Re: Dragon Age - Inquisition (all platforms)

The first one was a good game, just tedious as fuck if you mained mele. The second was button mash central and the end plot sucked complete balls. The characters and voice acting were awesome, though. I remain optimistic about this game, especially on the PS4.
