Mass Effect 2 Discussion
we've already played Dragon Age origins, and ME 1. Looking for something similar...
Thanks for input.

As far as your ME2 having a good storyline, it does, but it doesn't compare to ME as that was the real story. ME2 basically carries it on somewhat and is more into squad building and being a shooter than real story telling. ME may be the best story in a game I have ever experienced. I am hoping that Mass Effect 3 is awesome with the story.
I have heard of The Witcher, and I think i might check it out. I did try playing KOTOR Last night and the polygonal characters kinda threw me off, so im gonna try 2 see if i have better luck there.
Anyway thanks for the reply.
Yes ME planet scouring was bad, but not as bad as planet scanning in ME2, which was tedious at best. At least you could land on the planets and do soemthing. But like I said, the characters in two were more about building them and interactions than it was with the story overall. The story in ME was engrossing when you listened to all of the conversation intently. And while I loved how they trimmed the sub-menu down with fewer weapons, ammos and armor in 2, I didn't like how they took away the more customizable aspect of building your characters powers down to fewer categories. They both have their strengths though. I rate them equally
ME was decidedly longer if you wanted the story, otherwise one would miss it just to get through it.
Unfortunetly there are not very many choices in regards to either great storyline/romance games. BioWare pretty much sets the standards with Dragon Age and Mass Effect. My suggestion however if you are interested is maybe looking into modding, you could create a mod project for DAO that adds new companions with full based storyline and additional content, maybe even voiced? Can ask your wife if she'd like to voice some of the female characters. Maybe even get some help from other mod developers as that kinda project is no easy task. Just a suggestion.
I believe there is also simular mods already available at either social.bioware.com/ or www.dragonagenexus.com/ however they are not voiced. So if you can deal with a robot voice or none at all, they are great alternatives to expanding DAO.
+1 If space RPG's are concerned.
If you are looking for great RPG's but are not choosy about the setting then I recommend:-
1) Fallout 3
2) Oblivion (If you haven't really played it then you don't know the real essence of RPG games)
3) Dragon Age: Origins
4) Risen (Though it is very slow in the start)
There are many RPG's available in the market. Just google.
Risen should be waaaay down on the list... like bottom.
So far I'm afraid I've haven't seen a RPG as worthy as ME.
It's just an excellent game, the story might seem cliché to some, but to me it was a something really worthy of remembering. I mean the number of people that liked the game opposed to those that didn't like it is comparing the sun to the moon.
I remember Alpha Protocol had some romantic elements, it's story wasn't really bad and it was interesting the way you had to carefully choose your words for the right people.
But having a taste of ME is like driving a Porsche Carrera for some time and then trying any other RPG is like returning to some compact car that hardly goes ninety.
