Mass Effect was never the most amazing story anyway. It just tried to make up the difference with epic scope and scale. ME2 was amazing as a game with some astonishingly good characters, but storywise jumped the shark right at the end. ME3... actually, I'm not sure I've formed an opinion on it yet despite completing it when it was released. Certainly it wasn't any better story-wise than the previous two.|
But really, FWB, if story is the single most important thing to you in a game I think you must've played very few games you've liked... well, pretty much ever. Even the game stories that are held up as great examples fall down in too many ways to be credible. Many of them are an order of magnitude better than FC3 though, granted.
I'm just about to embark on the last few Far Cry 3 story missions, then will mop up the final two or three outposts and call it a day for now. Halo 4, Dishonored and Borderlands 2 are still calling to me; begging to be completed.
