Mass Effect 4: 10 Ways To Fix A Broken Series

WC - When Mass Effect 3 finally landed in our collective hands in March of this year, we were all overjoyed, and then many of us were quickly disappointed when, after playing through the riveting campaign, we were handed an ending that many deemed “cheap” and “lazy”. After promising that the huge save files people had invested so much time and effort in would have a biblical impact upon on the events of the third game, gamers everywhere were let down when, in actual fact, it all came down to one single choice in the final room of the game, where you essentially pick a colour, and sit back to watch the result of that choice.

I know one more way to fix it: Stick to your promises.

O Snap! I think they'll be a little more careful next time around.

One of highest rated n highest sold game is broken? A series loved by millions of fans? Even though me3 was a stellar game but abliet dissapointing ending dnt,ruin the entire game..they fixed it with the dlc. Terrible title n article

The article sure is terrible, only by minor flaws and a few plot holes in ME3, the whole series became broken?

Anyways, im looking forward to the new Mass Effect game. It was known that ME3 would be the end of Shepards Trilogy which has been a fantastic ride but the universe Mass Effect (Bioware) has crafted doesn't ends here for sure.

Casey also said new DLC is coming such as Omega and other Single player content which im also very interested in since leviathan was pretty awesome.

As a whole i do not think the series is broken at all. It needs just a few tweaks that's all no overhaul of it required.
And Please no Co-Op or Change the whole damn game by making it an mmorpg.

What is wrong with an epic SINGLE PLAYER story driven rpg?

Bring Sheppard back and pretend the entire trilogy is canon and start from scratch. Then I'll give you a big maybe.

This series is by no means broken... in fact this series is my favourite of all time in video games.

Why are people judging an entire series, with upwards of 100 hours total gameplay, on the last 15 minutes!? The ending was not that bad, granted I would've liked scenes of what each member of the crew did after the ending, but overall I thought that it added a small dose of realism into the game - it didn't go for the typical "and they all lived happily ever after" ending because very rarely do we see that without some sort of cost, whether that be the eradication of a species, a person, or whatever.

BioWare did a smashing job on this series, and I would love to see more games in the Mass Effect universe.

But the series wasn't broken just in the last 15 minutes. Yes, that invalidated the story and pissed off a good amount of fans, but the series has been moving away from RPG elements to become a pure shooter. Bioware admitted that they focused too much on the action in ME2. In ME3, they reduced the choices on the wheel (most times you would only have 2 choices) and there was a lot of auto-dialogue, which kinda makes the whole "this is your story" pointless. Bioware isn't what it was. I don't agree with everything the author said, but the series has deviated quite a bit from what Mass Effect established.

People still think this is a broken serie and some how THEY know how to fix it, how about square enix fix the FF serie? is been dead since FFXI, and if you guys are so good at "FIXING" games how is that i havent seen a single game made by your site? and wtf is that number 1 and number 2? kill shepard and make it an mmo? lol

Stick with suggestions, fixing is a huge word for a site the only thing you can fix is the title of the article.
