wow i very surprised, i hear a lot of great things about ME....

although my all time favorite RPG is Deus Ex, so ME might suite me..

i was actually kinda surprised myself with the reaction, ME seems to be more love/Hate then anything else, and I would like to note the fact that everyone who has posted in here has either Loved Mass Effect or Hated it.

For me it would have to go like this

1. Fallout 3 (Took me a while, I wanted to put this at the bottom because I played the first two Fallout games, and even though I knew Fallout 3 wouldn't stay true to the series I guess I was just depressed while playing it because I knew there would never be another true fallout game. But once I was able to appreciate it in its own right I loved it)

2. The Witcher (This game might legitimately challenge for #1 if it wasn't linear. They said it was open world when I was reading interviews on it. But then I play it and it's only half true. I have to give it to the designers for supporting the community. They released an enhanced version with improvements and better dialogue and adventure packs for free)

3. Mass Effect (Boring boring boring boring boring.)

Ok did you play any of the main quest? in know some side quests are boring but the main quest has one of the best stories in all of Sci-fi.

I'm in the middle. I like it, but I've only ever bothered to play through it once.

Fallout 3 has more replay value than any game I have ever played, and that includes stuff like Madden that I buy every year.... Even with the lack of DLC for PS3, and the massive amount of bug/freezes in that version, I will play it over and over just to see what happens when I choose different paths...

I did beat the game and I have to admit the main quest WAS good. (The story more so than the actual missions but still. I agree that the story was one of the most captivating I've ever seen.) Maybe it's because I'm OCD and have to play every possible mission, but it seemed like after I had done all of the side missions the main campaign was short and easy, and perhaps spending so much time on the side missions clouded my judgment on the game overall, but I still thought on the whole it was kind of boring.

The only thing that made it worth it was seeing how the story was going to unfold.

I LOVED Deus Ex. Mass Effect is nowhere near as good as that game. Mass Effect is OK, but it did bore me. I couldn't wait to finish it and I only played through it once. I've played through Fallout 3 twice now and I've played through the Witcher twice. Both the Witcher and Fallout 3 are waaaay longer than Mass Effect also.

BTW, I don't HATE Mass Effect. It just underwhelmed me. I guess I had high expectations for it because I was following the development of that game for a long time. Kind of the same deal with Too Human...I couldn't wait for that game to come out and I was severely disappointed in the final product. It had it's bright spots, but didn't live up to the hype.

Yeah I didn't like Deus Ex 2. It's been a while so maybe they will get back to what made the first one so good.

It could be good. Im going to try not to get too excited cause then its way to easy to get let down

I've seen one preview for it, with very very early in game shots. If it stays as is, it's going to be a gorgeous game....I liked some of the ideas they threw around in the interview as well....I'm actually looking forward it.
