Well that's the resounding endorsement I've needed to decide if I'm buying it or not.

I appreciate that

Awesome, it's an awesome story, and a very simple game. I just always warn that if you prefer action filled games, like visually anyway, it won't do that. It plays similar to diablo for action/fighting and is purely story driven. To me that's awesome because the game has content and isn't worried about being pretty. While it is a good looking game for when it came out, it does have a sense of it being older than it really is. Lots of content, long story, and totally re playable. Oh and always check the wiki - I love it when I can play a game and there's so much that I need a wiki for it, like Guild Wars, Oblivion, Skyrim, etc.

If you end up getting it and liking it, id suggest getting the newest one, DAI. It's more up to date, and has from what I can tell just as big of a story. I haven't finished it but from what I've read I;m only a quarter way through and I thought I was almost done, which blew my mind. Really fun game as well thus far. You don't need to play either of them to play it as well. They have a thing online where you make an account and choose the history your character will know/have based on DAO and DA2. You don't need to actually use any characters from the games, you can make it up completely, so it's kinda nice for that.

Visually similar for sure, but I don't think its as complex as far as the actually character building goes. DAI not as RPG as DAO, but just has as long and as good of a story. I haven't played Neverwinter Nights though, so i cant say for gameplay. It visually looks similar though.

Not really in the sense of lots of actions in a row, it's more like Diablo, WoW or GW in terms of fighting with a skillbar (unless that's what you meant then yes that's what it is). You click certain skills and they activate them in real time, no turns, so it can be pretty intense. However they let you freeze time and queue up one skill to activate for each party member then unpause it and they all activate the skills you selected. So it can be very strategic while also real time action. It's actually quite fun, which is why I loved it.

Yup, DAO is easily one of my favorite games I've ever played. My friend lent me his game and I ended up buying all the DLC even though I didnt own it haha. I then just bought it from him since he never needed it back. That's why I like DAO more than DA2, DA2 you can't do that even slightly. I tried, and theres virtually nothing to do in it. Every dungeon is the same and it becomes more grinding than questing so it's really boring imo. DAO has hours of content in it if you're willing to explore it, it's just not all obvious.

That many hours?
I thought the game was more linear than that, but from what you're saying it sounds like a lesser Skyrim.

#114 - bknob (11/05/2015) [-]
Yup, all on one character. Depends on how you go about the quests, theres a ton of hidden side quests, board jobs, DLC etc. My favorite is always doing the mage tower first then going straight to denerim to find the ashes so when you start redcliffe youre virtually done. I also go through every nook and cranny to get my guy level 20 by the end and play the crap out of it. Then I get everyone on my side as much as I can before the trials and such. The other chunk of hours comes from Awakening mind you, that game adds another chunk of time, though not as long.

It's nowhere near as open and free roaming as skyrim - there is a story you have to complete, but I will do virtually everything before it to max out my character. I also may or may not use an exploit to make myself filthy rich at the very beginning.. lol. With all the characters I had on my xbox, I likely have somewhere around 800-1000 hours clocked in it, including DLC. the 200 is just one play through I did on my PC where steam tracked it and it's the only character I have.

All of them, for DAO are fantastic. To me, Awakening is the true DA2, it is perfect in every way if you love DAO. More skills, more party members, just as immersive and almost just as long. That's where a lot of my hours got spent. You can take your character from the main game and plug him into that, then take that guy and play him in all the smaller expansions which is really fun to do. It's very well crafted and now I have to go back and sink 200 more hours into it.. dammit.

i would also like to add with origins, it had a much more customizable ai for the characters you weren't playing at the moment. and i remember spending hours just on that part alone, so that i could play one character, abnd heve three backup characters reacting almost exactly how i would with each character in any given situation, which they slightly simplified for DA2, but in DAI it is almost nonexistant
#78 - anon (11/04/2015) [-]
id argue the combat was worse in DA2 as well. The animations were better, but a lot sense of tactics was completely lost, and as the encounters just had enemies spawn wherever, there was no point in positioning your guys anyhow because they'd just spawn everywhere. The story may have been more focused, but it was focused on shit. It had a lot of good ideas that were lost when EA gave them a short deadline
User avatar
#112 - bknob (11/04/2015) [-]
I agree with every you said haha, I was more so trying to give a less biased opinion on it based on what I've heard others say about it. To me DA2 is garbage, even in the "pluses" it has. That's why I made note that whatever pluses it has are in DAI and are executed much better.
