N7 Day 2018 Video Reminds Us Of How Great the Franchise Once Was

Today is N7 Day, which is a celebration of Bioware’s once majestic Mass Effect franchise, which to me is easily one of the greatest video game franchises of all-time.

Well, it was, until Mass Effect: Andromeda, which for one reason or another, just didn’t capture the magic of the original trilogy. It was a gut punch for people like me who have played the original games at least twice a piece, because from a narrative standpoint, it just lacked the same level of emotion that the originals packed in. It didn’t have the same sense of mystery and wonder, it just wasn’t fun.

Anyway, in honor of N7 Day, Bioware has put out a video that looks back at the franchise, and reminds us all why this series is so highly regarded amongst gamers from the last console generation. It was kind of sad at the same time, because it reminded me of how disappointing the last title was. Oh well, there’s always the future.

Happy N7 Day you Shepherders!
