@bojackhorseman: It gets though in a broken way. Like in "exploit this one op spell to win and the 19 other spells you have is pure crap". Bioware games are not rewarding at higher difficulties.
I don't agree with that. I enjoyed playing almost all of their games at the higher difficulty. DA II is the one I can think of where I didn't and that was because the combat was so not tactical that positioning was gone and it felt shallow.
Origins and Inqusiition are both a lot better on a higher difficulty in my opinion. Not that I agree with the entire defense, but I also think Bioware gets too much hate. DA:I is a good game.
