Mass Effect 3 Learning From ME2 and DA2 Mistakes

There's a preview of Mass Effect 3 on Wired.com that includes comments about the RPG sequel made by Jesse Houston during E3, who describes some recent mistakes from which they are learning this time around. He speaks of returning some of the customization options from the first Mass Effect that were cut from Mass Effect 2, but making them more intuitive, as well of better balancing the game's shooter and RPG elements. He also says they are looking at some of the shortcomings of Dragon Age II when it comes to storytelling. "We learned a lot about the way story flow should work [from Dragon Age 2]," Houston said. "I don’t want to go into too many details, but ultimately, we’ve listened to the fans in a big way: We’re taking it very, very seriously and we’re committed to making sure we don’t repeat mistakes." Thanks nin.

ME3 has so many possibilities, though at this point I'm going to wait until I see some reviews before purchasing this time around.

I blindly bought ME2 and DA2 on the assumption that bioware knew what they were doing. Shame on me.
Yeah. They were both terrible sequels.

Both dumbed down perfectly good games. Sure, there should have been a little better inventory management in ME1, but removing all itemization entirely was just ridiculous.

Keeping the entire story of DA2 within the confines of one city, and reusing every map 1 billion times pissed off nearly every player of the game. I still liked it better than ME2, though, which was pretty and well-written, but a terrible RPG.
