Dragon Age Origins worth playing? - Page 3

The Witcher 2 is hardly a descendant of the old-school DnD-style RPGs. Still a great game, though.

How was Dragon Age a chore to play? It played just like how the old games did. Dragon Age 2... different story...

There is a great disconnect in your post.

Never even implied that The Witcher 2 is a descendant of D&D RPGs. The disconnect must be on your end.

I'm not going to give the game a full review - there are a LOT of elements that I found boring and tiresome. As I said, just stating my opinion for the good man.

I started playing the game and I am not usually picky with graphics but for a game that came out in 2009 it looks like something from 2002-04 this is my only issue so far:S

No, DAO is pathetic. Unless you never, ever played any other rpg games and never read any fantasy books, you might find it good. Otherwise, it's a dumb game full of cliches that tries incredibly hard to be mature, but comes off as a spoiled 12 year old brat that tries too hard to act like an adult.

I actually agree with this post, DAO still a good game but pales in terms of other RPGs.

I liked both DoA and DA2. It is a personal preference whether you like DA2 or not. And I like it - I played three times through. Story is not strong as DoA, but it is not as bad as some folks make it seem like and I liked the game play - again just my preference. So, check out the demo, the videos, etc. and make a determination for yourself.

Yes, yes, and yes, it was hands down the best RPG I have played. Ever.

DAO ultimate edition! Man you can't go wrong. I logged over 500 hours before DA2... Which I never played because after seeing my brother play it, I just sighed.
post #30 of 30
i agree... better than doa2 and really good.

I warn you that any level above easy is super duper hard! the difficulty is inconsistent as some enemies are easy as pie to kill, but others, while being the same enemy... just a room away can take forever and be extremely hard to defeat.

Final boss took me forever to kill... *** spoiler alert

i didn't know you could use the catapults
