    I will never fricking understand what people see in Bioware games. The writing is shit, the combat is shit, the interactivity is only ever a gimmick at best. Why would anyone play something like this over an actual goddamn RPG?

    The only kind of good games they ever made were Baldur's Gate 1 and 2, and even they had a ton of fricking problems and bad writing.

      Anon I enjoyed DA:O but it's mediocre at best. The vast majority of cRPG's are better. Even the other ones by Bioware. Modern cRPG's like Pillars or BG3 kick the ever loving shit out of DA:O.

      For a hot minute with KOTOR and Mass Effect Bioware was a good developer putting out great titles in a niche genre.
      Then EA staged a hostile takeover and fired everyone that didn't suck their dick.

      It's more of an ASOIAF plot to me with the fantasy elements of LOTR. The story and characters are a lot more complex and brutal than the black and white background of LOTR, yet the various races and fantasy elements share more similarities with LOTR.

            lol no, DAO has shit writing. The entire point of the game is to go around gathering forces to fight against the darkspawn that are about to kill everyone and your companions will constantly find some reason to b***h and moan about you doing it when they signed up to help you do it just for contrived drama.
            I get it, you played DAO as a kid so you think its REALLY cool but get over it.

          What couple of good gimmicks? You sound absolutely moronic. Your character creation matters a lot more in DA:O than in Bg3. It's a complete travesty that DA:O isn't used as a foundation and improved on in the next games by bioware. They took the easy way out and made cheap shitty games without any depth as long as they can profit off their fanbase and virtue signal at the same time.

    Shit starts to feel formulaic after also playing KOTOR and Mass Effect. You do some tutorial mission. Then pick up your basic party members. Do a character developing side quest or two with some alignment based conclusion. Then there's some big mid-game event. Pick up a few more members and resolve some party related narratives. Then you sleep with a random party character and go save the world.

            Epilogue says you both fought for more control over the throne which sounds kinda based since you're keeping the woman in her place. Marriage didn't sound like it was all bad though since she greets you nicely in Awakening and the epilogue for that says she's also happy when you come back home.

            If you don't wanna do that though, there's also the option to become queen by marrying Alistair.

              >shitty pick one or the other "moral dilemmas"
              This is some Bethesda tier argument, you not being able to be friends with everyone is part of the roleplay and proper consequences and not most choices are not binary, there's plenty of variation in how you can handle each scenario.

    The Darkspawn are completely uninteresting. Mindless orcs and beasts with no personality. Even the higher orders of Darkspawn are just monsters who don't speak.

    Companion backstories are also boring. I began to dread those campfire conversation when a party member would drone on about their sad past or their exotic mother culture.

      Did you expect to talk to the darkspawn and maybe make a successful Speech check and become friends?

        Higher class darkspawn can talk, it says as much in the codex. This is also revealed in Awakening.

    Its mediocre at best
    Its decent game, but nothing to write home about, its fondly remembered only because its zoomer's first crpg and came out during a time when the genre was completely dead

    While it is an excellent CRPG, most people aren't cut out for this style. Thus corpo wanted to expand the audience to include the dumbs and the invalids.

        That depends on if you make him black, because her first BF was the player character.

                Are you fricking stupid? Morrigan makes zero attempt to hide that she's fricked other men for pleasure or manipulation. She doesn't view sex as holy because she didn't believe in love. It's not even that hard to miss unless you're completely speedrunning the romance

    I've been on Ganker long enough to see the nostalgia goggles kick in for DAO. Frickers hated it and we're constantly saying it wasn't peak. Now they're saying BG3 and Rogue trader are pozzed or whatever nonsense. I'll probably be here in another 10 years to hear you homosexuals complain about how BG3 was peak

          Tactics exist. Skill limit is higher then 8. Companion relationship level gives in game bonuses. Story is approximately on the same level as one another.

            2 is putrid rotten dog shit. A literally unfinished game with the most obnoxious c**ty party members in any wRPG, one body and rig for all female characters, npcs missing textures, a grand total of 3 maps that get recycled by opening and closing doors, and a disjointed story with no through-line and a moronic climax.

            Everything about the game is mind-bogglingly awful. "Tactical" combat based on positioning with enemies fricking spawning in from thin air is unforgivable.

              Anders is the only objectively terrible one, and that's more due to character assassination than anything
              >one body and rig for all female characters, NPCs missing textures, a grand total of 3 maps that get recycled by opening and closing doors, and a disjointed story with no through-line and a moronic climax.
              the muh unfinished cope is both true and overhyped, the story is servicable if boilerplate. I agree about the maps but plenty of other games get a pass for it for no reason
              I've never understood the searing anger from people about it, it's like the anger about ME3's endings people should've known that was coming given how they handled ME1->ME2

                They're all terrible except Varic. Anders is the worst, but Isabela is almost as bad. Meryl is the worst KAWAII UGUU character Bioware's ever made and her personal quest is the dumbest shit I've ever experienced

                It was a really fricking bad game, anon. Spectacularly bad in surprising and fascinating ways.

                I disagree on the other companions but that's fair enough
                I may just be getting more charitable as I age but to me it would warrant like a 6/10 (and not on the usual weird vidya review scale), fine but not worth more than maybe one replay at best, and more than anything a disappointment because there's kernels of a great game there that never came.
                I will unequivocally say the qun mary sue dlc is one of the worst of its kind I've ever seen with how little you matter to the story and how irrelevant your choices are

    It even had impregnation. But then Bioware decided they wanted the Call of Duty audience. Then woke shit started emerging etc.
    Hopefully BG3 has set us onto the right course.
