What should be in the next Mass Effect game?

Does anyone else feel a tad disappointed? After releasing photographs of their team working on the next Mass Effect game, Bioware have left us with only a few less questions than we had before.

While it seems possible that we’ll find out more at next year’s E3, rampant speculation will have to do in the meantime. Here’s my thoughts on where I’d like the franchise to go next. (BioWare, EA, Mass Effect 4, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

Exploration. Choices w/consequences as well as political/social interaction.

Exploration is a biggie. I loved roaming round in the mako on ME1. I personally would love to see something on the first contact war.

I think another good one would be the relationships between crew members. For example, characters may have differences about other crew members etc etc, and those differences could possibly affect their abilities/stats in combat or the difficulty of a mission, if you pair up 2 members who aren't seeing eye to eye.

But definitely go back to the RPG aspect much like ME1, mixed with an updated if not new 3rd person shooting mechanics of ME3.

Every article on ME somebody says about the rpg elements of me1 but I think people say this crap so much they don't understand their own point.

Do you mean exploration? The crappy mako that everyone hated at the time?

Do you mean all the loot? Where 99% of it was useless and you just sold?

Do you mean the "tactical combat" that was actually just much better in 2&3

Customisation? I'll let you have that somewhat.

Bigger skilltrees? In me1 every class felt similar as they shared so many skills. Having less but more unique talents in sequels was better.

Look I love the first game. Maybe more than the others but I get annoyed by these mythical rpg elements that get mentioned constantly. If you think its the best then fair enough but I guarantee its not the rpg parts but story or something else

RPG goodness, easier item management then ME1, team mates that matter and ones you actually have to use, fights where you need to use cover effectively and finally cool down weapons, it's the future no more of this thermal clip bullcrap just to appeal to the casual crowd.

i can tell you what should not be in it.

TINY MICROTRANSACTIONS.

if mass effect gos down the same route as dead space ill be sad, all thou dead space is awesome and all but mass effect just has a great rpg experience and i think by being able to purchase yourself through the game would take that magic from it

@DOMination

My bad if I wasn't too in depth, and u made some good points on some of those. It's actually a combination of the story as well as the rpg elements

Sure! Exploration would be great if they're able improve on it instead of just goin to empty planets to find just 3 or 4 things. Why not have exploring planets lead to big quests/sidequests, finding rare items/materials, etc.

As far as the combat, they could of course improve on that as well. It was definitely much better in 3 (as I was saying), but could still be a lot better and not so clunky. They can also create more skills/biotics for all the classes.

Of course they could make the skill-tree a lot bigger. Why not improve on it in that it can branch off and open up new skills based on the route you decide to take. Much like Final Fantasy X's sphere grid for example.
