Next gen this needs to be addressed. I mean really? wtf this didn't happen last gen, and if it did you couldn't tell at least. Almost half the games i have played on PS3 or Xbox 360 have and issue with frame rate. It takes away from the game when this happens.
Here are the biggest offenders imo: Mass Effect 1 Dragon Age Origins Dragon Age 2 The Walking Dead The Cave
dude, i hear ya its such a pain when your in the middle of something and it gets choppy. frame rate needs to be priority 1 next gen. Frame rate>gameplay>story>>>>>>>graphics. I rather play a game with solid frame rate and gameplay, then a game with amazing graphics and crap frame rate.....imho
I heard the digital version was better. No its not the disc, well it could be but othr people have set the frame rate is pretty choppy in ME1 a few reviews say it too. If i remember correctly the 360 version was the same.
