        You do Harrowmont's quests but then give the crown to Bhelen at the end. Your family line remains on the throne, the dwarves don't get a retarded king, and Bhelen gets reminded he's still your moron

      That's literally what Cyberpunk 2077 did with life paths, and contarian dipshits still to this DAY complain because apparently choosing a specific life path should lock you out of certain options/endings because uhhhhh it just should, okay?

      Never mind that Cyberpunk was an infinitely better game than origins, origins is old and no longer in the popular zeitgeist so therefore it is good, despite every single mechanic in it being worse than cyberpunk

      OP said RPGs.

        Yeah, RPGs.
        Or are you actually implying Cyberpunk is an action game? It has more stats and stat distribution than it does gameplay. It's literally more RPG than it is a game.

        >Guess you missed Cyberpunk?

        it was just the 10 minute tutorial mission and nothing else.

        Different intro mission, couple of "Well where I grew up" lines in dialogue. A couple irrelevant side-missions.
        >Nothing affects story.
        >nothing affects ending.
        Did you think I was talking about Cyberpunk?
        I was actually talking about both games.

          One single Dragon Age origin level is longer than all 3 Cyberpunk origins COMBINED

          and has more impact on the plot

            Objectively incorrect, and the quality of even a single line of cyberpunk's dialogue is higher quality and better written, achieving more than the entirety of Dragon age's script

      People make fun of it because it had zero impact outside of a 5 minute intro that all led to the same thing.

      Romance was better in Origins though. I'm playing DAO right now and the romance between my Warden and Leliana had more chemistry and felt more real than the romance between V and Panam, and I didn't even tried romancing Morrigan, which most people claim to be canon romance or whatever. The plot is also much better constructed and executed than Cyberpunk. Funny how a 2009 game can excel in some things where a 2020 game can't. Dragon Age Origins had soul put into it while Cyberpunk didn't.

      only because Loghain went full 4chan and blocked any sort of Orselian help under the paranoia that they would take over Ferelden from within AND that the Blight was fake news created by Orlais.

            Yeah, because Cailan died before he could fuck over everything by trying to make himself a legend.
            People tend to focus mostly on Loghain's personal feelings when it comes to Cailan's 'diplomatic relations' with Orlais, but he was 100% right that Cailan was making a fuckkng gigantic mistake.

        Of all the things Inquisition did wrong it at least showed that Orlais is a fucking political circus of maniacs.

                Orlais is not a military nation, they're a political powerhouse that operates through espionage, subterfuge, and carefully planned out events. Their grand plam was to have the daughter if their Empress marry Cailan in an 'equal marriage' and using that as a leverage point through which to infiltrate, subsume, and absorb Ferelden's nobility.

    although really cool and offers extensive amounts of replay value, its a burden on development. most people play a game once or twice so they end up making content most won't play
    better they focus time on making the main story longer

    i'd like to see this feature in a shorter game though
