Should you play mass effect 1 before you play mass effect 2? i've looked at the ign trailor and it looks way better than the first one. i played the first one for a couple of hours last year but i didn't like it much so i sold it. will the mass effect 2 story make no sence at all to me if i haven't completed the first?? i don't like playing a game and not knowing what the F*** the cut scenes are talking about. thankyou :)
