Poll: So.... Who missed the shot for Garrus?

 Pages 1 2 3 NEXT
 

From what I've seen there hasn't really been a lot of talk about Mass Effect 3 beyond the ending fiasco....

So to lighten the mood a little, did you purposefully miss the shot for Garrus on your romantic/bromantic date on the citadel?

I did across all my playthroughs so far, simply because the guy is constantly under Shep's shadow and he needs it. Espeacially with Palaven and his mother etc. etc. Also if you look at the Shadow Broker documents, it clearly says that he won't develop to his full potential under Shepard's shadow, I thought that giving him the best shot title would definitely help with that.

So, for discussion value, why did you make the choice you made?

Oh, just saying, keep it civil and please don't go off topic with Mass Effect 3 hate, this thread is to get away from that and focus on the good stuff.

I missed it of course, everyone knows Garrus is awesome, he should know it too.

you know, while it is out of context..that is a bit of a spoiler, and it is right in the title. might wanna change that

but yes, yes i did miss it for him, i've done stuff like that before in real life all the time for close friends and my brothers, so i don't see why i wouldn't for garrus, the epitome of walking badass

My first Shepard showed him up. My second Shepard is too much of a sap to take all the glory. Plus, he gets so happy if you miss it lol

Garrus is my bro, I had to let him win the contest.

That was one of the best moments in the game, whoever wrote Garrus was genius, he felt like a real friend - one of my favourite videogame characters EVER.

I figured that if my Shepard respected Garrus then she wouldn't patronise him like that. Losing on purpose is something that you do with kids.

So bottle went boom.

No, he is a hero of his people (even Generals salute him) and he doesn't need to be lied to in order to feel that way. Let people accomplish things in their own right. If he ever found out he would feel cheated and doubt himself later.

also, this:

Hell no, I didn't! (Although I took this more personally because I was an infiltrator, and my InfiltratorShep never misses his shots.)

Besides, everyone knows Garrus is a better dancer. I will admit a legitimate defeat in this regard.

Out of interest, does this scene play out the same if you play a character class that isn't trained with a sniper rifle?

In ME3 everyone can carry a sniper rifle, there isn't training anymore for it. On my Vanguard, I took the shot and hit it.

My first Shepard didn't miss the shot.

He's a paragon through and through, but Garrus would have know that he missed on purpose, because that's the type of thing he'd expect that Shepard to do.

My Femshep, on the other hand, is a hardass with a slight paragon streak, but she's also in a relationship with Garrus. She missed on purpose, because that's something she could get away with. If it was anyone else, the bottle would have been toast.

He needed it more than she did.

Totally agree.

I always felt throughout the three games that Garrus had the best writing and VA - closely followed by Wrex.

Totally missed the shot btw - my FemShep knew that Garrus needed perking up more than she did.

Pfffft, I'm Commander Frickin' Shepard, Garrus is only the 2nd best gun in the galaxy! Particularly since my primary Shepard is an Infiltrator. :P

But yeah, one of my "off-brand" Shepards (seriously, I've got at least 8 files that I can bring up) romanced Garrus in ME 2, I figure she'll miss the shot for him.

My main Shep (first playthrough). It's Garrus, he's the very model of a Bro Turian to Shepard.

Also, my second Shepard has like the worst case of renegade ever. And I really hate that guy. I have so much less fun playing this callous, condescending asshole.

Hell naw. Can't let that cuttlebone get too cocky.

"I'M GARRUS VAKARIAN AND THIS IS NOW MY FAVORITE SPOT ON THE CITADEL"

In my playthrough, Shepard's Relationship with Garrus is a bromance where the two compete to be better than the other. So no, I didn't miss the shot. My Shepard is a sniper, he won't be out sniped by his Turian rival.

But that's just for me. I can see why someone would miss the shot, but in my playthrough of the game, nope.

GiantRaven:

In ME3, Shepard can use every gun regardless of class. (s)he's just that good.

I've done both, depending on play-through. Both options are awesome.

This was my favourite part of the whole game and kudos to the writer at Bioware who, for the first time ever, made me genuinly care for a videogame character.

OT: Of course I missed!

Nope, didn't miss. Garrus would be so disappointed if he found out that I was going easy on him.

That was exactly my line of thought. I respect Garrus, as does my canon Shep, way too much to miss on purpose for him.

Have you seen the text you get from Garrus via the data pad when you miss?

Some of the texts are fairly bland, but there are some real winners in there. =)

I missed the shot because I have always felt bad for Garrus. Through all three games he gets the short end of the stick, so I decided to give him a break and miss the shot.

He had the dumbest AI in ME2 thought maybe that was just me but every time I brought him along he would just stand up and die. It's not like he was getting flanked or anything he would just stand up and not get back behind cover. Like I said maybe it was just my copy of ME2 or something but after that I just brought Grunt or Legion instead.

I just did that with my femShep romance of Garrus and I missed the shot. Hey it WAS windy after all...I actually had a save right before that scene and I've kept the save so I think I'm going to do it again just because it was fun. In fact, I may just keep a seperate save to just before it and do it a dozen times, whenever the mood strikes me to see it again.

Haha I initially thought this was going to be about not romancing him in the second one and not being able to in the third. On THAT topic I made a mistake when trying to romance him in the second, and was heartbroken when I found him with Tali in the third. Sad day...

Anyways, I didn't miss. I'm not sure why I decided to shoot it... frustration about the previously addressed topic, I suppose.

I wish there was a way for Shepard to miss without it being deliberate.

I was on a Fembromantic date with him.
I hit the shot because i assumed we'd keep going and something funny would happen, i didn't think it would stop there. But he took it with pride so i gotta respect that.

Missed the shot, knew it would make him happy.
I wish that it was actually on me to try to shoot the bottles, then I would have lost just because I fail at sniping. Then he could be happy about winning, and I wouldn't have to feel like a dick for letting him win and sorta kinda lying.

Bro's before hoe's s'all im saying

Nah, I hit the bottle. I respect my turian buddy way too much to go easy on him.

I'm on my second playthrough now, so I'll probably miss the shot this time around for the sake of the dialogue.

I made the shot. My Shepard never misses and she knows it would take more than being able to shoot a can out of the air to get our Garrus down. Plus, while Shepard may have been able to shoot the can, Garrus could have shot the bullet out of the sky if he wanted to.

There you go Bioware, a free DLC idea. Include a scene where Garrus shoots an incoming sniper round out of midair. Totally ridiculous of course, but still...

Yes, he's my Shep's love interest and she had just told him she loved him, I wasn't about to ruin the mood!
