    New, original characters. I understand how much HMS loves G1, but there are literally no characters in these games who aren't homages or straight up based off a pre-existing character. It's not like G1 didn't introduce masses of unexplained characters for no reason.

    I wish one new series would be totally original with its cast, but I know that will never happen because everything must be G1

    It's not like there isn't a good precedence bulkhead, lugnut, and lockdown are great examples of what can happen when they explore new characters.

    I would love for the next game to focus on you own created character.

    I don't play the de games. If they allow you to visually create a unique character then have a story that revolves around this new character, then yes.

    I wouldn't want the story to revolve around the player's character, the game would just feel like a Mary Sue style thing.

    Yeah because Mass Effect and Skyrim make you feel like a Mary Sue...

    I don't see why they don't do this. How would it hurt? I know they want fan favorites and all, but who doesn't like new characters. I thought Zeta was awesome, and I was a little pissed that he saw so little time. I also wish they would incorporate Japanese Transformers too, there are a lot of characters people like and would like to see worked into the story moving forward.

    What I want to see though is the return of co-op campaign and multiplayers to choose from per stage. I don't care if we see cloned abilities, just give us more!

    The story mode was fantastic in Fall, so I don't want a return of co-op.

    The thing is Shepard is established as being the main character from the start of ME. It'd be really awkward if the series went from characters like Grimlock and Jazz doing stuff to one guy getting everything done.

    Some non-G1 characters would be nice. Guys like Scattershot and Demolisher are in the game, why not use them in the story?

    I honestly am kinda sick of Optimus. If done just right, a TF series can be just as good without Optimus. Although it might not feel like Transformers.
    Well, I'm not exactly sick of Optimus or Megatron, but they're in every series now. Just sayin'.

    Agree that we need more original characters. We haven't had any new characters since Unicron Trilogy except Airachnid, who was just an homage to Blackarachnia. (Did I spell that right? :p )
