I actually replayed ME2 once again a few months ago (first time in four years), but felt completely indifferent to the characters and skipped most of the dialog. They were always cheesy, but this time they didn't even feel fun anymore. Maybe the degeneration of the later games has fouled the entire series?
If you've read all those articles I think it's time to start playing the games now.

I don't necessarily read all the articles I post, especially if it's something I'm not that interested in ( but I think others might be ) with me often just seeing/reading the headline and forwarding it to myself for sharing here later.
