Missed Effect

It took me four years to muster up the personal will to complete Mass Effect 1. It was an ugly, unbalanced, unsightly mishmash of game elements, slow, weirdly paced and impenetrable.

I just finished Mass Effect 2: Mass Harder after playing it for a week. People heaped praise upon the first game when it came out and I don’t see it in hindsight; but Mass Effect 2? Holy christ is this an absorbing game.

I’ll do more in-depth thought on this later, but for now, I’m soaking in this, and in the utter smugness that comes from being asked, by a friend, to try the final mission without any guides or hints. Wanna know how I did…? Well…
