During Bioware’s Pax East panel, which they reflected on their time on Mass Effect 3 they released a crazy stat sheet that details every player choice made (posted below). Were you renegade or paragon? Well it looks like 2/3 who played the last installment were paragon, leaving the renegade to be the minority.
I played through Mass Effect 3 as a renegade not because I wanted to be a hardass, but because I felt the actions it provide suited the scene. I wasn’t going to allow myself look back, and say what if I all I need to do to was pull the trigger. Regardless of what you thought about the ending, I still think Mass Effect 3 is a great game that wraps up the series nicely.
