Many of us here at Kotaku like Mass Effect. And as people who like Mass Effect are wont to do, we really like to talk about its protagonist, Commander Shepard. Specifically, we like to talk about our Commander Shepard.
You see, despite the guy on the box, the main character in the actual game can look like... well, like just about anyone. Man, woman, black, white; the hero of the Mass Effect saga can never be thought of as one person. That fact may well be the game's single coolest feature.
