The simple lesson I learned from 369 hours of Mass Effect

Ars Technica: 369 hours.

That's nine 40-hour work weeks of time spent in the Mass Effect universe, according to the combined reports of Steam, Origin, and my creaky old Xbox 360. Eighty-six hours went into the original Mass Effect (three playthroughs), 189 hours into Mass Effect 2 (six playthroughs), and 94 hours into Mass Effect 3 (three playthroughs).

Commander Shepard and his crew—sometimes her crew, but we'll get to that—have done plenty of galaxy saving under my control. They fought aliens, robots, clones, politicians, and reporters. They stood united against enemies vast and unknowably timeless. They have, in the words of James T. Kirk, "been through death and life together."

They're my friends. (Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Not to spend 15 days on one game?
I'm joking, I still need to play the entire trilogy.

Funny. I spent a similar amount of time on mine aswell. Multiple playthroughs, all achievements/trophies obtained, every side quest complete. What did I learn? Bit of a waste of time considering none of your choices really made any difference in the end.
