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?

    Is Dwarf Fortress considered an "old game"?

    Honestly, the nostalgia is much more vibrant than the reality ever was. I've tried Star Control 2 again and it just did not stick to me. I've tried the vanilla WoW and burned out in about 3 months. Tried Diablo 1 and switched to Path of Exile. Tried Master of Magic with community fixes and it was a different game. Only M.A.X. is still the same as a feeling, together with the hangs and crashes.

    Diablo 2 is the game people play for nostalgia, not Diablo 1. Except that you can add Median XL and PlugY to it to get a new experience.
