What do you guys think, GOTY dragon age or save for 2nd one?
GOTY Origins, by a fucking mile.
2 has been dumbed down a ton. No choice of race, less dialogue options due to voice acted main characters, looks like shit (whether this is due mostly to the awful new art direction or the decrease in graphical quality they did to stop it running like shit on the 360, you can decide), day 1 DLC, preorder only DLC, but my favourite is that they responded to complaints about some sections of DA:O being too repetitive not by spicing up the gameplay, but by just making it shorter.
I'm not sure what the GOTY Origins has, but as long as it has the main game + Shale's DLC + Golems of Amgarrak you're sound. Awakenings is okay if you just want more of the same after finishing the main game (it's so long that you probably won't), and the other DLC is all pretty forgettable, but you need Shale's DLC since it has an extra party member who is actually pretty involved in some quests, and you need Golems of Amgarrak because of it's balls to the wall difficulty, which is a great challenge for a max level character.
