Some time ago, I bought the rpg Mass Effect
. Played through the first few levels and really liked the environment rendered by the Unreal Engine 3, especially the dialog scenes with the nice character models, the lightning and the tracking shots (wondering if the movement of the characters and cameras during the dialogs were scripted or generated on the fly, btw).
The game felt quite boring in the beginning, and unfortunately, still after playing 3 or 4 hours, it kept being boring. I thought I'm simply getting old, having played through dozens of RPGs already. But googling for "Mass Effect Boring" reveiled that I'm not the only one with this feeling.
Now, the DVD is lying next to my screen for several months already, and I didn't feel motivated to put it into the DVD drive again, until now. I hope this is really the fault of that game, and I'm not getting too old to enjoy playing computer games. :)
