Ok, I had to find an excuse to brag a little about this: After the news came of the full Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster coming, I decided to have an original trilogy full playthrough, because it was almost 5 years since I last played a game in the series (a failed attempt at an insanity run on ME 2). I wanted it fresh in my head when the remasters came. So I started fresh using my 360 copies on my Xbox One, and decided to bump up the difficulty on the first game above I ever tried before. Still, I found it too easy. (A little context; I tried ME 2 on insanity because I made a full Dragon Age Series run on nightmare around that time, decided to check is I could on ME 2 as well, but failed and bumped it down to veteran). So I begun on veteran again, and applied the ideas I used on the DA run; control my squadmate powers directly, scout every new enemy wave for high priority targets to focus-fire early on, guarantee a debuff specialist always in my team, and added some new mass effect specific new tactics, like changing ammo types more frequently to deal with specific defenses and prioritize heavy version of ammo powers instead of the squad version. It was so easy on veteran with those new tactics that, still on Omega, I restarted and tried a new insanity run on ME2; and this time, it worked. Five years ago, insanity was gruelling difficult, taking too long, no fun, and I gave up on the first collector's base. These last few weeks it was just right, and I finished the game last night, grabbing in the process the last two only achievements I had left, both difficulty-related. Feels great to be able to beat a difficulty that bested me before. Specially because I don't usually like artificially high, unfair difficulties, and play games on normal, or slight above normal (only games I ever finished on maximum difficulty are the 3 Dragon Ages, Witcher 3 and now Mass Effect 2). So, my question is: what is your most proud gaming accomplishment?; some difficult level you completed? A trophy/achievement perhaps? Some multiplayer tasks you excel in? Beating a game I a way developers didn't anticipate? A speed run, a solo run? Share the tale of your proudest gaming moment! Couple of extra questions for mass effect players: have you guys tried the higher difficulties? I wonder what is the base of players that bump it up. Also, I began ME3 right after and I guess I never really tried one right after the other, because I noticed the gameplay mechanics improvement much more accutely than ever before. The evolution is not as dramatic as that of the jump from 1 to 2, but it is greater than my memory told me. Did you guys also perceived that ME3 is, mechanically-wise, a far better game than ME2 (though two still is my favourite because of story and pacing). Regards .
