Dragon Age: Inquisition (3rd Person RPG PS4 Game 2014)

So I repurchased a PS4 just to play this game. Funny how you get into certain moods sometimes. Was it worth the hassle? Sorta. The thing that sucked about it was that on the PS4, the controls kinda sucked. I didn't like how combat was handled, the pausing/strategic view wasn't well done, and yeah I think it was meant to be controlled from a PC's setup with a KB.

The story and gameplay were good, but I liked Dragon Age: Origins more. The gameplay got super repetitive after only a few maps though. The areas to explore were huge, but they all sorta felt the same. In addition to this, you always had to spend a ton of time upgrading weapons, armor, runes, etc or else you'd start sucking as you leveled more. I remember having to do this type of stuff with Mass Effect as well, but with that Bioware game it seemed way more entertaining and quick. Anyway this game was fair even though it was clunky. I ended up going on a vacation, coming back, forgot where I was or what I was doing, tried to take on a dragon, got my ass handed to me because nobody followed orders like they were supposed to, then I ejected the disc and promptly took a picture of it so that it could be sold.

My only advice to anyone who wants to play this game is to play it on the PC if you have a choice, and if you don't, do not go on vacation and let this game sit for too long or else you'll forget everything about it.
