If I made Mass Effect 2:

First and foremost, everything you do, say or otherwise would have weight and subtly alter the world around you, even opening additional quests later because of those actions. Imagine if, when you save Daniel, that when you kill the Batarians, he becomes a eugenics crazed madman that must be stopped. Or even simpler, the second half of Omega, when cleared of the virus, opens for exploration, complete with additional shops, NPCs, and quests. How you complete such quests would effect how each race reacts to one another. When you save the Batarian from the virus, the relations begin to improve, to the point that the worlds begin to seem more intermingled. Even your party members would reflect these choices that you make. There should be a point to be a renegade, or paragon.

I would have liked to found my own colony, with even simple choices like, open an orphanage, or run a casino. It would have been great to see an all human colony for a racist Shepherd, or something more integrated. These choices would unlock additional assignments in the galaxy, such as a paragon character having to fix things or buy stuff, or a renegade having to fight off the hordes of enemies he's angered.

I'd also like a broader range of character to select from, based on what style of play I plan for. I still don't understand why Samara and Jack work together, or even why they are so cool with it. Jack mentions I could run a great pirate business through the Normandy, so why can't I? I'd like to roam around and board ships and rob colonies. Or, stop those from doing just that. Why can't I make friends with enemy merc groups, and fight off legions of Alliance armies? Without basic choices, the game comes off as cheap and hollow, and ultimately worthless.

I'd like to see a better form of trade and economy then what the game offers. It seems strange to see a pure credits for tech exchange. Why can't I salvage junk from abandoned star cruisers and find someone to trade it for minerals or tech? Further, why are my ship upgrades never used anywhere but the final stages? Dammit, I want to use the javelin missiles to rock the shit out of passing ships and low defense colonies. This is supposed to be a space opera, but I don't feel like it is.

Why can I only shag one bitch at a time? Why can't I run about the galaxy fucking everything that moves? If you're going to allow romances, they should be a bit more alive. Maybe I'm going to far here, but maybe a jilted lover could leave my crew and pledge to see my life and ship destroyed, spawning yet another mission. There is so much potential in this game and it's pathetic to see it all wasted. I realize that I'm asking for a bit much, but there should be something more to this then a simple win/win system backed by ineffectual game decisions. I've brought down the blue suns, cured the plague, altered the course of the genophage, assassinated leaders and helped build criminal empires and there's absolutely no recognition of it. Maybe Omega is a lost cause, but can't I clean up the Citadel? Take down mob bosses? Why is the final game choice, help Cerberus, or blow up the ship? Can't I help the alliance instead? Or myself?

The last thing on my mind is why don't we ever see a true human world? The Citadel is mostly a hub and occasionally you'll see the desecrated remains of a colony, but I want to see earth. Or Mars, or anything. Give me something bioware!

I think the game is decent, but theres no way you can only scan three planets and still unlock all the upgrades, you need a lot of element zero, which is rare.

Iridium is the one I have trouble with. I've found it's best to hunt the small pimply planets, they have the best swag.

If I go to a planet and the scanner results don't say "Rich," then I just go to another planet. No point in wasting time on one with moderate or good results. Q, I'm going to try and find it again later, but one planet I came across had six deposits of Element Zero on it, I got about 11-thousand-and-something from it. More than enough to boost Jack's biotics and give myself a few abilities.

Heartless, all of your ideas are great. They'll probably be ignored, but maybe you should post them on BioWare's site?

That's a great another. Another great idea: if you're having difficultly mining, manually manipulate your mouses sensitivity controls. That should increase the amount of stuff you get from planets.

My roommates were addicted to this game for a few straight days. One of them spent most of his time scanning every planet he could find and had a huge amount of Element Zero.

I haven't played it since Sunday. I really don't like how quickly I've progressed through the game, even after doing all the loyalty quests and doing whatever side missions didn't sound boring. I think I'll play through Assassin's Creed II again.

I tend to play this in heavy rotation with Fallout 3. I need another game of that style, if anyone has any tips.

You mean an RPG with a karma systems and five gallons of awesome? Fable II, if it ever came out for PC. The choices you make in the game actually effect things right away. Whole towns can be shitholes or they can actually look nice, and everyone will know about what you've done and will react to you accordingly. Also, your karma effects your appearance heavily.

Try Dragon Age: Origins if your PC can run it. There's no bar or anything that says what your karma is, but there are still tons of choices in that game that test your morality.

Plus, they're coming out with an expansion (or maybe it's out already), and it's on a disk as well a DLC. I love companies that release their expansions on disk.

If it weren't for the expansions coming out on disk, I wouldn't even have Fallout for PC. It took forever on console.

I'm dying for a new Elder Scrolls game. After Fallout, I'm sure Bethesda will implement a karma system into TES.

I'm tired of the far future/ancient primate RPG games. Why not have something more Modern? Like, set in 2012, and center around the theoretical worlds end, where you must face down corrupt police, fanatical cultists and deranged politicians hell bent on restarting WW2. Nothing supernatural or sci-fi, just a lot of in depth story lines, world exploration and divergent paths based on alignment choices. Oh, and I'd like to see a lot of fucking guns.

That sounds similar to I Am Alive, except IAA is going to be a first-person shooter (also known as "shit").

I didn't know Chicago was known for it's earthquakes. Or that the US, possibly the most developed first world nation in the world, would have that much difficulty recovering after a quake. Looks iffy.

Pretty much. But unless game companies actually start listening to their fans, that's probably as close as you'll get.
