I just loved the world. It wasn't about humans mingling with aliens, but a community of aliens and humans together. We were actually aliens too in this game. And I loved how it started as time had pasted and humans had integrated themselves in a galactic society beyond the "oooh, aliens!".
I actually squeed when I was able to overhead a Salarian and human woman having a normal conversation about work. I know it seems very mundane, but it was a common scene in an amazing view. I hope to see moments like that and then some in the sequeal.
I already pre-ordered and I am waiting for tomorrow midnight to bring my copy home.
My friends have actually made fun of my obession.
They say stuff like, "You put the disc in your 360 and it red rings." Grrrrrr!!!!
And then they come up with this scenario of me being cast away on an island like Tom Hanks except the plane is full of copies of Mass Effect 2. I end up building a raft out of the cardboard boxes and game cases. My rope is the tape that held the boxes shut and the beach ball friend is a mint copy of Mass Effect 2 of which I speak to Shepard's face.
"We got to leave soon, Shepard."
"I know we need more rope, Shepard."
The sail has the Alliance Logo on it.
Mass Effect 2 copy falls in the ocean and I scream, "SHEPARD!!!!!!"
I hate those guys.
