Dragon Age 3 is coming out soon! Real soon! I had no idea! I like it when games sneak up on me like that.
I understand the argument for the type of character in the first game. Where you could not only choose your looks and class, but your race and your past and background. That said, I feel that having a character with an actual personality and spoken dialogue is the better trade-off. That’s my preference, at least. Though, I’ve never really been a big supporter of the silent protagonist.
