In all the talk of graphical downgrades no one seems much preoccupied with 'why?'. Why build something and then proceed to tear it down, piece by piece, in the hope that ever more diminished expectations about the final product won't be severe enough to...
As the sequel of the epically awesome Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age II hardly needs an introduction.

Make a shortcut to your "da2.exe" file (typically located in the C:Program Files (x86)Dragon Age 2bin_ship folder) on your desktop, Start Menu, or wherever.
