Dorian is such an amazing character and a great love interest too. I love his contradictions and his snarkiness, and ... just him in general. It's hard to think about what would have happened if my Quizzy hadn't met Dorian and romanced Cassandra instead but I'm sure she would make a lot of Quizzies very happy as she is so awesome.
I know it's a matter of taste but I can't understand why Solas is so popular. (Probably the angst factor!) In any case he's putting up a good fight for bald men everywhere - no need to feel self-conscious if you lack hair!
If I play through again, I'd be tempted to play a male character again as none of the romance options for women seem that exciting to me. I'd probably romance Josephine if I played as a woman though as she is one of the more realistic characters, and generally lovely!
I never liked Solas, even before I finished my first run through. He seemed stuck up and snobbish to me. And then when I KNEW... well, I couldn't even finish his LI story...it was just nothing but angst, which I hate. I have enough drama in my real life, I don't need it in a make believe world I go to for fun....
Well, I don't mind a bit of angst for flavouring, but a whole story based on angst would be like eating a bucket of cake icing with no cake. I think Dorian's story had the right amount of angst for me.
There is no basis for comparison. My one finished character, mage Trevelyan romanced Cassandra. I have Lavellan with Dorian and Adaar with Iron Bull, but not finished yet, so there is no complete picture of it.
Actually, I may end up making more specific polls to further break down the general sentiments of these I've already put up. I'm trying to assemble a sort of stats sheet on the group that I hope to show everyone at some point.
This is so unfair. I'm a big fan of LI stories in this game and I can't so easily choose one... They all have their up and downs... Dorian's is so tender, such a good way of portraying a healthy relationship that withstands space, time and the hardships of life... Cullen is just a puppy, and he deserves to be happy and fully love after all he went through before; and the relationship with him is just full of support and understanding, despite differences of opinion and upbringing, and they get a happy ending, which is really a gem in this world... And then you have the egg... Solas is the most heartbreaking relationship you could ask for, so I naturally went with it as soon as I knew I can't really say more without spoiling, but suffice to say it's a definite must imo. I love all characters and I haven't tried the other ones, but I've seen some on youtube because I can't resist Cass is a really nice one too, has it's funny moments, as does Bull, but both of them are tough fellas that need some lovin' I imagine Blackwall is probably pretty heartbreaking too, considering his story. I've also seen some footage of Josie's and it's quite sweet. And I'm clueless about Sera, as I usually am
