either way, skyrim is one of the best games i have played on ps3, and i hated fallout 3 and oblivion, so you can imagine how much it has improved in gameplay! theres no way you cant love skyrim to be honest even though it has countless bugs, the beautiful world and all the stuff you can do in it makes up for it.
also, if you can platinum skyrim, it will definitely be one of your proudest platinums.

So are you done with PS3 gaming now? If you're over on the Triple Sixty now, I'd go for the Mass Effect series, that way you can play the original one as well as the 2nd and 3rd.
That's what I was thinking, but I already know I like Skyrim. Was hoping to hear some opinions of Mass Effect, in a context with Skyrim, that might make it easier to swallow buying/paying for three games (even though 1 and 2 should be pretty cheap).

ME3 had a terrible ending that pissed off a lot of people. Some fans even got together and made a group called something like "Reclaim Mass Effect." They were taking donations to send in so that there would be an alternate ending made for the game. The company has announced they are working on said DLC. So while I enjoyed the first two and three to the end, the ending is absolutely terrible because none of the choices you made had anything to do with it (except what color the explosion was). It might be better with the DLC but who knows.
The nice thing about ME is that you make choices in all three that effect the game play (except the ending) and will change how your story plays out. As in, who lives and who dies. All of your choices even transfer over onto the next game so it's not just something that is gone when you are done with one of the three.

For the record, I've found it on eBay fairly easily for around $20-25 new... and on NewEgg for $19.99/free shipping. Assuming I don't mind it's the "Platinum Hits" release... which I do but I'll suck it up to save some money lol.
ME1 just went up to $30 and is a rare find.

Mass Effect 1 isnt available for PS3, but ME2 for PS3 has a special comic that comes with the DLC. It explains the major events of Mass Effect 1. ME2 strays away from the RPG style, becoming more of a 3rd person shooter but the RPG elements are still there. ME3 is the least RPG based of the 3 games. All 3 are exceptional, though the ending of ME3 does the franchaise no justice.
Skyrim is one of the best games I have ever played. I have it for PC though, so I have the advantages of mods and other things, but it should still be great for PS3. The story is a bit weak but there are so many things to do that it's worth every cent.

If it's for the 360, play Mass Effect.

Blank friend requests are always rejected. Stating you are from PSNP doesnt mean you will be accepted either. If we don't chat here, and we don't play the same games, you'll probably get rejected.

I agree with polar_bear_dad78 in the sense that Skyrim held my attention right up until I was collecting the last shout for the platinum. It is a huge game, but it never felt like it was stretched, or repetitive. However, after playing for so long the lagging graphics, and occasional crashes became debilitating. If the game were to run smoothly, I would l would likely still go back and play every now and then.
On the other hand, the mass effect trilogy has, in my opinion, a much better story. I agree it did not end the best it could have, but overall I still say it is one of the best stories put forth in a video game to date. The game play is good but not great, the online in ME3 feels like it was added because they needed multi-player (don't take this the wrong way, it is still pretty decent multi-player but just feels unnecessary). While you are in outer space, the game just does not have that awe sensation that Skyrim's environments provide. Nothing feels as huge and epic as it could have.
If you have already beaten Skyrim, but loved the style of game, and are unsure if you want to tackle the whole Mass Effect series (I would highly recommend playing them in order) I would actually recommend you try Kingdoms of Amalur. It is the same fantasy type world as Skyrim, and also has a great combat system that flows very nicely. While it does lack the epic and vast feeling of Skyrim (even though it may actually be a bigger map) it is still a great game, and provides lots of entertainment for a long period of time.
In conclusion, the Mass Effect series is absolutely worth your time if solely for the story, but must be played in order. Skyrim has much more depth and vast environments, but very buggy play. Kingdoms of Amalur lacks the epic feel of Skyrim, but I would still highly recommend if you are a fan of that style of game.
Hope that could be of some help.
