“Why Mass Effect is Some of the Best Science Fiction Ever Made”

At the Guardian, Tauriq Moosa writes about the Mass Effect Trilogy. “This year, when everyone has been encouraged to isolate and death has been omnipresent, experiencing a grand narrative of community has been fulfilling. Mass Effect carefully balances the personal and the political in Shepard’s place in the story: helping some lowly community encourages a large corporation to send aid; befriending one alien leads that alien’s entire civilisation to help humanity. The personal is the political, but it is also the thread stitching diverse groups together.”
