I guess I'll put my controversial opinion out there: Dragon Age Inquisition is the worst game in the series. Yeah, Dragon Age 2 got a lot of flack, but at it's core, it had a great foundation that built off the first game. It just suffered from the terrible design decision to set the entire game in the same little city and the same mountain pave and the same single cave they go to again and again.

Inquisition? It's just a glorified MMO with Dragon Age elements scattered around it, with the most phoned-in storyline that had almost no punch to it at all. It started strong with the whole time travelling to the future thing, but man, when you realise EVERY SINGLE plot point in the game came down to "the Venetari are here, again!" you realise how nothing matters and they are just going to make you fight those enemies again and again at every main mission. Apparently they were behind everything, even after you are done with their leader in the first third of the game.

Origins is a masterpiece, and it's just sad to see the series sink lower and lower with ever release away from that. I miss weapons and fighting having actual weight behind them - waiting for the right second as the Darkspawn raises his sword to use shield bash and send him flying to the ground. Inquisitions combat feels like you are waving a fan made of feathers over their face until the bar their health bar ticks down enough for them to fall over dead.

If I wanted to read something complicated, I'd read a real book (i.e. not fantasy). I'm a Literature major. I have plenty of other things to choose from.

Ding ding ding, we've found the snob!

I have trouble recommending Dragon Age Inquisition to anybody, and I finished it with around 48 hours on the clock. It's hands down the worst of the series.

Companies we are stupid.

Let's be realistic, Pinwheel is barely a boss. Dark Souls 2 has a similar glaringly easy boss that is little more than a strong mob with a lifebar too. So I'm not going to count him.

It's gotta be Ceaseless Discharge. It's hands down easier than anything else.

@flstyle: I am cringing so much at your posts. You effectively came in here just to say "Why would I play these bad games when I have good games?" which serves no one.

It's like people talking about Star Craft and you come in and say "why would I play an RTS game where you can only build a few buildings when I could get Sim City and build hundreds of buildings with more depth!"

Souls games are not hack and slash games. That's why people don't just play Bayonetta.

I just tried this on the PC version and did not have any of these issues. I was using an xbox 360 controller, for reference.

It's pretty clear the answer is Dark Souls 1. It's not only the best in the series, but it also starts you off with some clunkier UI elements that will be really hard to go back to if you started with Dark Souls 2.

I love it as long as we never get another episode of strictly Dan and Danny. I love those guys but they need a third person to counteract their own experiences which most of us had already heard by the end of episode 2. The reason why I love it is that we get to hear an often very serious side of everyone involved that, especially with someone like Jeff, we aren't used to hearing. Don't get me wrong, Jeff has never been one to stray from telling a personal anecdote or two, but to hear him actually tell it not to set up a punchline but to discuss his psychological reaction to it made me appreciate him more. Same goes for the Dans and probably any other crew member that will appear on that show.

This sums me up pretty much. I love the episodes that have a guest. The ones with only Dan and Danny .... eh, they have good moments. The problem is that when left alone to themselves, they tend to gravitate towards a cringe inducing "nice guy" attitude that just makes my skin crawl. Especially when the questions are about dating.
