Gerald V: "BioWare's E3 lineup knocked our socks off this year: Star Wars: The Old Republic and Mass Effect 2 both made incredibly impressive showings, but Dragon Age Origins is a game that gets the role-playing gamer in me giddy with anticipation. It's a return to BioWare's roots, the spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate. It's a way for BioWare to tell new stories in the fantasy milieu without being limited by the established history and mechanics of Dungeons & Dragons. It's being called an epic tale of violence, lust, and betrayal. It just so happens that my E3 demo covered all three of these aspects of the game."
