Garrus Vakarian in canon seemed personally enraged about Saren’s actions on Eden Prime. A colony slaughtered. A Spectre dead. Geth, everywhere. He dropped everything to see justice done when the opportunity presented itself. That’s not normal, not unless the losses and betrayals were personal. Maybe they were. Maybe… they were very personal.
Begins the tale of Mass Effect just a little early, starting in 2167. T-16 years until Eden Prime.
A story of talented people who aren’t exactly whole inside, but find those missing pieces in the warm regard of unexpected friends. Misadventure. Mass murder. Boring Council meetings. The mental dissonance of living above the law. Caffeine addictions. Spectre missions. The people behind the legends. Bullets. Many, many bullets.

In the aftermath of the Reaper War, when the Normandy’s crashlanded on an unknown garden world, Kaidan struggles with juggling his new position as Captain of the Normandy in the wake of Shepard’s fate and the dawning realization that, the more time that passes, the less likely it is he’ll see Shepard again.
Everyone’s dealing with his absence, but Joker’s the only one that gets how fresh and raw and wrong everything feels, because EDI hits him just as hard
Having recently played through the Mass Effect series, I can honestly say that nothing about it stood out to me as a “pop culture phenomena”, except for the N7 armor and Quarians. First time I met Tali'Zorah in ME1, my honest reaction was “holy shit, so THAT’S what they’re like”. Needless to say, Tali was my romance in ME2. :P
