I want to like this
I bought Dragon Age on release day, eagerly installed it and dove into one of the backstories.
And I basically haven't played it since.
Don't get me wrong, there's nothing inherently bad about the game, but I do find a certain set of the inevitable issues it does have to ruin the experience for me.
The combat is a slog. Most of the environments have way too much grey. The setting is basically keystone Medieval Europe fantasy, a setting I'm getting increasingly tired with.
I do however, love a lot of the party members. On the whole, they're well-written, interesting and have great voice acting. Also a fair few of the moral choices are at least interesting and have consequences that can catch you off guard.
But I just get really goddamn bored of the combat. And the combat is the main focus of the game.
I want to like this. I really do. But it just doesn't work for me.

There is a pause function on PC, exactly like in every previous Bioware rpg. The console port for this game was supposedly really terrible so I guess they didn't bother figuring out how to adapt the parts that are supposed to work with a mouse for controllers.
