Topic: Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect Series discussion thread.

Mass Effect 2 is the only game I waited in line for the night before it came out, and did not disappoint. Also, there is no discussion for the first game or the series as a whole, so I am setting one up. This is also my first post in a long time.
So, what do you like better about the new game? What do you miss from the first? What path did you take, favorite characters, etc.
Please boldly state when you are using spoilers, so as not to give anything away to those who haven't beaten the game. Example:
*SPOILER*
Saren kills Nihlus on Eden Prime

I was excited about Mass Effect back when the first one first came out. That was because I was under the impression that it was the KOTOR people making it. Then I found out I was very wrong. And that the game is nothing more than an excuse to worship lesbianing and that there's not really much of a story. Mind you, never played the game, that's just what I heard.

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

You heard wrong.

Mass Effect was made by Bioware (the company who made KOTOR) just because they didn't copy and the paste the engine and game mechanics of KOTOR doesn't mean it wasn't made by the same company, if you were to play it you would see the similarity in the games design philosophy. Mass Effect is all about story and important choices. If your a gamer then you would seriously be missing out not playing this game. Mass Effect is by far one of the best RPG experiences out there

My rant is over now. Sorry if I exploded but Mass Effect got a lot of bad press it didn't deserve back when it came out.

Oh, I know it was Bioware, but it was not the same team.

Miba, I'm very sorry you heard that. The press played it up, but that only happened if you were a female character, and you could sleep with an Asari, commonly mistaken for an all-female race. They are actually a genderless race that reproduce psychicly, however (tweens don't read) obviously you need  vaginas to give birth to children and breasts to feed them. A genderless race with male parts could not reproduce. Since the Asari reproduce psychicly, (by melding minds) they can reproduce with any species. The sex scene is brief and PG-13, honestly. No frontal nudity. Not to mention it's optional. The game does *not* worship lesbianism. It is a lot like Kotor in some ways, and it is a general consensus that Mass Effect is one of the best RPGs in this generation.
And not much of a story? This is the best video game story since Kotor, and the characters are much deeper, and the dialogue is more complex. I agree with Mandal_ShadowWarrior. Sorry, I'm not mad at you Miba, I just think you should play the game before you knock it. It is my second favorite game. (Mass Effect 2 is number 1). Anyway...
I did mostly Paragon, what were some of your favorite choices?
