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