I'm not going to sit here and go over my overall beef with Mass Effect 2. I'm just going to say that I think the game is bullshit top to bottom.
Fallout 3, for me, was a massive surprise. I spit vile venom at that game from the minute it was announced. At every turn, as a diehard Fallout fan, I felt like I was being betrayed for an Elder Scrolls ripoff. However, I'm glad that some odd thought popped into my head on launch night to go buy that fucker. It was a great game. Mind you, there were some elements that were divisive for people (I remember @jeff being particularly fucking livid about one of the ending scenarios and needed to talk about it to someone, so he e-mailed me of all people and started expounding how fucked shit was). In the long run, the futuristic aesthetic is something that I find visually pleasing, the storylines were pretty damn cool, and Oasis was easily one of the best quests EVER in a video game. Poor ol' Harold.
