Before you say anything. Yes. Yes it is. Mass Effect 3 is everything that you’ve ever asked for in a Mass Effect game and so much more. So many times in conversations with friends over the past year have I said that I am legitimately scared for Mass Effect 3. I was the guy who was shouting from the rooftops, “There is no way they can make a better game than Mass Effect 2!” But they did, and I am here humbled and astonished at what I have witnessed. The culmination of the most epic space drama I have ever been a part of.

In keeping with my talks about Mass Effect and badass-ness, last Tuesday the Mass Effect 3 demo (including early access to the multiplayer) came out. The characters, story, and gameplay have driven me to love this series…but I have to tell you I was a little nervous about the third installment coming into this review. The trailer shown to us at the VGA’s gave me nothing to go on but “hey look there’s a new dive mechanic like in Gears of War,” and it left me more than skeptical. I’d heard many people complaining that it was becoming more Third Person Shooter than Role Playing Game. I used to scoff at the nay sayers: It’s freakin’ BioWare, they have literally never made a bad game. They even made Sonic the freakin’ Hedgehog a good RPG. But there I was, still skeptical.

You know a game I feel doesn’t get talked about as much as it should? Team Fortress 2. Valve’s comedic, strategic class-based FPS has entered my heart in ways that games like Call of Duty or Battlefield wish they could enter my wallet. Team Fortress 2 is something different to me.
When I was first given a chance to play it by my cousin, who is a huge PC gamer, I became instantly hooked by the dialogue and the overall tone of the game which is simply pure, unadulterated fun. I feel that with Gotham City Imposters coming out today, being very similar to Team Fortress 2 in its fun/comedy aims, now’s as good a time as any to give you guys the top three reasons I love Team Fortress 2.
