The Dragon Age and Mass Effect game franchises published by BioWare (EA) have had a huge effect on me. Thus, I feel it important that the companions get a decent treatment and a fair evaluation. Upon reading a ranking article that I felt didn't do them justice, I wrote a response article and the editor of the page in question (Game Crate) was kind enough to offer me publication. The end result can be found here, in my article titled: The Definitive Ranking of Dragon Age and Mass Effect Companions: A Second Opinion.
