Admittedly, I didn't get this game for myself. I got it for my partner, who is a huge gamer. I've always liked playing games, grew up playing a friends ps1, and spent a large amount of my childhood playing computer games and gameboy. Once I got older, I had far less time for gaming, and only played now and then, either my old ps2 or a few computer games. Then when my partner and I got together, he introduced me to his ps4. We started playing multiplayer games, and I started spending a bit more time playing it myself. When Mass Effect Andromeda arrived, he asked if I would install it for him and get it set up (as i'd just been put off work on acc for a broken foot) I never thought I would like this game, however, I decided to have a play and just see what it was like. I got hooked. Line and sinker. Absolutely love this game. I find the mix between hard line story and side missions is good, as if you get sick of doing one thing, you can mix it up and go do something else. If you like intense combat, theres plenty of that to be found, or if you like the quests and exploring more, theres plenty of that too, and you can set the game up to focus on the aspects you prefer. There is really good depth to the characters, and I love that depending on how your character reacts, responds and the decisions you make, it can change aspects of the story and even your relationship with other npcs. I would highly recommend this to a wide range of gamers, as there is something for nearly every player, and the story line is aptivating, it really makes you want to know what is going on, why it's happening and how things happened the way they did. I've heard some people picking at small things, but to me it's about the overall gameplay, and if you're going to pick holes over tiny things then you need a better hobby. Yes sometimes small things don't line up graphics wise, or there's the odd visual/graphics glitch, but it's not major and it's never detracted from my enjoyment of this game. Totally love this game!
