Top 10 Games Of This Generation – #3 – Mass Effect 2


(Original Review)

Commander Shepard has the best of friends. While there are so many wonderful aspects to Mass Effect 2, from its great combat, to its wonderful story, this is a game that I feel is defined by the relationships you make with your crew.

The premise of the game revolves around Shepard having to assemble a team to take on a seemingly impossible mission. This process takes you all over the galaxy, joining up with a few old friends and many fresh faces. As you work towards the endgame, you build a relationship with a fascinating cast of characters through the many interactions you have with them. By the end of that game, I became deeply invested in these characters and their well being.

I happened to pick up Mass Effect 2 during a time when I was unemployed. During that one week stretch, my life consisted of waking up, playing Mass Effect 2 all day, and going to bed cause I’d completely lost track of time. Though I’ve played a ton of games in my day, there are very few that I’ve binged on that hard.

This is the apex of the Mass Effect trilogy, and easily one of the best games of this generation. If the great combat, RPG mechanics or story aren’t enough to draw you in, maybe its amazing cast of characters will.

    I couldn’t agree more (big surprise). I played through the entire trilogy over 6 weeks in January/February of this year. While I loved all 3, and the theories surrounding the end of ME3 are great, ME2 is definitely the best of the 3 games. I’ve had a hankering recently to play through the trilogy again. It’s like a good series of books or a great trilogy of movies. I can see myself playing through these games once every few years to meet up with these characters again.
