There's more than just awkward sex in Dragon Age 2. There's also, you know, a plot. Which ends in one of two forking paths. Even if you don't have thirty hours plus to spend earning the ending yourself, you could still pick only one of these videos to watch. That's sort of a game! Give yourself some innuendo-laden…
