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?

    I disagree with about half your list. I mean where is Star Control II ? Master of Orion II ? Fallout 2 ? Diablo ? Wing Commander (Privateer?!)

    The list was exemplary, not exhaustive. I agree, mostly, with your selections there!

    omission of Civilization

    Oh shoot, I mentally grouped that under "sim everything" but of course Civ is Civ. Agree!

    I'd put Tradewars 2002 over LORD

    Also agree, but the gap between those who knew how to access and make use of the star computer (players could dump the inter-system mesh to get a galactic map) made TW2002 a bit awkward. Still, TW2002 - and the mods for it! - was amazing! But LORD was much more accessible, and much easier to drop into, have a bit of fun, and forget about for months. TW2002, your home planet system and citadel would be obliterated, if you left for a month on an active board.
