Dragon Age 4 isn't the hype machine it once was, but an Origins remake could do a lot to stoke the flame of fandom for the series.
Nah. I'd rather them not tarnish the one truly stellar entry in the series with mounds of cosmetic dlc, and possibly negative changes to narrative and story elements to make it more woke.
Have you played the game recently? I played it a while back and was actually surpised how "woke" the game is. I think back when came out, no one cared if something was woke or not. It's only a recent trend. It had all the issues such as: racial tension, claiming "privilege", discrimination, classism, and sexual identity, among others. I do agree otherwise, and would rather see them create something original, and preferably single player.
@TheRealTedCruz, But of course I also get what you mean, in many narrative aspects the more recent BioWare games have been more "tame" and safe in comparison.
Perhaps you are forgetting that the creators are based in Edmonton, Canada. Canada being one of the most "woke" Nations on the planet, not surprised that the woeness in video games was early here.
I would argue that a great many things have contained those issues throughout all of human history. They're eternal themes present in most stories and fictional worlds. What separates modern Bioware games from the old is that they're propaganda (they don't raise questions but deliver answers) which serves an angry cult hell-bent on forcing through its desired changes to the world without question.
DAO, the only great game in the series.
They should remake Knights of the Old Republic, or atleast remaster it using a newer engine like the Dark Souls 1 remaster using the Dark Souls 3 engine. OMG could you imagine a Resident Evil 2 style remake for Knights of the Old republic. I'd faint....
Whatever they make, let it not be the usual EA service based game. Take the time, enrich the franchises' lore and polish it like the studio's future depends on it. Actually EA should make use of Star Wars High Republic license and let them develop the RPG game. Or overhaul Anthem and introduce a single-player campaign in it?
Forget Dragon Age 4 for now. I am still waiting for Anthem 2.0 (revamped). Seriously. Anthem has a lot of potential and there is no way Bioware should or would pass it away. For me personally, I have almost 600 hours in it, so I'd love to see it getting better. I have a lot of fun playing it.
600 hours for a game that has "potential"? Then how much time do you spend on actual great games??
It is absolutely weird that cashgrabbers like EA leave money on the table by refusing to do remasters of this game or the Mass Effect trilogy.
And dead space!
I would love to see a proper remaster of the original. Even 2. 3? Eh. Wasn't bad; wasn't great.
Agreed. I only want the first really lol. One of my all time favorites. I never finished 2 and never played 3.
How would you monetise a remaster/remake? One-time payment is not enough for those guys.
Forget about Bioware, they truly moulded into EA now and I don't think they can ever recover.
And all the senior creative talent jumped ship since the acquisition. So you get this combo hit of horrible mismanagement AND lack of visionary talent able to mitigate the publishers bad decisions.
I’d rather the mass effect trilogy remaster.
I'd rather they just make a new dragon age 4. origins was good and doesn't need to be remade.
Omfg what's with people work remakes? Rather have a new game than play a recycled game
Yeah. A remake shouldn't happen unless the series is finished. Like when they remade Shadows of the Colossus. Or if it doesn't effect working on new entries, like Resident Evil.
Super yes to this. Dragon Age Origin Remake would be great. Anyway, I don’t trust Bioware with the newer DA titles as those games would likely be filled with MTs.
Remade? Why? Remaster it if you want, but the game still holds up
Wouldn't be the same Bioware most of the original people left and now you're stuck with a new team who couldn't even get ME Andromeda right and Anthem is a whole different story.
What the hell? Now people are begging for remakes? Lol.
I just beat the game 150 hours and idk this game is severely overrated.
