What I Want To See In Mass Effect 4

Muaz at Twinfinite writes: "I wanted to preface this edition of Make It So with the caveat that I loved the original Mass Effect 3 ending, and the Extended Cut made me catatonic when I first saw it. I’m a firm believer in the creative team over at BioWare and I’m sure the next game in the Mass Effect series will live up to the high standards of its predecessor. Now this doesn’t mean that I don’t have things I would like to see. If anything, my love for the Mass Effect series got my creative juices flowing; so here’s what I want to see in Mass Effect 4."

More missions with the Mako. I was sad they cut it out of the 3rd one. I really liked the planetary exploration while in a vehicle. Then if something interesting popped up, you could jump out to explore.
I really really enjoyed the Mass Effect series and I would hate if they changed up too much with the game mechanics or choices.
The Author makes some great points about the Relays no longer working and possibly picking the main characters race would be fun too.

They need to make it like ME1.

ME1 felt like a living world with characters and a story I mostly cared about. The Citidel was awesome.

Make ME4 like ME1 + improvements and your off to a good start.

* As the story went on though, some of it got less and less epic.

Exactly. Bioware needs to get back to the rpg/exploration feel. I swear I'm the only one who seems to think ME1 was the best in the series.

ME1 reveal of the major 'enemy' is what made it so dramatic. Teased the audience, tricked them really.

The only way to appeal to the audience again would be to reveal the original race that created the Reapers. AKA the Skynet race.

There was no race that created the Reapers, as they were created by a computer AI.
Retard  +   714d ago
I was under the assumption that the Reapers destroyed their creators because they were seen as a 'threat'

So, who made the AI come to light?
aLucidMind  +   713d ago
The Leviathans, who have the same indoctrination ability and look exactly like the Reapers. The Leviathans thought they were the pinnacle of evolution and controlled lesser species. The lesser species created machines to make their lives easier and eventually created the technological singularity, basically like the Geth vs Quarians. Leviathans created the AI to preserve life because the AIs were actually slaughtering people (unlike the Geth who were largely just trying to run off the Quarians), but it went to the extreme.

It slaughtered the Leviathans, slushied them like humans were in ME2, and made Harbinger. Then proceeded to do the same to their organic subjects, leaving species not advanced enough for flight or robotics and the rest ME1 basically explains. It chose the look of the Leviathans for the Reapers as a sort of monument, I suppose.

This was all stated in the Leviathan DLC, meant to foreshadow the ending because little of that was done. It also has a few other interesting bits on a few other topics like the theory that the Rachni war was due to them being indoctrinated. Even with it spoiled a bit, it's still worth buying and playing because it does add a grander scope to the plot (unlike the Omega DLC).

Not a poor Gears clone, and bring back the RPG elements! And make it more space opera, like ME1. I felt the last 2 games were nothing more than a TPS.

Yes, to everything you said! I miss that "spacey-age" feeling from ME1.
yazter  +   714d ago
Mass Effect 2 should be the gold standard for this game.
BigPappaPump  +   714d ago
Smudboy's Bookends of Destruction. Nuff said.
Husso  +   714d ago
Just make a few spin ofs focusing on the other races.
Retard  +   714d ago
1. Mako

2. The race that created the Reapers (magically they exist)
ironfist92  +   714d ago
The Leviathan? They were in the DLC.
aLucidMind  +   714d ago
A competently done ending that doesn't require DLC, as well as the main story not being a narrative clusterfuck like ME3.
RE_L_MAYER  +   714d ago
i want to see a perfect HAPPY Mass effect 3 ending
Craigatorian  +   714d ago
I want a GOOD mass effect ending worthy of its name
BlakHavoc  +   714d ago
ME2 was the best imo, but they should incorporate some more exploring, I felt like the 3rd game kind of took that away, which was one reason whyi like the previous games so much. A little more character customizing would be nice as the author mentioned. But honestly a brand new story with different characters would be nice, maybe even introduce a couple new alien races.
