It's no surprise it did so well, although when I first saw it I wasn't convinced

I knew it was going to be a great game, but I did genuinely think it'd be a niche thing. I mean, hardcore RPGs are by definition "hardcore"...

Really happy it's got the attention it has, though. It deserves it.

Yeah, that was strange.

Especially since it is formed and fit to emulate classic PC RPGs. I honestly thought it would pass pretty far under the radar lacking an attractive element to non-RPGers like ME's 3PS combat. But strangely enough...

They have to keep the franchise going for a bit, I'd hope (beyond spin-off expansions). I definitely want to see a bigger, badder, more malleable DA:O 2 sometime in the future.

This came a bit as a shock to me. I remember just hearing of it, seeing ads, but never thought it would be so enthralling.

Its a great game so it caught on eventually.The most surprising find was the Hot Topic Dragon Age T-shirts

I liked the game more than most WRPGs, but its really bad ported to consoles
