Can't get enough of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt? If so, you're most likely not the only one. With CD Projekt RED's RPG living up to the hype, it's time we matched it up against another "big" RPG released this year, and that's Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Come on, it isn't even close.
Well i think it's very close.
I clocked 100 hours on Dragon Age just finishing it last night. Thought it was fantastic. My only problem was I'd levelled up so much before I decided to take on the Dragons and the final mission that it was piss easy. That was my only problem with the game. I think enemies should've levelled with your character. Overall though, great game. Just wondering now, as I'm still getting through my backlog, do I jump straight into the Witcher or go for Bloodborne first?? Still haven't gotten around to getting BB yet.
I am a straight up and down heterosexual, and have played all DA games. Never was offended by its content. They don't force relationships on you. I you don't choose that path, it doesn't exist. With that out of the way, I am currently playing DA:I, and it's an excellent RPG.
Dragon age origins was an awesome game my goty for 2009 This is the PC version i am refering to. On console it was a dumbed down hack and slash. Da2 and da3 were worse i hated both of them not real da games at all. Rather just made to suit the wider audience. Dragon age was awesome when designed around Pc gaming. After which the franchise was ruined should be relabelled dragon effect. Now witcher is a PC franchise. Witcher 3 seems really good for now. How quickly the witcher franchise gets run into the ground to favor the wider audience after going console is anyones guess. sorry for the rant this just happens to any PC franchise that makes it to console.
Must be kidding. There is no contest. I wish DAI was anywhere close. Origins was closer at least. The writing and huge but empty feeling world with endless fetch quests simply pales compared to The Witcher 3.
for some reason none of them doesnt appeal to me (Dragon Age is very poor artistically and in gameplay mechanics..Witcher 3 forces you to play with one not very likeable imo protagonist, with not deep RPG mechanics)...but if it was to choose one is Witcher 3 by far ...the Dragon Age I is promoting and is haunted by all things i hate in contemporary gaming (lame trend agendas , boring , artless , 0 substance , 0 difficutly- challenge, poor gameplay mechanics, 0 immersion)
The Witcher 3 outclasses Inqisition in every possible metric you could judge a videogame minus the socialist BS Bioware loves to shoehorn into their games.
"socialist BS" LOL easy there Rick Santorum.
Well, i like socialist bs too so..
Another general misuse of the word socialist (unless referring to in game economic systems and ownership it's 100% capitalism). Dragon Age's random team banter is at least amusing. Witcher 3 is far more serious.
You are right. Dragon Age by a MILE. I want to create my own character and live my own plot - not play a prefabricated NPC. Dragon Age is one of the greatest RPGs since Balders Gate. I don't want to dodge and role and use a sword. I don't want to pick herbs and make potions. I want to fling fireballs and summon minions.
Why argue? get them both.
No competition... TW3 for the win.
Tough choice, but I do have to say Witcher I think. They are both quite different though.
Witcher 3 my personal GOTY.
And Dragon Age Inquisition was many game sites GOTY 2014... At that time very few said anything negative, a lot of the recent negativism is about the optional "fetch quests". We will see how Witcher III will stand the test of time... lets recheck in October/November. I think the fights looks very repetitive...
Witcher 3 but people shouldnt down play dragon age down just because of that. I love that were getting more of these massive rpg releases besides elderscrolls. Now we have witcher(if they continue through spinoffs), and dragonage to look forward to inbetween the wait of the next elder scrolls or fallout. Dragon Age was a fanstatic game that ive clocked close to 100 hours. You dont get that much entertainment value with most games. I also could play dragon age more were it not for the fact that I am too busy to play games constantly and by the time a new game releases i have to forget about my old titles(that are ussually half finished) as I add it to my expanding backlog.
I agree, they're both great games. What makes me personally prefer The Witcher 3 more is the fact the storytelling is a lot more engaging and the combat is more direct and nuanced, IMO. The world also looks better, and feels more vast and alive.
Same genre, but totally different gameplay. /shrugs
both are excellent although combat feels poor in DA with no feel to it. on the plus side DA looks incredible and runs better than W3
dragon age does have feel. the combat is the replication of your more classic strategey rpgs such as diablo it even has a strategy view. You even had a party, which means that could be used in a future dragon age game as an online coop experience. witcher 3 feels like your typical hack and slash. elderscrolls is just really simple. and for that some reason people think its bad. Its simple, and in my opion a good simple, it has all it needs. so how about we all enjoy the variety and just be happy not all games have the same system as that would get boring fast
da:I looked horrible to me.
The Witcher 3. DA:I was good, but it felt dead and was filled to the brim with filler. The Witcher 3 has a world that feels alive. It's almost like the world is still going on when you exit. The quests in the Witcher 3 all have their own unique story, and they feel meaningful.
TW3 feels like Game of Thrones. DA:I feels like Care Bears. I kid I kid. I'll be playing DA:I after I beat TW3, they are both two different games, set in fantasy. I do feel like TW3 has a GoTish feel.
Both fantastic games as far as I am concerned. I like the Witcher 3 a bit more but DA:I is pretty close.
Witcher 3 is better hands down
2 badass RPG games on deck. I'll go for both and and wish the ES was done in their fashions. I'm glad games of their caliber are out in the same year.
Witcher 3 kills dragon age. DA:I was the worst game I bought this gen. And I bought it digital so I'm stuck with it. At least I only paid $30 for it but still a disappointment
When you play through the side quests and main story missions in the Witcher 3 the storytelling is superb, DAI does an okay job with main missions. The gameplay in the Witcher 3 is much more fine tuned due to it being built around one class, and it feels much more refined and far less clunky than DAI, however IMO no RPG is on the same level as the Soul games. Also the Witcher 3s world is amazing with big cities that require no load times to enter a door, which is a amazing and if a game like Fallout 4 could pull that off I would be thrilled. I have not beat DAI, but from what I have played its worlds do not compare
