Good review! And hey...

From a girl's point of view,
This review is from: Mass Effect Trilogy - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
I, as an occasional gamer, had a prejudice against shooters, mostly because I find it easier to chop an enemy to pieces with a sword rather than aim with ranged weapons. But these games taught me to enjoy shooting an enemy's head with a gun. I won the head-shot trophy in every game.
Plus, awesome story. I won't be giving any spoilers, but it's enjoyable at all times. Mass Effect 3 actually made me cry. I'm a sensible person, but normally I don't cry with games. But after 3 games of growing to love the characters, and in my case, fangirling over a few of them, you can get teary.
About the trilogy as a product, great price in my opinion, and having all ME1 and ME2 DLCs is a big advantage. There are codes for free download of ME3 multiplayer and other armor customization and weapons (Ps3 version). I was midway through ME2 when I realized there was this middle ages looking armor with a red dragon in the chest, and my Dragon Age fangirl days came back to me. I wore it in the game, and I couldn't stop laughing over a knight in shiny armor saving the galaxy.
Anyway, every other thing I could mention about the game per-se has probably already been mentioned by other reviews. I just wanted to state that the quality of this trilogy is so good, that a girl like me, which takes months to finish games and is bored when the game's story is not entertaining enough, was obsessed over these games and played through them in record time. It has just the right amount of everything.

Hey Virginia. I just wanted to say that I never really got into the Mass Effect games until I read your review. And excluding the gender roles here, if it was good enough to get you into playing a shooter although you don't like shooters, I figured I guess I could try it. It was like giving crack to a junkie. I absolutely LOVE this series so far. I am playing through ME1 and I just found the first DLC that came for the first game because I now have this armor that is really high so I don't think I will be dying anytime soon.
Just wanted to say thanks for the review. You made a player out of me hypothetically speaking.

So, I'm just curious, what game(s) are you referring to here? Devil May Cry?
