I’m a fan of RPGs, and I recently finished the Dragon Age: Origins game and started the new one, Dragon Age II. I loved the Dragon Age: Origins, so Dragon Age II is going to have to be pretty outstanding to keep up the tradition and win me over from the Final Fantasy crowd. Is it really that good, you ask? Yes! Here are 7 reasons I loved Dragon Age: Origins.
1. The plot
I really liked the plot and story line in Dragon Age: Origins. I chose to be a warrior, so I was Aeden, the Grey Warden, on a quest to defeat the darkspawn that have overrun Ferelden. There are plenty of twists and turns in the plot, and it definitely held my interest and made me want to keep playing.
2. The side quests
While I loved the main plot line (defeating darkspawn), there are plenty of side quests that captured my interest and got me hooked even more. Some are long and take lots of time to complete (like the Urn of Ashes quest) while others are super-quick to do… but all are interesting, and add another sort of depth to Dragon Age: Origins.
3. The characters
While some may think it’s formulaic and tired, I liked the range of characters in Dragon Age: Origins. There are warriors, rogues, mages, and more, from several tribes. Dwarves, golems, mages, templars, humans, and elves all work together and war amongst each other, with lots of history… it makes for another interesting level to Dragon Age.
