Just my opinion: I liked the story of Dragon Age 2 and its unconventional plot structure, and especially the twist at the end (for me, it was a number of twists, actually). The gameplay is pretty mindless, but I found the sense of control more satisfying. Repeated environments didn't bother me. The first game's environments are pretty ugly, so I think it's weird that people pretend to have standards for environment art in these games. If you just want another cliche "epic" journey, don't bother. I have a feeling the absence of that is what really bothers everyone.


EDIT: Also, don't base your decision on the consensus here. The people here are lemmings. They go into threads with the intention of giving their own input, and without a hint of embarrassment, will do little more than express the popular opinion -- and that's it.

Take Kevin_OS's post, which is a perfect example. It's completely dependent on whether it helps build a consensus; it offers nothing. It's fodder.


Being dismissive to everyone that doesn't like a product like that is what makes people use the word Biodrone. I also wouldn't call others lemmings when you're doing the exact same thing for the opposite side of a matter.

Origins was good, Dragon Age 2 was abysmal.


Couldn't ask for anything better to prove my point.


Origins was more than just good. it was excellent, a near 10/10. DA2 is more a 6.57/10. The thing that saved it for me was that at least the choices mattered somewhat and the wonderful banter between those in your party was still there.


I guess you thought you knew the one thing that would convince me: saying that you liked Dragon Age Origins.


Really don't care about convincing you, your use of his quote as some sort of dismissive proof was juvenile.

I was just trying to infer that you can't judge DA2 fairly using DA:O, it isn't a fair comparison.


To the first part: that's an empty comment. To the second: you're just repeating popular opinion. Is the idea to be annoying by doing the thing I criticized? Because that actually is juvenile.

I have to say, your reading comprehension must be as good as that of a pair of uneducated breasts, because you didn't understand a thing I wrote.

Worth it for the story pretty much and combat is fast and fun but Origins is so much more.

I didn't mind the reusing areas thing like most people since they conveyed friendships over years and what not and I like that kind if stuff.
