Default Hmm, Dragon Age: Origins might have a chance of being good after all...

Impressions are solid, at least.

Some previews of the GDC demo...

Why was there doubt to begin with?

Well, between NWN and KotOR and Jade Empire and Mass Effect and the console ports of the game and the Lord of the Rings clone trailer we saw a while back, yes, there definitely was. I'm still definitely not expecting another Baldur's Gate II (for one thing, Bioware has said that they'll never make another game that long again), but if we're lucky, Neverwinter Nights 2 and its expansions will have some real competition...

KotOR was awesome, Jade Empire was fun at times with some great enviroments, and Mass Effects was ZOMG awesome. So...not seeing your point here.

KotOR was okay but disappointing and had simplistic combat, Jade Empire and Mass Effect are basically action-RPGs. Bioware hasn't made a serious strategic RPG since BGII:ToB. I'm pleasantly surprised to hear that this one sounds like it will indeed be one... I was definitely skeptical for all the reasons I listed before.

Alright, now I'm hopeful for it again, storyline-wise at least.

Really good interview with David Gaider...
