i havent been able to play it more then an hour at a time before getting bored. Who else feels this way? no one i kno has played it.

#2 Posted by Cows_R_Crunk (35 posts) -

Are there other fantasy RPGs that you like? Maybe you just don't like that type of game in general. That being said, I love Origins.

Why do you get bored? Why not provide examples instead of just saying " IT sucks" 
#4 Posted by Underachiever007 (2468 posts) -

Perhaps it's just not to your taste?

#5 Posted by PenguinDust (12519 posts) -

I love Origins, too but perhaps you need more active games.  Have you tried Elder Scrolls Oblivion?  Then again, that's a very open world game and can leave you wondering what to do next.  Maybe you should try The Witcher.

Im going to go by your profile picture and say its probably not your style, if it isn't clicking with you don't bother with it, just move on to something else.

Was there a point to this post (other than bitching and flamebaiting)?


You don't like it?  Here's the world's smallest violin playing the world's saddest song just for you.  Get over it.  Also, the game is a year and a half old by now.  If you couldn't figure out whether or not you'd like it in that time, well...

i usually play shooter war types so i was testing outside what i usually play... recommendations would be great.

#10 Posted by dancinginfernal (474 posts) -

Considering what you're coming from, I'd start with The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion as stated above. It's graphics are a bit dated but nothing too unbearable. It's fairly basic in terms of gameplay elements and is a great RPG.


If you still want shooting, Mass Effect (the first) masterfully balances shooting and RPG mechanics. Just a note, you start out totally uneducated in using any guns so don't expect to gun down everything like nothing.
#11 Posted by Buscemi (1106 posts) -
@dilllweeddude: Wow, classy. Most of the people I know loved the game and I'd say it's twice the game its sequel is. Then again, maybe that's more to your liking, considering it's a little bit more action-oriented.
#12 Posted by Cows_R_Crunk (35 posts) -

I second the recommendation for Mass Effect. Just be ready to listen to lots of conversations.

I think Mass Effect might be a better fit for you. It plays pretty much like a third-person shooter with a choice-based storytelling structure similar to DA:O's latched on top. Unless you've already played it? 

EDIT: You might enjoy Fallout 3 and/or Fallout: New Vegas as well, if you're willing to look past all their technical deficiencies.
#14 Posted by Aronman789 (2676 posts) -

I'd say go Mass Effect.

#19 Posted by TheMustacheHero (6655 posts) -

I agree with you OP. I love RPGs and I love Bioware...but Dragon Age Origins is boring as crap. 


Mainly for me it's the gameplay and artstyle. Everyone is way outta proportion.

HEY DUDE, HOW ABOUT YOU GO PLAY CALL OF DUTY, I BET THAT'S RIGHT UP YOUR STREET.

#21 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7241 posts) -
@dilllweeddude: How did Fallout scare you that much? It can be very creepy at times if you go into the wrong places (DO NOT GO IN THAT SCHOOL I AM TELLING YOU, DON'T DO IT) but if you stick to the main story it shouldn't be too bad. Also, this is coming from someone who couldn't handle playing more than 30 minutes of Dead Space and couldn't handle Bioshock. If I can do it, anyone can.
#22 Posted by behelit (7 posts) -

Sorry brah, but if you're into Bro Ops you don't have the mental capacity to play awesome rpgs.  It's not a bash either - it's just the truth.  Try another mindless FPS.

Oh and here is a handy tip, keep spamming the VATS button! Seriously, if you do it once in while you can make sure nothing comes up and scares you.

I thought Fallout 3 was more depressing than scary, those grays would get to me sometimes.  
#25 Posted by Tobli (149 posts) -

DA:O is a bit intense for someone who isn't already into the genre i guess.

all first person shooters are essentially a point and click adventure... just more reflexes less thinking.

Vats sucked in Fallout New Vegas.

I don't exactly trust people with "weed" in their names.

But really, try Mass Effect.

#32 Posted by boneykingofnowhere (19 posts) -

I'm not hardcore into RPG's. I enjoyed the original but it didn't manage to hold my interest long enough for me to finish it. I liked the sequel better. Gameplay was a little more involved and the story was 10 times more interesting.

Its not pointless at all. 
#36 Edited by PenguinDust (12519 posts) -

Ease up folks, no need to get nasty.


In addition to the two I already suggested and the above mentioned Fallout and Mass Effect games, you might want to look at Borderlands and Deus Ex.  For the latter, you might want to wait for the newest sequel later this year since the original, while great, has some very dated graphics.  Another possibility is something more "Zelda-like" such as Nier or Darksiders.  Finally there is the loot-whore games like Diablo 2, Titanquest, Torchlight and Sacred 2

Yay, you have one person who agrees with you.  YOU ARE NOW FULFILLED.

VATS is the game mechanic in Fallout 3 and New Vegas which pauses the game and lets you aim for certain parts of the enemies button. By pressing it VATS will lock onto the nearest enemy is there is once so it helps out with not knowing what is close by. But I agree with @Skytylz: it is a very sad game. You know, come to think of it, Fallout 3 did scare me a lot but I still finished it because I loved it so much.. (one of my favourite games ever)

Anyway try out these more ''action'' focused RPGs you might enjoy -

Dragon Age 2 (A lot more action focused than this)


Have Fun!

Haven't played New Vegas yet (still have it boxed up) but I don't get the hate on New Vegas, isn't it more Fallout 3? (and yes, that is a good thing)

@dilllweeddude:  If your interested in RPGs and you own a DS the only serious answer is pokemon. It is barebones in the story department and introduces you to a lot of really basic fundamental rpg ideas. Or if you don't have a DS get costume quest.

If you don't want a traditional style rpg and want more action in your life, go for a Fable game. Fable two being the best I would start there.
#41 Posted by oysteinBrenne (284 posts) -
@dilllweeddude:  Judging by your picture you seem to be a casual console gamer.
I would recomend you stick to call of duty. If you really want to play another gener maby try out world of warcraft or farmville that might be more suited for you.

I thought BlOps was enjoyable, yet Planescape: Torment is one of my favorite games. 

Not all FPS fans are dudebros and preteens.

And you guys like to think you're not the same as every other internet community out there. You're just as much a bunch of cunts as anyone else.


Someone who hasn't got a huge amount of exposure to games wants to expand and try out some other shit, and you tell them to fuck off and play CoD because they're too stupid to play anything else. Nice one.

(Not everyone in this topic has done that. Kudos to those that didn't)
#44 Posted by oysteinBrenne (284 posts) -
@ShaggE: that is true but mr weed dude here is just another casual cod gamer that only wants heavly scripted action games and does not like to read or listen to alot of story or cutscenes

@oysteinBrenne:  i dont mind light reading but if reading outweighs the action then tht makes it boring.

So why not try and help to open their eyes to games that may bridge that gap and introduce them to different areas of gaming? They already said they played through Dead Space 2. That's a start.
Looking at the achievements, they've also played a decent amount of:
Assassin's Creed
Fable II
Red Dead Redemption

So before you make your stupid fucking assumptions, get a clue. You want people to enjoy the games that you do? Being a complete fuckwit to anybody who doesn't fit in your little 'elite' group isn't the way to do it.

 (Not you specifically.. the gaming community as a whole)

i dont play video games to read.... thats what books are for and i read books i just wanted to clear that up for the douches who like to think that if you enjoy reading in video games that makes you intelligent. it doesnt.

#48 Posted by BraveToaster (12589 posts) -

I doubt that arguing amongst yourselves is going to help the OP "see the light". 


What are you looking for in a game? Is the story just as important as the action?
#49 Posted by SSully (4188 posts) -

I personally had to stop playing it because it just felt very stiff and archaic compared to other games released at the time. Keep in mind I tried 3 seperate files and put about 10 hours into each, and ended up getting bored with each. 


I think the silent protagonist was a big deal to me. I am used to it in games like Oblivion because you dont see your character standing there like an idiot not saying anything, you can imagine your character speaking the response as you are reading them, in dragon age it just dreadfully dull.
Also I never felt me, or any of my party members were the powerful people they were said to be. The animations when fighting were obviously dated for the time, and it took a lot away from the experience for me. It sucks because I wanted to get into the game, but it just wouldn't work for me. Maybe when I finish dragon age 2 I will be able too, because right now I am finding DA2 to be a much  better game, even though the story telling is a bit on the weak side. Gameplay wise it is leagues above origins. 
#50 Posted by ShaggE (6456 posts) -
@oysteinBrenne: Then show him why he should care. I started out hating RPGs because the community was so elitist. (a stupid way to judge a genre, but hey, I was a kid)

 It wasn't until much later that I gave one a solid try, and I loved it. 

But maybe it's just not his thing, you know? There's nothing wrong with being casual. I do cringe at him saying "pointless conversations", but the idea of playing a game that doesn't involve user interaction beyond dialog trees *is* kind of weird, if you look at it from an outsider's point of view.
