His is pretty much the only opinion on this game I'm actually interested in hearing. His hangups with the first game matched many of my own at the time. I was never able to make it more than about 5 hours in due to having huge issues with many aspects of the gameplay, and finding out that many people hold that game in higher regard than Mass Effect 2 was actually one of the most surprising things I've ever come across. A game can have a fascinating world and story, but if the moment to moment gameplay turns me off I'll never manage to make it through it. Riding horses, the act of shooting and just general gameplay always felt off to me. I've always been kind of bummed about that because everything surrounding that framework seemed like an incredible achievement, but I just couldn't trudge through the way the game felt to me personally. That seemed to be how Jeff fell in a lot of respects at the time as well. If he finds even a bit of enjoyment out of this one while everyone else is singing its praises to the moon and back as I suspect they will I will probably try it, but without that I will likely just hear the story during the game of the year stuff.
