8. Dragon Age: Origins

Thanks to the likes of The Lord of the Rings, Dungeons and Dragons, and Game of Thrones, we’ve all dreamt of diving sword-first into the whimsical world of medieval fantasy. Dragon Age curbs that itch with its deep story, developed characters, generous customization, and tactical combat. One playthrough is barely enough to have lived the world of Thedas.

True to its “Origins” title, the game largely focuses on the race and background of your character. You can choose between three classes and two backgrounds for a human, elf, or dwarf. Each option offers a unique story that affects side quests, dialogue, and how the world reacts to you. For example, elves are discriminated against and often referred to as “knife ears”.

Here there be dragons.

Tactical gameplay allows you to pause, scroll out, and issue commands during combat. And extensive scripting gives you full control of your companions’ AI. You can really get creative with your allies’ behavior during combat. Such as by sicing your war hound on ranged opponents or having your tank attack anyone who targets your mage.
