Ok, so I started my playthrough of the Mass Effect trilogy starting from ME1 the other week and I finished ME2 and started ME3 last night.
I’ve played 2 before but not imported from 1 with Wrex alive and Thane as my romantic option. Major feels going on. Felt like it was a good idea to transition right into 3.
FEELS. I literally spent half the opening sequence with my mouth open like a cathartic doofus. I ended last night with visiting Ashley in the hospital.
I cry and have more feels for video games than movies if that says anything about the compelling narrative power of video games, their power for immersion, ability for suspension of disbelief, and success at achieving catharsis.
I’m both excited and scared. Definitely having that feeling of pressure on my decisions now.
