*unimpressed clapping gif* Don't care so much about following mainstream. 'Mainstream' is basically an illusion, everyone does their own thing.

Hmm yeah well if you've already started playing ME1 on your Steam, and your PC can run it well, then I say go ahead and get 2 and 3 for PC. There are framerate and minor graphical issues in all ME games on PS3 I found.
I thought graphics would be the only concern, but glancing over the other comments it looks like Origin and gamepad support might be other factors to consider? If only graphics were a concern, then PC by a longshot (as is usually the case).
Regardless I played the ME games on PS3 and enjoyed them very much. You're in for a real treat regardless of how you play the game!
I was half expecting some discussion of how Aiden is a surrogate for the player, so pronouncing it as "I-din" is actually a subtle hint at the "I" who is the player himself.
But nope, it's just a pronunciation quibble. If someone wants you to pronounce their name a certain way, and they have been called it that way since the day they were born (or similar), I don't see what the big deal is, you pronounce it the way they want. Purposefully not pronouncing their name the way they want is almost like giving them a nickname, which of course depending on how close you are to the person, could be taken in any number of ways.
No, spoilers just give you more knowledge. Knowledge that changes your experience of the story/game and how you approach or interpret that story/game. Whether or not your experience changes for better or worse is up to you.
You forgot Metal Gear Solid 5. That, Quantum Break and Persona 5 *crosses fingers* are enough to make me super excited for 2014.
So I played MGS4 when it came out, loved it. Recently bought the Legacy Collection, started with Peacewalker and recently finished it. I am so hype for MGSV!!!
Anyways, so I decided to start playing MGS2 next, I'm ~3 hours in but I'm getting my ass handed to me! The controls just feel totally weird and unintuitive and enemies go into alert on the drop of a pin. Is it bad that I want to start over from the beginning and play it on Very Easy with the Radar always on? On the other hand I feel like that would be taking it too far, and playing it on Very Easy might lose a lot of the tension that is built into the story and gameplay.
Any suggestions on what to do adapt to MGS2 coming from 4/Peacewalker would be much appreciated.. or make me feel better about playing the game on Very Easy... I've just gotten so used to tranqing or CQCing everybody that I'm finding it really strange to play MGS2.
@video_game_king: Umm no, just because something "comes naturally" to you doesn't mean it isn't governed by complex processes. Even if you aren't conscious of half those complex processes anymore because it is your first language and you are fluent in it. 4 year olds are capable of grammar, they probably wouldn't be able to explain to you how they are learning words and making sentences, but their brain is changing in a pretty dynamic way to make the use of language possible. So yeah, just to repeat, both learning and using a language is creative and dynamic. How you use language can vary depending on circumstances (who you are talking to, what tone you want to set, where you are, are you writing a formal essay or a post in an online forum?) So, I don't see anything wrong with the various uses of "literally".
