We say Dragon Age II was great, but it wasn't the elite role-playing experience we always expect from BioWare.
But you know, the developers have often said they've listened carefully to fan feedback (or perhaps it's more accurate to call it "backlash"), and the new Legacy DLC is an example of that. In speaking to the BioWare community , lead designer Mike Laidlaw said the developers are convinced "there's a game out there that's better than both Origins and DAII." And he's pretty sure the team can find it.
And in regards to Legacy, Laidlaw says that proves BioWare has been listening:
"Legacy, I think, goes a long way towards demonstrating that we are listening, that we are aware of the weaknesses of DAII, and that we will continue to address them."
He went on to say that "reasonable, passionate feedback is the best possible thing to provide" and that the design team has found such feedback "incredibly useful." Now, Legacy add-on content is all well and good, but we have to assume that we'll see the changes we want to see in Dragon Age III . It's not complicated, really. From an RPG fan's standpoint, we just want…well, an RPG. Not role-playing Lite.
