First off, there's just way too much talking scenes compared to playing... If I wanted to sit and watch something, I'd watch a movie or tv or something... I like my video games to be playable and enjoyable, not over the top boring.
Then, when it's not over the top chatty, I end up stuck in so many places where it doesn't give you any clues what you are supposed to do. That is my all time biggest peeve in games... When they don't give you any direction at all, and so far, Dragon Age origins is the worst of all I've ever seen.
I'd like it if if video game companies would actually make a decent game these days that didn't require you having to go online for answers, or look into guide books or something.
I apologize for this rant, but i don't think I've ever found a game that pisses me off so much... I highly doubt I'll even try Dragon Age II at this point!
