This is the first part of the trilogy's review, covering the first game in the series.
"The year was 2007 and I was moving around a ton. I didn’t have internet all the time and that killed me on the inside. I missed talking to friends on Live/social media sites. I was being driven up a wall and getting close to the ceiling.
Then I happened upon Mass Effect. The back of the case pulled me in within the blink of an eye. A new RPG by BioWare? Sci-fi? Extreme customization and interaction? I was screaming and throwing my money at the box demanding it get into my bag. My lack of internet had yet again let me down by allowing this release slip by me.
Did it live up to my fangirl hype though? Is Garrus the coolest best friend character around?"
