I'm holding out for the inevitable GotY with all that DLC and the expansion(s?)

I've been trying to find a deal on this but haven't found anything significant. I'm considering going for this. Does anybody know of any better deals?

Yup. I have it on PC already, but I haven't bought any of the DLC, nor did I pre-order the expansion even though I think the game is great. GOTY on steam will be the way to go.

Same here, I've got too much to play right now and I'd rather wait for the final game with all the added content.

How would this game ever be GOTY??? They are going to need to do something like Resident Evil Gold edition because calling this game anything more than game of the week is false advertising:lol:

This is the best you're gonna see on this game, at least for a digital download. I'll probably finally get it. It is a lot of game for the money, even at full price.

I'm pretty sure this is the cheapest I've seen the PC version on sale for so far, anyways I finally broke down, I was specifically waiting for <$30 but this was close enough.

A GoTY equivalent version is a sure thing but that'll be available late this year at the very earliest, and will cost more than $30 either way.

Oh man, I'm so tempted with this. I already have the Xbox 360 version, but I've been wanting the PC version now that I fixed my computer. This is the cheapest I've seen it yet. I know as soon as I buy it though I'll see an even better deal.

This is relatively the same price it's always wound up as during sales since the holidays. Meh.

I'm kind of surprised by everyone saying this isn't a good deal? I dunno, I think it's a good deal at least in my opinion, I loved Mass Effect and have really been wanting this game, I think I'll pick it up at least :)

You clearly have no idea what the hell you are talking about. DA:O is a fantastic game, and was critically acclaimed last year, including winning PC Video Game of the Year.

Beat it a few weeks ago after oh ~63 hours, which is rare for me, i get tired of playing the same game real quick. After that many hours, I am completely NOT in the mood for the expansion, I'm totally satiated. Not replaying it either, I'm done and done. Will wait for DA:O 2, still have Mass Effect 2 to buy anyway.

You do realize saying it won "PC Game of the year" means nothing because anyone can give anything that award, right?

It means something because they can slap it on the box and say "X says this is GOTY!"

I suppose it winning PC GOTY from IGN, Gamespot, the VGA's, and I'm sure other places means nothing though, right?

However it does open the door for them to release a GOTY edition if a popular website or gaming mag named it PC game of the year.

I think you misinterpreted what I meant, I mean any game can be called GotY from anywhere because that's an unofficial award. I'm not discrediting Dragon Age, I'm discrediting the title of GotY.

well obviously, almost every year 5 or more games come out with "GoTY" versions, if it truely was the best game of the year then only one could come out a year. But it doesn't matter because companys are only going to brag about a GoTY if it was from a good source like a popular magazine or website. Still for the most part, any game marked with "GoTY" is a worth game of the title.

A while back I got it through EA (DD) for $26 with ME1.

I did misunderstand a bit, but I do think GOTY means something when it comes from a mainstream source that is generally regarded as having fair reviews. Now something like Ryukahn's GOTY award wouldn't mean jack, I definitely agree. ;)

yeah but that's a self joke, the developers knew they were making a terrible game when they were making it. There was never a standard edition, they released it as a GoTY as a joke :P.

If you bought the expansion from that Dell thread today along with it you could get them both for a little over $50. Not too bad...

With upcoming release of Steam on Mac, this becomes so intriguing with Steam Play. According to valve, I will be able to play this on my Mac because there is a Mac compatible version available.

May just purchase it, and sit on it until Steam on Mac is release.

I need something to run on my MacBook Pro, plus I've read the game plays better on PC/Mac as opposed to console.

Thanks for the info. I saw this but passed on it because I've always been wary of the EA online store. Aren't there limited downloads and stuff?
