[Game] Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age InquisitionSo… picking from three differently worded options that basically mean the same thing in a stiff world that’s bloated with so many tedious and redundant filler side-quests that you can barely find where’s the story at is what constitutes role-playing these days? They knew they weren’t making a MMORPG, right? Is there anyone from the original Baldur’s Gate 2 team still working in Bioware, or are they all dead at this point?

Dragon Age: Inquisition is still a relatively competent game that has a lot of fun things to offer, but a revival of role-playing genre — something DA: Origins promised and nearly delivered — it is not. I’d rather call it a nail in the coffin.

Positive: Negative:
Beautiful visuals Cluttered with redundant side-quests and tedious options
Extremely well-written dialogue Generic, dumb story
Good characters Generic, dumb villain that has no presence whatsoever
Almost no actual role-playing
A couple of cool set-pieces (noble court and a few character quests)
Repetitive game-play
Ridiculously tasteless sequel bait at the end
