Epic Win for M.E. 2!!
Out of 100 games hand-picked by the IGN team we have a winner! Ding ding ding! Mass Effect 2 has been declared the #1 video game of the modern console era, that’s right Uncharted series got nothing on this! “You ain’t no weeble-wobble.” (Daniel Tosh) Here’s the link to get you started if you have missed out on this awesome game: http://www.ign.com/top/modern-games/1
Also, epic win for the Xbox 360 which in most video game circles is considered the “multi-player system” while PS3 is often regarded as the “story-game system”. I realize Mass Effect 2 is on PS3 (breaks my heart) but it’s still 60 bucks and Xbox 360 (19 dollars) had it exclusively for over a year. And PS3 doesn’t even have the first one so what’s the point in playing M.E. 2 if your decisions can’t carry over from the first game? That’s what makes the Mass Effect experience what it is.
There is no excuse for anybody to not play this game anymore because let’s just be real “that shit is…. awesome!” (Ves Aldridge, even though he hasn’t played it, he likes to say what I just quoted). IGN certainly thinks so and they seem to know what they are talking about.
Boys and Girls get your Commander Shephard on… now! Or if you have been embodying that badass recently or just don’t want to play Mass Effect 2 again here’s the rest of the top 10:
#2 – Bioshock
