Twitter user under the pseudonym Snizabelle dividedthat every time she watches Top Gun, she’s struck by the similarity of its opening to that of the first Mass Effect.

Recall that the original Mass Effect, which debuted in 2007, begins with a black screen with the background of game events in white text, followed by the project logo.

As it turns out, the similarities between Top Gun and Mass Effect intros are no coincidence. In addition, the developers of BioWare deliberately made a reference to the film by Tony Scott (Tony Scott) in the first few seconds of their space opera.

Hudson admitted to having been an inspiration to his former team. “Finally someone noticed! I have waited so long…” – The developer commented on the observation of Snizabelle left to her on her microblog on January 17th.

In fairness, it should be noted that Snizabelle did not become the discoverer of this surface secret. The resemblance was also noted in 2016 on reddit. However, there is no official confirmation of shipping yet.

Hudson and Mass Effect eventually split in December 2020 when the former BioWare exec left to start his own studio. The new installment of Mass Effect is in pre-production and has no release dates yet.
