We live in times of remasters and remakes. The first few months of 2023 alone will see the release of high-profile games like Dead Space, Metroid Prime, and Resident Evil 4. With 2000 nostalgia at its peak right now, video game writer David Gaider calls in for a Dragon Age remaster: Beginning in 2009.
Gaider was the lead writer and set designer for BioWare’s Dragon Age: Origins and went on to work on both Dragon Age II and Dragon Age: Inquisition. ON TwitterGaider wrote, “If we’re all about re-mastering games from the start, what about Dragon Age Origins? Its graphics were behind even at launch…can you imagine that with a brand new PS5 – the bells and whistles of the era?”
If we feel like re-mastering games from scratch, what about Dragon Age Origins? Its graphics couldn’t even keep up at launch… can you imagine that with all-new bells and whistles from the PS5 era? 🥳

Responding to several other Twitter users, Gaider downplayed the likelihood of a Dragon Age remaster, saying “I suspect EA would only do this if they thought it would sell like *gold plated* hotcakes. They… never really got DA or understood why it sold better than Mass Effect, that was my impression.”
A writer too he said he would even be happy with “Inquisition-level graphics” and just wants “Morrigan doesn’t have protector arms and the sex scenes don’t look like someone banging puppets and yelling ‘now kiss!’ “
