Curious question. I'm trying to get my dad and his girlfriend into cutting the cord with cable and part of it is trying to get my dad into pc games. He is a star trek nerd and thought Mass Effect would have the same kind of feel. which leads to my actual question.
Does Mass Effect 1 have enough charm or is the combat too much of a pain? this would be his first shooter kind of campaign. I think the powers help make it cooler/super solider. I had started at Mass Effect 2 and went back but I dont think I needed it but it helped understand the lore plus you have all your choices and what not. Mass Effect 2 is great but is the slow start to slow to get into it to show to casuals?
