I'm guessing he thinks DA2 was top notch too. We can call DA3 a failure now, if Bioware's not open to criticism and learning why they did a horrible job on DA2.
Time for a new lead writer if DA3 has any hope of succeeding.
He still does think DA2 is top notch, he said so over and over before it shipped, even though all the long time actual CRPG fans, pretty much knew DA2 was going to be a disaster 6+ months before ship.
The only folks Gaider and Laidlaw wanted to listen to were the action rpg crowd that encouraged the less tactical combat with wave combat, and those who considered actual character customization that was a hallmark for past Bioware rpgs instead took to calling it "playing dress up" trying to be edgy.
And then when the game failed sales wise in comparison to Origins, they wondered wtf happened. Now he's disenchanted? Ohh poor little pretentious full of himself David Gaider. Boo fucking hoo.
