Dragon Age: Origins | Origin | Free
Dragon Age: Origins is that rare thing, a Tokien-esque dark fantasy game that makes its universe and canon feel fresh, vital and new while still dealing with the clichés we know and love. It also happens to be a truly brilliant RPG with great characters, plenty of player choice and the ability to create your own character from numerous races and backgrounds with unique playable backstories.
And it's FREE! Go get it, though don't bother with the sequel. Thanks and credit to gemsa @ HUKD!
