The Mass Effect universe is one of the best of its kind. Hundreds of species, ships and locations are what makes the world of Mass Effect so immersive.
But of all the things I love about the Mass Effect universe, the characters are on the very top of my list. When I had to choose between Ashley and Kaidan on Virmire, I just couldn't make up my mind. When I managed to save my entire squad after the suicide mission, I breathe a sigh of relief that I hadn't lost anyone. It's moments like those that remind me why I love Mass Effect.
And what's especially great about the characters in Mass Effect are the long conversations you can have with them, that can actually change the very outcome of the game. And I'm not just talking about them potentially dying in the suicide mission. If you regularly talk with your squad mates and help them through their tough times, you can actually choose to romance them, a feature you don't often see in video games. And there's not just one or two persons you can romance, no, you actually have 12 romance options.
Personally I always choose Liara T'Soni as my love interest. From the very start she appealed to me most, and as such I was very pleased that I got to meet her on the ship again after Lair of the Shadow Broker.
But that's just my opinion. Who is your favorite love interest? We've set up a Love Interest Top 10 at our Wikia Gaming Wiki that you can vote on, so we'll finally know who the community likes best!
Next week we'll post a blog with the results, and we'll finally know which love interest the Mass Effect Wiki community prefers!
