Dragon Age Lead Writer Dismisses Idea of Fallout-Like TV Show as “Terrible

David Gaider, a writer and designer known for his work on the Dragon Age video game series, expressed reservations about adapting the Mass Effect franchise into a television show. He believes that without the interactive elements, the story would be fairly generic and struggle to stand out in the oversaturated fantasy genre.

Gaider compared the potential Mass Effect show to popular game franchises like Dragon Age and Baldur’s Gate 3, expressing doubts about the show offering anything new or innovative. He also pointed out the stiff competition from established fantasy series like The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, making it a challenging endeavor.

While Gaider expressed skepticism about a Mass Effect TV adaptation, he mentioned his willingness to write a Dragon Age show if the opportunity arose. He suggested that removing the interactive element from such games would leave behind a standard fantasy narrative.

The fate of a potential Mass Effect show remains uncertain, with no word on a second season for the live-action Fallout adaptation. Given the competitive landscape in the fantasy genre, it is understandable why Gaider and others are cautious about bringing these beloved game franchises to the small screen.

As fans eagerly wait for updates on potential adaptations, the future of bringing these rich and immersive worlds from gaming to television remains an intriguing topic.
