Haha. Garrus is amazing.

Him and Tali are my favourite characters.

For some reason I always liked Thane Krios. Just liked the look and his backstory.

Tali all day.

Liara and Garrus are close seconds.

This is the right answer.

It depends on the mission and my Shepard but Garrus, Liara, Javik, & Wrex were my favorites. I warmed up to Vega and Tali in my second playthough of ME3.

Garrus or Wrex in either order

I rarely make a team without Shepard in it, so I guess I vote for him/her.

If that doesn't count, then this guy:

Yup. Always have a Krogan on your team, and you'll do well.

I will say I like Garrus best as a companion character(as much as I love Wrex he was a companion for one game and a single DLC and an NPC for the rest), in fact he's one of the top Bioware companions ever imo, mostly because he was one of the few to stick with Shepard almost without question throughout all three games and had some great character growth.

I loved his parts in ME3 (if you saved him).

If it were any other character I'd have shot the bottle. With Garrus I miss on purpose every time.

Thane is my favorite. Garrus, Zaeed, Kaiden, and Tali are great too.

Depends on the mission and game.

In one I almost always had Tali on my team with the third member being whoever I felt like at the moment.

In two I try to use everyone but usually lean towards Garrus, Tali, Legion and Samara.

In three again tried to use everyone but leaned towards Garrus, Tali and Javik.

Overall favorite as far as backstory personality etc I'd probably have to go with Tali.

Has anybody done the Citadel DLC with Garrus and Zaheed around?

Comedy gold.

I usually use Garrus for most of my missions, but in the end it all depends on the mission at hand.

Wrex and Garrus. Too bad they didn't give Wrex much of anything to do for most of the series since most people killed him off in the first game.

Having him around for the following 2 games was good enough for me after not killing him in 1. Knowing that jackass Wreav couldn't be clan leader.

He is doing pretty well on the poll.

Why would you kill off Wrex? That will bite you hard in the ass in the next two games. Plus its Wrex!

I picked Tali, but really the four aliens from ME1 have a shared first place for me. Mordin and Grunt after that. Then Jack. F the rest.

Other than Miranda and Jack, I personally thought that pretty much all the human options for the whole trilogy were lame/boring. Hopefully it won't be forever until the next game comes out.

Same, the humans were often my least favourite.

Actually, I don't even think Miranda was that great, I loved Jack tho!

She kinda had a neat backstory, that's pretty much it lol. Not much on an actual character. Jack definitely wins the human side lol.

I didn't mind Jacob either. But I didn't use him much. The humans introduced in 2 were much more intriguing than the 2 introduced in 1 (besides Shepard, of course).

Most people had to because their points weren't high enough. Tough to do in the first game.

I always had my points high enough for Wrex to live, high enough to get Saren to kill himself at the end, meaning that I only had one fight at the end instead of two. Wrex is funny in the second game as well, ah the benefits of a redundant nervous system...then Shepard replies...yeah...human's don't have that....

If you do the side quest where you get his family armor back you don't have to have that high scores. Actually I don't think you need to do a Paragon/Renegade wheel reply if you do that, but don't quote me on that.

I didn't get his family armor until my second play through. ME1 didn't spell things out like the next two games did... looking back on it, I think that's a good thing. You really had to dig for side quests.

I was one of those people who was too afraid of "the point of no return" in games, where all the side quests would no longer be avalible, so I did as many as I can before the next mission.

Thankfully, I managed to save everyone =}

Except Mordin in Mass Effect 3, who sacrificed himself to cure the Genophage

Mordiinnnn ;O;

Oh and the people that had to die, like Kaiden and Legion.

Mordin gets such a great sendoff, though. "Had to be me. Someone else might have gotten it wrong."

Yep yep! Probably the best mission in ME3.

But hearing him sing Scientist-Salarian/Major General all afraid and stuff, that was heart-breaking. OTL

Doesn't he mention in a convo you have with him on the Normandy that he wanted to track it down?

I think it was the first side quest I stumbled upon after the first mission because I basically did all of the side quests/investigating before doing the main story missions. Well excluding recruiting Liara since I wanted my full team pretty early.

If you talk to Wrex on the Normandy after a mission or two yeah you can get him to talk about how he's looking for his family's armor, much like with how Garrus talks about that crazy doctor that he's been looking for.

Yea, but you have to keep investigating. People who don't walk around after every mission and talk to every one will miss out on some things.

I always brought Ashley/Miranda on every mission.

Garrus was a usual pick as well. Along with Thane and that DLC creature in 3 whose name escapes me atm
