OK.. I must apologize to my readers... I have not really been reading books. I have been putting a ton of hours into this game, Dragon Age Inquisition. And by a ton of hours, I'm talking like 60 hours. EEK! I know. I didn't really have time for anything else. This game is sooo fun. I just loved it so much. I have played the other two Dragon Age games. The first one was a really great game too. The second game called Dragon Age 2 was only so so. Very short. Let's be honest.. after that game I didn't want to pay Dragon Age again. Then I kept hearing things about this game so I had to play it. This game on the other hand is clearly long and just totally worth my free time. So glad I gave the series another chance.
The beginning of the game is not good. When I started playing I thought... um... what is even going on. It took about 2-3 hours to really even get going. It starts with my character (who I get to create and I picked a mage/elf) going along with some sort of mark on her hand. No one knows how it got there and I find out this mark closes portals that demons come through. Terrible introduction Bioware! Then boom the whole world opens up and it becomes one of the best RPGs I've played in a long time.
The side quests are totally worth it. You unlock new conversations and plot points. I enjoy that each character has a tarot card that you see and as the game progresses and your relationships change the tarot cards change as well. I did feel that the collecting of plants and items sorta became a waste. By the end of the game I had a TON of stuff that I did nothing with. Perhaps I just didn't know how to do that part right. I wasn't able to play the multiplayer because I don't know anyone who owns the game and would play it with me. I did want to try it out though.
Well... now that I am done with this game I should get back to plenty of reading!
