So yeah, I've heard and saw a few people saying they liked Mass Effect, and I'm a huge fan, recent but still pretty involved. I would have played the 360 version, but I just don't have the money to support a Ps3, PC and 360 usage, with cash for XBL all together. But none the less, I've read both books, and I've played the game more often than is healthy for a person my age, but I still love it.
Obviously, if nobody knows what Mass Effect is, its a true RPG-Shooter. Many games claim to be RPG-Shooters, but theres never really been a mix between a good action/shooter game and a RPG. Its either one or the other, but never both. Mass Effect does a great job of mixing both environments, but still maintaining that certain, special advantage above all other games in both classes. Its not the best shooter, but likely the best RPG I've played in a while, yet still ranks high on this FPS-lovers list.
So for favorites, its hard to make a list, since theres so much to love, but so much to be picky about, its hard to figure out what I love most. On one hand the story is SO much deeper than your standard RPG, and theres no shooter in history that can even try to compared its story to Mass Effect(COD4 was good, but still insanely lacking and dry, though the gameplay made up for it).
So, point is, favorite parts of Mass Effect, what do you think will happen in the next book/game, and what do you hope to change.
