    I should play ME1. I played 2 and 3 but not one.

    It's got a compelling narrative but the combat isn't great, the side missions are very samey and exploring planets in the Mako, while it gives you a sense of exploration and space adventure, is really fucking boring. The writing also improved a fair bit in ME2 and ME3.

    Still a good game, but you may have missed the window where it was awesome fun to play.

    ME1 is just hands down better at story than ME2.

    Combat is so incredibly much better in ME2 though.

    Goodness. I'm about to move on to Dragon Age II, and and Ass Creed II (once Mass Effect 2 is done, of course).

    I am you, in the future.

    The main story, sure.

    ME2's story substance is in the loyalty missions.

    If you play ME2 and you don't do the loyalty missions, you're really missing out.

    I was gonna start up an ME1 game yesterday but I can't find the discs. I have like three or four games that are gone now, they are probably loaned out and not returned.

    I agree in some aspects, but the story is quite disjointed in some parts. I remember Virmire (I think) being especially messy. Or maybe it was Feros. The one with Deanna Troi.

    ME2 really tightened up the story flow.

    There should be a Sci Fi where human are the token hot species, like green alien girls / twi'leks / asari.

    Other species never take us seriously and they're always slapping our asses and winking in space stations because they just see us as hot but dumb space sex.

    I did but I just missed the grand scope of things from 1. Individually they were great, and the locations for some of the missions were even greater.

    Feros was utterly forgettable and the Deanna Troi part was Noveria which was also somewhat forgettable except for the bit with
    the rachni queen, which was awesome

    Really, if I were King of Hollywood and I were making a Mass Effect 1 movie, I would:
    Combine Feros and Noveria into a single storyline, just enough introduce the rachni queen, and then head straight to Virmire

    Asari are really privileged in ME1. They are the token hot species, oldest civ, extreeeeeme lifespan, most technically advanced etc.

    It can't be hard being an upper class blue female asari on the citadel is what I am saying.

    It strikes me thus far that the strategic 'meat' of the game is creating effective strategies for your NPC teammates, which makes it kind of a Core Wars style, AI-oriented game.

    At the very least, trying to train my people to not go all Leeroy Jenkins into hordes of darkspawn has been a bit challenging...

    DA:O is such a great game. I played it a shit ton. Also one of the few games were you can pretty much objectively say it was better on the PC than any other system.

    Also it contains Alistar. <3 Alistar.
