Which would you have preferred - Dragon Age: Awakening (+1 year of dev. time) or Dragon Age II?
This is a serious question. Everyone knows that DA 2 is, at the very least, a controversial sequel. I'm genuinely curious to see if most gamers would have preferred Awakenings with all of the polish, manpower, and probable add-ons and quests that an extra year of development time would afford over the sequel we just got. So, what say you, Giant Bomb?
" @Crixaliz said:They'd also presumably have more people working on it, since they wouldn't have people working on DA2." Awakening was kinda shitty "@DeeGee said:" Awakening was all sorts of shitty. "The idea is that it wouldn't be shitty if it had an extra year of development. "
Awakening with another year of development to flesh out the characters would have been better. What little story it had, had far more potential then DA2 or even DAO. I like that people think they're defending Bioware by shitting on a better product because the newer product just came out. Yeah, that'll show em. Let's shit on Awakening so they don't make the mistake of thinking DA players want an interesting story.
Let's put it this way. When I bought my copy of Awakening the cashier at gamestop looked me in the eyes and said "this game is broken". I laughed it off, but when I got home and my warden was imported without any clothing or weapons I had to agree with him. I think you'd need to give them 5 years to work out the jank in that game, but for the polls sake I voted for awakening.
Dragon Age II. Despite everything people have said, it's still one of my favorite games of the year. It was a bold decision story wise, and even though it had flaws like repeated environments, it finally stepped away from epic save the world cliches that everyone got onto Dragon Age Origins for. And then people complained that Dragon Age II wasn't "epic" like DA:O. Ugh.
I didn't hate Dragon Age 2. Hell, I'd say that I mostly enjoyed it. To be honest, I wasn't crazy about Origins, but that may have had more to do with the scope of the game and the fact that I didn't have much free time when I played it. So, I guess I'd stick with Dragon Age 2. Though I would really like to see them hit it out of the park with the next one, we all know they have it in them.
