I'm kind of surprised how many sequels you guys play from series you don't "get" =P
As for Mass Effect/Mass Effect 2, the same 360 toting friend convinced me it was better and I couldn't think of anything else I wanted to play at the time. No way I'm buying the third. Hell, judging by how Dragon Age 2 turned out I don't think I'll be buying a Bioware game for a while.

I also like the storyline stuff, though I haven't played alpha protocol for the comparison (did just get a free copy from dixons' new digital site though ) ).
The Witcher 1 and 2 (so far) are both very good games, but I'll never understand the seemingly endless adulation for either game as RPG of the generation. In terms of mechanics I preferred the combat systems in both Oblivion and Dragon Age and in terms of narrative I think games like Alpha Protocol did a lot more interesting, branching, stuff with its story than the Witcher 1.
