what is the biggest thing you experienced on a second playthrough

#1 Edited by Jamer91 (132 posts) -

Over this week end I decided to play through mass effect again using my first character and I realized that it is a much deeper game then I first realized. During my first play through I only saw what the main questline had to offer and didnt see much of the side quests. during my second playthrough however I am talking to everyone I see and fixing all of their problems. not only am I hoping to see more of the story this way but also earn a few more achievements. overall the biggest thing I experienced so far on my second play through is the mission on earths moon. I thought it was really cool landing on such a familiar planet and seeing earth in the background.
 
What is the coolest thing you have experienced during a second playthrough of Mass Effect?

I totally OCD-d my way through that game the first time, so the DLC that I begrudgingly bought was the only addition on my second playthrough...that and all the stuff from the ME1 save that I imported.

That was awesome. So far I haven't been able to get there in ME2. I am disappoint. 
 
I'm almost always very thorough my first time through games, so I'm having a hard time recalling anything mind-blowing on my second playthrough.

Man, my second playthrough was crazy. Mainly because my first run was just straight main story and no side quests.

Nothing too mindblowing, but I liked how they reacted to Shepard, no matter what you say, paragon or renegade, it always sound like a fluid conversation...
 
Untill the random "I should go".

I still need to play through it once let alone twice. I got both mass effect 1 and 2, but Ive been so over saturated with games and school work I cant focus on one game at a time. 
 
 Ive currently got campaigns going in kane and lynch 2, black ops, dead rising 2, GTA: episodes from liberty city, red faction guerrilla, saints row 2, crysis, dirt 2, torchlight, serious sam HD: the first encounter, zombie driver, vampire the masquerade bloodlines, amnesia, alien vs. predator, fallout new vegas, plus the psp games I have. 
 
 Not to mention I have a debate tomorrow I need to fix the outline and add more sources, I have 3 art pieces to do in illustrator, find a workbook that got lost in the school mail I need to get to my teacher, 4 chairs and a table for creativity class (half the size of normal chairs and a table). I haven't even said anything about the stack of books Ive gotten I still haven't finished reading.

Mass Effect is one of those games that you can play in short periods of time. its a huge rpg so you arent expected to finish it in one night. the missions (especially the side quests) are ussually pretty short so its a great game to play if you have homework or other things to do since you can pick it up, play a quest quickly and get back to what you were doing :). you should definitely play it when you have the time.

I just finished my first playthrough. I am going to go through it one more time, at least. I was pretty OCD for the first half of the game, but then I decided to just do the main story line because I was deeply drawn to the story. I think on my second playthrough I will try to get everything.  
 
I did the Moon on my first playthrough and thought that mission was pretty interesting.
