That's the truth. It's the same with ME2.

ME2 and DA2 are both games that are VERY different from their predecessors, but not bad games. Just different.

Accu,

ME2 was awesome... DA2 not so much. ME2 was far better than the first... it just needed a bit more "rp" in the game for me to consider it a "rpg"

Play NWN2. It's a great RPG but it's different from others, like as in more "hardcore" I guess you could say.

I'm going to say NWN2.

I have TW2 and would recommend it to no one.
I never bought DA2, but I didn't like the demo and it is very different from DAO.
FO:NV is great, but at this point I'd just wait for all the DLC to come [at least 1 more] and then give that a run.

Just to throw another choice in there, give consideration to the Oblivion total conversion mod Nehrim: At Fate's Edge

The one I would play first would be New Vegas because of all the great mods, the one not to ever play is DA2... seriously just throw it out your window or use it to set your drink on it's that bad

NWN2 or DA2 maybe.

I'm one of the few people I know that actually liked DA2. Also, I don't understand how anyone can say ME2 was worse than ME1. That just boggles my mind.

imho,
  • Dage2 - Terrible, get ready for the same 7 maps the entire game.
  • Two Worlds - Never played it.
  • NWN2 - Good game, but buggy as hell when I played it, might be patched now
  • New Vegas - Currently playing it, and loving it.

Two Worlds II isn't bad tbh. Basic combat is solid, actually, everything about it is solid, I didn't even skip any dialouges. The main story's stupid at first but it actually gets better the further you go, it's not an arpg to lose yourself in, but it's nice.

As for DA2, you can get a kick out of it on the consoles (where it plays like an ok H&S) because it's not that bad, but on PC I woudln't recommend it at all. I was really hoping DA2 would be for DA like ME2 was for ME.. but it wasn't :<

I'd say wait for Skyrim, I think Bethesda will finally step up thier game with this one. Thye've been letting out some dumb stuff lately.. Unless your into mods and then Oblivion and Fallout are good (but I myself don't like this.. black hole.. that is modding)
