I have a terrible confession to make, I never got very far in Mass Effect. It’s not because I dislike the game, it’s the time I’d have to put in to get anywhere near completion.
Time is one of the most storied magazines the world has ever seen, and while its relevance may have dipped somewhat during the internet era, it’s still seen as a respectable publication. So its first ever video game tie-in is a bit of a disappointment.
I play a lot of video games. But someday, will I be just like Andrew Leonard, a man whose life no longer has room for the leading medium of 30-hour masterpieces? That is what I fear.
