Dragon Age Origins is a really good game overall with the graphics only being my one real complaint. They were decent not great.  Am a latecomer to this game and I bought the ultimate edition with all the DLC. As I played the game I was strongly reminded of the original Kotor from the compelling story to having to pick text responses in conversation. The combat system is good allowing easy pause and play or just play without pause. Without a doubt this is one of the best stories in a video game to date. The origin stories are great allowing six different beginning stories for your hero. They will affect the story in quite a few ways too. Through various twists and decisions made in the game you really do have the ability to create a story where the effects of your decisions on the world are clear. The ending ties everything together well. The writing is great. This is definitely a must have game.
