personally, i love both the DA and ME games, despite the flaws. what's most important to me in these games are the stories and your relationship with each companion/squadmate. sure, none of the games were perfect, but i plan to get both DAI and ME4 and i can't wait for either of them.
i'm also glad that shepard's story is over. don't get me wrong, i loved shepard and the normandy crew, but i'm a sucker for tragedy or ultimate sacrifices, so ending shepard's story with his/her death for the greater good is perfect. while i find the indoctrination theory intriguing (i like elements of corruption and enemy control as well), it's just pure wishful thinking. let shepard rest in peace, knowing that the galaxy is free from the reapers and bring on the new team
Shepard saved 50000 years of development of all organic races of the galaxy... to be comparable or compare to Shepard... the new hero must do some weird feat, if not their achievement would not worth mention compare to Shepard.
They should really continue Shepard's story and embrace the indoctrination theory seeing how much it makes sense, and how awesome it would be for shepard to wake up from Harbinger's attempt on influencing him...Regardless, I'm sure ME4 will be awesome in its own right...wonder what the booty suits will look like
Why should they make a new IP with the exact same genre and theme and just throw away an established universe/franchise with characters and worlds that people already relate to? I think Mass Effect is here to stay.
IMO, Mass Effect has as much potential as Star Wars for expansion in it's universe.
they will make a sequel after 200(?maybe) years of the death of Shepard.developers say that the universe is a very big game and they do not want to focus on one hero.they can become accustomed to Dragon age where the character changes every seriesmost likely in the new part of all the characters will have new
