My friends, recently I brought up the concept that both the Witcher and Dragon Age through design change are aspiring to be Skyrim.
Originally, Dragon Age was marketed as a CRPG style game. Then, with Dragon Age 2, it became an action console game. Then, with Dragon Age 3, is appears to be an open world action game.
The Witcher, originally a click based state style RPG. Moved on to being a Fable style console action game with 2. And now, is an out and out open world game.
Is it really wrong to claim that this is primarily due to Skyrim? It seems incredibly obvious this is the reason.
Opinions are required.
