I never thought I'd say these words, but @#$% you, Bioware.
Going from Origins to one playable main character? None of the endings of DA are canon, including the Dark Ritual?
DA and Mass Effect are great IPs - but you're @#$%ing them up with this dumbing-down crap. You made a ton of money on the originals, so chop the bean-counters and marketing wonks into bait and get back to making games people love, rather than just squeezing the life out of them.
