I pre-orderd and purchased Dragon Age Inquisition the week it came out last year. Just last night Jan 12th, I finally made it to Skyhold. The time on the save clock in which it took me to reach Skyhold. and 13 minutes. Now some of you might think that's absurd or impossible. Impossible, definitely not! Crazy...maybe. Yes I know everyone suggested leave the Hinterlands and get out, but I'm a completionist and I will deliver every damn flower to every grave that I can lol. Mind you I created about 5 characters before I really stuck through to my male Qunari Warrior with sword & shield. I spent at least 6 hours on my original character and just felt like I needed to try other classes or build. Luckily I didn't spend even more time on that!
Back to the topic, hours spent. Seriously upon reaching Skyhold, I felt like I just beat Dragon Age Inquisition. After all of the cut scenes at Skyhold, I felt like I was about to start playing Dragon Age Inquisition 2: Skyhold lol. I tweeted our old friend Patrick my hours to Skyhold and he replied - "Holy crap. You’ve only just opened up the game!" I noticed that was true when I saw the map with tons of exclamation marks. I just have no idea where to begin. I did read elsewhere to find the specialization quests ASAP. So I plan on doing that when I get some free time.
I feel like this game has been definitely worth my money, when you look at time spent. If you could believe me, I actually rushed through certain things. I didn't read every book or page. Though I tried..., but they were just tooooooo long and the tiny text. All of the conversations I allowed to flow as normal. There was just so much before Skyhold, even if it is considered a tutorial - I felt like it was all part of the main game. My character is level 13 and I'm just barely going to begin my journey in the Skyhold leg of the game. I'm betting it's going to be another 100 hours or so of my time before I finish this game. I'm looking forward to it.
So I ask my fellow gamers, how many hours have you put into Dragon Age Inquisition so far? Do you feel the time is justified or not? For those that feel there isn't "enough" content - what else are you looking for? Why do you ignore the content outside of the main quest line?
