Dragon Age Origins worth playing? - Page 2

post #11 of 30
I'm playing it right now and I have mixed emotions. The story is good, the customization (weapons and such) are good but the quests are lame. Small maps, depending on which quest you have active depends on what you will find in that small part of the map. It got very redundant and annoying but I'm still playing it...

DAO lasted me over 200 hours. And I got it real cheap on steam. Best game purchase of 2010.

DAO was awesome. I'm playing DA2 and it's pale in comparison. The story of DAO was waaay more epic.

Yeah ifs defo worth a look. If you liked the old Forgotten Realms games like Neverwinter Nights and Baldur's Gate etc, you'll more then likely find this great. Its very old school pc rpg ^^

I'd say it's probably worth it at the right price but I'd suggest reading up on character builds, healing and combat tactics before starting. I'm playing the Witcher right, another game that's taken me forever to get into but plan on going back to DAO at some point. I only made it 3 hours into it because the dialog kept going on and on. So maybe have some patience if you don't get into it right away.

if you have played every other RPG out there, yes it is.

I recommend everything earlier from bioware than DAO, and then the drakensang series, the witcher series, Neverwinter nights 2, probably lots more i cant think of at the moment.

You should get the Ultimate Edition its worth it even now at its current price although you can wait a few weeks as I'm sure it will be on sale during the steam summer sale.

The story is cliched one but it doesn't make the story or game bad because of it. Yes there is pausing, I don't know how much because it depends on play style. I paused quite a bit but that was my play style and I wanted to.

Dragon Age Origins is an excellent rpg, you won't regret it. DA2 in comparison is a massive disappointment.

I hate Dragon Age, and I'm a lifelong fan of old-school D&D RPGs from Black Isle and Bioware. DA just doesn't have that same old magic of Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment. Felt like chore to play, and the graphics are ugly as sin. Just my opinion, of course. If you want a unique, beautiful, deep, and intriguing RPG, get The Witcher 2.
