What to do about Legion? In my current play through of Mass Effect 2, I’ve decided to make decisions as I would in real life, not necessarily purely “Paragon” or “Renegade”.
I’ve done things on mostly a good alignment, but this next choice is neither something good, nor bad.
I could reactivate Legion and ask him why he has welded a piece of Commander Shepard’s armor onto his chest (an illogical and unpractical choice for an Artificial Intelligence). However, it might turn on me and destroy the Normandy; effectively destroying any chance for humanity and the rest of the galactic community to defeat the Reapers. That’s the last thing I want to happen.
Legion did save Shepard aboard the derelict Reaper, though. Something no other geth has done. It also spoke to Shepard, saying his name. A single geth usually only has the intelligence of a dog, so my curious side wants to reactive it and ask what it’s up too.
I feel I wouldn’t reactivate it, for the risk is too great and the mission is too important. But the fact that it talked and has Shepard’s armor welded onto it makes me insanely curious. Would I let my curiosity get in the way and rick everything? This is a tough choice.
(I’ve played ME2 with Legion as part of my team before and I know how awesome he is. I’m trying to forget how cool he is and make this decision as I would. I guess I would just sleep on it!)
