    I just hated the inventory system and the overall slowness (seemingly) of how the story developed/got going (or how it didn't for me, lol)

    Yeah it took a good 2hrs for things to really get interesting. I was some 60+ hours of gameplay if you did a lot of side quests so.


    I can't imagine you playing Dragon Age: Origins though -- that games was over 100 hrs long... to say it took awhile is..... well...

    I have dragon age, lol
    It was no mass effect but I admit to never finishing it. Didn't really care for the combat

    One of the best RPG's I've ever played imo. Finished all the DLC's and everything. Maxed out a character of each class.

    You sure do need to finish, and then pick up Dragon Age 2 once you're done. :p

    so much this.


    A lot of DA:O fans didnt really like DA2 but i loved both of them, even though they were very different games.


    DA:O has a really, really deep story though if your explore it. The backstory of the old gods/Tevinter and Andraste is fascinating.


    I think i might play some da2 right now. my DW rouge was such a crit monkey --- pure liquid damage lol

    I had way to much trouble getting good at the combat in origin... Ended up putting it on easy, then quit playing

    I thought the combat in DA2 was better. A lot of people thought the game overall was worse though.

    Hahaha

    I think just focus on Strength and Constitution (HP) and make sure to have a healing mage around. I also played a shield warrior as my main. Slow but she was still the best DPS in the party.

    I also always ended up taking 2 mages and gave them both some healing - though Wynne was clearly a better healer and Morrigan better dps. Then of course Leliana to pick locks and woo me with that sexy ambiguously European accent. :D




    Yeah it was definitely lacking in some areas, but i enjoyed the combat and story. Esp. the way the story was told.

    The re-used environments were just terrible. But I dug the game overall,

    I don't hate fallout, I appreciate it as a great game. It just ended up boring the shit out of me.

    Fallout gets much more fun if your acquire some of the unique weapons.


    Toasting a Death Claw with the Firelance is big fun :)

    Two and a half weeks!

    I was pretty annoyed to find out I don't have the following week off like I thought I did.
