LOL- I just got this game- mass effect1- FOR 4$, on the daily deal from xbox dl, I have been playing the prologue and citadel chapter1, I guess, and this game seems like total BS, why so much politicking and endless banter of questions, investigations and repore? played for like 4 hours, cus I didn't know if I was even doing the right thing or not, but after watching some youtube, I see this is how to play! uuuuhhhg! BORING!!! Im just about to take the ship off to another world, but have not brought myself to play again, does this game get more interesting and get me more involved with stuff like 'shooting' ?? I LOL'd towards the end of the first chapter, as I and my crew had to save the consort, and as the fight started my player/avatar shouted " finally some action!"- I thought to myself as I laughed-' no @#&%! the last 3.5 hours were totally boring with what seems like meaning less banter. I mean should pull out a sheet of paper and be taking notes er what? I mean do I really care if that guys has a delicate leg disease, or of the commanders past history not getting his spectre-ship, or if that other guy is a robot or not? I guess I will give this game another shot soon, it does seam to have quite a following of players, but am I really looking at 20 plus hours of investing rocks and anomalies and debris? I mean I have no idea whats going on and what to do, why would spend time upgrading items and crew members, if we don't actually engage? am I really facing world after world of rhetoric here!? I hate to complain cus I got the game for $4, I just cant believe the tedium and pointless interactions. I guess im not really asking for help, I just don't get it.
