Gadabout Gamers: Love Is A Game

And while games certainly played an important part in my early courtship with Rick (we did meet working in the industry, after all), I decided that for my post I would focus on one particular in-game love: Garrus Vakarian from the Mass Effect series.

N7 Day and Disappointing Video Game Romance
