Anti-controller rhetoric is a bit strong, methinks.

I remember using joysticks back in the TI-994a and C-64 days.

Part of being a PC Gamer is liking the customization of your rig and playing…

Jams are a rarity for me. Really doesn't play a critical roll in combat for me. I'm playing on normal.

Outside of weapons (arguably) and surgeon, only field medic and animal whisperer have a reason to be possessed by more than one ranger.

This. I appreciate D:OS, but I was never an Ultima fan, and Divinity's art, characters, and humor scream Ultima to me. I like the combat and the 'attempt' at intra-party banter. Everything else…

It does have many autopause options. I had a lot set. They might have been easily conflicting with my pausing manually, but that is still an issue.

Character creation is quite awesome. Everything I was looking for. One of the best character creation systems to come out of all the Kickstarter games I've backed.

Yeah, whether it is Xbox Live or PSN Plus, you need a paid membership for multiplayer games on the two big consoles.

There is actually a strong "liked DA2" core of BioWare fans, and even a "not quite small" group who liked DA2 more than DA:O.

"BioWare fans" are not really monolithic. You can't paint with a…

I hope the game is good, I really do.

But this is not a pre-order for me, and I certainly won't be getting any Collector's Edition.

Gaider's comment can be technically more true than false

he can be a grade-A sarcastic ASS at the same time.

I have put a little time into it. I am not, personally, a fan of playing unfinished games. Too many betas of MMO's beat any enjoyment out of me. Dead State and Wasteland 2 are games I am wanting…

1988 had Wasteland, Bard's Tale 3, Batteltech, Ultima V and Pool of Radiance, to name the cream of the crop. At least as good (I'd say better) than 1998, with Baldur's Gate, Diablo and Fallout 2.

2013 was bad. I didn't play most of those, and some that I did I'm hard pressed to consider an RPG (like BioShock.)

Ideology that trumps reality.
