OMG! Level 15! - Level 15
You know that game from 2007 that everyone was talking about? No, not Bioshock, Uncharted, or Halo 3, it's Mass Effect. After four years of being late to the party, I've finally arrived, and I'm loving almost every minute of it. With its awesome story, fantastic characters and satisfying gunplay, it makes for a truly amazing experience.... which actually has me concerned.
I can't stop thinking about it! I wonder what's going to happen next, even hours after I finish playing. I suppose that means it's a great game, but I haven't really experienced this before. If I play a good game, I wonder about it, sure, but never like this (Of course, the games I've truly been in love with have never actually been 30+ hour RPGs...). With Mass Effect, I just can't stop thinking about these characters that I really feel invested in, and how their journey aboard the Normandy will conclude.
The ironic part is, I want to be done with Mass Effect, so I can push it aside...
For Mass Effect 2, that is.
My favorite characters so far are Wrex, the bad-*** Krogan Battlemaster, and Ashley, the calm, cool and collected Alliance soldier. I'm almost desperately hoping that they both carry over to Mass Effect 2, but I'm a bit worried, as GIOR friends Ben and Jayson have given me some... worrying hints on Twitter.
I'm guessing that I'm going to have to choose between one or the other. With Ashley's nature of not liking the Aliens on the ship, I could see them getting into a fight.
