Wow, you managed to find THE STORY in Dragon Age? Like what? 137-th Diablo is about to take over the world? King's advisor betrayed the king for no apparent reason?
I envy your talent to find the story where there is none.

Makes me wonder WHAT a dragon could possibly do if he ruled the world. Oh, and especially the dragon that can't talk. Get money, women, castle for himself, hm? There is the limit to storyline stupidity, and in case of Dragon Age, BioWare has gone far beyond it. As I've already said, villans in the game barely even have motivation.
Oh well, and talking about that limit, the main boss in ME 2 is a rip-off of a well known movie.

If these are BioWare's "fresh" ideas, BeWare. I hope they wrote ME 3 story before they ran out of the last normal ideas they've had. So yeah, I vote for Mass Effect 1. It is more or less fresh, yes.
As for Diablo and Terminator clones - spare me.

No need for such hostility. lol

As for Mass Effect 2, now that I have played all the way through it:

1. I expected way more from it
2. It was very short
3. While the story was ok, it wasn't as good as Mass Effect 1
4. Dragon Age: Origins had way more story, way more envolvment
5. The combat is OK
6. They made alot of Mass Effect 1 fans mad by forcing you to work for ceberus
7. They announced at launch, and during the game, that Mass Effect 3 would be coming out, and that they were already working on it.

Over all, good game, way less than I expected it to be.
Will I be buying from Bioware again? For the first time, I am on the fence.

The game could have been liquid gold, but by bioware standards, they milled out crap. At least compared to what they normally release.

Get Dragon Age: Origins instead.

Now that you've mentioned it, yes, the game is very short. Which makes me wonder why did they release it on 2 nearly filled DVD9. This doesn't tie up. Which, in its turn, leads me to an idea that half of the DLCs they still plan to release is probably within the game already, downloadable whatever will only enable it. Like textures, models, dialogues. Maybe entire scenarios. Can't see why else the game would weight so much. So right now, with other DLCs, maybe they are only doing a final touch, you know. Seems logical enough. It would reduce the weight of DLCs and explain why the game is such a two-disc hunk.

------------

I must have totally gone blind. Seeing exact same engine, exact same level of detail, exact same everything, people notice "improved graphics". Aside from the few shadows, nothing was improved. I definitely lack the ability of such wishful thinking. Then again, graphics is good.

No. ME1 was cooler than ME2 because it was groundbreaking.

Now we know what to expect, it's not so breathtaking.

That doesn't mean it's a bad or boring game, just not as mind-blowing as the original.

yeah, for me me1 is better than me2... kinda like the ending of me1 when the alliance fleet defend the citadel from saren... In me2's ending, they just had to kill almost half of the team to make it more dramatic... they didn't even involve an alliance fleet or a citadel fleet to destroy the collector's base, but still maybe we can see more of them in me3...

Agreed with others, your attitude towards others really stinks to be honest.

Dragon Age has a story, if you didnt press SPACE to often perhaps you may take the time to listen to dialogue etc.

Loghain allowed Cailan to die at Ostagar because he was asking for help from Orlais, who Loghain defended Ferelden against many years prior. He also felt King Cailan was too wrapped up in fantasy and glory hunting with the Wardens that he was weakening Ferelden.

The Blight was created by Tevinter mages who dabbled in blood magic to summon demons and other abominations, to the point the demons took over and slayed the blood mages and take control, in turn rebirthing the Archdemons (dragons).

Ahhh a Dragon that cant talk? Is that so difficult a thing to consider? Why, does all Dragons talk? Someone must slap the Square team in Japan when they created several Bahamut's for Final Fantasy that didnt talk, Bahamut being a Dragon.

Besides the Archdemons are not in control of the Blight, the corrupted and possessed Tevinter blood mages are, well the demons inside them are. And next expansion you get to see one controlling the Blight army in Ferelden and beyond.

Not to mention the game also opens up multiple story lines, on the Elves, The Dwarfs and the various places of Ferelden. And the story of Andraste.

So there is plenty of Storylines in the game, just have to find out the info for them and read all the entries in the journal when you find books etc. Pressing TAB helps find those things.

I already own DAO.

And I would hate a game, especially an RPG if it is short. So I am not getting this one. Thanks a bunch guys.
