The game may have come out eleven years ago, but many PC gamers still consider Baldur's Gate II: Shadow of Amn to be BioWare's finest work.

Assuming that to be the case, how does the soon-to-be-released Dragon Age 2 stack up against the company's best game ever?  Apparently, quite well.

It compares so well, actually that the game's lead designer, Mike Laidlaw, finds that DA2 has some of his favorite writing of any BioWare game to date.

"[Baldur's Gate 2] had characters that were incredibly memorable," Laidlaw tells News10's Game Guys.  "Characters like Edwin or Minsc with his crazed crusade against all things evil.  And I think that what we deliver with Dragon Age 2 a deeper tactical experience."

In fact, Laidaw says that the game actually does a better job at making the party work together.  Working together is a big part of the game and is essential for defeating the game's tougher foes.

"Our characters, our story we're telling I think is incredibly memorable," concluded Laidlaw.
