Best of GR videos: Commander Shepard is the biggest prick in the galaxy

Thanks to your irrational love of loud, opinionated games coverage, GamesRadar has now thrived online for five (!) full years. We’ve got several celebratory plans in motion, but we also wanted to take this time to present some of our older video hits that may have slipped by in the past 60 months. Enjoy these “best of” hits and THANK YOU for allowing our stupidness to invade your life on a daily basis.

As a Spectre, Commander Shepard is devoted to justice and security by any means necessary. And while most of us would still choose to guide him down the friendly Paragon path, Shepard's sweeping authority gives him the right to punch people in the face for any reason. So, with a galaxy at stake (and a vengeful gamer at the helm), his trip through the Mass Effect galaxy quickly devolve into pure assholery.

Keep in mind this was originally posted February 6, 2008, so this only pertains to the first Mass Effect. Part two was just a gleam in BioWare's compilers at that point.

    I remeberer this video still as good now as it as then.

    I love this video to death. I love the sequel even more.

    For a more in-deptA look on how much of an asshole Shepard can be, look up on YouTube 'Shepard is A Jerk' and 'Shepard is Still A Jerk'.

    You know what's weird? Mass Effect is the only RPG where I have my guy be good. Fallout 3? This homeless guy asked me for some water, so I shot him point blank with a shotgun and watched him explode. Mass Effect? I saved Wrex, one of the best fighters in the game, with my paragon speech thing. Dragon Age I'm pretty mean too.

    My favorite commander shepard quote is when he talks to the c-sec guy on the citadel that is trying to get the hanar to stop preaching. "Its just a BIG STUPID JELLYFISH!"
  • AirickG - March 10, 2011 3:15 a.m.

    Should have had the one where he punches the reporter in there...
  • zanthox - March 10, 2011 2:09 a.m.

    Ahh, the awesome that is renegade.
  • juicenpancakes - March 10, 2011 1:49 a.m.

    Another personal favorite, but I don't know if it gets much better than the Mega Man video you did of every 8-bit boss level. I think I've watched that at least once a month since it was posted.
  • Bobbety - March 10, 2011 1:34 a.m.

    Oh Commander Shepard...
  • ssj4raditz - March 10, 2011 1:32 a.m.

    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite video on GamesRadar.
  • IceBlueKirby - March 10, 2011 1:27 a.m.

    Haha, that was hilarious. I've never played ME as a renegade prick, but now I want to just to see what else he'll say.
  • lovinmyps3 - March 10, 2011 1:14 a.m.

    Ha! I remember this video! I played through once as the biggest prick, I felt like one doing it too.
  • batmanboy11 - March 10, 2011 1:08 a.m.

    One of my all time favoute GR videos.
