That's my biggest gripe about them. I beat DA2 and ME2 before realizing that I was wasting my time.
With that mentality why bother playing any game when you can just watch it on youtube?
Video games have always been time wasters. It's no different from reading a book, watching a movie or watching a video on youtube even.
EDIT:It seems you're more interested in actual gameplay rather than story/character interactions which are pretty much the main appeal for games like Mass Effect though. So I can kind of understand what you were getting at. But watching someone play the game instead of experiencing it first hand just doesn't work for me. In fact it feels like more of a waste of time than actually just popping the disc in and playing it.
