I might quit this game at some point but I can't see myself quitting because of another game until Destiny drops (9/9). That's not to say that i will like Destiny, I guess I'll find out during the beta this summer, but it's a game I've been looking forward to and I really hope Bungie can deliver.

Small disclaimer for a potential surprise drop of H2A. I would jump straight to that if multiplayer was a copy of the original. God how I've missed Halo nights with the gang.

You're in for such a treat, horrorfaneightys!
The Dragon Age and Mass Effect games are some of the best RPGs out there (much better than SWTOR in fact when it comes to storylines since their design never had to worry about timesinks to keep people subbed).
Thanks for showing us you listen to our feedback, Bioware!

There, the mass exodus will rather be towards D:OS, The Witcher 3 or even Eschalon Book III or some other promising Indie developer.
DA2 is the black sheep of the Bioware games family.

DA:O was one of my greatest gaming experiences of all time.

DA:I isn't even on my radar. Zero interest.

The reason is DA2. In a story-based series, I'm not going to skip a game and then try to piece together everything I missed - and I'm not going to play DA2. So that franchise is dead to me. An action-based series can afford to have an abysmally weak entry...but a story-based series, not so much. At least for me.

It doesn't help that the Dragon Age universe really has no appeal to me. It's very well realized, but not my thing. (Which makes it all the more impressive that DA:O captivated me so much, in spite of the IP rather than because of it.)

But, never say never. I'm planning to unsubscribe from this game shortly due to the bugs. I haven't even completed chapter one of any of the stories yet, but...I can't stand continuing to give money to a game with so many bugs that don't get fixed.

So who knows, maybe with nothing else to play I'll resort to DA2 after all.

I'm really looking forward to trying them. One of the most important things for me is story.

I know there are 3 parts (On the PC version. Not sure about the console versions) that your character , mobs and your companions turn into black blobs. You literally have to go into the code and add in something for it to work.

Have you tried DA2?
Sure, it's not as great as DA:O, but it's still decent enough as far as RPGs go.
And besides; every DA game is a stand-alone story. Sure you may hear something about one of the previous heroes and even run into some companions from DA:O or other NPCs, but the only thing they have in common storywise is that they are set in the same world - and in the same time period (more or less) for all the current games.

If you haven't tried it, don't just take someone's word on it - according to the vast hordes of the internet SWTOR is just about the worst game ever made, and the devs that made it are devilworshippers given how they are working for the Evil EA.
Yet I take it you're enjoying SWTOR since you're posting here.

They are really good games. ME1 especially is probably my favorite Bioware game.

I am actually kind of excited about DA:I. It seems like Bioware is moving out of their comfort zone with it and trying something new to them... We'll see.

Yes...well...except for the "you ARE" part. If switch that to "you were" or "you hopefully will be," then yes. I haven't played SWTOR for months, not least of all because of certain bugs.

Apparently I'm more sensitive to some things than most, but there are things that just make a game not worth playing to me....for example, at the moment I'm greatly enjoying Mass Effect 3. But as much as I'm enjoying it, I never would have played it at all if it weren't for the fan-made fix for ME1/2 custom faces (highly recommended if you're playing ME3 with an imported character):

(Don't let the long tutorial intimidate you...once you get everything together, it's really pretty much a one-click process.)
