i played through the first Mass Effect fairly recently, and i'm going to be moving on to the second one kinda soon (after i play some more Skyrim... i just made my character a vampire and i'm hanging out with Serana and Lord Harkon). i really really enjoyed it and i'm excited for more! defs looking forward to when i finally get around to playing ME2.
(also i'm playing Mass Effect as a female Shepard specifically so i can make out with Garrus. for serious, why couldn't they have made all the characters quantum sexual, so that they could potentially be in a relationship for whatever sort of Shepard you play as? plus there just aren't very many lesbian relationships in the series at all. hopefully in future Mass Effect titles Bioware/EA [i think EA is the biggest problem] will be better about it)
