Dragon Age II

More

Is anyone playing? Apparently there's a split between the critics and the lay gamers. What I read didn't seem particularly appealing to me. I'm a really old-school D&D, Gold Box, Caves of Chaos, House of Amber dude. (Yeah, I know. Lotta schools in there.) I liked the first Dragon Age, but at some point, I felt like I was just killing x numbers of mobs to x place. I wanted to feel more in control of the narrative, and my character. I'm also not a fan of the linear.


This is the place where table-top beats PC/console. I don't know how you program that open human element. I'm thinking about running Neverwinter Nights with my son, because it just takes too long to set up a good table-top game. And yet "long" is kind of what I liked about D&D.
