Default Mass Effect

I don't know if I've ever been as obsessed with something as I am with Mass Effect.

Has anyone here played them? If so, do you love them as much as I do? And if the answer to that is yes, are you even able to contain your excitement for Mass Effect 3? March is just too far away. I don't know if I'll make it.

I've never invested nearly as much time into a game (or even a series. I've definitely played ME more than I've played Pokemon or something) in my entire life. I've played through as every class on both games, and am currently playing through even more as the better classes but on harder difficulties and as a different heroic alignment. I just can't get enough of the universe. The atmosphere. The characters.

I'm officially obsessed.

It's okay dude (dudette?). I feel you. Having an intergalactic lesbian relationship with a bald alien chick is one of the highlights of my video gaming career. Unfortunately I traded in my 360 before II came out, so I've only played the first game. Whenever I get another 360 I'm gonna have to play through all three games.

:O ME2 is probably even better than ME1. There aren't many things that can compare to the feeling you get when going through the ME2 finale. You definitely need to gt your hands on a new 360 asap.

I`ve played ME1 and ME2 they`re good games but I`m definitely not obssessed with them either.

Personally I liked KOTOR better but to each his own I suppose.

This series is completely awesome. Played through it as a good Vanguard. So pumped for the next game.

And yes, ME1 doesn't even begin to compare with ME2. You need to get that game ASAP.

To be honest, Mass Effect bores me. Maybe I'm playing it wrong, but it's just not a very exciting RPG, coming from someone who likes both Sci Fi and RPGs. And the dialogue system is annoying to no end.

I like it, but I have no idea why. The story is just typical Bioware recycling based on standard sci-fi norms, the plot twists aren't as good as the people say they are, most of the characters are badly-made and unoriginal, and the gameplay's terrible in both games. But there's something that compels me to it, despite everything I hate about it. I think it's probably the deep relationships between the few good characters in the game and you (by me I mean FemShep, not ManShep).

Since you felt the need to specify, I'm gonna assume that you're actually a dude. But you do that too? I always make my character a chick in any game I play.

Yeah, I always make female characters when possible. I just think that strong female leads are better than strong male leads. Esecially so for FemShep, who's better than ManShep in pretty much every way except she can't have Miranda.
