Hey guys, I just finished mass effect 2 (Which I stupidly started before 1) a bit earlier than I expected and I think I have time to play through one more game before skyrim. I was wondering which one of these games I should play, the prequel to the game I just played or a game that I've been wanting to play for a long time.Thanks :)

Hard to say, if you like streamlined SRPGs alot, then just go for VC, as ME1 might change your opinion about ME2 in terms of gameplay: and you already got the jist of ME1's plot cause of ME2.

Hmmm I certainly like SRPGs, I think I'm leaning towards VC so far

Valkyria Chronicles. No contest.

The fact that this even needs to be asked is insulting in and of itself.

I like SRPG, and Valkyria Chronicles was quite unique and different. Based on your preference, I say get VC if not, watch more gameplay vids for both games before deciding.

I think VC is a huge let down and overhyped. Story is lame with typical anime cliched characters and weird mood switches. The combat element is interesting at first until you realize that it basically is just every other tactical rpg and the tpser elements are just a waste of time. Game would have been better with out them. Also the the chapter structure is annoying with several of them being nothing but long boring story scenes before finally reaching a battle.

As for ME1 its an amazing game and worthwhile to play however you really screwed yourself by not playing it first. ME2 made huge improvements over it and a big part of ME2's draw is to see all the decisions from ME1 carry over to it.
