I recently bought Dragon Age Origins -- Ultimate Edition from steam, and aside from a few minor issues, I think I will end up enjoying it.
However, I'm a little confused about what I'm supposed to be playing -- when I go to "new game", I have a choice between Origins and Awakening:
What am I choosing here? Is the difference like that of Diablo II and it's expansion (where the expansion is the base game and then the expansion ((though the expansion offers items / classes / etc. not available in the base game))) or is the assumption that one plays through Origins first, and then plays Awakening (like a true sequel, e.g., Mass Effect 1 to Mass Effect 2)?
