That would definitely be interesting. We always had the perspective of the invaded, so being the invader should be something fresh

Be interesting to see the differences in this survey and the one put out before Andromeda was announced

They've stated more or less that, to them, ME is very much about playing a human and experiencing the universe from that perspective.

Guess you'll just have to deal with it. The humans will always win in the end (funnily enough, ME was my example).

Makes us feel like the villain. The aliens are the aboriginals and we're playing as the white man.

But if the Ark contained only humans, does that human only human squad mates?

Either way I'm hyped as fuck and that armor is lit.

We've already seen a Krogan squadmate.

Expected. Not really much else I was thinking was going to happen with all the project arkcon/Ark theories and whatnot. Not really much else that could happen unless Andromeda skipped the arrival to the new galaxy and placed us in a ME1 type situation again.

Since the trip is one way, they are more like refugees than colonists.

I think it would be a mistake to go that direction.

Yeah the last leaked survey already stated that the player is colonzing in the Andromeda galaxy, making a new home. So it's not exactly news, unless more information pops up

Oh good. I can't remember if the ark was all of the citadel races on one ship or just humans. Simply because the game descriptions keep saying to fit for humanity instead of the galaxy.

This is a big part of why the ME franchise doesn't grab me as much as, say, Dragon Age. I don't like to be stuck playing a human in a universe with other more intriguing species/races/aliens.

I think it's outstanding and fertile ground. You could play colonialism straight as humanity's hero (justified as 'we have no other choice'), or you could play it as 'humanity is the bad guy', with all the shades of grey in between. Either way, the focus will be on exploring alien planets and meeting new races, and all of that sounds like gravy to me.
