"There’s been a depressing trend this year of big-budget games falling short of expectations. Videogames are big business, with millions spent on advertising and getting people as excited as possible about upcoming titles. That makes it all the more of a letdown when those titles come out and they’re mediocre, or even good, but far from living up to the hype.
There have been exceptions, of course, like Mario Kart 8. After seeing Dragon Age: Inquisition at E3 and speaking to creative director Mike Laidlaw, I was hopeful that this would be another game to buck that trend - and it well and truly has, exceeding even my lofty expectations.
Put simply, Dragon Age: Inquisition is a masterpiece."
