When I start a RPG, I tend to die immediately in the first enemy encounter. Mass Effect was no different.

Lydia’s undying love for Mass Effect and my lack of knowledge of the game caused her to buy it for me. Despite having some difficulties near the beginning, I had a lot of fun. Mass Effect’s story was engaging and I especially loved how your decisions will carry over to the next game. The only thing I didn’t like was exploring the barren worlds for minerals to complete assignments. I’ll probably play a second time since Lydia and David said my decisions were all over the place. To name a few: I let the Rachni queen free, allowed the Council to die, and didn’t have a love interest. Plus Wrex died, which I didn’t want to happen. If that didn’t make any sense to you, it’s okay.
