Neither, it just needs to go away. Their just going to keep digging that hole deeper until every last bit of what made ME good is gone. (Assuming you aren't like me, in which case its already long gone.)

New IP would be a better way to go IMO.

Unless it's like ME1 (the best in the series), then neither. But in all seriousness, I don't see where they can go with the series anymore. It's over.

They could make a spin-off story that is set during the events of the ME series, adapting the story depending on choices made by Shep. Of course, the game would feature a new protagonist - for this, I could imagine you picking a race, class and origin akin to Dragon Age Origins.

The game would let you perceive the most significant events that unfold in the wake of Shep's many decisions, through the eyes of one of the implicated races. Imagine playing as a Krogan, struggeling to find a cure for the genophage, or a Salarian trying to prevent this.

Or as a Quarian on his/her pilgrimage amidst all that is going on, a geth who gains a conscience or even a Batarian witnessing his entire system being wiped out.

The game could lead you into an "N7" crew akin to those of ME3's Multiplayer - having you scour the galaxy, rescueing survivors from the Reaper / Collector invasions.

It would be a character/story centric game based on the events made by the players in the original games - the backdrop story, of course, being the main ME storyline, but the "little" story of the individual amidst the turmoil imo, would be just as (if not more) interesting.

There is no shortage of stories to tell

Brilliant. Go work for Bioware and make it happen.

Sequel with Liara and Garrus as heads of the Mass Effect squadmates trying to keep on with Shep's "legacy"
