How Fans Used Social Media to Make History for all Gamers

If you’re serious about video games, you’re serious about the time you spend putting into them. This same rule applies to the players of BioWare‘s Mass Effect trilogy.

The Mass Effect series is a really successful science fiction, action role playing game that was released in 2007. The games follow a player created character named Commander Shepard and his/her mission to save the galaxy from a race of mechanical beings known as Reapers.

Throughout the game, you are prompted to make ‘decisions’ that will ultimately lead up to a unique ending (based on the decisions you’ve made). Although, Mass Effect is different from other role playing series in that the character’s data  you’ve created in previous games transfer over from game to game.
