxy, the story could quickly get very emotionally and mentally draining.

However, despite the severity of the situation, there's still time for little jokes with the crew, or taking 5 minutes to play a game of chess, or just to hang with a friend shooting bottles, or encouraging a friend to get together with someone he cares for. Best of all, these moments don't stand out as wrong they're so seamlessly written into the story.

Best examples are the scenes with Garrus Tali, and Ash. With Garrus, I actually found myself smiling, and even laughed along with them. It's two friends grabbing 5 minutes away from the death and destruction, before they throw themselves back into it headfirst.

With Tali, the scene where she's drunk in the lounge is funny, and the banter between her and Shep is great. But despite the humour, you know the reason why she's drunk, and while it's funny, it also reminds you of why you're fighting. Same with Ash's scene.

lol yeah the tali scene was just minted. I forget what she called the straw. But I laughed my head off. She was right off tho at Miranda in a way I felt.
