Is Dragon Age: Origins still a viable game to play in 2014?

Last year? Yeah. This year? No way.

I dunno, I think my copy expired last month. It smells a little bit, but there's nothing growing on it so I don't wanna throw it away.


I've heard that video games are good for up a month after the expiration date. I usually buy my video games in bulk and stick them in the freezer so they last a really long time.

Yeah its still a good game today. The graphics were a bit simple when the game even came out originally, so don't expect anything mind blowing there. The combat is fun and the story is good. I would get the complete edition if possible.

DA:O is the best game Bioware has ever put out that didn't also have Black Isle/Obsidian on the box.

I tried this but one game got freezer burn because the packaging wasn't sealed properly, so a lot of the air got in. As a result, all of the characters in the game appeared older.

Play them before their expiration date, don't risk the freeze.

I liked DA:O

Disliked most DLC *a couple pieces were ok/good*

Disliked Awakening

Disliked DA 2

And I'd still recommend playing through vanilla DA:O. Great game.

It's clunky gameplay with a generic story and setting. Hard to get into if you haven't played it back then.

I play old games for the story and characters. Not gameplay or graphics. Tetris? No. SNES jrpg Chrono Trigger? Yes.
