I finally finished Dragon Age: Origins today and wow, what a rush. I may be terribly easy to entertain but that game hooked me from moment one and never let me go. I’m almost a little embarrassed to admit, but I really found myself emotionally involved in the game, I cared about my companions and worried over choices I had made… that’s quite remarkable for a video game I’d say. I found it immensely satisfying. I ended up shelving my Human Noble Rogue in favor of my Human Mage because I’m just a Mage at heart I think. I’ve always been drawn to casters and I couldn’t resist the allure of playing one all the way through. Though I absolutely will finish the game out on my Rogue as well as she will likely make vastly different choices than my Mage did and I will be very interested to see the results of her actions. At any rate, I managed to get a relatively happy ending… sort of. If you’ve played, I’m sure you know what I mean. Having played a female character, I found the choices that I had to make were much more difficult than the choices my husband made on his male character. I have to maintain DA doesn’t exactly cater to gamers of the female persuasion, but still, I highly recommend giving it a try, it’s just that amazing. I’m already planning to buy the expansion pack as soon as it comes out on Tuesday!
Here’s some parting screenshots I took today!
