    Dragon Age: Origins, by far. You can mod DA:O to the point of an SCS-like experience.

    Pretty sure this is spawned from a conversation about PoE vs. DA:O. I don't know yet if PoE2 is dramatically improved. In any case I liked DA:O's combat, I'm not nearly as opposed to cooldowns as some here are. That said there was way too fucking much of it. PoE is much more healthily balanced.

    I couldn't make it out of the opening area of the Dwarven Origin in DA, which I'm told is the best origin, so....

    Yeah but you couldn't make it out of the opening area of Fallout 2 either, so your opinion matters not.

    I actually liked the combat system of DA:O a lot, it felt like the evolution of the Infinity Engine for the time (remember that World of Warcraft had like 20 million players using a very similar system) the cooldowns were the logical step for making sure all the classes felt viable and engaging for playing so fighters could be entertaining to play instead of just beign mindless tanks for wizards

    I always think that was the last “true” Bioware game since it’s development began before selling out to EA

    Grab the Codex by the pussy
    This is the deciding factor. Neither of the base games have sufficiently interesting encounter designs, but DA: O wins by potential.

    DA:O combat can be more fun, provided that 1) you go in blind and don't tryhard too much, and 2) heavily use of mods

    Deadfire has definitely more potential, but it depends on whether it gets large library of mods and whether Obsidian will support it as well as the first game.

    You confess to not getting far in Fallout 2 and haven't even played Fallout. Nothing you say on the 'Dex matters now.

    You really have some form of mental retardation huh? Chill the fuck out with this FO and JA2 worship, its been almost 2 decades since these games came out. Pretending that these games are perfect just illustrates how fucking laughable your opinions are.
    Lol? From your own blog, https://lilura1.blogspot.com/2017/03/Underrail.html

    "So far, so good. This is already infinitely superior to any lolUnities I've recently been stupid enough to inflict myself with. It's really quite refreshing and I've kept playing and not gone back to Fallout and Jagged Alliance 2 despite being constantly reminded of them while playing. Ergo, Underrail is offering up enough things that are different to compete for my time. Scratch that, I've gone back to Jagged Alliance 2, which is far superior to Underrail."

    Quality review; not to mention half the shit you outlined in the scenarios was just false. Keep pandering to the same retards that consider any opinion outside of one that corroborates with theirs is valid.
