Good, wouldn't want them to ruin anything else related to the Shepard story (this is coming from a huge Mass Effect fan).

Tell me about it! I'd love for them to do something set waaaay before Shepard, like the First Contact War or something

SaekoB919d ago

I completely agree, first contact war would be very interesting, I wouldn't want to go even more into the future so that it turns into god damn star wars shooting blue or red^^

I would like to see how my final decisions changed the whole universe

I'm with you. For the next ME, I want to see how all your decisions from ME 1-3 helped/ruined the universe. And I want to see real consequences.

I doubt that's going to happen since they said “Well, I can’t get into details, but the idea is that we have agreed to tell a story that doesn’t relate necessarily to any of the Shepard events at all, whatsoever.”

Ryto928d ago

If i recall correctly there were quite a few big wars in the ME back story. Could be based around the krogans. Hopefully its something completely new.

I agree with you though, definitely leave that story arc alone now.

I would like to see the game set after ME3, with a new threat/enemy and new races discovered and some of the old characters in higher positions within their cultures and a new citadel type center & possibly a Shepard clone. maybe even a story about the struggle to rebuild everything that was lost.

I would much prefer this scenario than a prequel.
Although, I like the idea of returning characters, I want Shepard to rest in peace - give us a new hero. I think it'd be a great idea to see a game where we 're-build' the ME universe while fighting off these new threats.

I'll save $60 on ME4.

If I were them I would make Mass Effect 4 & 5 at the same time.

Like the PS2 era were sequels would be release 6-12 months later and not 3-4 years later.

I just want more Mass Effect. And I'm ready for a new story line as well.

Imo Mass Effect2/3 were one of the most overhyped overrated games ever...

The original one was so much better.

SaekoB919d ago (Edited 919d ago )

Mass Effect 2 is to many the most amazing and awe-inspiring RPG ever made, I am one of those^^

raresteak928d ago

Prequel = mistake. So please don't do that.

CODallday928d ago

The exploration of 1,the story and setting of 2,and the shooting mechanics of 3 would make the perfect mass effect imo.
