The lights are on
Mass Effect was one of the most action-packed space odysseys we've ever experienced, and it has at least two sequels that look to up that ante in nearly every way. Whether you are new to the universe or an experienced explorer, feel free to pull up a chair
This has some slight spoilers for the ME series, and I do not want to cause fights:
Hello, and no I did not just made that up, someone actually wants that Bioware suffers a complete overhaul to the first two games, which are freaking masterpieces regardles of gameplay decisions like: outdated graphics, weapons overheating and the Mako missions (honestly, those are bland but it is mostly the fact that all Mako sections tend to play the same), just so that the controls are the same of ME3. Now while I welcome the more fluid control options for the third game in the trilogy I felt that what impresses me of the first two games is the story, and the characters interactions such as the loyaltie missions.
While it will be a no brainer for Bioware to relaunch the games for the PS4 and XBOX One (WiiU will be welcomed) I feel like the gameplay should remain the same as each game it is own different part of the story. Personally, what Bioware can do is to expand the story so it has 'many different endings' (MAYBE one close to this). Who knows, Bioware could also take the chance to include some of the cut content for the trilogy such as: Emily Wong appearing on ME3, the ability to visit Ashley/Kaidan after completing Arrivalin ME2, or some other removed lines of dialog.
But again,those are my opinions what do you think, should the general gameplay remain the same for the games no matter when they are re-launched, or do you somehow think that almost all the elements should be made the same as ME3?
Keep them the same. I'm in the minority here but I kind of enjoy the combat in ME1. If they change anything make it where you can map more than one power at a time, it would be so much easier/more fun to use other classes than solider.
I found the combat in ME1 to be a little clunky but it was still completely usable. Admittedly I found that ME2 felt pretty "dumbed down" in terms of combat, as well as loot/stuff/gear. ME3 fit into a solid middle ground that I really felt fit into the middle, even though the optional full suits of armor totally sucked.
@Sgt Buzzob While its agreedable that the first two games where kind of combat chunky, each game has their distinctive and as I renember the fact that the upgrades player gave the armor in ME2 dissapeared is a major bummer (better shields, stronger physical attacks, more health, etc.). But yes, in comparison with the full armors of ME2 & 3, 2 armors had better bonuses in my opinion.
I will reserve all judgment on ME3 until I have played the last cutscene.

@TheSniper This is more about gameplay improvements Bioware can make regarding a possible re-launch of the Trilogy for next gen consoles but thanks anyways.
Why, pray tell, is it a "no-brainer" that BioWare re-releases Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 on PS4 and Xbox One?? Seriously, this has to be the most asinine thing I've read all day. No offense, but to ask a developer to re-make some of their games just because they improved them along the way and someone thinks they should make all those changes to the first games is outrageously stupid. Beyond outrageously stupid.
Since The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword had so many great things in it that Ocarina of Time did not, let's just demand Nintendo re-release OoT for WiiU with the improvements! The fantastic gameplay of Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit that just came out is miles ahead of all the NFS games that came before, so let's just pour thousands of man-hours into re-doing what's already been done just to have some great tweaks for entitled gamers.
This is hilariously dumb. The fact that some people were upset with the ending of ME3 so much as to "demand" BioWare to change it is beyond me. They make the games the way they want to, not the way that some of the fans think they should be made. End of story (I'm still pissed that BioWare did in fact change the ending - they shouldn't have changed a thing). BUT, to say that they should re-make the first two games just to improve graphics and minor gameplay tweaks and re-release them on two or three next-gen consoles is RIDICULOUS.
Do they realize how much work that would be? That's not "re-load the code, copy-and-paste from ME3, re-render the game, and you're good" or anything as simple as that. Those are brand new pieces of hardware that require brand new languages and brand new ways of interacting with the software. Why do you think the Xbox One and PS3 are not backwards compatible? Backwards compatibility isn't something you just "unlock," it requires massive re-writes of content to make the new hardware function like the old hardware (no small feat).
When a company re-leases some game like Halo Anniversary or Ocarina of Time for 3DS, etc., we as gamers should be MASSIVELY grateful that the developers took time away from developing *new* games and making *progress* as a foward-thinking business to do a bit of fan service. But instead, we think that they have to cater to our every whim.
So, whoever came up with this uncontrollably asinine notion needs to just stop talking for a while and re-think how they do life. Because this has got to stop.
This is completely unfeasible. I wouldn't be surprised if the person that inspired this idea isn't trolling on BSN's ME forums right now.
