The same applies to Star Wars. Again, the execution may be questionable, but the open beginning of A New Hope meant that it desperately needed a prequel of some kind. Yeah, we know how most of it is going to turn out, but it's still a fun ride, and a great way to expand upon a universe.
technically the new starwars movies are not a prequel due the first starwars movie to come out was titled "4". the 6 movies were done together, 1-3 were released later for a technology issue.
but still its funny, i was going to use star wars as an example of why prequels suck. and why all prequels suck, you know how it ends, you know what kind of things wont happen, you know who lives and dies, there are less surprises, and everything is directed to a point you already know, what makes the making of the product more lazy. as i said watching a prequel is like watching a movie you have read all spoilers about
And if there was ever a universe that needed expansion, it was Mass Effect. Mass Effect
yes it should be expanded: new races, new events, new technology, nothing of which you will get in a prequel, even more, you will get less of everything, less tech, less races, no new events. playing that game i would be all like "these unwary idiots doing stupid shit, they dont know the reapers are coming"
is a groundbreaking achievement for interactive storytelling, so it only makes sense that the prequels be handled in the form of a game. That's why I want a prequel.
