Ah, didn't realize you were mainly referring to graphics with that statement. Thanks for clearing that up MysteryD :)
No argument from me about GoT being a partcular eyecandy, it sure isn't the prettiest game around. Do have to say through that I still think DA:O looks just fine for a rpg in all areas imho. Then again I don't pay all that much attention to how good combat looks when playing a game...will pay some attention to it on my next play through the series, now that you mentioned it. As for the voice acting/etc., I sadly never had the pleasure to play Fallout:NV, as it turned out too buggy to run on my pc. It's nice to know through that it's such a quality game in that aspect. Hopefully I'll get it to run someday down the road to find out 1st hand ;) Thanks again for taking the time to answer my question MysteryD!
You're very welcome! :D
I plays LOTS and LOTS of games - so yeah, you can expect me to pick-up on LOTS of things. Sure, I might be forgiving and might even overlook some things, depending on how I feel about a game and its strengths - but I'll still point things out. GoT: RPG
It's more than graphics that were weak in GoT: RPG - it's all 3 things that I listed:
1. the graphics quality (it's week and looks like it should've came out when DAO did) and art design (many not-important characters look bland);
2. the actual look of the combat (looks clunky & not that exciting to watch);
3. AND the voice-acting, writing, and prose can be stilted & all over the place (sometimes good, sometimes bad, sometimes horrible - flip a coin).
What things this game does well and actually better than actually many others, is this:
1. the actual story & plot itself
2. the characters
3. and the GOT universe & its Lore are all great.
If you play a game for THESE things, that's its strengths.
So, whenever that rumored Focus Humble Bundle hits, you might want to get GoT: RPG. Dragon Age series:
I think DA:O's graphics are generic-looking (for dark fantasy) & technically-weak even - just like the original NWN did upon release. They might've looked decent for that kind of RPG at that time, but they're dated when compared to many others.
IMHO, I actually preferred the actual graphics style and technical DX10/11 features that DA2 had going on. Unfortunately, DA2 is in so many ways NOWHERE as great as DAO. I'll try not to get into that discussion, as I could go on for plenty of walls of text about that - even though I did like DAO despite its laundry list of issues I had with it, I think it's VASTLY inferior to DAO. Fallout: NV:
Chris Avellone is involved, so you can expect much better narrative, story-telling, and characters. It's been one of his staples (and any company he is involved with), since back in his old Black Isle days (Fallout 2 and especially Planescape: Torment) up to his Obsidian days (most of SW: KOTOR 2; Alpha Protocol & Fallout: NV Ultimate Edition).
What kind of PC you running? If it's weak - I would suggest if you get a better PC and/or parts installed; and get the game patched up (and maybe even modded-up with any fan-made bug fixes that might be out there) - yeah, then you might want to play Fallout: NV Ultimate. I think it's a great game overall - and especially Old World Blues DLC deserves a mention for being one of the best DLC's that I've ever played.
