“Had to be me. Someone else might have gotten it wrong.”

From: Mass Effect 3

Genre: Video Games

Who said it?: Mordin Solus

The story behind the quote: This is my second quote from the Mass Effect series by Bioware. And, much like my other quote from the series, not many people quote it even though it’s poignant and memorable. In all fairness, however, it’s possible that, due to the branching story paths you can take throughout the Mass Effect series, it’s possible some gamers may not even encounter the quote.

The quote comes from the third game of the series. Mordin Solus, one of Commander Shepard’s squad members, has developed a cure for the krogan genophage, a disease that prevents the krogan race from bearing offspring. However, in order to disperse the genophage cure, Mordin would have to go to the top of a tower, which is on the verge of collapse. It does mean sure death for the salarian but he’s okay with it as he was one of the people involved in the creation of the genophage in the first place.

While Shepard is sorry to see his comrade leave, Mordin says that he isn’t…

Geek wisdom: We like to pretend that we aren’t involved in the world. We like to say we have no voice in important matters. Yet, we love to complain when other people mess things up. If we really want to set the future in the right path, we have to make sure that things get done properly. After all, there’s a chance others will get it wrong.
