More Dragon Age NPC dialogue  
Because honestly, this stuff has to be the best written game dialogue EVER.

VERY occasionally, if you have right party configuration, all three NPCs running around with your character will engage in a conversation. Like this one, between Alistair, the knight who was rasied in a chaste chantry, but has a wonderfully sarcastic sense of humor, Zevran, the elven assassin who was raised in a brothel, and has the sort of flirtatious demeanor one might imagine to go with it, and Morrigan, the Witch of the Wilds with a poor opinion of most men, and pretty good ego:

Zevran to Morrigan: You are so beautiful, a woman like you in Antiva would be worshipped as a goddess!
Morrigan, coldly: I have no wish to be put on a pedestal.
Zevran: Why not? It is your right! In a city like Antiva, an exotic beauty like yours would be appreciated for all its worth, admired and worshipped for the rare flower it is!
Morrigan: Well, maybe...
Alistair to Zevran: Ok fine, you win.
Zevran, smugly: I told you.
Morrigan, coldly: I hate you all!

Not from my game, as I don't play a male PC, but from the Bioware forums:

Leliana: But now it's getting late. I think I might... Turn in early. I can't help thinking about how soft and warm my bedroll is.
PC: You don't want to talk to me anymore?
Leliana: Oh, of course I do. You know I enjoy your company. But it's getting a little chilly and I'd prefer to be in my bedroll.
PC: Well, I shan't keep you.
Leliana: You know, it would be nice if you came with me.
PC: What for?
Leliana: So I can show you my collection of pressed flowers, obviously.
PC: I didn't know you collected pressed flowers.
Leliana: I... Don't. Stop pretending you don't know what I want.
PC: I have no idea what's going on.
Leliana: Oh, the games you play. Listen, I want to spend the night with you. There, I said it.
PC: You want me to come to bed?
Leliana: Oh, now he gets it.

If you as the female PC are romancing Alistair, eventually the grandmotherly mage Wynn and he will have the following conversation:

Alistair: Why are you smiling like that? You look suspiciously like the cat who swallowed the pigeon.
Wynne: Canary.
Alistair: What?
Wynne: I look like the cat that swallowed the canary.
Alistair: I once had a very large cat, but that's not my point. My point is why are you smirking?
Wynne: You were watching her. With great interest, I might add. In fact, I believe you were...enraptured.
Alistair: She's our leader. I look to her for guidance.
Wynne: Oh, I see. So what guidance did you find in those swaying hips hmm?
Alistair': No no no, I wasn't looking at...you know her...hind-quarters
Wynne: Certainly.
Alistair: I gazed...glanced, in that direction, maybe, but I wasn't staring...or really seeing anything, even.
Wynne: Of course.
Alistair: I hate you. You're a bad person.

Conversation between Wynne, the grandmotherly mage, and Zevran, the irreverant elven assassin:

Wynne: *tries to get Zevran to admit he feels bad about killing people*
Zevran: *deflects with humor*
Wynne: Are you incapable of a single, serious conversation?
Zevran: I know. I am terrible, and it makes me sad. May I rest my head on your bosom? I wish to cry.
Wynne: You can cry well away from my bosom, I'm certain.
Zevran: Did I tell you I was an orphan? I never knew my mother.
Wynne: I give up.

OMG, I am so not a gamer, but all this you've been posting really makes me want to play! awesome!

And I think I need to write a fic about pressed flower collectiing. heh.

Greatest euphemism since the regenecy era's "Let me show you my etchings" - heh. :D

No need to be a gamer to play. From what I'm hearing on the forums, this game is converting people who have never played an RPG before.

I think maybe I might have to play that game. :D

Yeah. Warning, though: it is VERY ADDICTING!

My husband was all "You love it so much, it must be good. I should give that game a try one of these days, when I can tear myself away from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. But then I'd probably get all into it, and we'd have to trade off playing."

Me: "No, then we'd buy a second copy for you."

We had to do that for the MMO M played that I subsequently got addicted to (moreso than him!).

We had to buy me a copy of the game.

And my own computer to play it on.

LOL! I love those pieces of dialogue!

That game had better have captioning or subtitles...
