Growing Up on Mass Effect

BY STANLEY CIRIGLIANO: Growing up, video games have always been a huge part of my life. From the time I was 4 years old playing The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64. To getting the PlayStation 2 a few years later and playing Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3. Then when I was around 8 years old, I remember coming home from school one day and there it was: the Xbox 360. My stepdad had gone out and brought it for himself but in my own head, it was mine.

Since then I have always been team green. From Dead Rising to Oblivion to Halo to Gears of War. I spent a ridiculous amount of hours on Halo Reach with friends. Noble Six will always be in my heart. But there has always been one game series that has risen above the rest. One that I still replay yearly to this day.

Mass Effect.

What makes the Mass Effect and the Mass Effect Trilogy so special?

That picture from Andromeda looks like she is from an Hannibal Lectre movie lol. ME is a great franchise I love it I like the space setting the characters are memorable and great. I hate Miranda Lawson I enjoy killing her off Thane, Garrus, Zaeed, Tali, Grunt, Kasumi and EDI are my favorite characters. It was all smooth sailing until EA became a bigger threat then the Reapers ruined Bioware. You had people jumping ship at Bioware who worked on all three games and made the three games shine. I think that is why ME Andromeda fell flat the new Bioware team compared to the old Bioware team are in two different ball fields. To me Andromeda felt rushed and shoved out the door especially with EA breathing down their necks to rush the game with out care. And we all saw how that turned out with how ME Anrdomeda preformed when it came to store shelves. I walk into Gamestop I can grab a new copy of ME Anromeda for $10 and I did that. Just hope the new Bioware team a former shell of what it use to be and EA the biggest threat then the Reapers don't do a botch job on the trilogy that is suppose to come out.
