- I replayed this game way too many times
Every play-through I tell myself that I’m going to mix up the party yet I always wind up with Alistair, Morrigan, and the dog.ID: h91xufg
Hearing Morrigan's name is pretty fucking nostalgic.ID: h92dc9v
I can still hear her and imitate her exact intonation of 'indeed' to this dayID: h92069l
I mean, the arguing between Alistair and Morrigan is priceless.ID: h92hros
"We now have a dog and Alistair is still the dumbest one in the party."ID: h922jpu
Alistair Morrigain Shale supremacyID: h92de3u
Yes, shale best 4th character!ID: h91srvs
Sandal, What The Fuck?! What happened to all these Darkspawn?ID: h932n48
I have never seen so much effort put in the intro alone, it's amazing. Personal favorite of mine was the dwarf noble, hands downID: h911kuc
I remember my noble playthrough being really good, but the one that stood out for me was being a City Elf Blood Mage, eventually rising up to protect the city from which had shunned them using the dark powers. God I love that gameID: h924825
Is that with mods? Because you can't be a City Elf and a mage at the same time, picking the mage class automatically sends you to the Circle Mage origin storyID: h929gza
I saved Orzimmar for my last city to hit up for treaties, because I wanted to savor my brother's stupid look on his face when I rolled up with my posse, still very much alive.
The best dragon age by farrrrID: h9208nl
There was only 1 Dragon Age game. Never made any sequels, ever, nope.ID: h927tvh
Inquisition wasn't terrible. Just wasn't nearly as good as Origins. Multiplayer was more fun than the campaign though, honestly.ID: h927xt2
Inquisition was amazing though. 2 was also good besides the repeated environments, but do people really hate inquisition that much? I think it's one of my favorite games everID: h925qsr
DA2 was real rough on the player. 24/7 loading screens, I don't know how the game was even playable if you hadn't spent hundreds on an early SSD for your system to play from. Solo boss fights where if you were a caster build, the boss was just going to fuck you into a mushy pile of meat if you didn't kite them around pillars and have them get a few unlucky misses.
There is never enough times with this game. My personal GOAT.
This is one of Bioware's best work. This company was anyway on it's own level. Jade Empire, DAO, Kotor, Swtor, Baldurs Gate, Mass Effect 2, Neverwinter nights. They made the best stories in video games ever. And then they made Anthem....ID: h915gu7
I mean, they made mass effect andromeda before anthem, and while I still love the game for what it is they made dragon age inquisition before that and mass effect 3 and da2 both took big steps away from the quality of me2 and dao before them.
Bioware has been in a fairly steady decline for over a decade. We can only really hope that anthem was the low point they bounce back from.ID: h91rxve
Playing the legendary edition now and I still feel 3 is better than 2. 2 had the best squad mates but the story was relatively weak. 3 had better gameplay and ending controversy aside, the most impactful moments imo.ID: h91sefg
I personally enjoy me3 a lot more than me2. The weight of the situation alone made it a lot more enjoyable.
One of my favorite games of all time. I wish they never changed the combat in the sequels.
Check out Divinity: Original Sin if you haven't already. It's amazing.ID: h9117of
There was actual tactics and options you could use, and the variety of playstyles, back stories, backgrounds and how all of these would have an impact on your run through.
It really was a gem of a game, I'd kill for a remaster, but in its original style and not remade like it's sequelsID: h911hvp
Divinity is great! I also loved wasteland 3 for the same reasons after it was fixed.ID: h928cft
At some point in the game, some spell combinations made combat too easy though. Typically frost cone + shattering = one shot except against bosses. The Witcher 1 had the same problem with aard + execution.
That's typically the problem with RPGs: if you minmax and clear all the content, eventually you end up overpowered and there is no challenge.
It's been on my Steam for years and I keep meaning to play it! At this point I'm waiting to play it on the Steam Deck, I get much more hand-held gaming time these daysID: h9226tj
Man you really need to play it. It shows its age a bit in parts like the start but its still one or the best rpgs out there. I feel like it will be easiest with the decks touchpad or a mouse and keyboard as unlike the following games you have a lot more skills on a traditional pc hot bar so a numbers on the keyboard were a quick and easy way to utilise the like 10+ skills you had.
Swooping is bad
Love the game! The variations of play style makes it unique. My favorite was a dual-wielding heavy armor rogueID: h9194y2
I used dual wielding warrior but with extremely light armour, I had found an interesting exploit so I wanted to rely on speed and look like it hahaID: h91xfsj
Double Haste + stacking mana/stamina regen + Arcane Warrior = invincible stabby boi
I was so sad my elf couldn’t stay with Alistair at the end. She was pretty too. I need to load it up and take pics it’s been so long
Its that good huh? I guess I’ll try it out sometime
Man, I just never have managed to get into it. I've tried to play a few times, and I've gotten out of the tutorial once. It just doesn't stick for me.
Was the only dragon age I ever liked
Back when Bioware and EA liked making good gamesID: h90zwlz
EA always only liked money. And then they discovered the formula for easy money.
Brace for impact, as this only has started.
I never, ever managed to get past the miniboss fight before the Archdemon.
I even cleared the entire castle court battle without summoning reinforcements from any faction (except for the very last one after I got the defender achievement) but that fight? Never got it.
Ended up quitting without finishing the game.ID: h90xv1n
Which miniboss fight are you talking about? I don't remember there being any particularly difficult fights in the lead up to the final battle.
I just started playing through for the first time! I’ve always wanted to play the series, but never got around to it. Any tips?ID: h91qyna
Make zevran go invisible as much as possible and then backstab people. He'll murder everyoneID: h921s3l
I used to position 3 of my guys behind a door and lure hard enemies through with another character, create your own advantages!ID: h922he4
Get Shale as soon as you can. Amazing character.
Remaster it and I will pay for it 50 fucking times
I’ve played this game countless times. Definitely in my top 10 favorite games of all time.
