I really love the Mass Effect series. But, I have a feeling I'm going to end up liking the second two installments much less than the first. The stories are still good, but a huge, huge part of the enjoyment of the first game was the wonder and excitement of learning about the universe and races created to weave the story. There's not too much more to learn about that after the first game. That's going to affect any sequel, though, so I shouldn't really complain.
Anyway, on that note, I'm off to play more. We'll see if I stop sometime before Wednesday.
