Meet the community still obsessing over Mass Effect 2 10 years later:

Is Mass Effect 2 the series' golden goose or its ugly duckling? As the game passes its 10th anniversary this year, the debate rages on. Many space cadets recall their time with the game through a lens of utmost fondness, while others contend its status as the most detached and defunct entry in BioWare's illustrious trilogy (Andromeda, for all its pluses and minuses, is usually not part of the same discussion).

Regardless, a decade after its release, folks from all walks of life cling to Mass Effect 2 and the events surrounding it like a vice grip, continuing to invest time, effort, and money in the maintenance of their interest long after BioWare announced its plans to discontinue the series indefinitely.

What old games are Soylentils still invested in? Starcraft? Half Life?

And for Mass Effect fans, um, Liara or Miranda?

    Battle of Britain

    Ace of Aces (Commodore 64, Atari, not PC)

    At least half of the door games out there. Anyone remember ShadowBoard, or the various hacking games?

    Uplink, just for the fucking metagame they ran alongside it.

    The Wizardry series. Jagged Alliance 1, DG, 2, UB. If you want to see where the idea for Baldur's Gate's dialog came from, go and read the dialog in Jagged Alliance. JA2 had some of the most insightful and macabre characters around.

    Mwahaha. Kinda fun, but more fun was breaking out of Renegade or Citadel themselves. Some of the less common BBSes had hilariously bad upload code and it was possible to ... well, those who remember remember, and those who don't, never did these things.
