I've never been a shooter fan (I'm actually really terrible at them), but I count Mass Effect 2 as one of my favourite games. It's much more than the sum of its parts. If you do decide to play it, I'd like to know what you think.
I can't wait to start hitting on all the female characters as female shepherd. Although I am a bit disappointed by the options.Spoiler:I wanted Miranda so bad. I'm already sad.
Yeah, the lack of an F/F Miranda option was disappointing, or Jack for that matter. There's even some subtext with Tali! Though Liara comes back in LotSB, which is nice.
The F/M options are so much better in ME2 though. Kaidan was probably one of the most boring characters Bioware's ever created. He's basically a Carth ripoff (he even has the same voice, way to go BW), and all he does during his romance is make googly eyes at his commanding officer. That is until his one conversation's worth of ~Trust Issues~.
In ME2 you've got Jacob who's...okay he's boring too, but not quite as boring as Car- er Kaidan. Thane's pretty cool, though he doesn't really do anything for me personally I can see why other people might like him. Then there's Garrus. I won't go into it too much 'cuz it'll make me sound like a fangirl, but he is my absolute favourite romance option. He really benefits from the extra character development he got in ME1, because once you're a romance option all the non-romance character development is reduced (same with Tali).
