At some point they're going to release a sequel for all those that have been clamoring for one... right? I mean, I'm not one of them, but imagine getting hopeful with every re release of this game and then nothing.

The B scenario is my only real complaint with this game. The A and B scenarios are mutually exclusive - I would much rather have seen the game delayed in service of an entirely separate scenario that intertwines with the first one better, instead of four different slightly different scenarios that all happened in some form because of events in later games, but not exactly as shown because they didn't have the budget or time or whatever to do Claire's story correctly.

...but also, I had a lot of fun playing through the same content a second time, which speaks to how well made the product we got is.

Pathfinder, because I really like that grapple hook.

Dragonball, like a lot of anime, looks really cool with hand drawn animation and really lame any other way.

@justin258: How long until Bioware is making sequels to Obsidian games?

I kid.

At the company's present state, I kinda hope they don't? They haven't put out a legitimately great game since Mass Effect 2 - everything else has been "good, but with a caveat" or just plain bad. Meanwhile, Obsidian seems to have hit a stride they've never had.

Also, yes, I do know the joke.

BioWare's been going through a rough patch, and it seems like the company might be in some trouble. Some major titles from big franchises didn't quite perform the way they were supposed to (or really, perform at all). Enter Anthem. Not only is BioWare's upcoming shared-world shooter totally different from anything the developer has made before, but BioWare has everything riding on it. If Anthem delivers and we genuinely hope it does it could breathe new life into the studio. If it fails? Well, let's just say, the results won't be pretty.

It is worth noting that Bioware got their start making a sci-fi mech game. I mean, yeah, it is still very different from Anthem, but not quite as much of a leap from RPG's as you might think. They haven't made an always-online, loot-focused multiplayer coop MMO-lite thing, though. Also I doubt that anybody who worked on Shattered Steel still works for Bioware.

Metro sounds like the most interesting to me, but everything I've heard about the game so far has been overwhelmingly lukewarm. Far Cry is more Far Cry and Crackdown looks like it already belongs in a bargain bin.

I'll meet you halfway, Hollow Knight - if your new map system is not a steaming pile of horseshit, I will give this series another chance.

The map system isn't the only thing I disliked about Hollow Knight - mostly, I think it's boring - but it is a pretty big complaint.

@nnickers: I'm most of the way through the third book right now.

On the topic of female characters, it should be noted that there are way more of those throughout the second and third novels. And they're all pretty good characters.

I have been reading The Expanse series rather obsessively and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who likes space opera ish stuff.

I feel like CDPR, Larian Studios, Obsidian, and perhaps InXile are filling the Bioware void exceptionally well, perhaps making stuff that's better than anything Bioware themselves ever put out.
