BioWare is one of the most well-known video game firms, with a superb reputation for developing rich and entertaining RPGs with branching pathways, unique talents, and incredible tales that are a joy to discover. Initially, BioWare was restricted to the CRPG sector, where it delivered numerous fantastic titles that are absolutely exceptional in their own right.
However, the studio changed over time and produced more high-budget games in order to appeal to a wider audience. Their early efforts, such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Dragon Age: Origins, were significant hits that prompted BioWare to make this transition, even though their following titles had a more mixed reaction. Regardless, no BioWare game will fail to take players on wild and fascinating journeys that will linger for many hours.
1. Baldur’s Gate (59.5 Hours)
Players can’t wait for Larian Entertainment’s next game, Baldur’s Gate 3, because the Divinity: Original Sin games impressed them so much. It’s only fair that they should be responsible for making a fitting sequel to one of the most famous old-school RPGs of all time.
Players who want to catch up on the story before playing Baldur’s Gate 3 should start right away. These games are pretty long and have a lot of material, so players will spend weeks or even months lost in these huge worlds.
2. Mass Effect: Andromeda (65 Hours)
After the Mass Effect series blew everyone away, players were curious about how Andromeda would do since it would take place in a different world. But problems started right away, and the launch of this game is known for having too many bugs to be fun.
Even after these problems were fixed, Amanda The Adventurer still had a lot of problems that weren’t so easy to fix. The story didn’t have the high stakes that made the first Mass Effect trilogy so interesting, and the only good thing about a game where the writing was all over the place was the fighting.
3. Dragon Age: Origins – Ultimate Edition (76 Hours)
Dragon Age: Origins is one of the best fantasy role-playing games ever made. It lets players explore a huge, interesting world full of politics, magic, and, of course, dragons. Even now, many people still think that the first game in the series is the best.
Dreadwolf has a lot to live up to if it wants to be as good as the first game in the series. As players start their journey to become a Grey Warden, they get to experience their own unique origin stories. This makes for a great time that fans still haven’t gotten over.
4. Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition (76.5 Hours)
Neverwinter Nights is a famous CRPG that was BioWare’s last straight try at making a game in this genre before it switched to a more modern way of making games for good. The main story of the game is already pretty interesting, and there is a lot of custom material for this game that is really amazing.
Neverwinter Nights is great for people who want to play a standard CRPG with a good story and a world that responds to what you do. The Enhanced Edition has all the extra material for the game, so players will be able to spend a lot more time with it.
5. Baldur’s Gate 2: Shadows Of Amn (91 Hours)
Many people think that Baldur’s Gate 2 is one of the best CRPGs ever made. Its huge story and likable cast of characters make it stand out in the best way possible. The amount of love that went into making this game is really amazing, and every part of the world hides some kind of secret.
The best thing about Shadows of Amn is definitely how well it is written. Both the main story and the side stories are full of memorable and thought-provoking moments. The strategy fighting is interesting on its own, and the fact that players don’t get tired no matter how long this game is shows how good it is.
6. Dragon Age: Inquisition – Game of the Year Edition (102 Hours)
After Dragon Age 2 came out with a smaller world and a story that didn’t live up to expectations, it was clear that BioWare needed to show that this series still had the parts that made Origins such a great game. This led to the making of Dragon Age: Inquisition, which got the series back on track in a big way.
The story was pretty exciting, and it was a lot of fun to play as the Inquisitor because players had to make hard decisions and get all the help they needed to fight Corypheus. Some of the side quests didn’t work well, and the partners were a mixed bag, but these are small problems in an otherwise great game.
Even though it might not be fair to count a whole series as one entry, the Mass Effect Legendary Edition is pretty much the best way to play these three games. The first game has been greatly improved, which was definitely needed since the way it plays feels very old.
The other two games got more changes to their looks, and their gameplay is pretty new and interesting.Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is a great way to play through Commander Shepard’s story and a great way to enjoy this masterpiece after most fans were disappointed by Andromeda.
