Honestly DA2 is disappointing no matter what you play it on.

and this says it about right. I'm tired of sequels also, has anyone noticed that lately all that comes out is sequels? Devs make games so straight forward also these days that sometimes I wonder if I would just be better of watching a movie.

Well said, I cry a little inside everytime I hear that a game has been adapted for a larger audiance, because all the games do is become generic, something that will pease the masses and leave the people that actually loved and respected the original game with nothing

As a PC gamer I want a game that pushes my rig and you see the glorious resualts, it's only fair to want that as we spend so much money on them
But even with a decent ports, the game is still worth nothing is all the challenging game play elements have been removed to simplify the game play, ontop of generic storyline

the only thing that is going to change the devs mind, and make them stop ruining the the sequals of games that we all wished they would make, is for the mass's that buy all the crap regardless to relise that it is crap and stop buying it
But then again, it's the Dev's that are using once awesome games and pumping out over hyped sequals sequals aimed at the masses

It's been a while since I've played a game where I only goto bed at 3 in the morning, because the game is so engaging that I can't stop playing, even though I know I have working in the morning
The last games like that were Portal 2 and Starcraft 2, two of the best PC game developers, but Even though they are newish, there's been nothing in between
