Here be Dragons

If you haven’t played Dragon Age Origins yet, for shame. I want you to go and buy it this very second, and not return until you have finished playing it. Don’t worry, I’ll wait here while you’re gone.

Now that we’re on the same page, how great was that game? Developers will often throw around the word “replayability”, but after my second play through, this is the first game that has given me this much of it.

For numero uno I played an Elven Rogue, focused on Morrigan and Allastair as fellow party members, and took the choices which I thought were fitting to the role I was playing.

My last play through I was a Human Noble (image above), and took very different choices. It is astounding how different my game experience was! This game may well be Bioware’s crowning achievement for many years, though we all look forward to Dragon Age II.
