So how about that Mass Effect 3? Regardless of the third game's drama-fest or how you personally felt about it, Mass Effect is one of the most impactful games (and series) from the last ten years. At PAX East this weekend, BioWare celebrates nearly a decade of Mass Effect -- around nine years, to be exact -- with a Mass Effect 3 retrospective.
There are two parts: an infographic showing how the Mass Effect 3 player population approached the game, and a video featuring the game's developers. The video gathers up some thoughts from a few of the people who made Mass Effect 3 possible, from lead writer Mac Walters to FemShep voice actor Jennifer Hale, plus several folks we don't normally get to see in game promotion videos, like lead artists and the like.
Speaking of Hale, did you know that only 18% of Mass Effect 3 players took the role of FemShep? Considering how wildly popular she seemed to be -- even getting her own trailer -- you'd like the percentage would be higher. Well, that's still a pretty damn good chunk of the population!
Other interesting and surprising facts? Well, a whopping 64% of players didn't encounter Wrex in Mass Effect 3, and Liara wins the popularity contest with 24.1% of players taking her out on adventures.
Some of the information isn't surprising, such as Garrus' popularity (just a smidge less than Liara), and Kaiden and Ashley's unpopularity. Soldier remains the top player class, too, while most players choose to play as a Paragon. Check the full infographic below.
