So duders I was just on Bioware's store (looking for sweet art i'm sort of obsessed right now lol) and they have a brand tab that you can search merchandise by, and I thought it was sort of empty looking with only Mass Effect and Dragon Age being on the drop down. Personally I really love these two franchises warts and all (and yes DAII was one of the most disappointing games of the generation) but eventually especially because Bioware seems like such a large company they will branch out and create a new franchise (I say franchise because that's just business these days) and I wanted to know what setting you want/ story you want to explore.
I know a lot of you will be all "Hey asshole what about Baldur's Gate and Jade Empire they should be made current gen grumble grumble grumble those are Bioware's other major franchises grumble grumble" but I'm sorry I see the update of those franchises as being unlikely and a new one the most likely option. I know that Bioware is working on DAIII (please god be good) and an untitled Mass Effect game (prequel? I think likely) but I'm pretty sure these duders have worked on three games at once before (DA2, ME3 and SW:TOR I think) so what else could they be cooking up? I'd guess it would be an RPG (or a shooter/other genre mixed with RPG elements as Bioware has become "RPG EA division") but I'm not even sure what I would want to see so I'm looking to others.
They have typical fantasy and space opera covered, other themes that I've seen recently or otherwise in RPG's include cyberpunk (CD Project Red's new game), espionage (Alpha Protocol), dystopia/apocalyptic (Fallout) among others that I'm probably forgetting right now. Out of these few options as far as world building (which is important as hell) the dystopia/cyberpunk option seems the best route. Although I just started up Alpha Protocol and the story seems promising as well.
Can you guys think of some better settings/themes you would like these guys to tackle? Also I apologize if this topic has been covered before Bioware seems very popular in these forums which is one of the reasons I wanted to ask you guys. Anyway I dunno about you guys I know lately Bioware has had some questionable stuff in their games but they are still IMO still making excellent RPG's/hybrids. So what do you wanna see from them next as far as another original setting?
