It took Tom twelve years to try this sequel.
The Xbox Game Pass “Surprise Me” button has made some interesting choices in the past, but the random selection of this action RPG developed by BioWare shall prove to be a decisive one. Tom played Dragon Age: Origins and its expansion (Awakening) back when they launched in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Then BioWare dropped this sequel just sixteen months after the original had hit store shelves. With such a short development cycle, could they possibly capture the same magic it had taken them five whole years to harness for the first game? Some thought they had, but many fans felt that the sequel was a tragic example of a cash-in. This would lead Tom to avoid this sequel at first and, without a strong recommendation from any of his friends, he simply moved on to other franchises. Over a decade later, the “Surprise Me” button has decided Tom should give this game another chance. Will he regret not playing it ages ago? How about Chris, who has never played any of the Dragon Age titles? Will freedom from any nostalgia prove positive or negative for his experience? Our hosts have played the required hour, but will they still want to fight darkspawn when the time is up?
