Xbox 360 RPG of the Year - Dragon Age: Origins
Dragon Age: Origins may have been designed for the PC like its distant cousin Baldur's Gate II, but that doesn't mean the Xbox 360 version isn't impressive. After all, that which makes the game great is completely intact: the story, the realistic characters, and the uncommonly believable setting. Even the battle system and exploration translated pretty well; combat may not be on the Infinity Engine level, but it's challenging, deep, and satisfying all the same. And, even though the graphics aren't what gamers expect out of this generation and there's no multiplayer, DA:O comes through to deliver one of the greatest role-playing experiences of the year, one in which you can really become the role you choose and feel heroic or awful or, more likely in a game with as complex a sense of morality as Dragon Age: Origins, a little of both.
