So I have just played the Dragon age 2 demo and loved it, my problem is I didn't really like Dragon age 1.
While I love games such as Mass Effect and Fallout I just couldn't connect with Dragon age 1. I felt the graphics were a slight distraction and the combat didn't excite me. I played the first game for around 7 hours and this could be part of the problem. Maybe I just didn't give it enough of a chance.
From playing the Dragon age 2 demo, it felt like a completely different game. The graphics were better and overall it felt more like Mass Effect 2 (my GOTY). Should I go back and try Dragon age 1 again or just move on to the sequel and if I do this will I understand what is happening in the story?
From playing both the Mass Effect games I would have felt lost if I'd only bothered to play through the second one without playing the first one from start to finish. Is this the same for Dragon age?
