Is anyone still playing this game?
I picked C. I'll probably play it sometime... soon? As of right now, I am listening to the soundtrack. I'm just wondering this 'cause I think its weird how there was a lot of talk about it, and then it all of a sudden died down quickly. Like its old news now; maybe that happens with every game, big or small, but this just seems a bit significant. It just kind of feels like everyone's over it now, is that somewhat true, or is there a lot of you still playing it? Also, does Mass Effect 3 (already) seem like a contender for game of the year? That's probably a near impossible question since a lot of the games most of us want to play haven't come out yet, but still, I ask.
i finished the SP a few weeks ago, thought it was great. really enjoyed it.
but other game have come out since then and now im playing them. but this always happens with me i play a game. i finish it. i move on. curently playing the witcher 2 EE on the PC. and once im done with that i'l move on again i suppose.
I kinda ran through the story in less than a week (which is pretty fast for me cause I like to take my time with new games, especially RPGs) but the story grabbed me and I couldn't stop until I finished the game. So now that I have I want to go back to ME2 and finish off the DLCs for my FemShep before I import to ME3 for the epic conclusion.

As I was playing, I thought there was a good chance of it being my personal GOTY. After the ending, it will be lucky to make it into the top five, unless they do something REALLY amazing with that extended DLC. That's especially true with Borderlands 2, BioShock Infinite, and loads of other amazing looking games set for a 2012 release.
Also, I played for about 2 hours tonight. Mutliplayer is loads of fun. I finally unlocked every class. Still need my Black Widow, though.
Stopped playing the game. I have now collected every war asset that is able to scan in the Milky Way, but have some left on the Citadel to collect. I also have 56% Galactic Readiness. Completed Main Story with the worst Destroy ending. But i will return when the DLC comes out.
I played through it twice and played a tonne of multiplayer, hope to return to it soon. The Witcher 2 dislodged it from my disc tray and now that I've finished that I'm moving onto some other stuff. I'm sure I'll let it sink it's claws back into me soon enough, though. Love the game, I know, that makes me human excrement etc.
Working on my NG+ insanity run right now, plus re-earning the achievements I lost when there was that weird XBL bug about two days after ME3's launch that caused achievements to disappear. I'll be stopping at the Cerberus assault to wait for the "more detailed" ending.
Recently I decided to make a new character starting all the way back with the original ME. This time around I was going to finally play a Renegade character. Before I had tried this and just couldn't bring myself to make some of the horrible decisions that would basically end lives and fuck over entire races of aliens although now it seems kinda humorous. Currently I'm finishing up with my Renegade male shep on ME2 and once finished there I'll start seeing how all these bad choices come to bite him in the ass in ME3.
Was very excited before release. Played about a day of SP and haven't touched it since. Got to force myself through it one of these days. Really hate the reapers-hunting-you-on-map mechanic. Talk about adding NOTHING to the game.
I've played way more MP than SP, which is just fucking weird.
@eloj: You have to beat it, it's great. I mean, I can count the amount of things I dislike, some of which are stuff they probably couldn't fix since it's technical. You have to beat it.
@AhmadMetallic: Seriously? Huh, do you like the action parts though at least? Like the main mission stuff?
@Pinworm45: Yeah, I thought I was going to do that, and I still am, but just recently I started playing on my third play through and now I'm almost done again (well, I'm doing the Rannoch stuff). I wanted to be fully upgraded and have everything bought by the time any DLC comes out. All the negative stuff about it didn't have a "mass [e]ffect" on my opinion enough for me to not really enjoy my time with it. See what I did there? Ha ha ha, OK, sorry, that was dumb.
@SmasheControllers: Personally I felt like my choices didn't matter. I only went through the game once but I felt like every "decision" I had in 3 didn't matter at all. I also felt that choices from previous games didn't matter at all either. I saved the rachni queen, so she appears in 3, great that's what was supposed to happen. But if I kill her the Reapers some how clone new rachni? Come on, change it up at that point. Everything felt rushed and unfinished. The stupid reapers chasing you in a system, I actually MISSED mineral hunting, that was a shock. I come to the series for dialogue and politics when I look back on ME 1 and 2, not action, and that's what ME3 was trying to be I felt like, an action game like CoD or Halo. I don't know what they could have done differently that would make it better in my eyes, that's not my job, but when it was all said and done, I just didn't enjoy it all.
I got hooked on multiplayer. I liked playing with other people to level up my character(s). One thing I don't like about multiplayer is that mission packs always give out shotguns or sniper rifles the most. I also went back to single player and talked to everybody--Citadel and the Normandy-- after each mission to collect more war assets. Once the priority missions are done, some of the side stuff goes away. I will wait and see about dlc coming out in the summer.
