Question for those who have played Dragon Age and WoW or Everquest or Morrowind/Oblivion: I'm thinking of picking up Dragon Age: Origins for my PC Wanted to know about standard load times and GUI... does your PC need to be state of the art to reduce load times, and what can be expected from a middle of the road PC? Also, what kind of view options are there? My preference is to be able to control the view similarly to WoW and Everquest and Oblivion, where you move using the "A, W, S, D" keys and moving the mouse moves your view if you right-click and hold down, and where scrolling the mousewheel up/down acts as a zoom in/out feature. Also, this enables your main character to remain in the center of the screen no matter what's going on, unless you physically change the view-type. Is this style of view/play possible in Dragon Age? Because I tried Neverwinter Nights 2, and quit after one day due to the lack of view-control I'm used to while playing Everquest and/or WoW. And finally, what has more total play time: Dragon Age, or Oblivion? Thanks My brother's middle-of-the-road PC plays Dragon Age just fine. Vista requires more from your PC than XP does. Load times are contingent on your hard drive fragmentation; defrag if you want them reduced. There is a view option like the one you're familiar with in WoW. It's the one I use, although if you zoom out all the way the controls turn into the RTS-type, with the ability to select multiple characters and scroll the screen. You can always zoom back in for controls to reset to WASD. Mousewheel controls the zoom. Oblivion has way more playtime. I still haven't explored every Ayleid ruin yet.
