A Mass Effect MMO? Or maybe spin off games where you are not playing as Shepard?
if they make an MMO I hope they don't dumb down the guns blazing action
Originality fail :s
Not a good thing imo, If they create new games in the same game world then fair enough, but dont start another endless EA sequel fest
Endless sequels would suck. Spinoffs, on the other hand, would rock. ME universe RTS? Mass Effect Online?
I must say that although i fear these multiple ME games getting EA's kiss of the Sims i do like the idea that previous decisions in the series will affect your current game. This would have to be a feature that you can toggle and should you not want it you should be able to start with a paladin/renegade prone character should you wish to try things another way without starting a new character.
They could easily make a pure shooter game in the ME universe.
An EVE style MMO perhaps?
An RTS for a war between the races, perhaps prequels for previous wars?
"Some of the decisions you made in 1 you'll see the result in 3," he said. "There will be stuff that you will feel is yours that you've created in that third iteration."
just how long can they keep that up for and still have the results genuinely diffrent? just how much code are they willing to program that won't ever get used by more than the three people who replay it all to get all six trillion possible endings?
or is it all just going to be slight variations in the way they string together the words around the action, until they reach Steven Hawking levels of voice acting over identical cutscenes.....
I vote for a Freelancer style Mass Effect game.
We need a greater debate on this, so that we can all go home and say we had a good 'Mass' debate.
Oh god yes!!!
ha, it takes the piss that Razor have released Mass Effect 2 already while if you buy it on Steam it says: Available: 29 January 2010
This game will unlock in approximately 1 week, and 1 hour
I think they should unlock it now as a thank you to people who are actually buying it!
I still need to play the first after buying it in the Steam Christmas sale.

Good that they told us to save a savegame in advance...oh wait, they didn`t
damn, reviews due out next week conflict with me playing a leaked copy.
Total PC Gaming gave the game 10/10 in the new mag out yesterday!
Yeah the base is definitely there and I've always been a big fan of franchises expanding. They just have to be careful early on with how they expand the world and very careful not to muddy it with poor games. Heck this could be the next star wars... or just die out after a few years depending on how it's done.
And with the acquisition by EA my money's on the latter...
I don't think the spin offs are such a good idea. Even if they were to create another trilogy 1000 years in the future, surely decisions such as
killing off the council
in ME1 would have some affect on how the universe looks even that far ahead.
They could make a prequel shooter, or one of another character running parallel with Shepherd, where the events are set in stone. An FPS in that universe could be pretty amazing, but I'm not sure that I'd want Bioware to make it.
