You must always lose something to truly learn what you had.

She was always lying to me. I'd read my mail, go talk to Mordin and come back and she'd say "You have a new message!" and I'd check and there was NOTHING! She's supposed to be paying attention to these things but she didn't see me read them earlier!?

Why are people calling Miranda an overachiever? She's supposed to be the perfect woman. It is impossible for her to overachieve.

To the "piss-filled" comment: Gamers omit things they don't like (hence, the fantasy in Fantasy Role Play :-p).

In real life, people wouldn't speak to Jack without seeing the results of at least four different AIDS tests, would never think about humping a black-eyed lizard Altair and wouldn't, in all likeness, reload their life after each gunshot :-p. But in a game like ME2, we can paint our alter-ego's perception with a much wider brush.

Because of this, the very real thought of Tali being an unwashed, rancid, bald, pale half-woman half-chicken hybrid virgin just goes *poof*. And I should know, when I'm romancing her, I just imagine this (scroll down):

Now that's a spicy piss-filled meatball :-ppp.


Man has a point. If Wrex were a romance option I guarantee 90% of the fanbase would have jumped his four testicles in half a second, yet in real life you would stay as far as humanly possible for a giant lizard with a "I will kill you because I can" attitude. The majority of people I imagine have an embedded image of how Tali appears by their preference, likely related to a known individual of similar characteristics hence the easy attraction to her personality and ultimately why should Bioware reveal her it could be a hilarious nightmare.

I must say however even in real life where I do not over emphasize my personality (Renegade), I would still shove a gun in Conrad's face. :P

I enjoyed her personality, as she was just happy to be off a ship. Everything you did was new to her, rightfully so of course, since shes running with Shepard. Imagine meeting a guy who takes you on a voyage with him to save the world....there would be a lot of questions .

I like that she isn't forcing her feelings on the character, ala Jack, ala Ashley. Some characters come off too strong. I would imagine people "love" tali because of the intrigue; "whats behind the mask" coupled with the "hot bod". I'm honestly surprised Samara isn't in the top 3 , considering the obvious. I guess the kids playing the game have no idea what a MILF is, either way I can see how the "teen-ish" Tali can be liked more than the more mature characters.

I actually like Thane, he is the definition of three dimensional. A mass effect with Thane as the lead would be nice to see...minus the heat sink clips...

I like her personality the most out of all the characters, I've always liked socially awkward, brainy tomboys.

As anyone who knows me would tell you, promiscuous, tattoo-covered women filled with crazy are my thing.

But then again, I have never had an HIV test myself... so. [ponders his life]
