Who else is really excited for this game?

#1 Edited by cbk486 (181 posts) -

I can't wait for another good, proper Bioware-style RPG. It's been far too long.

Everything I've seen of it so far reminds me more of KOTOR than of Origins, not that that's necessarily a bad thing. It could work out as long as the 'seize the strongholds' thing doesn't become too formulaic.

I'll definitely play it, but I don't go into any Bioware game with high expectations anymore. They're far from being the studio they once were.

It's easily the game I'm most excited for this year. I still love everything Bioware's made and have no doubts that this is going to be fantastic.

I didn't care for the previous installments, but this one looks interesting.

Looks like its shaping up to be a great game.

I'm interested in seeing how it ends up, and I will buy it because I am a sucker, but I can't get myself to be super hyped about another Bioware game.

My most anticipated game this year. I loved the first 2 so I can't wait for this one. I wasn't burned by DA2 and ME3 like other people were.

Can't wait to see the story and the exploration looks like a lot of fun. The only thing that concerns me is the combat. It looks sooooo fucking clunky.

Odds are, it won't be like the first one, which makes me sad. I have no problem with action-y games, but I would KILL for another DA game exactly like the first. It made me finally understand why people liked the Infinity engine games a long time ago, as I felt that DA:O was the modern version of those.

Pretty sure it will be the first disc I buy for my PS4, so yes, I can't wait for October.

I'm really excited. I get that 2 wasn't good but I think it's very clear why it was not. And Origins was one of the best games of the last generation.

This one looks like it's also not playing it safe which I'm very interested to see.

I'm super interested. I can't get excited though, they fucked up too bad, and they've said a lot of the right things, but not enough to keep me from being cautious. Still, it's one of my most anticipated games of the year.

@hunter5024:

Mass Effect 3's Citadel DLC went a long way for me (in terms of feeling good about the studio again).

My most anticipated game...I actually loved 2, and this one looks to have improved on it in every way.

#16 Edited by Veektarius (4813 posts) -

Yeah. It'd be nice if there were more competition in this genre, but since there's not, I can't help but anticipate it when one comes.

#17 Posted by Hailinel (24702 posts) -

I am not excited. I'd certainly like to be, as I enjoyed the first Dragon Age (save for the Fade), but Dragon Age II left a bad taste in my mouth and I'm not going to get my hopes up or hyped for Inquisition, nor am I going to preorder it. I'm going to wait until the game is released and wait to see what the reaction is. Not just from the press, but from players in general.

I'm cautiously optimistic. Another big production values RPG would be really nice. Let's see how it turns out.

#19 Edited by believer258 (11895 posts) -

I love what I've seen, but I still haven't found the drive to finish Dragon Age Origins. I guess "cautiously optimistic" might be the best way to put it, but I'm more excited than that implies. I just can't shake the fact that my feelings on DAO leap back and forth, from "really good old-school epic fantasy" to "boringly generic old-school fantasy with too much dialog and uninteresting combat".

But Inquisition's combat, from what I've seen, looks a little more action-y while keeping the pause-and-play tactics options of DAO. Maybe I'll enjoy it more. Also it looks fantastic.

EDIT: And I think the PC version is even supposed to have controller support. If the rest of my post didn't make old-school Bioware fans cringe, then that sentence certainly will.

First Bioware game Im not getting at release in a while. After DA2 and ME3 I can't do blind buys for Bioware anymore.

#21 Edited by Encephalon (1259 posts) -

I'm deeply cautious after DA2, but I enjoyed Origins so much that I can't simply write this one off. We'll see where we are this fall.

#22 Posted by Korolev (1706 posts) -

I can't be super excited after DA2 (which I enjoyed) and ME3 (which was pretty average). I have no doubt that BioWare can still make "Good" games, but they used to make GREAT games, and their games haven't been impressing me lately. ME2 was the last one I really liked. DA2.... it was okay, but it couldn't hold the smallest, dimmest candle to DA:O.

I haven't see much of Dragon Age: Inquisition, apart from the art-design and the graphics, which are admittedly very nice. But a pretty game does not necessarily equate to a good one. Now, I have heard some things about DA:I which I like, such as not being confined to one city, having more than 5 different environments and being able to play as someone other than Hawk (UGH. That character will never be remembered or praised). A large party and a big world all sound pretty good - sounds like a proper Dragon Age game, and not a side-story like DA2 seemed to be (I'd almost call DA2 "Hawk's Quest", because that's what 95% of it was about. So there's hope, I think, for DA:I. I will look forward to hearing more about it... but I'm not going to pre-order it. I'm wary and wiser. I'm waiting for reviews this time.

#23 Posted by ChaosDent (234 posts) -

I am not hyped. They seem intent on making it both action based and tactical. DA 2 did not give me any confidence they can achieve that. Even Inquisition is better than 2 (which I can hardly doubt!), it probably won't be what I want in the successor to the spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate. I'm definitely going to wait for a quick look, a WTF is and for the launch hype forum chatter to settle out before I really look into DA:Inquisition.

I am much more hyped for Pillars of Eternity, which does look like a true Infinity Engine successor.
