Mass Effect's Future is Brightest Without Shepard

Hardcore Gamer: In order to continue with Shepard, the writers would have to declare one ending canon, which I feel betrays the core idea of allowing players to shape their own story. Bioware already took a ton of heat from fans for the lack of impact major decisions had on the end of the trilogy, further nullifying player choice by declaring one ending canon would only drive more fans away. (Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

True, but Mass Effect won't be the same for me without Shepard.

I think something along the lines of DA: Origins in which u can pick and customize ur hero from like 5 different races with different beginnings. Then u move on, meet new characters, form parties and so on. I would love to see a return to more rpg elements but who knows. I did love ME3 multiplayer and thought it was highly underrated.

The Multiplayer was just another nail in the coffin, but i agree with the rest of what you said.

I agree, the changes from ME to ME2 took out a lot of the atmosphere that made the first game so immersive. Although the combat was vastly better in the second IMO, smaller hub worlds, no planet exploration and even the absence of little effects like the Normandy actually staying docked on planets and the decontamination procedure made ME2 feel less atmospheric.

Streamlined for mass appeal...

Honestly, while I love the deep-pocket resources a big company like EA provides in development, I think one of the biggest hindrances to the real creative genius of the Mass Effect series was the constraint of time. I firmly believe that Mass Effect 3 should have been delayed. And I also believe that if it weren't for EA, it would have been.

The Bioware I knew would never have tied off such a beloved franchise with such a half-assed bow.

What a joke. There is no Mass Effect without Shep. Just a lame attempt to conjure nostalgia for a franchise that couldn't manage to end itself properly. Someone needed a course in creative writing.
