Dragon Age: Origins had a lot going for it. It was the spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate. It had a huge epic story that featured one of the best dark fantasy worlds seen in video games. The Blight was a serious force and evoked so much emotion out of the player. You weren’t really changing the world as much as just trying to keep it alive.
Less than 18 months later though and Dragon Age 2 is here. After the huge post launch support Dragon Age: Origins had, many people feared that this game was just a cash-in on Bioware’s newest franchise. Has Bioware made this a game for the ages or should it have remained at its origins?
