I've never played Mass Effect 1, but I just recently rented Mass Effect 2. Since I just started playing yesterday, I haven't gotten very far (picked up Mordin and Garrus so far). Would you guys suggest that I go back and play Mass Effect 1 first? Would that be semi-necessary in order to understand some of the finer subtleties in terms of relationships, history, etc.? Or am I not missing much?
You SHOULD go play Mass Effect 1 to understand more about Mass Effect 2. The game gets quite hard to understand if you have not played the 1st one. My source came from me because i played Mass Effect 2 first D:
