I really fuckin' miss the feeling of the first Mass Effect. The atmosphere, the design, the fresh feeling of that universe, interesting characters and lore, characters that felt relatively grounded.
And three years later all my hopes were squashed by EA. All the interesting weapon mechanics, the mods and upgrades for your armour, mixing those mods with your skills, skills and abilities being two different things was neat. Thinking about how crazy the uncharted worlds must be in ME2, but only ending up playing a bunch of corridors.
