Define "casual gamer."
You're going to be dying a lot in Dark Souls, and when you die you return to your last bonfire (similar to a checkpoint, except it's not a reload) and everything you had killed respawns (except for bosses). This is just a part of the game. I love Dark Souls, and I would recommend that but it really depends on what you mean by "casual gamer."
Dragon Age Origins is good too, though it can be long. Lots of choices, more emphasis on story and npc interaction, and isn't a die&retry type of RPG. If Dark Souls doesn't fit right, I'd recommend this one.
I also vote for Dragon Age Origin. It’s a good game and you will get the satisfaction that you needed.
I'm a Gamer not a Player!
i vote for Dragon Age Origins..
this game great ,you will like it too.
Don't Play with me coz I know I can play better than you!
Dragon age is mostly a cartoon movie and you'll spend more time watching than playing.
Dark souls isn't for casual gamers because you have to repeat areas over and over and it gets old after a while.
KoA is ok but very plain and dull, but probably the best of those choices for casual gamers.
Dragons Dogma is one of the best imo. Look it up.
Come play Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen with me everyone !
It has good character creation. Plays like Skyrim but has anime story line. Make pawns and share GT's and rent rent rent! Buy the expansion Dark Arisen not the original game (comes w/ og). Then share your Gamertags on our forums with your pretty or macho pawns to rent!
If your scared to purchase and commit pick it up at a video rental store. The original game data transfers over to the expansion if you decide to buy later.
