Um, you missed an option. 12%

I'd personally be excited to buy it. I bought Origins on PC around its release, but didn't go through it until a few weeks prior to two; I played through all three demo versions of two, and enjoyed it, but when two came out, I didn't pick it up for multiple reasons. The PC I played Origins on, and two's demo, stopped working, so even though little choice carries over making it negligible (or so I've heard), that made it hard for me to want to play it on consoles.

I also didn't like the fact it wasn't the original character, though I could get over that. Then came all the negative talk about the game, and how the setting varies very little, which for me is a huge turn off unless what little is there is fantastic. All that being said, I do still want to play it, because three is coming, but I don't really want to go back to last-gen consoles, for a game I had put off for this long, and still to an extent have reservations about.

The problem is this kind of thing would be ideal to come out before three, though I doubt that'll happen.

I liked my time with DA1 and DA2 and their DLC, but I wouldn't go through playing them again. I've already played them twice (three times for DA1) and I feel like that's enough.

#2 Posted by wemibelec90 (1658 posts) -

I have no interest in playing DA:O on a console. PC or bust. I just want a direct sequel (in terms of mechanics and style) to the original, not another DAII.

#3 Edited by HH (609 posts) -

I've finished Origins with a duelist and a templar, and i've every intention of going back and doing a blood mage playthrough, likewise for DA 2 - two down and at least one to go.

I'm going to get a PS4 for Inquisition, but I might get a copy for the 360 at some point, to see how my actual import saves pan out (no way I'll remember all my decisions), and as a way to revisit those old characters.

#4 Posted by believer258 (11897 posts) -

I haven't even finished the copy that I own. Unless there are drastic changes to make some parts of the game less tedious, then I seriously doubt it.

#5 Posted by TheManWithNoPlan (5479 posts) -

Definitely. I've never played any of the Dragon Age games, and having them in one nice package on my Ps4 would probably push me over the edge to finally play them.

#6 Posted by Steadying (1192 posts) -

I've already beaten them and yeah, definitely. I mean, assuming it came out on PC and they actually redid the graphics. Origins doesn't look good for a last gen game, let alone a current gen one. I've actually been in the mood to play through Origins again lately.

You can't enable the console on a console, so no. :D

I don't care about Dragon Age, so... No? I'm here though!

Bioware is stinky.

#9 Posted by Devil240Z (3351 posts) -

I don't even know what that means. dragon age tried and failed to catch my attention before. maybe if it had my wife hostage I might give it a chance. Not really sure what else to say about it.

#10 Edited by JadeGL (863 posts) -

The only way they could get me to do that is if they said that it would be their solution to importing the saves from Origins, Awakening and 2. Seriously, I want to import my saves. My husband reminded me that this wasn't going to happen for the third game and my heart sank a little bit. Now, you may think I'm being dramatic, but part of why I played the games and all the DLC was the fact I had my characters and their decisions could be carried over from one game to the next. I loved that when Alistair showed up in 2 he was mentioning his awesome wife (me from Origins + Awakenings) to my new character. That was dope.

So, if they said they were remaking all the other games for PS4 and that those saves would be able to be imported into the third game? Yeah I'd buy the crap out of that all day, every day. But, if it's just prettier graphics and slightly improved gameplay or something like that with no other benefits and no connections to the new game? Nah, I would have to pass since I already played those games, all the dlc, and am kind of done with them at this point.

I wouldn't care if this came out, but I wouldn't buy it either. I already have all the DLC I want for the first game (also modded the hell out of it too), so I don't really need this. Plus, I'm not going to play DA2 again.

Wow, really? They aren't letting you import saves to the third game? I guess they got really annoyed by everyone who killed Leliana in Dragon Age: Origins bitching about her being alive in the second game. Still, that's like Bioware's thing, and to see them not doing it is surprising. The Witcher pulled it off really well though, but I don't know if Dragon Age can pull it off without its over-dramatic fanbase creating a shit storm.

#12 Posted by ThunderSlash (1721 posts) -

@random45: I'm pretty sure that they are still giving you the option to import saves if you had played the games on PC. For the ones who can't, I heard that there will be some way to create your own world history from scratch. They are probably introducing this feature because of difficulties bringing over saves from last gen consoles.

#13 Edited by JadeGL (863 posts) -

@random45: Ah I just read that they are coming up with a system, but that it's not going to involve save states? I need to do some intense research on this. It sounds similar to what they did with Mass Effect but more intense. But it still isn't a save import from what I gather. Ok, now I feel a little better. Still I wish I could just do a straight save import.

It sounds cool from what I am reading, but it also sounds like they could be promising more than they might be able to deliver. Plus, how the heck can I remember everything I need to remember? Hmmm.

I would play through the first again, sure.

#15 Posted by Herk (191 posts) -

I'm good with having the original ones, but the new Dragon Age will probably be the game that makes me buy a PS4 if not Destiny comes out before that

#16 Edited by Danteveli (1184 posts) -

Nah

Finished Origins like 12 times and loved it. Dragon Age 2 - finished it once and it was enough. Won't play them again for some time but maybe one day I will go back to Origins.

#17 Edited by spraynardtatum (2943 posts) -

I played a portion of both games but I wouldn't get a enhanced version.

id play a hd remaster of the first game, fuck that 2nd game to all hell though.

#19 Posted by FriendlyPhoenix (404 posts) -

No, because I don't want to play these games with a controller.

#20 Posted by Nightriff (5075 posts) -

Yes because I'm stupid and constantly rebuy games all the time.

Nope, I don't want to play them with a controller.

#22 Edited by Hunter5024 (5669 posts) -

I would absolutely buy this. Dragon Age: Origins is one of my favorite games.

#23 Posted by Veektarius (4817 posts) -

DA:O is overrated (the gameplay was fun but the story and characters were weak) while DA2 is only slightly underrated (Terrible environments and mediocre story were somewhat offset by a number of good characters and interesting but too-repetitive/frequent/insufficiently challenging combat). A graphics upgrade wouldn't really increase my interest in revisiting either one, and the DLC wasn't outstanding in either case.

#24 Posted by Yummylee (21615 posts) -

Sure... maybe. I've put in an ungodly amount of hours into Dragon Age: Origins already, but it's also been long enough that I'd be OK in buying it again for PS4. Preferably on its own, though...

#25 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11722 posts) -

I played the console versions of both of those games back before I had a real PC, and I don't think I could go back. Also no amount of HD-ifying would make the art design in Origins any less bland and the environment design in II any less repetitive.

#26 Posted by amir90 (2156 posts) -

Played DA:O a lot, love that game. Barely finished DA II, not that excited for number 3.
So no, I wouldn't buy another version of it.

#27 Edited by UltorOscariot (198 posts) -

The first game? Sure. I'd play that game again with some prettied up visuals in a moment. The second? Nah. Outside of some interesting moments involving character agency I found very little to like about that game. Kirkwall felt more like a prison than a city.

#28 Posted by Cerberus3Dog (336 posts) -

Weird coincidence, I'm playing DA:O Ultimate Edition right now on PC to get ready for DA:Inquisition. I played it once when it came out back in '09. I am still floored by the amount of original voice work in DA:O, the size of their add-ons, and the quality of the entire package. Especially since I bought the Ultimate Edition for like $25. But actually I probably wouldn't buy it again if it came out on new systems.

#29 Posted by Vessel28 (113 posts) -

I don't think I would seeing as DA:O already has the ultimate edition and I don't really care for DA2. However, I would love to have something like that for the Mass Effect series, getting all the games and their DLC for that series is currently a massive hassle.

#30 Posted by NTM (7377 posts) -
#31 Edited by NTM (7377 posts) -

@vessel28: Yes, and I hope it's coming; I assume it's coming. Bioware is talking about it. While I'd settle for just the three games as they are just with visual updates and more solid frame rates (60), I'd rather they take a whole 'nother step and made all three games look and play the same as if it were on large game, with all DLC (and yes, still 60fps!)

#32 Posted by adam1808 (1494 posts) -

Ask me in 5 years when I'm no longer sour about the DA2, The Old Republic and ME3 hat-trick of disappointment that BioWare assaulted us with in 2011-12.

#33 Edited by conmulligan (482 posts) -

I'd relish the chance to play through those games again in a nicer looking package.

@wemibelec90: If it came to PC as well?

Eh, doubtful? The original versions still look fine on PC. Could they look better? Definitely. The graphics aren't what I care about though, so it wouldn't be worth it.

#35 Posted by AndrewB (7611 posts) -

In fact it won't happen, since their solution for "importing saves" will be a form you fill out on their website to attach to your account. As for the re-release, I have no stake in that as I played the PC versions, and the only thing I really missed out on were small and insignificant pieces of DLC. I bought all the ones I thought were worth it. The only reason I might play through again (but realistically don't have the time) is because it's been so long since I played some of the side Origins content that I'm sure I might miss some references that will show up in 3.

#36 Posted by TobbRobb (4639 posts) -

Meh. Bioware games don't do anything for me anymore. Even the old classics (and DA:O for that matter!) that I used to love just has something missing. I grew out of their style of storytelling and the games largely don't have the mechanics to make up for it. :(

#37 Posted by jamesyfx (69 posts) -

I wish I could play the PC version of Dragon Age, but all the DLC I bought in the past doesn't seem to be on their servers anymore. In fact, I don't think their servers are there at all. I kinda get the feeling they've abandoned that game for now.

I've not looked at the game for a few months though.. so things may have changed.
