I need Valve to make a Bioware-style RPG, where you recruit the different members of TF2 to be on your team.

Only if you can choose which class to play as. And your mission control is the Announcer.

Mass Effect dialogue wheel options, Mmmmmph, Mmmmmph?, and Mmmmmph!

Sure, it'd be like playing Bloodlines as a Malk. Who cares?

YES!

AND since this is valve, we can choose a a more inclusive palette beyond brown and grey.


Oh, and since this is TF2, EVERY interrupt is a renegade one.

Diablo III's single player needs to be actual single player and shouldn't require an online connection.

They haven't gotten my money for exactly that reason. I'd rather pre-pay and wait for Torchlight II.

I'm glad somebody feels that way. I know entirely too many people that are "don't care, gimme, gimme". :(

I was, and still am, in that camp. I've got Torchlight II pre-ordered, and am very much looking forward to some steampunky, moddable, off-line monster-whackin'.
