The Mass Effect franchise has become one of the most popular, talked-about RPG series of all time. Mass Effect 1 and 2 are almost universally beloved, and the third entry was still great despite a disappointing ending. Thanks to its mix of fun, tactical gameplay, memorable characters, and rich storyline, the trilogy has earned its place among gaming's most popular sci-fi series. Because of this, the next Mass Effect game is one of the most anticipated fourth entries in video game history. Due to the attachment built by players to the decision-laden story, expectations for Mass Effect 4 are almost unattainably high. A distinct lack of information from Bioware and EA hasn't helped to temper the Mass Effect 4 hype machine outside of confirmation it's coming in some form... some time - so fans worldwide have been chipping in with what they want or expect from the game. Despite a lack of substantial press releases, we do know a few details about Mass Effect 4. Most importantly, it will not be a direct sequel to Mass Effect 3. Bioware have confirmed that the first three games' story is finished, and ME 4 won't act as a continuation of the Reaper story. However, the exact setting and time of the game hasn't been announced, including whether or not it will be a prequel of some variety. This list takes a look at some of the craziest fan demands and expectations of Mass Effect 4, and why (sadly) absolutely none of them will happen.
