On the DA discussion, yeah I am one of those that not only likes DA:O but also DA:I and <gasp> even liked DA2. smile

I can see some of the arguments about the various weaknesses of the series, and especially DA2 of course, but ultimately I think the reason I embraced those games and enjoyed playing them was precisely because they were my only way to get my perfect combination of factors that make a videogame enjoyable for me: a role-playing game; a fantasy-setting game; a single-player game; a party-based game with full control of your companions; and a RTwP combat game. Given that I no longer can find this specific combination in too many videogames out there, I take whatever I can get and overlook or ignore or learn to live with any and all shortcomings in those games.
