ME is a classic. And if you don't have it, BL2 was a massive deal. Probably going to win quite a few year end awards.
Someone pointed out that BL2 came out last year. I mistakenly thought it was a Jan/Feb release but it clearly was last year in September.
Crysis is another classic but not a must buy.
I got Boarderlands 2. As for Mass Effect.. if I never have to play the first one again, I'd be just fine. I appreciate every aspect of the game but one. Scavenging for minerals and parts.
That stupid space rover needs to blow up in a fiery mess of napalm. =(
The suggestions are much appreciated though!
