    Thou must returneth whence thou came.
    This land is peaceful, its inhabitants kind, but thou dost not belong.
    I beg thee, plunge down from the plank, and hurry home.

    You mean that game that begins by ironically winking at the audience and sending us to fight rats, as if that was funny rather than excruciatingly generic and beneath what we had expected of BioWare until then?

    For all of Dragon Age's strengths later in the game, there's just too many "RPGisms" in it for me to find very interesting. I'm glad I played the whole way through it, because some of the late game content is fantastic, but I can't bring myself to make it through the beginning again because I get bored out of my brain. It's just such a complacent game, so happy to revel in fantasy RPG cliches while being a simplified rehash of Neverwinter Nights and Baldur's Gate.

    Plus the combat in Dragon Age kind of sucks. It's difficult in such a way that most players will find a single dominant strategy they use against almost every group of enemies and every boss, turning the general gameplay experience into a monotonous, repetitive chore. Then again, BioWare have never really been that good at combat, but Dragon Age sticks out as one of the worst examples.

    I liked the combat in Dragon Age:Origins (mostly out of nostalgia, because KOTOR was my first RPG and it plays similarly) plus the characters were nice. DA:O shows the typical Bioware structure: plays all the conventions of the genre straight, but (in my opinion) successfully, if you don't mind the originality being rather lacking, that is. I think it's one of the best games by Bioware. When they tried to break these conventions, we got the Mass Effect 3 ending, so...

    Anyways, in my opinion the best modern story-driven RPGs are the Witcher games.

    P.S.: Sorry for the derail, though this topic is quite worthless, and thanks everyone for the +reps ^^

    Can't argue with The Witcher. In particular, I find the second one to be the pinnacle of conventional, story-driven RPGs. It has just enough known factors to be comfortable, but using the setting of The Witcher also demanded a different approach in many ways when compared to other RPGs. I think Dark Souls is a glimpse into the future of many RPGs, whereas The Witcher 2 is the perfected form of the old model. This generation has been exceedingly lucky to have two such excellent RPGs to its name.

    Concerning the Dragon Age combat, I found it to be worse than that of other BioWare RPGs, including KotOR, NWN and so on. Mostly because it had a lot of difficulty without having much balance to it, so it was a hassle until you found a dominant strategy within your party's current abilities. Then it just became a cakewalk. I found KotOR and other BioWare games to have much better balance, because difficulty was always more moderated and appropriate, requiring enough micromanagement to provide some tension but never getting to the stage of having to boringly pause at every interval.

    Dragon age 2 is far worse than anything they've done with the masseffect series. I really liked them, but ea seems determined to ruin them and so far its worked.

    I didn't think Dragon Age 2 was technically bad in game terms. But it was a story-driven game that only gives you the main plot during the third act and everything else seems pointless. While it's clear they were going for a fantasy "slice of life" kind of thing, they still needed some kind of consistent arc to tie things together, and the game just didn't have that. So as much as the game was solid to actually play, it sucked all the relevance out of itself by disassociating the three different plot arcs.

    Like, my sinfully hot sister died and nothing ever came of that. That sucks. She was an awesome caster, too. So I lost a party member and that was never really followed up or held any relevance to the plot later on. Pointless pointless pointless.
