    I love your explanation of biotics (4:20-4:40)
    You sound extremely excited about it, like you're describing it to the first person you could find after doing it. Normally you sound very mature in your descriptions, but there you just sound like you're a kid. =)

    Sessler nails it. His review is exactly what I felt playing the game. The game moves constantly by drawing you into it and making you want to keep going because it`s such a damn interesting story told with lifelike graphics and physics!

    Adam Sessler, you just did a great game some well deserved justice.
    as soon as i saw this vid, i went out and bought ME2.
    I truly can only remember one other game that got me so excited to lose 30 hours of my life, which was Oblivion. I think what you said about Bethesda and Bioware was spot on, and it was cool to hear someone say my exact thoughts on a web show right in front of me.
    Bethesda and Bioware have definitly changed the game now on rpgs, and i'm very excited for whats to come in the future.

    I never finished the first Mass Effect.
    I wanted to make a run through it before begining Mass Effect 2, but I can't find the "advice" that Adam talks about.
    Anyone know where it is?

    So, after playing Mass Effect 2, is Uncharted 2 still your best single player experience in recent memory?

    I am so thankful for the century in which I reside. This game is what I dreamed so many games would be throughout my childhood (and time and time again my childhood was disappointed). The dialogue trees are an interesting interpretation of the essence of human morality. I think that human rationale could be summed up with a similar "tree" analogy and to manipulate these trees for the purpose of interacting with virtual characters is simply astonishing. Come to think of it, the only time I've ever cared about the emotions of side characters in games past was when they were dying (i.e. Sniper Wolf in MGS1). I will digress by simply saying....Adam, I have those dreams too.

    This game is simply amazing. I just beat it and I hope that Bioware releases Mass Effect 3 before the end of 2010. I know it won't happen. I'll just wish for it. But never have I felt more involved in a video game since Final Fantasy 6. My cons for the game are similar to yours, the mining mini "chore" was boring. That and hacking and bypassing. Bioware needs to take a cue from JRPGs when it comes to mini games, they know how to make those funs.

    I never understood the "I must get (insert game) on the first day" mentality but Mass Effect 1 was my favorite game that year so I knew #2 was going to be 60 bucks well spent

    It sounds creepy, but the best games I play are the ones that make me look at the world...slightly askew. Prince of Persia: Sands of Time made me look at the whole world like it was a jumping puzzle. "If I run along this wall instead of taking the stairs I could grab onto my bookcase there and...probably break my neck." Left4Dead made me consider whether I should just barricade my home as much as possible in case of a zombie apocalypse, or where to group together with my buddies, and if that was a better strategy. "Extra guns are good, but that guy's liable to set me on fire when he tries throwing molotovs..."

    Dreaming of dialogue trees, you say? Very promising.

    I plan after finishing ME3 to play through ME1, ME2, ME3 again to get the full punch of the plot.

    Adam, That last comment totally proves to me how amazing and involving the game is. Your explanation of the combat and watching the gameplay over your shoulder just really turned me on to the game. Now I REALLY need to play the first so I can jump into the amazing sequel.
