If there is a Mass Effect trilogy remaster + all DLC for PS4/X1, would you get it?

I was talking about this with a friend of mine and basically he brought up the point that anyone who could be interested in the first Mass Effect games has played them by now. There has been multiple releases for each game and they're also dirt cheap nowadays.

If there was such a thing for PS4 I would pick it up in a heart beat simply because of the small graphics upgrade, 1080p, the convenience of having them all in the same package, and all the DLC I never got to play. But because of the reason I mentioned, I think it's unlikely to happen.

Would you pick it up?

Meh. The first game was the best of the trilogy but ultimately flawed. The second was linear and fairly boring. Never played the third but obviously all your decisions up to that point ended up not mattering at all. Honestly not sure what's worse; dozens of planets that look randomly generated and have pretty much nothing on them, or fewer planets that are all essentially corridor-based third person shooter levels.

Yes, everyone hates the ME3 ending, but the series needs to be shat on more for other aspects. Way too many western AAA games got a free pass last gen when they lagged in certain elements.

On console? No. PC? Depends entirely on what constitutes as a "remaster".

All three games bundled together with DLC and repackaged at console marketed "1080p 60fps!!!" is meaningless to me. I played all three just like that with SGSSAA and other graphical tweaks/enhancements. So if I wanted to experience the "definitive version" or "remaster" again I'd just play the copies I already have, with the DLC I already own.

That being said, if the trilogy were re-released some some obvious graphical or game system or content enhancements I'd certainly be interested in dipping again. I don't really see that happening though, and suspect the focus is on Mass Effect 4.

I can't see a remaster being worthwhile graphically unless they have higher quality assets that they just didn't bother using in the PC versions of the games. The only real difference between the PC and console versions is the resolution, so it would take a whole lot of time and effort to actually make the games look better beyond a 1080p60 boost. On top of that everyone that wanted to play the games did so since they were all on both platforms. It just doesn't make sense to me.

Yeah. I would love to play the first two with upgraded graphics and playability. The first one because it could really use the upgrade and the second one just because it's awesome and would love a good reason to play it again.

Played the first two on PC ages ago, and then replayed 2 on ps3 not too long ago but I haven't gotten around to playing 3, so it would be pretty tempting.

Yeah, pretty much this.

Yes... Yes I would.

Unlike others, I welcome better/definitive versions of last gen games. I want my PS4 to basically be a "best of gaming" console. :)

I've already bought the remasters of TR and TLOU, and will be getting Metro, GTA V, and likely Sleeping Dogs.

Bring 'em on!
