I love Mass Effect. When the original was first unveiled way back in 2005, it was one the game that had me most excited about the (then) next-generation of gaming. Having been a fan of BioWare previously, and in particular their genre-defining Knights of the Old Republic, I couldn’t wait to see what they could do with their own Star Wars. Three games later, I wasn’t disappointed. While there are some that disliked (and still dislike) the trilogy’s ending, for me, the Mass Effect series is the pinnacle of gaming in its short span thus far. I prefer to think of them as slices of one whole, perfect package, and now I want more. But I don’t want more of the same – I want something radical, fresh and new from this universe. And what I definitely don’t want, is a prequel.
