    Funny how BioWare created one of the best games of all-time (yes EmperorMaximusDecimus, of all-time) and followed it up this year with the truly sub-par Dragon Age II.

    Ugh, I have to say Mass Effect 2 is most dumbed-down shallow patronising drivel I've ever played. The stellar reviews didint exactly surprise though - maybe we could 'fix' all the other RPGs by turning them into generic shooters?
