Month of Mass Effect, Day 23: Treasured Memories

I’m shamelessly stealing the Mass Effect Month article series created by the always awesome Athena over on AmbiGaming in 2017 (which was the Mass Effect 10th anniversary) and turning it into one of those 30 day challenge thingys! Definitely check out Athena Veta’s great content on AmbiGaming and consider supporting her Video Game Relevancy Crusade (TM) on Patreon, if ya got a few bucks to spare.

Please Note: Enjoy… but be warned that there will be unmarked SPOILERS for all of the Mass Effect games. Read at your own risk!

Today’s Mass Effect series question: What is your favourite part of the games?

Always appreciate time with the people who are special to you. Never take anyone or anything in this galaxy for granted, eh. In the blink of an eye and for various reasons, close connections can simply cease to exist. But you will always have those treasured memories of the people who are now gone from your life. That is something to be grateful for!

My favourite moment in the Mass Effect trilogy is Liara’s farewell gift near the end of Mass Effect 3. She offered to share her memories with my Shepard in a special asari meld. I… almost cried during that scene. Liara is the super-BFF of my dreams and sharing such an intimate friend moment with her was truly amazing. It was so bittersweet, too. I had a bad feeling there would be no happy ending to my Shepard’s story, and this was really… goodbye.

Goodbyes are hard, but memories will last forever. Especially if you can actually share them with your friends like the asari can.

In Andromeda, my favourite part was the movie night scene. After a few fetch quests, I was treated to a wonderful scene of the whole gang chillaxing together. It was so freaking magical! You could feel the close bonds of friendship between everyone. D’aww! I wish I had a group of close friends like that in reality.

Their only crime is that they couldn’t live up to the Normandy crew. That doesn’t make them bad characters, dammit!

Thanks for reading!

If for some odd reason you want to read more of my posts, you can find a somewhat organized (and usually up to date) archive of my ramblings… I mean, articles here!


Really like what you read and feel like financially supporting Livid Lightning? HA! Probably not, but hey, here’s a couple ways to fuel my writing pipe dream!

My name is Ellen, and I've been babbling on the interwebz about video games for over 15 years. Video games themselves have been a large part of my life since 5-year-old me first encountered a SNES in a children's hospital. Fun times... Video game escapism is still the #1 coping mechanism for adult me these days.

  1. Totally agree with your choice for Andromeda definitely a favourite moment across all the games for me, I also wish I had a close group of friends like that but social anxiety and preferring to be at home playing ze video games than going out anywhere make that a little bit difficult 😅
