God damn it, I really want to get into ME, but I just can't bring myself to buy it on PC. I'm just too used to console gaming.
With the way my dad's used his x-box since my mother got it for him (ie zero times except when I tried to get him to play it when he first got it) though, I might just try to convince them at some point to either let me take it or buy it off of them.
I really never did PC gaming growing up. My entire history of video games has been through consoles (Sega Genesis, N64, and then every Nintendo console following). I don't like the feel of playing games on the computer (and yes, I know I could connect an x-box controller to it, but at that point I might as well just do it on the console anyway), and just as a psychological thing, it's much more relaxing for me to be able to physically remove myself from my desk/computer to play.
That's the exact context of it when you talk to Cortez though. When he mentions that, you only have those two options. Why should I be forced to pick between starting a homosexual love interest and being a dick?
