Every time I hear someone call an impending RPG "one of the best games ever," all I can think of is Peter Molyneux and Fable .
But at least in this case, BioWare might actually have a reason to say Mass Effect 3 could end up being one of the greatest titles in history. Marketing boss David Silverman is doing his job well by promoting the potential quality of BioWare's third ME installment. After reminding everyone that ME2 won 150 Game of the Year Awards, he said the team has done a lot of research about what people like best. And the result would be as follows:
"We’re making Mass Effect 3 to be the best game we’ve ever made. That would make it one of the best games ever, and we’re hoping to see sales that reflect that."
And of course, the point of the interview at CVG is to prove that ME3 can indeed sell huge without "selling out." We believe it, but the hardcore role-playing fans will be the judge of that when the game arrives. Remember, BioWare, that same group had some criticism of your last RPG that, while still great, seemed headed in an unsavory direction. Yes, we're talking about Dragon Age II .
