5 Things We Want to See in Dragon Age 3: Inquisition

From the PlanetPlayStation.com feature article:

"Earlier last week, BioWare officially announced it’s working on the third installment of its popular role-playing game franchise, Dragon Age, and it’s turning to fans for help. “We’ve visited message boards, read reviews, and we’ve gone to events to have direct face to face conversations with some of our most passionate fans. We’ve been listening, and we will continue to listen,” Executive Producer Mark Darrah wrote in an open letter on the official website." (Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Will buy this game on one condition that the people behind 2 are not involved in 3 ,cause that game sucked arse.

I disagree. If it had come out first and we had never heard of Dragon Age Origins, it would have been viewed as a serviceable RPG, because it was. There wasn't anything terrible about it. Combat was fun, areas started to get a bit repetitive, storey was nothing to write home about - but it was a fun game.

But the problem was Dragon Age Origins was fantastic and to me, felt like a spiritual successor to the Baldur's Gate franchise. When you hold DA2 up to the first, yeah...it's clearly not up to the standard set by the first game, but that certainly doesn't mean it was a bad game in my opinion. I enjoyed it and the only problems I really found were all to do with things they did differently from the first game that I missed.

If you're an RPG fan and haven't played either, I'd say start with the second, have fun and then play the first game. The second was certainly worth a play through for me.

As for the third game - Bioware, rpg players like loot. We like to manage our party inventory. We don't mind starting off in rags, because then we appreciate it more when we find that super rare armour that looks freakn cool, because we've been running around wearing a sack up to this point. You want to streamline party inventory, put a checkbox in there for those who don't care, but please, for the love of god, let us take control of our party equipment.

And none of this "only Mike Hawk can use that sword" crap. I get using this every now and then depending on class where it makes sense, but come on. That other guy can swing a sword just as well as my character can. That was maddening.

I agree that DA2 was a pretty servicable RPG. I enjoyed it despite its flaws and I'm looking forward to DA3. I'm a little worried, though, about what changes EA will try to implement (see #5).

areas started to get a bit repetitive, story was some what a little blah. that must been my problem i was expecting DO2 to be as good as the first. may have to play them in the order that you have recommended before DO3 arrives.

that was well said and even though i didnt like 2 and admittedly i bashed the hell out of it, id agree completely that most of that hatred stemmed from having played the first, first lol. to me DA:O is a 10. its one of the few games id truly give that score to and to this date still one of my fav games ever. tied in first as the best game this gen imo ( dark souls/the witcher 2 being its competition )

anyway, agree with every point you made. bubble up

#6 Ability to save main chacters mother (that part was horrific) lousy city guards can't do anything right <eyes Aveline>

I want difficult relationships. Really enjoyed trying to get Morrigan to like me. But in 2 everyone kinda automatically liked you and wanted to sleep with you.
SolidGear3  +   919d ago
The first one bored me. I tried playing it twice but just couldn't get passed the flaws that were corrected in the second game. The second game I absolutely loved and even got the platinum trophy within a month after launch. I'm seriously looking ahead to the third game.
