I've just pulled it back out but, I am a bit upset that they are saying Mass Effect 2 is the start of RPG/Shooter. People have not played this game this game rules as an RPG we need to go on G4 message boards and remind ppl of this game.
They think Mass Effect 2 is the start?! Morons! What were they paying attention to when this game was flying around? This is Mass Effect's granddaddy, and you should always respect your elders.
However, I do think that ME2 is the event of a gaming trend where RPG traits are fusing with other genres. Like pretty soon super mario is gonna start leveling up so you can put points into "Jump" skills and moustache growth rates. More people are starting to like the idea of the game hero gaining better abilities that you choose after so much playing time on the player's part.
"Kerr Avon" hits the nail on the head. Between work, relationships, 2 bands, etc...etc... I don't have the time to spend that I used to playing video games. Still, I will visit this board occasionally and throw D Ex in and pick up wherever I left off...it's been so long I have no idea where I may be in the game at this point...but true classics never die.
