After the dust settled and my PC was visible at the other end of the room (nah, I'm married, my wife would never allow me to let it get that bad) I installed the game and gave it another play-through.
As with the first time, I thoroughly enjoyed playing the game. Bioware sure knows how to tell a story. But there were some old annoyances too. Even with Patch 1.02 installed, some of these annoyances were still present. Below a list of eight things that would make Mass Effect 2 a better game over its older brother."
