Both are great science fiction trilogies about defeating an ancient evil alien threat, and an intergalactic war. While both stories differ in scope, and in how they went about it, both got millions of fans worldwide.

What trilogy do you think is better? Halo? Or Mass Effect?

Heretic. OT: I can't say. A year ago I would have gone with Mass Effect but after the whole 3 fiasco I'm not really sure.

Halo lost my interest a long time ago. So, Mass Effect.

I've gotta go with Halo on this one. I did really enjoy the Mass Effect trilogy though.

Mass Effect is complete garbage, like most Bioware games, post NWN. Halo has been solid all around, so no hard decision for me.

3Guilty_4Spark3

Except they have totally ruined it with the last few games. Bioware games are Grade A, I have loved everything Bioware has put out. Do me even Dragon Age II stands head above heals more entertaining than any of the halo games.

Liked Halo 1 and 2, everything else in that series is trash. Even Halo 1 and 2 I would give a 6/10, 6 hour storymodes are not my thing. And I like actual characters with some depth to them. And more than just shoot, shoot, shoot, and shoot some more. Way more to do in ME, more advanced combat, dialog, story, characters, a universe brought to life and actually make you care.

Well one is solely an action-based game with few open ended choices.......the other is Halo.

Tough choice.

I haven't played the third Mass Effect yet but I love the universe and gameplay much more than Halo's so I'm sure I'd go with Mass Effect.

Why is it every trilogy has to fork it up in the 3rd part? Such a bad trend, like they put all their good ideas on the table in the first 2 and then just coast on autopilot for the 3rd.

Really wish we had more that matched Lord of the Rings' quality, where the 3 parts are forming a high quality beginning, middle, and end.

Lord of the Rings was filmed as one movie, split into three. The Dark Knight Trilogy was brilliant. Sure, Rises can be construed as the weakest of the bunch, but it's still a great movie, better than most other superhero movies, and very satisfying, especially for longtime fans. Yes, it doesn't live up to The Dark Knight, but what movie does?

I enjoyed Mass Effect series FAR more. That said, im biased because im a HUGE RPG fan, and not as much of a FPS guy. I do think Halo is way above all console shooters when it comes to gameplay and story though.

Then by any stretch of the imagination, so is The Dark Knight Rises, and it's a better film than Return of the Jedi in every way possible, from resolution of plot ends, to plot, to characterization, to music, to everything.

Ohhh! Hard choice. I went with halo though because of the desparation and mysteriousness. And the elites.

The elites have the coolest voices I've ever heard.

The overwrought plot that drew from over fifty years of Batman comics and resulted in an exposition heavy 2.5+ hour long film?

Because i consider the first and third to have RPG elements, and i LOVE the story in the series. I admit that its not a deep RPG as far as gameplay and stats, but its awesome just the same.

TDKR's plot was nothing but a bunch of inexplicable events and convenient coincidences. You know something is wrong when a movie like The Avengers actually ends up being more intelligent.

Have you seen The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 yet? It's soooooo much better than Rises with half the runtime. That's how Batman is f*cking done.

No, but it wasn't inexplicable either. It worked, and that was enough.

You know what wasn't inexplicable as well? The Dark Knight Rises. Which works better than Return of the Jedi at every level possible.
