We're talking hud and menu mostly. Mass Effect 1 was all blue, some green, and Mass Effect 2 is all orange.  
 
So. Final chapter. Does Mass Effect 3 stay orange? Go blue? What would you like to see / what are you speculating?

Purple!

I'm hoping it goes back to blue.

This I'd say.

This. I preferred the blue. It's more space-y than orange or purple.

Ginger...
 
but no, it'll be purple since that's the other combination of colors they didn't use yet. 1 was Blue and Green (turquoise/cyan), 2 was Green and Red (orange/yellow), 3 will be Blue and Red (indigo/lavender).

The correct answer is, who gives a fuck. That's my final answer..who gives a fuck.

Neon white.

#15 Posted by SliPaladin (2 posts) -

I'm hoping for Aqua blue or the Tron blue kind, if not it's probably going to be red.

Fluorescent Beige

It'll depend on your character's morality alignment.  Red/blue.

Why don't they just let you pick the colour like Fallout 3 did with the pip-boy.

I'd like to see blue again, but I have a feeling it'll either be green, red, or purple.

I didn't even remember the hud had any colors or any different colors. I mean who cares. If I had to pick a color, maybe blue, or orange, I don't care.

Yeah, as long as its rendered as nicely as something like Crysis than what does it matter? :P Those menus should pop off the screen in eye-searing HD, no matter what color they are!

You could say the same thing for a lot of your threads too...
#26 Posted by kishan6 (1914 posts) -

green and purple 
neon white would be sick too though

#27 Edited by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -

I got these from swapping around the color channels in a ME2 screen. One is RGB>GBR the other is RGB>BRG with the colors rotated 180 degrees.
 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This one is a 50-50 blend of the two.
 
 


 
 
 
 
 
 
I like either the darker purple or the blend. The light one is too magenta and almost pinkish.
#28 Posted by BraveToaster (12588 posts) -

For me, any color will do. As long as the game is good.

#29 Posted by FlipperDesert (2105 posts) -

Mauve.

#30 Edited by guiseppe (2842 posts) -

Black and red, the colors of death and blood (or maybe death and the color of some ancient machines).

Touché.

#34 Posted by AlwaysAngry (2924 posts) -

Who cares? It's going to suck anyway, just like the last games... well, game. I can't really speak for ME2 because ME was such a pile of dicks that I could only give it about 5-6 hours before giving up. That started my hate for RPGs...

That might still happen. However Fallout 3 still had a default color (which tinted everything else in the game BTW and was not changeable in the world), mold green.
#39 Posted by Raakill (870 posts) -
@MrKlorox:  Yeah I know that green tint all to well. Luckily there's mod to remove it. Thank you fellout.
#40 Posted by AuthenticM (3791 posts) -

Purple or red.

#41 Posted by BulletStorm (488 posts) -

Most popular answers are red and purple; I have a feeling about purple too - choosing hud colors would be nice too - everyone could be happy.

#42 Posted by Redbullet685 (6068 posts) -

Neon Pink

#43 Posted by InfamousBIG (3219 posts) -
@AlwaysAngry: You gave up on the game before it gets good.  ME1 certainly has its problems, though.  I personally ended up loving the game. 
You should seriously try ME2 though.  I swear, on my life, it improves on the first in every conceivable way.  It's a fucking badassed game.

The menus will all be themed around Jeff Bridges.

Obviously a lot of people. Don't post if you don't care. 
I'm all for purple.

Black chrome would be cool! However as quoted above Red/blue showing morality would also be quite cool, showing the character's moral progress visually as part of the HUD/Menu instead of a bar in the character menu showing paragon/renegade.

A more yellowish tone would be nice. Would remind me of Sunshine.
