Dragon Age Inquisition

I'm curious to know everyone's thoughts on this. DA Origins was amazing. It's probably my favorite game of all time. DA 2 was entertaining on it's own, but was a terrible follow-up to Origins and had it's share of issues (dialog wheel, recycled scenery, the fact that you can't leave Kirkwall, being everyone's errand boy, etc). It had it's good points, too. It was a lot of fun to play a mage, graphics are decent. But the story line and character development was seriously lacking.

I follow Bioware on Facebook and Twitter and they've been releasing little tidbits here and there. The main thing I have a problem with is their female Qunari mage. OK, so females are very restricted in what they are able to do within the Qun. Mages are supposed to be chained and controlled. So, isn't a main character that is a female Qunari mage against DA's whole mythology and storyline? Unless she's part of the Tal Vashock, I guess. I also heard that they weren't going to allow romances at first, but apparently they are going to now. A lot of the gals are upset that you can't have a romance with Varric, which I find amusing. I'm sad that we will never again be able to play as the Warden, and I just have this sinking feeling that they will never explain what happened with the Warden and the Champion (if you recall, they both disappeared). From what I've seen with the screen shots and videos they've released the graphics look really good. But honestly I'm more concerned with storyline, character development, and game play.

What are your thoughts? Will you pre-order? Buy new? Wait to see if you can find it used?

Well I am pretty good at figuring out games so let me explain. I will keep it short. Dragon Age: Origins was 5 total years of development. Dragon age 2 was like 2-3 years at the most. (It was rushed)

Dragon Age: Inquisition is like 3-5 years development cycle and the environments will be big and wide open. It won't disappoint. Don't take my word for it though just wait for a review if you are afraid.

I think it can be the best Dragon Age but Origins will always have a special place because of the Grey Warden storyline.

To be honest, I'm going to wait a good while before buying it. Maybe when (or if) the release a GOTY-esque version.

Well they might actually reject the Qun, some of them might just do that. I also agree with you on DA O and DA2

I heard in an interview that Bioware was saying they're pulling from Skyrim because it's such a good game. But I don't want another Skyrim. I want another fantastic game in the Dragon Age series. I hope they don't wreck it.

It's not another Skyrim, they were talking about the size of the world

I'm personally looking forward to it. Origins was amazing, 2 was ok. Hopefully Inquisition is at least better than 2 was.

I liked the size of the world in Origins. I guess I just don't feel like this series should be open world. I guess that's what people want, though.
