so they really might as well just throw them away altogether rather than keep trying to shoehorn them in, and then do so poorly.


Right, and I'd rather they try, as I'd like something more distinct as opposed to 'Look how much we're like gears of war now,' which seems to be the design philosophy that was embraced with ME. But as the title says its a new era, pretending that Bioware was the same company they were a decade ago would obviously be a mistake. I still find it lamentable though.

Edit - I'd also say balance isn't everything. Diablo 3 is very well balanced, but as the previous games indicate, balance doesn't make it a better game. (though it's important)

iD (historically) also makes excellent multiplayer games that are well balanced... Even if its a shooter though, that doesn't mean that when it comes to all the other elements in a single player game people come to expect, that they wouldn't totally flounder (ala Rage!)

Obviously there is no treack record like there is with iD, but just a comination of all the factors don't give me high hopes.
