    I didn't like the combat, and II isn't terrible, but yeah.
    I was gonna say the Witcher 1, but that came out two years prior to DA:O.
    It's amazing how much the genre has stagnated since then.

      The combat was fire though. It's 3rd person 3D so it gaslights you into thinking it's skill based, but really it's RTwP, which in turn is just turn-based with extra steps. Once you realize that and get a handle on tactics it's easily the most rewarding combat in the series.

        While I agree that the combat system has potential (even it is RTwP...) the problem with the first Dragon Age was the encounter design or rather lack thereof.

      Inquisition is a weird one for me. As a storyfag who loves a good CYOA narrative, I treat DA:I as interactive fiction, and on that account the writing and pacing is actually really good. But the combat is so abysmally boring, it feels like I'm grinding to get to the good parts. I think I'd unironically play a mod that just outright removes all combat from the game.

        >I treat DA:I as interactive fiction
        That's what it was designed to be like. The game is only good if you install a bunch of QoL mods and turn the difficulty all the way down so you can power through the dogshit gameplay to get to the next story point.

      This, I've played it like 3 times and the combat never gets old for me, even weak builds like 2h warriors can cleave mooks like nothing, CC and deal ok single target damage if you manually weave your skills between hits.
      Even the OP as fuck mages aren't too bad if you don't have more than 1 in your party, I always played them as CC monsters + cone spells for more CC and delete mooks so I didn't get why everyone kept bitching about them I played a 2 mage party dropping fireballs easily clearing full rooms like nothing

I've even played 60 hours of the early access. But Dragon Age Origins is just in another league, BG3 in comparison is like trying to scratch an itch that won't scratch.

        There’s three types of people
        Some dislike that it’s using the name despite being only indirectly connected to the previous two games, which is fair enough
        Some have a console war tier mentality when comparing it to Pathfinder, which is fucking retarded since you can easily buy or pirate both with minimal effort
        The third is a single schizo that that has alerts set up for any BG3 thread and promptly spams any political bait he can to derail it and samefags replies if nobody takes the bait. It’s downright peculiar

          The other end of this coin is people for whom the "original game" is tabletop dungeons & dragons. Fans of BG1 and BG2 seem to forget they're playing an adaption of a game that already had an existing community and following before these games existed, and BG3 is a different studio's attempt to adapt the new ruleset to the same setting. To think BG3 isn't faithful to its roots is just ignorant.

      DA:O is shamelessly ripping off the LOTR-esque fantasy setting but with a grimdark twist, with clear ASOIAF influences. And some of the concepts it plays with within the regular fantasy cliches (the whole system with the circle of magi and templars, the fade, etc.) is refreshingly original, strong fantasy worldbuilding. It embraced the tropes rather than using them as a crutch like a lot of devs may. But perhaps the best part about it is that it doesn't feel like it's using its free license as a video game to cut corners, it actually takes itself seriously and succeeds at being competent. The writing in this game could pass as a bestselling fantasy novel from the shelf of a bookstore during the time when it was created, and I say that as somebody who has been consuming fantasy since I was little.

        Playing the doubles advocate, the mages/Templar conflict was pretty clearly ripped from wheel of time, and since Martin lifted plenty from Jordan too, the ASOIAF references could pretty easily be from there too.

          Sure maybe, and to your credit I actually haven't finished WoT (not looking forward to author switch even though I trust Sanderson)
          But where I noticed ASOIAF influences in DA:O is because the A plot is completely identical. An existential ancient threat in the form of supernatural undead creatures is about to come out of nowhere and destroy everything, but the realms of men are too busy infighting in politics and lust for power that they don't take the threat seriously.
          Ostagar = The Wall
          Korcari Wilds = The North
          Wilderfolk = Wildlings (lol)
          Darkspawn = The Others
          And so on and so forth, I'm sure there's a lot more, to the point where I consider it deliberate homage.

            He's right though. The level design reflects that of MMORPGs, with the "open world" segments just being sprawling mob zones punctuated with small ares with quest NPCs, and the combat moving from tactical RPG to stat battle clicker game.

    Origins combat was essentially the same, but you actually had to move companions out of AoE and target the most threatening enemies, so unlike Inquisition, it almost felt like a game.

    No, this was the first game BioWare made after the EA acquisition and it shows. The difference in philosophy between it and Mass Effect is staggering.

      In DLC/marketing philosophy, maybe. But admit it, the base game itself is uncompromised.

      That transition in quality between Mass Effect 1 and Origins, on to Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age 2 is so obvious. You can tell all the competent writers/developers etc were probably starting to leave the company and being replaced with talentless people. It shows the beginning of the end for Bioware.

        I was mainly talking about the mechanics, but I do believe the infinity engine games (especially bg2 and iwd) aged better than most 3d games from that era.

    The Dragon Age games (Origins included) stands out with a weird quirk from every other CRPG in the sense that maybe 25%-30% of its fanbase is female, and its female following is extremely devoted to the series, into lore, completionism, etc. For the new game coming out DA4/dreadwolf it's even higher, the vast majority of people I've seen following news about it are women, I'd estimate something like 60% based on what I've seen. Name another franchise like this, and try to figure out why the stats are like this. Do you think Bioware is aware of this discrepancy?

      Well aware. My sisters favourite game series of all time is Mass Effect. She didn't really enjoy Origins, but she also loved DA2 and Inquisition.

          Anon, you can't just go around telling your siblings to choke on your dick.

            NTA but anon said "a" dick, not your dick. Why would the first dick that pops into your head be yours? I think you are projecting.

              Well it's the closest dick you can get, and choke on for that matter, so it makes sense.

        That seems to be the common opinion among them. It's rare to see a girl explicitly preferring Origins over those two.
        I suspect it's the general art direction and atmosphere of Origins being grounded and very dark that repels them from fully enjoying the game.

          Does the fact that my gf likes Origins the most and that she was raised by a single father have any sort of correlation?

      Yes, it's why their games lean heavily into interpersonal relationships, wokeshit, and female brained dialogue. It's been like this since kotor and maybe even earlier to a smaller degree.

      Nice bait, for a franchise with "Dragon" in the title there are actually a very small few dragons in Dragon Age, especially DA:O.

      EA truly fucked them over. ME3 forever killed my trust in Bioware and still when I first launched Inquisition I was shocked by the sheer soullessness of everything: narrative, gameplay, art direction, but most of all music. When I first heard that dawn will come song I just quit the game out of sheer disgust and cringe. Jesus wtf happened to the series.

        Rose tinted glasses. Leliana's Song in DA:O is equally as cringe, if not more cringe, than The Dawn Will Come in DA:I.
