40 hours in and I still find Dragon Age Origins pretty boring... Does it get better? - Page 3

post #21 of 40
That's what demo's are for. I downloaded DA 2 demo and literally uninstalled it after 7 mins :/ I can't imagine the first DA to be that much better.

Feels like a console port.

And even then there's a good movie and a BAD movie. Mass Effect was alright you can't compare it to DA.

DA2 is crap. DAO was actually very VERY good. It is in my top 5 RPGs of all time. I rate it even higher than either of the Mass Effect games... but not that much higher. wink.gif

I think OP is probably just bored with games in general if DAO is giving him that much boredom.

Not only that but DAO was built from the ground up as a PC game. That's another reason I hate DA2... it's such a blatant port and is nothing like DAO. frown.gif

I'm thinking that maybe the OP will like DA2 better since he doesn't like the first.

Its an old-old-incredibly-old school RPG game. Basically:
Disregard the story, skip the dialogue, work on getting OP builds. Once you get into the whole 'I need more OP stuff' or 'I need to finish all the side quests', it gets fun. The AI is still crap and the combat is terribly grindy.

Also DA2 sucks. Dont bother.

Not all, but a large number of them, unfortunately.
