The fact that it is on rails, has huge cut scenes, is third person*, has strange controls on the PC and is not available on Steam set the acceptable price for me at around $25, including all current and future DLC. Your mileage may differ.
*(I HATE third person - how hard would it have been to make it an option, like Skyrim?)
LOL, Mass Effect has always been third person, has never been full sandbox, the cutscenes are part of the storytelling process, and i don't know wtf you mean by strange controls, it's wasd + mouse, like every other first and third person game.
The 3rd person is a design decision, take it or leave it, but it may well have been difficult to implement first person with the cover system.
You get used to it really fast, and it suits the game very well imo.
Sounds like you are after a different game, yup, this one may not be for you!
But you are missing out!
You completely misunderstood his post.
