BTW I gather you have the Exiled Prince DLC since you have Sebastian? I bought that one when I got the game on release day. Point is that's the only DLC I know of for now.

Anyway the ending is epic. Good game, despite the changes.
i do have exiled prince, nice little addition. it would be nice to have more dungeons, different areas, more weapons and armor sets for everyone not just hawke. something like awakening but longer, much much longer and with good plot

The game is not short at all i must say and i have no idea how most of the people finished DA2 so quickly maybe most of them skipped or missed side/companions quests etc. or they play game all day and night without breaks. Everytime i choose different companions i get new quests Got dozens of quests from Boards, Chests, Barrels, People and more. Though the game and places gets repitative at times but the plots are differents whenever im about to finish the secondary quests my list just pop out with new ones lol.

Hmmm who said it was short? It is however shorter than Origins.

Playtimes.....

Dragon Age:Origins = 177 hours
Dragon Age Awakening = 47 hours
Dragon Age 2 = 76 hours

See this link for my playtimes - Discuss Dragon Age 2

And YES I played everything side/companion quest possible in all games, including the "Exiled Prince" DLC in Dragon Age 2

I seriously thought I would never finish DA:O, there was always something to so. I did beat DA2 faster then I thought I would, and I got to level 22. It got a bit stale, since it all took place in kirkwall and sundermount.

Yeah it seemed like DA:O took me ages to finish. Dragon Age 2 was like I'm here now.... the end. In a funny kind of way I expected it to be shorter, but was very happy it wasn't. Yeah it's not as long as DA:O but at least it wasn't too short.

BTW I earned the "Easily Sidetracked" achievement in Dragon Age: Origins

nice!!! i too earned that coveted achievement. normally im not an achievement hunter, but i made an exception for DA:O. DA2 felt short, having said that, i really do hope they go all out with extra content.

boogieboy, I did every sidequest I could find on my first 2 playthroughs and found it quite short.

I actually don't hunt for achievements; I just play the game and what achievements I get I get. I just remember that one popping up when I did one too many side quests. It made me laugh

As for DLC I’m kind of iffy there. I didn’t get any of the paid DLC for Dragon Age: Origins, and the only reason I got the DLC for DA2 was because it was a day 1 release with the game. However I feel like it should have been included in the game, not a separate DLC.

Personally I feel like game companies are intentionally releasing shorter games with the intent of milking us dry with "DLC" content - stuff that should have been in the game anyway. I can not understand how you could have a day 1 DLC ready to sell with a day 1 game release unless you are trying to milk your customers for every penny you can get.

With that said, I have purchased nearly all the DLC (excluding the appearance packs) for Mass Effect 2, but this is stuff that's come out months later, plus I really do love Mass Effect. BTW there is a new DLC for Mass Effect 2 scheduled for release on 29 Mar 2011

Anyway even though I like the DA series it depends on when and what it is that may sway me to purchase more DA2 DLC (maybe).

I completely agree with you on the milking thing. But what can we do? That's a serious question, I've had it with EA. Too a lesser extent, I've also had it with bioware, messing up DA2. where's the love?

As a huge fan of Dragon Age I can't want to get Inquisition when it launches Nov. 18th of this year. Anyway the system requirements look interesting. Check out the "recommended" specs. And as I like to say, "minimum" just means the game will start :) Source: Dragon Age: Inquisition

So what do you people think of this game, those who have played it. I finished it, I can't say I love it, it was "iffy" to say at best. Not a great game. The whole process of "kill with skill" didn't really turn out to be as awesome as it sounded for me.
