Mass Effect News; A REVOLUTIONARY TRILOGY
‘Mass Effect‘ is one of the most beloved and arguably revolutionary sagas of recent years. Although many did not like its conclusion or ‘Mass Effect: Andromeda‘, there is no denying the impact this series had.
From being one of the first games to let you choose whether you wanted to play as a man or a woman, to its possibilities for romance between characters of the same sex, ‘Mass Effect‘ was a milestone in video games.
