You know you've been playing too much Mass Effect when...

You know you've been playing too much Mass Effect when you see the world from a Mako point of view. In tribute to the hardiest little tank that ever was--a tank that is regularly dropped from a spaceship, can fall off cliffs and only occasionally blow a tire, is repaired with the same goo that opens tough crates and decrypts computers, and, like a cat, always lands on its feet--here are some real-life thoughts that have actually entered my mind in these very situations, inspired by my time in the Mako.


(I play the PC version)







It's true: After a long afternoon of planet exploring, I once actually sat in my car while driving down the road, repeating to myself out loud, "Don't drive off the road, it's not the Mako, don't drive off the road, it's not the Mako..." I was genuinely concerned I might do it. If a robot had walked by, I definitely would have run it down.

My girlfriend is a Mass Effect widow. I sent her a link to this page and warned her it would be awesome. She replied to all of us:

> Not awesome. Geeks.
