Default Dragon Age as a Spiritual Successor to Baldur's Gate

November 3rd, 2010, 22:49
The subject suggests a long essay, and perhaps it warrants this, but I'm taking time that I was using to play Dragon Ago to write this. Maybe some other time.

I remembered that there were people that were angry about the whole "Dragon Age being a spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate" claim. I've been playing it for about 30 hours now, I guess, with three different characters. I don't understand the anger. I think Dragon Age is probably better than Baldur's Gate! You don't have world freedom, but there is plenty to discover, decisions to make, intricate inter-party relationships, tons of items, a good story and real role-playing opportunities! So what's the problem? Tactical gameplay? I think there's enough in Dragon Age, and maybe too much in Baldur's Gate. In any case, I think Dragon Age is a pretty damn good spiritual successor.

And I'm playing this on Xbox 360, even.
