DA:O = 2009
ME2 = 2010

Like his style or not, he was all but the last vestige of old BioWare left. The company is really a shell now, a name only.

I rank them 1, then 2, then New Vegas, then 4, then 3. And I mostly still enjoyed 3. Yes, post 2 is not the same game and barely the same setting - so what? I'd rather have had an Interplay…
