"Mass Effect started with RPG-fused shooter mechanics, then quickly transitioned to full-on cover-based shooting that you were more likely to see in games like Gears of War or Uncharted...It worked out well, and the decision to change made the series better."

Wait a second... wasn't that one of the reasons why people didn't like ME2/3 - that it was too much of a cover shooter?

The DA series doesnt need to learn anything from ME series...
just make it like DA 1 with improved graphics and you are done
