I think it's development time that makes the difference myself. Though I can see how the world design stuff makes it easier for MA.

It's more simple for me. Shepard has the edge because he is Shepard. Dragon Age has "The Mysterious Protagonist" going for them. I'll take real backstory over general customization any day.

As I prefer sci-fi over fantasy, I have to agree. I can't get into the Dragon Age series (and I do love fantasy), but I think the Mass Effect series is one of the best this gen, up there with the Uncharteds, Assassin's Creeds, and Dead Spaces.

I'm more of a traditional fantasy guy, but I definitely enjoy both of them.

prob becuase even though ME2 wasnt as good as ME1, it was still great.

DAO on the other hand i liked better than ME1 and ME2 but DA2 was a total pile of shit.

DA II is the best fantasy RPG ever made and Mass Effect 2 is the best Sci-Fi RPG ever made. Period.
