Yes, all of that on "Game of Thrones." I get that it's based on the dark ages and there was misogyny then, but there's really no excuse for why we're supposed to find misogynistic assholes and rapists interesting, but the only woman in their entire universe who actually wants power is being portrayed as consistently evil. Just, um, no.

I haven't played "Awakenings." I admit that the lack of Morrigan just made me...not care. But I do plan on going back and playing that in the near future. Especially if there're awesome women there.

As much as I liked the story and characters of "Dragon Age: Origins" better, I have to admit that I ENJOYED "Dragon Age II" more. Part of which, I suspect, is that I was paying attention to the entire thing and not just...killing time until I could interact with Morrigan some more. (Me and my OTC tendencies, alas!) But I found the gameplay format easier to deal with. With the first one, I constantly had to have maps and sites open so I could navigate the world map, and in the second one, I never had to do that. And I liked Hawke better than the Warden, which made a huge difference, probably.
