In a land far away, or possibly in a dimension just next to us, lies the lands of Thedas. The world of Thedas is made up by endless possibilities - a man can be a mage, a rogue, a warrior, even a woman. From the Free Marches to Ferelden we find champions and heroes saving the world... poorly.
I would never suggest that the aliens are, perhaps, complete morons, but at times when playing ME1… Well, I marveled that they ever managed to invent space travel.
Wrex was absolutely unplayable, as he was huge and would without fail take the space right where I was taking cover. When he would inevitably die from not taking cover he’d be too big a corpse to properly see around too. Let’s just say he wasn’t my favorite.
Garrus’s habit of getting stuck behind doors is well documented (pressing buttons is a difficult concept, ok?) but I’m not sure how many had Tali angrily leaving cover to shoot people in the face in full view. It happened with Jack once in ME2 too, to be fair.
Liara left Ashley and Shepard once to deal with a long area on their own, because a corner at the start of the area was too difficult to leave behind. And I can’t bring her to places with pillars, at all. They’re her best friends.
Strangely enough, Kaidan and Ashley never exhibited these kinds of problems when I played with them.
And the presentations continue, this time with Dorian Pavus. Who has admittedly had some reveals about his character, but we here and Champions and Heroes choose to present these characters in ways the creators haven’t even considered! Gasp!
Mr Dorian McFancy Beard aka The Moustache Mage, the single wielder of this school of magic in all of Thedas. Marvel at his skill, marvel at those beards. Just marvel.
Dragon Age Origins had statistics where you could see how many humans, darkspawn, etc you had killed. The number of humans I had killed were as good as always greater than the number of darkspawn (it shifted towards the end of the game though). Essentially, my Warden would have done Thedas a greater service if they set those humans out to fight the darkspawn, even if they only killed on each before dying.
Hawke and the crew… fight even less darkspawn. Frankly, they’re likely the most prolific band of serial killers that Kirkwall has seen since the days under Tevinter rule.
