Mass Effect: Popular Mechanics’ Number One Game to Buy
Popular Mechanics has chosen Mass Effect as its number one pick for game gear to buy for the holidays. The game heads up the top 5 picks of must buy game gifts. Other titles in order are Rock Band, Call of Duty 4,Super Mario Galaxy and GameFly.
There are games you show your nongaming friends—like a few minutes of Halo 3, or a few hours of Rock Band. But when you’ve happily shunned fresh air, sunlight, and nondeliverable food for a week straight, you’re playing the gamer’s equivalent of heroin—a long, dorky role-playing game. And this month, you’ll be sprawled in unwashed darkness because of Mass Effect, the best RPG to ever hit a console.
The magazine also has 5 recommendations on what not to get for the holidays. Heading up the list of infamous titles to pass on is Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock followed by Assassin’s Creed, Clive Barker’s Jericho, Ghost Squad and the Wii Zapper.
