Mass Effect 3 is the game in the original trilogy where BioWare finally found the perfect gameplay formula for combat. It was fast, fluid, and actually made Shepard feel like a well-trained space marine.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is fantastic, but some of its realism-focused changes eclipse the style of the original game. Here's why I find that disappointing, and why I feel developers should avoid this direction with remasters overall.
