Dragon Age Origins

What does everyone think so far? Played it at a buddy's house last night, makes me want to go buy a 360 or PS3...

I heard from a buddy that the 360 version has some issues because it was released too early. He said that Bioware is aware of the problems and supossedly has plans to patch it.

I didn't get to play long...maybe 30 minutes, but it was enough to make me want to buy both a 360 and the game itself...

Got it for the PC.

Graphics are awesome, Voice Acting is top notch and the story has tons of depth and is very well told so far (about 5 hours into it). It almost plays like an interactive movie at times.

A bit more dialog than I usually like in a game but it's so well done that it really doesn't interfere with the "fun" factor.

The NPC's are great and the interactions between your party members is very entertaining to listen to when running around.

Great game!

I forgot this was out already... wanted to demo it first but it seems like a likely purchase for me.

I'm about 10+ hours in. God I love this game, and if it wasn't for class I wouldn't put it down.

So yeah im about 23 hours in, about 30% done with the game and I have to say it's pretty amazing. The depth with the dialog and the intense battles make this game definitely game of the century.

Been playing it, but the load times are obscene and I hesitate every so often as it tries to pull info off the hard drive. So until I get a new hard drive, this is on the shelf. It's not fun enough to bother this much (though it is fun).

Played it. Beat it. Love it. Get it if you don't have it and you like Bioware RPGs such as KOTOR, NWN2, etc.

I've been having fun so far. it's taken me a long time to get my character build right because of so many factors to consider like which talents are the best to use, combat mechanics, (not least of all which skills are bugged and therefore alternate ways of using them). I've liked the dialogue compared to other bioware games and the way you fight is pretty fun, in style of baldur's gate

another reason I find myself redoing my character's look is the shallow cheekbones. why is it default, it's not natural and then if you have a beard you can't alter your face, so the beard isn't even attached to your head



Impostor! He's got a fake beard on!
