By the way, I have enough time to talk about Mass Effect 2 because I'm sick and have to rest up to go to my job because I'm in a situation where if I can't go in, there is NO ONE to replace me. So my work better appreciate me, because I would've gone LARPing and compromised my health today if I wasn't such a nice person.
Sorry, I try not to get that bitter in my posts.
Anyway, Mass Effect 2 is definitely darker and grittier than before. I'm not going to get into why until I'm done with this game, but trust me, it really is.
However, there is always a silver lining to every space cloud, and that silver lining in ME2 is the incredible amount of space lovin' available. In the last game a character of either gender had only 2 romance options. I mean, that's more than enough for me but whatever. But now, you have a plethora of options.
This video pretty much covers all of them.
