    Protheans and Reapers

    I like the idea of a prequel, but a SW:KOTOR style prequel. Set it in the era of the previous Reaper invasion, have Protheans, have all new alien races! That way you can work in a different style of weapons and powers without messing up your established canon. I was skeptical about KOTOR (how can you have a Star Wars game set so far in the past, without your existing good/evil set up?) but Bioware pulled it off. I think they could do it with this provided they were given license to do so by EA. I agree that the story would perhaps be ultimately less rewarding, as you have to end up with the destruction of the Protheans, but there's enough scope there for choosing HOW you get there given the relative sparsity of information in the current trilogy.

    If they make a prequel it shouldn't be about the first contact wars, they have been documented in the original mass effect trilogy and the novels so there wouldn't be a lot of choices as the outcome has been decided. The first book also mentioned that only a couple of hundred persons died on both sides. After the Turians took over a planet populated by humans both sides prepared for full out war but then the Council stepped in to keep things under control. Playing as the protheans or any other race in the previous cycle does mean that we allready know how it is going to end, playing as any other race from that cycle also includes being enslaved too, yay about that! So if you ask me they really should make a sequel, but how they are going to include everything we have done so far could be difficult. Is it smart of them to keep asking these questions in twitter btw? They got a nice big shitstorm about the ending (though I didn't really have problems with it) because they made promises a lot of people felt they didn't keep. They should know that there is no way they are going to include all the suggestions they get on twitter so I can see this blowing up in their face.
