No.

Bioware's best games are RPGs, and their amazing adaptation of D&D rules for computer games.

And I argue that ME2 is NOT an RPG.

It's a new take on the 90's Interactive Movie genre.

There's no inventory management, an experience/skill/leveling system which is so watered down as to not even be worth mentioning, watered down this and that.

It's an interactive movie.

And it is fantastic.

We should applaud it for rebirthing the genre in GLORIOUS fashion.

honestly i don't care what it is..RPG/Interactive Movie call it whatever u want but the fact remains that ME1 and ME2 will always be considered one of Bioware's finest creations.

I don't think I can agree with that, when Bioware created the best, most versatile, adaptation of D&D core rules for video games ever devised and ME2 doesn't employ them. That's kind of like arguing that Martin Brodeur (he's a hockey goalie, probably the best of all time) would play his best game at right wing.

It's their greatest modern achievement, it's not what got them their name recognition.

Errrr, what?

Bioware became the leading name in RPG's right after they released Baldur's Gate.

Are you proving what I said?

MASS EFFECT 2 IS THEIR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT IN RECENT TIMES.

IT IS NOT HOWEVER WHAT MADE THEM WELL KNOWN AND CHANGE VIDEO GAME HISTORY, WHICH IS BALDUR'S GATE, THEIR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT EVER.

I felt that if I typed in all caps you could "hear" me better.
