back in 2007 I played Mass Effect for the first time and decided to go with Liara (ash was a bitch lol)
now in 2012 I wantend to replay all of the games from scratch and do everything, and I actually hated myself for not noticing Tali before, she is the best of the all possible romance options, period.
seriously, that is the kind of girl that you'll want when you come back after you just saved the galaxy and all that, it's plain simple, really.
how could I be so blind? maybe my experience with real girls made me notice how great this character was, because I was just 13 years old and now I'm 18 (holy molly, who would have guessed of ME to be the one that would have accompanied me during my teenage years? XD)
