I agree. A Sci-fi RPG would have to be awfully bad for me to pass it up, and Mass Effect comes nowhere close to being a bad game. I paid near full price for it. I don't regret it, but if I'd had my way it would have had a more standard inventory system and less cinematic dialogue.

I may be goofy, and I'm sure I'm in the minority in that I'd usually rather just read well-written dialogue than hear it spoken and have it acted out, maybe for the same reason I'd rather read a book than see the movie equivalent. Though I like Bioware games, I don't care for the way they've handled dialogue since NWN2 or maybe even before (Jade Empire?). I sometimes feel like I'm watching more than doing.
