Imagine, if you will, a different version of the Mass Effect series. One where everything pretty much happens the same way, all the features are still the same and all the options you had at your disposal were still available. Except, instead of a game based around the choices you make, this is a game based around the choices you and your sibling make.

A game where one player may have chose not to shove that smart mouthed merc out the window, but as he or she turned their back, the other kicked the poor merc right through the glass. When Kai Leng was about to sneak up on you, your partner reacts first and gets the killing blow. A game where some crew members are closer to and fight better with one Shepard while others align themselves with the sibling based on how the players acted and treated them. A game where instead of one squad of three people taking on ridiculous tasks during combat, you now have a partner and his or her own squad to back you up. Maybe by the end of the series, you and your partner differ on which color you want to paint the galaxy and you have to do the unthinkable to make sure him or her doesn't get their way.

I want to play that game. Just to fuck with my friends and steal their waifus.

I favorite this not because of the picture, but because of the idea. (*_*)

So far as an actual in game co-op for story mode goes, rather than introducing a second Shepard and doubling the numb of NPC squaddies, I'd rather have seen a mode where players 2&3 just take direct control of which ever squaddies go on each mission.

Still, the idea that the great and legendary Sheppard wasn't just a singular badass, but a pair of badass siblings is something that I can find narratively intriguing.

Your idea would definitely be much easier to implement into a game.

I like this idea. Two Shepard siblings, gone through the same story. In mine, I'd have been the one who fully supported Cerberus. The one who, during one Cerberus mission, accidentally caused the team to slip up and fail at their mission. The one who, in the ending, pointed the gun at his sibling and stood at the side of the Illusive Man, then died at the hands of his own brother/sister.

Certain outcomes that cause the two players to fight each other would be pretty interesting.

It would be the best boss battle of all time. Take the ending where one turns on the other. And not just in ME3, I suppose. Have one decide near the end of ME2 that the Reapers are humanity's salvation, and somehow cause the other Shepard and his crew to be unable to defeat the Collectors, resulting in game over. I'd love to see all of the possibilities in such a story. It would be simply amazing.
