I finished the last game in the Mass Effect trilogy last night and it was the most epic, beautiful, enthralling game I have ever played. The personalization and freedom of choice as well as deep, engaging characters, and an incredibly detailed universe rich in culture and diversity, made me more invested in the outcome than any game I've ever played. Even more than most TV shows or books made me invested. Bioware created a world so easy - and so desirable - to lose yourself in and characters that grow and change with you so much that they feel like real people in your life and romances so tender and real, that long after you've finished the game, long after you've finished playing it through many times with all variables, it stays with you. For the rest of your life you'll occasionally stop and think, "Man, Mass Effect was great". It's and epic on the level of Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Star Wars and will impact your life just as much.
