BioWare fans: Your assistance is requested!

I'm working on a lil project and need the lay of the land among my fellow deviants. Over on my dA page - [link] - I've got a couple of polls going to ask your favorite Mass Effect and Dragon Age characters of all time, and I want to know what you think. You can hop over to my page for a quick poll vote or, if you prefer, tell me what you think here (and preferably why--I've heard some of the craziest explanations!).

Baldur's Gate and NWN fans feel free to talk about those games, too, if they beat out BioWare's latest productions for you!

I'm just about the most indecisive person on the planet--I can hardly order food at a restaurant without hearing what everyone else is getting and mulling it over awhile :stupidme: --so believe me when I say you're doing me a huge favor in telling me what struck your fancy about each of your favorites. I appreciate your input! :handshake:

I'll start, so you can see why I'm so hopeless: My most-used character was Garrus (he's the man! :la: ), followed by grumbly Wrex when he was available, but I love Mordin's wit, Thane's air of mystery/sadness (I'm a sucker), and the way Samara's impressive cleavage contrasts with her remote personality. ;P I also adore Alistair's humor and hints of darkness, even though he's supposed to be something of an upright, "good guy" character, Fenris's RAGE (it was pretty impressive), and all kinds of hilarious dialogue with Morrigan, Oghren, Isabella + Aveline, and Shale. As for NWN, Aribeth and her personal struggles & beliefs are what I remember best, and it was pretty amazing stuff for the time.

Hm...I think Garrus is an all time admirable character..humor...loyalty...badassery? I mean c'mon how can you decline that but away from more of the popular in demand I liked Wrex. I mean...he's just big badass krogran potraying a I don't give attitude HULK SMASH type of deal you know? plus he has a way with words that make me chuckle.

As for DA, Isabella and Zev. they are just a pair of fun. A bit up the alley with pervyness and adventures but I am okay with that, although Zev is a little too friendly, perhaps because he goes both ways. As for Isabella, she's just this assertive woman who I know has a soft spot in her heart but isn't willing to show it because she got a name to live up to.

I totally agree! About both Garrus and Wrex. Wrex seems so underappreciated to me. ;P

Sounds like you like the slick roguish types in DA, eh? I found Varric to be pretty suitable for that category, too!

Thank you for the input. =) It helps. :nod:

Wrex is all about that tough love,in ME3 he just grew so warm, it was such a progress , nice to see character grow.

Well I have a thing for Morrigan and Leianna too, Varric was enjoyable as well but it's really hard to pinpoint because they were all great and Anytime!

SPOILERS FOR PEOPLES!

He found out I was lying to him and leading him on about the cure for the genophage and confronted me on the Citadel... We got in an argument and I shot him dead! His body fell off a walkway and the C-Sec guys ran up and were like, "What happened?!" and I basically called Wrex some crazy stranger that attacked me and forced me to defend myself. They did the equivalent of shrugging and walking away.

This was me after that happened: :omg:

Also this (and what I did to Mordin) is my punishment for playing Renegade.

Joker has got to be one my favourite characters. Although he is not able to come on missions with Shepard he still plays a huge roll on my ship. His humour is wonderful in the times of darkness the Shepard encounters on all of the end of the world missions. Not to mention I think his voice actor is wonderful.

I know Kaidan has a lot of haters but there is something about him I love. Maybe it's the fact that he puts himself down and I like that I'm able to make him more confident throughout the games. His voice actor is also fantastic all the way back to the first KOTOR as Carth.

As for DA, Alistair is my man. I like that he's shy. I like that he doesn't really want to be king and you have the ability to make him into a great leader. I also think that any boyfriend should greet me with "your desire is my command."

You make some great points. The games can get pretty dark and Joker plays a big role in alleviating that and bringing things back to balance. I like Kaidan's voice actor, too! Nice and husky. =) I think it would be irresponsible if I didn't pay more attention to Kaidan my next playthrough. So far he's been a sympathetic character but I never got too close--I think I usually pissed him off by being irresponsible. =P

And spot on about Alistair! He's soo sweet. :love:

Thanks so much for weighing in! I appreciate the great feedback. :heart:
