I am not a gamer, nor do I pretend to be.  I do however enjoy games as a storytelling medium and in that context Mass Effect is a game in a league of it’s own.  This is by far the richest story of any game series and with it’s dynamics of being able to interact with the story in different ways it takes the medium of storytelling to a new level.  This is a format that could never be achieved in movies or books, simply because you can’t have a good/bad/male/female central lead in the same story.  Or at least if you did, it would come out pretty confusing.  Mass Effect is my personal favourite game series, though I eagerly await someone topping it.  Maybe in another 10 years or so.

Highway To Mars

Welcome to Martian Central, please take a ticket, the sheep ray will be with you shortly. Highway to Mars was created by Author Stefan Sawynok as an excuse to ramble his way through Science Fiction that he liked and to shine a light on things such as books that don't get covered all that often in fandom. Mostly covers British and American sci-fi but occasionally steps out to cover pieces from around the world. There is so much Sci-fi out there and so little time. :)
