I was sceptical for the longest time, but in my heart, I always held out hope. I knew that there was a chance that this game would be great. I still believed in BioWare. I'm very excited to hear that my faith was, seemingly, justified.
Dragon Age: Origins is one of the five greatest games I have ever played in my life. I love the world of Ferelden and the old-school CRPG game design, and if they have indeed returned to what made DA:O so great, as well as learning the lessons that needed to be learned from the debacle that was DAII, then this will almost certainly be my GOTY. I'm so ready for an epic RPG to consume my spare time for weeks to come.
