felis_ultharus: The Pardoner from the Canterbury Tales (Default)
I've been wanting to review the game Dragon Age: Origins for awhile, now. It deserves a review. Every time I start, though, it gets too long. I've pared it down here, and it's still long.

Overall - no spoilers )

Still, there are a few elements dear to my heart that deserve a closer look. The review is long - really an essay - and very spoilerful under the cut. Don't read it if you're planning on playing but haven't beaten it yet.

The Bad, the Good, and the Strange - Homosexuality, Wicca, and Canada in Dragon Age )

As I said, almost an essay. Sorry about that, but the game hit a lot of nerves, both good and bad.

And unlike the novels I read and review, it's safe to say very few people are looking at games that closely. Which is a shame, because there are more and more games out there deserving of a closer look.
