We’re back with our month-long Mass Effect challenge! For previous days, click here.
Mass Effect Month, Day 2: Do you like m!Shep or fem!Shep better? Why?
I mean, they’re practically the same character with just a different skin on them, so they’re both pretty awesome, aren’t they?
But I really love fem!Shep, I’m not going to lie.
Honestly, there’s no real Earth-shattering reason I like the female Shepard over the male Shepard model. I really love Jennifer Hale’s voice, and although Mark Meer did a decent job, no one could touch Ms. Hale in regards to quality of performance.
Besides that, I suppose it was nice to be able to play as a female character who really had no reason – quite literally – to be female. She could have just as easily been a man, and the story would have progressed similarly. I think from a macro view, that’s a great female character – one that isn’t a woman “for a reason.” And, in the case of a super-soldier like Shepard, it at least made sense for them to both be equal in regards to physical performance and aggression. Also, her armor actually looks like armor.
From a more self-indulgent perspective… C’mon. Samantha Traynor.
