It's true until Witcher 2 comes out.


The first Witcher was and still is head and shoulders above Origins and from the looks of it Witcher 2 will once again be the better RPG.

Don't get me wrong, I loved Dragon Age. It was a good game and a good RPG. Bioware makes some of the finest RPGs in the business and I've been playing Bioware games since Baldur's Gate and after that Neverwinter Nights. It's just that Witcher was a much, much better game.

DA was my first Bio game and man oh man was I disappointed.

Combat was very lame and weak. Max level 20, enemies did not respawn. The whole rogue class was broken and not working right. No point in going back to past places, no exploration. Everything so linear. I was finding level 5 loot during the last parts of the game. Graphics where very poor. Game felt so rushed. bio is working on to many things at once and it shows.

Unless this game has DRASTICALLY changed I doubt it will even crack top 5.

best rpg this gen is a tie between the witcher and demon souls

Edit: and lol at Skyrim don't even get me started on oblivion.

RPGS Im looking forward to.

Dark Souls

Same DA was my 1st Bioware game and 1st WRPG I was pretty disappointed. I played the Witcher and its up there as my top 3 rpgs of all time.

Darkfocus2821d ago

I'll decide when I play it but I'm very doubtful...

FrankenLife2821d ago

The decade just started. Saying such a thing now just makes these people look foolish. The game could be great, but there is still a lot of games to come out in the coming years.

jarrod19812821d ago

thats what i was gonna say. kinda early in the decade to be saying greatest. hopefully someone can improve in the next 9 years.

And not reading the review and commenting on it makes you seem foolish. Here's what he says -

"The best RPG of the decade? Nine more years will tell, but for now, yes."

Please do not over hype the game. I don't even want to read a preview. I like Biowares games (Never played a bad one), so getting this on any other RPG from them on 360 is automatic for me.

@BakedGoods: The headline says "RPG of the decade." That is sujective hype, and a guys opinion.

Did you read what I wrote? "I don't even want to read a preview." I will read a few reviews after I play a significant parts of the game for myself. I do not buy many game based on reviews, especially game I am some what familiar with. I don't trust other opinions over my own.


BakedGoods2821d ago

Did you read it? It's a review.

Ducky2821d ago (Edited 2821d ago )

Yea, that was kind of an odd statement since we're just like two~three months into a new decade...

JoshuaN4G2821d ago

It's been a year actually.

Ducky2821d ago (Edited 2821d ago )

^ Full decades go from the 1 to 10 (i.e. 1991-2000, 2001-2010, 2011-2020)

So we just entered a decade.
Though I guess it is generally taken as the year 0 to 9. Oh well, the decade is still relatively fresh... so still is odd for someone to call it the best RPG of the decade.

The decade started at 1st Jan 2010. Check it anywhere on the internet.

But yes, still bold.

mn212821d ago

i know some people will nag about the faster combat, but i feel like it'll be much more satisfying than in origins. from the demo gameplay i've seen, it still looks like a dragon age game, only no awkward delay in attacks.

i can't wait to try out the demo tomorrow

Theo11302821d ago

Does anyone know how the demo is going to be distributed, via steam or direct download through EA or Big Download?

Based on Mass Effect 2, Bioware doesn't make rpgs anymore.
