PC RPG of the Year - Dragon Age: Origins
The PC is typically the most voluminous platform in terms of RPGs. Quality is another matter entirely. While 2009 was an alright year for the PC, a couple games stood out amongst the shiny, but not quite lustrous bounty of gems: Borderlands and Dragon Age: Origins. First announced at E3 of 2004, BioWare took its time creating this masterpiece, and they did not disappoint. Most gamers have grown cynical and disappointed with the PC over the years, and many have thrown in the towel entirely, opting for the console counterparts. However, if games like DA:O can make use of the potentially powerful platform, there's still hope. In the end we couldn't overlook BioWare's efforts and we clearly found it difficult to avert our eyes from the blinding glow that Dragon Age: Origins emitted.
