To be clear, if you liked Fallout 3 and its game play then Fallout New Vegas is pretty much the same, other than a new location, and the added benefits of companions.

That's the problem, not enough changed to make it feel different, especially game play, so after a while you become bored because you're constantly doing the same thing you did in Fallout 3.... seek, fetch, & chat em up as mickey said. It literally feels like a huge expansion instead of a separate game.

Add to this all the bugs and problems it has and it becomes something you're not in a hurry to play or finish. It's one of those I've got nothing better to do games
Yea that's why I'm glad I didn't buy it at release, as from what I saw it didn't look that great. I'll get it, for the reason you said, just for the sake of having a game to play while I wait for other stuff like Assassins Creed 3 and Crysis 2.
Good move. I made the mistake of buying the Collector's Edition on release day for $70 bucks (US)

To this day I don't think I'm half way through the game

Personally, I liked 1 better than 2, although they are both excellent.

But... its a very story driven game.

To get the most out of it, Yes, start with ME1.

Once you complete ME1, you can import your character to start 2 with. So all your choices from 1 will have some form of impact in 2.

One of the best games I've ever played has to be Metal Gear Solid on the Playstation 1.
I love stealth and tactical games!
I play Splinter Cell Conviction on OnLive mostly everyday!

In the case of Mass Effect, you really do want to play 1 first. As Wishmaster has stated, it is very story driven, and the fact that you can import your charactor from the first game does impact the second. And when Mass Effect 3 is released, the decisions from 2 will have impact as well (if you import your charactor).

Anyways I don't think you'll find many people who will tell you to forgo the first game.

As to which game is better? I love both games, but Mass Effect 1 has more of a PC feel and a better inventory system.

My two cents.

I have to say ME1 did have it's one-ups against ME2, like as you said, it had much more of an PC RPG game feel to it. The customisation was much, much better (why they took out toggable helmets I'll never know ). Though apart from that, I love both just as much really. What I love the most about both is though I've played both about 7 or 8 times and each time I played it I found something new. Not many games I've played has been like that for me. But then not many games I've played can give that amount of replay value.

We completely agree here. And yeah, removing the helmet toggle was rather dumb in my opinion. Adds more of a realistic personal touch being able to remove the helmet.

Anyway just about to finish off FEAR 2's DLC Reborn? It OK thus far. I'm a big FEAR fan as well

Been playing Test Drive Unlimited lately. This was the game that made me want to buy a 360 - lo and behold, I never did. I see now why it failed.

I bought Crysis last night, since I got my ATi 5770 and my Core 2 Quad, I wanted to see what all the fuss is about and I must say it looks amazing and plays well too.
