Patrick Talbert from Platform Nation reviews Dragon Age: Origins:
'Thedas. The country of Ferelden. You choose how your journey begins: Human Noble? Human or Elven Mage? Dwarven Noble or Commoner? City or Dalish Elf? The choice is in your hands. Also in your hands, once you complete your 'Origin' story and are recruited into the Grey Wardens by Duncan, is the coming Blight. The darkspawn have once again ventured from the depths of Thedas to lay siege to your land. This Blight looks to be the worst yet, and the only person able to stop this walking pestilence from ripping your world to shreds is you. That's right: YOU.'
