I would rather have an original series in the ME universe than a retelling of Shepard's story. Most of the people who would watch would have played the trilogy through anyway.


That is like saying no one watching Game of Thrones read the books. If ME can look enticing it can draw non gamers. Going with proven, popular characters only helps the ratings, despite the bumps in the ME story.


Game of Thrones isn't a choose-your-own-adventure. Not a great analogy.

A series would definitely capture the game better than a movie. And if it's HBO, we'd get lots of sex scenes too. Second thought, forgot about making a tv series. Someone should just make ME porn.

i could see a cop show based on c-sec working.


They are coming out with something similar starring Karl Urban, Almost Human. Looks like it might be entertaining.

They should do a TV series set in the Mass Effect universe but with new characters and a new plot. A TV show or a film based on Shepard's story would be pointless (it's a story that's already been told and is personal to each individual player) and making either a male Shepard or female Shepard, or Liara as a LI or someone else, would just alienate all the people that chose something different. It would be terrible. A TV series set in the same universe would be great.

Biggest issue with a Mass Effect TV series is budget lol.

it would have to be at least a budget the level of star trek ds9-enterprise.

I was hoping for a budget closer to the original Doctor Who.

Agree, but I'd rather not see the games' plot used. I'd rather they go into stories we've never seen before.

I'd like to see more of the Mass Effect lore than what Shepard saw

Btw, EA and Bio check gamefaqs all the time so they will definitely read this.

Do they really check this place out?
