Released in December of 2009, Dragon Age: Origins is a dark fantasy RPG created by BioWare as the spiritual successor to their famous Baldur’s Gate series. By creating their own original world and rules system for the game, BioWare was able to break entirely new ground, telling the story exactly as they wish and in the manner they feel gives the best effect.
There is no doubt about the success of this approach! DA:O has received some of the highest aggregate review scores of any RPG on any platform. It also received numerous top honors including IGN’s “PC Game of the Year (2009)” and the Academy of Interactive Arts & Science’s “Role-Playing/Massively Multiplayer Game of the Year 2009”.
