      This, the first is by far the best. I wouldn't mind the 2nd as much if they didn't recycle every location over and over again. The story, while not origins level, was decent.

        I kind of liked the ending of my playthrough on 2. I ended up killing nearly half of my party.

        The rest of the game was pretty forgettable.

      A great game all around, you won't be disappointed.

      don't listen to this homosexual though. While the sequels never quite reach the peaks that Origins does, 2 and Inquisition are still very fun, interesting games. 2 is a very interesting drama with excellent characters and Inquisition is extremely funny and has a lot of fun customizations, even if the villain was dogshit. The final DLC was excellent as well.

      If you like Origins, you'll like the others but temper your expectations. None of them are stack up quite as well to Origins but it's pretty difficult when Origins is such a great game.

          you'll like it if you don't go in with the expectation that it'll be as good as origins. Even 2 has its high points. 2 does an excellent job at shorter stories that still give the world some depth. I loved how much it elaborated on spirits and demons, how it explained the crux of the mage-templar conflict and the speech Avellene gave to console Hawk was such a great tear jerker. Fenris was also a wonderful character that served as an amazing study on the effects of trauma and revenge.

          People have a lot of legitimate complaints about both games, however there's still a lot of great writing in both of them.

        I'm sick of the historical revisionism that has been happening with this game where people pretend it's bad all of a sudden, but that being said I think this game was the harbinger (hurr hurr) of Bioware's fatal flaws.I think Origins was still Bioware's peak.

                Are you just fully incapable of acknowledging people can enter in between conversations in a message board? It's good you're not a gay, but it feels moot when you inadvertantly support it. That's my argument. The only time I ever had a game like that is Bully and the moment I realized you could kiss guys I refunded. It doesn't matter if you can play against the intention, those actions never stop the creators from thinking "I can put more of my degeneracy in it since no one actually brick walled me.".

          >inquisition
          and that one too? i remember during launch it felt weird to play because it was in frostbite engine

          Well, DA2 was considered a flop by most fans since it simplified the combat a lot, went for a very flashy fantasy aesthetic of early 2010s and simpled down the rpg elements/dialogue a lot and it reused graphics for multiple zones kek, but i personally really liked the characters like varric and even edgelords like anders and fenris and merrill is best girl for romance, as a self contained story its the most fun i had in da trilogy, if you do play it make sure to go in knowing it's faults and then you might enjoy it. I didn't enjoy inquisition that much mostly because I had very high expectations from seeing the trailer and expected it to be the new coming of christ, and instead got a gay bdsm bull, a ugly blonde lesbian elf and literally no good heterosexual romances. at that point it started feeling like DA is just no longer a franchise targeted at guys like me, but it's got really nice graphics/soundtrack and if you turn off your brain openworld is not bad if you treat it as an mmo i guess

          There's no option to clarify whether that's liking him as a romance option or not. For me that would be no, I prefer Alistair. Too bad he's only interested in female wardens. But otherwise, I enjoy Zevran for the most part.

                Not much really. I was more interested in characters like Oghren and Morrigan. Usually ended up having to kill him after he second betrayal. Just don't really care for Antivans in general.

                Did you somehow miss his personal quest or not talk with him all that much? I am surprised by the amount of people that killed him off during either encounter.

                Although the approval system is a bit rudimentary at worse. You can alleviate Zevran's dislike towards your character with gifts. Sure it's a bit commodifying but I'd say it's worth it. Plus his personal quest works in tow with that.

                I suppose I must have lucked out somehow. I didn't have too much difficulty myself. I didn't condone many of his prior actions at first. But then I decided to keep to myself about them later on. There are a good assortment of gifts you can come across as well without any additional dlc gifts.

      BG3 is filled to the brim, it is overflowing with gay shit. It's legitimately harder to find a straight pairing then it is to find a gay one. When you save the gnomes they shout about how they dearly miss their gay lovers. A lesbian couple fights the big bad in act 2 and even joins your camp.

                Should I build a party to only use a couple simple abilities that can run entirely on tactics, set the difficulty a step lower than I otherwise would and then pretend that tactical pausing doesn't exist and just play like an action game?

                Play on normal like the rest of normalchads, it's the intended difficulty and the game is balanced around it. I play sub optimal probably and have never struggled really. Alistair tanks, Morrigan and I do most of DPS and Leliana sings. I barely even pause and it's comfy. Just swallow the braindead two handed warrior pill. Big sword go brr in enemy guts

        Biggest issue with Arcane Warrior is the power curve. You get basically no benefits for a mage until like level 16 or something. I know it let's you wear heavy armor but that just hinders you with fatigue and the really powerful armor isn't available until late-mid game.

              Which doesn't make any sense if you like TB. You're literally waiting, doing nothing until your turn. How is actually playing the game more tedious than that? And again you don't have to do that until the later difficulties, from Normal to below you just haven't to give your party good equipment, carry poultices and not spec them as jokes.
              You're whining about a self imposed challenge

                >just set a low difficulty so you don't have to deal with how rtwp gets annoying at high difficulty
                this comment thread started with

                Thoughts on how to keep myself from burning out a quarter of the way through DAO? I think it's from constantly stopping to queue shit up. I like turn-based tactics but RTWP, especially stacking a party with mages with targeted and position-sensitive abilities, seems to exhaust me.

                Should I build a party to only use a couple simple abilities that can run entirely on tactics, set the difficulty a step lower than I otherwise would and then pretend that tactical pausing doesn't exist and just play like an action game?

                which suggested EXACTLY THAT you frickwit

              nta. Yea. You'll pause, make sure your team is doing what it needs, then take control of the mage for the specific positioning needed.
              Now things are unpaused and the battle unfolds before you as you move to the best position for the cone of cold. It's cool

                Anon, I said that was just one example for a reason. Trace the conversation back to the origin post and it's clear that the cumulative effect of optimally doing things with multiple characters at once, stuttering the gameplay, is what is wearisome. Stop assuming that people don't know how the game works and it only need be explained - that is precisely in conflict with being worn down by optimizing shit.

                >You can not set tactics to make a mage move to a position that will hit the most enemies with cone of cold.

                >that will hit the most enemies
                That tactic will use the ability when a group of enemies is present, yes. That is all. It will not find the right moment and position to hit as many as possible.

The tactics system was an attempt to compensate for the issue which helps some but not enough. Reducing annoyance by simply accepting a suboptimal execution is precisely NOT what I want.

                But it isn't, it gives the tools to automatize the process for most of encounters. Only on harder levels and very difficult fights do you actually need to micromanage the fight.

                Let me break it down in moron for you
                The Tactics system helps you automatize a lot of the combat process, which is good for two things: I helps you avoid having to micromanage fights if you Don't like to do it and it helps speed most of the simpler fights because the AI tactics can handle it
                If however you insist on playing on higher difficulties than you're gonna be needing to micromanage a lot more, because the fights are harder
                Think of it like the Automatic Battle System in the Total War games. The machine can handle the easy fights for you, not not the hard ones

                >All of your problems with the system come from playing a difficulty you can't handle
                That I find the system to be unfun when I need to use it doesn't mean I can't handle the difficulty, you illiterate frick. You have been utterly unable to get this through your head from the outset. Stop replying to me.

          Both are products of its time. DA2 was made during a "instead of making a big game for years, let's make smaller and shorter games faster". DA3 was a mix, "you know what, a game with a number in the title doesnt sell because people think is a sequel, so DA3 is DAI now" + "let's try some sort of open world/mmrpgs this time + more bisexuals + multiplayer". Both are designed by committee in every aspect.

            DA2 as a product is a perfect example of a clear vision and idea that was a rush job, the game very clearly knew what it wanted to be and tried its best within what limited development time it had.

            DAI has all the hallmarks of being a committee board designed game, there's way too many disparate elements tugging at each other and additions clearly just there because it was board mandated that it be there.

      Man I fricking hate how ugly this game looks nowadays, the models just look so fricking goofy, women have massive shoulders and hands that look like a yaoi manga. I wish they'd remake the trilogy properly, and not anything lazy like ME trilogy, but a proper from ground up remake while leaving it for the most part same in the first game and maybe bigger changes in sequels. would be a dream come true

      I think both versions are cute. I do prefer her Inquisition model though. One of the few things about that game I like.

        There's mods to pretty it up, but know that the only reason her model looks so good in Inquisition is because everyone saw how shit it was in the trailers and complained

          yeah im using one of the morrigan inquisition ports but it does look somewhat weird how much better she looks than every other character. i was using that DA redesigned mod as well and that one fits the game a bit better. what trailer are you talking about? but im glad she came out the way she did

          DA2 had 3 different world state choices with one of them being the dalish, inquisition defaulted to the dalish one.

          thats gay as frick, bioware cannot help themselves and just keep disappointing me every time i learn anything new about them

        ??? The game looks fine. Some models are lazily reused in a lot of areas but they look ok aesthetically. The fact that (You) just said that Inquisition Morrigan looks better than the Origins one makes me wonder if (You) have some kind of mental disability sir. She looks like a cute and sexy young goth girl in the first game, meanwhile her model in Inquisition looks like an old hag (not even the sexy one)

        Came an unholy amount of times to her Inquisition look. She is pretty but they added some imperfections that just make her hotter. I think this might be one of the earliest character designs of that kind. Before that waifus were just pretty and perfect but after DA:I came, the other girls that were obviously meant to be hot but had imperfections such as TW3 Triss, who looked much smoother in TW2 or even TW1. Yen also has some moles etc.
        Sure graphics got better but even with realistic graphics many devs, especially japs, just design females that look like dolls with zero imperfections

Sten is a black gorilla Black person and by far the worst character in DA.

      a large portion of the people here are zoomers who started gaming with the 360 era. Hence they have no concept of franchises that were established before then and had no standards by which to compare. Which is why you see nonsense like Mass Effect 2 was a good game and people actually liking Dragon Age 2.

      Those were the first games those people played in the franchise (Like Fallout 3) so with no basis for comparison, they seemed amazing to them and are now firmly cemented as good due to nostalgia.

      It's not their fault though, it will always be like this.

          of the reasons I already stated. ME2 is a decent game and if it were called something else it might get it a few extra points, but it doesn't exist in a vacuum. It's a horrendous sequel to a fantastic game that catered to people outside it's core audience. It's everything that should be despised and it was the first sign of Bioware's downfall. Dragon Age 2 is what cemented it.

              I don't dispute that the shooting mechanics are superior in ME2 compared to 1. But let's not pretend that every other aspect worsened and several established characters were character assassinated. Not to mention how much worse the plot and the main villains are and the absolutely comical final fight.

              >Translation: that is preferred by most people
              Correct. Like what Skyrim and oblivion did post Morrowind. They "streamlined" (dumbed down) the games in order to make it more palatable to more people. Which is why you now have to pick up ammo and no longer get to explore planets and read. In their own words they "want the Call of Duty audience" and that's what shaped their design philosophy.

              Lowest common denominator.

    Awful modern western RPG that started every single cancerous mechanic and trope or character archetype that will then come to populate subsequent games. Some might argue that KOTOR games were the real culprits, but they were nowhere near as offensive as Dragon Age had been, especially with its pathetic tryhard "This is the new shit" trailer. Babies born post 2000 that have nostalgia for fricking Dragon Age and Halo should honestly kill themselves.

      It's so hilarious how every single low IQ pseud thinks the games that they played when they were in their youth were the best, and everything after is terrible. Surely it must be a coincidence..... There can't be anons here that consider KotOR or Dragon Age good...

    I like Dragon Age 2 because default Femhawke is hot as frick and has the most overexaggerated sexy walking animation I've seen. I miss when Bioware was full of unapologetic coomers.

      Every female in the game had that animation. Worked with characters like Isabella, but was hilarious to see Merill do it.

      Jfc I forget how horny DA2 was, especially the Bethany massive breasts in first cutscene where Varric imagines them as even bigger.

      flemeth only looked like that at the start because they were too lazy to give her a proper distinct look or something, not that I think 2 was the right direction to go with it
      like leilana, when you compare the trailers and promo art to her in game, da1 was ugly as frick

        wasn't she some body hopping ancient witch? The model change makes sense canonically too I think. Also her original look is supposed to give that 'unassuming swamp lady' feel and then you find out she's a fricking dragon

          the model change is whatever, while I personally don't like the style the bigger problem I had with it was that they dropped it on you right at the beginning of 2, where in the timeline is somewhere around the beginning of 1, so she was simultaneously laying low as an unassuming old woman and larping as white haired maleficent and turning into a dragon in front of people and then letting them live to tell the tale
          that aside I meant more that I feel she would have been a bit more distinctive if they'd been able to do it, I dunno why 1 looked as bad as it did sometimes when it was in the oven for so long

            That's precisely why. DAO looked dated when it came out because it was in production for so long, that tech improved
            But it had good direction and conception and we were all looking forward to see what it could be on a better engine and up to date graphics
            And then 2 came out and it was a psp game
            And later Inquisition came out and looked like garbage not because the tech wasn't up to date nut because the art direction and aesthetic was garbage and frostbite perfectly re-created that garbage and threw vaseline on over it

        Da1 looked fine. I don't why (You) are trying to push some sort of meme about it looking ugly when it always looked decent both graphicly and aesthetically

          Not that anon but I have to say a good portion of the character models did seem rather off for a lack of a better word. I don't think it looks awful but even for its time it could've looked better. That's just my opinion though.

    One of the best RPGs ever. The combat may be a little outdated, you can always use cheats though.

          My personal list?

          Planescape Torment
          Baldur's Gate 2
          Shadowrun: Dragonfall + Hongkong
          VMTB
          Tyranny
          Deus Ex
          Arcanum
          Gothic 2 (could add in 1 too I suppose)
          Kotor 1+2

          I do like Dragon Age though, I just don't see it as one of the greatest ever.

            Also, is Tyranny that good?

              Fair enough, like I said I like Dragon Age.
              >Also, is Tyranny that good?
              Yes.

        It is. For sure.
        Great world with unique but familiar lore.
        Great combat system and great build variety.
        You can even do dumb shit like make a strength based mage and still succeed if you know enough about the game

      It's funny how much seethe Oghren causes in NuMales, women and "women" that unfortunately infest the hobby these days.
      Specially because nothing he does is much worse than Zevran, but for the oddest reason, the pretty bi elf doesn't get nearly as much shit for it

      He did but I recall him having an older brother who is a mage instead.
