Will the next one complete the transition, and largely leave its RPG trappings behind? Don’t color me shocked if it happens.

Well that would certainly be one way to make me stop paying attention to the series entirely, but I suppose I already didn't buy ME3, so go nuts! Who cares!

Fuck Bioware.

Well, someone seems to have had piss in their cornflakes this morning. Funny how as the games get better and better to actually play, they generate more and more irrational hatred from people who claimed to be 'fans' of the franchise.

That's a matter of opinion. Personally I found ME2 much more fun to play than 3.

As someone who enjoys RPGs and is getting really bored by shooters, I'd still rather play Mass Effect 1, rough edges and all.

I loved DA2. Yeah, the lack of different environments wasn't great but I didn't feel like the mechanics were significantly watered-down from the original. I had a lot of fun with the gameplay and I thought Bioware crafted some great characters and did some really interesting things with narrative that you don't see in many other games. Kirkwall may be the only place you go in that game, but by the end of it, it's not the same city.

I don't recall Kirkwall changing in any significant way at all.

DA2 was not well received well, so actually perhaps the lowered expectations will be good for the game. I'd rather see Dragon Age to just shed all its RPG tropes and make a full transition into action adventure, focusing on combat solely with a tighter story and segments in which choices give flavor outcomes to the proceedings.

Gross.

Pfffffft. I fully expect this game to be dogshit.

Without the same talent, I doubt it will be up to their old output. On the other hand, we need more devs willing to dust off the old timey RPG mold.

My instinct is to dive straight into the story mode, but I should probably hit the lesson mode first to at least get some kind of understanding of the mechanics.

"Steak" better be one of the words you can use.
