Hii guys,
I own both games but i think mass effect 3 is better out of both . Both are the best rpg games ever made in opinion . I have completed 3/4th of mass effect 3 while i have just played 10 hours on skyrim , once i beat mass effect 3 i will start to play skyrim.

In mass effect 3 there u can play the game as rpg mode or action mode in action mode dialogues will be choosen for u and it will play as cutscenes and rpg
mode is as usual as mass effect 1 and 2.

Most of the people are telling skyrim is better than me3 because of the game length . Story length of skyrim is just 30 hours but side missions are around 200 hours length . Mass effect 3 will be around 30 hours plus it has multiplayer which will definetly last u upto 30-50 hours . Also Mass effect 3 has cutscenes while skyrim doesnt have cutscenes . Most of the skyrim players will not spend more than 60 hours in that game only a few will spend around 100 hours .

You wont like skyrim if u dont like rpg games but u will like mass effect 3 whether u or an rpg guy or not because of 2 things :
1. U can altogether skip rpg mode and choose action mode .
2. Even if u choose to play in rpg mode still u wont get bored because it has better story, and it is also action, tps and sci fiction.

Generally Mass effect 3 will be appealing to many rpg as well as non rpg gamers because the game is modern rpg while skyrim is ancient type.

Maybe i might also be wrong but after beating both games i will post my final opinion about both games. If u are a fan of rpg games u will definetly like these games . Even if u are nt rpg fan u might like them so give it a try whether u like skyrim or not but definetly u will like mass effect 3

Guys tell me which game like do u like the most and specifify the reason why like it . God Bless

My vote was for Mass Effect because it is much more immerse FOR ME. To be honest, I couldn't care less if ANY character in Skyrim died, I would just continue on my journey. No real connection with the other characters. I did play for the better part of 48 hours, so I didn't just run through the game, I put some time into it. There is always the modding community to account for, but in general, a VERY fun game, but like I said, I couldn't care less when someone I cared for died.

Now with Mass Effect, much less time in comparison to Skyrim, but a game isn't all about how long it will take to do every side-quest, and there are so many problems with this game I could wright a review, but in general, one of the best games I have played in a long time. Every time a main character was almost killed... I gasped with tears welling up in my eyes.. Like for example Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
When Grunt is willing to sacrifice his life to let Shepard get away from the Rachni I woke my wife up with a loud "NO!!!!" and then when you see him crawl back up covered in rachni blood... Beautiful.

When it comes to endings, both games are lackluster, I personally didn't think the end of Mass Effect 3 was that bad, but according to everyone on the internet (4% of sales) it was the worst ending to anything EVER. With Skyrim, the end sneaks up on you. What happens when Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
You side with the queen? You help her... that is all. You don't silence the rebellion, you don't even help them come to a peace agreement... It just kind of... is there. You picked a side, and you can still even go have a chat with the Rebel leader if you want, despite them knowing you are against him.

I think it is clear who the winner is for me. I was more disappointed with the ending of ME3 tho, not enough to regret buying it for 80$ for the CE tho, so that should say something.

In the true spirit and vastness of an open world RPG, i vote skyrim, theres just so much to see and do and kill and cast and discover and just GAZE at the immense beauty. You really do feel like questing in that game and grinding is not a problem. Theres tons of interesting quests to keep your level ocupied while you journey, none of that stupid WOW "kill me 10 animals and bring me their hides even tho you can barely kill 1 of said animal."

Concrete story immerision, yeah it kinda lacks it, but it makes up for it with how ALIVE the world feels.

ME3 on the other hand has a much better and interesting plot with a lot to shoot at and a lot to talk about and decide, up until the lame ending tho.

When I'm feeling goal oriented, I'd take Mass Effect over Skyrim. I recently halted playing ME3 after my second playthrough as I'm waiting for the "fixed" ending for another. It's also has a better narrative sense than Skyrim. in my opinion and a better story. Skyrim on the other hand has had over a decade to build up it's lore. It's much richer in atmosphere. It's also a much more lucid experience. When I want to mess around, I'd like to play Skyrim (or Morrowind).

At teh end of the day, they offer two different experiences beyond the basic setting. Skyrim is a sandbox game while I consider (yup, it's an opinion) Mass Effect to be a non-linear theme park type game. It really depends on what mood I'm in. It should be worth noting I like sci-fi more than fantasy as I'd love a pure sandbox sci-fi game.
