The game is well-known and well-liked, especially among Bioware fans; but what sets it apart from other (and arguably better) games made by Bioware is its futuristic setting and the — dare I say it — presence of Shepard’s personality. Many Bioware games don’t give the player character a set personality, instead choosing to leave the personality setting up to the players, but this can lead to a player feeling distanced from their avatars, instead choosing to “bond” with the other characters instead.
