I liked both 1 and 2 for different reasons. The combat was obviously more fun in 2, but the story in 1 is by far the better story, and the characters and feeling of impending doom is just superior. That's not to say the story in 2 is bad, I really liked the story in 2, but it's insanely linear and the world was very...tunneled. 1 is the superior game, but I didn't hate 2. That being said, if for 3 they combined the combat of 2 with the story/character development of 1, I would never buy another game again.
ETA: On subject of the video, it looks amazing for alpha stage. I also like the main character having a voice. I used to not mind it, but after seeing the difference between a voice and no voice in DA 1 and 2, I preferred him having a voice.
