The first Dragon Age could be difficult if you weren't familiar with party-based RPG tactics and Mike Laidlaw says he fixed that in the sequel.

Boo hoo. so the game was a little hard. Seriously? I found the game incredibly easy once you learned to set tactics. But getting rid of the squad fighting and making it a hack and slash isn't making the game easier. It's DESTROYING THE GAME.

casual treatment :(

Boo hoo set it to hard and move on.

Some people look for any excuse to bash and cry.

More options is a good thing, jjust like being able to toggle auto attack.

I had DA:O set to the hardest difficulty available and still found it easy. So if DA2 is going to be even easier than setting it to hard isn't going to solve the problem.

Agreed, and I really hate this gens excuse. Well we wanted to appeal to people unfamiliar to the genre.

They have been doing that this whole gen, when are they going to show those newcomers what a true RPG is?

"Insane difficulty" is for the adults now!! :)

to bad some gamers are out of options hope Skryim delivers for them!! & me!!

All that swinging and dodging. Yet another button mashing action title, with no party based strategy, that is aimed at the fps crowd.

I am talking about oblivion and skyrim. ;-)

Isn't that what difficulty settings are for...if you can't play a game on the easiest setting, just give it up.

Games are supposed to have SOME kind of challenge. Mario didn't have difficulty settings, either you could play it or you couldn't. Maybe if people actually TRIED something different they would figure out how games work.

It's sad when you can't just spray-n-play isn't COD kiddies :(

yep the casual generation are ruining games

evrfighter2784d ago

It's the casual gamers that dominate console gaming.

So you could say. Console gamers are ruining gaming.

atticus142784d ago

yeah eventually everything is going to merge into an fps with lite rpg elements, till the next generation gets even more dumb, then video games will all be controlled with one button and 90% cutscenes.

Apotheosize2784d ago

Just more nails in the coffin, shittier dialogue system, one race, visuals are the same boring mess, less content and completion time, day one dlc everywhere, and the games easier to boot

Well theres always The Witcher 2

Simon_Brezhnev2784d ago

lol true Witcher 2 will be better.

Cheetos2784d ago

why dragon age 2 is easier than origins? So casual players will buy it and it will sell more, doesn't take a genius to figure that out.
