I purchased it when it came out. I'll buy all the dlc once I get around to it. I know it's great but I also know once I go in I'm not coming out for a while.

Yes, it's a larger game, especially if you play a lot of Gwent.

What is strange is that I didn't play through Witcher 2 initially. I tried got 1/6 through and lost interest. Came back a year later started over and finished it twice in a row from scratch. It looks like the same thing is going to happen to Witcher 3 because I didn't play it long enough to get obsessed so I'll have to start it from scratch again.

Witcher 3 starts working really well once you get past the first area (even though that area is pretty damn awesome for a prologue).

I'm replaying it right now and I wish I could play this without knowing about it....it's a great game.

I loved Loghain from the first game. Same voice actor from one of my favorite video game characters in Kain from the Legacy of Kain games. The first game blew my mind.

Solas is compassionate and not selfish which is what makes him so damn interesting to me. He's an anomaly for what I like but he does have the insane power thing going for him.

I am glad by the end of the third we have a villain outside the darkspawn. They are great but how much farther can you go there. Sure I want more darkspawn but I'm good without them being the main villains again.


No series comes close to the lore from Dragon Age. Witcher 2 was awesome but it's vastly different which I like but definitely prefer the lore For Dragon Age as opposed to the game of thrones adult oriented content of that series.


Ha, I pretty much do the same thing. I do my first playthrough as my noble swordsman, which is my "canon" playthrough, and then I play through again as an evil mage. One of the things I like about origins, jade empire, kotor, etc. is that bioware gave you the freedom to be an evil prick if you wanted. I always enjoyed playing through twice to see how things changed. In recent bioware games though they seem to be getting away from that kind of freedom, which I think is sad. Not much really changes based on your choices in DA:I. You could be a jerk, but not really a truly evil dude. I enjoy the freedom to do either.

This may also sound weird, but you know what I really liked in origins? The camp. I just loved talking to my companions by the fire, and I felt the atmosphere at camp was amazing. I really felt like I was part of an adventuring group out to save the world. Origins just knocked the atmosphere out of the park in general imo.

It really did.

It's an amazing game. Easily my favourite of the last decade.

Indeed. It was a good time to be a bioware fan, cuz not long after origins, Mass Effect 2 came out. So I went right from playing the shit out of origins to playing the shit out of Mass Effect 2. Those were the days man.

So, if you could have one thing guaranteed in Dragon Age 4, what would it be? It can be a story element, game mechanic, combat system, character, etc. If you could only pick one and have it in the game for sure, what would it be?

Easily, less maps with more memorable areas/quests. I don't like the paint by numbers quests Dragon Age 3 had. The main story was interesting but everything else was weaker.

How can you play this game so similarly to myself and champion superman. Anyways, yes I agree the first game probably had a lot more time in developing it then the sequels so I'd gather that's the reason why.

As I previously said there won't ever be an experience that rivals my first play through of Origins. I just know they can come close to the sun again like certain parts of Inquisition the Solas dlc especially the ending of it which IMO is the true ending to the game.

Yes, you truly felt by the end of the main quest in origins you went on this adventure with them. It was surreal hence my utter devotion to this series even if they don't come close to recreating that sense of connection to a fantasy game.

That's surprising. You should try them, similar to the DA games in a lot of ways. Great stuff.

I am more into medieval sorcery with these types of games. Sci Fi is great in a movie setting for me but when it comes to these quest like games medieval, fantasy setting is what I love. Witcher 3 after god of war. I don't game enough to devote the time but I do suspect I would like the games if I gave them a chance.

I think you would, especially if you like Star Trek and Star Wars, those were the main inspirations for Mass Effect and it's pretty obvious.

I'm like you, I prefer Medieval fantasy over Sci Fi usually, but the Mass Effect series grabbed me in a way no other game series ever had. If you ever have the time or get the chance, I think you should definitely give them a go.

Just one? Ha.

-Less MMO shite.
-Darker tone.
-Play my Warden again.
-Better writing.
-Less annoying companions. Seriously, **** off Sera.
-Proper tactical combat.
-Bring back the (imo) superior magic trees from the first two games.
-Less ****ing with the lore.

etc, etc.

I have been on record to make this claim. I would take the experience of Dragon Age Origins over a relationship with a woman. It was that amazing. But maybe one day I'll get around to it but right now when I do go knee deep into a video game these two already called shotgun.

Dragon Age: Origins might be the most immersed I've ever been with a video game world. It was Lord of the Rings Trilogy for video games

Loved Dragon Age 2 as well, but it's a B/maybe B+ to DA:O's A+.

Haven't been able to get into Inquisition, as I got it on PlayStation Store for like $11...on the PS3. The last gen version (all 10 minutes I played of it) was pretty horrible. Imagine getting through Fellowship of the Ring and Two Towers, only to find out Return of the King was filmed in VHS-quality resolution and the "TRACKING" lines and static popped up every cut. Very disappointing.

Such a disappointment brought me to Mass Effect, and it's been a blast.
