I loved this game so much. I pretty much didn't play any games for about a year OTHER than Dragon Age. Even playing it on console instead of PC the way god intended, I still thought it was the only RPG of the past decade worth propping up next to Baldur's Gate II. If I had a rig that could actually run it, I'm sure I would have enjoyed it all the more.

I agree with most of your points except the bit about dialogue being easy to influence to whatever outcome you want. I believe you said you played as a rogue somewhere. Having finished both as a rogue and a mage, rogue had a far easier time in dialogue.

I didn't really like how the game shoe-horned you into certain play styles, depending on how you developed your characters (and NPCs generally had a "right" way to develop). There were also a few balancing issues, but fights always felt "winnable."

It's a shame they didn't make a sequel *turns back to the unworthy Dragon Age 2 that is dead to me*

Dragon Age II is a big pile of decomposing scrotums. My review was way too lenient.

You exist because we allow it. And you will end because we demand it.
