Squee? HA!
I seen his replies. Squee is die-hard fanboy and his videos were full of veiled insults.

Smudboy is right. You are wrong. It's as simple as that.
ME2 main story is horribly written. What saves it are the companions and their side-missions and good execution.

Bald assertion does not inspire confidence in your factuality.

And bald assertion on an inherently subjective subject makes you look like an uninformed asshat.

Quality of writing is not really that subjective. There a thing called literary theory...and effective use of tropes..and avoiding idiot balls, plot holes and ass-pulls.
You confidence is irrelevant.

Clearly this is why I hate Hemmingway when he's required reading in English courses. Oh wait.

Worse yet, you are arguing the subjective qualities of something analyzing subjective qualities. A review (and I use the term loosely) is itself of subjective quality while examining something of subjective quality. To pronounce the subjectives of a subjective as truth is an abomination against all that is clear and logical on a scale I doubted even you were capable of.

I have no idea what you just said. Your subjective ramblings are no concern of mine. I care not what you think. I care what is.

Plot holes are bad. Idiot balls are bad. Ass-pulls are bad. Misused tropes are bad. This is non-debatable.

If you honestly believe that just because you like the plot(or game in this case) , it is excellently written, then you're committing a fallacy that makes everything I've done and will do look like nothing.

ME2 is a good game.
ME2 writing is bad.
These are facst, regardless how some fanboys desperately dispute them.

Define these in such a way that everyone can agree. Then apply these definitions to the game in such a way that everyone can agree.

Then, perhaps, you have an argument. Until then, you are simply spewing garbage unto the void.

Everyone agreeing is not necessary. Everyone does not even agree on scientific, provable truths.

Regardless, there is no point in debating this with you. There is nothing to debate, because the truth is allready known.

I admit I would have really liked for this to have been utilized more.  Personally, I always thought that there should have been some kind of mental/emotional impact on Shepard from all the trials and travails s/he has dealt with over the course of the two games.   Between being brutally killed and resurrected, not to mention caring the burden of what's in store and having the Cypher rolling around in her or his head I'm  surprised they don't go up to their cabin roll up into a ball and rock back in forth for hours.

Apparently they were going for a more war-weary approach to the voice acting in ME3 but test audiences hated it (**** YOU TEST AUDIENCES)

You know what scene I liked from ME1? When the Councill waves you off after all you've done and locks down Normandy. And Shep is there raging on the normandy, hitting hte locker in frustration and slumping to the ground, before the LI comes over to comfort him/her.
One of the best scenes.

Kinda like the end of Lair of the Shadow Broker. Shep actually shows some vulnerability and humanity, it's a massive improvement over what basically amounts to being RoboCop with snarky one-liners (some of which I do admit made me laugh, like the Dantius towers mercenary renegade interrupt). LotSB was a fantastic DLC almost entirely because of that end scene, or at least it was for me.

Please, please spare yourself from seeing smudboy's videos. His arrogance to what he calls an "objective analysis" of the plot will make you crawl up the walls.

I was wondering when someone would call me on it - I wanted Phineus (after Phineus Taylor Barnum) but that has been taken so many places so I went with this instead. Kalfireth was getting a little too... DnD-y :p
